A guide to non surgical procedures
Botox TM Injections (Botulinim Toxin Type A) Botox is one of the most common non surgical procedures with a reported one million injections administered in the UK last year. As we age our expression lines, laughter lines and fine lines from ageing can appear more definitive around the eyes, on the forehead and in between the eyes. Botox contains a substance which inhibits the facial muscle actions, thereby decreasing the brow and forehead furrowing and the skin around the eyes wrinkling and creating creases. These areas become ’at rest’ and hence the lines diminish and disappear temporarily. The effect of the injections takes up to 9 – 11 days to appear fully and lasts up to 3 to 4 months and then the muscles begin to work again. Botox must be prescribed by a doctor and a patient should fill in a medical questionnaire and sign a consent form. Botox can also treat excessive perspiration to the under arms, soles of the feet and palms of the hands. Only a doctor, dentist or aesthetic nurse practitioner should administer Botox injections. No anaesthesia is required and the treatment takes between 5 to 10 minutes to administer.

Fillers Temporary and Semi-Permanent Some of the most popular volumizing temporary fillers are from the Q-MED family Restylane and include Restylane; Lipp, Vital Light and Perlane, other are Juvederm, Hylaform and Evolence they are mostly Hyaluronic Acid, these last between 3-6 months or more. The semi-permanent ones are Sculptra and Radiesse and may require more than one treatment to achieve full and longer lasting results up to 2 years. As we age the skin loses elasticity and the collagen production slows down, the face loses volume and its youthful plumpness. Fillers are designed to be used in the face to enhance soft tissue volume and re-contour as well as fill in and smooth out depressed areas, such as around naso labial and marionette lines around the nose and mouth. Filler is used to augment the lips and lip line to enhance definition and restore natural fullness to the lips; it can also be used to re contour the upper and lower face and jaw line. A local anaesthetic cream or sometimes an injection is used to numb the area and the procedure takes between fifteen minutes to an hour. Laser Skin Re-surfacing Ablative The most commonly used ablative lasers are the carbon dioxide or erbium yag where the upper layers of the skin are removed to smooth fines lines and wrinkles, for scar revision and to treat irregular skin pigmentation. The Whisper laser peel is a treatment that requires 3 sessions over 3 months for optimum results and the effects are long lasting allowing for natural ageing, as long as sun protection is used along with a good skin maintenance regime. The Harmony erbium YAG is also used in minimally ablative skin re-surfacing. The treatments can take between 30 minutes and an hour and the recovery time is 2-3 weeks

Pixel Photo Rejuvenation The Pixel by Harmony is a safe and effective treatment for fractional ablative skin resurfacing on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Designed to treat aged and photodamaged skin, and improves the quality, appearance and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration. Skin resurfacing with the Pixel is a gradual process that happens over several treatments. The skin around the treatment area feels firmer and tighter with a smoother surface texture. Approximately 3 to 5 treatments are recommended at 2 weekly intervals and take around 45 minutes with no recovery time. Laser Hair Removal An excellent and popular treatment to remove unwanted hair. There are three different types of laser for different skin types and parts of the body. During a treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for re-growth. Most hair colour can be treated, from blonde to black, as well as most hair textures, from coarse to fine. It is effective in treating hairs on all parts of the body, including anywhere on the face, the bikini line, legs, underarms or a man's back and chest. Treatment takes between 15 to 45 minutes and a course of six is required at 4 -6 week intervals. Laser Tattoo Removal Almost any tattoo can now be removed with the use of lasers. The treatment works by breaking down the particles of ink suspended beneath the skin, enabling your immune system to naturally eliminate them.

Three types of laser are employed to remove different colour groups. Pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body's macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas. From 3 and up to 12 monthly sessions may be required, treatments vary on the size of the tattoo and can take between 15 to 45 minutes.

Deep chemical peels remove the upper layers of the skin to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, scars and to treat irregular brown pigmentation and are usually a higher concentration TCA. They can also be used in the treatment of acne. It takes approx 30 minutes to an hour with a local anaesthetic and recovery can vary from 2-4 weeks.

