Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, a sign that you’ve seen your fair share of summers and have experience on your side. But sometimes the mismatch between the youthfulness you feel on the inside and the wrinkles on the outside can leave you feeling less than confident. That’s where we can help at our dental practice, Centre of Dental Excellence in Stanmore. Botox is a cosmetic procedure we provide to give our patients a younger, fresher appearance that still looks natural.
Botox is the brand name for a drug made from botulinum toxin type A. Used in small doses Botox can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. It works by targeting the nerves that tell certain facial muscles to contract, specifically the muscles that are responsible for your wrinkles. By stopping the signals that get sent down these nerves, Botox in Stanmore causes the muscles to relax and the wrinkles to fade.
Botox is injected under the skin of the face using very fine needles. Discomfort is minimal, which means pain relief is usually not necessary. The entire procedure only takes 5–10 minutes, with the effects gradually materialising over the course of about a week. This means not only are the final results natural in appearance but they also come about subtly. Botox in Stanmore in the hands of our highly trained practitioners offers patients a non-surgical means to achieve a younger look.
Botox is not a permanent treatment. This means you can give it a go and if it isn’t for you, simply wait out the effects. On the other hand, if the results of Botox in Stanmore are just what you’re looking for, then all you need to do is book in for some top-up treatment with us to keep that new look. Botox lasts on average about three months before the effects begin to fade.
