How Botox is helping artist Peter Howson

Wed

Latest News

Recently the Daily Mail featured a story about how Botox is helping artist Peter Howson. People often think of Botox as just an anti-ageing treatment, however, it is much more than that. Peter is one of Scotland’s most well-known artists. He has been successful in this field for many years. Recently though he was diagnosed with Dystonic Tremors, which is quite rare. A symptom of this is tremors and shaking. Due to this Peter was finding it very difficult to paint.

There is actually no cure for the disease, however, there is a surprising treatment that suppresses the symptoms. The artist is now undergoing regular Botox injections in his wrist. The treatment is administered in very small amounts directly into the muscles that are causing the tremors.

Peter admits that he used to be suspicious of Botox and would never have considered having the treatment before this issue developed. He was quoted as saying, “Ironically, I have a complete aversion to all kinds of cosmetic treatments and surgery so it’s quite funny that I’ve had to turn to Botox injections in my wrist to allow me to continue my work.” The Glasgow-born artist is preparing for a big exhibition in New York. The exhibition is due to be unveiled in May of this year.  Luckily he can now paint unhindered due to the versatility of Botox injections.

Celebrities get ready for awards season

Mon

 The way celebrities get ready for awards season varies, however, most will have cosmetic tweaks here and there to enhance their look. As well as amazing hair, makeup, and jaw-dropping dresses, the face and teeth are as important. Celebs may undergo cosmetic dentistry to look and feel great. Some of the more common procedures are teeth whitening, Botox, dermal fillers, veneers and invisible braces.

Dr Esho’s opinion:

Dr Esho has given his opinion to the Daily Mail on who he thinks has had extra help. The popular celebrity cosmetic doctor believes that he can identify the stars who have had treatments. For example, celebs such as Jennifer Lopez and Penelope Cruz are looking differently to previous years, however, both still looking fabulous. Although he has not treated any of these stars personally, he provides his professional opinion. “It does appear that her [J-Lo’s] lips have increased in size and shape over time, which suggests small amounts of lip filler over a sustained period of time – very subtle.” Dr. Esho also believes that Rita Ora’s beautiful face has recently undergone Botox injections. While the celebrities get ready for awards season, the public eagerly anticipates who will win these prestigious events. With a specific focus on who will look great doing so.

Dentaid pilot project extends to Bradford

 

Dentaid pilot project extends to Bradford to target vulnerable patients. The charity is well known for its work at home and abroad and offers dental care to refugees and third world countries. However, Dentaid’s newest project focuses closer to home. They have rolled out a new project in Yorkshire and the Humber to focus on providing dental care to patients most in need.

The new scheme involves newly qualified dentists providing dental care and treatment to Bradford’s most vulnerable. This includes refugees, the homeless and people suffering from addiction. The new dentists offer their time free of charge which, therefore, helps them to develop and gain valuable experience. Since December, Dentaid has hosted five clinics. The clinics have been a huge success.

Dentaid has contributed equipment and portable dental chairs to the initiative. As a result, this donation ensures that treatment can be carried out more effectively. They are hoping to roll out similar services to other parts of the country in the near future. Colgate are also supporting the pilot scheme. Due to this, it means that free toothbrushes and toothpaste are readily available to those who desperately need them.

Bryan Ray, Britney Spears superfan gets his dream. The Los Angeles born Bryan has been a huge fan of the star for many years and also claims that she was a huge inspiration to him as he was growing up. Bryan spoke to the Sun newspaper, “Britney will always be one of my biggest inspirations. I love that she was the biggest star in the world, went through an incredibly hard time and came out on top”

Bryan stated that he sees the singer as absolute ‘perfection’ and set about tailoring his look to mimic his idol. Bryan’s first procedure was dental veneers at the age of seventeen. The veneers were made to match Britney’s exact teeth. As a result of the beautiful veneers, Bryan decided to have some more cosmetic work done. The transformation consisted of Botox, lip fillers, a rhinoplasty and an array of other procedures. Therefore, spending over £63,000 in total.

Bryan hopes to make it in the modeling industry in the near future. He definitely has a look of the star and even his friends call him ‘Britney’. As a result of the procedures, it seems like Bryan is the happiest he has ever been. He looks amazing and his confidence has been massively improved.

3D printed teeth become a reality

3D printed teeth become a reality

Thanks to a collaboration between Dubai’s Middle East Dental Laboratory and Sinterex, 3D printed teeth become a reality. The process uses a 3D printer to achieve natural looking dental implant bridges. The printed teeth are stunningly realistic, making it near impossible to tell the difference. The new technology will also speed up the process of creating dental bridges.

