Facial Aesthetics

Andrew Taylor and Kate Rowe trained in Harley Street, London to administer anti-wrinkle treatments. 


Andrew Taylor
 
Katy-Ann Rowe

Dentists are highly trained throughout their 5 years at dental school in facial anatomy and are perfectly placed to skilfully administer botox and fillers in an accurate and precise way to achieve best results once they have carried out this additional training.

Facial Aesthetics can also complement dental work to achieve your desired youthful natural appearance.

We can provide both Botox and Fillers at our dental Practice. The brands we provide are Juvederm dermal fillers and Allergan botox

Botox

What is botox?

Botox is a protein, which, when injected into the muscle, causes it to become weakened or inactivated

How does it work?

Skin can become creased in areas of greatest use of facial muscles eg smile lines, crows feet. These areas become permanent as we get older due to the slow down of collagen and elastin production. By reducing the movement of muscles the skin stops being creased causing the lines to soften or fade away. For the first couple of years frequent treatment is needed to re-educate the muscles. Thereafter, treatments would be less frequent until a yearly maintenance treatment is required.

How safe is botox?

In high concentrations it is a poison. However, botox used in minute doses, as it is in cosmetic therapy, has a very high margin of safety.

What happens during treatment?

The procedure takes about 15 minutes. The dentist will ask you to use certain muscles of the face to observe how they work. An extremely fine, short needle is used to inject the botox into the appropriate area. The area may have some slight redness and swelling, which normally resolves in an hour or two. After treatment you should not massage the injected area or lie down for 4 hours. Treatment usually starts to take effect after 4-14 days but this may vary slightly with some individuals. Effects will last between 2 and 6 months when you will start to notice an ability to move the muscles more freely.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are rare. Most people find that the injection only causes mild discomfort. Immediately after the injection there maybe mild swelling, which usually subsides in 48 hours. Occasionally a temporary drooping of the eyelid can occur. This may last a few weeks, but will always resolve. In extremely rare cases some patients have developed an allergy to the treatment, while others have shown resistance.

If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, treatment is not recommended

Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Fillers are a non surgical way to reduce signs of ageing by plumping the skin up, making it firmer and smoothing out lines and wrinkles anywhere on the face including eyes,nose and forehead. They are injected under the skin to give a more youthful or enhanced look. We can use fillers to ‘plump’ lips and add definition. Lips are an important indicator of youth as they shrink as you age.

What happens during the treatment?

Dermal Fillers take around 30-45 minutes to administer. Our dentists will discuss your thoughts and assess your face to decide on the best treatment plan for you. You can return to work or day to day activities immediately.

Are there any side effects?

If there are then they are only temporary/mild to moderate. Most common are slight bruising and swelling from the injection sites

When can you see results?

Dermal fillers work instantly

How long does it last?

On average dermal fillers last 4-8 months but can differ for each individual