Other Laser Applications include Acne treatment, leg veins, stretch marks, cellulite reduction, rosacea and port wine stains, skin tightening. Chemical Peels Chemical peels can be light (non ablative) or deep (ablative). A light chemical peel will remove the superficial upper layers of the skin without downtime, although the skin can appear pink for a few hours after the treatments. Chemical peel solutions include retinoic acid, low concentration TCA and glycolics. They give an almost instantaneous improvement in the skins appearance, as the dead skin cells are removed and new skin regeneration is stimulated. It takes approx 30 minutes and if repeated every three weeks the results will continue to improve every time.

Microdermabrasion Microdermabrasion is a procedure which uses vacuum suction and fine organic crystals which deeply exfoliates and polishes the skin. It can be used on all parts of the body and face to remove dead skin cells and address fine lines, blocked pores, blemishes, minor scars and dull skin. A course of treatment is effective in specific problem areas and results improve after each 30 minute session. The skin looks buffed and is left feeling smooth.

emotive beauty
One of the things that has amazed me the most is the internal emotive change that these physical alterations can instigate...
After years of transforming and re-inventing smiles, faces, skin and bodies, I have obviously witnessed the physical characteristics of my patients changing over the course of their treatments, but one of the things that has amazed me the most is the internal emotive change that these physical alterations can instigate. I have seen confidence grow, contentment and self esteem spread, zest and vitality for life and in a way, a form of empowerment. We already know that every thought can produce a physical reaction and by changing the way a person thinks and feels about themselves it can produce an emotional change. Their physical body language alters and the way they communicate and present themselves changes, their image or dress sense gets tweaked and they start to emit a new found confidence, I have always maintained that “it’s not just about physical beauty, it’s about putting that spring back in your step and feeling good on the inside”. It is powerful beauty a sort of ‘Beauty and the Brain’ process, a combination of looking in the mirror and liking what you see, which builds confidence. Scientific studies at the University of California have shown results that our brains are trained on a proportion of attractiveness and beauty. Whilst eyes are the vehicle for receiving visual images, the brain decides how attractive those images are. Attractiveness appears to be related to how easy you can wrap your brain around a face. “A stimulus becomes attractive if it falls in to the average of what you have seen and is therefore simple for your brain to process,” said study author Piotr Winkielman of the University of California, San Diego. “In our experiments we show that we can make an arbitrary pattern likeable just by preparing the mind to recognize it quickly.” Ref: Live Science.com

A patient of mine Caroline came to me with very ill fitting dentures and as a result a sunken face. Caroline, I learned used to be confident, attractive, had the world at her feet and four beautiful children, a good husband and a highly successful florist business. She always had a sense of pride and enjoyed taking care of herself, looked good and enjoyed life. Ten years ago that all changed when her husband had a serious accident, her life fell into what seemed like a black hole and her priorities changed. It seemed as if overnight her confidence disappeared along with her life, beauty and looks. With her husband requiring constant care not only did her home life, but her social and emotional life changed completely. Caroline had what I call a truth moment on one of her visits to me when I asked her how she was, half an hour later her last eight years had spilled out to me. Caroline had a smile make-over using dental implants and new dentures and once she had the perfect picture, she was motivated to get the beautiful frame to that picture. When I talk to my patients I don’t judge them, I gain their trust ask them to show me what bothers them and so often the solution is not extreme, but a combination of natural and subtle enhancements, that when all put together have an amazing effect on how someone looks and feels. Caroline’s combined aesthetic treatments consist of a SkinScription chemical skin peel, a little Botox in the Glabellas and forehead, lip enhancement with Restylane Lipp, lower face and upper lip area rejuvenation with Restylane Vital and cheek augmentation with Restylane. The results speak for themselves and Caroline’s account of what happened to her is highly emotive and I would imagine that many people out there will relate very strongly to how she felt.

story

“it’s not just about physical beauty,it’s about putting that spring back in your step and feeling good on the inside”.

