Using Botox for wrinkle reduction

Botox is an effective option for wrinkle reduction without needing to have surgery. Hertford Dental Care offers a range of Botox-based treatments, which are provided by fully-trained and qualified medical professionals.

Indeed, if you are looking for Botox, wrinkle reduction, or facial aesthetics of any sort, you should always seek a medically-qualified practitioner, such as a doctor, nurse, or dentist, who has undergone accredited Botox and/or facial aesthetics training.

How treatment works

Botox is perhaps the best-known facial aesthetics procedure in the UK. It is primarily used for wrinkle reduction, although it has a range of other uses, from treating pockets under the eyes to helping to lessen the effects of excessive sweating.

Treatment involves the use of a purified form of the botulinum type A toxin, which is delivered as a gel via pain-free tiny injection here at our Hertford clinic. It works by forcing the tiny facial muscles below the surface to relax, which is excellent for wrinkle reduction because it smooths out the skin above, lessening the appearance of unwanted lines, wrinkles, and folds.

Suitable areas for treatment at our Hertford clinic include frown lines (between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (around the eyes), smoker’s lines (around the lips) and forehead lines.

The Botox injections at our Hertford clinic are pain-free, and usually take just a few minutes to complete. As a guide, it usually takes between five and ten minutes to treat one area, which means it is possible to pop in for treatment during your lunch break.

Unlike dermal fillers, which have immediately visible results, it takes a few days for the full results of treatment to emerge. Indeed, they can take between four and seven days to fully appear, getting more and more obvious every day.

Botox treatment won’t last forever, but depending on the areas treated, it can be between four and six months before you need to return to our Hertford clinic for repeat treatment.

Using dermal fillers to beat the signs of ageing

Dermal fillers are an excellent way to combat many of the common premature signs of ageing. Hertford Dental Care offers treatment with both dermal fillers and Botox to treat issues such as lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume in the facial skin and/or lips.

dermal-fillers-hertfordWhilst Botox treatment involves relaxing the tiny facial muscles below the surface of the skin, dermal fillers replace lost hyaluronic acid to plump up and rejuvenate your skin’s appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance which we being to lose gradually as we get older.

Factors such as spending a lot of time in the sun without using a high-factor sun protection cream, drinking too much alcohol, or not drinking enough water can all take their toll on the skin. Diller treatment from Hertford Dental Care can successfully reverse all of these problems.

At Hertford Dental Care we use the renowned Juvéderm form of dermal fillers, which uses sterile hyaluronic acid gel made from non-animal sources. These dermal fillers are suitable for treating a number of areas, including:

  • Naso-labial folds
  • Marionette lines around the lips
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Cheeks
  • Neck
  • Lips

Dermal fillers should always be provided by a suitably trained and qualified medical professional, such as a dentist, nurse, or doctor, to ensure that results look as natural as they do beautiful. At Hertford Dental Care we are highly experienced in delivering facial aesthetics treatments.

Hertford dermal fillers

The Juvéderm dermal fillers used at Hertford Dental Care are delivered by pain-free injection, and usually take just a few minutes to complete. Unlike Botox, the result of treatment with fillers is visible instantly, meaning you can drop in during your lunch hour, have treatment, and walk looking and feeling many years younger.

As with Botox, fillers are not permanent, but depending on the area treated the results should last between six and 12 months before you need to return to our Hertford dental clinic for a repeat procedure.

Local anaesthetic will either be applied to your skin before your injection, or will be ready-included in the syringe, ensuring the procedure is pain-free.

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.
