At face value
At Leamington Spa Dental Practice, we recognise that we are living in an increasingly image conscious and appearance focussed world. No longer are our services focussed primarily on ensuring and maintaining the oral health of our patients. Whilst this is a persistent aspect of our daily services, we are increasingly treating patients on a purely aesthetic, cosmetic basis that goes beyond oral health and extends to procedures such as dermal fillers in Leamington Spa to boost the self-esteem of those who seek them.
Fountain of youth
Dermal fillers in Leamington Spa are a cosmetic procedure which uses cosmetic fillers to reshape or fill out a patient’s face. People opt for this for a number of reasons, and are of all ages. One of the most common reasons for seeking out dermal fillers in Leamington Spa is to halt visible signs of ageing such as frown lines or crow’s feet. Another reason for seeking dermal fillers is to address acne scars or pockmarks that have been left from chickenpox or another pre-existing skin condition. Dermal fillers act by being injected into the face of the patient with the aim of pumping up the affected area until the point that the depression or wrinkle is gone. Fillers of this nature work by increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid within a muscle which temporarily freezes the nerve signals within the area they are injected into. This results in the muscle seeming smoother and fuller. Dermal fillers are not a permanent solution, and typically last around three to five months, depending on the extent of treatment.
Painless and quick
The process of receiving dermal fillers from a specialist here at Leamington Spa Dental Practice is a remarkably quick and painless procedure which only takes as little as 20 minutes. Prior to undertaking any facial rejuvenation treatment from us, patients must first partake in a consultation period. This is done to assess whether or not you are eligible for treatment by establishing whether or not you have any pre-existing, underlying conditions such as myasthenia gravis which would prevent treatment from being carried out. However, providing patients are eligible, the actual installation process of dermal fillers is a remarkably simple and painless undertaking. Initially, an anaesthetic cream may be applied, before the dermal fillers are injected with a tiny needle, directly into the muscle which they aim to fill. This area is then gently massaged by one of our filler specialists. After the fillers have been inserted, there may be some mild swelling or redness – which should cease within two days from the initial injection. For deep wrinkles or lines within your face, multiple insertions of dermal fillers are required, so you may have to return to our practice. For mild, smaller wrinkles or lines on your face however, they may be smoothed out almost immediately and maintained so for as long as five months. Those who receive dermal fillers can often find them to have a massively positive and life-changing impact on their self-esteem and confidence as their outward appearance is often largely boosted aesthetically and their perceived age is greatly reduced.
