Smile enhancements such as tooth whitening, veneers and dental implants can take years off the way you look, but they donít always address some of the other signs of ageing such as frown lines and crows feet.

At Byways Dental Practice, we offer Restylane and Perlane facial rejuvenation treatments, which will compliment your smile beautifully.

Restylane and Perlane are essentially the same product - the only difference is in the strength, with Perlane being more suited to deeper lines.

They are both made of a natural material called hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our skin and helps it to counter the effects of time, wind and weather.

In Restylane and Perlane, the stablised hyaluronic acid is in the form of a clear gel, which binds with the water in your skin to lift it and make it firmer, smoothing wrinkles and folds or giving additional contours to your face. It is in effect a natural beauty lift.

The procedure is fast and effective, and requires no pre-testing. Results usually last for 8-12 months, depending on a range for factors including your age, lifestyle and the structure of your skin.

As totally non-animal products, there is no risk of transmitting disease or of causing allergic reaction in patients who are sensitive to common foods such as beef, chicken and eggs.

Restylane

This is used for wrinkle correction and to enhancing your lips to make them appear fuller and less lined around the edges. It can also be used to correct thin superficial lines such as those around the mouth, on the forehead and smile lines.

Perlane

Perlane is used for shaping facial contours such as the cheeks and chin, to correct deep folds and to boost the volume of your lips.

“I wanted to be sure that my facial rejuvenation treatment was done properly, by someone who really knew what they were doing, which is why I came to Byways. I am delighted with the effect the treatment has had Ė many of my friends have commented on how well I look now.”
