At the Centre of Dental Excellence, we pride ourselves on having cutting edge treatments. Read on to find out about some of the different facial aesthetics treatments we have on offer.
It is to be expected that as we age, we will lose some of the fullness of our soft tissue in the face. This can result in a number of lines, folds, lip thinning, cheek drooping and even a loss of fullness in the temples. Fillers can be used to correct this loss and to refresh your face, giving it a more youthful appearance. Fillers target the deep, static wrinkles on your face and can also be used in conjunction with botulinum toxin (Botox) which smooths out lines caused by movement. They can also be used on scars.
Fillers are made from a natural substance produced in the body, hyaluronic acid. Because it is a natural product it not only reduces wrinkles, but it also hydrates the skin, with results lasting between 4-8 months. You can get back to work within 24 hours of treatment and local anaesthetic is used when you are having the treatment to make you as comfortable as possible. Your skin will probably also feel more supple following treatment and when you’re fresh faced and radiant, you should be feeling delighted that you gave it a try.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) is made up of proteins that are produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is given to patients using very fine needles. The procedure is quick - 30 minutes - and you can return to work immediately. You may feel some discomfort from the treatment for around an hour following it, but then you should be good to go! The effects of Botox last for around 3 months. As medical experts, at the Centre of Dental Excellence, we want you to feel confident and happy with the results you achieve. Our extensive knowledge of anti ageing treatments means that you will gain natural looking results. What many people also don’t know is that Botox is used for both cosmetic and medical purposes. It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but it also reduces muscle spasms, excessive sweating and can be used to treat chronic migraines and headaches. Choosing Botox can be a game changer!
Peels are chemical solutions that remove the dead skin cells from your face, leaving you with a fresher and brighter looking appearance. They leave your skin looking smooth and allow the regeneration of epidermal and dermal layers. Peels can be used to treat a variety of issues such as photo-ageing and fine wrinkles, superficial scarring, acne vulgaris, rosacea and milia, as well as pigmentation disturbances such as melasma. If this sounds up your street, book in for a consultation to find out more about how we can help.
