facial-aestheticHere in Hertford, Botox is one solution to creating a smoother, younger look that does not have to cost the earth, or requires weeks of recovery time.

Botox is name for a product whose active ingredient is the botulinum type A toxin. Botox is used on areas where there are wrinkles to smooth them out.

Botox works by temporarily relaxing and paralysing the muscles that are holding the wrinkle in situ, by blocking the nerve impulses along them.

Botox is usually used to treat wrinkles in areas such as the frown lines (the vertical lines between the eyebrows), crow’s feet around the eyes and lines on the forehead.

It may seem strange to think of a dental practice offering treatments to reduce wrinkles, but if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Dentists have acquired a deep knowledge and understanding of the placement and uses of the facial muscles, nerves and tendons, and with this knowledge of facial anatomy, and experience gained in practising dentistry, they are able to deliver Botox in Hertford in a precise and accurate manner.

Botox treatments are quick, usually taking between five and ten minutes per area being treated. Because of the way Botox works, gradually relaxing the muscles and inhibiting the nerve impulses along them, it takes between four days and one week for the results to fully develop. However, once they appear, you can expect your new smoother face to remain that way for approximately four or so months. We recommend that in Hertford, Botox is topped up every three to six months.
