The benefits of Botox for wrinkle reduction

If you have unwanted wrinkles, lines, or folds on your facial skin, Botox can be the perfect treatment. Hertford Dental Care offers a selection of facial aesthetics treatments delivered by highly-skilled and fully-qualified practitioners.

For a long time, plastic surgery was the only real option for rejuvenating the facial skin. There were three issues with this: first, it was very expensive, putting treatment out of reach of many people. Secondly, it came with quite a lot of down time for recovery, which could be uncomfortable and forced you to take time off work. Thirdly, all surgery has risks attached – they are very minimal if you visit a skilled and well-respected cosmetic surgeon, but nevertheless they exist and were enough to put some people off seeking treatment.

The advent of Botox and other facial aesthetics treatments has moved the goal posts. Now it is possible to enjoy the benefits of wrinkle reduction without any down time. Treatment involves the use of a purified form of the botulinum type A toxin, delivered in gel form via pain-free injection here at our Hertford clinic.

On average it takes between five and ten minutes to treat one area of the face with Botox at Hertford Dental Care. This means that you can pop in for treatment on your lunch break and return to work as normal straight afterwards.

Unlike dermal fillers, which have results that are immediately visible, it takes between four and seven days for the full effects of treatment with Botox from Hertford Dental Care to be seen. Whilst this is not a permanent treatment, depending on the area involved the results will last between three and six months before you need to return to our Hertford clinic for a repeat procedure.

At Hertford Dental Care, Botox can be used to treat a number of areas, including:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Smoker’s lines
