Anti - Wrinkle Injections
Fine line and wrinkles appear when muscles in the face are overused. Botulinum toxin, commonly known as “botox”is an agent that blocks electrical impulses that make these muscle move; stopping the over usage occurring. This gives the face a more relaxed appearance. Lines and wrinkles become smoother and can eventually disappear altogether!
Over the past few years anti wrinkle injections have become one of the most popular anti-ageing facial treatments. Botulinum toxin can be used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as preventing new wrinkles from forming.
At Bucklersbury Dental Studio we aim to ensure that any treatment will looking natural and subtle. The key to good treatment is that no-one should know that you have had it – except those that you want to know!
As we age our skin loses elasticity and as this happens wrinkles form. Over time these can become deeper and more noticeable. Botulinum toxin is currently one of the most effective treatments for lines and wrinkles available on the market. By also restricting excessive facial movements, it can help to prevent further wrinkles from forming.
Prior to any treatment you will be seen by one of our highly trained prescribing dentists. At Bucklersbury Dental Studio our main concern is your safety and this is why we only offer tried and tested fully approved medical products produced by renowned manufacturers.
The Botulinum toxin is injected carefully into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. You should not experience any pain and following treatment you will be able to continue on with your day as normal as there is no recovery time following the procedure. Within two to three days you should start to see the effects and within two weeks you will be able to see the full effects on your youthful, glowing appearance.
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere between three and six months after which a top up treatment will be needed. At each treatment you should require fewer injections as the treatment has a cumulative effect.
The treatment itself is not harmful, but you may notice some redness and swelling following the treatment but these should calm down within a couple of days.
Dermal fillers are agents made up of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule, which is naturally produced by the body and found in almost all living things. They are used to ‘fill up’ areas that may have lost their original hyaluronic acid and collagen due to the ageing process. Dermal fillers are injected under the skin into these areas that may have lost their natural fullness, resulting in firmer, fuller skin.
As your skin ages it loses collagen that helps shape and support it. This means that lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and stress will all take their toll to age your appearance and the face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and a dragged down appearance.
Dermal fillers can help to give your face a more youthful appearance plumping up skin and reducing the depth of lines and wrinkles. When used to enhance your lips they can help to give you a more pronounced pout.
As with any treatment at Bucklersbury Dental Studio any dermal fillers will be tailored to your individual needs, ensuring that you will receive the most natural possible look.
Down time following treatment is minimal and any swelling or bruising following treatment should fade within 48 hours of treatment.
The effects of treatment can last anywhere between 6 to 12 months and we would recommend that you have regular top up treatments to ensure that you skin always looks as radiant as possible.
Dermal fillers are becoming an increasingly popular treatment for wrinkles and facial lines.
A dermal filler treatment can help to fill in and smooth out:
Nose to mouth grooves “laughter” lines
Down turned smile/sad facial expression
A personalised treatment plan will be discussed with you at your free consultation appointment.
Tired of pencilling in your eyebrows? Eyeliner smudging? Having to keep reapplying lippy?
Then semi-permanent makeup is for you!
Semi permanent makeup is a carefully applied colour pigment applied to the deeper layer of the skin, similar to a tattoo. The pigment is made of a natural iron oxide which is hypoallergenic, fragrance free and free of emollients or other added ingredients. The pigments are perfectly safe, approved by doctors and are even used in reconstructive surgery.
Popular treatments include eyebrow filling, eye liner and lip blush.
Eyebrows: Fabulous eyebrows can add instant lift, shape and contour to your face. Choose from a soft powdered looking eyebrow, or maybe a natural hair stroke looking brow, or even a stronger looking powerful brow.
We can choose pigment colours to replicate individual hairs along the brow, a great solution for sparse, over plucked or missing brows.
We can define a brow shape with colour to create a stronger, thicker effect.
We can lift the brow using placement, shape and colour to give a refreshed, youthful appearance to the face.
Eye liner: Show off your gorgeous eyes with an eyeliner treatment or subtly enhance your eyes with a lash enhancement line. The major benefit of permanent eyeliner is that it never smears or rubs off the skin even through watery eyes, perspiration, sleep and the weather.
Whether you would like full eyeliner or a soft natural line to enhance your eye colour, this treatment offers you the full spectrum of colour and choice to suit you.
By applying a fine line through the top, bottom or both sets of lashes we will give your eye greater definition looking as if you have applied mascara
Lips: You can have beautiful fuller looking lips by recreating symmetry, adding a lip liner to re-define or choosing a lip blend to add fullness of colour. Lip treatments eliminate lipstick smearing and bleeding. Lipstick and lip gloss can still be applied but your lips will never be bare again.
Lip treatments are perhaps the most under estimated of all the treatments. It's a sad fact that as you get older the border of your lip becomes less defined and your natural lip colour lightens. A lip liner and blend not only gives you a subtle hint of colour into the lip but also re-defines the border of the lip, giving your lips a fuller shape. You can choose a subtle colour or a darker shade and we will advise you about colour and realistic results.
Skin peels are fast becoming the most popular facial treatments for skin renewal.
They improve and smooth the skin’s texture, resulting in a much more even complexion, which glows.
Skin peels work by causing dead skin cells on the surface of the skin to shed. This shedding is usually mild and un-noticeable with gentle skin peels.
Skin cell turnover becomes slower over time, and is sped up due to the skin peel process.
This in turn reduces the appearance of ageing skin, dullness, roughness, fine lines and wrinkles.
As well as using skin peels for lines and wrinkles, they can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including acne, age spots, sun damage, mild scarring and more!
Skin peels are available in varying strengths from very superficial to deep.
We will discuss your needs and plan the best treatment option tailored to you.
When considering skin peels it is important to look at your skin care regime as a whole.
Most creams and serums bought over the counter are too thick to be absorbed by the skin and end up sitting on the surface, which causes dullness, blocked pores and even acne.
It may be time to ditch the beloved skin cream and go for a medical based product which really will do what it says on the tin!
The skin micro-needling is a convenient multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks.
The skin micro-needling is a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium micro needles, which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding. This is a completely safe treatment that has accurate and superficial penetration into the skin. This allows much higher absorption of serums and creams. It can also stimulate skin’s self-repair and regeneration as it can stimulate the skin’s healing response.
The concept of Skin Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Micro-Needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen production, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. Skin Micro-Needling provides results similar to Laser Resurfacing and Chemical Peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime.
It also works well in conjunction with other wrinkle reduction treatments such as Anti wrinkle injections and Fillers but can also act as a great alternative to Anti wrinkle injections as it does not involve injecting any agents into the skin.
Here at the studio we use only derma rollers made from titanium, which is an extremely hard metal that does not pit or become damaged like stainless steel after use. This means that there is no tearing of the skin, which could cause scarring.
The skin micro-needling is also the most cost-effective way of effective skin regeneration when compared to other therapies. The derma roller is a breakthrough tool, simple in design and yet giving superb results. It has been hailed as “The magic wand of skin care”.
