If you’re hoping to stop the clock when it comes to ageing, consider Botox Kent to create a youthful appearance at Stangrove Court Dental Practice.
This incredible treatment can help reduce lines and wrinkles on your face without any surgery. Thanks to facial rejuvenation treatments and solutions, patients can now soften wrinkles and enjoy a fuller appearance.
One of the main benefits of having Botox Kent performed by a dental practitioner is that they have in-depth knowledge of your facial anatomy and can offer professional treatment in the most effective way.
When it comes to Botox Kent treatments, botulinum toxin type A is commonly used, which is essentially an aesthetic solution that is injected into the patient’s skin.
Which areas on a patient’s face can be treated with Botox?
Patients can seek treatment in several different areas, including their foreheads, lines visible on their frown, possible crow’s feet and any wrinkling around the chin. Other areas Botox can also be used to treat include necklines, underarms and hands for excessive sweating.
How does Botox actually work, and what happens during the application?
If you’re wondering about what happens during the Botox appointment, patients may find peace of mind knowing the treatment is straightforward and clinically proven to be safe. The good news is that the treatment is not known to cause any major pain or discomfort.
A fine needle is used to administer a small amount of protein. The needle is injected directly into the patient’s face, targeting the muscle under the skin. The areas that are targeted are usually where the wrinkles appear the most such as on your forehead or around your eyes. Some patients have noticeable wrinkles present around their mouth area which they wish to target.
The protein present in the syringe will help to temporarily block any nerve signals sent to the patient’s muscle by the brain. Once the protein is absorbed into the skin, the patient’s muscles will relax and result in a more youthful appearance. As the effects of the toxin in the protein are only temporary, the results will eventually wear off and the patient’s appearance will revert to its original state. It is for this reason that patients are advised to continue having treatments at regular intervals in order to maintain the effects.
How long will the results from the Botox treatment last?
If you’re wondering how long the treatment will last, the answer is around 3-4 months in total. For the best results, it is recommended that you have treatments at regular intervals.
For those patients who turn to Botox to treat excessive sweating, those results often last around 6-12 months.
What kind of aftercare advice or habits is recommended following Botox?
Patients are advised to refrain from touching the treated area for at least 24 hours following the procedure. Skin treatments such as facials or even derma rollers will also need to be avoided during this time. It is also recommended that patients avoid having alcohol or doing any physical activity such as going to the gym.
