A younger-looking face

When you have facial rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal fillers, in Hertford with a dentist, you can rest assured you are being treated by someone with a thorough understanding and experience of facial anatomy.

After all, part of a dentist’s seven-year training is to gain an intimate knowledge and understanding of how the muscles, nerves, tendons, organs and skin of the head, face, mouth and neck work together.

In Hertford, dermal fillers are a wonderful complement to other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as Botox. Botox works by temporarily paralysing muscles to smooth out wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers work by plumping out the skin to smooth out folds, wrinkles and hollows that naturally form as a part of ageing.

As we age, we lose the collagen in our skin that plumps it out, and we also gradually lose production of a vital chemical called hyaluronic acid. This acid forms the bonds between skin cells that make them appear to glow and it also helps the cells retain moisture. We product it naturally, so dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, are simply replacing something that used to be in our skin anyway. It can be used to plump out areas such as the lines that run between our noses and mouths, or wrinkles over the top lip that come from smoking, as well as crow’s feet and also hollows in the cheeks.

Dermal fillers in Hertford can also be used to replace the collagen in our skin, the production of which also naturally reduces as we age. Collagen provides structural support to skin, muscles, tendons and bone.

In Hertford, dermal fillers are administered via injection.The dentist will use their skill to inject just the right amount to produce a natural boost to your face, plumping and smoothing to make you look healthier and more yourself, and not as if you had had ‘work’ done.