before

“I realised that I had gone to Tracey with the problem of my teeth and mouth because, they were ugly and it did bother me, but what Tracey also realised, without me telling her, was that I was lacking in confidence and assertion. By giving me the opportunity and the push to talk to her, I was able to pinpoint those physical signs and get them out in the open. And so began my ‘Reinvention’. So where did I begin, my mouth of course. The single thing that I had hated the most, the lines, the teeth, the loss of my luscious lips that many years ago had kissed the man I loved and married. So the magic of Tracey began with her team, my smile was transformed with dental Implants and new dentures- the confidence I gained from this alone was tenfold. I could smile, laugh and eat and they didn’t move. – “wow” I thought. The lovely picture Tracey had said. Now for the ‘Frame’ – my lips and soft tissue around my lips were transformed in to a frame that houses a masterpiece. With the use of Restylane for the lips and Vital for the fine lines my lips were restored to their original plumpness. I caught my reflection in the shop window and smiled

‘not bad’ I thought, things were improving! From then on I was transformed, a peel and my skin was improved. A little Botox in the brow and eye area and then my cheeks, something I would never have thought about before, but with the right education and treatments, my confidence grew and my personal metamorphosis continued. I even had some Restylane Vital Light treatments on my décolletage which had sun damage and lines, the result is remarkable. I didn’t think that I would ever be the type of person to have treatments of this nature, but I am so glad that I considered it and went ahead. On reflection, my looks changed with my circumstances, state of mind and age, I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror and my confidence dropped and stayed there for years. Tracey Bell and her team resurrected that confidence and the physical change has resulted in an emotional change for me. What is also strange is that my husband has improved as I have, could it be that my new found ‘get up and go’ and my smiling on the inside and outside feeling has had an effect on him? I think so.” Caroline Kirkham patient of Tracey Bell

Tracey Bell Clinics demand for skin tightening and body shaping is soaring to new heights and temperatures, increasing by 260% more than this time last year.
Why? The demand can partly be explained by ‘emotive beauty’ and of course the results. So what is the secret of the clinics that are certainly the ‘hottest’ in town and a haunt for celebrities? Combination treatments utilising Liposound, Accent RF and the Pixel Laser – all these energy based and heat treatments can provide you with solutions to your demands of ‘body reshaping’ and facial lifting and tightening making you look sensational. Tracey Bell has seen that the demand for body shaping, weight loss and skin tightening is out stripping supply in her clinics in the Isle of Man and Liverpool. The technique is a combination of treatments that consists of three main procedures 1.Liposound 2.Accent RF

Body Shaping and Skin Tightening. We are tightening our purses in this economic climate and it seems our figures are too...

If you look good – you feel good and if you feel good, you look good, it’s a synergy between both inner and outer beauty.

Liposound

Primarily, the liposound machine is utilised, a painless strip of conductors that deliver ultrasound producing Noradrenalin that in turn has an effect on the fat cells producing natural lipolysis. Combined with the delivery of the accent RF or ‘neocollagenesis’ as Tracey Bell describes that heat is delivered to the deep dermal tissues producing inflammation, collagen, expansion / production. In turn the effect is Slimming, Toning, Firming with ‘wow’ factor results.

1. ReStart (Diet / Portable Protein Pack) 2. ReShape (NeoCollagenesis) 3. RePlenish (The use of Nutraceuticals) 4. ReInvent (Time to make a change) These Treatments are not just confined to the body, heat based treatments are increasing as part of the new non-surgical ‘face lift’. Do you eever look in the mirror and say ‘if I could just do this’ and pull your face back with your fingers? Well now you can, get a lift without surgery with a completely non-invasive treatment that has guaranteed results. A machine like the Dermawave TM offers the ultimate in reduction of jowls and facial wrinkles, it reduces jowls, tightens skin and improves the skins texture whilst toning. A course of treatments is required to achieve results which are fabulous. Physical change is what happens over the days and weeks during those treatments but the by-product of physical change is certainly – emotive beauty.

Tracey Bell says: “You can certainly come in during your lunch time to have it done. It is the ideal treatment for those who find it difficult to exercise and plan their health, because they are time sensitive and want to look good, but more importantly feel good” Cost per session of Liposound / RF is £145 recommended number of treatments is 12. The Tracey Bell centres have certainly found a huge increase in the number of clients seeking a body shaping programme that is result driven and easy to follow. The treatment ‘neocollagenesis’ can also be combined with the SlimScription programme. A specific nutritionally prepared diet consisting of 4 phases.

case study
One client Kelly can now wear low cut jeans and waist hugging tops as a result of Neocollagenesis and Pixel Laser. Having had two babies Kelly was too self conscious and embarrassed to wear figure hugging clothes or in fact display her once perfect figure due to excess skin and stretch marks. “After hearing about SlimScription and Neocollagenesis process, I had a consultation with Tracey Bell at her Isle of Man clinic followed by six sessions of treatment. The treatment was painless and amazing, I have had 6 months of treatment and the stretch marks and excess skin have reduced amazingly. The results for me are ‘wow’” says Kelly, a client of Tracey Bell.

