How Liverpool Dental Spa’s Non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments can refresh your smile this Christmas

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we pride ourselves on creating stunning smiles, but we also offer incredible non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. If you’re keen to refresh your smile and give your skin a healthy, youthful glow, we’ve got you covered!

Our facial rejuvenation treatments

We offer Botox and dermal fillers as part of our collection of confidence-boosting treatments. Both Botox and dermal fillers are proven to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother, younger-looking skin.

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is used to soften lines by relaxing the facial muscles. It does this by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. Botox has been used for many years and our expert team has a wealth of experience in creating natural results. Botox treatment is commonly used to reduce the visibility of laughter and frown lines and tackle crow’s feet. The treatment process is relatively simple and we use a very fine needle and precision techniques to prevent pain. Typically, treatment takes around 20-30 minutes and the effects will become visible after 24-72 hours. The results of Botox treatment last up to 6 months.

Dermal fillers are another option for those looking for a non-surgical means of rolling back the years. Fillers help to combat a loss of structure and firmness in the skin, which results from depleted collagen stores. We can use filler to soften wrinkles and define the facial features and we can also boost fullness in the lips. Like Botox, this is a temporary solution and the results tend to last up to 9 months. The procedure is simple and involves using a fine needle to inject carefully-controlled amounts of filler into the skin.

If you’re keen to banish wrinkles and make your smile shine this Christmas, why not call us now and find out about more about our fabulous facial treatments?

How Liverpool Dental Spa can revitalise your face with Restylane

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Many of us would love to look and feel younger. If your complexion is in need of some TLC and you’re desperate to look in the mirror and feel confident again, we can help! If wrinkles are getting you down, we have a magical treatment ready and waiting to transform your skin and help you recapture your youth. Allow us to introduce you to Restylane.

What exactly is Restylane and how does it revitalise the skin?

Restylane is a type of dermal filler treatment, which uses a chemical called hyaluronic acid to add plumpness and bounce to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and it helps to combat decreasing stores of collagen. Collagen is the fibre that gives the skin its firmness. As you age and your collagen levels decrease, the skin may sag and this is why lines and wrinkles develop. Dermal fillers are designed to create more fullness in the skin, which softens wrinkles and gives your complexion a youthful look. We can also use Restylane to define the facial features, including the cheekbones, and to enhance the lips.

What does Restylane treatment involve?

Restylane treatment involves a very simple, painless procedure, which usually takes around 30 minutes. Using a very fine needle, our experts will gently inject Restylane into the areas of the face you wish to treat. It is common to have Restylane treatment around the eyes, mouth and forehead. Restylane treatment is not a permanent solution for ageing, but it can help to combat the effects of getting older for several months. Typically, the effects last up to nine months and it is possible to undergo repeat treatment. After treatment, you’ll be able to get back to your normal routine and you should notice a difference after 24-72 hours. Side-effects tend to be very mild and short-lived and may include minor swelling and redness.

If you’re eager to find out more about revitalising Restylane, why not get in touch with us today?

Refresh Your Face: Botox vs Dermal Fillers

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

None of us want to look older than we feel. If your skin is sagging or you can’t stop staring at your laughter lines every time you look in the mirror, maybe it’s time to refresh your face. With our incredible non-invasive facial aesthetic treatments, we can roll back the years without the need for surgery.

We are proud to offer anti-ageing solutions, including Botox and dermal fillers.


Botox is a form of treatment, which reduces the visibility of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. It does this by blocking the transmission of nerve signals to the facial muscles. When the muscles relax, the skin softens, and this causes your complexion to look smother and more youthful. Botox is used to target specific areas of the face, and the aim is to create a natural look. Botox won’t make you look you’re 20 if you’re 50, but it can have an incredibly positive impact on your looks and your confidence if you’re conscious about your skin. Botox is injected into the skin using a very fine needle, and the effects of treatment tend to develop after 24-36 hours. This isn’t a permanent solution, but the results last up to 6 months. After we have planned treatment, the procedure can usually be completed in just 15-30 minutes.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular anti-ageing remedy. They soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the skin. When you get older, the body’s collagen stores become depleted, and this affects the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Fillers help to combat the reduction of collagen, giving your skin more bounce and vibrancy. We can also use fillers to define your best features, such as the jaw line and the cheekbones and even to add fullness to your lips. Like Botox dermal fillers don’t produce permanent results, but the effects should be visible for up to 9 months. Treatment is very simple, and involves using a fine needle to inject filler into targeted sites. Before treatment, you’ll have a consultation to check that you’re a suitable candidate for treatment, find out more about what treatment entails and prepare for the procedure. Filler treatment only takes around 20 minutes.

