Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening can transform your smile, and because people will notice the difference, it can also transform the way you feel about yourself. The treatment is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth.

Teeth can discolour over time, and the process is accelerated by smoking and by staining agents found in such things as tea, coffee and cola. The whitening techniques removes the staining from deep within the tooth, the degree of whitening achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of whitening process chosen.

The home whitening treatment begins with us taking impressions (or moulds) of your teeth. A technician uses these to create custom-made "trays" which fit snugly to your teeth. These trays can be kept and used for further treatments, so this part of the process need never be repeated. Because the trays are made specifically for you, they ensure maximum contact between the whitening gel and your teeth, and minimum contact with gum tissue, reducing the chance of any irritation. You use trays at home, placing them over your teeth for a few hours or sometimes overnight. Successful whitening can normally be achieved after two/three weeks, depending on the degree and type or discolouration.

Wrinkle relaxing - botulinum toxin

Every time you laugh, smile or frown, wrinkles are created by the contraction in your delicate facial muscles. Over time, these contractions cause frown lines, crow's feet and laughter lines. Botulinum Toxin works by blocking impulses from the nerves to the tiny facial muscles, temporarily relaxing them so that they don't contract. This softens the appearance of fine lines and the skin becomes more youthful looking. While the untreated muscles react in a normal way, allowing facial expressions to be unaffected, the skin itself remains smooth and unwrinkled.

Our wrinkle treatment involves a tiny amount of Azzalure Botulinum Toxin being injected with a very fine needle into several locations in the face. There is minimal or no discomfort. Treatment can be carried out immediately, as no patch testing is required. The treatment is usually completed in 30 minutes and you will be able to resume your daily life immediately after. The only negative signs of the treatment may be a slight temporary redness, which can occur with any injection, and a very occasional bruise.

The treatment can cause weakness of injected nearby muscles, causing asymmetry of facial expression or drooping of the eyelids but this is very rare. The risk of any side effects depends upon the muscles injected. Botulinum Toxin is completely reversible, any side effects are temporary, lasting only days or weeks.

The effects are usually apparent 3 to 4 days following treatment and will last 3 to 4 months, when everything will return to pre-treatment condition.

This effective and inexpensive treatment achieves superb results and is ideal for the removal of:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Gummy smiles
  • Bunny line

Dermal fillers

The skin's hydration, resistance, tone and elasticity are crucial to its appearance. As it ages, skin becomes wrinkled and loses elasticity due the depletion of naturally occurring collagen, fat and hyaluronic acid, which keep the skin smooth and supple. Cosmetics and moisturising products such as anti-ageing creams act on the upper layers of the skin, primarily the epidermis. Because dermal fillers work in the dermis, the deeper skin layer, they achieve fundamental and lasting correction for wrinkles and depressions.

Treatment fills fine lines and folds, while the mouth can become fuller and lips more clearly defined, augmentation in the cheek area can enhance the oval facial shape often associated with a younger appearance.

We use different fillers depending on the type of wrinkle/area to be treated. They are both made of a purified form of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of our skin. The results of a treatment last from six to twelve months.
