Just like many things in life, skin ageing is an unavoidable process. As we grow older, our skin becomes thinner, gets drier, takes longer to heal when injured, gets wrinkles and fine lines, and is less hydrated and elastic. These changes are due to many factors including age, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, harmful UV rays, environmental pollution and poor maintenance of the skin. Luckily, these effects are reversible with non-surgical facial treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.
At Crofts Dental Practice in Essex, we offer facial aesthetics treatments to help you look your best. We only use high-quality injectable treatments which are designed to make you feel younger, fresher and more relaxed. After all, what could better accompany a beautiful smile than healthy, youthful skin?
Our lead dentist, Dr Jazz Battu, has extensive training and experience in facial aesthetics including Botox and dermal fillers. We take patient safety seriously into consideration, therefore Dr Battu will assess your suitability for facial aesthetics treatment during your initial, free consultation appointment. This is because, in some cases – for instance, if you are pregnant or suffer from certain medical conditions – using Botox and dermal fillers is not recommended.
Botox injections are very popular and can be used to treat a wide range of skin problems including but not limited to brow lines, smokers’ lines and crows’ feet. Our dentist will ensure that you receive accurate treatment that targets the right facial muscles. Botox is a popular treatment because it is cost-effective compared to plastic surgery and its effects last for three to four months.
While Botox smooths out the appearance of wrinkles by preventing muscle movements, dermal fillers, as their name suggests, actually fill the lines and wrinkles. Most dermal fillers contain synthetic hyaluronic acid and they replace lost collagen, elastin, fat and other natural moisturising substances in the skin that prevent it from becoming less plump. Injections with dermal fillers only take a few minutes, but the results can last for up to a year depending on the quality and density of the fillers.
As a thank-you to all of our patients, we offer a £10 reduction on facial aesthetic treatments for patients who refer a friend for our treatments.
