Haymarket Dental wish to provide you with safe, high quality therapies, which are tailored to meet your specific requirements. We offer an extensive range of innovative products and medical aesthetic treatments to address your anti-aging and cosmetic needs.

We believe that the decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure should not be taken lightly and will help you consider all of the options available in an open and relaxed environment. During the consultation we will discuss lifestyle, nutrition and general health and consider the steps, which can help to keep your skin young and vibrant.

We can advise you on how best to take care of your skin, what products do and don’t work, and advise you on skin protection.

24 hour follow up care is available if required.

All consultations and treatments are performed by a Haymarket Dental consultant. A comprehensive range of skin care products is also available to compliment your treatments.
Please call or email us for further information or to arrange a consultation.

Complete discretion is assured.

Muscle relaxants should only be injected by an experienced injector who can make sure that the correct amount is injected in precisely the correct place. In this way the desired result with a natural look can be achieved.

What side effects may I expect following treatment?

Side effects, if they occur, are usually temporary and mild to moderate. As with all prescription medicines, muscle relaxants can cause side effects and your clinician will advise you about these in more detail

Most side effects experienced by patients are short lived and are linked to the injections e.g pain after treatment, redness, swelling etc temporary.

Other side effects such as ptosis (drooping of the upper eyelid), whilst still temporary in nature can be caused by a spread of the injection into the nearby muscles.

Choosing an experienced injector will minimise (but not eliminate) the risk of such side effects. Muscle relaxants contain a specially prepared naturally occurring protein that originates from bacteria.

Although muscle relaxant is a new name, the purified protein it contains has been used in clinical practice under the name BOTOX for more than 10 years. This extensive experience confirms the established safety profile of treatment with muscle relaxants. Other preparations are available to manage facial lines and you should discuss the various treatments and their differences with your clinician so that the effect you get is the one you want.

A minute quantity of BOUCOUTURE is injected into the muscles that cause dynamic line, for example frown lines. The injection temporarily prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscle and, as a result, the muscle relaxes.

As the muscle relaxes, the skin smoothes out.
Treatment can take as little as 10 minutes and most people return to normal activities immediately afterwards.

Everyone knows that regular exercise and a balanced diet are 2 important ways to help stay healthy, feel well and look good. But nothing can stop time passing and, whether we like it
or not, we all grow older and it shows on our faces. Frown lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but they can make you look more tired, angry or older than you really are.

The structure of skin changes with time and it becomes less elastic and flexible.
There are fewer fat cells in the lower layers (the dermis) of the skin and it becomes more transparent whilst the oil and sweat glands, which help keep skin supple, become less active.

Muscles in the face also begin to sag and the skin becomes creased and folded. Older skin is dryer and it renews itself less quickly than younger skin.
All these factors affect how facial skin look. Aging is a natural process and many people want to feel good for their age with a natural look and seek out ways to help them achieve that.

At Haymarket Dental, your integrated clinician will advise you if muscle relaxants are ideal for your needs and will recommend the combination of treatments that will help you to achieve your enhancement objectives.
