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.
At 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.
