Facial Consultation

At Krystal Dental we offer BOTOX and DERMAL FILLERS.
Book in for a free 15 minute face analysis and consultation. Dr Guna Lagzda will talk to you about the causes of any changes you have seen in your face, whether it be skin creases, wrinkles, pigmentation changes, hollow areas, loss of support and structure to your face or maybe particular scars or marks that you may be concerned about. Some methods are more appropriate for some people than others. Dr Guna Lagzda will inform you of treatment options, which options would be most suited to your condition and a treatment plan will be created for your individual needs.
The different treatment types are explained in detail under ‘WRINKLE RELAXING INJECTIONS’ and ‘DERMAL FILLERS’ and prices can be found on the PRICE PAGE
What is BOTOX?
Botox was the first FDA approved prescription product licensed to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crows feet.
It is a purified protein produced by Clostridium Botulinum. Botox is also used in other areas of medicine to treat a number of different medical conditions.
How does BOTOX work?
Botox temporarily blocks the transmission of signals from the nerves which normally tell the muscles to contract.
It relaxes underlying muscles and as a result causes the skin to soften existing fixed lines and wrinkles and also helps prevent static lines from becoming established.
Botox can also be used off license to change the balance between facial muscle groups to create a lift, also known as the non-surgical or chemical brow lift.
What is BOTOX for?
Botox can be used for a number of purposes, some of which are off license:
  • To soften frown and forehead lines
  • To soften crows feet lines surrounding the eyes
  • To create an eyebrow lift
  • To improve a gummy smile
  • To improve a square jaw and teeth grinding
  • To sharpen jaw line and reduce neck bands
  • To improve bunny lines on the nose
  • To improve smokers lines around the mouth
  • To improve a wrinkly chin
How is the Botox procedure done?
The facial muscle positions, movement and effects are first examined and marked out for accuracy of Botox placement. The Botox is then administered into the marked areas using a very short super fine needle.
Local anaesthetic is not necessary as discomfort is minimal with the technique used but if you are concerned about discomfort ice or topical numbing cream could be used.
There is minimal downtime and you can continue with your day or go back to work as normal.
How long do I need to wait to see results?
It normally takes 3 to 5 days to start seeing the results, although it can be as soon as 24 to 48 hours after.
At 2 weeks full results can normally be observed. The results last at least 3 months and with continual use longer term benefits of wrinkle softening can be seen.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Most types of Dermal Fillers are composed of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within the skin and it absorbs water giving volume, shape, hydration and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid has minimal risk of reactions and is more readily accepted by the body than other silicone or collagen fillers.
At Krystal Dental we only use the top brands which have undergone many years of testing and research.
We mainly work with the JUVÉDERM® VYCROSS range for the outstanding properties that it holds.
What are Dermal Fillers for?
Dermal fillers can be used to treat different areas of the face, including the lips, chin, jaw, cheeks, forehead and nose, and are ideal for dealing with specific issues such as loss of volume, deep lines, tear troughs, and jowls.
How is the Dermal Fillers procedure done?
For certain Dermal Filler procedures topical anaesthetic is first applied and left to numb the skin for 20-30 minutes.
A numbing injection can be given to numb the area further although this is rarely required.
The dermal filler is then injected into the area required using a very fine needle.
How long do I need to wait to see results?
Results can be seen immediately after dermal filler treatments and generally last up to 12 months or longer.
