Anti-ageing treatments at your dentist

If you have been worried about the appearance of lines or have noticed more wrinkles on your face, at our practice we offer procedures to patients who are looking for non-surgical ways to achieve amazing results. One of the treatments we offer to our patients is Botox.

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, comprises injections that smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Examples of these include frown lines, crow’s feet, upper lip lines, bunny lines and vertical neck lines. Botox can also be used to treat jowls and the jawline, give a non-surgical brow lift and can even be used to treat underarm and forehead sweating.

Most individuals can have Botox, however, there are some circumstances where Botox injections may not be recommended. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is not advised to have this particular treatment, also if you are taking some specific medicines. In addition Botox should be avoided by those who are unwell or have a skin infection.

How does Botox work?

Getting Botox is a quick procedure which only takes a few minutes. It is important that your face is also cleaned before starting the treatment. Once this is done, a small needle is used to inject Botox into the target areas and there is no need for anaesthesia. You may feel slight discomfort, but this shouldn’t last long. Following the treatment, it is recommended that the site which has been injected with the solution is not rubbed for at least 24 hours, to avoid the Botox spreading to another area.

You should start to see the full results of the treatment within 7 to 14 days and the effects of Botox can last up to six months, but, with this being a temporary measure, if you are looking for long-lasting effects, it is recommended that you have the procedure again after a prescribed period. However, after a while the lines and wrinkles will appear to be less severe as the Botox will cause the muscles to shrink.
