In the last issue we introduced the new management team, Principals Dr Brijal Patel BDS and Dr Dipen Patel BDS MJDF (FGDP(UK)) who recently took over Stangrove Court Dental Practice which has been established for over 40 years. We also covered the wide range of dental treatments available, including general and cosmetic dentistry.
The other range of services available at Stangrove Court are aesthetic treatments to treat wrinkles, such as Botox and Dermal Fillers. The benefit of having such treatments performed by your dentist is that they have thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy.
These anti-wrinkle treatments will help reduce the lines on your face without you having to resort to surgical procedures and can be done from their practice on Stangrove Road.
The injection of botulinum toxin relaxes the tiny facial muscles by blocking the nerve impulses and reducing the visibility of ‘expression lines’ on the face. The areas on the face which can be treated in this way include:
- frown lines
- crow’s feet
- forehead lines
- lines around the mouth and top lip
Although the effects will not be permanent, you can repeat the procedure every 3 months to maintain a more youthful appearance.
The procedure can also be used to treat severe or excess sweating and also help with teeth grinding issues.
Another way of visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines is by injecting Dermal Fillers into the skin. This treatment involves the injection of sterile hyaluronic acid gels made from non-animal sources into the skin, plumping up the facial lines and wrinkles resulting in a smoother, more youthful look. As we age, our own hyaluronic acid is lost. These fillers can also be used for lip enhancement and for shaping facial, hand and neck contours.
Consultations for these treatments are free and Dr Dipen Patel will be able to provide you with more information on which would be the best solution for you.
If you would like to find out more about any of the services and treatments on offer at Stangrove Court Dental Practice, the team look forward to hearing from you:
