BOTOX AND FILLER
We continue to offer botox and filler treatments as a method of treating fine lines and wrinkles to both the upper and lower half of the face.
We can carry out non surgical facial rejuvenation to treat both static (those that are there all the time) and dynamic (those only present when you make facial expressions) wrinkles. Generally we treat dynamic lines with muscle relaxant medicines, these have the effect of reducing the strenght of the muscle contraction. Static lines are generally treated using anti- wrinkle treatments such as juvederm or restylane.
Some information about Botox and filler Anti-wrinkle treatment :-
Upper face, eye and forehead region (Generally dynamic):
At Eilertsen Dental Care we use Allergan products. The active ingredient in the anti-wrinkle treatment used around your forehead and eyes is called onabotulinumtoxin A. It is one of the world’s most widely researched medicines with approximately 2300 publications in peer reviewed scientific medical journals.
The product is suitable for any individual between 18-65 and over the last 7yrs ~11.8 million cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatments have been recorded in the US alone and they have had a 97% satisfaction rate.
It is a simple, non-surgical procedure whereby the product is injected into the muscles. The nerve impulses which normally make you frown are blocked by the product and this has the effect of temporarily reducing the appearance of the lines around your eyes and forehead.
The results are likely to last around 4 months although there is a variation with each individual.

Lower face, nose and mouth region (Generally static):
In the lower face region we use Juvedem and Restylane filler products. These are smooth gel fillers which are injected around the nose and mouth making the wrinkles in the area less pronounced.
Young skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA which causes your skin to lose structure and volume.
Using a dermal filler is a safe and effective way to replaced the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume, plumping and smoothing away wrinkles and folds.
The product is simple injected into the lines around the mouth and nose or alternatively into the lip area to give the lip a fuller appearance.
Some of our products come infused with local anaesthetic but we can also give you additional anaesthetic to ensure a pain free treatment.
The results of fillers are likely to last around 1 year but again, there will be variation with each individual

Other uses for botox....Ever experienced embarassing wet patches in your underarms?
Botox injections work extremely well to reduce sweating in the armpit area. Similarly as to when the medicine is used in the facial region, these injections are generally very simple, quick, easy and painless.
Like botox used in the face, the results will vary from individual to individual but whether it is a problem always on your mind or you have an important function coming up and definately dont need any extra worries, it may be the perfect treatment to make things run smoothly for you.
Are there any risks??!
Most of the treatments go very well and patients are very pleased with the results however as with any medical treatment it is possible that there are some side effects or problems, these include :-
1. Slight bleeding on injection site immediately post treatment
2. Relaxation of other facial muscles and thus possibiltiy of drooping eyelids/eyebrows
3. The lenght of treatment effects are unpredictable. The effects vary from person to person.
4. Your symptoms may persist after the first course of treatment and you may need top up treatments to get the desired effect.
5.Your wrinkles may be too deep for these gentle non-surgical procedures and it may be that you require more advanced procedures carried out by a plastic surgeon.
If you are interested in these procedures then please dont hestiate to call for a consultation and we can fully discuss your options.
