Facial Aesthetics in East Kilbride

Facial Aesthetics East Kilbride

Facial aesthetics are best described as a range of non-surgical treatments such as filler and botox that are available at our practice in East Kilbride.

If you’re deliberating whether facial aesthetics are for you, we’ve noted below a few reasons why you may benefit from them.

Anti-wrinkle injections  

Anti -wrinkle injections or otherwise known as ‘botox’ are a type of facial aesthetic that involves a purified protein called botulinum toxin being injected into the muscle of your face so that it becomes more relaxed and therefore appears smoother.

It is normally used to even out the lines and wrinkles that are on your forehead or around your eyes. After your treatment, it will normally take 2-3 days for it to start to work, and the results will last for 3-4 months.

Anti-wrinkle injections are ideal for anyone who is self-conscious about deep lines on their face and wish for a smoother, more youthful appearance.


Fillers or ‘dermal fillers’ are another type of facial aesthetic that involve using products such as restylane and juverderm to reduce the signs of aging by smoothing lines and deep wrinkles and adding volume to areas of your face- most commonly your cheeks or lips.

Before getting fillers, you need to make sure you know which area you need (or want) them. Speaking to a qualified, friendly practitioner at Avondale Dental Practice will help.

Fillers are not permanent and usually last between 6 and 18 months however this is dependent on what type of filler has been used and where it has been injected.

Facial Aesthetics in East Kilbride

Avondale Dental Practice has been carrying out discreet facial aesthetic procedures in East Kilbride since 2005.  Botox, Azzalure, Dysport, Restylane and Juverderm are some of the products we use to achieve a fresh natural you.

Botox, Azzalure and Dysport are used for their muscle-relaxing properties. They are brand names for botulinum toxin, which reduces the ability of the muscles to contract. This in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines, frown lines and lines around the eye area. We have also successfully used these as a treatment for migraines; and for tooth-clenching and grinding. 

Restylane and Juverderm are products which are commonly referred to as “fillers”. These are formulations of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. They are used to reduce signs of aging, by soothing lines and deep wrinkles to create a natural fresh-faced look. 

As we age our lips lose their natural fullness. This can be effectively restored with these hyaluronic acid fillers, giving a natural young appearance.

A Dentist qualified in Cosmetic Treatments is the ideal professional to perform these procedures. Avondale have been providing this service for over ten years. 

For anyone interested in cosmetic treatments, we start with a free no-obligation consultation.  This includes a full medical history, and an evaluation to find out your concerns and goals. 

At your consultation a full explanation of what the treatment involves and which procedures are recommended for you; together with quotes for the costs of the treatments. We will then organise a treatment appointment for you. 

This will be followed by a review appointment approximately two weeks later to evaluate the effects of the treatment. “Top-ups” may be done at this appointment to ensure a uniform and beautiful result.  From our extensive experience the effects of Botox and Azzalure last longer after a couple of treatments. 

Are you looking for Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Overtime lines may develop on your face because of many factors, such as ageing, sun exposure, dehydration, smoking, gravity and poor nutrition. They are even created by your own facial expressions due to laughing and smiling. The purpose of anti-wrinkle injections or ‘Botox’ is to offer you non-surgical and minimally invasive solutions to help you improve and maintain the appearance of your skin.

At Avondale Dental Practice, we use Botulinum Toxin (Botox) which is injected into the skin to relax the muscles in your face and to smooth out lines and wrinkles. These are most common around the eyes (crow’s feet) and on the forehead where you frown. It’s important to bear in mind that the results are not permanent and will probably last 3-4 months.

If you have decided that Botox is a procedure that you would like to go ahead with, then you will be asked to come to the surgery and your face will be cleaned. The Botulinum Toxin will then be injected into the muscles in your face using a very fine needle. You may need injections in different places, depending on the area being treated and how large it is. This procedure only takes about 10 minutes and shouldn’t be too uncomfortable. You won’t see a change straight away and it may take 2-3 weeks to see the full effect. One of our Dentists will advise you not to rub your face for 3 days and to avoid vigorous exercise, sunbathing and the sauna for 2 days after the procedure.
