Dentist have the perfect skills for delivering this type of cosmetic treatment safely and comfortably so that it has become a regular part of what we do day-to-day in the practice.Dr Melanie Tadaion is trained in facial aesthetics and carries out treatment in our practice.
Facial rejuvenation treatments are used to help soften expression lines and define facial contours either by the careful use of wrinkle relaxation injections or injectable fillers.
wrinkle relaxation injections
Crease lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines are part of the natural maturing process caused by a combination of aging, sun damage and the normal movement of the muscles in facial expression. Wrinkle relaxing injections can be used to relax certain facial muscles. This means that the overlying skin stays smoother and creases gradually diminish. The result is a more serene and youthful look. Treatment is not permanent and lasts on average for 4 months.
soft tissue enhancements
Dermal fillers can be used to plump out the facial lines and increase the volume and hydration of the skin. They are used particularly to soften the lines around the mouth and chin area and for enhancing the shape and volume of the lips. These types of fillers are naturally biodegradable and are therefore non-permanent. The effect lasts typically 6-9 months.
Before deciding to have any of these cosmetic treatments it is important that we meet and discuss your requirements.

NON-SURGICAL FACIAL AESTHETICS (BOTOX)
Injections of BTX (Botox) are now the most commonly performed non-surgical cosmetic procedure for facial rejuvenation around the world. Dynamic activity of the facial expression muscles often result in the development of deep vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and/or crow’s feet in the overlying skin. These lines can be softened or totally eliminated by carefull and precise intra-muscular injection of BTX (Botox).
The initial effects become visible within 2-3 days. the maximum effect is reached in about 1-2 weeks.
The overall effect is very natural as your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask like. The effect of treatment generally lasts for 4-6 months. Re-treatment is then required.
Areas that can be treated include:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical frown lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Vertical lip lines (often called smoker’s lines although you may not be a smoker)
- Drooping mouth lines (marionette lines)
We believe that most patients would prefer these procedures to be delivered by a healthcare professional in a safe and clinical environment.
A dentists’ detailed knowledge of facial anatomy and muscle activity combined with experience in injection technique leave them ideally suited to provide this procedure safely, effectively and with minimal discomfort.
