Wrinkles and facial lines result from ageing, muscle activity (and over activity) and your genetic predisposition. In addition, excessive sun exposure, alcohol consumption, emotional and hormonal influences and smiling can also increase the likelihood of wrinkles.
At David Vaughan Dental Care we can offer professional consultations and treatments to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
David is highly trained and knowledgeable about head and neck anatomy and physiology and is skilled in the use of cosmetic treatments.
Botulinum toxin type A
This is normally used in three areas; the forehead, frown lines and corners of the eyes (crows feet). The most recent application is to prevent underarm sweating.
Anyone can benefit from Botulinum Toxin, both men and women. In most cases, the treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Effects will begin to appear very quickly within 48 to 72 hours, although the full effect of the treatment may not be visible for up to ten days. Treatment will last for up to four months. With repeated treatments, every four months for the first year, the effect lasts longer.
Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to bring a more youthful appearance by restoring volume or fullness to face and lips. They work by restoring lost volume in the lower face by plumping out lines, wrinkles and folds.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found naturally throughout our bodies in our skin, bones, joints and eyes. It acts as a lubricant and moisturiser due to its ability to attract and store water.
The effects are seen immediately after treatment. Restylane® lasts for around 6 to 12 months depending upon the site of application.
