Treatments For Smoother And Younger Looking Skin in Eltham

Our dental clinic not only offers premium oral health care, but facial aesthetic treatments too!

Traditionally, dental practices offered patients the chance to have healthy teeth and gums and then more recently, a more attractive smile with cosmetic dentistry too. However many now also offer facial aesthetic treatments as well, including our own team here in Eltham.

With the rise in popularity of these treatments, an increasing number of non-dental outlets started offering these treatments, but often in an unregulated way, with some of the worst offenders having little or no skills or experience at all. This is why it makes really good sense for patients to seek these services in the clean and regulated environments of a dental practice.

Most of you will undoubtedly have seen the photos of procedures that have gone wrong, with swellings and the ‘trout pout’ effect when the lips are plumped up far more than looks natural. By bringing these treatments into a professional environment such as our own, you can be sure that you will be getting both effective treatment and also in a safe, controlled way.

Our fully trained and experienced facial aesthetic clinicians are available to discuss your requirements and talk you through the available options to make sure that you achieve the results that you want. Let us take a look then, at the treatments available to our Eltham patients.

Anti-wrinkle treatments

One of the best known treatments to reduce facial wrinkles involves the use of the botulinum toxin which is injected into the areas where wrinkles are to be reduced. This toxin is perfectly safe if applied in an environment such as our own. It works to relax the facial muscles and thereby reduce the visibility of any wrinkles that might be present. This is a popular treatment that can really help you to look younger than your years. The effects last for some time and this will be advised during your consultation. The effect will eventually wear off though but the treatment can be repeated safely as often as you wish.

Whether you are looking to have this treatment just once, perhaps for a special occasion such as a wedding, or whether you are looking to continually improve the smoothness of your skin, we are happy to offer help and friendly advice to help you achieve the results that you want.

Dermal fillers

In addition to our faces becoming more prone to showing wrinkles as we get older, you may also notice other issues such as the lips starting to thin and some parts of the face starting to ‘sag’ a little. This is due to the natural loss of collagen which gives our skin its youthful elasticity and makes us look younger. It is also a significant component that makes the lips look plump and firm. As we lose collagen, we also start to show some of the ageing features that many of us would rather avoid.

By using dermal fillers at AR Smiles in Eltham, which are injected just beneath the skin, we are able to restore these affected features and help you to have a more youthful appearance once more. As with the anti-wrinkle treatment, this effect will eventually wear off but the treatment can be repeated as often as you wish.

Risks and side effects

Facial aesthetic treatments have sometimes had bad press. Many of you will have seen images in the media of celebrities who have almost frozen faces and whose lips are extremely exaggerated. We understand that this may deter some people. The good news is that, in all likelihood, these treatments were performed either by an unregulated practitioner or by one who may have agreed to go far beyond the ‘norm’ for significant amounts of money.

You do not need to worry about your results being like these. Our team are very experienced and will discuss all aspects of this treatment with you. We also reserve the right to refuse to treat anyone who requests something that we feel is either not safe or is too extreme. The reality is that almost everyone who comes to us simply wants to improve the appearance of their skin and wouldn’t dream of asking for anything like this.

The materials that our Eltham facial aesthetics team use are very safe and have been thoroughly tested. You can be sure that you are in very safe hands with us.  Some people have asked if the treatment hurts but the reality is that the needles used to inject the ingredients under the skin are very fine and you should feel little more than a pricking sensation. We may also use numbing cream to help with this where appropriate.

One thing that patients might wish to consider is that the injections can cause some minor bruises and swellings. These will soon go and should cause no significant discomfort. Because they can be visible though, you might wish to schedule your treatment at an appropriate time, avoiding social events etc for a few days.

If you would like any information about any of the facial aesthetic treatments that we offer or would like to find if we can help you with a specific issue in this area, why not call us to arrange an initial consultation with one of our friendly clinicians? You can do this by calling AR Smiles today on 020 8856 7759.
