It is a normal process for our skin’s structure to deteriorate as we mature. With constant exposure to wind, sunlight, cold and pollution, your skin is under constant attack which results in fine lines and wrinkles forming. At Wedmore Dental Practice our fully qualified dental clinicians are able to reduce theses lines and fill deep wrinkles, to give a subtle improvement on your appearance, which results in helping to preserve and restore youthful looking skin.
This is a very successful method to reduce (and in some cases even eliminate) frown lines, wrinkled foreheads and laughter lines. In order to achieve these results, tiny amounts of a bacterial toxin are injected at very specific sites to reduce the activity of the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles in the overlying skin. This has an effect only in the site of injection. The material used is extremely safe and has been in use for over 20 years by surgeons for the non-surgical treatment of squints and similar muscle imbalances.
In some instances, it is not appropriate to use Botulinum toxin; for example in a very mobile area such as the lip, or where there is a natural fold in the facial tissues. In these cases, dermal fillers are the treatment of choice.
We use a product called Juvederm Ultra® to smooth and plump deep grooves. It is a non-animal hyaluronic acid based implant that replenishes the body’s own hyaluronic acid which declines with age. Insoluble in water, Juvederm Ultra® acts as a molecular sponge – hydrating the dermis of the skin by imprisoning the water molecules and giving back to the skin its volume and initial form. Fine lines, wrinkles and folds are immediately filled and corrected.
We advise a consultation appointment prior to providing these treatments. This allows us to thoroughly discuss and assess which method of treatment would suit your individual requirements.
