Mother’s Day is coming up. This is your day. How are you going to feel? Are you going to feel bursting with youth and exuberance and confidence? Or are you going to feel a bit worn out and old before your time?
At The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry in Glasgow, we’d like to suggest that you go for the former, and we have a few great treatments up our sleeves to help you make the most of yourself and to boost your confidence levels for Mother’s Day and the months that follow.
When it comes to facial rejuvenation techniques, we offer 2 firm favourites to smooth away wrinkles and plump out hollows.
Good old Botox. It’s been around for a long time now and it’s one of the nation’s trusted techniques for reducing those signs of ageing we’d all like to go away, please. Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles to contract. People find it works really well on muscles that are habitually contracted, such as crow’s feet around the eyes, worry lines on the forehead and frown lines between the brows. It takes about a week for the full effects to appear, so if you want to look your best for Mother’s Day, don’t leave getting Botox treatments until the last minute. You can expect your treatment to last up to 4 months though.
Brits are also having a love affair with dermal fillers. These are injections of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound produced by the body to lock in moisture in cells. We produce less and less of it as we age, which is one reason why facial skin can start to look papery. We use dermal fillers to plump out hollows and wrinkles and it works really well on the lower third of the face, on the lines around the mouth and also to plump out the lips. You can even use it on the backs of your hands to plump out wrinkles there. Dermal fillers will show up immediately after treatment, but they too can take a few days for their full effects to become apparent.
