One certainty in life is that as we grow older, lines and wrinkles will start to appear on our face. These signs of ageing are also usually accompanied by other factors, such as thinning lips or sagging cheeks. Avoiding smoking, having a healthy diet, with the addition of using moisturisers may help to delay these signs, but they will eventually happen anyway.
At The Dental Centre Bedford, we are pleased to now offer our patients the opportunity to have younger looking skin again, using safe and effective facial aesthetic treatments in the form of Botox® and Dermal Fillers.
Botox® is a muscle relaxant that works by blocking the nerve signals that indirectly cause our skin to start to wrinkle. Small quantities of this serum are injected just underneath the skin, using a very fine needle used commonly to treat areas such as frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes “crow’s feet”. You should expect to see your wrinkles start to ease within a few days, with the full effects seen within a fortnight.
The effects of Botox® should last for a number of months and can be safely re-applied once the effects start to wear off.
At The Dental Centre Bedford, we use:
- Smoother looking skin
- Restores a more youthful appearance
- Fast working
- Lasts 4-6 months with a free 2 week top-up if needed
Dermal fillers are applied where volume is required, either due to more volume being desired or to replace the natural collagen that we lose as we grow older. Some of the effects of lost collagen can include thinning lips, sagging cheeks and deepening of the facial folds.
By using dermal fillers to help restore facial features, we can quickly help you to regain a more youthful look.
We currently use:
- Excellent for plumping up the lips
- Helps fill out sagging cheeks
- Restores a more youthful smile
- Lasts 9 – 12 months
