Human skin is subject to enormous stresses. As it ages, it is less able to handle the strain. However, growing older does not have to be riddled with physical suffering – it can usually mean growing better. Wrinkles and fine lines are the result of muscle movement. At the same time, age, environmental conditions as well as certain lifestyle choices (i.e. smoking and drinking) cause the skin to become thinner and lose its elasticity.
The development of lines and wrinkles can negatively affect the overall appearance of the face. Over time, these conditions can only get worse. Luckily, patients can now take advantage of Botox and dermal fillers, which effectively improve signs of ageing to restore a more youthful and attractive facial appearance. Both treatments are safe, do not require surgery and can be performed in less than an hour at a dental clinic in W1, such as Harley Street Dental Clinic.
Patients who wish to rejuvenate their skin with either of these treatments should consider visiting a dental clinic in W1. Dentists have more facial anatomy training than most other medical professionals.Dentists are also trained to focus on the symmetry of the face.
Botox is a prescription medication used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by injecting it into the facial muscles. Botox is typically used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines between the brows and moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment with Botox is entirely surgery-free and consists of simple injections. Patients tend to recover in no time and can return to their daily activities on the same day. Treatment with Botox at a dental clinic in W1 is not permanent – patients who wish to maintain the results need to schedule a follow-up treatment a few months later.
Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not halt the movement of facial muscles, but rather fill in the fine lines and wrinkles, adding plumpness and elasticity to the skin. To restore the facial contours and smooth out lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are injected into the skin around the mouth and nose. This often only requires just one visit to the dentist. Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume to the lips.
