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.

If you are looking for facial aesthetics in East Kilbride, in particular, anti-wrinkle injections or fillers, then please don’t hesitate to contact Avondale Dental Practice for a no obligation free consultation.

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. 

Dermal Fillers in East Kilbride

Dermal fillers are a great way to replum skin and lips by smoothing out lines and deep wrinkles caused by aging. The two most common substances used by dentists and cosmetic professionals are Restylane and Juverderm- these both contain hyaluronic acid which is used to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Although both substances are similar, there are few differences between them. For example, the results from Restylane tend to show up after a few days whereas Juverderm will be instant. Another difference is that Restylane tends to only last for 10 months whereas Juverderm will last longer- possibly up to 12 months.

At Avondale Dental Practice, we are able to administer ‘Heart Lips’ which is a specific technique used for the creation of heart-shaped lips. By using precision placed fillers, the lips are naturally shaped, beautifully balanced and proportioned with your face. This particular technique can only be carried out by a medical professional that has been specifically trained by Dr Bob Khanna, and hold a valid licence.

We are pleased to announce that Avondale have been verified and hold this licence. If you’re considering having dermal fillers, it’s important to be aware of the risks and the possible side effects. These can include, but are not limited to:

• Redness, swelling or bruising

• Bleeding from the site of the injection

• Tenderness

More serious side effects are rare, however if you experience anything that indicates you may have an infection then it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

If you want to hear more about dermal fillers or botox at Avondale Dental Practice, then please book in for a no-obligation consultation where one of our qualified dentists will discuss the range of options available costs associated with the treatment.
