Facial rejuvenation means giving the face a younger appearance. Many will have heard of a “face lift” but there are many procedures that can offer immense improvements without the surgeon’s knife.
Since 2007, the most common cosmetic procedure has been the injection of Clostridium botulinum toxin, more commonly referred to as “Botox®”. Many facial wrinkles can be softened or eliminated with this sort of treatment predictably, inexpensively and almost painlessly. The procedure takes just a few minutes, the effect lasts for many months and as time goes on, the need for repeat treatment diminishes.
Deeper wrinkles can often be treated with dermal fillers. Much rarer these days are the sort of permanent fillers that suffered a bad press in the past, but modern fillers are based on naturally occurring compounds that disappear over time. These hyaluronic acid-based fillers are extremely popular and can improve both the sort of deep folds that can appear around the mouth and the tiny “smokers’ lines” that can occur around the lips.
The in-depth knowledge of the anatomy of the face, makes a suitably trained and experienced dentist ideally positioned to offer these sorts of treatments and the practice offers an informal consultation to anyone interested. Within the private and discreet situation of the practice, we have found that these treatments are just as popular with gentlemen as ladies.