Case Study: Linda Turpin

In the busy lives that we lead our bodies can become neglected due to lifestyles and attitudes to food. Working hard, looking after our families and juggling all our commitments can mean that we have less time to make informed choices about our food when shopping, cooking and eating out.

The types of food we eat, when we eat and how we eat has a major influence on how we look and feel. Adding to that food can become a habit or an addiction and it can be difficult to break the cycle.
All of those elements can lead a person to become depressed and unhealthy, with the person on the outside not reflecting the true person on the inside. After a period of time feeling over weight and not liking what you see when you look in the mirror can totally de-motivate a person and strip away their confidence. The expert team at Tracey Bell have developed a synergistic approach to weight loss and body shaping taking in to account all of the elements that can help us to lose weight, reduce calorie and carbohydrate intake, manage appetite, shape and sculpt the body,

tighten and firm skin, tone the physique and re-gain inner confidence with emotive beauty.

ReStart – A controlled nutritional program that’s easy to understand and follow. ReShape – Aesthetic shaping treatments such as Liposound, which opens up the fat cells which in turn the body burns and energises. Radio Frequency tightens and firms the skin. RePlenish – A super combination of natural oral supplements which help to manage metabolism and helps to accelerate the burning of fat calories. ReInvent – The emotive beauty which helps to promote inner confidence and motivation to change how you feel about yourself and like what you see.

Linda’s Story: Linda has struggled with her weight for years and agreed to take part in one of our trials in 2008 “I have struggled with weight loss all of my life. Yes I’d tried every diet, had the medals, badges and rosettes to show my worth, but the same old story kept repeating itself over and over again. I would get geared up, get on the diet, claw my way to the finish line and hit my target, but I never felt quite complete, I felt somehow duped. Yes I had lost the weight, but my shape and how I felt about my body, never seemed right and insecurities set in about how I felt when I looked in the mirror and guess what – before I knew it I was back to being five stone overweight, plus a few extra pounds each time. So what was the difference this time? I found confidence, that’s what, I began to like what I could see and also realise how important my weight loss and changing shape was, to my brain. SlimScription certainly isn’t just any old diet, it’s not just about lowering your calorie and food intake, and in fact it was out with the scales and I focused purely on body, shape and image, all of the visual instruments which promote beauty to the brain and of course education in the program of:

hydrate and high protein and how it affects my health, but I could start to see the difference and I got excited and interested.

Before

With twice weekly Liposound and Radio Frequency I have been able to see my body re-shaping as I slim.
The weight loss combined with me beginning to regain my shape – My eyes began to like what they could see. I can see and feel the difference, I haven’t got the saggy bits I had before when I lost weight, I am not hungry and not constantly thinking about food and I feel full of vitality and lust for life! I feel proud of what I have achieved and my confidence is growing, people keep telling me how wonderful I look and I feel so happy.”

Plaque Terminators the Rise of the Hygienists
So what’s the big deal? You brush your teeth twice a day, what more can a visit to the hygienist do? Lots more, but first here’s a quick reminder of why good dental and oral hygiene is so important.
A major cause of gum disease is plaque that builds up on the gum line due to lack of regular brushing and flossing. If plaque is left there long enough, it hardens into tartar. Tartar is even more difficult to remove and has to be scraped and chipped away by a dental hygienist. It has tiny sharp edges, so that when you do brush, the gums bleed. The multiplying and thriving bacteria cause inflammation in the gums, and this is the first stage of gum disease: gingivitis The second stage of gum disease is Periodontitis which causes sore, swollen gums that recede from your teeth and create bigger pockets between gum tissue and teeth. This offers larger breeding areas for the bacteria, and thus a vicious cycle is established. Infection will result and if left untreated, your teeth begin to loosen and eventually fall out. It can also spread to other parts of the body. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream and travel via the bleeding gums. Researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease. Inflammation caused by Gum Disease may also link to other chronic inflammatory diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, Diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease and most recently a study published in the June issue of The Lancet Oncology found that men with They will educate you and your family not just about gum disease but also; how to prevent tooth decay, show you exactly how you should be brushing and flossing your teeth, how to eliminate Bad Breath, and how to keep your tongue healthy. Every 6 months a visit to the hygienist for a scale and polish and the fresh breath clinic could prove to be not just a tooth saver but a life saver! a history of gum disease are 14 percent more likely to develop cancer than men with healthy gums. So that’s the Big Deal and your Dental Hygienist should be your new best friend.

