Are fine lines and wrinkles around your face making you look older than you really are? A lifetime of being exposed to the elements, and our choice of diet and lifestyle, takes its toll on our skin and, as we age, our skin finds it harder to rejuvenate.
In addition to our comprehensive range of dental treatments, we offer non-surgical injectable facial treatments such as Botox® in Kingston - better known as Botulinum Toxin - and dermal fillers, which are used to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and make your face look younger. Our experienced facial aesthetics team uses the latest and safest techniques to get the best possible results.
Our range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments includes lip and cheek enhancement, jawline shaping, brow lift, and neck, chin and nose reshaping. We also offer Botox treatment for problems such as migraine headaches and under arm sweating. Our treatments include:
What is Botox?
Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein that temporarily paralyses nerve endings. It is used to treat a range of medical disorders including migraines and excessive sweating.
Used for cosmetic purposes, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing the muscles that are holding those lines in place.How does it work?
Botox is administered via an injection. It is a non-surgical procedure and minimally-invasive. This means there's no anaesthetic used and no long recovery time. The procedure itself takes 20-30 minutes and can feel mildly uncomfortable. Once treatment is complete you can go about your daily business as usual.What areas does it work on?
The top third of the face: wrinkles in the forehead and the fine lines around the eyes.Do I need to prepare?
Drink plenty of water and avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication two weeks before. It's also best to avoid alcohol for a week beforehand.Why go to a dentist?
Dentists are trained medical professionals who study the complex and intricate anatomy of the face for five years to qualify, so we know exactly where to inject the Botox for the most natural-looking effect. This really matters with Botox, as you'll know if you've seen celebrities who have had ended up with a less than natural-looking face due to poor treatment.
We also work with the muscles of the face every day and we regularly administer injections.
And Botox is a natural extension of cosmetic dentistry, creating a more youthful looking face to show off a brighter smile.Will it affect the rest of my face?
With our sensitively applied treatment, only the selected muscles will be affected, and only just enough to relax the wrinkles. You will still be able to show a range of facial expressions and feel sensitivity in your skin.How long does it last?
It takes around three days for the effects to show and they last for 3-4 months. Once the lines start appearing again, you can book in for a top-up treatment
Safe and natural injectables that are used to provide volume and restore fullness to the skin, in order to reduce facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds that extend from the nose to the lips). Cosmetic dermal fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Dermal fillers are typically used o fill lines and folds around the mouth, lips, and the cheek hollows. They can also be used to reshape areas such as the nose. They smooth wrinkles and deep facial folds and are commonly used to ‘plump up’ lips.
Platelets have long been known for their role in early hemostasis, while their tissue regenerative properties have been discovered only over the last decade. Recent studies have shown that platelets contain hundreds of active growth factors, all critical during tissue healing and regeneration. By isolating and concentrating platelets through centrifugation it is possible to concentrate the growth factors and deliver them in a specific area where bio-stimulation is needed. The highly concentrated growth factors stimulate endothelial cells and fibroblasts to proliferate and differentiate leading to new collagen deposition and contraction. In addition, platelets stimulate the recruitment and differentiation of stem cells.
What makes our clinic different is we invested in world class high end injection gun. The U225® is made from quality components that are based on aeronautical industry technology incorporating the most advanced techniques in terms of precision and safety and thus guaranteeing long-term, reliable, safe and absolutely PAINFREE delivery of PRP or Vitamins into the skin.
Also recruiting the latest medical advancements and mixing the PRP With Hyaluronic Acid (HA) has made this fascinating treatment more effective and made the result significantly enhanced.
If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, it amplifies the body's naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. Some doctors around the world believe PRP can be used to stimulate the growth of hair follicles preventing hair loss.
PRP is also found very effective for preparing the scalp prior to hair transplant treatment and for maintaining the hair after hair transplant treatment. Using high end injection gun makes this procedure at our clinic completely pain free and there is no downtime at all. Some of our patients coming for treatment even in their lunch time.
The next generation Micro-Needling device.
This can help with:
FINE LINES | WRINKLES | SCARS
SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body's natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin.
SkinPen needles enter the skin at 90 degrees and can treat certain hard to reach areas, such as those around the eyes, nose, and mouth, changing the depth of the needle as most suitable for each individual.
Can be used at any time of the year. A short procedure time, approximately 30 minutes. Mild post-procedure effects, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, with a quick 24 hour recovery time. Typically 3-6 procedures for optimal results. Effective face, neck,décolletage, and body. Safe for ALL skin types.
At Kingston Dental Clinic, we use the latest micro needling pens, which is also very safe and has a minimum downtime. Using the local anesthetics and controlling the depth of needles in different areas making this treatment almost painless.
