Facial rejuvenation can include a large number of different treatments, and Holly Dental Practice is pleased to be able to offer botulinum toxin and dermal fillers to our already extensive treatment list.
Andy has been providing these treatments in Preston since May 2008 following completion of the Med-fx aesthetics courses (considered the gold standard) in London.
Many people are very sceptical about these non-surgical cosmetic treatments, but there really is no need to be when visiting an appropriately trained facial aesthetician who uses nothing but the best materials and techniques available. Further to this, no medical professional has more knowledge and understanding of the head and neck anatomy, or more experience with injectable materials than dentists, so there truly are no safer hands to be in than at Holly Dental Practice.
Botulinum toxin – Botox/Dysport/Azzalure
Lines & Wrinkles around the face develop over time and cause us to look older than perhaps we feel. The treatment we all know as Botox® (botulinum toxin) has been formally approved for cosmetic use to reduce these lines by limiting exaggerated facial expression. Botox is currently used in over 2 million people in the US every year as anti-wrinkle treatment, but has actually been used for treatment of other medical conditions for more than 20 years.
It is safe, effective and quick with a few injections under the skin necessary to relax the muscles and prevent the strong contractions that lead to the tired lines and wrinkles in our skin. Further to this, all our botulinum toxin treatments are provided under a topical anaesthetic known as EMLA cream, making what is already a relatively painless treatment completely pain free. Holly Dental Practice is one of very few clinics that offer this additional treatment as standard.
Wrinkle treatments are certainly not just for women either. Women may talk about their looks more often, but men are growing increasingly concerned about their appearance as well, and why shouldn’t they be?
A man who goes to the gym, and cares about his clothes and personal grooming, is a man that understands his appearance says as much about him professionally, as personally. During your consultation, our specialists will be able to advise you on which wrinkle treatment is required and where, to help keep you looking as young as you feel.
Dermal fillers – Restylane/Juvederm/Teosyal
Dermal Fillers are a non-invasive treatment often used to achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin. As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and the smooth complexion we took for granted as teenagers begins to fade. Unfortunately, the way our skin ages is largely determined by our genetics, but the process is accelerated by smoking, poor diet and sun exposure.
By injecting tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid into the skin or lips, Dermal Filler treatment gives you the opportunity to temporarily halt or even reverse the aging process by restoring volume and elasticity where you need it most. After one short treatment, the skin’s surface is ‘plumped up’, the appearance of lines and wrinkles are diminished and there is a marked improvement in suppleness. Safe and long lasting, Dermal Fillers provide a youthful lift to your appearance and an invaluable boost to your confidence.
Almost anyone who is unhappy about the current appearance of their skin can benefit from treatment with Dermal Fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used on nearly every part of the face to tackle a wide range of concerns. Your dentist will discuss the best option for you depending on the specific problem areas you wish to target.
