Aesthetic Treatments

Aesthetic treatments are simple, affordable non-surgical anti-aging procedures for men and women to help rejuvenate, enhance and restore the youthful definition of the face and body. They are currently offered at Stratford Dental by Dr Shilpa Patel who has been trained in the latest techniques of facial rejuvenation. Following an in depth consultation, a bespoke treatment plan is drawn up specifically tailored to your individual aesthetic needs and requirements..


And the treatments can come under the introduction as follows:

Muscle Relaxing Injections

Muscle relaxing treatments are carried out using Botulinum Toxin commonly known as Botox® to help create a fresher more youthful appearance without surgery

Facial lines are caused by the repeated use of the underlying facial muscles, which over time results in a permanent crease or wrinkle.
Where Botox® is injected it reduces the facial movements which result in wrinkling. This gives a smoother more rested appearance to the face and a fresher more youthful look. 

Treatment with Botox® is most commonly carried out on the upper facial areas such as the horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows and crows feet (or laughter lines). Botox® can also be used to easily treat hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) in areas like armpits and palms of hands.

The procedure:
The smallest needles are used and the medicine does not sting as much as a local anaesthetic injection. It is a bit like having your eye brows plucked.

How long will the results last? 
You should start to see the effects over 3- 14 days following the treatment, the main effect is visible at about 7 days. The effect after the initial injection lasts between 3- 5 months for most patients. You will notice a gradual fading of the effect and at this stage can return for a repeat treatment, perhaps 2 -3 times a year if you like the effect.

Regular treatments prevent the skin from creasing and that can keep new wrinkles from forming as well as smoothing out the existing ones. Clinical trials have shown that over time the duration of the effect increases, resulting in less treatments being needed to maintain the result.

How long do I need to take off work?
As soon as your treatment is over you can resume normal activities. There are some precautions and you will be advised about these; they include not massaging the area treated for 12 hours and keeping your head upright for 4 hours after injection. No yoga classes or shoe shopping!

As a quick and effective treatment, with excellent results and virtually no down time it is perfect for those patients who have signs of facial ageing but would prefer not to have surgical intervention. 


Is it safe? 
Botox® injections
 are currently the most popular cosmetic procedure with over 1.6 m injections being performed last year. The cosmetic uses of Botox® were discovered by chance in the late 1980s. It has been safely and effectively used in medicine for over 30 years.

I do not want  a face without expression
We aim for a subtle look that makes you look fresher and  keeps friends and family guessing.
For best facial rejuvenation Botox® treatment is combined with dermal fillers to eliminate fine lines and restore volume lost due to ageing.”

Dermal Fillers

Among the signs of an aging face is the loss of volume on the cheeks, hollows along the sides of the face and deep folds forming along the sides the mouth.
There is a non surgical solution to correct these and to restore fullness to cheeks and lips.
Injectable fillers may be used alone or together with procedures including Botox. When injected beneath the skin these fillers plump up creased wrinkles and the folds of the skin. 

The Procedure
The product is injected into the skin with a very fine needle and patients are injected with either a dental injection of local anaesthetic or a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin before treatment. 

How long will the results last? 
The result from the treatment is immediate and will last about 6 months. 

How long do I need to take off work? 
There is little down time and you may experience a little redness and swelling which can be camouflaged with make- up or you may want to take the day to recover. 

Is it safe? 
Restylane is a form of injectable hyaluronic acid specially formulated for facial contouring. Hyaluronic acid is a natural, biocompatible substance which replaces lost volume and rehydrates skin tissue by absorbing 1,000 times its weight in water. 
Restylane is not derived from animals and this reduces the chance of any allergic  reaction.
