At Oldmeldrum Dental, we believe in taking care of the whole family and have been doing so for generations! Our dentist in Aberdeenshire can help with all of your dental needs from general dentistry, through to cosmetic or restorative dentistry, for example. However, this isn’t all our dentists have to offer! We also have facial aesthetics treatments to complete your whole look from your beautiful smile to the super skin on your face that glows around it. We believe that feeling healthy and happy should be everybody’s goal and we have the skills, knowledge and technology to make it happen. While you may not have thought of visiting a dentist in Aberdeenshire for facial aesthetics treatments, it should make perfect sense, when you consider that a dentist is an expert in facial anatomy. Dentists are also highly skilled at performing procedures such as injections into the facial muscles. What’s more, here with our dentist in Aberdeenshire, we have the highest standards, so you can feel happy and secure about having your treatment in our practice.
What facial aesthetics treatments do you offer?
We have two FDA approved treatments for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We offer anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Both of these treatments only take a few minutes to administer and neither of them require any downtime, so you can pop in to see us and have your treatment in your lunch break, although we do also offer extended opening hours for your convenience.
Our anti-wrinkle injections contain an injectable solution called botulinum toxin type A. When the facial muscles are injected with this, it blocks the nerve impulses and allows the skin to relax and appear smoother. It can take around 4 to 7 days for the full effects of the treatment to be seen and the results should last for around 3 months before you will need to have further sessions to maintain your youthful appearance. The treatment should be pain-free, which is definitely what we’re all about! We don’t want any of our treatments to be painful and believe in gentle care.
Dermal fillers are similar, except that they contain hyaluronic acid gels. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid and does so to give the skin its elasticity. Sadly, the amount we naturally produce decreases as we age, and so having dermal fillers gives the skin the boost it needs to keep looking fuller and smoother for longer. We will inject the hyaluronic acid gels into the fine lines and wrinkles to plump them up and to allow the skin to appear rejuvenated immediately. We use local anaesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel anything whilst having the treatment. Dermal fillers can also be used for contouring the face, neck and hands, as well as for lip fillers. Lip fillers typically last for 6 months, before they require a top-up.
