Aesthetics

Paardevlei Smile Dental is here to help you feel confident about your appearance by providing facial cosmetic treatments, which may continue improving the appearance of the face and mouth.

Most of us dream of having younger looking, healthier, smoother, more rejuvenated skin don't we? You will be amazed at the difference simple facial aesthetics can make to your overall appearance and your confidence.

Here are just a few treatments we offer at our state-of-the-art dental facility:

Wrinkle reduction with Botox

We can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face by using botulinum toxins. These are used to soften specific muscles of the face, to help address the depth of wrinkles and folds on the face and to reduce continued development of the signs of aging. The aim is not to make your face appear 'frozen' or 'stiff', but simply natural and rejuvenated.

Lip Augmentation

Our dentists can help by providing lip augmentation, for fuller, more defined lips. This is done with special hyaluronic acid dermal fillers fabricated for use in these delicate areas.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers continue to grow in popularity as more people seek ways to reduce the signs of aging. They are also known as liquid facelifts because they provide many of the effects of a surgical facelift at lower cost and without the pain and recovery period. Additionally, because the purpose of fillers is to return the skin to its youthful fullness, it provides more natural looking results than a surgical facelift.

Over time, gravity, sun, age, hormonal changes, lifestyle choices and environmental toxins take their toll on the skin. Lines develop on the forehead, wrinkles forms around the mouth, crow's feet develop around the eyes, the lips thin and wilt and the cheeks become sunken. The skin gradually loses its hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen, which is the support structure for the skin.

Fillers made of hyaluronic acid can now be used to increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that maintains skin hydration and volume. It can absorb up to 1 000 times its weight in water, and binds with the elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to these fibres.

When hyaluronic acid fillers are applied, volume is added to the skin and face and brings moisture to the surface, giving the area a full, fresh, and supple look. The results of the injections can last from up to four months to a year. Hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely safe, with very little that can go wrong as it is a naturally occurring molecule.

We have achieved superb results by using fillers in conjunction with Botox. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the wrinkles and folds, and hyaluronic acid fillers plump and smooth the treated areas. This results in a relaxed, youthful, and rejuvenated look, and typically the outcome will last longer than any treatment used independently. They can be used to effectively reduce lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and hands.
