Here at Cambuslang Dental Care we are delighted to offer a range of facial aesthetic treatments, including Line and Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments, Dermal Fillers and Lip Augmentation.
LINE AND WRINKLE RELAXING TREATMENTS
What are these treatments?
These treatments involve the use of products containing Botulinum Toxin which are injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles that cause them. Results typically last 3 months.
There are three areas targeted by this treatment:
Crow’s feet lines
The cost of treatment will depend on the number of areas treated and the
amount of product required to achieve the desired effect. As a guide:
1 area £100
2 areas £200
3 areas £250
Are there any side effects of treatment?
DERMAL FILLERS INCLUDING LIP AUGMENTATION
What are dermal fillers?
We currently use the Juvederm® range for all of our facial filler treatments. They have a good safety profile and give natural looking results. There are many types of filler available ranging from thin to thick, depending on the area being treated.
Why consider dermal fillers?
Where are the fillers injected?
1. Naso-labial folds
The nasolabial fold begins at the corner of the nose and runs down to the side of the corner of the mouth. The harshness of the nasolabial fold is one of the most common signs of ageing. When dermal fillers are placed into these folds, they hold water, hydrate and gives volume to the skin, correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
2. ‘Lipstick’ or ‘Smokers’ lines around the mouth
These lines occur as we grow older and the lip naturally starts to lose its volume, along with repetitive bunching of the tissue from muscular activity. These lines are often first noticed when lipstick starts to ‘bleed’ out of the lips into the vertical fine lines around the mouth. They are more prevalent on the upper lips. Dermal fillers are effective for treating these lines when injected in small amounts along the lines and lip border. Also worth considering is a bit of lip enhancement. Adding some bulk to the lips with dermal fillers will also have a positive effect on these lines.
3. Marionette lines
Marionette lines are the long vertical lines that are found running downwards
from the corners of the mouth. Deep ones might give the face an expression
of being sad. They are an ideal target for dermal fillers.
4. Correction of a downturned mouth
As a result of muscle activity over the years, and loss of volume from the mouth corners we can develop a look that makes us look sad even when we’re not, which again is a tell-tale sign of ageing. It is possible to lift these corners with dermal filler by adding volume and anchoring the corners of the mouth higher up.
Our lips are one of the most vulnerable areas for ageing, losing volume and fullness over time, along with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The lips become less defined which is noticeable when ‘lipstick bleeding’ occurs. Dermal fillers can ease these signs of ageing.
Dermal fillers can balance out lips that are small or uneven, while keeping the shape natural. They can provide volume in the lips, but can also be used to add definition to the lips and smooth perioral lines.
If you suffer from chronically dry lips having an injection of dermal filler is like having a deep-hydrating treat, as it boosts your skin’s ability to hydrate itself by attracting moisture.
Finally, dermal fillers can simply enhance what nature has given us, for those wanting a powerful pout.
There are various injection sites, depending on the desired result :
Vermillion border (along the lip line) to enhance the outline of the lips, and to plump out fine lines
Into the body of the lips to add volume and fullness
Into the philtrum lines to lift the upper lip and enhance the existing lines
Enhancing around the lips can be just as important as enhancing the lips themselves, so fillers can be used to lift the corners of the mouth by injecting filler around the oral commisures.
How long will the fillers last?
How much will it cost?
As a guide:
1mL of Juvederm 2/3/4 = £290
0.5mL of Juvederm Smile = £175
1mL of Juvederm Smile = £330
1mL of Juvederm Volbella/Volift = £360
If you require more than 1 syringe of filler for the desired effect, the cost of the second syringe is charged at 50% of the cost of the first.
