Wrinkle reduction treatment
It happens to everyone; even with great skin care and a healthy lifestyle there comes a time when your appearance just doesn’t look quite what it used to.
But there is a way to subtly smooth away some of the signs of ageing and leave you looking rejuvenated for months at a time.
Following a consultation at one80dental with Samantha Thompson, who is an experienced anti-wrinkle practitioner, you may be recommended injections of Botulinum toxin.
Small, virtually painless injections give your wrinkles some time off so they begin to soften; you won’t look 20 years younger but you can expect a more natural and relaxed look.
This non surgical treatment comes with the usual high quality and regulated cross infection standards that apply at one80dental, bringing a level of clinical safety that can be lacking with facial treatments in other environments such as high street beauty clinics.
Botulinum toxin is a prescription medicine that works by blocking signals from the nerves to the facial muscles and it is particularly effective on wrinkles between the eyebrows (one of the most obvious signs of ageing), forehead lines and wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet).
It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full results and the effects last for 3 to 4 months, although with repeated treatments they can last longer. Sometimes, to achieve the best results, wrinkle reduction treatment is used in combination with dermal fillers.
New guidelines set out by the General Medical Council in 2016 recommend that doctors can delegate anti-wrinkle injections to less qualified staff, but at one80dental you will always be treated personally by Samantha, who has three decades’ experience administering facial injections as a dentist and has carried out non surgical facial aesthetics since 2010.
