Ageing is a natural process but many of our patients want to continue to look and feel good with a healthy, natural glow. Our skin reacts to the influences of daily life, including the sun, smoking and, unfortunately, the ageing of the facial muscles.
To help counteract the ageing process, we suggest that all our patients should try to :-
- Drink plenty of water
- Eat a healthy balanced diet
- Stop smoking
- Use a high factor sun cream
- Apply moisturisers to help keep your skin hydrated
One of the beauty treatments on offer to help fight the ageing process is Botox. Skilled application of Botox helps to relax the muscle tissue which in turn can help prevent ageing associated with the daily influences of life. It is applied in the region of the face where dermal collagen has weakened. These areas are most commonly the forehead, upper lip and around the eyes.
Dermal fillers are an excellent addition to Botox treatments. They help to restore a soft, smooth surface texture to deeply lined areas of the face.
These procedures are painless with noticeable results after 10-14 days leaving a natural radiant appearance to the treated areas.
We have exciting things happening here at Whickham Dental Practice.
Our very own Dental Hygienist, Caroline Campbell is now running a skin rejuvenation clinic right here at the practice. Caroline has worked with us for over 25 years and having always had an interest in skin has qualified as a facial aesthetics practitioner.
Caroline is now offering various collagen therapies in the form of Dermaplaning, Dermapeel, BioRepeel, Microneedling with bespoke Mesotherapy and the new award winning Sunekos Treatment.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective form of exfoliation, eliminating dead skin cells and vellus hair. This increases product absorption and leaves skin feeling and looking smooth, with flawless make up application after treatment a huge benefit.
Active ingredients promote cell turnover, minimising fine lines & wrinkles, lesson acne occurrence, brighten the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation.
DermaPeel is a synergistic treatment combining dermaplaning and a bespoke peel, specifically created to be used in combination to offer optimum results.
A medical grade peel containing a formula of lactic acid, Phytic acid, Kojic acid and Glutathione to plump,hydrate and brighten the skin.
Microneedling with bespoke Mesotherapy is carried out using a DermaPro device. This is a unique microneedling pen that creates thousands of micro channels in the skin to stimulate cell communication and renewal, providing collagen and elastin regeneration.
During the treatment, amino acids, vitamins & minerals (that are specifically tailored to your skin needs) are delivered deep into the skin via the micro channels.
Sunekos is a revolutionary, award winning new treatment. It is injected and contains hyaluronic acid and specific amino acids to target and feed fibroblasts. Fibroblast cells are stimulated to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Whilst improving the condition of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles can be diminished. Skin is hydrated from within and volume and elasticity restored.
Protocol is 4 treatments, 7-10 days apart with results lasting up to 6 months. Improvement in facial volume can be seen after just 1 appointment but for long lasting, noticeable improvements 4 treatments are required.
Sunekos is a more natural choice than fillers as results are achieved without altering facial contours.

Protocol is 4 peels , 7-10 days apart, it is also possible to have a one-off treatment to give skin a boost and a glow.
