Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler treatment is a cosmetic procedure that plumps up facial lines and wrinkles to make the skin look more youthful. Fillers usually consist of sterile hyaluronic acid gels made from non-animal sources. As we age, the skin's natural hyaluronic acid is lost, giving rise to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds. Fillers are also used for lip enhancement and for shaping facial, hand and neck contours.
 

Here is how dermal filler treatment works:

  1. Local anaesthetic is first administered to the area to prevent any discomfort.
     

  2. The dermal filler is then injected, which only takes a few minutes.
     

  3. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately.
     

  4. Depending on the area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the filler effect can last between 6 and 12 months (usually six months for lips)
     

  5. Follow-up treatments will help to maintain the plumped up look over time.

Life Benefits

  • Non-surgical and painless procedure.

 

Anti-Ageing Injectable Treatment

If you want to reduce the lines on your face without having to resort to surgical procedures, the good news is that facial rejuvenation techniques can soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. The benefit of having this treatment done by dentists is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise and safe manner. Our practice uses the botulinum toxin type A for this treatment, an injectable aesthetic solution.

Here is how it works:

  1. Once injected into the skin the botulinum toxin relaxes the tiny facial muscles, which cause expression lines, by blocking the nerve impulses in them, leaving the skin looking smoother.
     

  2. Areas on the face that can be treated include frown lines (vertical lines which form between the eyebrows), eyebrows, crow's feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth and top lip, known as 'smoker's lines'.
     

  3. The injection is quick and painless, usually lasting around 5-10 minutes and requiring no anaesthetic. Results will usually be seen in a few days, sometimes taking between 4-7 days for the effects to be seen.
     

As this is not a permanent treatment, the effects will wear off over time. It is therefore possible for the procedure to be repeated every 3 months for effective results.

Life Benefits

  • Reduced facial lines for more youthful appearance.
     

  • Non-surgical and painless procedure.

 

Skin & Hair Revitalisation

PRGF stands for Plasma Rich in Growth Factors. It is an advanced biotechnological therapy that uses a patient's own blood to encourage both healing and tissue regrowth after dental procedures such as tooth extraction, and was developed by the BTI Biotechnology Institute.
 

PRGF treatment is also an excellent option for patients who want to have dental implants but who currently lack the bone density to support those implants. It is a safe, tested and effective alternative to complicated bone graft procedures, with treatment time being three times quicker than with standard bone graft treatment. This treatment is also used to treat certain periodontal (gum) defects.

Using your own blood in lieu of donor or artificial material increases the chances of success and stimulates healing. PRGF comes in liquid, gel and fibrin membrane formats, meaning that it can be applied in a variety of complex clinical situations.

In its liquid form it is used to wet dental implant surfaces, reducing the oseointegration time (the time it takes for your implants to integrate with your jaw bone).

After a tooth has been extracted, a healing plug made of PRGF material may be placed in the socket. As well as encouraging and speeding up healing it reduces swelling and pain, and will provide antibacterial protection from infection.

Here is how treatment with PRGF material works:

  1. We will take a small amount of blood.
     

  2. The blood is put through a centrifugation and fractioning process, which produces plasma rich in growth factors. This is a patented process known as PRGF-Endoret and is approved by the FDA and CE.
     

  3. The PRGF material is prepared in the appropriate format for your treatment – liquid, gel or fibrin membrane, depending what it will be used for, and placed accordingly.
     

Our dental team are fully trained in using PRGF technology, which will give you the best possible results from treatment, as well as significantly reducing the healing time for many procedures.

Life Benefits

  • Speeds up healing time and is three times quicker than standard bone graft treatment for dental implants.
     

  • Naturally antibacterial, reducing the risk of infection.
     

  • Requires no complex or invasive procedures, and is a natural painkiller.
