How to Look Younger without a Facelift

You’ve probably heard about Botox and if you’ve looked into it further, you might have heard lots of opinions. But what should you believe? We’re here to help you understand the facts about Botox and help you decide whether or not it’s for you.

Define botox

The fancy clinical name for Botox is ’botulinum toxin A’. Now, don’t panic! Toxin is a scary word and yes, technically that is what Botox is. But when administered in small portions, it is perfectly safe. Its job is to relax your facial muscles and smooth out wrinkles. There are other uses for Botox too, for example, if you suffer from hyperhidrosis (this is a posh word for excessive sweating!) it can be injected in the underarms to calm the sweat glands down. It can also help with the symptoms of motor neuron disease and teeth grinding problems. But we use it to help you experience all the benefits of a facelift without having invasive surgery.

So it isn’t dangerous then?

No! Botox has been used for decades without major problems and is perfectly safe.

How does it work?

It’s easy! Most facial lines are caused by muscle activity, but Botox reduces this. So bye bye unwanted lines and wrinkles!

A typical Botox procedure

Hate waiting? Good news – Botox is quick! Most of the time it only takes about 10 minutes. The practitioner will gently inject Botox into the targeted area and the effects should become noticeable in around two to three days. Within the first month after treatment, the results should really begin to show. They’ll stick around for about four months and then you’ll be welcomed back for top-up treatment.

Will it hurt?

The needle used in Botox is very fine, so you should hardly feel a thing. That said, you might experience some swelling and itching around the injection site immediately afterwards, but this should go down shortly.

Brighter, More Refreshed Faces with Amazing Dermal Fillers

At Advance Dental Clinic, Chelmsford, there is much more on offer than just dental treatments and we now offer a number of facial cosmetic treatments available to patients who want to revamp their appearance. The types of treatments on offer include Botox and dermal filler treatments, both of which can be provided at the practice along with the usual cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Facial cosmetic treatments

Facial cosmetic treatments available at the surgery offer you the opportunity to look both younger and healthier, with trained professionals able to enhance your appearance with Botox injections. This treatment helps to relax the muscles of the targeted area, thus smoothing out the skin and helping to prevent visible lines and wrinkles. The treatments can help a number of different areas and issues, such as:

  • Frown lines
  • Lower eyelids
  • Sides of the nose
  • Neck wrinkles
  • Upper lip lines
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Wrinkles on the forehead

Results from Botox procedures are usually noticeable within two to three days, and last upwards of six months. If you wish to repeat the treatments, you can return to the practice within three to six months.

Dermal fillers

Using a natural and biodegradable material, dermal fillers can help reverse the aging process by returning volume to the skin. The treatment helps to combat the thinning of collagen that supports the skin as it breaks down as we age. It also rejuvenates skin contours as it adds volume to the tissue. A treatment session usually last anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes and usually doesn’t require anaesthesia. The results of dermal fillers are immediate and you can experience the results of the treatment for up to a year.

Both Botox and dermal fillers are an excellent alternative to invasive surgery and can make you look several years younger!

Fabulous Facial Aesthetics – Rejuvenate Your Skin for the Summer

With recent advancements in facial aesthetic treatment, we are able to offer our patients not only the very latest cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics but also the very latest facial treatments too.

The science of ageing

To understand how these treatments work, we first need to understand how age impacts appearance. As we grow older, a natural layer of collagen in our skin gradually breaks down and makes our skin sag. A lifetime’s worth of muscle activity will also produce crow’s feet and other wrinkles. Thankfully, we offer two separate treatments for these two problems which provide the same solution: more youthful looking skin.

For plumping skin: dermal fillers

Dermal fillers restore skin volume and, as an added bonus, help smooth out lines in the face. The results are immediate and the procedure, which simply consists of injecting dermal filler into the problem areas, usually takes half an hour. Filler products are based on naturally occurring acids in the body.

For banishing crow’s feet and wrinkles: Botox

If muscle movement causes wrinkles, what is the best way to stop wrinkles? Stop the muscle movement! Or, rather, calm it: There is a myth, mostly perpetuated by late 90s & early 21st century sitcoms, that Botox produces a ‘frozen face’ effect in people, but this is simply not true. It relaxes muscle movement, it doesn’t outright halt it.  As with dermal fillers, the procedure is very quick. Most sessions take about 10 minutes! Improvements will become recognisable after a few days, and further improvements will continue to surface for about a month after that.

Say Bye-Bye to Wrinkles with Our Amazing Anti-Ageing Treatments

A youthful, fresh and smooth complexion is something we all dream of and now you can roll back the years and preserve your youthful looks with the help of Botox, an amazing anti-ageing treatment available at Advance Dental Clinic.

What is Botox?

Botox is a very popular anti-ageing skin treatment, which smoothes the complexion by preventing muscle contraction and subsequently the development of lines and wrinkles. Botox is actually short for Botulinum toxin type A. Although Botox is a toxin, it is used in such small quantities that it is completely safe when administered by a trained professional.

Botox can address a number of common age-related problems, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Laughter lines
  • Frown lines

Botox treatment

Botox treatment is very straight-forward. Botox is injected into specific areas of the face using a very fine needle. The injections are painless and the treatment is quick. In most cases it takes around 30-40 minutes. We will discuss the procedure with you and pinpoint the problem areas and we will also answer any questions you have about the procedure or the treatment in general.

What happens after treatment?

Botox is a quick and simple treatment and there is no recovery time. The results are visible almost instantaneously, although they will become more obvious after a few days. There is no need to take time off work and you can get back to your normal daily regime straight after treatment.

Botox is not a permanent treatment and the effects usually start to wear off after around six months. After this period of time, you can top-up your treatment with another session.

Botox is a great idea for people who want to look younger and benefit from a healthy glow without putting themselves through invasive treatment. Botox treatment is quick, straightforward and safe and the results only last six months, giving control over your look. At Advance Dental Clinic in the heart of Chelmsford, we have expertise in facial treatments and always strive for a natural, fresh look.

About Botox and fillers

Botox and fillers are popular anti-ageing treatments that help to combat visible signs of ageing without the need for invasive action. Both these treatments produce temporary results and the treatment process is quick and simple. If you have dull, ageing skin or you’re searching for a non-surgical solution for wrinkles, folds and facial lines, Botox and fillers could be the answer.

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which helps to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and lines by relaxing the facial muscles. Botox blocks signals to the facial muscles, which prevents them from contracting. Treatment sessions take around 10-30 minutes and the results usually last up to 5 months. It is possible to prolong the results by undergoing repeat sessions. Botox is injected into targeted areas of the skin and the injections should not be painful, but we understand that many clients feel apprehensive around needles and we can apply topical anaesthetic to prevent any discomfort.

Fillers are also injected into the skin. They create more youthful looks by adding volume to the skin to smooth wrinkles and prevent sagging. Fillers can also be used to define the cheekbones and jaw line and to create fuller lips. Like Botox, filler treatment only takes around 20 minutes and the results last between 6 and 9 months.

We are proud to have experienced facial aesthetics practitioner Monica Berrange as part of our team. Monica strives for natural looking results and has been administering treatments for many years, so you can rest assured that you are in the best hands. Call us today to book an appointment!
