For many people the younger they look the better they feel about themselves…
Age is an unstoppable process and the older we become our skin also grows older, which leads to the skin changing in its appearance and characteristics.
Not only age but hormones, sun exposure and smoking can all cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop; skin feels more fragile and elastic.
‘As we age the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin which is so important for water retention decreases, oil-producing (Sebaceous) glands become less active and your skin becomes drier. The skin also looses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth and because the number of blood vessels in the skin decreases, the skin looses its youthful colour and glow’. (Juvederm)
There are many treatments used in the field of facial rejuvenation including wrinkle relaxing treatments and dermal filler treatments. At Quadrant Dental Practice we like to always have an initial consultation to discuss our patients’ needs and to look at the areas of the skin that the patient wishes to improve. Your clinician will then advise which form of treatment will be more suitable for your requirements.
Once the patient is happy with the treatment advised an appointment will be set up for the treatment to be carried out, which normally takes around half an hour. The effects take place very quickly within 48 to 72 hours, although the full extent of the treatment may not be visible for up to 10 days.
Treatment will be reviewed after 2 weeks when any further top ups and further treatments can be discussed.
