Facial Aesthetics

At The Gentle Dentist, we offer a range of aesthetic treatments to help soften expression lines, and define certain facial contours and features for more youthful skin. The Gentle Dentist is specially trained and qualified to administer injectables that are proven to be both safe and effective.

Types of facial aesthetics treatments

Botulinum toxin

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume, becoming prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein that temporarily paralyses the movement of the small muscles in the face, smoothing out wrinkles and age lines. The Gentle Dentist is highly trained and very experienced- she knows exactly how to make you look fresher and more relaxed – never frozen! This "injectable facelift" can create a younger, more plumper look and address concerns like wrinkles, lines, sagging, and volume loss.

Fillers

If plump lips, a youthful look and more volume is what you are after, then our dermal fillers are a perfect choice. Fillers are injections made beneath the skin to soften tissue, increase collagen production and add volume to the lips and face. As a result, they diminish the look of wrinkles and shallow areas and even reduce the appearance of scars.

Thread lifts

Thread lifting is a procedure in which temporary threads are used to create a visible but subtle change in the skin. The temporary threads are injected into the hypodermis of the skin, providing the face with a “lift”. Thread lifting has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly, and tightening and lifting the face. This treatment makes the skin smoother and brighter, resulting in fewer wrinkles and improving the skin's overall texture and youthfulness. Thread lifts also activate the body's healing response causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.

Hyaluronic Acid injections

Hyaluronic acid injections offer a temporary and non-invasive treatment to slow the signs of ageing. Our skin thins and dries out as we age, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that draws water and moisture to the skin, creating a plump and hydrating appearance. As it is a compound found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid injections are less reactive and more cost-effective - a favourite treatment at The Gentle Dentist.
