Several of our dentists are qualified to provide a range of facial aesthetic treatments. You can arrange to have a consultation with either Louise Beaton at St Johns Road Dental Practice or Alaa Mohamed at East Craigs Dental Practice and they can talk through which treatments will provide the best results for you. Every skin type is different and we want to deliver the best results for you and your skin
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process and can also be accelerated by exposure to the sun, excessive stress, diet, and weight loss. These wrinkles can be ‘static’ – caused by the gradual loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, or ‘dynamic’ – created by repeated facial muscle movements, such as laughing and frowning.
However, our non-surgical facial treatments help to eliminate these lines and plump up areas of lost elasticity.
Several of our dentists are able to offer a very effective way to treat wrinkles. Minute amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected using a micro-needle. These injections relax specific muscles to stop the skin from creasing and are an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles, particularly in the upper part of the face. They can be used to treat the following:
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and the effects will usually show within approximately 14 days. The results last up to three or four months. The number of injections will depend on the area being treated and, as these are precisely targeted, they produce natural looking results. There is also no need to take any time out to recover after the procedure.
Dermal fillers can enhance the appearance of skin by smoothing lines and plumping areas of lost elasticity. They can be used to achieve a variety of rejuvenating results including restoring a youthful fullness and definition to lips or contouring the cheeks.
There is no need for a recovery period and the results are instant, lasting from several months up to a year.
