ANTI-AGEING INJECTIONS

At Facial Aesthetics In The City, we believe in a "less is more" approach. We can't promise to turn back the clock, but, with our skill and aesthetic judgement, we can certainly help you to look and feel your best.

Facial Aesthetics treatments vary; some are injectables that either block nerve signals to your muscles or fill out your complexion, while others are topical treatments. Dentists are especially well qualified to administer these treatments thanks to their in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy. Treatments at Facial Aesthetics In The City are straightforward and quick to carry out, requiring little to no recovery time. They are ideal for anyone who wants to achieve the subtle changes that will have people remarking on how well you look, without knowing why.

Anti-wrinkle injections

We gently place injections in key locations around the face, to temporarily block the signals from nerves to the tiny underlying muscles that contribute to wrinkles. This relaxes your skin and literally wipes the stress off your face. It’s especially effective on the brow and around the eyes and mouth. Other popular uses include treating the top lip to help counter the effect of a gummy smile, and treating the underarms to reduce excessive sweating.

Anti-sweat treatment

This can be a life changing treatment for those who suffer from excessive under arm perspiration (hyperhidrosis). The treatment involves the administration of tiny carefully placed injections to the underarms. This leads to the blockage of the sweat producing nerves which ensures that your underarms remain dry no matter how hot the weather or how much you work out!

Gummy Smile

A smile that shows too much of the gum line below the top lip can cause some people to be self-aware of, and uncomfortable with, their smiles. Injections placed in the upper lip can relax the hyperactive muscles causing the lip to over-elevate and so reduce the amount of gum seen when smiling.

What can I expect from my experience at Facial Aesthetics In The City?

Before carrying out any treatment we will ask you to attend a 30-minute consultation to discuss your aspirations and our recommendations for achieving the best possible result. You are under no obligation to continue with treatment following this consultation. We will take clinical photographs so that we can plan your treatment thoroughly, and assess you medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate. Following your treatment, you will be given full aftercare instructions and of course are always welcome to get in touch with any questions.
