As we age, our skin undergoes many changes. For instance, cells generate more slowly and the inner layer of the skin starts to thin, becoming more susceptible to damage. Furthermore, the deeper layer of the skin that provides the foundation for our facial structure, loosens and unravels. Finally, ageing skin loses moisture and has the tendency to become dry.
If you would like to take years off your face and at the same time look natural and beautiful, you are in the right place. At Ace Dental, we offer a variety of facial aesthetics and beauty treatments, specifically tailored to suit your individual needs. More specifically, we offer Botox and dermal fillers in our dental practice in Camden. Both treatments are entirely safe and do not require surgery. The benefit of having these treatments done by dentists is that they have a deep knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy, so they can perform this delicate work in a precise and effective manner.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The benefits of Botox are achieved by a simple injection, avoiding all the costs and risks of cosmetic surgery. Patients can return to their normal activities straight after the treatment if they wish.
This treatment can be used by patients who want to reduce their fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is injected directly into the facial muscles and used to improve the look of expression lines and wrinkles for a short period of time.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers contain ingredients such as synthetic collagen, which acts as a replacement for the actual collagen our skin loses as we age. They are also injected under the skin to help to restore the firmness and smoothness that is associated with youth. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers come in different thicknesses to treat different areas.
Thinner fillers can be used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles in the face, whereas thicker fillers can be used to add volume to the cheeks. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance lips.Back to Blog
