Turn back the clock with youthful results from Botox Kent
If you’re looking to enjoy a youthful appearance, consider visiting us at Stangrove Court Dental Practice for Botox treatments in Kent. Not only will this incredible treatment help to combat the visible signs of ageing but it will also help to soften your features and create a fuller look overall.
Patients can enjoy noticeable results in a short period of time without having to resort to major cosmetic surgery or costly procedures. Botox Kent is often administered by a professional dental practitioner as they have in-depth knowledge about the anatomy of a patient’s face and can effectively administer treatment as a result.
For Botox Kent treatments, botulinum toxin type A is administered to the patient and is injected directly into the problem areas.
Where can I use Botox to target wrinkles on my face?
For those patients hoping to combat signs of ageing, Botox can be applied to treat lines on your forehead, around your eyes such as crow’s feet and even wrinkling on your chin area. Facial aesthetics can also be used to help reverse the signs of ageing around your neck and even under your arms to treat excessive sweating.
How is Botox administered during the treatment process?
Patients may find some solace to hear that the treatment is not only clinically proven to be safe but that it causes no major pain or discomfort. In some cases it may cause feelings of minor discomfort at best.
To administer the treatment, a small, fine needle is used that will insert protein directly into the patient’s skin. The needle is placed directly into the muscle under the skin which helps to block any nerve signals in the area for a short period of time. Once the protein has been fully absorbed, the patient’s muscle is known to relax and will result in a more youthful appearance following the treatment. Patients are encouraged to continue seeking treatments as the effects are temporary and will not last longer than a few months at most. After the effects of the protein have worn off, the patient’s appearance will revert back to its original state.
So, how long do the results actually last?
For those patients wondering how long the effects of Botox will last, on average it is around 3-4 months. In some cases it may last longer for patients. For patients that use Botox to treat excessive sweating, they have known to enjoy the results for a period of 6 months lasting as long as 12 months in some cases.
What kind of aftercare is advised for patients following Botox treatments?
All patients are advised to try to avoid touching the treated areas on their face for at least a day following Botox treatments. This includes applying skin treatments such as facials either at home or at a spa. Derma rollers are also not advised as this could interfere with receiving the full effects of the treatment.
In addition to avoiding skin treatments, patients are also advised to not exercise or partake in any physical activity following treatment or consume alcohol for at least 24 hours.
