Your makeover doesn’t have to stop with your teeth. We are also highly skilled in gentle procedures that can rejuvenate your skin by smoothing out wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes to give you a fresher, more youthful look.
As qualified dentists we have studied the structure of the face and the position of nerves, blood vessels and muscles. This allows us to achieve the best cosmetic results and avoid possible complications. We have access to advanced techniques and sophisticated methods of pain control, which enable us to keep discomfort to a minimum. We also understand the importance of infection control, the clinically clean, sterile environment of a dental surgery is the ideal setting for these procedures.
Strategic use of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle products can take years off your appearance, boost your confidence and enhance your dental makeover.
For example, giving volume to your cheek area lifts the face in a very natural way, recreating youthful fullness. We can also restore the youthful look of your chin, filling creases and smoothing out dimpling.
Anti-wrinkle injections commonly known as Botox or Dysport create a more youthful appearance by relaxing the tight muscles that cause wrinkles.
They contain a special protein that blocks overactive nerve impulses and restricting muscle contractions so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible. They are particularly effective for treating ‘crows’ feet’ around the eyes, horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and frown lines between the eyes.
The hyaluronic acid used for the latest injectable dermal fillers occurs naturally in the body but production decreases with age. Dermal fillers can be used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips and increase the volume of soft tissue.
Unlike surgical face lifts they don’t stretch the skin so they create a more natural appearance. The most common areas treated are the smile lines around the nose and mouth, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines between the eyes and acne scars.

Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before treatment and any anti-inflammatory or blood-thinning medication for two weeks before treatment to reduce the risk of bruising. On the day wear comfortable clothing and remove any make-up.
Temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, itching and burning may last several days. Mild analgesics such as paracetamol can ease any discomfort and you can apply ice intermittently to reduce any swelling. Results are not instant, you should begin to notice a difference after three or four days but it could take up to 10 days. We are here to help so please call us if anything is causing concern.
Don’t rub or massage the affected area for 24 hours following treatment. Avoid air travel, alcohol, extremes of temperature, exercise and lying face down. Don’t apply make-up for at least six hours.