How to Look Younger This Autumn!

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Autumn is fast approaching and if you’re feeling the post-summer blues coming on, why not treat yourself to an anti-ageing facial treatment to give your skin a healthy glow in time for the new season? With Botox, we are able to reduce the visibility of lines, folds and wrinkles and give your skin a new lease of life!

About Botox

Botox is a non-invasive, non-surgical anti-ageing remedy for wrinkles and lines and it works by blocking the transmission of nerve signals to the muscles in the face. The lack of muscle contraction reduces the prominence of facial lines, giving your skin a lovely, youthful glow and creating a much softer and smother surface. Botox is a toxin, but is used in very small and dilute quantities and when administered by a trained professional, it is considered a safe, effective treatment. The results of Botox treatment are only temporary and this makes it an appealing option for people who want to tackle the signs of ageing without undergoing surgery.

What happens when you have Botox?

One of the reasons Botox is so popular is the convenience of treatment. You often read about ‘lunch break treatments’ and the reality is that a Botox session only lasts around 15-30 minutes, so it can be fitted into a normal daily schedule very easily. Before we undertake any treatment, we have a consultation with the patient first to ensure they understand what treatment entails and check that they are a suitable candidate for treatment. We also plan the procedure in advance to ascertain which areas need attention and we will obviously be happy to answer any questions about how treatment works, what will happen and how you will feel afterwards.

Once the planning session is complete, we can go ahead with treatment. The actual session is very quick and the procedure is very simple. We use a very fine needle to inject a carefully controlled amount of Botox into the areas of the skin we have already pinpointed and that’s it! After treatment, the results will start to become visible and they should last for between three and six months.

Be Delighted by Dermal Fillers

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Some dental surgeries now offer non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedures to compliment the work that has been done on your teeth.

Wrinkles are a normal part of ageing and only a lucky few will manage to get to their fifties without a few creases in their skin. While in the past the only way to deal with these signs of ageing was to have expensive and complicated cosmetic surgery, there are now several different types of non-invasive procedures available which can smooth out your skin in one short session. Many dental surgeries are starting to offer these procedures as a way of completing the work they have carried out on your teeth.

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular and straightforward of these treatments, with a session only lasting around half an hour with no recovery time. The therapist, who has to be a trained nurse or medical professional, injects the filler into the creases and wrinkles in your skin, pumping up the tissue and creating a smoother look. The injections are relatively painless, though if you are nervous you can always ask for some anaesthetic cream to be applied beforehand. The treatment is so simple you can have it on your lunch hour and be back at your desk with younger looking skin and the effects can last for up to nine months.

There are different kinds of dermal fillers on the market, both natural and synthetic, but the most common types use collagen to fill the creases and wrinkles in your skin and restore your skin’s natural glow. Collagen is a substance that occurs naturally in our own skin, making it less likely that patients will suffer any allergic reaction. Often clinics will decide to carry out an allergy test on new customers to make sure they can tolerate the injections before they have several on all the affected areas of their face.

Say Bye Bye to Wrinkles With Anti-Ageing Injections

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Many of us wish we could turn back the clock and bring back that fresh, smooth complexion we enjoyed in our youth. But now you can! With the help of injectable anti-ageing treatments, you can preserve your natural beauty and keep everyone guessing your real age.

What are injectable anti-ageing treatments?

Botox is a very popular anti-ageing skin treatment that smoothes the complexion by preventing muscle contraction and subsequently the development of lines and wrinkles. Botox is actually short for Botulinum toxin type A. Although Botox is a toxin, it is used in such small quantities that it is completely safe when administered by a trained professional.

These popular anti-ageing treatments can smooth out your complexion by temporarily stopping the muscles in your face from contracting, banishing lines and wrinkles. These injections are completely safe in the hands of a trained professional and can be used to treat:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Laughter lines
  • Frown lines on the forehead

About treatment

The procedure is easy! The anti-ageing treatment will be injected into the areas you want to treat using a very fine needle. The injections shouldn’t cause much discomfort and the treatment is usually complete in around half an hour. It’s a wonderful option for anyone who wants to get a gorgeous youthful glow without having invasive surgery.

What happens after treatment?

One of the best things about injectable anti-ageing treatment is that there’s no recovery time, so you can get on with your day as soon as you leave the practice. You’ll be able to see the results almost straight away, but you’ll really start to look younger in a couple of days.

The results of injectable anti-ageing treatments should last for about six months. You’ll be welcome to come back to the practice after this time if you fancy a top-up to preserve your rejuvenated complexion.

Get a Fresh New Summer Look with Botox!

