Get a Summer Makeover with Fabulous Facial Rejuvenation!

The summer is almost upon us and many of us are eagerly anticipating parties, weddings and holidays, so what better way to make sure you look your best than treating yourself to facial rejuvenation treatment? Our non-invasive facial treatments are the perfect tonic to tired and dull looking skin, as well as lines and wrinkles. The treatment is so quick and convenient that we’ll have you looking and feeling amazing in perfect time for a summer to remember.

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are commonly used to plump and add volume and vitality to the skin. As you get older, the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin decreases and this can leave your skin looking sunken, tired and old. With fillers, we can replace the lost collagen to add volume to your cheeks and enhance your facial features to bring out your natural beauty and boost your confidence. Fillers also smooth the complexion, reducing the visibility of lines and wrinkles and giving your skin a gorgeous, youthful look.

Filler treatment

Filler treatment is really simple and it only takes around 15-20 minutes, so it can be fitted around your schedule very easily. Before we start treatment, we will have a consultation to take a look at your skin and discuss where you want to treat. We will also explain what will happen when you have filler treatment and answer any questions you have. The actual procedure simply involves using a very thin needle to inject the filler into the areas of the skin you want to treat. After treatment, you will soon be able to see the effects and they should last between 6 and 9 months. After this period of time has elapsed, it is possible to top up the treatment as and when you wish. If you have troublesome lines, look older than you feel or would simply like to give your complexion a boost of radiance, why not call us today and find out about our amazing facial treatments?

Freshen Your Appearance This Spring with Dermal Fillers

Mother Nature takes her toll on us all in the end. The fresh, youthful face is slowly replaced with an older more lined appearance. However this need not be the case and cosmetic surgery doesn’t have to be the only option either.

How do dermal fillers work?

The treatment is very simple, the product is gently injected into the skin around the mouth to give it a plumper more youthful appearance. The lips can also be plumped up to enhance the smile and this treatment is sometimes used during a smile makeover treatment.

What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?

Areas around the mouth, the lips and between the eyebrows are the most commonly treated areas. However this treatment can be used on other areas and this can be discussed prior to treatment.

How long does it take and how quickly will I see results?

This form of treatment is very quick and does not require any pre-tests to be carried out. The treatment will usually take about half an hour to complete and the results are instant.

Is the treatment painful?

This all depends on your personal pain threshold, however most patients report only minimal pain or discomfort during the procedure. When it comes to the lips, an anaesthetic will usually be used as this area is more sensitive.

How long will the treatment last?

This will depend greatly on the patient’s age, skin condition and makeup as well as their overall lifestyle. However the average estimate used is between 6 to 12 months. The lips tend to need to be done more frequently than folds and wrinkles do.

Rejuvenate Your Skin in Time for Spring

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

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

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 procedure

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.

Look and Feel Rejuvenated with Our Fabulous Facial Treatments

For some, the idea of altering one’s appearance seems enticing but going under the knife seems a little too invasive. Hope is not lost for such people as, thanks to dermal fillers, you can look younger without surgery!

What are dermal fillers?

A filler is a substance which, when injected into your skin, restores skin volume and smoothes out lines in the face.

What is so special about their fillers?

We human folk naturally possess a collagen fibre layer which supports our skin. Alas, this fibre layer will slowly deteriorate as we grow older. Restylane products utilise hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance which combats such deterioration of the flesh.

So, how does a typical procedure go?

The actual treatment is pretty speedy and should take somewhere between just a few minutes and half an hour. It should be noted that the procedures length is affected by the area being treated. The surgeon will inject a small quantity of filler into the specified area of using a very fine needle. Dermal fillers can banish wrinkles by producing volume underneath them, thus plumping them out of existence. The curve of your lips can be similarly affected.

How long should I expect the results to last for?

The results should remain noticeable for roughly a year, though they can easily be topped up should you wish to sustain the effect.

Facial treatment… at a dental studio?

Yes: Given the incredibly high standards of cleanliness and hygiene that a dental practice must adhere to, it makes a dental practice the ideal place for such a procedure. You can even have your face treated in tandem with your teeth!

We Offer Facial Rejuvenation Treatments Too!

At Clifton Dental Studio, we like to provide our clients with a comprehensive range of services and are delighted to offer facial rejuvenation treatments in addition to the latest dental innovations. With our non-invasive facial treatments, you can enjoy smoother, younger looking skin without the risks of surgery. We have been providing Botox treatment for over a decade and we also have extensive experience in filler treatment, so you’ll have peace of mind that you’re in the best possible hands.

Our treatments

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

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.

Freshen Up Your Look This Summer With Our Facial Treatments

Facial rejuvenation treatment is a safe, simple and effective way of giving your complexion a healthy, youthful glow this summer. If you’re worrying about wrinkles or want to roll back the clock and look your best for a special summer event, now is the time to call and book a consultation with Dr Neil Gerrard. Dr Gerrard has many years of experience in facial rejuvenation treatment, so you can be sure that you’re in good hands!

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. If you’re eager to inject radiance into your skin this summer, call now and make an appointment.

New Year, New You! Facial Rejuvenation in Bristol

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.

Our treatments

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.

Fantastic Facial Rejuvenation in Weston Super Mare

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

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.