One person who had a petrifying fear of the dentist is Pauline Chrisp
“At the beginning of this year Tracey Bell became my dentist and my relationship with my teeth changed forever. I had always been scared of the dentist and had received terrible treatment in the past which made the problem worse. If I had to go to the dentist I was almost paralysed with fear for days before hand and was often physically ill. Several people suggested I change dentists, but for me it was almost ‘better the devil you know’ and I carried on as I was with a smile which was usually hidden behind my hand and a terrible fear of the dentist that could be set off by just driving past a dental surgery.
Being in my 50’s I had accepted that my teeth were always going to be as they were, filled, crooked and with a partial denture which I would never ever let anyone see me without, but by a twist of fate, Tracey held a competition to win a make over, including dental work and after being entered by my daughter I was one of the lucky winners. Of course I was delighted but I was also terrified that one of my worst fears was about to be exposed. The night before my first appointment I couldn’t sleep with worry. By the time I arrived at the surgery I was a nervous wreck even though Tracey had already explained at first I could just come into the surgery and sit and have a coffee to get used to it.

What does your smile say about you?
First Impressions are Lasting Impressions. A survey for the Royal Mail found
that 72% of people perceive those who smile frequently to be more happy, intelligent, confident and successful while 86% say they are more likely to strike up conversations with strangers if they are smiling. Bosses are 12% more likely to promote people who smile alot. People who have had their smile enhanced by a cosmetic dentist say “I actually feel younger and fitter and smile more!” “People say I look happier and they seem to get along better with me” “I feel like I have been charged with a positive energy!” So ‘What is standing in between you and the perfect smile?’ Here at Tracey Bell the home of SmileScription we know that how you feel about your smile and showing your teeth can affect you deeply if you have problematic teeth, dentures, gaps, discolouration or crooked teeth. It is something that we deal with every day. Our dentists have discovered two main reasons that actually prevent people from coming to the dentist. One is a Fear or a Phobia of the Dentist, which is very real for some people.

Tracey explained to me what was going to happen before each appointment started and constantly reassured me throughout without being patronising. She worked so quickly and efficiently that before I had chance to worry we’d be finished and even having an extraction, the thing I was most frightened of, was over before I could think about it. In the past when I had asked about correcting my smile as well as having the usual reactive fillings, I was told not to be so stupid but for Tracey, nothing was too much trouble and she was determined to give me teeth to be proud of. The day I could take out my denture and look at my finished smile was one of the best days of my life, like winning the lottery! I’m so proud of my new smile and the renewed confidence that it has given me. Becoming one of Tracey’s patients has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. As well as overcoming a huge fear in my life she has given me back the ability to smile without feeling self conscious, something I haven’t done since I was a child. Now I can’t stop smiling and my smile is even wider when I think about Tracey and how she has changed my life.” Our experience has shown that sometimes people do not bother talking to their dentist about how they feel about their teeth, because they think that nothing can be done, or they have had poor treatment already or that it could be considered slightly vain to want a nice smile. Did you know however, one single Google search under the term ‘Help I hate my Smile’ brings up over 858,000 listings. The theme is that people think that they have a problem that can’t be solved and sometimes the lack of confidence that they suffer has a complete knock on effect in every aspect of their life.

