Facial Aesthetics

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process and can also be accelerated by exposure to the sun, excessive stress, diet, and weight loss. These wrinkles can be ‘static’ – caused by the gradual loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, or ‘dynamic’ – created by repeated facial muscle movements, such as laughing and frowning. However, our non-surgical facial treatments help to eliminate these lines and plump up areas of lost elasticity.

Wrinkle treatments smooth areas of the face including lips, cheeks and chin, giving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Here, at Streatham Dental Care, we provide consultations to discuss which facial aesthetic treatment would achieve the best results for you. Every skin type is different and we want to deliver the best results for you and your skin.

What happens during ‘Anti-Wrinkle Treatment’?

After a numbing cream has been applied, an extremely fine needle is used to precisely deliver small amounts of a purified protein. These injections relax specific muscles to stop the skin from creasing and are an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles, particularly in the upper part of the face. They can be used to treat the following:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Vertical lip lines (smokers lines)
  • Crow’s feet (smile lines)
  • Excessive sweating

Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and effects will show in 7-10 days. The number of injections will depend on the area being treated and, as these are precisely targeted, they produce natural looking results. There is no need to take any time out to recover after the procedure.

In addition to the aesthetic benefits of anti-wrinkles, it has many medical uses, it has historically been used for therapeutic treatment of all manner of muscle spasms like jaw muscles as well as to treat migraine and excessive sweating.
