Facial Rejuvenation & Peel Treatments

As our skin ages and gets more exposed to sunlight, pollution, and stress we may start to see unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Facial Rejuvenation treatments target these signs of ageing with a non surgical approach. The overall effects can be amazing so get ready for younger-looking skin.

Our Aesthetic Practitioners are fully qualified dentists who have undertaken additional training to perform non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Our treatments are carried out using only the best quality materials and equipment. Whether you already have or are considering wrinkle reduction treatment in our clinic, we will welcome you for a consultation giving personalized advice and care.

 

Muscle relaxing drugs

Products like Botox® can be used to treat dynamic wrinkles of the face (forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet). Botox can also be used as a preventative measure, reducing the strain of the muscles in areas prone to wrinkles.

Is it safe?

The Botox procedure is one of the safest available for the reduction or softening of wrinkles. Botox is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes (Crow’s Feet). Botox can also be used to treat lines around the mouth and those on the neck.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers (Juvéderm®) consists of hyaluronic acid which is used to lift and firm up your skin by replacing the natural collagen lost as you age. The most commonly affected areas are nose-to-mouth lines and smokers' lines around the lips. Dermal fillers will also improve the contours of your lips and cheek bones, adding volume and shape.

The gel is administered into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, safe and gentle to your skin.

Chemical Facial Peels

What is a chemical peel? A simple 30-45 minute treatment using substances that which exfoliate the skin at a medium- deep level and stimulate the dermal skin structure resulting in rapid cell renewal to provide a more youthful, smoother skin texture and tone and rejuvenated appearance. 2 types of peel are now available.

Glycolic acid peel

A potent AHA derived from sugar cane and fruit acid- application can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and light pigmentation. Skin is more radiant with a fresher more youthful appearance.

TCA peels

A non-toxic acid is applied to provide a deeper peel over a course of 4 treatments. It is used in the treatment of deeper lines and wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, sun spots and melasma. The effects of such peel will be longer than that of a lighter peel. It needs to be provided as a course of peel treatments over 2-4 months.