“Becoming one of Tracey’s patients has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.As well as overcoming a huge fear in my life she has given me back the ability to smile without feeling self conscious”

When I arrived at Tracey Bell on Kensington Road I was amazed. It was like no where I had ever been before, beautifully decorated, warm and friendly, no plastic chairs and moth eared magazines to be seen. It didn’t even smell like a dental surgery! All of the staff were so kind and positive and after each visit (and I had plenty!) I began to relax and was totally absorbed by Tracey’s amazing attitude.

Restorative Dentistry “Teeth are the internal scaffolding of the face, get that right and you can alter the facial anatomy”
Missing teeth, ill fitting dentures, crowded teeth and incorrect bite can cause the face and jaw to be incorrectly aligned. Tracey Bell will be welcoming a new member of staff in February. Tanya Karamousli will be the first Msc in aesthetic reconstructive dentistry on the island and she will be here to offer you her expertise and interdisciplinary approach.

A quick guide to perfect smiles
Veneers Veneers can be used to correct crooked teeth or to improve a discoloured, tired or ripple edged teeth. Beautiful and natural looking, strong and stain resistant, high quality porcelain veneers can be used to fix just one or multiple teeth. Bonding For a short, crooked, broken, chipped or decayed tooth the dentist can apply a colour matched resin compound over the top of it. The problem tooth is gently filed to allow adhesion and a special light is then used to harden and bond the resin to the tooth underneath. Crowns Crowns which are sometimes called caps can be used to make a crooked smile look straighter, in place of veneers. They are custom made to repair broken or damaged teeth and sometimes to cover an implant. The existing tooth surface is reduced and covered with a crown made from porcelain or another durable material. Cosmetic Contouring If your teeth are uneven, pointy, or have ragged edges cosmetic contouring may be for you. The dentist can create the smile you want sometimes by simply shaving away small areas of the teeth. Gum Re-contouring If teeth appear shorter than they should or if one tooth is longer than the rest it may be that gum coverage is a problem. Re-contouring is a minimally invasive way to correct the gum line and enhance the smile.

LO- RES

Whether looking to rejuvenate your smile, matching to your existing smile or totally reinventing your smile, our specialist restorative team ensures that your teeth, gums, lips and face all complement each other. This could involve implants, crowns, veneers, bridges, gum re-contouring, white fillings and cosmetic whitening. The results can be amazing and life changing for some people!

Your smile says so much about you – What’s yours saying? A smile can be so inviting, sexy and confident.

Implants Implants are a safe and permanent way of replacing missing teeth or restoring a smile. Titanium anchor posts are implanted in to the jawbone and the covered with a natural looking crown on top. Bleaching Professional in office tooth whitening is an effective way of whitening the teeth and brightening your smile. The hygienist will descale and polish away superficial stains first and then a lightening agent will be applied to the teeth and then a special lamp will be used to optimize results. White Fillings White composite filling material sticks firmly to the tooth giving it strength. By replacing old silver amalgam fillings with white fillings or inlays you can restore the natural healthy appearance of the tooth and when colour matched correctly the white filling can appear invisible. Replacing silver fillings with white ones can be the first steps to creating a beautiful smile. Reliable. Simple. Versatile. At Tracey Bell we don’t just say we are using the best systems, products and laboratories, we really are. Tracey and the team travel the World to attend dental conferences and speak with product suppliers and manufacturers who are making the most advanced and innovative, evidence based products.

Move Over Ugly Betty!
Dentistry is evolving; it’s more than just drilling and filling. It’s about listening to and educating individuals about good oral and general health and offering choices. Beautiful Smiles can be created for everyone no matter what age you are or how bad you might think your teeth or dentures are, we can work wonders to reinvent your smile. All of the staff at Tracey Bell Craigend understands the need for a person to express how they feel about their smile and to express what they would like to improve or change and feel understood.

even notice you are in treatment and it won’t disrupt your lifestyle. • Remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss • Change aligners every two weeks • Your teeth move little by little • Regular progress checks with your dentist or orthodontist • Results often in 12 months

WHAT ELSE CAN BRACES DO?
Of course it is not just for aesthetic reasons that we ‘correct’ or straighten teeth, children and adults should have their teeth, bite and jaws checked to help diagnose irregularities and prevent problems such as jaw or facial abnormalities and also affected speech.

