Gone are the days when a dental surgery was simple the place to go for a filling or have a tooth removed. Nowadays, even a simple practice or an NHS dental surgery has the techniques and technology to perform at least some manner of simple cosmetic dentistry. Many of the leading surgeries in the country now also offer facial cosmetic work as well, Clifton Dental Studio being one of them.
What else can you get from your dentist?
As well as the excellent dental work – both practical and cosmetic – and sublime customer service, Clifton also offers facial rejuvenation treatment. All the treatments in this area are non-surgical treatments that are becoming more and more popular. The treatments include injectable Botox treatment.
Most people have heard of Botox, with good reason. It is one of the most well known and successful non-surgical facial cosmetic options. It is a fairly simple process in which diluted Botulinum is injected into designated areas. It’s used to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and blocks impulses between the nerves and muscles on the area of the face that it is injected to. One of the main concerns with non-surgical cosmetics is whether it will hurt. Botox uses an exceptionally thin needle which results in very little to no discomfort.
Botox is a chemical that has been greatly studied and observed by many scientists and professionals. As it has become an accepted practice in today’s society, many people are now investing in Botox for a younger looking appearance.
Several people around the world have heard of the Botox injection and its many uses for aesthetic and cosmetic enhancement. It is a well-known anti-aging technique that has been practiced by doctors for many years. Botox can also be used to control hyperactive muscles that impair your smile and also to successfully treat excessive sweating.
If you have wrinkles or a feature about your face that you feel impairs your image, you could always contact a dentist for a Botox consultation, to see what can be done to enhance your facial appearance. Lines around your eyes, creases at the corner of your mouth and frown marks can all be treated quickly and effectively with Botox treatment.
Another reason why people tend to use this procedure is to take years off of their skin in a quick and easy way. Sometimes people may acquire wrinkles that highlight or emphasis their actual age, such as around the eyes and in their smile, affecting the whole shape and contour of their face. Often, first impressions rely on eye contact, gestures, and even facial expressions and cosmetic appeal. This is why the use of Botox is becoming more and more popular.
As well as giving you a beautiful, gleaming smile with our cosmetic, restorative and general dental treatments, we also provide treatments to rejuvenate and revive your skin. Our facial treatments are non-surgical and sessions are usually complete within 30 minutes. If your skin is looking dull and tired, you’re sick of zoning in on wrinkles when you look in the mirror or you want to roll back the years without the risks of surgery, we can help!
Our treatments include Botox and dermal fillers.
Botox is a purified toxin injected into the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles. This treatment is particularly popular for treating issues such as crow’s feet and lines on the forehead. Botox works by limiting muscle contraction in the facial muscles. Treatment is non-invasive, sessions usually last between 10 and 30 minutes and the results last between 3 and 6 months. If you are new to facial treatments, Botox is a good option because the results are only temporary, so you can have treatment without committing to a permanent look or undertaking the risks of surgery.
Dermal fillers are another popular treatment for reducing the visibility of facial lines and they also provide a solution for dull and sunken skin. Fillers add volume and plumpness to the skin to help combat the effects of ageing and decreasing quantities of collagen. Fillers can also add more volume to the lips and treatment can really make a difference to the definition of the facial features. Like Botox, dermal fillers produce temporary results and patients have the choice to top-up their treatment after around 6-9 months.
The beauty of fillers and Botox is the simplicity and speed of the treatment process. The procedure takes less than half an hour, there is very little pain involved and you don’t need to worry about taking time off after treatment. A fine needle is used to inject Botox or filler into the skin. Before treatment, we will discuss the areas you want to treat and explain how the treatment works and what you can expect after treatment.
Pablo Picasso once quipped that “It takes a long time to become young.” Despite all his artistic prowess, it seems that Picasso hadn’t counted on Botox.
What is Botox then?
Botox is a diluted toxin which, when used in appropriate doses, is very safe. Botox essentially makes your facial muscles relax, helping to eliminate wrinkles and make your face look smoother. Botox can also be used to help with other medical conditions, including muscular spasms, motor neuron disease and teeth grinding. Most people tend to associate Botox with its aesthetic usage. Botox is one way of altering your appearance without requiring surgery!
How can it do this?
Facial lines form as a result of underlying muscular action. Botox effectively blocks the impulses from nerves to muscles in the area it is injected in to, thus reducing the appearance of facial lines in these areas.
Botox, in terms of cosmetic treatment, is speedier than superman running a lap around the Earth. In other words: Botox application normally takes 10 minutes! Enhancements should become recognisable after roughly two to three days and should continue to emerge for roughly a month.
Will it hurt?
A fine needle is used to minimise discomfort. Many say it is less painful than waxing or a facial! You may experience some itching or swelling immediately after the injection, but this should subside relatively quickly.
After treatment, lie down and rest for a few hours. Also, avoid rubbing the injected area for three days as this could potentially shift Botox into undesired locations. Avoid alcohol and painkillers for a while too.

We offer Botox and dermal filler treatment. Both are non-surgical anti-ageing treatments proven to rejuvenate the skin without the risks and potential complications associated with surgery.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, preventing muscle contraction. This causes the muscles to relax, resulting in softened wrinkles and the more youthful looking skin. Botox is injected into the targeted areas of the skin using a finely pointed needle in a procedure that usually lasts no longer than 30 minutes. The effects start to become visible after a few days. The effects of Botox are temporary and usually last around three to six months.
Dermal fillers help to create a smoother, brighter complexion by adding volume to the skin to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers help to combat the ageing effects of depleted collagen stores, giving the skin more bounce and vigour and making you look and feel much younger. Fillers also help to enhance the facial features and we can use them to create a fuller lip. Like Botox, filler treatment involves using a fine needle to inject a small amount of filler into certain areas of the skin. The procedure only takes a few minutes and the results last up to nine years. In the case of lip filler treatment, anaesthetic is applied to the lips to prevent pain, as the skin on the lips is very fragile.

