Facial aestheticsOur non-surgical facial treatments include anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, which help to minimise lines and plump up areas of reduced elasticity. By coming to us for these skin enhancing treatments, you can be sure of receiving the highest standards of care. Our dentists have an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and, as we are a registered dental practice, they are used to working in a regulated, clinical setting.
How they help
- Skin appears more youthful
How they work
Anti-wrinkle injectionsWe numb your skin and use an ultra-fine needle to deliver small amounts of a purified protein to specially targeted areas. This treatment is particularly suitable for ‘dynamic’ wrinkles, which are produced by repeated facial movements such as frowning and laughing. The injected protein stops certain muscles from contracting and, by doing so, prevents creasing of the skin. Treatment only takes around 10-15 minutes, there is no need for a recovery period and the effects will start to show within a couple of days.
Areas that can be treated
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
Frown LinesFrown lines are the vertical lines which sit between and above the eyebrows. They are sometimes referred to as ‘bunny lines’.
Forehead WrinklesForehead wrinkles are the horizontal lines which stretch along the forehead. They are a by-product of ageing and become more pronounced over time.
Crow’s FeetCrow’s feet are the fine lines and wrinkles that extend from the side of your eyes towards your temples, although most people like to call them laughter lines.
Dermal fillersAfter applying a numbing cream, we inject the gel-like filler to smooth lines, plump up areas of lost elasticity or define lips. Fillers are ideal for ‘static’ wrinkles, caused by the loss of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Treatment should take no longer than 15 minutes, results are instant and you will soon be free to get on with your day.
Areas that can be treated
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lip enhancement
Nasolabial FoldsNasiolabial folds are commonly known as ‘smiles lines’ or ‘laugh lines’. They are two skin folds which run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Marionette LinesMarionette lines are wrinkles that run from the side of the mouth towards the jaw line.
Lip EnhancementLip fillers can be used to enhance the volume and definition in the lips. It is suitable for anyone who would like fuller, more aesthetic lips.
How to maintain your more youthful lookKeep skin topped up – results are effective, but not permanent. To keep looking younger for longer, you may wish to have top-up treatments every few months. If you have regular anti-wrinkle injections, repeat treatments will not need to be as frequent.
