As we progress through the early years of our lives from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood we become smarter and stronger each day. However, once we hit our twenties the ageing process starts to kick in, bringing with it many signs on our face and body that show the world that we are getting old. In this post we will take a brief look at the process of skin aging, and how facial fillers can help you to fight them.
The first signs of ageing tend to appear on our face around about our early 30s. This is the age when our skin starts to lose its ability to produce collagen and elastin, which are the things it needs to help it stay firm and springy. Once the amount of collagen and elastin starts to reduce, then repeated facial movements such as frowning and laughing will begin to leave marks on the face such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Our facial features can also begin to look more angular which tends to make us appear more tired and sad. Our previous lifestyle choices, such as sunbathing, also come back to haunt us at this age as pigmentation can start to show up on our skin.
In our 40s, all of these issues can start to intensify, with the skin becoming drier, and therefore lines and wrinkles appearing more pronounced. Another issue is the loss of subcutaneous fat, which again decreases the amount of elasticity in our faces and can cause our skin to sag and can dramatically change our appearance.
Unfortunately, the ageing process is a natural process and it is virtually impossible to prevent it or stop it. However, there is good news in that we can slow it down and potentially reduce the impact on our face and body.
Firstly, we cannot emphasize how important diet and exercise are. Making sure your lifestyle is as healthy as possible, by eating the right things and incorporating exercise into your day is one of the ‘easiest’ ways to keep your skin looking as young as possible as well as reducing the impact of ageing on your skin.
Of course, there are also several treatments that Cheadle Facial Aesthetics offers, including cosmetic fillers, that can all help to reduce the impact of ageing on your skin. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles, while lip injections can enhance lip volume and shape. We also offer Botox, which is another treatment we can use to smooth forehead wrinkles and other lines on the face.
We offer a wide range of treatments here, that will help to keep you looking fresher and younger in a safe and non-surgical manner. If you are interested in any of our treatments, including an eyebrow lift, then please contact us today for a free consultation on 0161 485 7376.
There will probably come a time in your life when you look in the mirror and decide that you might need a little touch up here and there. But, you may be wondering if botox Alderley Edge is the right answer for you. We quite often get asked lots of questions about our procedures, and the most common one is what is botox? If you have been reading our other blogs, you will know that botox is a neurotoxin that is injected into the face to ease the signs of wrinkles – and it is one of the most common non-surgical facial treatments offered in the UK.
Here are some of the other common questions we get asked:
Botox is best used as a preventative measure once you have seen the sign of wrinkles starting to prevent them from developing further. Therefore, the best candidate for botox is someone who only has a small number of lines on their face and is wanting to prevent more. It is also a great option for someone who doesn’t want more invasive surgery. If your wrinkles are already deep-set then you may be better with dermal fillers Alderley edge to help plump them up and ease them slightly.
Botox is probably best avoided by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are taking any medication, dietary supplements or have an illness such as asthma or diabetes then you need to let your aesthetician know as well. If you have the treatment and you have not revealed any illness that you have, then you may suffer from unpleasant side effects – it is always best to be open and honest and then we can give you the best advice.
Botox is a non-invasive surgery and so it usually doesn’t require any serious recovery time. Your face may swell slightly or show small signs of bruising but these will probably go down within a few hours. It is probably best to stay away from alcohol for a couple of days before your injection and to aid the healing process you should avoid both aspirin and ibuprofen for a week.
You probably won’t be able to see an immediate effect no, but the more injections you have the better the results will be. So, the second time you have the injections you will see results more quickly, and so on.
As you can probably imagine, it is different for every person, but in general, we would expect botox to last between 3 and 6 months. Remember, the more treatments you have, the better the results as Botox is a long-term strategy to help prevent the appearance of wrinkles by training the muscles not to move in a way which forms lines.

Non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments are rapidly growing in popularity the world over – at the detriment of surgical procedures actually. More and more people are plumping for minimally invasive treatments such as the dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments that are popular at facial aesthetics Stockport – but why are they so popular?
Facial aesthetics treatments tend to be quicker and simpler than traditional surgical procedures, not permanent, and therefore a lot cheaper. This means that people who would normally have opted for a plastic surgery solution, are now going for the quicker and easier option instead.
There are lots of celebrities living in the local area who regularly use facial aesthetics hale and this widespread acceptance has made it more socially acceptable for people to admit that they have had things ‘done.’ A great example of a popular celebrity who regularly has treatments is Kyle Jenner who regularly talks about the lip fillers she has, and how much more confident it makes her feel.
There are lots of new treatments being introduced to the market on a daily basis, and we are keeping a close eye on them to see which ones would be interesting to our clients and that we can easily be trained in.
Although an anti-wrinkle treatment may not seem like it is offering you a health benefit, there are actual symptoms that can be eased with the use of an anti-wrinkle treatment. For example, the same treatment for wrinkles can actually be used to cure excessive sweating if injected into your armpit and some migraine suffers have reported an easing in their symptoms after an anti-wrinkle injection (but this won’t work for everyone).
Many people feel OK about telling their friends they have had dermal fillers or wrinkle treatments when their friends tell them how great they look, and this is great advertising for the sort of results that facial aesthetics can achieve! Sometimes we even have groups of friends who come in for treatments together and make a bit of an afternoon of it.
As the majority of facial aesthetic treatments are not permanent, the injections will need topping up every few months in order to achieve the same effect. The length of time treatments last varies from 3 to 12 months, but it does mean that patients will come back regularly to have top-ups.
If you are interested in facial aesthetics Wilmslow and want to find out more about why they are so popular, why not make an appointment today? You can call us to request a free consultation on 0161 485 7376.

