What are facial aesthetics?

Facial aesthetics Kent are often referred to as facial rejuvenation and these are non-surgical procedures which aim to reduce the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles and to enhance your natural beauty. We often find that the main causes of ageing are stress from hectic work schedules, lifestyle choices such as smoking, over-exposure to the sun, the use of sun-beds and bad diet. If you are looking to get facial aesthetics in Kent then book an appointment with our expert advisers at Stangrove Court Dental Practice who will be more than happy to assist you with your needs and requirements.


What types of facial aesthetics are available?

There are a number of different facial aesthetics Kent available and one of the most popular procedures that we perform is Botox. Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, comes in the form of an injection and is designed to relax the muscles in your face and to smooth out the lines and wrinkles. So how does Botox work? The Botox stops the nerves from sending signals to the muscles by paralysing the targeted muscle. This stops the muscle from moving, therefore reducing the wrinkles and causing them to relax and soften. The most common area where you can inject Botox is on your forehead, around the eyes and also into frown lines.

The benefit of getting Botox is that it is a quick and easy procedure. When you attend your initial consultation to get facial aesthetics Kent, your specialist will inform you that the procedure will take a few minutes. You will not need any localised anaesthetic as you will experience minimal discomfort at your appointment. Once you have had your Botox injection it will take about 14 days to see the full results. Your specialist will advise you on the aftercare, but it is important to follow the advice that you are given to avoid any complications. You will be told to stop drinking alcohol for at least the first week after you have had the injection and if you take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication you will need to stop this prior to your treatment. This is to prevent any sort of bruising to the targeted area. Also you must ensure that you avoid rubbing the targeted muscle in order to prevent the Botox from spreading to other parts of the face.

Botox is not a permanent solution and you will start to see the effects wearing off three to six months after your treatment. If you continue repeating the treatment you will see that over time the wrinkles will be naturally less harsh and will have reduced in size. Moreover Botox is available at an affordable price, but do ensure that you undertake thorough research and book your appointment at an approved and qualified practice to ensure that you get the best results and the best experience. Our specialists will be more than happy to discuss payment options that are available with you at your initial consultation.
