Dental implants at mydentist, Riverside Commercial Quay, Wandsworth

  • Do you find it difficult to eat your favourite foods, enjoy a juicy steak or bite an apple?
  • Are you embarrassed to smile, or do you suffer from confidence issues because of missing, broken or loose teeth?
  • Are your dentures loose and do you worry about them falling out?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, dental implants could be right for you. Here at mydentist, Riverside Commercial Quay, Wandsworth our experienced dental implant surgeons can help you regain confidence in your smile with a permanent solution for any number of missing teeth.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a fixed solution for missing teeth that are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth. They involve one or more titanium screws being inserted into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Dental crowns are securely attached to these to fill the gaps in your mouth. Because dental implants are securely anchored in your jaw you’ll have the confidence to comfortably eat whatever you like.

The main benefits of dental implants:

  • Replace loose-fitting dentures
  • Maintain bone structure after tooth loss
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Boost your confidence
  • Function and feel just like natural teeth
  • Improve chewing and speaking
  • Long term solution
  • High success rate

Dental implants are a well-established treatment for replacing missing teeth. As they are inserted directly into your jawbone they help prevent bone loss or movement of your remaining teeth, helping to maintain the structure of your face.

Chemical peel

Alpha hydroxyl acids are commonly used for superficial chemical peels. Glycolic acid is one of our most popular treatments and takes 20 minutes to complete. Skin will feel immediately fresh and hydrated after a treatment.

Acid exfolitation removes superficial dead cells, promotes rejuvenation and stimulates collagen in the dermis. This is all scientifically proven and effective to promote skin health.

Skin issues that peels can treat are:

  • Acne
  • Pseudofolliculitis barbae (shaving bumps)
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Dull skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pores and blackheads

Procedure

During the treatment the skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped to allow optimal penetration of the acid. Protective barrier cream is placed around highly sensitive areas like the lips and eye region. The acid is brushed onto the face for up to 5 minutes.

The acid is neutralised thoroughly and cooling towels placed on the face. Hydrating PHA cream and vitamin-enriched serum is massaged into the skin, with a final SPF cream for protection. There is a risk of redness and irritation, but redness and tingling will usually subside after 1-2 hours. Most people will be able to walk out of the clinic fresh faced without any signs of treatment. If stronger acid peels are used there may be more sustained side effects.

Advice

Patients are advised to avoid shaving 24 hours after the procedure and avoid the gym and sauna for 48 hours.

Specific skincare products will be advised. If you use these in conjunction with your chemical peels you will see enhanced results.

Chemical peels improve skin health and using these in combination with facial aesthetic treatments will give you natural optimal results.

Mesotherapy

 

Mesotherapy involves puncturing the skin lightly with microinjections whilst adding a skin boosting product.The technique of administration varies however, the technique focuses on the superficial layers of the skin with minimal bruising and bleeding. The action of the minor trauma of the skin allows for cell signalling, this causes a cascade of cellular stimulation which helps in skin rejuvenation. The fibroblasts cells which produce collagen infiltrate the areas which cause the renewal of collagen in the area.

Benefits of mesotherapy:

  • Reduced Pigmentation
  • Reduced pore size and amount
  • Plumping of the skin
  • Reduced fine lines
  • Improved skin texture
  • Reduced acne scarring
  • Improvement in scar texture
  • More even smooth skin

Dermal fillers

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body. It attracts and binds water to the skin. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, therefore maintaining smoothness, hydration and volume providing an overall moisturising and plumping effect.

Summery of treatment

  • Procedure time
    45 minutes
  • Downtime
    1-2 days of swelling
  • Duration
    6-9 months
  • Anaesthetic

CHEEKS • TEAR TROUGHS • LIPS • CHIN • JAW • NOSE

As your facial contour changes with collagen , elastin and bone depletion, natural hyaluronic acid can be injected into the areas of deficiency.

This process happens with age and dermal fillers can not only replace lost volume but can also stimulate the production of collagen improving the quality of your skin over time. The procedure requires an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and location of blood vessels but also an artistic hand to create a beautiful natural shape.

The type of filler used is a temporary product, they differ in viscosity and can stay in the skin from 3-12 months depending on the appropriate product chosen. Belotero and Juvederm are popular products and create a smooth homogenous effect when injected.

It is important to note that dermal fillers can be used for lips, cheeks, tear troughs, jaw-line, chin, nose augmentation and cheeks and when used in combination with other skin treatments can give the optimal results.

Technique

Blunt ended cannula technique is used for dermal filler placement in most cases. Experienced practitioners use this advanced technique to inject the filler comfortably without the risk of bleeding, pain and also reduces the risk of excessive swelling. There are fewer puncture sites and minimal downtime. An invaluable benefit of this procedure is the significantly reduced risk of damage to any surrounding vessels, nerves and vital structures as the cannula is blunt and bends.

Safety

Emergency drugs are available at all the clinics, also products used to reverse the action of filler. A risk of using filler is occluding blood vessels, it is imperative that the practitioner understands this.

Hyperhidrosis

This is a safe and effective way of treating excessive sweating under the armpits. A muscle relaxing toxin can be administered into the hair follicle region of the arm pit.

Summery of treatment

  • Procedure time
    Less than 20 minutes
  • Downtime
    Minimal downtime. Avoid exercise for 24 hours
  • Duration
    Up to 6 months
  • Anaesthetic
    None required

hyperhidrosis-armpit

Hyperhydrosis targets the areas which stimulate sweat production. There are minimal adverse effect as the injections are very superficial and not near any major vessels or other anatomy. The procedure is very effective in reducing perspiration for up to 6 months. Other areas of the body with excess sweat can also be targeted and treated in the same way.

