Wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and folds on the face can reveal how old we are. Many of us would like to find a miracle cure to turn back the hands of time. One of the main areas with signs of aging that people complain about is the lower half of the face - specifically the Nasolabial folds and Marionette lines. Nasolabial folds are more commonly known as 'smile lines' or 'laugh lines'. Marionette Lines are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin and are usually more visible in aging skin.
Here at Castelnau Dentists we offer treatment in the form of 'Dermal Fillers' which are specifically designed for these trouble-some areas. Treatment is provided by Christie Lawton - who is an experienced Facial Aesthetics practitioner.

Dermal fillers offer a safe and natural treatment that restores volume and fullness to refresh and revitalise your appearance. Ideal for deeper lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers work at a deep dermal level to delay the signs of ageing by ‘filling out’ and smoothing away wrinkles in troublesome areas that include:
Please see an example below of before and after treatment:
The most common dermal filler used is a temporary filler called Hyaluronic acid (such as Juvéderm® ULTRA).
Hyaluronic acid is one of nature’s most versatile and fascinating substances. It is found throughout the body as well as in most other living organisms. It has many functions, from giving the skin elasticity and providing our skin with volume, giving it a youthful appearance. Restylane and Juvederm are sterile gels consisting of non-animal, cross-linked, hyaluronic acid (HA) that are made in a laboratory. They contain no human or animal DNA and have the best safety profile of all the fillers currently on the market as it is the only type of filler that is reversible. These products are FDA approved for use by medical professionals.
The cost of treatment to soften nose and mouth lines with dermal fillers starts at £350.
This is a simple non-surgical procedure that usually takes 20 to 25 minutes. The dermal filler will be injected in precise locations on your skin and gently massaged in to smooth the product. During the procedure, you will be fully awake and will be given a mirror to hold to enable you to see the results.
The results are immediate, and can last from six to twelve months.
Your clinician (Christie) will advise you on your aftercare during your treatment appointment. You may be advised to stop wearing makeup for up to 6 hours. You may also be told to avoid the sun, as well as saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites but this will soon pass.
