Wrinkles are part of the ageing process as, over time, the structural makeup of your skin alters. As we get older, we start to see two kinds of wrinkles appear. Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by repeated facial movements and may commonly form around the mouth and eyes, while static wrinkles are those caused by the loss of collagen in your body.
The good news is, you don’t have to live with lines, wrinkles and scars. Longwell Green Dental & Implant Clinic offers a wide range of facial aesthetic treatments, including dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, facial peels, and skin needling, to enhance a youthful appearance and boost your self-confidence.
A complete skin consultation and analysis of your face is provided by our practice specialists. Relax in calm, safe environment, where you can take the time to decide on the right skin solution for you.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a fuss-free and straightforward option if you are looking to soften lines and wrinkles, or to lift your brows or jowls. They can also help to slim the lower face and can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to create a more natural looking, non-surgical face lift. You may consider anti-wrinkle injections if you suffer from teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism), as the relaxing properties can help alleviate facial tension. They can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Anti-wrinkle injections are a good option for dynamic wrinkles, especially those in the upper part of the face, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and vertical lip lines.
It’s a straightforward treatment where a small amounts of purified protein, commonly known as Botox, is gently injected into the area you wish to target using a very fine needle. The protein helps to reduce the effects of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles in your face and temporarily reducing the number of contractions in these problem areas. The result is younger looking, smoother skin, visible two or three days after your treatment.
After applying a numbing cream, a few tiny injections administer small amounts of the purified protein under the skin. The number of injections you receive will depend on the areas that you wish to target, and will take around 15 minutes to complete.
Anti-wrinkle injections are non-surgical, so there’s no recovery period after treatment. The result is a natural-looking improvement to your skin. Effects can last up to four months but you can maintain your youthful looking skin with regular top ups – in fact regular use of anti-wrinkle injections mean that you require fewer top ups.
Dermal fillers plump out fine lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance, and at Longwell Green Dental & Implant Clinic we understand the importance of maintaining healthy, young skin using the most natural option available. Our specialists use a dermal filler called hyaluronic acid (HA), which is something that already naturally occurs in the body – in fact about 50 percent of the body’s HA is found in the skin. As we age the levels of HA decrease and our skin loses hydration, causing classic signs of ageing. HA dermal fillers are a popular option to support the skin’s structures and moisture, effectively delaying these classic signs of ageing.
HA can restore lost volume in the cheeks, nose, between the eyebrows and around the mouth, as well as address deep lines and wrinkles. At Longwell Green Dental & Implant Clinic we will discuss with you an agreed and personalised treatment plan to achieve the look you envision and your treatment will be tailored to you – you may wish to incorporate dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections, for example. The procedure is straightforward and consists of a few small injections to administer the filler. We apply an anaesthetic cream and the whole procedure for HA dermal fillings will take between half an hour to an hour, while the effects can last from a few months to a couple of years.
