Did you know that from as young as 25 years old, our bodies produce less of the vital building blocks that give us beautiful, tight, dewy-looking skin? It seems shockingly young, but deep in the dermis, where new skin is made, there is less collagen, less elastin, less hyaluronic acid being put into our skin cells. Coupled with our propensity to hold various facial muscles in contraction, and you can see why some of us start getting deep lines in our faces from a fairly young age.
There is however, a number of ways to combat the various signs of ageing and in Stanmore, Botox is one of the most popular.
What is Botox?
Botox is the brand name for the purified proteins from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It was first developed for use against excessive sweating. If it is injected into sweat glands, it stops them producing so much sweat. But then some observant scientist noticed that Botox also worked on the muscles, preventing them from contracting and thus began its successful use as an anti-ageing treatment.
How Botox in Stanmore works
We use very fine needles to inject the Botox into lines in your face that have been created by muscle contractions. The Botox prevents the nerve from signalling the muscle to contract and over the 10 days after treatment, the muscle gradually relaxes, and cannot contract again.
Where to use Botox
In Stanmore, Botox at the Centre of Dental Excellence works particularly well on lines in the upper third of the face: crow’s feet, frown lines and worry lines all respond very well to treatment.
How we administer Botox
When you get Botox in Stanmore from us, you can rest assured that we will be giving you a subtle and natural-looking smoothness that will continue to allow you to make all those facial expressions that make us human, but with a youthful freshness that you have been missing.
Our consultations cost £60, but you get this money back once you have booked a treatment for Botox in Stanmore with us. We will look at your face and may suggest other treatments that would be more suitable for your issues.
