Botox and dermal fillers: the perfect wrinkle reduction treatments

Both Botox and dermal fillers are an excellent option for those seeking effective wrinkle reduction treatments without the need for surgery. Hertford Dental Care offers a range of facial aesthetics treatments designed to combat the premature signs of ageing, using either Botox, Juvéderm fillers, or a combination of both.

By having Botox treatment at Hertford Dental Care you can be assured of results that look both beautiful and natural, with no danger of the “overdone” look that some celebrities have famously fallen victim to in the past.

How does Botox work?

Botox treatment involves the use of a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin in gel form, delivered by pain-free injection at Hereford Dental Care. Many of the unwanted lines, folds, and wrinkles that start to appear as permanent fixtures on our face as we get older are caused by repeated contraction of the tiny facial muscles, which show as wrinkles or lines on the skin.

Many factors contribute to these undesirable signs of ageing, including habits such as smoking or spending a lot of time in the sun without wearing adequate sun protection.

Botox works by temporarily relaxing these facial muscles, smoothing out the skin above and lessening the appearance of the wrinkles, lines, and folds. Whilst these results are temporary, you will usually enjoy them for three to six months (depending on the area treated) before you need to come back to our Hertford dental clinic for a repeat treatment.

The delivery of Botox treatment at Hertford Dental Care is fast and pain-free. Typically it takes just five to ten minutes to treat one area, meaning that you can pop in for treatment during your lunch break. Results continue to develop over the next four to seven days, again depending on the area treated.

Botox is suitable for a number of areas, including for treating crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and pockets under the eyes.

Hertford Dental Care welcomes new patients for no-obligation aesthetics consultations to learn more about how these treatments can help them.
