Wrinkle Reduction

Wrinkle Reduction Treatment

Wrinkle reduction can be provided with prescription only Botox®

Botox® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the UK to smooth out frown lines and other wrinkles and has been used for over 30 years without long-term side effects.

How does wrinkle reduction work?

Botox® is a protein that blocks nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract, relaxing them and reducing wrinkles. Taking only minutes, it’s given by injection with a very fine needle directly into the muscle you wish to affect – minimising the pain and maximising precision.

How long does it last?

The results usually last between 3 – 4 months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers involves an injection of hyaluronic acid which restores the structure of your facial skin – reducing the appearance of defects such as wrinkles.

How do dermal fillers work?

An ultra-fine needle is used for maximum precision and minimal pain.

Dermal fillers are used to:
• Minimise fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduce the appearance of scars
• Fill in overly thin areas of your face
• Enhance the appearance and fullness of lips

Fillers can be applied to your lips to give a fuller and more defined appearance. We use Juvederm® dermal fillers performed with surgical precision by our highly trained dentists. This is a very popular and safe cosmetic procedure.

How long does it last?

The results can be seen immediately and are not permanent, lasting up to a year.

Dermal fillers vs. Botox. What is the difference?

Botox will relax targeted muscles where the product is placed – often the forehead lines and crow’s feet, whereas dermal fillers will replace volume that has been lost due to the natural ageing process.

Botox treats dynamic lines, i.e. when you are moving your muscles. Dermal fillers treat static lines, i.e. when your face is relaxed and has volume loss.

They can be used very successfully in combination. For example, when you have a deep forehead furrow.
Initially, you would have Botox to relax the movement in the chosen area and then, two weeks later (as Botox takes this long to reach its full effectiveness), you could have fillers to reinstate the volume and plump out any static line/s that remain.