The 3D printing process starts by distributing thin layers of metal powder across a platform. This is then selectively melted by a laser. The use of the laser gives the implants their shape and definition. The implants then have metal parts added to them. These are used to attach it to the patient’s bone. Finally, ceramic is applied. The ceramic gives the implants an even and natural finish which replicates the look of tooth enamel.

Managing Director of Sinterex, Julian Callanan, has been quoted in the media saying, “Using our state of the art 3D printing technology we have been able to produce a highly accurate metal framework in only 4 hours.” This breakthrough is huge in terms of production within the dental industry. 3D printing will increase the speed in which dentists can produce moulds, therefore keeping the patient happy and increasing profits at the same time.

How Botox helped Dannii Minogue

How Botox helped Dannii Minogue

How Botox helped Dannii Minogue: It is no secret that Dannii Minogue has gone through a tough time over the last few years. The breakdown of her relationship with Kris Smith, the father of her child, and thyroid issues have taken their toll on the Aussie celebrity. In a recent interview with The Sun newspaper, Dannii opened up about how Botox helped her through a tough time.

Dannii was quoted on NEWS.com.au, “I don’t think I’m the only woman to use Botox that way, except a lot of times I think it might be a subconscious thing — that you don’t want people to see how you really feel.” However, the star did go on to say that she is ‘genuinely happy’ now, and is looking forward to her role in Gary Barlow’s new show, Let It Shine.

There has always been debate over cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, however, it is clear that they can have a positive effect. Looking good on the outside helped Dannii work on feeling good on the inside.

Irish man’s amazing teeth transformation

Irish man’s amazing teeth transformation

Irish man’s amazing teeth transformation: Fifty-five-year-old Patrick Naughton has undergone an amazing smile transformation thanks to 3Dental in Dublin.

As a child, Patrick had all his milk teeth removed. This left him with severe complications due to there being no structure to guide his growing adult teeth. Therefore, when they erupted, they grew at angles and caused a very unsightly smile.

Patrick decided to get professional help for his teeth after his son had finished his education, and contacted the team at 3Dental. The fifty-five-year-old joked to the Independent Ireland, “I think my teeth frightened the guys when I met with them at first.” Initially, they extracted some of his teeth, then for the first three months, he had to wear wires. Following that, he had an array of dental work, and now has crowns, dental implants and some of his own teeth in place. The process took a year to complete.

Patrick remained positive throughout the process and says that since the work has been finished his confidence has ‘soared’. The treatment has changed his life, and he no longer avoids parties and celebrations through fear of smiling.

Cornwall dentist saves patient’s life

Cornwall dentist saves patient’s life

Cornwall dentist saves patient’s life – Dental patient, David Oldham, fell ill just before Christmas as he waited to see a dentist at his local surgery. The sixty-six-year-old man collapsed in the waiting room and remembers very little about the incident. The receptionist, Jill Constance, sounded the alarm and alerted the attention of dentist, Brian Needham. They both rushed to the aid of their patient.

Luckily for Mr. Oldham, his dentist’s previous job was a paramedic. This training, coupled with his dentistry experience, allowed Mr. Needham to identify a cardiac arrest and save the patient’s life. The practice staff worked together to perform CPR, and used a defibrillator to keep the sixty-six-year-old alive. Paramedics arrived on the scene after four minutes of receiving the emergency call and took over from the dentist’s staff.

Shortly after paramedics arrived an air ambulance was on the scene to take Mr. Oldham to the local hospital. Because of the quick thinking of the dental staff, and the life-saving equipment that they had to hand, their patient lives to tell the tale of his ordeal. Practice manager, Andy Taylor, said that it is vital that surgeries have defibrillators on hand for such occasions as these.

    My favourite part of Pearl Dental Clinic is my clinician, Dr Ehsan Esfahani. Dr Esfahani is very good at explaining my current status and my future treatment plan (Invisalign Full) he gives me great assurance and confidence that the outcome of my treatment will be as promised in my first consultation - Dr Esfahani is reluctant to make promises that he knows cannot be delivered. In addition to his excellent dentistry knowledge and professional manner Dr Esfahani is a genuinely nice person who is very welcoming, relaxing and a pleasure to have as my dentist. I should also thank Dr Esfahani's assistant and the gentleman on the front desk (Wednesday nights) who are both incredibly polite and helpful during every visit to the practice.
