Facial Aesthetic Treatments in Southend
We are pleased to introduce to our practice a new range of non-surgical Facial Aesthetic treatments. Looking younger and healthier is now easier and more affordable than ever before, with some simple treatments that are quick, painless and 100% safe.
The treatments are carried out at our clinic by our resident experienced dentist - Dr. Mary Brien. Mary has been trained by Dr. Bob Khana, a leading world expert on facial aesthetic treatment and is fully indemnified to carry out treatments using refined Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers.
The treatment we can provide include:
Wrinkle Reduction- Forehead lines, Frown lines, ‘Crows Feet’, Smile lines, Neck lines and other signs of ageing.
The wrinkle reduction treatment involves small local injections of a purified botulinum protein which relax the muscles and smooth the skin giving a youthful and natural look. Botulinum Toxin® is internationally established as a highly effective and safe way to treat forehead lines, frown lines and eye wrinkles and has been used for over 30 years without any known long-term problems. Results appear usually within 1-2 weeks, and the effects last for 3-4 months. Wrinkle reduction is a pain-free process as the injections are tiny.
Non-Surgical Brow-Lift - perfect for the ladies!
Using Botulinum Toxin we can lift the brow area above the eyes to give that desireable shape to the eyebrow. This also opens up the eye for a more appealing effect.
Other uses of Botulinum Toxin
We can also use the properties of botulinum toxin to our advantage in tackling facial asymetry (e.g. one brow higher than the other), ‘squinty’ eyes - where the lower eyelids mask the eye excessively.
Treatment of folds and creases:
For larger, deeper lines, depressions or scars, we can use dermal fillers to reduce or erase the skin crease. Minimal, non-surgical injections will reduce nose to mouth lines and add youthful volume to lips, cheeks and chins. The material used is hyaluronic acid (Restylane) - a bio-compatible product which is present in the body naturally - it is 100% safe. Treatment time is typically less than 30 minutes and there are a minimum of side effects - usually some minor swelling for 24 hours, but the results can last up to 10 months.
Using Restylane, we can add add definition and or volume to the lips. Typically with ageing, the upper lip in particular can become thinner, usually accompanied by creases developing at the corners of the mouth. Using injectable dermal fillers we can plump out the lip to its former youthful appearance and reduce the creases at the corner of the mouth.
Before embarking on any treatments, we will arrange a consultation visit. This is a vital part of the treatment planning process. At this appointment we will listen to what you are looking for, and your reasons for wanting to enhance your visual appearance. We will take some portrait photographs of you which will help in planning the best treatment options. We will advise on what is achievable and how this compares with you expectations and we will recommend the most appropriate procedures to achieve the desired result.
The treatment agreed on will be carried out on a separate appointment. More than one treatment appointment may be required, depending on the treatment combinations to be used. Post-operative care and advice will be given to ensure optimal results with minimal side effects
You will be reviewed 2-3 weeks after treatment to assess the effectiveness of the procedure and ’Top-ups’ may be administered to deal with problem areas. Final portrait photos will be taken and any longterm care advice and follow-up treatment recommendations will be given.
If you would like to find out what can be done for you, book a consultation appointment so we can assess what treatment options might be most appropriate for your wants and needs. We can show you some before & after photos of patients that have had the different procedures so you can get an idea of what is achievable.
