When you think about visiting a dentist Chelsea, you are probably considering what the general dentistry treatments are like, and you may be interested in other dental treatments that can be provided, such as cosmetic dentistry or restorative treatments. At Chelsea and Fulham Dentist, we also have another service to get your face looking fabulous when you smile with facial aesthetic treatments. You may be reading that statement a couple of times over and wondering what a dentist Chelsea is doing offering facial aesthetic treatments, but it isn’t as cuckoo as you might think! Dentists are incredibly knowledgeable in facial anatomy, so when it comes to injecting the tiny facial muscles, who better than a dentist to do so? What’s more, we pride ourselves on the sterile conditions in which all of our treatments are carried out, so you can be reassured that you are in the right place for a procedure that will make you look more youthful.

What facial aesthetic treatments do you offer?

We offer two different treatments for making your face look fresher and fabulous: dermal fillers and injections using botulinum toxin type A. These can be administered within a short treatment session, and both are non-invasive procedures, so you could even pop in to see us during your lunch break.

Botulinum toxin type A injections

With the safest techniques being used, our dentist Chelsea may recommend Botox for your skin. The substance is known by this brand name, and it is based on the scientific substance, botulinum toxin type A. It is FDA approved and is a protein that is injected into the facial muscles. Once it has been injected, it blocks the signals that travel from the nerve endings to the muscles; this then allows the muscles to relax and appear smoother. It is deemed to be a very safe process that is used to improve signs of ageing.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid gels. You may have heard of hyaluronic acid as it is produced naturally by the human body and is what gives the skin its elasticity. However, our body produces less hyaluronic acid as we age, and the skin can then develop fine lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid gels that are used for dermal fillers come from non-animal sources and, like botox, are FDA approved. The fillers are injected into the facial muscles to plump them up, and the result is smoother-looking skin. They can also be used as lip fillers to give your lips more volume.

How long will the results last?

For our Botox treatments, the results should last between 3 to 6 months; dermal fillers can last between 6 and 12 months, although it is normally 6 months for the lips. This means that you don’t need to have treatments too often, allowing you to continue with your life after the treatment for plenty of time before you have to think about booking in to see us again.
