As we age, our bodies start producing smaller quantities of vital compounds that it needs to repair and renew cells. It happens throughout the body, but where it really shows up visually is in the appearance of our skin, and that’s where having facial aesthetics in Camden can help.
Once we get to over 30 years old, we can expect our bodies to be producing less collagen and hyaluronic acid, both of which play a vital role in keeping skin looking firm and glowing. When our skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles, folds and hollows start to appear. At Ace Dental in Camden, facial aesthetics, in two different forms of treatment, can help.
Botox is the brand name for the botulinum type A toxin. It has a paralysing effect, and when carefully injected into the right places in the face’s muscles can be used to reduce the formation of wrinkles. When you come to our highly experienced practitioners at Ace Dental, we can inject Botox to smooth out wrinkles such as crow’s feet, worry lines, lines around the top lip, and frown lines. The treatment is quick and the effect appears gradually over the following seven days. The treatment lasts for three or four months, and you can come back for top ups as the effects start to fade. Botox is a tried and tested treatment that has been around for quite some years now.
Dermal fillers work on a different principle from Botox. Instead of relaxing wrinkles, they plump out contours on the face. When you come to us for dermal fillers, we will prepare you first with a local anaesthetic before carefully and precisely injecting gels containing non-animal derived hyaluronic acid. You can use dermal fillers to redefine the contours of your lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and also to plump out the neck and hands. Dermal fillers are expected to last between six months and one year, although fillers in the lips generally last for less time than elsewhere because the mouth is constantly in use.
