Why might you want cosmetic surgery?
As we age our body and skin goes through a variety of changes, some of these developments enhance our natural beauty whilst others, such as wrinkles and creases, can leave you feeling downhearted and deeply missing your youthful appearance. Luckily facial aesthetics in Colchester provide a variety of different ways to enhance your natural beauty and diminish the natural signs of ageing.
Whilst focusing on the cosmetic appearance of patients, some of the treatments also assist with the reduction of problems such as teeth grinding.
How can facial aesthetics in Colchester reduce teeth grinding?
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is often a side effect of jaw clenching and a sign of stress; it can cause a series of problems including headaches, earaches and facial discomfort, along with other medical and dental side effects. Approximately 30% of people grind their teeth during sleep, which means most are unaware of the problem. Unfortunately the effects of the teeth grinding can leave the patient in a considerable amount of discomfort and in some cases pain, as along with possible tension pain within the neck and shoulders, the teeth can become worn down and chipped leading to other dental problems.
By relaxing the muscles associated with bruxism, the highly-strung tension is reduced considerably, as the muscles are unable to tighten to their full extent, reducing the grinding of the teeth. This relaxation of the muscles also helps reduce and eliminate changes to the appearance of the jaw line which is a common, cosmetic, side effect of bruxism.
How do the anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections are often considered to be one of the leading cosmetic treatments in terms of popularity within the UK. The injections work by relaxing the muscles, which in turn limits the movement of the skin and therefore smooths the appearance of the skin considerably. By having this relaxed facial state the facial creases are greatly reduced and in some cases eliminated. This means that no matter the facial expression, whether a frown or a smile, you can create a more youthful appearance and regain any confidence lost during the ageing process.
The effects of the anti-wrinkle treatment lasts approximately three to five months when first begun and possibly longer when repeat treatments occur. However, please note this is entirely dependent on each individual case, as each patient’s body reacts in its own unique way.
Does the anti-wrinkle injection cause pain during or after the treatment?
Unlike some cosmetic and medical procedures a local anaesthetic is not required for this particular treatment. Swelling, redness and mild discomfort may occur in some cases shortly after the treatment, but this usually goes away within a few hours. Any other mild discomfort is often treated by a mild topical cream, however if you have any concerns over the treatment please discuss this in more detail with your dental team.
Please note, as with all treatments and procedures there are potential risks. Therefore we encourage all our patients to seek further information and advice about facial aesthetics in Colchester with our trained staff.
