In Camden, facial aesthetics is becoming an increasingly popular way to soften wrinkles and folds without permanent cosmetic surgery. At Ace Dental, we have 2 treatments that can work together or separately to smooth and fill out spots where age is getting the better of your face. Botox and dermal fillers complement each other wonderfully.
Dentists are becoming first-choice experts for facial aesthetics because of their years studying facial anatomy. When we qualify we have a medical grade understanding of how the muscles, nerves, tendons, organs, and skin of the head, face, mouth, and neck work together. We also continue to train to advance our knowledge and skills.
When you choose Ace Dental for facial aesthetics in Camden, you are choosing professionals to create a naturally younger-looking face.
Here’s how facial aesthetics in Camden work:
From about the age of 30, we start to lose production of hyaluronic acid. The body uses this vital natural acid to form bonds between skin cells. It also helps the cells retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid’s creation of bonds and retention of moisture is what makes our skin look plump and glowing. When it reduces our skin starts to look faded and to hang on our bones, creating hollows. As we naturally produce hyaluronic acid, using it in dermal fillers means that we are simply replacing something that is now missing. Dermal fillers are used to plump out areas such as the nasolabial folds that run between our noses and mouths, or the marionette lines that run down from our mouths. It is also very effective in plumping out the top lip, crow’s feet, and hollows in the cheeks.
Botox is the brand name for injections of the botulinum A type toxin. This is used to temporarily block the nerve impulses that tell the muscles to contract, thus paralysing them. It takes about a week for the effects to be completely evident. Botox is particularly popular for frown lines and forehead lines.
These treatments are quick, and can be administered in a few minutes. They each last a few months, so you can try them out and then if you like the effect, continue with top-up treatments.Back to Blog
