Do you suffer with fine lines and wrinkles, sunken skin and other skin problems associated with the ageing process? Would you like younger-looking, firmer and plumper skin? If you live in Luton, dermal fillers could be a good choice for you.
Over time, internal forces (your genes, biology, the ageing process) and external forces (skincare habits, the environment) affect the quality of your skin. Our actions and lifestyle – smoking, how hydrated we keep ourselves, sun exposure and our diet can have serious effects on our skin.
As time passes, our skin loses its youthful appearance and its natural radiance. It gradually becomes thinner, less firm and less hydrated. This is because the molecule that provides a solid structure and retains hydration in our skin slows down as time goes by.
The underlying bone structure of the face also changes with time. Definition in the face, such as in the cheeks, can be visibly reduced.
Which areas can dermal fillers treat?
At our practice in Luton, dermal fillers can fill a wide variety of places and problem areas on the face, from the grooves from the nose to the mouth, lines and furrows in the forehead, lipstick lines, pits left by acne and crow’s feet. We can also plump up thin, narrow lips and sunken cheeks. Dermal fillers can even be used to contour the bridge of the nose.
In the late 1980s, Swedish scientist BengtÅgerup created a way to restore skin structure and retain natural moisture. His idea was to deliver naturally occurring hyaluronic acid to the skin safely so the skin did not detect it as a foreign substance, causing immune reactions. The resulting product was Restylane, the firstnon-animal hyaluronic acid filler in the world.
We use Restylane dermal fillers in Luton.This is a natural gel which works instantly by being injected into, or just underneath the skin, with results lasting up to 12 months.
We can provide many other preventive and cosmetic dentistry procedures in addition to dermal fillers. Luton is our dental practice location – you will find us at 260-262 Crawley Green Road, or you can call us 01582 432181.