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

If you’ve decided that summer 2016 is going to be your time to shine, look no further than our incredible facial rejuvenation treatments! If you long for beautifully smooth, radiant skin this summer, Botox could be the perfect solution.

What exactly is Botox?

Botox is a diluted form of botulinum toxin type A, which is injected into the skin. It has been used for more than two decades in the UK and is one of the most rapidly growing cosmetic treatments in the world.

Botox is commonly used to soften facial lines and create a more youthful appearance.

How does Botox work?

Botox reduces the visibility of lines and wrinkles by causing the muscles in the face to relax. It does this by reducing muscle contraction, which occurs when nerve signals to the muscles are blocked.

The Botox procedure is very simple. We use a very fine needle to gently inject Botox solution into targeted areas of the skin.

How long do the results last?

The results usually become visible around 2-5 days after treatment and should last between 3 and 6 months. Once the effects start to fade, it is possible to continue treatment to prolong the results.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Many people long for a younger look, especially when the signs of ageing start to become more visible.

Botox offers a non-invasive, convenient and safe solution. With Botox, lines soften and the complexion looks smoother, brighter and more youthful. This treatment can have a really positive impact on confidence as well as appearance. Treatment is convenient as sessions only take around 20 minutes and there is no recovery time required.

Are there any side-effects?

Most people have treatment without any problems at all, but as with all cosmetic procedures, there are risks. It is possible for Botox to cause temporary, localised bruising, redness and swelling. Our experienced Liverpool dental practitioners use the latest techniques teamed with their expertise and skill to produce incredible results with minimal risk.

Dazzle All Summer Long with Dermal Fillers

Friday, May 20th, 2016

We are delighted to offer the latest non-surgical anti-ageing innovations in the heart of Liverpool, including dazzling dermal fillers. If you’re eager to roll back the years and enjoy a brighter, smoother complexion, what are you waiting for? Call us now to book your consultation.

About dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to produce anti-ageing effects. They can be used to add volume to the skin, bring out the facial features and reduce the visibility of fine lines, facial folds and wrinkles.

We use an injectable filler treatment called Restylane, which was developed in Sweden and has since become incredibly popular in the UK and USA. Restylane contains ingredients that are found naturally in the body, such as hyaluronic acid, to boost the skin safely. This product does not contain any animal ingredients and is tried and tested.

Restylane is most commonly used on the forehead, in the folds between the nose and mouth and between the eyes. It can also be used to add plumpness to the lips for a fuller pout.

What does treatment involve?

The simplicity of Restylane treatment makes it very appealing. Treatment sessions are usually complete within 30 minutes and the injections are painless. Unlike surgical treatments, the risk of side-effects is low and recovery time is extremely short. You can return back to work straight after your appointment if you wish to.

In the case of lip treatment, the skin is very fragile, so injections can be painful. For this reason, we numb the lips prior to treatment.

If you’re searching for natural looking-results without the risks or long-term commitment of surgery, Restylane treatment could be just what you’ve been looking for. The procedure is safe and simple and the results are temporary, usually lasting up to nine months. Call now to find out more and see if Restylane treatment is for you.

Say Hello to a Younger-Looking You with Dermal Fillers

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid and are beneficial for facial rejuvenation to reduce anti-ageing effects for a more youthful look.

With ageing, the lines of the face become more ingrained and deeper, causing wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, nose and mouth. Dermal fillers serve to fill in the skin folds so that the face appears wrinkle-free.

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid or Hyaluronan occurs naturally in the body and rejuvenates the skin cells. The body is less likely to reject such cosmetic dermal fillers, which can be injected within facial wrinkles to restore a smooth and firm facial complexion.

Dermal fillers are used as non-surgical alternatives to face and brow lifts, enhancing skin quality for a revitalised appeal. Using a micro-needle, the dermal filler is injected within the skin wrinkles, giving volume so that these facial lines are reduced, planing with the rest of the facial skin. Mouth curves or lips may be plumped using dermal filler for greater attraction.

Does the treatment hurt?

These injections are usually pain-free and require no sedation, however those who are highly sensitive may experience some sensation or discomfort as the dermal filler is injected. Topical anaesthetic may be applied to reduce any discomfort experienced during or after treatment. Dermal filler treatment may be done within five to ten minutes depending on how many treatment sites need filling, and may be repeated every six to twelve months to retain anti-wrinkle results.

The results of dermal filler treatment are evident immediately as the skin responds to rejuvenation care. Dermal fillers enhance natural beauty for improved self-image and a boost of confidence.

As this anti-ageing choice increases in popularity, more people are realising the benefits of dermal fillers, which have been used for years by celebrities and those developing their self-image. If you would like to look younger and smoother in the face, please contact the team at Liverpool Dental Spa today.