Quite simply, it’s a great way to look and feel younger without having to go under the knife. As we age, tiny wrinkles, frown lines, smokers lines, glabellar areas, forehead and crow’s feet start to develop. Overtime it makes us look older. Treatments such as Botox are fast acting and can be carried out in as little as one hour, making them a convenient treatment choice.
Botox treatment is derived from a substance known as clostridium botulinum. This is a natural substance found present in environments such as forests, soils, and even in the sediment of lakes. When tiny amounts are injected into the skin using a fine needle it prevents nerve cell signals from reaching the muscles. Without instructions to contract, the muscles surrounding the wrinkles can’t tense up. As a result tell-tale frown lines and wrinkles are softened. In many cases they vanish altogether. Although patients will see a difference immediately, most Botox Stockport or Botox Cheadle treatments take around 72 hours to show full improvement.
If you’re fed up with your wrinkles and are considering Botox in Wilmslow or Botox in Manchester then come and talk to Church Road Dental and Cosmetics. Botox treatment is an affordable and easy way to restore your youthful look, so contact us today on 0161 486 0743.
Unlike Botox which aims to reduce or eradicate facial expression or movement lines, dermal fillers treat the static facial lines formed during the natural ageing process. When facial fillers are used in conjunction with Botox, the results can produce a remarkably younger-looking face. Cosmetic fillers are easy to apply, are fast acting, and have the ability to plump up the area to the point where a fold, depression, or wrinkle disappears. If you’re looking to banish the signs of facial ageing fast, then you’re in safe and capable hands at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics.
As skin ages it loses the natural collagen that helps to support and shape our facial features. The result is deepened lines and wrinkles. In addition exposure to the sun, air pollution, smoking, and even stress can all be major contributing factors of early ageing. Dermal fillers work by replacing the lost collagen, thus making the skin tighter and filling out any tell-tale deep lines and wrinkles. By reversing the natural ageing process this quick procedure gives the patient an instantly younger appearance, which in turn helps to boost confidence.
In the comfort of our modern practice our expert technician will inject tiny amounts of hyaluronic gel underneath the skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in the body – particularly the skin tissue. When injected into the facial area it can help to:
There are a wide variety of Hyaluronic dermal fillers in use including products such as Juvederm, Prevelle Silk, Elevesse, and Restylane. All of these are safe to use and are similar in that they contain a form of biodegradable, non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid.
The process of cosmetic fillers takes around 30 minutes to complete and unlike Botox which only lasts a few months, results can last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years depending upon where it’s applied. Because our practice is well situated, if you’re looking for dermal fillers in Stockport or dermal fillers Wilmslow, it’s good to know that we’re only minutes away.
Dermal fillers really can banish wrinkles and static lines and provide a super-fast, non-surgical solution to the ageing problem. To find out more about facial fillers or if you’d like to book an appointment, then contact us on 0161 486 0743 today.
As we age we may experience a mild to moderate heaviness in the brow area. This causes sagging eye brows. One answer of course is cosmetic surgery in the form of a brow lift, but what if you don’t want to undergo such an invasive procedure? You might want to consider an eyebrow lift using Botox. Also known as the ‘brow arch’ procedure, carefully placed injections cause the brow to elevate, improving the positioning of the eyebrows and enhancing the eyes.
Carefully controlled amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the muscles above the eye area that pull the brows down. When this happens it relaxes them. As it does so the function of the opposing muscle which pulls the brows up is enhanced, thus naturally lifting the brows. In addition the botulinum toxin can also smooth away deep frown lines located in the forehead area giving an all-round younger, rejuvenated appearance. The treatment is far less invasive than cosmetic brow lift surgery, and brow lift cost using Botox is ultimately cheaper. In essence it’s an instant, cost effective solution for those looking to keep the signs of ageing at bay.
Botulinum toxin is derived from a protein found naturally in the environment. When injected into the skin it has the ability to relax muscles by blocking the nerve impulses to those nerves. As a result it reduces muscle activity that causes facial movement lines and wrinkles. The cosmetic effects of botulinum toxin were first documented in 1989 and by 2002 it was approved for use in the UK. Now it’s regularly and safely used in millions of non-surgical treatments every year.
Botox brow lift treatment is used regularly on men and women of all skin types to achieve that perfect look. It can help those with naturally drooping or low-hanging eyelids and those who experience mild brow hooding. In addition the treatment is also suitable for those who simply feel that they would benefit aesthetically from a non-surgical eyebrow lift. The process is one of many that are proven to reverse the signs of ageing. As a result many patients say that they not only look and feel younger, but are more confident because of it.

The results are a younger, beautiful look that can help to boost confidence. Here at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics we use the very latest dermal fillers coupled with our highly-skilled team in order to provide the very best lip enhancement results.
Firstly a topical anaesthetic is applied to numb the lip area. This is usually done 15-30 minutes before treatment starts. Once the area is sufficiently numb, dermal filler (in the form of a non-animal based hyaluronic acid) is then injected into precise locations into the lips. The area is then massaged to stimulate and smooth the product. The whole process from start to finish should take
between 30-40 minutes. Results are immediate and will last 6-12 months.
