At SW9 Dental, we know that a lovely smile needs to go in a lovely frame, and how, if you get your smile made wonderful, it can make you want to improve your face too. This is why we offer facial rejuvenation treatments alongside our cosmetic dental treatments.
In Stockwell, facial aesthetics are increasingly popular because it provides a quick and easy way to soften facial wrinkles and lines and fill out the hollows that develop as the skin of the faces ages.
Botox is the brand name of the Botulinum type A toxin. We inject the Botox into areas with wrinkles, such as the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, the crow’s feet around the eyes and surprise lines across the forehead. This blocks the nerve impulses that run along to the muscles, telling them to contract. Over the next few days, as the Botox slowly takes effect and effectively paralyses the tiny muscles holding the wrinkles in place, they smooth out and disappear. Treatments only take between five and ten minutes per area being treated. The full results of the treatment become visible between four days and one week after the treatment, as Botox works to relax the muscles gradually.
As we grow older and wiser, the deep skin of our face produces less collagen and elastin, which supports it and gives it volume. That is when we start to notice hollows and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are a simple, quick, injectable facial rejuvenation treatment to smooth and plump out the contours of the face to recreate younger-looking skin.
We use a brand of fillers that provides fantastic, lasting results. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a sugar that is naturally found in the skin, tendons and muscles, which the body uses to retain moisture in the cells. As such, it is perfect for working to reduce a variety of natural ageing symptoms, including sad mouth lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, ageing lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance lip volume and contours.
