Wrinkles and lines on the face are all part of the natural ageing process. To help us slow down this process there are several non surgical procedures available. We offer various different types of treatment at the practice; each will give your face that younger smoother look.

What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

At the Smile For Life dental clinic in Backwell, Bristol, we use anti-wrinkle injections to safely and efficiently reduce the appearance of wrinkles resulting from facial expressions, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. These injections help create a smoother complexion.

How it is used?

The treatment is given by a sequence of precise injections into the affected areas. A small amount of local anesthesia is used to make the procedure completely comfortable. It takes two or three days for the full effect to be seen. The most common areas to be treated are the forehead, ‘crows’ feet around the eyes and the frown lines between the eyebrows. The upper half of the face.

How many treatments are needed?

Four treatments are usually given in the first year at three monthly intervals.

Frequently Asked Questions

When performed by qualified and experienced practitioners, Facial Aesthetics procedures are generally safe. It’s essential to choose a registered and reputable clinic or practitioner to minimize risks and achieve your desired results.

Dermal Fillers

What is it?

Dermal fillers are gels made from the natural substance hylauronan. This is injected just beneath the skin surface to replace the collagen and hyaluronan support layer which has deteriorated. It instantly supports your skin, smoothes wrinkles and scars, corrects skin contour deficiencies and improves facial lines typically found between the eyes and around the mouth area.

How is it used?

A few simple injections can help fill in and smooth away lines and other skin deficiencies. It is most commonly used in the lower half of the face to enhance and emphasize the borders of the lips, contour your skin and cheeks and to recreate a youthful smile. As with the line reducing injections a small amount of local anesthetic is used to ensure complete comfort during the procedure. The effect is instant with only a small amount of redness of the skin which usually wears off within a couple of hours.
