Did You Know That a Beautiful Smile Doesn’t Have to End with Your Teeth?

At Advance Dental Clinic, we specialise in beautiful smiles, but we don’t just offer dental treatments. We also provide the latest facial aesthetic services to enhance your smile and make you look and feel younger.

Our facial treatments

We are proud to offer incredible non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments in the heart of Essex. If you’re worried about wrinkles, or you’re looking to make your smile stand out, we can provide non-surgical treatment, including Botox and dermal fillers in Chelmsford,Essex.


Botox is an increasingly popular non-surgical facial treatment, which is used to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles and smooth the complexion. Botox is injected into the skin, and it works by restricting muscle contraction, causing the facial muscles to relax. The injections are administered using a very fine needle, and they are not painful. Treatment takes around 15-30 minutes, and Botox can be used to target lines and folds on different parts of the skin, including the forehead, the area around the eyes and the folds surrounding the nose and mouth. The effects of treatment become visible within 2-3 days, and they should last for up to 6 months.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are used to add volume and plumpness to the skin, and they can help to define the features and soften lines and wrinkles. As you age, the collagen stores in your body become depleted, and this causes your skin to sag and folds to form. Fillers combat the loss of collagen and elastin, making the skin firmer and creating a more youthful complexion. We can also use fillers to enhance the lips for a fuller pout. Like Botox, fillers are a temporary solution, and they usually last up to 9 months. We offer highly-rated filler treatments, including Restylane and Hydra-fil.

Our facial treatments

We offer a wide range of non-surgical facial treatments, which are designed to add radiance, reduce the visibility of signs of ageing, and make you feel more confident. Our treatments include:


Botox is a very common facial treatment, which is used to soften lines and wrinkles and create a more youthful aesthetic. Botox is injected into targeted areas of the skin. It reduces the severity of wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. When Botox is injected into the skin, this restricts muscle contraction by blocking nerve signals. Botox treatment is simple and painless, and the results last up to 6 months. Usually, a treatment session takes around 20 minutes and the results become visible after 24-36 hours. To administer treatment, our highly-trained aesthetic practitioner, Semira, uses a very fine needle. Most people don’t need anaesthetic but if you’re nervous, we can apply a mild topical anaesthetic to prevent pain.


Fillers are an increasingly popular treatment for those looking for younger skin. Fillers soften lines and add volume to the skin, combatting the signs of depleted collagen in the body. Collagen is the fibre that gives the skin its bounce and structure. Fillers can be used to prevent saggy skin, to reduce the visibility of lines and to enhance the facial features, for example, the cheekbones. Like Botox, the process is very quick and straightforward. The results last up to 9 months.

Chemical peels

If you dream of glowing skin, a chemical peel may be just the tonic for you. Chemical peels are designed to remove the surface skin layers, producing a radiant, youthful complexion. Treatment takes place over 4 weeks.

How Dermal Fillers Can Give You a More Youthful Smile

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular facial treatment. Fillers are an anti-ageing therapy, which can be used to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles to create young-looking, vibrant skin. As well as rejuvenating the skin, fillers can also be used to showcase your smile by targeting sagging skin in the cheeks and enhancing your lips.

About dermal fillers

Fillers traditionally add volume to the skin and combat the effects of a loss of collagen. Collagen is a fibre, which is used by the body to give the skin structure and shape. As you get older, your body’s collagen stores become depleted, and this is why the skin sags and wrinkles form. Dermal fillers add bounce and firmness to the skin, creating a more youthful look. While fillers can work wonders for your skin, they can also bring out your smile in all its glory. Plumping the pout is an increasingly popular treatment and it can really enhance your smile.

Fillers are usually injected into the skin using a very fine needle in a painless procedure, which lasts around 15-30 minutes. With treatment on the lips, the procedure can take a little longer and it’s likely to be slightly more painful, due to the delicacy of the skin on the lips. To prevent discomfort, we apply topical anaesthetic prior to treatment. The aim is always to produce natural results, which enhance your beauty and showcase your best features.

Are dermal fillers a good option for me?

Dermal fillers are ideally suited to those who would like to look younger without going through surgery. This is a non-invasive treatment, which produces temporary results. You can have treatment, and then decide whether to repeat it once the effects start to wear off after 6-9 months. If you’re unsure, or you’d like to find out more, our team will be more than happy to answer questions and give you a better idea of what treatment involves and how it could benefit you.

How Dermal Fillers Could Refresh Your Face this October

Summer is over and if you’re in need of a little pick me up with chilly weather and dark nights on the way, why not treat yourself to an indulgent, youth-boosting facial treatment? If your skin is crying out for some TLC or you’re desperate to banish those lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be ideal for you.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are an anti-ageing treatment, which helps to make you look and feel younger by giving your skin more bounce and definition. As you get older, the amount of collagen in your body decreases and your skin loses firmness and structure, causing lines to develop. Fillers help to add volume, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and facial folds. Fillers can also be used to define your features and enhance your natural beauty and they’re also commonly used to add plumpness to the lips.

