What’s the difference between Botox and dermal fillers?

Although Botox and dermal fillers are both used to reverse the effects of ageing, they work in different ways. Botox is probably more well known; it’s a temporary facial aesthetic treatment that lasts around four months. Botox is used by a wide variety of people; older people may use it to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around their lips, eyes and forehead and some younger people use it to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming. The process involves injecting botulinum toxin into facial muscles to relax them, it’s the most popular world-wide cosmetic procedure and is used by many celebrities.

Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not relax the facial muscles, they are injected into the skin to make it ‘plump’. Fillers replace soft tissue and they fill in wrinkles. In addition to smoothing out the look of wrinkles, the appearance of lips can be improved with the use of dermal fillers. Hertford Dental Care says that dermal fillers are injected into the lips in order for them to become fuller, giving that perfect pout. Dermal fillers in Hertford Dental Care last for around six to 12 months before a follow up treatment is needed and they’re injected under a local anesthetic, causing minimal pain. The dermal filler treatment only takes a few minutes, however the effects are almost instant, whereas it can take up to five days to fully notice the effects of Botox.

Which one should I choose?

You may not have to choose. Botox and dermal fillers are often used to complement each other for that ultimate wrinkle free look. They work in different ways and when used together, they have much more noticeable and better results than when either treatment is used alone.

To conclude, Botox and Dermal fillers work great when used separately, it all depends on how you want your treatment to work and how long you want the results to last. For maximum results, use them together for fantastic looking smooth skin. Botox and dermal fillers in Hertfordshire Dental Care can help you to look great and feel young again.

Facial aesthetics for a more youthful appearance

If you would like to have a more youthful appearance in order to look your very best for a special occasion, such as a family wedding. You can do so without having to resort to long-term surgical procedures, at Hertford Dental Care we can help you.

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.

Hertford Dental Care is situated on Ware Road, and is open Monday to Friday from 8am, so you can pop in for Botox in Hertford while you are about your daily business. If you would like to find out more about botox or to book an appointment, you can email us on info@hertforddentalcare.co.uk, or call us on 01992 509669.

Do you want rid of those wrinkles?

Dermal fillers in Hertford may be the perfect option for you. Dermal fillers are a popular and extremely effective anti-ageing treatment, that fills in facial lines and wrinkles, and plumps up skin to make you look naturally young. Dermal fillers are pretty versatile, as they can also be used to enhance lips, and to reduce the appearance of veins in the hands. They have a similar effect to Botox; in the sense that they are used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the skin, however, they work in a different way, as Botox relaxes the muscles, whereas dermal fillers plump up the skin in the problem areas. Fillers are made from sterile hyaluronic acid gels with non-animal sources, and are used to replace the hyaluronic acid that’s lost in our own skin as we get older.

What is Botox? Hertford Dental Care Explains

Botox is by far the most popular facial aesthetic treatment around with around 6 million treatments being conducted every year.

Botox works by paralysing the underlying muscles where it is administered and as such it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

botox-treatmentsIf people suffer from excessive sweating, muscular disorders, migraines and some bowel and bladder disorders, Botox can also be used medically to treat this.

Botox (also known as botulinum toxin type A) is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

The cosmetic use of Botox has skyrocketed in recent years as many people use it to boost their confidence and to reduce the onset of wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet.

What does the treatment involve?

The procedure is administered by injection to the area being treated, e.g the forehead. There is no real healing period or recovery time needed post treatment, but it is important to note that there can be side effects associated with Botox, which should be discussed before the procedure. It is common for people to experience some slight bruising and swelling directly after the treatment because of the needle, but this can be covered up by makeup. There are no long-term side effects associated with having these kind of injections, meaning that patients can resume their normal activities straight away, and are also able to fly post treatment.

Botox is not a permanent treatment and generally the effects last up to 3-4 months. Because it is quite a fast and effective treatment, as it is a non-surgical treatment it does not require the patient to have anaesthetic. The benefit of having this treatment done by dentists is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial aesthetics and anatomy and can perform this kind of subtle work in a professional environment with an attentive manner.

Who can I trust in Hertford to help me reduce my facial wrinkles?

We have all seen the horror stories of what can go wrong with even the most simple and straightforward cosmetic facial procedures when they are not being administered by a trusted person with a history of working in the area of medicine.

Which is why we at Hertford Dental Care, offer high quality aesthetics in Hertford you can trust.

facial-wrinklesThe dentists here want you to make the most of your smile, and so it makes sense to us that not only will you want dental treatment to improve your teeth, but you will want to show that smile off in a face that is looking as fresh as a daisy.

A dentist already has the deep and extensive knowledge of the muscles, bones, tendons, nerves and organs that make up the face and neck, so we are well placed to make facial aesthetic treatments are as effective and natural-looking as possible.

In Hertford, Botox and dermal fillers are two easily-administered, long-lasting, but not permanent, ways to smooth out facial wrinkles and fill in hollows. As we age and our facial skin naturally loses the fat underneath it and the collagen within it, and these signs of ageing start to appear.

In our practice in Hertford, Botox (a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin) is delivered in gel form via a painless injection. It works by temporarily relaxing the tiny facial muscles, smoothing out the skin above. Here in Hertford, botox is typically used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet, lines from smoking, frown lines and pockets between the eyes. Each treatment area takes between five and ten minutes, and takes up to seven days to appear. The results last up to six months.

