Facial aesthetics are a popular form of dentistry on offer at our dental clinic within Colchester. Many dental clinics within the United Kingdom may offer their patients general routine dentistry, orthodontic work, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dental treatments (all of which we provide) however we strive to embrace further variety, without compromising on quality.
Are facial aesthetics in Colchester right for me?
If you are an individual of any age who is suffering from laughter lines, or general aging of the skin? Anti-wrinkle injections could be perfect for you, and they are just one example of the facial aesthetics in Colchester treatments we provide. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat many areas of the face such as the forehead, the neck, the eyebrows, the chin, and the area around the eyes (commonly referred to as ‘crows feet’).
Did you know?
Anti-wrinkle injections are multipurpose. This means that they are not only used to treat wrinkles in the face, but can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiration) of the skin.
How do wrinkles occur?
Many of our patients may be suffering from wrinkles and may therefore be aware that they would like to receive treatment, however they may be unsure of the exact cause of their wrinkles. Within everyday life we use our facial muscles to portray emotions, and over time these lines start to deepen within the face, therefore becoming more pronounced as the years go on.
Can I reduce my chances of developing wrinkles?
Unfortunately, wrinkles are a natural consequence of aging and expressing emotion. However there are certain lifestyle factors that can make them worse. It is thought to be believed that genetic disposition can worsen the occurrence of wrinkles, in addition to the consumption of alcohol, smoking, and sun exposure.
What to expect from your treatment process
Many of our nervous patients may wish to know what to expect from the treatment process, which we are always happy to accommodate. Much like any dental treatment your anti-wrinkle process will start with an initial consultation. During this initial consultation our dental healthcare professionals will assess your problem areas and the lines you wish to eliminate, we can then inform you of further treatment details (in addition to treatment fees).
Receiving your anti-wrinkle injections
After we have decided that you are eligible for anti-wrinkle injections (if you are not pregnant or currently breastfeeding) we can begin your treatment! The treatment process is extremely simple and can be completed within just one session. A small amount of formula is injected into the wrinkles using a thin needle (several injections may be required).
Does the treatment take along time?
No! Many of our busier patients may be concerned that facial aesthetics could take a long time, however our anti-wrinkle injections only take ten to twenty minutes!
How long do the anti-wrinkle injections last?
This is a question we get asked frequently at our dental clinic within Colchester, many patients may consider their chosen dental treatment as both an emotional (for nervous patients) and financial investment which is why it is important they are long lasting. Our anti-wrinkle injections could be expected to last for a maximum of five months!
