Reversing The Appearance Of Ageing Skin

Facial Aesthetics Treatment At Our Ipswich Practice For Smoother-Looking Skin.

Having a great-looking smile, achieved through cosmetic dental treatments, is a great way to both look and feel younger. But what if our skin lets us down though? Ageing signs such as wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes are almost impossible to hide and can make us appear to be much older than we would actually like, irrespective of whether we have good teeth and a nice smile.

Thankfully, the facial aesthetics team at The Lighthouse Dental Practice here in Ipswich can help you to regain your looks through the use of anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers.

Younger looking skin

One of the first signs of ageing that we tend to notice is when lines and wrinkles start to appear on our faces. Whilst these may be postponed, to some degree, with moisturising creams, appear they certainly will. Fortunately, the anti wrinkle treatments available at our local clinic can help you to restore your skin to its more youthful self.

Common areas where wrinkles appear, such as on the forehead, the corners of the eye (crow’s feet) and frown lines can be treated using just a small injection of anti-wrinkle serum into these areas, placed just beneath the skin. This procedure should cause no significant discomfort although you are likely to experience a small pricking sensation as the needle enters the skin.

The effect of the anti-wrinkle serum will start to be noticeable within a week, with the full results being seen after around two weeks. This effect will last for many months and the treatment is repeatable should you so wish. This is a safe procedure when performed by experienced facial aesthetic practitioners such as those at The Lighthouse Dental Practice.

Dermal fillers

It isn’t just lines and wrinkles that can give away our age. As we grow older, the collagen in our skin starts to diminish. This causes features that were once filled out to start to thin and sag. The main areas affected by this process are the cheeks and the lips. Lip enhancement treatment is very popular and you should not fear the ‘trout pout’ so beloved by sensationalist story writers. This will not happen when done correctly.

Excessive sweating

Some of these treatments may also be used to curb excessive sweating, which can be an embarrassing problem for some people. It can have a number of causes and it is important that you have this checked with your GP to make sure that there are no underlying problems that may need treatment.

Providing that your GP gives you the all-clear and it simply becomes a social problem, it is worth considering arranging a consultation with our team to discuss how we can help you.
