At Forest House Dental Practice we provide wrinkle reduction treatment using Botulinum Toxin, more commonly known as Botox. Botox is a very popular facial aesthetic treatment that reduces the signs of aging and gives you a more youthful look. It is a non-surgical treatment that smoothes the skin and lessens the visibility of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines to leave you with a younger, more toned look.
Facial skin naturally loses tone and elasticity as we get older. This is due to a reduction in collagen and elastin production as well as the accumulation of years of different facial expressions and muscle use. Smoking and over-exposure to the UV rays in sunlight can also accelerated the process further. Anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox are a great way to temporarily combat these effects and leave you looking younger. They reduce muscle movement in the most susceptible areas and therefore allow the skin to recover and lessen the creasing.
The results of anti-wrinkle injections usually last for approximately three to four months and then gradually fade. After that you can book a top up appointment for a repeat treatment to keep your new younger look.
The face loses volume as we age due to a natural decrease in collagen. This results in the visible signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles and loose skin.
We can help to smooth out lines and add volume to the lips to help create a more youthful look using Dermal fillers. The results are immediate and can markedly reduce folds and wrinkles in the skin.
Dermal filler treatment is simple and safe and only takes approximately 20 minutes. Any discomfort is reduced by the application of a local anesthetic. There may be a slight redness around the area of treatment straight afterwards but this will disappear after a short amount of time.
The effects of dermal fillers aren’t permanent but are relatively long lasting. Depending on the area of treatment results can last between 6 and 12 months. You can then repeat the treatment to maintain your new look.
