As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of ageing. It’s an inevitable part of life and can be quite the knock in confidence when you start to notice lines around your eyes and mouth. These wrinkles are a side-effect of your skin losing collagen and elastin, components in the chemical make-up of your skin responsible for its volume and elasticity.
Andre, our qualified clinician, has a range of facial aesthetic treatments that can help combat these wrinkles. Whether you wish to smooth away noticeable lines that appear when you laugh, frown or smile, or those pesky lines that are always on view, we can offer treatments that will help.
Why visit your dental practice for facial aesthetics?
Many people would assume that these types of treatments belong in a beautician’s studio and not a dental practice. Our clinicians are experts in the facial anatomy, not just teeth and gums. We have high standards of care and have carried out extensive training in the field to make sure that any clinicians offering services are fully qualified to do so.
General Medical Council guidelines recommend that doctors can delegate anti-wrinkle injections to less qualified staff, but at Portmore you will always be treated personally by Andre, a qualified GP who has carried out non surgical facial aesthetics since 2000.
Facial aesthetic consultations
Everyone has a different skin type so we offer facial aesthetic consultations where we can talk through which treatments would deliver the best results for your skin. These consultations are ideal opportunities for us to come up with a treatment plan that will work best.
To arrange a consultation, simply get in touch.
What treatments are available?
Our qualified facial aesthetics clinician can prescribe anti-wrinkle injections. This treatment can target muscles under the skin and block nerve signals. This stops wrinkles that appear through muscle movement in the face.
The effects of your treatment fade over time and need to be topped up. The treatments do last longer over time as you have it done more often.
