Give your face a boost

The dentist may not be your first port of call when looking to lift the look of your face. The beauty parlour or a doctor may spring to mind first.

However, your dentist is ideally suited to offer non-surgical cosmetic procedures for your face; providing a high quality, cost-effective treatment in Stockwell. Facial aesthetics are being offered by more and more dental surgeries.

Smoother lines

Here at SW9 Dental, we offer two facial aesthetics treatments: anti-ageing injectable treatment and dermal fillers.

Anti-ageing injectable treatment is more commonly known as Botox. It works by injecting botulinum toxin type A into the tiny facial muscles that causes wrinkles. This causes the muscles to relax, thereby smoothing the appearance of the face.

The treatment is very quick – it takes 5-10 minutes to complete. The results show in between four to seven days and last for around three months.

Regain the youthful look

Dermal fillers use a synthetic form of a naturally occurring substance to plump up facial lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin. As we age, we produce less of it. The dermal filler is a non-animal hyaluronic gel that we inject precisely into the areas that will benefit the most from this plumping effect.

This is also a very quick and easy treatment. We give you a local anaesthetic before applying the filler, which then takes a few minutes. Unlike the Botox-type treatments, you will see the effects straight away. The effect lasts 6 – 12 months and increases over time with repeated applications.

The success of both treatments depends upon the skill of the practitioner in knowing exactly where to apply the injection so it has the most natural looking effect. Therefore, it is essential to go to a trained medical professional if you want your Stockwell facial aesthetics treatment to look natural.
