Anti-Ageing Treatments at Riverside Dental
Has ageing, smoking and perhaps too much time enjoying yourself in the sun left your face with lines and wrinkles? Are you looking for a fantastic non-invasive solution to help solve these problems? Here at Riverside Dental we are now proud to offer skin rejuvenation or Botox treatments that can help your skin look younger and healthier.
The injection treatments we offer are simple, safe, quick to administer and have little recovery time, with you seeing the results within days. We use a range of products that are injected to rejuvenate the skin and combat wrinkles, encouraging the growth of collagen that strengthens the skin and smooth away lines and folds. The products can be used to treat both men and women.
What is Botox?
Botox is the product made by bacteria called botulinum. When used in a very diluted dose, it can be safely used to relax facial muscles. Apart from muscle relaxation, facial lines and wrinkles will reduce. Doctors have used injectable Botox and fillers for over 40 years, originally being used for the treatment of eye spasms and squints. Botox and other injectables are used to reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet (also known as laughter lines) and fine lines below the eyes as well as a mini-brow lift.
Are you specialists?
As dentists, we are highly trained in the head & neck region and facial rejuvenation now complements our cosmetic dental treatments that we have been successfully providing at our modern, state-of-the art premises in Norwich. Our clinicians have extensive training in Botox and all non-surgical anti-wrinkle injections.
Our clinician is Dr Layla Danino. She studied the use of botulinum toxin type A and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of facial lines at the prestigious Cosmetica Training Institute in Liverpool. Having a dental background, Layla uses needles on a daily basis and therefore is very comfortable and skilled at giving injections where needed. Layla aims to offer treatments dependant on your unique needs following an in-depth consultation and analysis.
What does the treatment involve?
Treatment involves injection into the small muscles of the face, which causes the lines to form. It usually takes effect within a few days. It is a safe and effective method of treating the lines of facial expression, causes by the facial muscles.
Generally, the main discomfort felt is the sensation of the needle, which is transient. The needles we use are very fine and therefore minimize the discomfort. As dentist’s we have more experience than most clinicians when it comes to successful, pain free injections.
There are very few after effects associated with injectable treatments. Soreness and mild swelling sometimes occur, but disappear within a short period. Your clinician will explain how to care for your skin after having the anti-ageing treatment that you choose.
