As we get older, this structural support under our skin gets weaker. There is a loss of the healthy fat under the skin and it sags downwards to create unwanted bulges and lines (“folds”). These changes in the face are often obvious but other treatable areas such as the neck and hands are often a tell tale sign of this.
Dermal fillers are used to replace this lost volume back under the skin to redefine important structures and reduce unwanted wrinkles and folds. This process requires great skill and planning, something which we pride ourselves on.
My wife Linda introduced me to Adams Dental and since that day I’ve never been afraid to visit the dentist. I was terrified of the dentist from childhood as I’m sure millions of people are but on my first visit they took all the fear away. Adams Dental treat you like you’re part of their family. My smile is a major part of my job and Alex made it easy for me to smile. I’ve recommended Adams Dental to many of my friends and now they’re recommending their friends too.
The fact that we have been patients of Alex Adams for 27 years should speak volumes for the respect we have for him. His easy ‘chair’ manner, the warmth of his personality and the patience he has in applying his dentistry skills all help to make our visits a more than pleasant one.
Alex and his team of dedicated professionals have looked after my family and myself for over 10 years. Their warm approach and advice instil confidence and their exemplary work helps you start any type of day with a winning smile!
We only use high quality fillers containing hyaluronic acid; this is a key natural component already in our skin, which decreases as we age.
The effects can be seen almost immediately. A follow up appointment will be kept to ensure that treatment has been successful.
There is no downtime on the day and you can go home or even back to work after treatment. There may some swelling after the procedure but this is temporary and we will give you advice on how to minimise this.
Before your treatment, we will use techniques to temporarily numb the skin where you will have your treatments. This can include the lips. We keep our patients comfortable and these procedures are tolerated well.
