Smooth away the years
Although wrinkles, lines and age spots are formed naturally as we get older, one way to prevent them from appearing early on in life is to avoid direct sunlight coupled with the use of sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher. Although most of us have some form of sun damaged skin, there are ways to regain healthy, and smooth skin.
Non-surgical treatments for the face
Claims made by the cosmetics industry, based on little science, convince us of the value of using expensive creams. However, in order for these creams to be effective they must penetrate the lower layers of the epidermis. Most over the counter creams only remain on the outer layer of the skin, effectively only treating dead skin.

Before you start your course of treatment, a qualified dental practitioner will use their skills to ensure the correct diagnosis of your skin type and condition.
Muscle relaxant treatment
By using facial muscles repeatedly throughout our lifetime, the skin is creased in areas of greatest use. The aging process causes the slow down of collagen and elastin production in the skin so that, as we get older these areas of over use become damaged and the lines become permanent.
Muscle relaxant treatment reduces movement of muscles in these areas, the skin stops being creased and is thereby allowed to recover, causing the lines to soften or even fade away.
The active ingredient in Bocouture is Botulinium type A which has been used for more than 20 years. After injection, it blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract when we frown. As Bocouture relaxes the injected muscle, less muscle movement occurs, which means that glabellar lines will soften and appear less noticeable.
Dermal fillers are used to soften and contour lines, folds and wrinkles. These dermal fillers are nonanimal hyaluronic acids. The solution is injected into the skin to add volume and create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are an ideal solution for patients wanting to soften deep lines from the mouth to the nose area, minimise lip lines, enhance thin lips, create a more defined lip border and lift the corners of the mouth.

Juvederm is a range of hyaluronic acid facial fillers and each smooth gel formulation addresses a specific and unique issue. The gel is injected under the skin by your physician using an ultra-fine needle. The gel fills lines and wrinkle and adds subtle volume. The hyaluronic acid within the gel retains moisture. Depending on the treatment and product, results can last up to 18 months. Juvederm is also formulated with Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, which makes the treatment more comfortable.
