Facial Aesthetics near Cardiff

Botox at the dentist? Yes! As healthcare professionals, dentists are medically qualified to administer botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle treatments (which contain the same ingredient used in the Botox brand) and dermal fillers. What’s more, our day job also requires an extensive medical knowledge of facial anatomy and an eye for aesthetics. This puts us in an excellent position to extend our cosmetic skillset from the smile to the whole face – so it’s little wonder that dentists are fast becoming the go-to for anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Botulinum toxin

If you’re looking for anti-wrinkle injections in Dinas Powis, Castle Court Dental Care has the solution. Our experienced facial aesthetics practitioner offers botulinum toxin, which is the same ingredient used in the Botox brand. Injected into key areas of the face, botulinum toxin works by freezing the underlying muscle, which has the effect of smoothing out those deep expression lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Completely safe and backed by decades of scientific research, botulinum toxin is a temporary treatment that will last for up to six months. With repeated treatments, you’ll not only smooth out the areas that currently bother you, but you’ll mitigate against the formation of future lines and wrinkles too.

Dermal fillers

As we age, our skin naturally loses its plump appearance as collagen production starts to decline. Dermal fillers restore that lost volume, giving the complexion a renewed, youthful vitality. At Castle Court Dental Care, we offer dermal fillers that replicate the effects of hyaluronic acid, the chemical that naturally occurs in our bodies and aids the formation of collagen. If you’re looking for dermal fillers near Cardiff, the team at Castle Court Dental Care has the skill to create the subtle changes that make a huge difference – gently plumping the lips and cheeks, filling out the deep lines between the nose and mouth, and also sculpting cheekbones, the nose and the chin.

Botulinum Toxin FAQs

Administration of botulinum toxin causes minimal discomfort, so no anaesthetic is required!

If it’s your first experience having anti-wrinkle treatment, we recommend top-up treatments every three-to-four months. Over time, this interval period can often be extended, as the muscles causing the wrinkles become weaker.

Botulinum toxin is usually administered by area – so while treating an area such as crow’s feet might cost £150, treating both the forehead and brow (two areas) would cost £250. Botulinum toxin can also be used in combination with dermal fillers. We’ll explain the costs fully with you before you undergo treatment and draw up a tailored treatment plan with a full breakdown of prices during your consultation.

You will be fine to return to work after treatment – we often see patients on their lunch break!

Dermal Filler FAQs

We provide numbing cream to alleviate any minor discomfort for all our dermal filler treatments. Additionally, we advise having local anaesthetic for lip procedures, as this makes the lips completely numb and no pain can be felt during the procedure.

Dermal fillers typically last 9-12 months and resorb over time. The rate at which this happens can vary between patients.

Most of our patients return to work the following day after their dermal filler treatment. Occasionally the treated area can look red and slightly swollen, and some patients experience bruising, although this will vary depending on the individual and the procedure. Any mild bruising can be effectively be covered with makeup if required.

It depends on the quantity of dermal fillers required – this can vary a lot between patients and sometimes a course of treatment will be necessary to achieve the results you want. During your consultation at Castle Court Dental, we’ll explain the options and draw up a tailored treatment plan with a full breakdown of prices.