Orthodontics
Braces and aligners are a way of straightening teeth and perfecting smiles, but it’s not just the equipment and technology that make these treatments a success. The whole team including the dentists, nurses, hygienists and patient co-ordinators are vital in educating the patient from young children to older patients in what to expect from their treatment and in choosing the best treatments to suit their lifestyle.

The British Dental Health Foundation Mouth Cancer Survey 2008 found that around one in five people have never even heard of mouth cancer. Early detection can save lives and Tracey Bell will be introducing a brand new oral cancer screening test to the practice early in 2009. Research indicates heavy smokers and drinkers are at a higher risk of contracting oral cancer, so advice is to try and quit smoking and not drink excessively. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables that are high in beta- carotene like bananas, peppers, carrots, cabbage, broccoli and beans can help to reduce the risk of oral cancer and other types of cancer. During 2008 we have researched the very best

testing equipment at the New York Dental Conference and the World Health Anti Aging Congress, where all of the latest health screening products are exhibited and demonstrated. Oral cancers can appear as small white or red patches on the tongue or in the side of the mouth or even present as mouth ulcers that don’t seem to clear up. Regular checks are essential and your dentist will always look out for anything unusual, but the new screening device which consists of having a special dye put into the mouth and an advanced technology light to highlight any potential lesions, will be the latest new addition to Tracey Bell and available to all of our patients, it could be a life saver.

So we hope you will agree that the Tracey Bell SmileScription Team have got your best interests at heart on all counts. Education, ethics, evidence based results, highly skilled dentists, hygienists, nurses and the most advanced technology and products in the World and we hope that you are proud to be a part of it!

Keep Smiling!

Medical Microdermabrasion
– polish for perfection
Microdermabrasion is one of the top five treatments in the UK and USA for both men and women. It does not involve any downtime and it is non invasive, so it can be done anytime, make up can be applied straight after and the results are instant. As we age our skin cell turnover slows down as does collagen and elastin production, at a younger age the skin turnover rate is approximately 4 weeks. The skin cell is produced, matures and is sloughed off within that time. This is why younger skin retains moisture and has a fresh glow. As we age, the turnover rate slows down to around 6 weeks. Older skin does not hold moisture which makes it appear dry and dull so we sometimes attempt to rehydrate and apply extra moisturiser which tends to pack down the old cells and slows down the turnover rate.

“Superficial chemical peels are one of the fastest growing treatments in the cosmetic market, not just in the USA but in the UK too. It is one of the top five treatments for men and women but not all peels are equal, “says Tracey Bell “This is why I have spent 12 months with my skin care development team, which is headed up by a respected UK dermatologist, in research and development to produce a range of peels for Rejuvenation, Purification, Age Management and the Moth Bean which is the ultimate anti-ageing peel and extremely specialist.”

Having a peel used to involve quite a lot of downtime, redness, and irritation and occasionally time off work or missing out on social events, but now you can literally have a peel in your lunch time and go back to work. It is now hailed as an integral part of the maintenance and regime for anti-ageing because the benefits of having regular peels are; an increase in collagen and elastin stimulation, also deep cellular penetration to accelerate cell turnover, all of which improve texture, tone and skin health in the fight against anti-ageing. Suitable for people of all ages from teenagers with acne prone skin to older people with mature skin. The Moth Bean Peel contains an extract known as vigna aconitifolia which is like a botanical version of Vitamin A. The small brownish bean from North West India contains between 21 -34% protein and it is combined with trichloracetic acid for deep cell penetration. This ground breaking blended formula has been praised for antioxidant properties and its free radical scavenging strengths. The ultimate in anti-ageing, great for reducing sun damage, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes, it leaves the skin looking and feeling radiant.

mote collagen, elastin and cell nutrition and speeds up cell production. The results are instantly healthier and fresher skin with better surface quality. Microdermabrasion is recommended at regular intervals of once every 2 or 3 months as part of an effective skincare maintenance and regime. It can also be highly effective in the reduction of fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, black heads, open pores, stretch marks and skin blemishes and it can be used on most parts of the face and body.

In these cases a course of treatment would be recommended by your therapist for the optimum results. To speak to someone about how microdermabrasion could improve your skin simply call 01624 618727 or email us at reinvent@traceybell.co.uk
