When you look in the mirror at your lovely new teeth, do you feel that your face needs a bit of help now too? It isn’t our fault that as we age our bodies produce less of the products that help our skin bounce back, but there are things we can do to make our faces work for us and not against us. Here at Ace Dental, we use facial aesthetics in Camden to give people back their self-confidence and their lovely smooth faces.
The science of ageing is increasingly important and at Ace Dental, we have adapted our deep knowledge of the head, face and neck and our skills with tools such as needles and applied them to facial aesthetics, so that you can have an amazing smile set in an amazing face. There are two problems that everyone suffers with as they age: wrinkles formed by the habitual contraction of certain muscles, and the sags, hollows and wrinkles created by the loss of moisture and plumpness from our faces.
Contraction wrinkles come from always having certain muscles contracted. They are mainly in the upper face, such as frown lines between the brows, worry lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. They can also be smoker’s lines around the mouth. Contracting them is a habit that can start young so it’s not unusual to see people even in their 20s with frown and worry lines developing.
At Ace Dental, we use Botox, a purified protein from the Botulinum A toxin to gently paralyse the nerves that are telling the muscles to contract. In a quick session of only a few minutes, we inject just the right amount into the muscle. Over the course of the next week or so, the muscle is gradually paralysed and smooths out. You will, however, still be able to make natural facial expressions.
The effects last for about four months and people often come for a top-up session after three months.
We also offer dermal fillers to fill out hollows and wrinkles. These are great around the mouth and last for six months to a year.Back to Blog
