Facial Aesthetics at Feltham Dental Care
As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of ageing. It’s an inevitable part of life and can lead to us feel less confident. Wrinkles develop as skin cells divide more slowly, and the middle layer of the skin, called the dermis, begins to thin. The dermis is composed of a network of elastin and collagen fibres, which offer support and elasticity and over time this causes the depressions in the skin.
A Toxin was first used in the 1970s to treat children with squints. It’s cosmetic potential was then recognised, and it has been used to treat wrinkles since 1990, but much longer for medical reasons. A convenient alternative to surgery, it is possible to use injections with the toxin to reduce and relax frown lines, forehead lines and laughter lines around the eyes.
The benefits of toxin injections are visible within 7 to 10 days of the treatment. They will last for three to four months when you first start having these injections, giving the face a smoother, more rested appearance. This is a preventative treatment, and with repeat injections over time, the less you will need. Our advanced aesthetic practitioners, can also use toxins for the lower face and neck.
Dermal Filler Injections
When injected with a very fine needle into the crease line, the gel creates volume under the wrinkles, lifting up and smoothing out lines. As we get older our skin loses moisture, and we see lines and wrinkles develop. Hyaluronic Acid is the substance naturally present in our cells which keeps the skin smooth and supple, along with collagen and elastin. An injection of Hyaluronic Acid can restore skin volume and reduce wrinkles. The gel breaks down naturally over a period of 5 to 12 months.
