As well as Botox® we can offer facial fillers, facial peels and chemical peels. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of your skin and hide the lines that are a tell tale sign of ageing. We offer a FREE consultation for all facial treatments and you can talk to our Facial Aesthetics expert in the privacy of our dental surgery with the strictest confidence.
Botox® is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin. Botox® has been used by the medical profession for many years in the treatment of muscle spasm, eyelid and facial deviation.
We associate ageing with the development and deepening of wrinkles and furrows in the skin. These lines may develop as a result of weakened dermal collagen from sun exposure or gravity. Botox® can be used to reversibly smooth and soften these muscles. By relaxing these muscles the appearance of frown lines, smile lines and the wrinkles in the skin decrease, making you look younger again. The most commonly treated areas are crow’s feet, the furrows on the forehead and frown lines.
Botox® injections can take up to 14 days to show. In most cases good results are usually obtained after a single injection. Sometimes in patients with very active facial muscles a second injection is necessary 2 weeks later. Patients can expect to have a result that lasts between 3 to 5 months.
