Wrinkle removal from lips and marionette lines

In addition to our general and cosmetic dental services, Bingham Dental Practice in Nottingham also offers a number of non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments using dermal filler injections. This includes lip enhancement and reducing the appearance of marionette lines.

It is a fact of life that as we get older, the folds in our faces become deeper. Generally, the folds and wrinkles around and between the eyes and on the forehead can be treated effectively by using the Botulinum toxin, but those around the mouth, cheeks and nose are better treated using a dermal filler.

Over time, the structure of the skin deteriorates due to age, sun, wind, cold and pollution. It is the dermis layer of the skin that loses its collagen fibres, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural non-animal product meaning that there is no need for allergy testing. Dermal fillers work by integrating into the dermis and replenishing your own natural hyaluronic acid.

This treatment is especially effective for lip enhancements. Dermal fillers can be used to replace lost volume in your lips or to redefine your lip contours by injecting the fillers along the line between your lips and the adjacent normal skin. It is also possible to improve the ‘Cupid’s Bow’ appearance of your lips by using dermal fillers in the fold that extends up towards the nose.

Marionette lines are the lines that extend from the outer corners of each side of the nose all the way down to the chin. They can give your face a downcast, disappointed appearance, hence their other name, “disappointment lines”. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth and reduce the appearance of these deep lines, instantly rejuvenating your face.

The results can be seen immediately but there may be some bruising and swelling in the area for two or three days. The best results are seen after seven to ten days.
