Derma Fillers

They are soft injectable gels used for facial aesthetic treatments. It is injected into the skin to create a softer natural look. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted creases, contour and create volume, create fuller lips (lip augmentation) and to the skin. Dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body. It is a long lasting but not permanent treatment. Popular areas for treatment include frown, marionette (mouth to chin) or nasolabial (nose to mouth) folds.

When used in a comprehensive program combined with botulinum toxin, and Chemicals peels, an impressive change in many of these characteristics brought on by aging can often be made with very little invested time, risk and recovery.

Most of the more commonly known ‘Injectable’ fillers fall into the temporary to semi-permanent categories. Materials such as human fat, collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid and polylactic acid all have a role in the temporary filler category. However, among them the hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in your body and actually is found in nearly every living thing. For that reason it is often a good choice for those searching for a treatment of this kind. It has a very low incidence of reactivity and is extremely well tolerated by most patients. The material presents itself and is delivered to the desired area in the form of a gel by injection. When injected properly within the dermis, it acts as a physical cushion to support the overlying tissues which have lost volume and elasticity due to the aging process. By the nature of its organic chemical structure it will not only add support to the tissues but is thought to promote collagen formation as well as bring moisture to the surface of the skin. Depending on the product and the area being treated, hyaluronic acid based fillers can provide a lasting effect often for up to 12 months.


Teeth Whitening

Whitening is a process where the tooth become "visible whiter"  to a lighter shade.. This is done by using a bleach such as a carbamide peroxide or/and hydrogen peroxide either at home in special mouth guards or  in the dental chair  at the surgery. The active ingredient passes through the dental enamel, breaking down stains by chemical oxidation. The process can take some time so it is important to finish the treatment as directed.

Usually the process involves to wear the whitening trays overnight for two weeks and then a final 40 minute treatment at the surgery. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration. It is not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal or porcelain crowns, etc.
