Botox has something of a chequered reputation. Used subtly, it can enhance the appearance of the face, giving the skin a smoother overall look. Used to excess, it creates the ‘frozen face’ we’ve seen on many celebrities chasing everlasting youth, who are no longer able to change their expression beyond the permanently startled.
Getting the right treatment
How can someone make sure they get the right level of treatment with Botox in Burnham? One way is to go to a clinical professional. Botox treatments can be given by a wide range of health and beauty professionals, and it is also a field that dentists are increasingly working in, such as those at The Dental Surgery Burnham in Burnham.
It may initially seem a strange line of work for a dental surgery to offer but in many ways, it makes sense: dentists study facial anatomy for five years in order to qualify, so they have intimate knowledge of the complex muscle structure of the face. This means that they know just where to inject the Botox in Burnham to get the most subtle and impactful result, avoiding the startled bunny look. They also are used to safely handling injections and intricate clinical procedures.
Benefits of Botox in Burnham
Botox is a non-surgical procedure, so there’s no need for general anaesthetic or going under the knife. This makes it much more affordable than a facelift and without the long recovery time.
It’s also quick and simple – the procedure takes about 10 minutes and patients can go about their daily business straight afterwards.
How it works
The clinician administering the Botox in Burnham will inject the solution into the areas selected to be treated. This could include: frown lines on the forehead, wrinkles around the eyes and eyebrows and those around the mouth.
The solution blocks the nerve impulses of the wrinkled muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and the skin to smooth out.
It takes 4–7 days for the treatment to have full effect, and it needs to be repeated around every three months to maintain the same appearance.
