Facial rejuvenation

Botox / Dysport

Wrinkles happen over time and can occur due to gravity, age, smoking and sun exposure. Dr Gangotra, Principal Dental Surgeon of Smilessence is pleased to offer the most up to date techniques to help soften wrinkles and facial lines. Botox / Dysport is a safe and virtually pain free non-surgical wrinkle reduction technique. It has the advantage that treatment times are on average 10-20 minutes, and prices are dramatically lower than that of the equivalent surgery.

Botox / Dysport reversibly relaxes muscle tissue which can be successfully used to combat ageing associated with gravity and sun exposure. An extra fine needle is used which injects the Botox / Dysport into the facial muscles which helps them to relax. It is usually applied to the areas around the face where dermal collagen has been weakened, such as the upper lip, forehead creases, neck lines and crow’s feet (around the eye).

Here at Smilessence the results from the pain free technique can be noticeable from 7-14 days after the treatment and can last for many months. Dr Karen Gangotra has extensive experience in facial rejuvenation, having successfully completed many treatments she has developed a particular eye and technique which is painless and gives a natural looking result.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a highly purified form of the typically naturally occurring substance hyaluronic acid. These are used to help add volume as well as plumpness to the skin in areas where there is a breakdown of tissue caused by age. They are very effective at helping to smooth the appearance of the deep wrinkles whilst enhancing the fullness of lips.

Dermal Fillers are commonly used for the lips to create the size and shape you desire and restore the lost fullness that depletes with time. The lip border and lines gradually over time becomes thinner and smaller. Injecting small amounts of dermal filler can restore a smooth defined border and a natural youthful look. At Smilessence the treatment is tailored to suit each individual, from a mild natural touch up to a more glamorous pout.

Botox in conjunction with facial fillers, such as Hydra-fill or Juverderm, can achieve a more youthful complexion. The combination of both Botox and dermal fillers really does help to give your skin a smoother and more youthful looking appearance.
