Facial Aesthetics

As we age fine lines and wrinkles appear, especially across the forehead and around the eyes. These lines are caused when overactive muscle movement wears away the collagen in the skin, which in turn causes the skin to crease or wrinkle. A more youthful appearance can be achieved with a non-surgical facial rejuvenation using Azzalure.

Facial rejuvenation works by relaxing the muscles, thus preventing wrinkles and smoothing out lines. During the treatment your dentist will administer a very small amount of Botox using a tiny needle inserted directly into the muscles that cause the expression lines.

The treatment is done in the practice by one of our dentists, Patrick Rea and Janice Brown. You do not need to be a member of the practice to receive treatment, however we will require you to fill in a medical questionnaire so that we are up to date with your health history. The treatment usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes, it is painless and there is no recovery time needed afterwards. You should begin to see a marked improvement in frown lines in two to three days. However, the lines continue to improve for up to a month, and your skin will appear smoother. The results last for up to four months when treatment will need to be repeated because Botox is broken down naturally by the body.

We want to make sure you are happy with the results therefore we offer all our patients a follow up appointment with your dentist a week after the treatment. A free initial consultation to discuss the treatment is available please contact the practice 028 9047 1070.
