How can I turn back the clock at a dentist in West Byfleet?

The ravages of time do not discriminate, they come for us all and while some of us may accept the changes we see in our bodies, particularly our face, we all have the options available to us to fool the eye and turn back the clock on our appearance.

At Byfleet Dental Boutique, a dentist in West Byfleet, we aim to provide you with options to achieve desirable facial aesthetics, giving you the opportunity to look your best, all with the ease of a simple trip to the dentist.

What we offer

At your local dentist in West Byfleet, we have two services for you to choose from when it comes to beauty and preserving youthfulness. Whether you are looking to reverse the signs of ageing or prevent further manifestations of age, you will be in good hands from the start.

Our first anti-wrinkle treatment is the famous Botox; approved by the FDA in 2002 for its use as a cosmetic facial treatment, used by celebrities and everyone else who has concerns about looking younger quickly and safely, that doesn’t interfere with their daily lives.

The procedure lasts only 5-10 minutes and consists of a series of injections that relax small facial muscles and blocks the nerve impulses to them, leaving the skin looking smoother and younger.

There are several areas on the face that can be treated, depending on which ones you struggle with the most. These can include frown lines which are the vertical lines between the eyebrows and treating them can create a softer more gentle appearance to your expression. Other areas we can treat are the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and lines around the mouth and top lip, known as ‘smoker’s lines’. Results aren’t immediate, sometimes taking 4-7 days to take effect and they are not permanent. We advise a top-up of Botox every three months to keep up your desired facial aesthetics.

Dermal fillers - these have been around since the 1970s, but there has been much change and improvement to the procedure since then. In the past, the use of bovine collagen was the go-to for fillers, but an adverse reaction to the product was experienced by many individuals who were discovered to be allergic to the substance, as it did not work well in the human body.

Since then, hyaluronic acid and some other semi-synthetic fillers have been introduced and used with widespread success. Fillers are used to plump up lines and wrinkles making the skin look more youthful. As we age, our bodies lose hyaluronic acid so this procedure simply puts it back, fighting the ageing process naturally without the use of animal-based products. Fillers can also be used to plump the lips and even shape the face, neck contours and hands.

The procedure at your local dentist in West Byfleet will begin with a local anaesthetic to the area that needs to be filled, it then only takes a few minutes to inject the filler and its effect is visible immediately. Fillers can last from 6 to 12 months and require follow up treatments to maintain your youthful look.
