Ageing is a natural process, and at some point we have all wished the lines did not come with the wisdom. With ageing, the skin undergoes many changes, some of which can be controlled, while others can’t. Changes that can be controlled often occur because of external factors such as the sun, smoking and other environmental factors such as pollution, diet, gravity and bad skin care. And while we cannot stop the natural process of ageing because it is programmed in our body, we can certainly adjust our personal habits and reduce the changes caused to our skin by external factors.
At Dental Surgery Burnham, we understand that quite a few people would like to remove the signs of ageing from their face without resorting to complex surgical procedures. For this reason, we offer facial rejuvenation techniques that can soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Our experienced dentists can arrange thorough personalised cosmetic and facial consultations in Burnham for patients who wish to have Botox or dermal fillers.
Botox is a purified toxin that’s injected into the skin to effectively remove or lessen the appearance of deep wrinkles and lines. This treatment is particularly effective on the brow, frown lines and the area around the eyes. Most of these areas are affected by facial expressions and are more likely to develop lines and wrinkles over time.
Treatment with Botox is very quick and last 15 minutes approximately. However, it can take up to a few days to see significant change. Recurrent treatments are encouraged every few months for maintaining good results.
Unlike Botox, dermal fillers actually fill in lines and wrinkles to make the skin look younger and plumper. Fillers usually consist of synthetic hyaluronic acid, to replace the actual hyaluronic acid lost with age. Dermal fillers are also used for enhancing the lips as well as shaping facial and neck contours.
The treatment consists of injections which are administered by our experienced dentists and the effects are visible immediately. Depending on the area treated and the density of the gel used, the filler effect can last between 6 and 12 months.
