Getting old is so much fun, said nobody, ever. People may bang on about how glad they are to be so much wiser and to not have to go out clubbing anymore, but they also say that youth is wasted on the young. All that energy and glowing skin should be put to better use than trashing it by staying up all night, drinking too much and even smoking.
As we age, our bodies produce less of all the things that keep us young, including things like collagen and hyaluronic acid, which help keep our skin plumped and glowing. Along with that, we develop habitual ways of contracting our facial muscles that stop being able to uncontract and so give us lines and wrinkles. None of that is fun for most people when they look in the mirror and remember how they used to look.
Fortunately, facial aesthetics in Camden with us at Ace Dental can take the sting out of getting older by smoothing away lines and wrinkles. Our dentists are ace at using dermal fillers and Botox to give you back your beauty but without making you look like you have had ‘work’ done, as they say.
Botox is the treatment for smoothing out wrinkles caused by habitual muscle contraction. Think creasing your eyebrows together when you worry, raising them in surprise, pursing your lips or crinkling your eyes to squint at your phone. Injections of Botox take about 5 minutes per area and the effects develop gradually over the next few weeks.
Dermal fillers plump out hollows caused by loss of fat and muscles drooping. It’s more of a lower face treatment and is great for nasolabial folds and marionette lines and that flat top lip. The effects are immediate.
Both of these treatments for facial aesthetics in Camden are temporary so if you don’t like what they do, all you have to do is wait a few months and the treatment will wear off. However, if you do like what you see, and we think you will, you can come back for top-ups. Botox needs top-ups after 3-4 months and dermal fillers after 6 months to a year, depending on where you have them.Back to Blog
