At Courtyard Dental, we offer more than dental services. Schedule a consultation with one of our facial aesthetics practitioners to learn more about our non-surgical skin treatments.
Wind, sun, cold, pollution, fatigue, emotional changes, hormonal swings and the passage of time all impact the structure of your skin. Additionally, your skin’s natural moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally declines with age. Over time, this moisture loss can create lines around your lips and nose and reduces fullness around your cheeks, jaw and lips.
Dermal fillers are an injectable facial aesthetics treatment that introduces a specially-formulated type of HA to your skin, and helps restore lost volume to your face. This treatment is temporary, and patients may elect to have a follow-up treatment when the effects wear off.
What are Dermal Fillers and How Do They Work?
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical option used to replace the HA that exists naturally in skin. Injecting dermal filler moisturises the skin from the inside, while adding elasticity and tone.
We use a natural, biodegradable dermal filler gel that flows easily and smoothly into your skin, adding volume to the face and filling in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Our patients tend to notice a difference immediately after their first treatment.
At Courtyard Dental, we do our best to make sure our patients have a pleasant visit, and this also applies to our facial aesthetics treatments. Our dermal fillers come with added anaesthetic, which helps make the treatment more comfortable.
Treatable Areas for Dermal Fillers
Wrinkles and fine lines are the result of making facial expressions. The muscles that contract when you frown, smile, worry and more eventually start to show in your skin.
We offer wrinkle-relaxing injections, which use very tiny needles to administer the service. This treatment does not require local anaesthesia, as there is only a small amount of discomfort during the injection. The service takes only a few minutes, so any discomfort is generally fleeting.
During your facial aesthetics consultation, we can discuss your concerns and the best way to resolve these.
How Wrinkle-Relaxing Injections Work
Wrinkle-relaxing injections are a non-surgical facial aesthetics service. In this treatment, the injection causes specific facial muscles to stop contracting by blocking the nerve signals that tell a muscle to contract. When the facial muscles stop making certain movements, it helps soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This muscle relaxation is temporary, and will gradually wear off.
Our facial aesthetics practitioner will discuss your skin concerns during your consultation and advise you which of our products best suits you. If wrinkle-relaxing injections are suited to your issues, we will book your appointment.
Treatable Areas for Wrinkle-Relaxing Injections
This facial aesthetics treatment can be used in a few areas on the face. Many patients request this service to treat the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines–the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
Other areas that can be treated include:
