Many people in the UK wish they could have more youthful looking skin. There is a huge range of products available that claim they can help us to get that youthful glow.
Here at Ace Dental in Camden, facial aesthetics is something we take very seriously. We don’t stop at helping you to keep your teeth looking and feeling great – we also help you to younger looking skin. This includes reducing the appearance of wrinkles with facial aesthetics in Camden.
Facial aesthetic options: Botox
Many people in the UK have turned to Botox injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. A recent study showed that 74% of Botox patients were happy with the results and would recommend injections to their friends and family.
Botox is a great option if you would like to reduce the effects of age on your skin but don’t want to resort to surgery. You may not realise it, but a dentist is the ideal practitioner to administer Botox. This is because we have deep knowledge of facial anatomy and years of clinical experience.
The injectable Botox relaxes the tiny facial muscles that create expression lines, or wrinkles, on your face. This gives the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. Botox injections don’t last forever and will need to be topped up every three to six months.
Facial aesthetic options: dermal fillers
The other type of facial aesthetics in Camden that we offer is dermal fillers. Whereas Botox relaxes the muscles to prevent any more wrinkles and lines forming, dermal fillers fill and plump the skin, smoothing over the cracks to make the skin look more youthful.
Dermal fillers are made from a sterile form of hyaluronic acid, taken from synthetic or natural sources. Our bodies produce less natural hyaluronic acid as we age, which gives rise to lines and wrinkles forming.
The treatment uses collagen injections to plump up the skin. The whole appointment takes 30-45 minutes and is mostly pain-free. You may need to take a little time to rest afterwards, but most patients feel able to go about their daily business straight away. The results can be seen more or less immediately and last anywhere from six to 12 months.Back to Blog
