Is 'Face & Beauty' really a job for a dentist?

Dentists do teeth, right? Beauty salons are the place to go for Botox ™ and facial fillers aren’t they? Well you might think so, but when you fully consider the facts, we think that you will probably change your mind.At Carisbrook Dental we have been providing specialist facial treatments for over ten-years and both Dr Patel and Dr Idrees are widely acknowledged as leading practitioners. The reason that they are able to provide such a specialist service is that as highly qualified dentists they have each graduated through a gruelling five-year university degree course that provided a profound understanding of the head, neck and facial anatomy. In addition, as part of their daily routine, dentists are highly adept and experienced at delivering the most intricate injections.Even the most experienced beauty therapist and your average GP cannot lay claim to having this in-depth specialist knowledge and experience.So, in a nutshell, that is why ‘Face & Beauty’ really is a job for a dentist.What types of treatments are available at Carisbrook?At Carisbrook Dental we provide a range of treatments, including:Botox™ Widely used to restore the skin’s youthful smoothness by reducing the effects of age-related wrinkles, particularly above the eyebrows, around and between the eyes. It works by stopping the muscles beneath the skin from contracting and it provides a new fuller, firmer and more youthful appearance.Dermatological Fillers Around ten-years or so ago collagen fillers, then commonly used, attracted a great deal of negative publicity for the ‘Trout Pout’ results they sometimes produced.Those bad old days are now long gone and today’s new generation of products, including Restylane, is a naturally occurring protein produced in the laboratory. It does not include any animal derivatives, so there is no risk of allergic reactions.At Carisbrook we routinely administer fillers such as Restylane to plump up the skin and remove the effects of ageing lines around the side of the eyes, between the nose and lips and across the forehead to restore a smoother, more youthful look.Are these products safe?Without doubt the answer is YES … in the right hands. If you are contemplating such treatments then before you commence ask what products will be used and who is going to carry out the procedure, you should also ask what qualifications and experience they have. We can practically guarantee that they will not be as highly qualified or experienced as your dentist.If you would like to know more about the products we use at Carisbrook Dental and the services we provide, then why not take a look at our ‘Face & Beauty’ page.
