Finding the right dentist Soho who can address all your oral health needs while also offering additional cosmetic treatments can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, at PS Dental Care, we go above and beyond to provide a comprehensive range of services to ensure that our patients not only achieve optimal oral health, but also look and feel their best. Our practice not only offers general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative, and orthodontic treatments, but also takes care of those fine lines and wrinkles that can impact your overall appearance.
Botulinum toxin type A injections
At PS Dental, we offer a couple of anti-wrinkle treatments. The first is botulinum toxin type A, commonly known as Botox. This anti-wrinkle injection contains a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium, clostridium botulinum. When used in medical and cosmetic procedures, it is purified and carefully administered in small doses to temporarily relax specific muscles.
How they work
Anti-wrinkle injections work by our dentist Soho injecting the facial muscles. The injections block the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. By doing so, it prevents the targeted muscles from contracting forcefully, leading to a reduction in the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form when facial expressions are made, such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow's feet around the eyes, and forehead lines.
Advantages of botulinum toxin type A
The great thing about anti-wrinkle injections is that they are highly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles caused by muscle movement, providing a smoother and more youthful look. The treatment involves small injections and requires no surgical incisions, making it a non-invasive and relatively painless procedure. The injections are usually quick to administer, often taking less than 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated and patients will be able to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure, as there is minimal downtime associated with Botox treatments. Results should be seen in 4 to 7 days, and you will only require top-up treatments every 3 months or so.
Our other treatment is dermal fillers. These are injectable substances designed to add volume to specific areas of the face and soften the appearance of static wrinkles – those that are present even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid gels that are FDA approved and are made from non-animal sources. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture and keep the skin plump.
How they work
Dermal fillers work by replenishing lost volume and stimulating collagen production in the targeted areas. When injected under the skin, they lift and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, restoring a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers are highly effective in reducing the appearance of static wrinkles and restoring lost volume, such as in the cheeks and lips. These injections can provide a non-surgical facelift, offering noticeable results without the need for invasive surgery. It is a quick procedure just like our anti-wrinkle injections. This makes it a convenient treatment, requiring minimal time at the dental practice. With the skilled administration of dermal fillers from our dentist Soho who is an expert in facial anatomy, you can achieve natural-looking results, enhancing the facial features without appearing overly ‘done’. The results will be seen instantly and can last between 6 to 12 months, before a top-up treatment is required.
Which treatment is right for you?
The choice between botulinum toxin type A injections and dermal fillers depends on your specific concerns and the areas you wish to address. Some individuals may benefit from both treatments, as they can complement each other to provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
