As we age our skin finds it harder to rejuvenate and starts to reflect a lifetime of being exposed to the elements and our choice of diet and lifestyle. The resulting fine lines and wrinkles around your face can make you feel older than you really are, but luckily quick and easy solutions are available.
In addition to our comprehensive range of dental treatments at St Mary's House Dental, we offer aesthetic treatments to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and make your face look younger and refreshed.
Botulinum toxin is a safe and effective treatment that has been used for more than 25 years. A tiny amount of this purified protein and a tiny amount is injected directly into facial muscles, effectively making then less active and thus softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is especially suited to foreheads and those sensitive areas around the lips and eyes.
Patients tend to see an improvement after just one treatment, and the effects can last up to four months. This safe, straightforward procedure can even be done in your lunch hour, and treatment will leave your face looking natural and more relaxed.
We place the Botox in targeted areas to block the signal from the nerve to the nerve endings. So when you laugh or frown, your skin looks and feels smoother.
The area we treat will appear smoother with less wrinkles, lines and creases. This should last for about three to four months. You can also have top-up treatments to prolong the effects. Please be aware that the treatment will not affect any static wrinkles that are not linked to facial contraction.
You should notice the changes within around seven days after your treatment. But this does vary from patient to patient, so it could take between two to three weeks for you to see the full effects.
The procedure is quick, safe and virtually pain-free. We use a fine needle to inject a tiny amount of Botox into several locations in your face.
Please contact us through the web form or alternatively by phone. We will get back to you as soon as possible to help you with whatever your query may be.
