Here at the Dental Studio, we’ve brought all of the skills you would expect from the highest quality dental care and applied them to facial aesthetics in Colchester. By placing them under one roof, we can give you the highest quality and most convenient cosmetic treatments.
Let’s talk about some of our most common procedures; injectables. Injectables is a broad term, covering non-invasive procedures from passive lip fillers based on applying hyaluronic acid to permanent pumping agents to anti-wrinkle applications and peels.
The recent growth of injectables may have been fuelled by the appearance of plumped lips in the media and a desire to keep up with online models, but they do not have to be used this way with facial aesthetics in Colchester. We have found great success with the subtle use of injectables to rejuvenate and minimise the signs of aging, leaving our patients with a healthier more confident appearance which is neither treading the line between natural and radical cosmetic changes.
The underlying logic behind injectables is to add mass, almost the opposite of how a plastic surgeon would approach a cosmetic challenge. Rather than seeing places where tissue should be removed, we see places where tissue wants to be added, making them particularly useful at resolving a tired looking appearance. Even in areas where it may seem apparent that you would want to lose mass, an overall effect of reducing a feature can be achieved by adding mass around it. The best example of this is in treating under eye bags by increasing the mass above the loose skin, thus their appearance is minimized.
The art and science of injectables
In the UK, injectables are considered minimally invasive treatments and can be carried out by anybody with no previous medical training or experience. This led to a huge variety in the quality of work that practitioners provide and some unpleasant horror stories. Our staff with their background in dentistry, dental degrees and long histories of proven work have excellent medical foundations from which to safely perform all injectable procedures. Along with the credibility that comes from being a licensed medical provider with an official body and all the relative legislation.
Just because injectables can be safely applied does not mean that they can be effectively applied and reaching aesthetic goals has been extremely important to facial aesthetics in Colchester. We regularly send our staff on additional training courses so that they are fully up to date with the newest injectable techniques. This includes sculpting where the injectable is placed under the tissue and then whilst it is mobile, pushing it or smoothing it into its final place, giving a far greater degree of control than can be achieved with the injection technique alone.
We also have a significant advantage over smaller beauticians and kiosk based providers as we are linked to the greater medical industry and have prescription powers. This gives us access to the highest quality products from trusted suppliers rather than sourcing our injectables online and exposing our patients to potentially counterfeit goods.
