Facial Beauty

At Halstead Dentalcare we have now introduced Facial Beauty treatments to our treatment range, initially to compliment the cosmetic dental treatments we provide( see Tooth Whitening , Smile design and Oral Hygiene).

These treatments have proved so successful that we now get clients coming to see us for these treatments alone. We now call this side of our Practice, Facial Harmony.

Unlike larger national chain beauty clinics and salons we offer a truly personal service. You will be seen, consulted, diagnosed and treated by the same trained dental surgeon. Dental surgeons are ideally qualified to provide facial beauty treatments. We have an intimate knowledge of the facial anatomy and where injectable treatments are needed, we are very proficient at applying these as we give local anaesthetic injections every day.

Facial harmony at Halstead Dental Care are members of The Association of Facial Aesthetics ( see www.the-face.co.uk)
At Facial Harmony we offer the following treatments :-
Botulinum Toxin (‘Botox’) for facial rejuvenation

This treatment is probably the most popular cosmetic medical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles and can be used successfully either on its own or in combination with other rejuvenation treatments.

Treatment is a simple, non surgical procedure that smoothes persistent lines between your eyebrows, on your forehead and on your outer eye area.

A treatment session consists of a few tiny needle pricks that relax the muscles that caused those lines to form.

‘Botox’ is a simple’ minimally invasive treatment and there is no recovery time needed. The muscle relaxing benefits of the procedure can last up to an average of four months.

What can Botulinum Toxin be used for?

Softening lines and wrinkles on the facial area eg;

  • The forehead area (horizontal frown lines)
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Eye area (crows feet)
  • Neck area
  • Under the eyes
  • Chin

What happens during treatment?

A very small amount of Botulinum toxin is injected into the treatment area on the face using a very small needle, so discomfort is minimal. Many patients feel nothing at all , no local anaesthetic is needed, and you are able to continue with your normal activities or work immediately.

How does Botulinum Toxin work?

It works by relaxing targeted muscles under the skin. Facial lines that are formed by the contraction of these muscles will then diminish or disappear.

When will I notice a Difference?

There is a slight swelling and redness straight after , which settles within a few hours. This can be disguised with make up.
The effect starts to work within 4-5 days, with the greatest effect being seen after about 2-3 weeks.

How long will the effects last?

3-6 months depending on each individual response. Repeat treatments have been shown to have a longer effect. Treatment with botulinum toxin can typically be carried out indefinitely.

What happens Pre and post treatment?

There are no pre treatment requirements other than a screening medical questionnaire. After your treatment, we ask you to frequently move the muscles that were treated and not to lie down for several hours.