Dermal fillers work by plumping out hollows by replacing the skin’s lost collagen and hyaluronic acid. In Hertford, dermal fillers can also provide instant results. Juvéderm is both a popular, and a well-trusted system, which is delivered via a painless injection. Dermal fillers are commonly used to refresh crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines, and to plump up lips and cheeks. The instant results last between six months and a year, depending on the area being treated.

Where can I go to get Botox in Hertford?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a treatment that originated in the medical world. It was originally used to treat patients who had muscle spasms, like the kind of spasms people occasionally experience in the eye for a short period of time. However, if spasms like this recur on a regular basis or continue for a long period of time they become debilitating. Doctors noticed that an application of botulinum toxin to the spasming muscle, enabled it to relax, meaning a temporary relief to the issue of muscle spasms

botox-in-hertfordHow is Botox used cosmetically?

After the discovery of the botulinum toxin’s medical application, pioneers in facial aesthetics began to use it effectively to relax muscles within the face. By so doing the muscles would allow the skin to take back it’s shape also. Where this became particularly apparent and useful in the world of facial aesthetics is when applied to muscles in the face, it allowed them to relax, which then in some cases smoothed out wrinkles in the skin! For this reason Botox is currently used in a wide range of facial aesthetic treatments to reduce wrinkle lines on the face without the need for a surgical procedure.

Why should I get Botox in Hertford at Hertford Dental Care?

Botox is the branded name for the injectable version of the A-type botulinum toxin which has been proven to smooth over wrinkles when applied by a fully trained facial aesthetics dentist. The treatment relaxes the tiny facial muscles which are known to be responsible for wrinkles, visibly creating a softer and more youthful look.

Areas that can be treated at our practice in Hertford, include the lines across your forehead, “crows feet”, which can appear around the eyes, and the vertical frown lines which form in the gaps between your eyebrows. You can see a number of great testimonials on our website from our facial aesthetics patients.

How dermal fillers can create an instant makeover

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm produce a complete facial makeover – with results that are seen straight away. Hertford Dental Care offers professional facial aesthetics treatments using Botox and dermal fillers, designed to combat premature signs of ageing, including lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin.

dermal-fillers-in-hertfordAt our Hertford dental practice we use the popular Juvéderm system of dermal fillers, one of the most popular and most trusted brands in the world. It produces results that can be seen immediately (unlike Botox, which requires between four and seven days for results to fully develop) and can last from six to 12 months, depending on your skin type and on the area that is treated.

Facial aesthetics procedures, including dermal fillers and Botox, should only be provided by a medically qualified professional – a dentist, nurse, or doctor – who has undergone additional accredited training in aesthetics treatments.

At Hertford Dental Care we believe that a dentist is an excellent choice for dermal fillers treatments, because they have an excellent knowledge of facial anatomy and structure, and will deliver just the right amount of dermal fillers to ensure that your results look noticeable and beautiful, but also entirely natural, thus avoiding the dreaded “overdone” look. A dentist also knows the location of facial nerves in detail, which means they are a very safe option for providing facial aesthetics procedures.

Dermal fillers at Hertford Dental Care: how it works

At our Hertford dental practice we deliver dermal fillers with a pain-free injection, which only takes a few minutes to complete. In some cases there may be local anaesthetic included in the filler syringe, whilst in other cases it will be applied directly to your skin before your injection. Either way, you won’t feel a thing.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat a range of areas, and work by replacing lost hyaluronic acid and/or collagen from beneath the skin’s surface, creating a plumped up and more youthful appearance.

Common areas for treatment at our Hertford clinic include:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

For lips you will usually need to repeat treatment every six months; other areas may last longer.

Using Botox for a natural, younger look

Botox is an effective way to reduce the premature signs of ageing, without needing to undergo surgery. At Hertford Dental Care we offer a range of professional facial aesthetics treatments, which have no down time and enable you to get on with your daily routine immediately after treatment.

botox-hertfordTreatments such as Botox should only be delivered by a medically qualified professional – a dentist, a doctor, or a nurse – who has undergone additional accredited training in facial aesthetics treatments. A dentist is an excellent candidate to provide your treatment, because they have a very good knowledge of facial structure and anatomy, including knowing where all the nerves are.

Hertford Dental Care offers both Botox and dermal fillers to treat the common signs of a life well lived, including lines, wrinkles, and folds. We welcome new patients for consultations at our Hertford clinic to find out more about Botox and dermal fillers.

How Botox works

Botox is made from a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin and is delivered in gel form via a painless injection. It works by temporarily relaxing the tiny facial muscles, smoothing out the skin above.

Typical areas for treatment include crow’s feet, smokers’ lines, forehead lines, and pockets beneath the eyes. Whilst the results of Botox are not permanent, they can last up to six months – depending on the area treated – before repeat treatment is required.

At Hertford Dental Care it takes approximately five to ten minutes to treat one area. This means that you can pop in for quick treatment then get on with the rest of your day. Unlike dermal fillers, which show their effects immediately, it takes between four and seven days for the full effects of Botox treatment to be seen.

This is a great improvement on treatment times with plastic surgery, which was for a long time the only way to combat the premature signs of ageing. Surgery required significant down time for healing to take place, and carried some risks – as does any type of surgery – albeit very small ones when delivered by a professional cosmetic surgeon.

The short treatment times with Botox mean it is an excellent way to prepare for a special occasion.
