Botox and dermal fillers are the main treatment procedures which are carried out to help rejuvenate ageing skin. Botox is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by muscles of expression whilst dermal fillers are used to to replace volume lost due to the loss of collagen over time. With age we lose volume in the cheeks, temples and chin and this causes an aged appearance as a result of decreased collagen production. To help restore youthfulness here at Sandygate Dental we are pleased to be able to offer you hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which our dentist in Sheffield can use to replace the loss in volume caused by age.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is present in our skin alongside elastin and collagen. It is used in the form of a gel which we can inject into your target areas. By injecting the hyaluronic acid fillers into your face we will promote the formation of new collagen and elastin which will help rejuvenate the face, lifting your cheeks and filling in areas of lost volume therefore improving the appearance of your face as a whole.
How are dermal fillers carried out?
The procedure itself is quick, simple and effective. Our dentist in Sheffield will choose the correct filler for the specific area that is to be treated. There are different types of fillers and a tiny needle is used to inject the filler into the target area that we are looking to treat. The treatment procedure itself lasts between 5 to 10 minutes. The gel will be injected into the skin carefully and slowly by a trained dentist in Sheffield and there should be very little or no pain, discomfort or bleeding. Many of our patients apply their makeup and go straight to work or carry on with their normal daily activities after the procedure.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to treat a range of cosmetic issues including the correction of dark circles and eye bags, plumping of the skin on the face and neck, neck lift and tightening of the jaw. With a combination of Botox and dermal fillers we can carry out a non-surgical facelift to transform your appearance completely but still retain a natural appearance at the same time. The recovery period of these procedures is very short and you will achieve noticeable results within a week. If you experience swelling or bruising this should go down within 48 hours if not you can speak to our dentist in Sheffield for immediate assistance.
