A dentist may not be your first thought when facial cosmetic treatment is what you are after, but it really should be! Let us, at The Dental Studio, show you our range of high-quality treatments for facial aesthetics in Colchester.
The overall plan of reshaping a patient’s appearance towards a new aesthetic goal is often broken up into regions, although our staff are fully aware of the holistic nature of aesthetics and matching the overall patterns of the face. This is particularly important in regenerative procedures where the goal is to challenge and reverse the signs of ageing, rather than altering the patient’s aesthetic.
This is used to describe the rejuvenating treatments for the appearance of the neck region, usually near the front. More often than not, this involves reducing an unnecessarily saggy or bloated appearance hence lifting. The sagginess itself is caused by the fatigue of elastin-based proteins throughout the face and neck. We use a range of treatment solutions from Botox-induced muscle relaxants and hyaluronic acid-based plumping to hormone-containing skin creams.
Restylane Vital is a dermal filling preparation with lidocaine that focuses on hydrating and improving skin quality. We apply this as a set of micro-injections over a broad area to replace the hyaluronic acid lost with age and generally improve dermal quality.
Age-related facial lines
Have you ever wondered why hard, direct light at a sharp angle makes people look older? It’s all about the facial lines and how they are associated with age. Non-diffusing light at sharp angles accentuates all the lines of the face into the dark recesses and highlights the majority of the face, increasing contrast; hence, diffused overexposed light is used to make people look younger!
The same guiding principle is used when treating facial lines. By pumping underneath them or smoothing the immediate tissue around the gradient, the contrast of the lines can be minimised.
We can achieve this simply with minimally invasive techniques, allowing you to enjoy many of the advantages of surgical cosmetics without the disruption, high cost and irreversible nature of invasive cosmetic care.
As dentists, it is the synergy of quality anatomical education that we possess with additional knowledge in beauty techniques and the attention to detail that comes with our profession, which also allows us to get results of high standards.
The treatment techniques we use are extremely safe, and we can perform them even if you have other conditions. However, you should still inform us of your medical history; if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, for example, there may be some treatments that are unsuited for you. Many patients are unaware of what they can do immediately after these treatments; if you want to drive or return to your desk, you can with facial aesthetics in Colchester.