What does filler treatment involve?

Fillers are injected into the skin using a very fine needle in a procedure that usually takes around 15-40 minutes. Before you have treatment, we will invite you to attend an informal consultation so that we can discuss what treatment entails and talk about where you want to have treatment. Most commonly, wrinkles develop around the eyes and forehead and between the mouth and nose and fillers can be used to enhance the cheekbones and jaw line. Our experienced team always strives to produce a natural result and we can assure you that you’re in the best hands.

If you’re keen to find a non-surgical solution for lines and wrinkles or your complexion needs rejuvenating, call us now and book an appointment.

Treatment is provided by Monica Berrange, our highly-trained aesthetics practitioner, so you can rest assured that you’re in the best hands.

Botox treatment

Botox is a very popular anti-ageing treatment, which is used most commonly to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is injected into the skin to create a smoother, younger looking complexion. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, which causes the muscles to relax and the skin to soften. It is most common to have Botox treatment around the eyes, on the forehead and between the mouth and nose. Botox treatment is very simple, and there’s nothing to worry about. Monica will guide you through the process and she is an expert in creating natural looks. The procedure involves injecting a very small amount of Botox into areas of the skin using a very fine needle. It only takes around 15-30 minutes, and you’ll be able to get back to work straight away. The results of Botox treatment should last up to six months.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular facial treatment. This non-invasive technique smoothes the skin by adding volume and fullness, which is lost as a result of depleted collagen stores. Fillers help to restore the natural bounce of young skin, and they can also be used to define the facial features, including the jaw line and the cheekbones. Like Botox, dermal filler treatment is not a permanent solution and it is a non-surgical treatment. The effects should be noticeable for up to 9 months. The procedure is similar to Botox and it should only take around 15-30 minutes. Our filler treatments include Hydra-fil and Restylane.

Refresh Your Face: Botox vs Dermal Fillers

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished you had a magic wand to wave lines and wrinkles away? We can’t carry out magic spells at Advance Dental Clinic, but we do have incredible facial rejuvenation treatments on offer. If you dream of wrinkle-free, youthful skin, let us treat you to a refreshing, reinvigorating treatment. We offer Botox and dermal fillers and with our experienced aesthetic practitioner, Monica, you can rest assured that you’re in the safest hands.

Botox vs dermal fillers: what are the differences?

Botox and dermal fillers are non-invasive facial treatments, which are designed to reduce the visibility of ageing signs such as wrinkles, folds and lines. Although the treatment process is similar, the way the therapies work is different.

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is injected into areas of the skin to soften the appearance of lines. Botox smoothes the skin by causing the facial muscles to relax. It does this by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. When the muscles relax, you get a smoother, line-free complexion. It’s common to have Botox treatment on the forehead, around the eyes and by the nose and mouth. This is an effective treatment for common symptoms such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox treatment is very straightforward and it simply involves having a series of injections into carefully selected areas of the face. We use a very fine needle to minimise discomfort and Monica controls the amount of fluid very carefully to ensure a natural finish. Treatment usually takes around 15-30 minutes and the effects should become visible after 24-48 hours. Treatment lasts up 6 months.

Dermal fillers do not work in the same way as Botox, but they are also an effective solution for lines and wrinkles. Rather than blocking signals to the muscles, dermal fillers add volume to the skin, compensating for decreased levels of collagen and elastin. Fillers soften wrinkles, but they also enhance your best facial features and we can use them to add definition to your cheekbones and also to create fuller lips. Like Botox, filler treatment is temporary, with results lasting up to 9 months. Treatment usually takes around 20-30 minutes.

How to Turn Back the Years with Dermal Fillers

Most of us dream of eternal youth. Sadly, time travel isn’t available, but there are ways of rolling back the years. With our advanced anti-ageing treatments, we’ll have you looking and feeling younger in no time.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are an anti-ageing treatment, which helps to counteract the effects of reduced collagen stores in the body. Collagen is a fibre, which gives the skin firmness and flexibility. As you age, one of the things you’ll notice is that your skin loses elasticity, and this causes lines and wrinkles to form. Thankfully, we have an effective solution for unwanted facial lines. Fillers soften wrinkles and give you a smoother, more youthful complexion by adding volume to the skin.

We use a carefully-controlled quantity of filler to create natural looks, and our practitioner Monica has many years of experience, so you can enjoy peace of mind that you’re in good hands.

What does treatment involve?

If you’re interested in dermal fillers, you may be wondering what you can expect if you decide to go ahead with treatment. The treatment process is very simple and we usually complete sessions within 15-30 minutes. Before you have treatment, you can discuss the problems areas you want to address with Monica and she will tell you exactly what will happen when you have your session. A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of filler into the desired areas of the face. These injections aren’t painful, but we can numb the skin first if you’re apprehensive. The effects of treatment will become apparent within around 48 hours.

