New To Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?

Some ‘first time’ tips from our Wickford facial aesthetics team.

If you are approaching a ‘certain age’ and have started to notice unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face, there is a chance that you will have considered anti-wrinkle treatment such as Botox to reduce them. It is also very likely that you will have seen some horrific images of facial treatments that have ‘gone wrong’, producing very bad results. It is understandable then, that you may be feeling quite wary about this treatment and uncertain whether to proceed or not.

The first thing that we should say is that facial aesthetics is perfectly safe, providing that treatments are administered by qualified practitioners such as those at the Cygnet Dental Practice. It is true that extreme effects can be achieved using this treatment, but our team follow ethical guidelines and may refuse any treatment that we feel would be detrimental.

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

These are purified natural substances which work by relaxing the muscles on your face that cause lines and wrinkles to appear. It does not ‘freeze’ your face, as some claim, providing it is administered correctly.

First time advice

If you are considering treatment, but are wary; rather than read some of the worrying articles on the internet, why not speak to a qualified practitioner at our Wickford practice. They will be happy to explain the procedure and the likely effects in an honest and unbiased manner so that you can make your own decision based on facts, rather than fiction.

Should you decide to go ahead, you will be well looked after by our experienced team. The procedure itself is not uncomfortable, although you may feel a pricking sensation as the needle enters the skin. This may leave a little localised bruising which will disappear within a few days, so you may wish to arrange an appointment away from social engagements or even take a few days from work if this concerns you.

Rather than go for a full blown ‘facial makeover’ on your first visit, why not discuss one particular area that is concerning you, with our aesthetic team? This will enable you to see how you feel about the treatment without making too dramatic change to your appearance.

Like many patients of the Cygnet Dental Practice, we suspect that you will be very happy with the outcome and will return for more treatment to help maintain younger looking skin. The good news is that these treatments can be administered for as long as you wish.

If you would like to find out more about our facial aesthetics products and live in the Wickford or Rayleigh areas, why not come and talk to us about what you would like to achieve, and a treatment plan can then be put into place.
