Facial aesthetics or skin rejuvenation treatments are a non-surgical way of reducing the signs of ageing on the face for both men and women. A natural, more youthful appearance can be achieved using the wrinkle-reducing treatment (such as Botox) that we provide at Castelnau Dentists. Treatment is carried out by Dr Alex Jabour, a high experienced member of our team.
A very small amount of the relaxant is softly injected into several locations on the face. Impulses are blocked from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles. The muscles therefore cannot contract and tend to relax. Although the results can be dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases in your brows.
Please see an example below of before and after treatment:
This is a simple non surgical procedure that, depending on the number of areas you wish to treat, only takes 10-15 minutes and so allows you to return home immediately afterwards.
Individuals vary however, for most people the results last from 4 to 6 months.
No sedation or local anaesthetic is required for the treatment. Most people experience only a mild temporary discomfort.
Treatments have been safely and successfully used for more than 12 years on over 1 million people worldwide. Any side effects are temporary and localised to the area injected.
Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling and redness around the treated area, however this swelling subsides within a few hours.
