Advancements in cosmetic dentistry have revolutionised many dental treatments and have made it possible to achieve a better smile in many different ways. But now that your teeth are looking much better aesthetically, isn’t it time to consider your face and the areas around your smile? Beautiful teeth are the main focus of your face, which can also be transformed with the help of Facial Aesthetics.
For a few years now, we have offered facial aesthetics at Harley Street Dental Clinic with success, enabling adults to complement their smile and regain a more youthful appearance. Non-surgical facial aesthetics such as Botox injections and dermal fillers available at our dental clinic in W1, can help you reduce your fine lines and wrinkles considerably.
Botox (short for Botolinum Toxin), is used widely as a muscle relaxing injection for the treatment of wrinkles and deep lines. When injected in the face, the toxin temporarily blocks the muscles responsible for wrinkles by interfering with the nerves that connect to them.
Botox treatment can take up to a week to show its effects and then can last anywhere between 3-6 months. So if you want to maintain the same look, just book in a top-up treatment with us.
As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and becomes less flexible. As such, lips can lose their plumpness, fine lines and wrinkles may appear around the mouth and nose area and cheeks can start to look recessed and hollow. Dermal fillers, which are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body, are a popular aesthetic treatment in our dental clinic in W1. They are used to restore volume to the lips and cheeks and reduce facial lines and wrinkles.
What’s great about dermal filler treatment is that the results are instantaneous. So as soon as your short treatment is over you can walk away looking younger and fresher-faced. The effects of dermal fillers last for months, depending which areas of the face are treated.
Both Botox injections and dermal fillers are straightforward for our skilled general dentists to administer, given their years of study into how the nerves, muscles and other tissues of the face work.
