For many of us, there comes a time when face creams and shop bought skincare systems just aren’t cutting it any more in the fight to maintain youthful, wrinkle-free skin. At the same time, going under the knife for plastic surgery may feel like a cut too far.
Here, we look at five popular facial aesthetic treatment options that make safe wrinkle reduction a reality:
1. Skincare systems
It’s possible to take your skincare regime up a notch at Fresh Dental Care by using a world-leading skincare range such as Restylane, Obagi Nu-Derm® or Zo. These systems can safely correct the signs of ageing by penetrating beneath the surface of your skin and accelerating cellular turnover. The result is a revived, healthy glow. These skincare systems are a step up from what you would typically use at home, and are widely tolerated by most people. In addition to improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, these systems can help with problems such as acne and hyperpigmentation. The treatment is bespoke to you, the individual, and helps address the overall health of your skin.
Botox is a brand name for Botulinum Toxin A, a licensed neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles responsible for developing facial expression lines, thereby temporarily weakening and paralyzing them.
Rest assured that we have extensive experience and a stellar safety record of using Botox for safe wrinkle reduction at Fresh Dental Care. Botox is tolerated by most people and can noticeably improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is used to tackle common problems such as brow lines, smokers’ lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines and bunny lines, all of which can give your face an older appearance.
3. Dermal fillers
At Fresh Dental Care, we use dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. These hyaluronic acid fillers are non-permanent and have an excellent safety record. Using biosynthetically produced hyaluronic acid, these fillers replace the natural hyaluronic acid that your body loses as you age.
By injecting dermal fillers into targeted points of your face and hands, it is possible to restore lost volume and give your skin a younger, smoother appearance. Problem areas typically tackled with dermal fillers at Fresh Dental Care for safe wrinkle reduction include smokers’ lines, lip enhancement, corners of the mouth, brow lifts and cheek augmentation.
4. Laser treatments
For many people we see at Fresh Dental Care, laser treatments are seen as the next step up to topical creams and lotions. There are a number of laser treatments currently available in the UK, all of which offer a non-invasive, surgery-free way to manage safe wrinkle reduction.
Laser treatments, such as Laser360TM and iPixel, generally require little or no downtime, and are widely tolerated by most people, although different treatments may be more suitable for certain skin colours, skin tones or problems such as hyperpigmentation.
The great thing about laser treatments is that we can adjust them to your individual needs, and this safe wrinkle reduction procedure is usually pain free.
5. Skin peels
Chemical peels continue to be a popular option for safe wrinkle reduction at Fresh Dental Care. Different depth peels are available to treat a number of issues such as acne, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. They use special chemicals or enzymes to remove the build up of dead skin cells and reveal healthy new cells, while stimulating collagen production. The result is much healthier, more youthful looking skin.
Chemical peels at Fresh Dental Care offer lasting benefits, and can be used in conjunction with other therapies for optimal results.
To find a safe wrinkle reduction treatment that suits you, the most important thing is to ask questions and to book with an experienced facial aesthetics practitioner who can explain the pros and cons of each option. No skincare treatment is 100% risk-free but, in the right hands, safe wrinkle reduction is possible.
As we’ve seen at Fresh Dental Care, people leave looking and feeling ten years younger when they have the right treatment.
