We have all seen the horror stories of what can go wrong with even the most simple and straightforward cosmetic facial procedures when they are not being administered by a trusted person with a history of working in the area of medicine.
Which is why we at Hertford Dental Care, offer high quality aesthetics in Hertford you can trust.
The dentists here want you to make the most of your smile, and so it makes sense to us that not only will you want dental treatment to improve your teeth, but you will want to show that smile off in a face that is looking as fresh as a daisy.
A dentist already has the deep and extensive knowledge of the muscles, bones, tendons, nerves and organs that make up the face and neck, so we are well placed to make facial aesthetic treatments are as effective and natural-looking as possible.
In Hertford, Botox and dermal fillers are two easily-administered, long-lasting, but not permanent, ways to smooth out facial wrinkles and fill in hollows. As we age and our facial skin naturally loses the fat underneath it and the collagen within it, and these signs of ageing start to appear.
In our practice in Hertford, Botox (a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin) is delivered in gel form via a painless injection. It works by temporarily relaxing the tiny facial muscles, smoothing out the skin above. Here in Hertford, botox is typically used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet, lines from smoking, frown lines and pockets between the eyes. Each treatment area takes between five and ten minutes, and takes up to seven days to appear. The results last up to six months.
Dermal fillers work by plumping out hollows by replacing the skin’s lost collagen and hyaluronic acid. In Hertford, dermal fillers can also provide instant results. Juvéderm is both a popular, and a well-trusted system, which is delivered via a painless injection. Dermal fillers are commonly used to refresh crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines, and to plump up lips and cheeks. The instant results last between six months and a year, depending on the area being treated.