About facial rejuvenation treatment
We offer two types of facial rejuvenation treatment, both of which are non-surgical. Botox and dermal fillers can help to reinvigorate the complexion, softening wrinkles and lines and giving your skin a radiant glow.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is used as an effective, non-invasive remedy for lines and facial folds. This targeted treatment softens lines and reduces the visibility of crow’s feet, laughter lines, nasal lines and wrinkles on the forehead to create younger looking skin. It works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, causing them to relax. Botox treatment only takes around 15-30 minutes and the results are temporary, lasting up to six months. During the procedure, Dr Gerrard uses a very fine tipped needle to inject Botox slowly and carefully into the desired areas of the skin. The results will become visible around 24-72 hours later.
Dermal fillers are another effective treatment for lines and wrinkles. However, they can also help to reduce sagging, boost sunken skin and create more definition in the facial features. Fillers add volume to the skin and they can highlight the cheekbones and jaw line to make your features really stand out. We can also inject filler into the lips to add fullness. Like Botox, the procedure for filler treatment is very simple and the results are temporary. Treatment takes just 15-30 minutes and there is minimal pain involved. The results of treatment should last up to nine months.

About facial rejuvenation
Facial rejuvenation treatment is designed to reinvigorate the complexion and tackle the signs of ageing to make you look and feel younger. We offer highly effective, safe, non-invasive anti-ageing treatments, one of our most popular being Botox. We focus on achieving a natural look and we use the latest techniques to produce stunning, pain-free results.
What is Botox?
Botox is an incredibly popular anti-ageing treatment that uses a purified form of toxin known as botulinum toxin type A to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is injected in very small quantities, and treatment is targeted to cover specific areas of the skin, including the forehead, around the eyes and between the mouth and nose. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles. This prevents contraction and causes the muscles to relax, making lines much less noticeable.
Botox treatment is very quick and pain is minimal. Sessions usually last around 15-30 minutes and the results last up to 6 months. A very fine needle is used to inject Botox into zones of the skin. Treatment can be repeated in the future to prolong the effects.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is approved for use in the UK, and Dr Neil Gerrard has extensive experience in using this treatment. His meticulous attention to detail ensures a comfortable treatment process and excellent, natural-looking results. After Botox treatment, there is a small risk of minor bruising and swelling, but this tends to subside very quickly.
If you dream of making 2015 the best year yet, why not start the year with a bang with one of our incredible facial rejuvenation treatments? With our non-surgical treatments, you can start the year looking and feeling great!
What is facial rejuvenation treatment?
Facial rejuvenation treatment is designed to make the skin look younger, brighter and fresher. It is commonly used to address common side-effects of the ageing process including facial lines, wrinkles and skin folds, and can also help to make dull skin look more radiant. We can also use facial rejuvenation treatment to add volume to sunken skin and enhance definition to create a more youthful look, bringing out your best features.
We offer Botox and dermal fillers.
Since Botox was medically approved in 2002, more than a million people have undergone treatment to minimise lines and wrinkles. Dr Neil Gerrard has extensive experience in treating patients using Botox and he aims to create a natural look that makes patients look and feel younger. Botox is injected into specific areas of the skin and it helps to make lines look less visible by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles; this prevents muscle contraction and contributes to smoother looking skin.
Dermal fillers can be used to tackle fine lines and wrinkles and they are also designed to boost volume in the skin to combat the effects of decreased supplies of collagen and elastin, the fibres, which give the skin firmness. Fillers, like Botox, are injected into the skin and they help to make the complexion look brighter and smoother, as well as defining the cheeks and jaw line and enhancing the natural beauty of the face.
What does treatment involve?
Before facial rejuvenation treatment, all patients have a consultation, which enables them to find out more about treatment, ask questions and learn about what the actual procedure entails. One of the best things about facial rejuvenation is the simplicity and convenience of treatment. Dr Gerrard will discuss the areas you want to treat beforehand and then when you come in for your treatment, he will use a very fine needle to gently inject either Botox or filler into the skin. The injections should not be painful and you’ll be able to go home or back to work straight afterwards. The results of treatment are temporary and should last between 3 and 9 months.
At Clifton Dental Studio, we want our patients to feel amazing and we offer the latest non-surgical facial treatments, in addition to a host of dental services. We can carry out facial rejuvenation as part of a smile makeover or as an independent treatment to revitalise the skin and give your complexion a youthful boost.
We have been offering facial rejuvenation treatment for a decade now and our team has a great deal of experience in creating beautiful, natural looks.
Our treatments include Botox and dermal fillers.
Botox is an excellent solution for frown lines, crow’s feet and lines on the forehead and treatment produces a smooth, youthful complexion.
Fillers provide an effective non-surgical remedy for lines around the mouth and nose, folds and wrinkles on the neck. Fillers can also be used to add volume to the skin in response to a lack of collagen, which can make the skin look dull and sunken. We can also use fillers to create a fuller pout.
What does treatment involve?
You often see adverts about having Botox treatment in your lunch break and facial rejuvenation really is as simple as it sounds. Once we have had had a consultation and planned your treatment, the actual treatment session only lasts around 15 minutes and you will not experience any side-effects, so you can get back to work or whatever the rest of the day holds without any worries. We use an ultra-fine needle to inject filler or Botox into the specified areas of the skin and the results become visible shortly after.
These treatments are temporary, non-invasive solutions to common signs of ageing, and offer a safer and more convenient alternative to surgery. The results of filler treatment last up to 9 months, while Botox usually lasts between 3 and 6 months.
