Many people have heard of the term Botox but not everyone understands exactly how it works. Botox injections were originally given to Hollywood stars and other celebrities who would appear forever young whilst the rest of us found that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, neck and forehead began to appear over time. Now Botox injections are available for everyone. They are safe, effective and they are affordable and here at Sandygate dental we are pleased to offer Botox injections under the careful administration of our dentist in Sheffield.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox or botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin which is injected directly into the target muscle to block the release of neurotransmitters that cause the muscles to contract. The injection does not stop muscles from moving if done correctly rather it temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and when you speak or move your face. With Botox you can still convey your feelings so when you frown or raise your eyebrows and when you smile you are still able to carry out these actions naturally however your face does not move as much when you do so, therefore the lines and wrinkles are less visible.
If you are considering Botox for the first time, speak to our dentist in Sheffield here at Sandygate Dental and discuss what you are looking for from your injections. The procedure itself does not take longer than 5-minutes and there is no need for local anaesthetic. The effects can be seen within a week. Botox injections are safe to use and have been available for the public for many decades and carried out by our trained dentist in Sheffield you can rest assured that you will achieve beautiful and effective results.
The most commonly sought after Botox treatment is usually on the forehead where most people acquire their first lines or wrinkles. You may wish to begin with treating your forehead and over time once you are comfortable with the procedure you can talk about including additional treatments to improve your facial aesthetics and restore youthfulness and self-confidence. Botox injections help you achieve all this whilst maintaining a natural appearance.
How long do the results last?
The effects of Botox are not permanent. The effects of Botox normally last around 3 or 4 months but this can vary between patients. Some patients find that the effects last between 4 and 6 months whilst others feel that after 2 months the effects begin to disappear. Here at Sandygate dental we feel you should wait around 3 to 4 months after which you can speak to our dentist in Sheffield and find out about undergoing the procedure again.
