Turn back time with facial rejuvenation treatments
We live in an image conscious world and, even though you take care of yourself by looking after your skin, eating healthily and exercising regularly, you may wish that you could do more to refresh your appearance and slow down the passage of time.
Here at Roseacre Cottage Dental in Kent, facial rejuvenation treatments are in growing demand with our patients.
Anti-wrinkle injections for facial rejuvenation
One of the leading and most popular facial rejuvenation treatments currently available is anti-wrinkle injections using Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botox® is the most widely known brand name but other brands are also popular and very effective.
Botox® works by temporarily preventing targeted facial muscles from contracting. It’s the repeated movement of these muscles that causes expressive lines and wrinkles to occur on your face and neck. With anti-wrinkle facial rejuvenation injections, we can smooth away these fine lines and wrinkles so that your face looks years younger.
Anti-wrinkle injections are particularly effective when used around the forehead, eyes, nose and mouth. The treatment is simple, painless and lasts for months.
Dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation
Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is a type of sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. Because our stores of hyaluronic acid begin to deplete from our mid- to late-twenties onwards, our skin gradually loses its volume and definition, as well as elasticity. This is why younger people tend to have lovely rounded cheeks and more defined features, whereas our faces tend to take on a more sunken appearance as we age.
By using dermal fillers, we can restore the lost volume beneath your skin, giving you back that youthful definition. Dermal fillers are particularly effective for redefining the contours of the cheeks, nose and chin. We can also enhance your lips using dermal fillers to create a more sensual pout and restore the definition of your Cupid’s bow and vermillion line.
Both anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are temporary, effective and have an excellent safety record. They offer a non-surgical way of reviving and refreshing your appearance and require little to no downtime.
