Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is already present naturally, throughout the body. Natural hyaluronic acid is present in the skin, the joints, the eyes and other organs. It acts as a water holding sponge and hydrates the tissues. It also has shock absorbing properties.

Over time and with age, the levels of HA in the body become depleted. This becomes very noticeable especially in the skin and the lips. On the face and neck, the skin starts to lose volume and becomes more flaccid. In some areas the skin starts to sag and some features lose their shape and 3-D projection. For example, the lips become thinner and flatter.

Synthetic HA dermal fillers are almost identical to the natural HA produced by the body. They are non-permanent fillers and are broken down in the body to carbon dioxide and water, which are then excreted naturally.

This type of dermal filler, like its natural counterpart, acts a water holding sponge. When injected into the tissues at various depths, it plumps them up and reduces unwanted folds and wrinkles. By softening or eliminating the signs of ageing, the face looks naturally younger. Its placement also causes the added benefit of boosting collagen production in the skin where it is placed. This process is called ‘collagenesis’. It adds strength to the skin.

The dermal fillers can also be used to change the shape of a facial feature, such as a nose, without resorting to surgical procedures. There are many ways that this material can be used to improve the appearance of the face and the texture of the skin. Below are some examples:

I have been visiting Abdul Louise and the girls at Yorkshire Dental Suite since it opened ,on every visit I am made to feel special and pampered. No one was more afraid of the dentist than me but Abdul has restored my faith and trust in dentistry to the fact that I now have 4 in plants. No longer worried about being caught on camera with an awkward smile . Every time I go I'm offered coffee cakes cold drinks it's lovely turning up to be made to feel special ,so looking forward to my treatments on Saturday . The setting is tastefully furnished and welcoming and knowing Abdul as long as I have I recognise is a trait of his professionalism. Abdul strives to do his best for everybody offering dentistry and treatments , Susanne .

Warm friendly atmosphere, staff are extremely helpful. In my first consultation the dentist really took his time to explain all options. The YDS is worth a visit, I would highly recommend this family run business. All the best x

Loved the whole experience. Lovely looking practice, nice reception and team. Had troubles at a previous practice, came in and explained this to Affan who helped me out and kindly looked after costs and made sure I could get my smile sorted quickly. Such a lovely practice. Thanks so much guys!

After really struggling to find a dentist who could remove a very painful wisdom tooth the fantastic team at the Yorkshire dental suite were able to help. A wonderful service who really put me at ease before and after the procedure. Would really recommend to anyone looking for a private dentist!
