Freshen up your face with your dentist in Greystones at Lucey Dental!
When we say ‘dentist in Greystones’, your initial reaction may be ‘teeth!’ But, that’s not all we treat at Lucey Dental. For us, we believe that patients want a beautiful smile to illuminate their whole visage. And, as we age, our face can start to look a little less fresh, even after a morning cuppa. While the ageing process is a natural one that we know comes to us all, there are things that we can do to reduce the signs of it and keep your face looking more youthful for longer. Dentists are experts in facial anatomy and so our dentist in Greystones has the qualifications and experience needed to deliver facial aesthetic treatments safely. What’s more, our practice meets the highest hygiene standards, so you can be sure that you are being treated in a sterile environment by a professional who is capable of carrying out delicate procedures.
What facial aesthetic treatments do you offer?
At Lucey Dental, we offer a couple of options for freshening up your look. We offer anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers. They are both non-surgical procedures and treatment only takes minutes to complete, but there are some differences between them that are worth considering when choosing which treatment to go for.
Our anti-wrinkle injectables contain botulinum-toxin type A, which is an injectable solution that softens the fine lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses in the facial muscles, allowing the muscles to relax and the skin to soften. This means that your face will then appear more youthful and will be fresher. The treatment can easily be fitted into your lunch hour as it takes just 5 to 10 minutes to administer. Being a non-surgical procedure with no anaesthetic required as you shouldn’t feel any pain, there is also no downtime required, so you can continue with your day. You should see the maximum effects of your treatment between days 4 and 7 following the treatment. The results typically last for around 3 months, before you would require more treatment to maintain your look.
At Lucey Dental, we also offer dermal fillers that also involve injections into the face and are not a surgical procedure. However, dermal fillers work slightly differently to anti-wrinkle injectables. The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid and this is what gives the skin its elasticity and youthful appearance. As we get older, our production of this depletes and so dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid gels that are made from non-animal sources, are FDA approved and mimic the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. When our dentist injects this gel into the fine lines and wrinkles, it plumps up the skin to give it a smoother appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used in the lips to give them a fuller appearance and the results typically last 6 months for the mouth, and between 6 to 12 months for the face. Dermal fillers may also be used in the hands and the neck contour too, so you have many options with how to develop your appearance with them.
