We can help treat numerous conditions using minimally invasive procedures.
Our team at Airdrie Dental Studio offers cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and injectables to address these skin conditions:
- How long does a Botox treatment take, and what is involved?
Usually, a Botox treatment takes 15-25 minutes and doesn't require anesthesia. A fine needle is used to inject Botox into specific muscles, and topical anesthesia (numbing cream) may be used to make the process as pain-free as possible.
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines first tend to appear around the eyes and mouth in your thirties and are caused by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin combined with years of exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays.
- Aging Skin
Aging skin starts to appear on the face and hands in your forties and is caused by the natural separation of collagen in your skin.
- Heavy or Dropped Eyebrows
The eyebrows lose elasticity around the upper eyelid, which leaves eyebrows appearing heavy and dropped.
- Frown Lines
The inner layer (dermis) of the skin thins and divides cells as the natural aging process occurs. As a result, both elastin and skin fibres loosen, causing the skin to lose elasticity. Sun damage and smoking can also cause frown lines.
- Crow's Feet
Smoking, contact with the sun, aging and frequent squinting can promote formation of crow's feet, which often appear around the eyes in your mid-thirties.
- Forehead Wrinkles
Caused by genes and aging in addition to sun exposure and other environmental factors, forehead wrinkles often appear in your mid-thirties.
