If you are considering facial aesthetics treatment but have concerns, please read on.
We are coming towards the end of 2019 and some of our Woking patients will no doubt already be looking ahead to the new year, making resolutions and determinations for 2020.
Personal improvement is likely to be high on the list and it is no coincidence that this time of year sees a surge in gym memberships and related activities.
We also often see an increase in cosmetic dental and facial aesthetic treatments at AJ Dental around this time of the year too. We have covered, and will continue to do so, a lot of dental topics recently, but today, we take a look at a popular anti wrinkle treatment which sometimes receives somewhat negative publicity; namely Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is one of the most widely used wrinkle reduction treatments currently available. It is a purified ‘toxin’ that is used in small enough doses to render it perfectly safe if used correctly. It acts on the facial muscles, stopping them from contracting and thereby reducing the wrinkles of the face.
The Botox serum is injected just under the skin using a fine needle and should cause no significant discomfort. Patients may just feel a small pricking sensation in the treatment area.
Results can usually be seen within a week or so of the treatment and last for several months. This period will depend on individual circumstances and our Woking facial aesthetic team will be able to advise the expected length of the results.
