Facial Aesthetics At Holmes Dental Care

Various factors affect our skin over time – lifestyle, genetics, hormones, sun damage, smoking and stress all play their part in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As our skin loses volume over time, even the repetitive movements of facial expression will eventually leave their mark.

One of the most effective ways to improve your appearance and look younger is to smooth out lines and wrinkles and plump out facial features.

Holmes Dental Care in Cardiff is delighted to offer a range of facial aesthetic treatments to the same exacting standards as its dental care. These treatments are suitable for both men and women and are very effective in giving a more refreshed and youthful appearance.


Botulinum Toxin (Botox):

  • Anti-wrinkle of forehead (brow lift or preservation)
  • Frown lines
  • Crows feet
  • Bunny lines
  • ‘Orange peel’ chin

Other uses:
Gummy smile, facial slimming of masseter muscle, bruxism, headaches, migraines, lip flip, hyperhidrosis


  • Lips
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines

Wrinkle Relaxing

Wrinkle relaxing is a highly popular method of softening facial expression lines i.e. frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It works by relaxing the tiny facial muscles which create expression lines. The muscles no longer contract as forcefully so the overlying skin stays smooth and crease-free. The result is a more youthful, fresher look.


Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a widely used treatment which restore skin volume, giving it a smoother, younger look. Cosmetics and moisturising products such as anti-ageing creams only act on the upper layers of the skin, primarily the epidermis. To achieve long lasting improvements to the appearance of wrinkles, a deeper layer of skin should be treated. Fine lines, wrinkles and folds are immediately filled and corrected. Mouths too, can become fuller and lips more clearly defined.


Bruxism Treatments

Teeth grinding is a very common habit usually brought on by stress, it not only leads to wear of the teeth but can also lead to joint pain, jaw soreness, headaches and can make the jaw appear square. Traditional treatments such as nightguards help protect teeth and reduce pressure on the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) but do not treat the excessive muscle activity. Botulinum toxin can be carefully injected into the overactive muscles to help relax them reducing the pain associated with bruxism and softening the appearance of the jaw line. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and results usually last 3-4 months.


Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is one where an excess amount of gum is visible on smiling. This may be due to shortened teeth, enlarged gum tissue, a small upper lip or hyperactive muscles that raise the upper lip. Surgical, dental or orthodontic procedures may help dependent on the cause. Botulinum toxin injections can be placed to limit the effect of the elevator muscles and therefore, reduces the appearance of a gummy smile. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and lasts 3-4 months.


Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Sweating is a normal response to a rise in temperature or anxiety. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is most commonly caused by overactive sweat glands but can also be caused by certain medications or medical conditions. There are many over the counter products to attempt to reduce sweating such as strong antiperspirants or sweat shields. Botulinum toxin injections work by blocking the nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands for a longer lasting effect. It is a quick and simple procedure where a small amount is injected with a very fine needle into the area of excessive sweating. The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and lasts 3-6 months.

When first put forward, the notion of having an implant, I was reluctant as there were no decent alternatives and the best solution to the problem that I had. Dr Holmes and his staff were excellent and we spent some time going through the treatments. Now, some months later, the implant feels as if it’s been part of my mouth. It is so comfortable. It’s part of me. Thank you.

JP, had implants

To Barry & all of the wonderful staff, I have had the most wonderful experience here.

The staff are extremely professional, supportive and immediately put you at ease. They were informative and helpful at every step of my treatment. I would highly recommend this surgery to anybody wishing to make some ‘life changes’.

I am a changed woman! For 36 years, I have been so paranoid about my smile and was always conscious when having photos taken. I now feel so much more confident and not conscious about my smile at all. I don’t think I have ever smiled so much! I am so so happy. I will be forever grateful to you all. I’m going to miss my little visits here!

Thank you! Thank you a million times over.

CD, had Inman Aligner & clear aligners

The professionalism of treatment and care is impeccable. The 6 month smile is highly recommended with incredible finished results accompanied by perfect finishing touches. Barry and the entire staff team have been a pleasure to visit every fortnight. My teeth are beyond what I ever expected.

    Everyone at the Practice is lovely, the reception was really helpful.
    I just went for a scale and polish and Eli was supportive and very thorough with his discussing of my teeth, how to clean them properly etc.
    I am a very nervous patient
    … More and the dental hygienist assistant… (sorry, forgot your name but you are the petite, pretty Polish girl) was wonderful at comforting me throughout the procedure and helping me get through the process.
    Huge thanks you you all,
    Ruth with the headphones and Abba music! X

    Had a root canal done by Dr Pasisi who was suberb - so reassuring and helpful. I am really scared of dentists and she and her dental nurse immediately put me at my ease and made the whole experience a really good one. The receptionist … More is also really friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend the practice highly enough.
