A New Lease of Life: Anti-Wrinkle Treatments in Glasgow

If you're looking for a quick and affordable way to feel more confident and youthful, the Allander Dental Care facial aesthetics team is here to help.

As we continue to get older, our skin loses its natural elasticity, creating wrinkles and fine lines, ageing and sagging skin. Sun damage and smoking can also have disastrous consequences on the natural vibrancy of our skin and can speed up the ageing process considerably.

A healthy lifestyle, reducing alcohol consumption, staying hydrated and using the right products contribute positively to a healthy and youthful glow. But no matter which and how many products you use, it's impossible to stop the ageing process entirely.

We know venturing into the world of cosmetic treatments can be daunting. It can seem intimidating to decide to undergo this kind of procedure. Our facial aesthetics team are here to guide you through the process and ensure your treatment is stress-free and comfortable. Our facial aesthetic treatments are safe, quick and painless.

If you're looking for a quick and safe treatment that will smoothen and rejuvenate your skin whilst giving you a youthful and, above all else, natural look, you've come to the right place, give us a call!
 

What are injectable treatments?

Injectable treatments are tiny local anti-wrinkle injections that are administered into the facial area. We inject Botulinum Toxin into the appropriate muscles to reduce the unmistakable signs of ageing. Treatable areas include:

  • Lines on the forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Laughter lines
  • Lines at the corners of the mouth
  • And many more.

Toxin blocks transmissions between the nerve endings and the muscles, preventing them from producing tell-tale signs often associated with ageing. Toxin relaxes the muscles, creating a more youthful, well-rested and fresh-faced look.

However, facial aesthetic treatment is not just for ageing skin. Injectable treatments can be used as a preventative measure, helping to slow down signs of ageing for the future. Depending on your genetics, people can begin to develop visible wrinkles as young as their twenties, and most people have started to see the first signs in their 30s.

They can also shape and improve the symmetry of your face, creating overall more balanced features.
 

A professional and comfortable environment at Allander Dental Care

Our facial aesthetic treatments are carried out by Dr Sean Daly, who has had years of experience in anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers and cosmetic dentistry.

You will be invited to a consultation with Dr Daly, who will talk you through the procedure and your desired results. He will get to know and understand your face and administer just the right amount of treatment to create a natural look, improving your confidence while maintaining function. He considers that a face that is rendered immovable is not a desirable result!
 

How safe is the treatment?

As medical professionals, your safety and comfort are of the utmost importance to us. It is at the heart of what we do.

The risks that come with this treatment are minimal. Botulinum Toxin has been used in medical procedures, for sufferers of migraines and excessive sweating, for over half a century. It has been used to achieve wrinkle reduction in the cosmetic industry for over 30 years. 

It is currently the most typical, popular and trusted treatment method and has been tried and tested by millions of happy clients worldwide.
 

Will I see an immediate improvement?

Generally speaking, clients should expect to see visible results at around seven days, with full results visible two weeks after the treatment.
 

How long do they last?

It varies from person to person depending on a few factors, including:

  • Your metabolism
  • Your facial muscle density
  • Your lifestyle.

In general, dramatic results can be achieved usually in 1-2 weeks, and the youthful effects typically last for 3-4 months.
 

Is the treatment painful?

As the procedure is undertaken with very fine needles and is over very quickly, our clients feel minimal pain. You might feel a slight scratch akin to a tiny pinprick. If you are especially sensitive to pain or anxious about needles, we can discuss in your consultation how to make you feel at your most relaxed.
 

Are there any side effects?

After the treatment, clients will begin to feel it working in 1-3 days. You may feel a peculiar, numbing sensation at the treatment sites - this indicates that your muscles are beginning to relax. This is entirely normal.

You might experience mild swelling where the treatment has been administered, and tenderness as the treatment starts to take effect. You also might experience some sensitivity and bruise around the site. In rare cases, clients can suffer minor headaches; however, these clear up within 24 hours.
 

Anti-wrinkle aftercare and advice

Avoid pressure on the area for eight hours after your treatment, and you must stay upright for four hours post-treatment. Avoid make-up for 24 hours, along with vigorous exercise and alcohol. Do not use ibuprofen for 24 to 48 hours after treatment, as this can intensify bruising. Bruising may take up to 10 days to clear.
