Botox with dental work? Why not!

Botox has proven to be a major game-changer in the world of aesthetic medicine. However, the thought of your dentist offering Botox injections may be strange at first. A service that was once reserved for other medical professionals, such as a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon, is now becoming more and more popular as an optional cosmetic treatment at your dentist’s office.

botox-in-hertfordIf you are thinking about having Botox in Hertford for the first time, there are actually some important benefits to choosing your dentist. At Hertford Dental Care, our dentists have a good knowledge of the anatomy of the face because they’re constantly working on the jaws which support the tooth structures. Dental training involves much more than just the teeth – it requires a deep understanding of all facial areas. What this means is, we know just about all there is to know about the human face from the chin to the forehead.

A cosmetic dentist, in particular, is very attentive to the symmetry of the mouth and facial structure and is trained to make various cosmetic enhancements. Choosing a dentist for Botox in Hertford means you have a trustworthy professional who understands facial muscles and nerves and is more familiar with injections in these areas than any other healthcare professionals.

Botox is the brand name of botulinum toxin, a purified injectable protein used to smooth out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes and the area between the lips and the nose. Botox prevents wrinkling in these areas by slowing down the movements that stimulate your facial muscles. Ten days after treatment the skin above the treated area smooths out, making wrinkles and fine lines less noticeable. The effects of Botox can last up to four months, after which repeated treatment will be needed.

At Hertford Dental Care, we only use high-quality products that have been tried and tested over the years. Our Botox injections are stored properly in a pharmaceutical fridge and administered with very fine needles to ensure maximum comfort for our patients.

Where to find trustworthy Botox in Hertford?

If you are thinking about having Botox in Hertford for the first time, and want to avoid the pitfalls that can happen when cosmetic facial procedures are not being administered by a trusted medical practitioner, then your dentist could be the answer.

Here at Hertford Dental Care, Botox is applied by the practitioners you already trust with your mouth.

We are already using our skills and extensive training to help you make the most of your smile with dental treatments, so it makes sense to us to extend that quality of service to the face around the smile.

Botox-in-HertfordAt Hertford Dental Care, our dentists have spent many years studying and practising to acquire a deep and extensive knowledge of the muscles, bones, tendons, nerves and organs of the face and neck. We cannot practise good dentistry without this knowledge, or without the skills of using implements in a gentle and accurate fashion. Who could be better placed to deliver effective and natural-looking facial aesthetic treatments?

In Hertford, Botox is a long-lasting, but not permanent, method for smoothing out facial wrinkles that develop as we age and our facial skin naturally loses the fat underneath it and the collagen within it.

Botox is the brand name of a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin. It comes in gel form and is administered with a painless injection. In Hertford, Botox works by temporarily inhibiting the nerve impulses that tell the tiny facial muscles to tighten, and thus they are forced to relax, smoothing out the skin lying over them. Here in Hertford, Botox is used to reduce crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes, smoking lines around the mouth and frown lines between the eyes.

It takes between five and ten minutes to treat each area. Because Botox works by inhibiting impulses from the nerves, this is not an instant-effect facial aesthetic treatment. You can expect your face to slowly change over the next seven days as the full results appear.

In Hertford, Botox treatments last up to six months, and you can have top up treatments about three months after your initial treatment.

A younger-looking face

When you have facial rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal fillers, in Hertford with a dentist, you can rest assured you are being treated by someone with a thorough understanding and experience of facial anatomy.

After all, part of a dentist’s seven-year training is to gain an intimate knowledge and understanding of how the muscles, nerves, tendons, organs and skin of the head, face, mouth and neck work together.

In Hertford, dermal fillers are a wonderful complement to other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as Botox. Botox works by temporarily paralysing muscles to smooth out wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers work by plumping out the skin to smooth out folds, wrinkles and hollows that naturally form as a part of ageing.

As we age, we lose the collagen in our skin that plumps it out, and we also gradually lose production of a vital chemical called hyaluronic acid. This acid forms the bonds between skin cells that make them appear to glow and it also helps the cells retain moisture. We product it naturally, so dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, are simply replacing something that used to be in our skin anyway. It can be used to plump out areas such as the lines that run between our noses and mouths, or wrinkles over the top lip that come from smoking, as well as crow’s feet and also hollows in the cheeks.

Dermal fillers in Hertford can also be used to replace the collagen in our skin, the production of which also naturally reduces as we age. Collagen provides structural support to skin, muscles, tendons and bone.

In Hertford, dermal fillers are administered via injection.The dentist will use their skill to inject just the right amount to produce a natural boost to your face, plumping and smoothing to make you look healthier and more yourself, and not as if you had had ‘work’ done.

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.

dermal-fillers-in-HertfordshireDermal fillers

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.

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.

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.

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.
