Our Halifax dentists use minimally invasive cosmetic and dental procedures so that we can help treat a variety of conditions.
The team at Gladstone Dental can provide cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and injectables to address the following skin conditions:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines first start to appear around the eyes and mouth in your thirties and are caused by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin plus years of exposure to the harmful UV rays from the sun.
- Aging Skin
Caused by the natural separation of collagen in your skin, aging skin begins to appear on the face and hands once people reach their forties.
- Heavy or Dropped Eyebrows
Often caused by the eyebrows losing elasticity around the upper eyelid, leaving the eyebrows to appear heavy and dropped.
- Frown Lines
Caused by the natural aging process, the dermis, or the inner layer of the skin, thins and divides cells.
As a result, both the elastin and skin fibres start to loosen, causing the skin to lose elasticity. Smoking and sun damage may also cause frown lines.
- Crow's Feet
Caused by aging, sun contact, smoking, and frequent squinting can promote the formation of crows feet. They often appear around the eyes in your mid-thirties.
- Forehead Wrinkles
Caused by your genes and age, as well as environmental factors such as sun exposure, forehead wrinkles often start to show up in your mid-thirties.
