  • iSmile Botox Treatments for frown, worry lines and crow's feet

      Lines and Wrinkles around the face can develop over time and cause us to look older than we really feel. The treatment we all know as Botox® (botulinum toxin) has been formally approved for cosmetic use to reduce these lines and exaggerated facial expression lines.

      Botox is used in over 2 million people in the UK every year for wrinkle treatment and has been around for more than 20 years primarily used for medical conditions previously.

      It is safe, effective and quick with a few injections under the skin. Doctor Simon Azimi at Ismile dental practice is highly trained in Botox® wrinkle treatment injection techniques using very fine needles that cause virtually no pain.

      How can Botox® help me? - Botox® is a safe, naturally occurring substance that causes muscle relaxation typically lasting three to four months. In high doses Botox® will weaken muscles substantially, while in lower doses, the relaxation and weakening are subtle. These effects can be harnessed by your cosmetic professional to improve frown lines between the brows, crow's feet at the outer corners of the eyes, horizontal lines in the forehead, and eyebrow height and shape. Botox® can also be used to treat vertical lip lines, down-turn at the lips, and twitching or spasm of the eyelids, cheeks and face.

      How is Botox® administered? - After reviewing your specific concerns and medical history, Dr Simon Azimi will advise you of the best uses for Botox® in your situation. It is injected with a tiny needle directly into the muscle(s) causing wrinkles and spasms to relax. Mildly uncomfortable, the injections take only a few seconds. Effects begin to be visible at two or three days and usually fully evident by one week. Bruising rarely occurs and fades naturally. Improvements in facial appearance and muscle relaxation typically last three to four months.

      What are the risks? - Bruising can occur with any injection. Infection is extremely uncommon as the procedure is done under a strictly controlled environment. Botox® can rarely induce weakness in a nearby muscle, causing asymmetry, or a droopy eyelid or lip. To minimise this risk, your cosmetic professional at iSmile dental practice will recommend that you avoid touching the injected areas for several hours so that the Botox® will bind to the intended muscles only.



  • Dermal Facial Fillers for wrinkles and ageing

      Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment provided by Dr Simon Azimi to achieve a smoother and more youthful skin. The skin loses its natural elasticity and the smooth complexion we tend to take for granted. Your skin's ageing process is determined by your genetics, but the process is always accelerated by a poor diet, pollution, smoking and sun damage.

      How can facial fillers help me? - Commonly used facial fillers include a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid which is already present in your skin. This treatment can be used to improve lip shape and size, creases around the mouth, frown lines between the eyebrows, facial scars, and dark circles below the eyes.

      How are dermal fillers administered? - After reviewing your specific concerns and medical history, Dr Simon Azimi will advise you about the best uses for facial dermal fillers for your situation. Fillers are injected with a tiny needle directly into the area of concern, sometimes with ice, anesthetic cream, or anesthetic block injections to minimise discomfort. Effects are visible immediately, but mild local swelling occurs rapidly and lasts for about 24 hours. Effects last six to twelve months.

      What are the risks? - Bruising infrequently occurs and fades naturally. Mild local swelling occurs very rapidly and lasts for about 24 hours. Facial fillers can also cause asymmetry and rarely a local sensitivity reaction.



  • Juvéderm® Dermal Fillers

      Juvéderm® XC is a facial dermal filler used to smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last between six and twelve months. Juvederm is infused with a mild anaesthetic to improve comfort during treatment.

      How can Juvéderm® help me? - Juvéderm® smoothes out lines and wrinkles, producing an instantly recognisable effect that will leave your face feeling younger and fresher than ever before. Like dermal fillers, Juvéderm® contains a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. As we age, sun light and other factors will reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin causing it to lose colume and structure and giving way to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. By replacing the lost hyaluronic acid with Juvéderm®, your skin will regain back some of its volume and wrinkles will appear smoother than before.

      How is it administered? - After reviewing your specific concerns and medical history, Dr Simon Azimi will advise you about the best uses of Juvéderm® for your situation. Juvéderm® is injected into the skin combined with a local anaesthetic to give your face a natural volume, leaving your skin completely hydrated and youthful. Effects are visible immediately, but mild local swelling occurs rapidly and lasts for about 24 hours. Effects last six to twelve months.

      What are the risks? - Bruising infrequently occurs and fades naturally. Mild local swelling occurs very rapidly and lasts for about 24 hours. Facial fillers can also cause asymmetry and rarely a local sensitivity reaction.



  • Restylane Dermal Fillers

      Are you concerned about skin ageing, fine lines, facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, sunken cheeks, skin depressions and/or acne scars? If yes, you could be a candidate for Restylane the number one selling cosmetic dermal filler in the world.

      Restylane comes from the same family of cosmetic filler products. It is used to replace lost volume and smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds by replacing body’s natural hyaluronic acid, which is lost during the normal ageing process. Products, which are part of the Restylane family are identical to your own hyaluronic acid. Therefore, they can be used safely and effectively, and require no allergy tests in addition to producing natural looking results in just one visit.

      How does Restylane work? - Restylane's hyaluronic acid has been modified to last longer than its body’s natural counterpart. In the human body natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. One of the effects of skin aging is reduced production of hyaluronic acid. Restylane comes in the form of clear gel that is injected in the affected areas (wrinkles, creases, furrows, lips or acne scars). The results are immediate!

      How is it administered? - After reviewing your specific concerns and medical history, Dr Simon Azimi will advise you about the best uses of Restylane® for your situation. Restylane® is injected into the skin to give your face a natural volume. Restylane is used in more superficial treatments as the size is the gel particles are smaller than for example in Perlane®.

      What are the risks? - Some patients experience mild skin reactions after treatment, including slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. These reactions typically last no longer than one or two days after the procedure.



  • Perlane Dermal Fillers

      Perlane like Restylane, is a dermal filler and is a long-lasting gel that once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume and help diminish fine lines. Made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, it is a completely safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane simply supplements the body's age-depleted hyaluronic acid to plump-up the lip or to raise the skin and 'fill in' the particular wrinkle being treated.

      The difference between Restylane and Perlane is the size of the particle (with Perlane containing more hyaluronic acid). This means that Perlane does a better job of filling deep lines while Restylane is used in fine lines or in thin skinned people.

      What are the risks? - Some patients experience mild skin reactions after treatment, including slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. These reactions typically last no longer than one or two days after the procedure.
