Ageing is a natural process and wrinkles and fine lines are part and parcel of getting older. However, nowadays there are treatments available to delay the ageing process and enable people to wind back the clock and preserve their youthful looks.
Our faces are usually the first parts of our body to display visible signs of ageing and this can be a source of distress for some people who are keen to keep their youthful looks. The face is exposed to the elements, including wind and sun and demonstrates the results of a lifetime of smiling and frowning. As we get older, the skin on the face loses elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, making us look older.
At Galston Dental Practice we are delighted to offer clients a range of treatments to rejuvenate their skin and boost their confidence. Our treatments include Botox, Restylane and Dermal fillers.
Botolinum Toxin Type A (Botox) is becoming increasingly popular as people try to fend off the visible signs of ageing. Botox at Galston Dental Practice is a non-invasive treatment which helps to combat fine lines and wrinkles by restricting the action of the facial muscles. Wrinkles appear as a result of muscle contractions brought about by a chemical called acetylcholine. Botox blocks the action of the chemical and subsequently prevents the production of wrinkles.
The procedure involves having a number of small injections in specific areas in the face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. The injections are not painful and results will be visible within two weeks. Botox treatment usually last for between three and six months. You will need to top up the treatment after this time. Most people who choose to have Botox experience a reduction of wrinkles of around 80 percent.
Dermal fillers are popular, effective treatments for facial lines, wrinkles and frown lines. They can also be used to make the lips look plumper and enhance the appearance of the cheeks. Dermal fillers help to restore youthful looks by replacing the body’s natural collagen. The amount of collagen decrease as we get older, causing the skin to lose elasticity.
The procedure is quick, safe and simple and provides almost instantaneous results and should last around six months, after which you can visit us here at Galston Dental Practice for a booster. Healing is very quick and you can return to your normal life straight away.
