At Gentle Dental Putney, we also help you feel confident about your appearance by providing facial cosmetic treatments, which can continue to improve the appearance of the face and mouth.
Most of us dream about having younger looking, healthier, smoother more rejuvenated skin don't we? You will be amazed at the difference simple facial aesthetics can make to your overall appearance and your confidence.
Here are just a few of the other treatments we provide in our state-of-the-art dental facility:
Our practice can help patients in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face by using botulinum toxins. These are used to soften and freeze specific muscles of the face to help address the depth of wrinkles and folds on the face and to reduce continued development of the signs of aging. It is not our aim to make your face appear 'frozen' or 'stiff', simply natural and rejuvenated.
Using a wide range of dermal fillers, we can help patients enhance their looks by defining facial contours and softening facial lines and wrinkles. This can be done in conjunction with botulinum toxins.
Our dentists can help by providing lip augmentation, which can provide fuller lips and a more defined lip line. This is done with special dermal fillers fabricated for use on these delicate areas.
The team of Gentle Dental Putney is committed to helping others in improving not only their dental health but their overall appearance to provide the confidence they need to go about their life and enjoy the benefits of beauty.
Dermal fillers continue to grow in popularity as more people seek ways to reduce the signs of aging. They are frequently called liquid facelifts because they provide many of the effects of a surgical facelift at less cost and without the pain and recovery period. Additionally, because the purpose of fillers is to return the skin to its youthful fullness, they provide more natural looking results than a surgical facelift.
Over time, gravity, sun, age, hormonal changes, lifestyle choices, and environmental toxins take their toll on the skin. Lines develop on the forehead, wrinkles form around the mouth, crow's feet develop around the eyes, the lips thin and wilt and the cheeks become sunken.
Fortunately, the facial treatments sector of Gentle Dental Putney offers treatments to reduce the signs of aging. As our skin ages, it gradually loses its hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen, which is much of the support structure for the skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain joint cushioning and lubrication as well as skin hydration and volume. It can absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water, and binds with the elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to these fibres. Restylane and Perlane are dermal fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid.
When Restylane or Perlane gel is applied, it adds volume to the skin and brings moisture to the surface, giving the area a full, fresh, and supple look. These fillers are also used to elevate sunken scars, such as those caused by acne. The results of the injections can last from four months to a full year. Restylane is extremely safe, with over 50 clinical studies; it was the first hyaluronic acid based dermal filler to be approved by the United States FDA for cosmetic treatment.
We have achieved superb results by using Restylane in conjunction with Botox. The Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the wrinkles and folds, and Restylane plumps and smoothes the treated area. This will result in a relaxed, youthful, and rejuvenated look, and typically the outcome will last longer than either treatment used independently. They can be used to effectively reduce lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and hands.
