Many people don’t realise you can go to a dentist for Botox treatment, but if you think about it you will realise that it makes a lot of sense: a dentist’s main focus is on the face, so they have extensive knowledge of facial muscles and structure. Dentists are experienced in fine, delicate work, so you can trust them to perform Botox injections in a precise and professional manner. Here at Centre for Dental Excellence, we have years of extensive medical experience and can offer you full guidance through the process of treating you with Botox in Stanmore.
What is Botox?
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which is produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It may sound scary, but it’s actually the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. The Botox is injected into the skin using fine needles, where it works to relax the facial muscles, which has the effect of reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The Botox formula works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, stopping them from forming lines. The procedure is very quick and painless, and results can be seen in just 2-4 days. The effect is not permanent and will wear off after around 4 months.
Advantages of Botox in Stanmore
There are many cosmetic advantages to Botox treatments: softening wrinkles and reducing lines, leaving your skin looking smoother and more youthful. However there are also several medical advantages to Botox: it can reduce muscle spasms, reduce excessive sweating and can be used to treat chronic headaches and migraine.
