If you have concerns about the condition and health of your skin, Prospect Street Dental Practice can offer facial aesthetic treatment to provide solutions for lines and wrinkles.
Our dentists not only have skills honed from years of administering injections in difficult and restrictive areas, but they are also highly knowledgeable about the anatomy of the face and understand how to treat it safely. The Prospect Street Dental Practice team have vast experience in observing symmetry and balance in patient’s faces to create aesthetically pleasing smiles.
As we age, the skin produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid. This can cause the skin to look crepey, saggy, less plump and fold formation.
Dermal Fillers are an injectable treatment which are predominantly hyaluronic acid based gels. They can be used to smoothen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They can also add volume to areas of concern such as cheeks or lips.
Dermal fillers last for around six months to two years. They can be topped up when you feel the effects are wearing off.
Is a very popular and extremely safe non-surgical facial treatment.
It works by injecting a small amount of purified protein into muscles. The purified protein relaxes the muscles which softens the appearance of wrinkles.
You can have natural looking results without the “frozen” look. You start to see results within 4 days which gradually improves over 14 days. Results last 3-4 months.
Anti- wrinkle injections are very versatile and can be used across the face, such as forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet around the eyes, and many more.

Skin slows down its ability to produce good collagen and elasticity from the age of 28. As the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of our skin change. Age, hormones, sun exposure and smoking, all have a part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin may feel slighter harder and less elastic.
The amount of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance produced by your skin, decreases with age, causing us to retain less water. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active and our skin becomes drier. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth.
There are two major components of facial ageing:
- Dynamic lines which form only when moving the muscle, like a frown for example.
- Static lines, which are wrinkles that have become ingrained into the skin due to the volume loss.
Treating both of these main components of facial ageing leads to natural, balanced and refined outcomes. Can you stop or slow down the process?
Of course, you can never stop the natural ageing process, but a healthy diet and lifestyle will help slow this down and may minimise ageing effects. Regular exercise, keeping hydrated, along with a healthy diet will all help.
But if you’re looking for some help to rejuvenate your skin, and restore your personal confidence, facial aesthetic treatments may be used to soften lines and define facial contours.