Lip enhancements

Lip enhancement and augmentation are one of the most popular treatments within facial aesthetics. The lips are the focal point of the face. They are sensual and attractive and can make people look more youthful.

Summery of treatment

  • Procedure time
    Less than 40 minutes
  • Downtime
    Swelling for 2-3 days
  • Duration
    6-9 months
  • Anaesthetic
    Topical anaesthetic or local anaesthetic injections

Arrange a FREE consultation

We can re-shape and contour lips using dermal fillers made of Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body.

We can create fuller upper lips for a more voluptuous smile, remove fine lines from around the mouth, enhance the shape and definition of the lips, create a more prominent cupids bow, even out unsymmetrical lips and improve the profile of the face.

Lip injections with fillers is an art form, an eye for what is beautiful and natural is essential. With delicate instrumentation, lip filler injections can be painless, especially with the aid of local anaesthetic and instruments such as the Midas Touch which reduces pain. Advanced injectors of dermal filler use a cannula technique to administer fillers. This means a small port hole is created near the lip and a blunt ended cannula is used to place dermal filler into the lip. There are significant benefits to this rather than using a sharp needle. Bleeding and bruising are significantly reduced, vessels, nerves and vital structures are protected. Using this cannula technique lip fillers can be done with minimal downtime and very little signs they have taken place.

Toxin injections

Botulinum type A toxin is a purified protein used to temporarily reduce the contraction of muscles causing the overlying skin to wrinkle. The most common area to use this treatment is the upper face region; frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet around the eyes.

Summery of treatment

  • Procedure time
    Less than 20 minutes
  • Downtime
    Less than 30 minutes and usually none
  • Duration
    3-5 months
  • Anaesthetic
    None required

Many patients request this treatment when frown lines become noticeable. The area treated in between the eyebrows is called the glabella. If lightly treated we can create a very natural look, where no-one can notice that treatment has been carried out. The frown line does not get a chance to embed further and over time it can become less obvious. If requested, there can still be natural movement of the face and eyebrows so you look expressive and natural. Crows feet can be treated delicately around the eye region. The lines can be smoothed out well and in some instances where dark circles and lines are below the eye, these can be softened. If eye bags are established, fluid filled toxin injections will not be effective. Smoothing the crows feet too much can make the eye bags look more noticable. At the consultation this will be ascertained.

The forehead muscle can be very active in some people. Lines are effectively softened in this area, it is important however to ensure the correct dosage and balance of toxin is used so we do not get a brow drop, where there is heaviness of the brow or drooping.

With expert knowledge and a precise eye this is preventable in many cases.

The specific placement of toxin injectables in the forehead allows for brows to be lifted to create an arch form, or raise them to open the eye. This is more often known as a brow lift. We can also correct asymmetry where eyebrows are in different positions.

Treatments can be tailored for patients who want a more natural look. This is common for patients who are unsure about having invasive treatments. As these toxin injections are prescription medications and used in expert hands, patients should feel confident in the knowledge they are in the best and safest care possible.

How Does it Work?

The toxin works by blocking the transmission of chemical messengers from the nerve to the muscle. This can be a mild, moderate or severe reduction in movement depending on the individual requirements.

Does it hurt?

A very fine needle is used and this treatment does not require any local anaesthetic. Many clients find it as tolerable as waxing or threading. Patients that are concerned with pain or needles may opt for using a topical anaesthetic cream before the procedure.

Before Treatment

This treatment is not to be undertaken by pregnant or breast feeding women, any person taking anti-coagulatant therapy or sufferers of certain neuromuscular conditons.

Before treatment avoid medication which may increase risk of bruising and limit alcohol intake.

After Treatment

You will be advised to keep the targeted or affected muscles active for an hour and to avoid heat or cold temperatures, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning over for 4-6 hours. The day after treatment, expression should be kept to a minimum and facial treatments should be avoided for 2 weeks.

After treatment it is expected that you will start to see improvement within 2 or 3 days. For some people it may take longer. The full results may be judged at 2-3 weeks. You will be invited to attend a review appointment at 2-3 weeks where the success of the treatment may be assessed and adjusted to your personal treatment plan if necessary.

How long will it last?

Results tend to last 3-5 months. Movement will begin recovering after 8 weeks, frequent treatment intervals of less than 3 months are not recommended. Repeating treatments when movement recovers will deliver optimum results over time.

Preventative Toxin Injections

Use of toxin injections in patients with minimal lines can be beneficial. Using tiny doses of toxin can subtly soften developing lines and wrinkles giving the skin a healthy, radiant look.

Mens skin

Texture and Thickness. Men have thicker, tougher skin caused by testosterone production. This is approximately 25% thicker than women’s. The thicker skin can make the wrinkles under the eyes look more pronounced.

The skin also has a rougher texture, however the androgens cause the skin to be more resistant to ageing. Facial hair which if shaved regularly can cause the skin to be sensitive and can often suffer from shaving bumps.

Hydration

Men have larger pores, increased sweat and lactic production than women. Increased sebum production after puberty accounts for longer lasting acne compared to women. Larger pores and increased sebum production allows for more congestion and blackheads. The increased amount of sweat produced and larger pores mean they are prone to bacterial infection and acne. Men do have more hydrated skin, probably due to the natural humectant effect of sebum and lactic acid.

Sweat production is more excessive in men and this can be localised to under the arm, in the armpit region.

Collagen and sun damage

Men have higher collagen density than women. This essentially means men look younger than women over time. What has been observed by experts is men on the whole do not protect their skin from sun damage. This UV damage negates the benefit of increased collagen.
