Anti-Aging Cosmetic Treatment.
The aging process results the decrease of production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that gives support and volume to our skin.
Wrinkles, lines, grooves, depressions and a sunken appearance are formed by this decrease.
With facial aesthetic treatment your dentist can help smooth out the wrinkles and fill in the folds.
Anti wrinkle treatment injections relax specific facial muscles that cause expression lines. Once relaxed the muscles cannot be contracted thus lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from being formed, creating a more youthful appearance.
Anti wrinkle injections are especially useful to treat “crow’s feet” around the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and frown lines between the eyes.
Anti wrinkle treatment usually takes about 20 minutes after initial consultation, with no down time involved. Initial results occur in 2-3 days with the maximum effect occurring after 7 days.
Anti wrinkle treatment can last up to 4 months before the lines slowly start to return. Effect of anti wrinkle treatment tends to last longer with regular repeat treatments.
Dermal fillers provide a natural and rejuvenated appearance by “filling in” and “plumping up” facial wrinkles and folds.
Areas commonly treated with dermal fillers are: lip sculpting and static lines around the mouth and on the forehead. In total facial rejuvinations, fillers can be used to create cheek bones, brow bones and can be used to reduce dark circles under the eyes.
Treatment usually takes 30-40 minutes and can last anywhere from 6-12 months.
Dermal fillers provide immediate results and such are also ideal for use in lip augmentation to correct asymmetries or provide fuller, more defined lip, which can compliment the outstanding cosmetic dentistry your dentist can provide.
Repeat treatment tends to prolong the effect of dermal fillers.
