Put The Spring Back Into Your Skin!

See how facial aesthetic treatments can give you a great look for the warmer months ahead

Dentist Dr Sarah Nackasha of The Dental Centre BedfordAs members of the ‘Ace Group’, we are delighted to offer our patients safe and proven facial aesthetic treatments that can help you to have younger looking skin. This alone is a significant benefit but many patients also tell us that it has given them a new lease of life and made them feel more confident in themselves, especially when socialising. We are proud of the results that we have achieved and are especially happy for those who are now sporting a more confident smile.

Although facial aesthetic treatments are often thought to be mainly used by women, there is a growing interest from men. Few of us like to look older, especially after a certain point, and whether you are male or female, we are sure that the facial aesthetics team at The Dental Centre Bedford will be able to help you achieve your aims.

The two main types of therapies that we offer here are anti wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers. The first step to take is to arrange a consultation so that we can develop an action plan based on your requirements and to ensure the most appropriate treatment for your needs.

Anti wrinkle treatments

The main anti wrinkle treatment that we use is Botox, an established and successful method for rejuvenating ageing skin. It acts by paralysing or relaxing the muscles which cause both wrinkles and lines to appear on your face. The idea of paralysis may appear a little frightening and you may be familiar with the ‘frozen face’ appearance that has often appeared in the media. There is no doubt that results like this can be achieved if you use an inexperienced practitioner, but you need not worry about this if you come to us. We will never carry out a procedure that we think is unsafe or is being used to achieve an extreme appearance. We are always happy to offer help and advice to make sure you are happy with the results.

The types of anti wrinkle treatments that we use at our Bedford clinic include Botox, Azzalure and Boccature. The results following the procedure should last for between four and six months and can be repeated as necessary.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers usually contain hyaluronic acids and are used to plump up areas that have lost their natural collagen over the years. This usually applies in places such as the cheeks and lips and can also sometimes be used to improve the appearance of areas that have been scarred. The dermal filler treatments that we currently use include Juvederm, Perfectha, Teosyal and Restylane. Once the treatment is completed, results should be expected to last approximately nine months to a year.

Specific facial problems

There are a wide range of problems that facial aesthetic treatments can help with, whether by using an anti wrinkle facial treatment or a dermal filler. The list below may not be comprehensive but should provide you with an idea of the issues that we can help you to resolve.

  • Crow’s feet and other wrinkles that appear around the eyes
  • Frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Lines around the mouth
  • A sunken or hollow appearance beneath the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds (also sometimes called smile lines)
  • Thinning lips
  • Acne and some other types of scarring
  • Sagging cheeks and skin

As you can see, there is a lot that we can do to help you have a more youthful appearance. Both of these treatments require a small amount of the ingredient to be injected beneath the skin. We are aware that this might deter some people but the needles we use are very fine and only enter just beneath the skin. You will generally feel very little discomfort when having these treatments and we believe that the results are well worth it.

Side effects?

While side effects are possible, they are usually minor and temporary. Some of these may be visible, such as small areas of bruising around the site of the injection and possibly some temporary lumpiness too. Although these are usually relatively minor, patients might wish to arrange their appointment around times when their social calendar is relatively empty.

When you come to us for your initial consultation, we will discuss your general health with you to ensure that there are no conditions that you might have which may not make these treatments appropriate for you. We will also be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns that you may have.