Dermal fillers do not produce permanent results, but the effects should be visible for up to nine months. At this point, you can decide whether to continue treatment or not.

If you’re keen to turn back time and you’re looking for an effective non-invasive treatment, dermal fillers could be the solution. Call us today to find out more!

How to Turn Back the Years with Dermal Fillers

Most of us would love to have youthful skin forever. Sadly, there’s no way of stopping the ageing process, but that doesn’t mean you can’t roll back the years and rejuvenate your complexion. With dermal fillers, we can give your skin a beautiful, youthful glow and make you look and feel a million dollars without the need for surgery.

What are dermal fillers?

Fillers are a popular anti-ageing treatment, which help to combat the effects of depleted collagen stores. As you get older, the amount of collagen in your body decreases, and this causes the skin to lose elasticity and firmness. This is why you notice skin folds, wrinkles and lines. Fillers add volume to your skin, making it look plumper and smoother.

If you have facial lines, and you don’t want to have cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers could provide the solution you’ve been looking for. This is a non-invasive treatment, which reduces the visibility of wrinkles and makes you look and feel younger.

What does filler treatment entail?

Filler treatment is fast and painless. We will plan your treatment in advance and talk you through the process when you have your consultation. On the day, we will use a very fine needle to inject a small amount of filler into the desired areas. It takes a couple of days for the effects of treatment to become apparent, and they should last around 6-9 months. We understand that many people feel anxious about having injections, but the needle is very fine and we can use topical anaesthetic to numb the skin and prevent any discomfort. Filler treatment only takes around 15-30 minutes, and you shouldn’t suffer side-effects, which means that you can get back to the rest of your day straight after. If you do have mild bruising or swelling, taking over the counter pain relief can help.

If you’re interested in non-invasive anti-ageing treatments and you’re looking for expert dental care, why not give us a call today?

Get Fuller Lips for a Beautiful Smile

In recent years there has been a lot of focus in the media on full lips and perfect smiles and if you feel that your smile would benefit from some gorgeous voluptuous lips or you are concerned that your lips look a little thin, we can help. At Advance Dental Clinic we offer the latest facial treatments, which not only produce a beautiful, healthy and glowing complexion, but also plump the lips, giving you a stunning, yet natural, pout.

Why would I consider fillers?

If you think you have thin lips or you simply wish you had a fuller pout, fillers can help. We are aware of the ‘trout-pout’ look and use high quality techniques and materials to ensure the perfect, natural look, so you do not have to worry about looking fake or over-done.

Fillers are a safe and effective means of adding volume to the lips and they can also be used to address signs of ageing, such as dull and sunken skin and lines and wrinkles.

What does the procedure involve?

Dermal filler is injected into the skin and the amount used is determined by the amount of extra volume you want. We work closely with our patients to ensure we have the same treatment goals and we encourage our clients to share their opinions.

The treatment process is simple and quick. The lips are numbed before the needle is inserted to reduce pain and the filler is then injected. Treatment sessions are short, lasting around 20-30 minutes.

What will happen after treatment?

Your lips are sensitive and it is common for them to feel a little uncomfortable after treatment. They may also be slightly swollen and we may recommend applying ice packs and using topical creams to ease pain. Any discomfort should subside quickly and you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your treatment very shortly after your session.

Let’s Talk About Dermal Fillers!

Although there are wide choices of injectable dermal fillers available, we offer Restylane as a natural and trusted treatment in facial rejuvenation. Both men and women choose Restylane to combat effects of ageing and for a more youthful looking skin.

Restylane smooths skin safely

Media reports show that not all dermal fillers are safe to use as some may produce allergic responses. Restylane is formulated with hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally within skin layers for hydration and healthy complexion. Injecting Restylane hyaluronic acid within skin wrinkles and folds volumises, hydrates and smooths skin naturally.

At Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford we offer Restylane cosmetic treatment as a natural means of rejuvenating facial skin. Restylane is free of animal ingredients and side-effects, giving peace of mind while enhancing facial beauty.

Restylane is a versatile anti-ageing treatment

Restylane may be injected into wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, nose and mouth to add volume for a wrinkle-free skin. Excess sun exposure, poor health, smoking, and ageing may cause premature skin wrinkling. Restylane restores skin quality and youthful expression.

When injected within lip curves, Restylane enhances lip plumpness and definition. The results achieved with Restylane may differ based on skin type and health, lifestyle and age.

Restylane gives immediate and lasting results

Once injected with a fine needle into skin folds or wrinkles, Restylane is absorbed by the skin naturally for immediate results. Treatment time is about thirty minutes, giving a smooth skin effect lasting between six months to a year.

Over time, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body through natural processes. Maintenance Restylane treatments may be provided for lasting results. Restylane is the choice in dermal filler cosmetic care for immediate, safe and trusted results in facial rejuvenation.
