If you are over 40, you might think you want to look 18 again, but in fact, that would be a bit weird. What most people want when they come to us at Ace Dental for facial aesthetics is to look somewhere around how old they are but timeless. Looking timeless means having fewer lines and wrinkles, fewer folds and hollows, and to have skin that glows.
When we age, what happens is that the muscles in our faces start to drop, they also habitually contract to create particular lines. As for our skin, well, from about the age of 30, we start producing less of the compounds that give our skin that plump, glowing look and instead it starts to look thin and papery.
At Ace Dental, our facial aesthetics in Camden are chosen to help you temporarily soften out wrinkles and smooth out hollows and folds. We use 2 treatments to do this: Botox and dermal fillers. Each contains different ingredients, works differently and is better on different parts of the face. You can use them separately, or combine the 2 treatments to great effect.
Facial aesethetics in Camden with Botox
Botox, the purified protein of the Botulinum toxin, is injected into muscles that are constantly contracted to create wrinkles. These tend to be on the upper third of the face: frown lines between the brows, worry lines above them, crow’s feet around the eyes, and smoker’s lines along the top lip. Botox temporarily prevents the muscles from receiving the signals from the nerves to contract. Over the next week after treatment, the muscles relax and smooth out. Treatments last about 4 months, and can be topped up after 3 months.
Facial aesethetics in Camden with dermal fillers
Dermal fillers plump out hollows and folds, which tend to appear around the lower part of the face. These are injected with hyaluronic acid, which is a compound the body uses to lock moisture into cells. Over the next 6 months to a year, the injected hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body. It works really well on nasolabial and marionette lines, smoker’s lines, flattened top lips and even the backs of the hands.Back to Blog
