Wrinkle reduction & facial fillers
Alpha Dental Group is pleased to announce our new service to our patients in the convenience of your usual dental practice in associtation with Vitality Facial Aesthetics.
Vitality Facial Aesthetics was founded by Dentist Jayne Gordon, who has over 20 years dental experience and trained in facial aesthetics (Botox and fillers) in 2008 with the organisation CODE and then went on to do an advanced course in these treatments in 2010 with Cosmetic Courses together with more recently completed a course on lip definition and augmentation with Medics Direct in 2012.
Having been a dentist for over 20 years, Jayne has extensive experience in administering local anaesthetics which are necessary for some facial aesthetics treatments.
We believe it is essential to treat your skin with high quality products which will complement your facial aesthetic treatments. We recommend and sell cosmaceutical products made by Agera.

How we can help?
These are injected into the forehead and around the eye area to relax muscles which cause wrinkles.
Juvaderm and Teosyl and Belotero fillers
These are hyaluronic acid fillers which are used to smooth deep lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume lost through the body’s ageing process. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the skin which holds water, hydrating and giving a youthful volume to the skin.
Liquid facelift using Sculptra
Sculptra is not a traditional filler – it’s an injectable with a difference. Sculptra replenishes natural collagen for a more natural looking, gradual build-up by correcting the underlying causes of the signs of facial ageing.
Who is it for?
Those with deeper lines, wrinkles and folds.
Those looking for a more gradual, longer-lasting effect – 95%of patients remained satisfied with the results for at least 2 years post-treatment.
- Sculptra is tolerable with good safety
- naturally biodegradeable and biocompatible
- established safety profile
How can Botilinum toxin make me look younger?
The toxin is injected into the facial muscles which tend to cause wrinkles in the upper face, to relax the muscles and soften the wrinkles. These muscles typically cause the ‘crows feet’ around the eyes, the horizontal lines in the forehead and the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
Will it hurt?
You will feel a tiny scratch at the area of injection – the discomfort is minimised by using tiny needles normally used by diabetics for insulin injections.
How long does it last?
The effects take up to a week to show and should last 3 to 4 months, some people lasts longer – it is very individual.
Can botulinum toxin also be used for excess sweating?
Yes – it is a really effective way to stop armpits sweating. The results will last for approximately 6 months.
Are there any side effects?
Botulinum toxin has been used safely for many years in the medical profession e.g. treating muscle twitching and squints. People will notice a slight redness at injection sites for the first hour. Occasionally slight temporary bruising may occur following treatment.
Who is it suitable for?
Men & women can benefit from wrinkle relaxants. Ideally, treatment should start before wrinkles become too deep set. If deep lines exist on the face at rest, then it is unlikely that they will disappear completely. Regular treatments will, however, soften these lines with time.
