Have you ever considered investing in cosmetic treatments to improve your appearance? If so, you have probably heard of Botox. Botox (short for botulinum toxin) is a quick, effective and non-surgical method to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful look Whether you have fine lines around your mouth, crow’s feet near your eyes, or just want to get rid of stubborn forehead wrinkles, Botox may be the ideal solution for you.
At Hertford Dental Care, our dentists are certified to offer Botox treatments. As dentists, we have been intensively trained in the oral and maxillo facial areas at a level higher than any other health professional. Extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the neck, the head, the face and the mouth, allow us to have a better understanding of facial muscles and their function.
Moreover, we have almost every day experience of injecting in sensitive areas of the face. Unlike other doctors, we prioritise lip to teeth ratio and we regard teeth as a frame for the rest of the face. By visiting your dentist for Botox in Hertford, you will feel more confident, given their skills and experience.
How does Botox work?
When injected, Botox blocks communication between motor nerves and facial muscle, disabling the latter from contracting. When facial muscles are unable to contract, the movements that cause the skin to wrinkle eventually stop. The effects of Botox treatment last about three to four months, after which repeated treatment will be needed.
Botox is most often used to smooth out wrinkles in the forehead, the area between the eyes, around the crow’s feet, the area around the lips and the area around the lips and nose. Except for cosmetic purposes, Botox can also be used as a treatment for bruxism, while it is also ideal for patients who experience chronic pain in the jaw.
At Hertford Dental Care, we frequently use Botox in combination with various cosmetic dentistry treatments for patients who want to feel great about their smile and their overall appearance.
