How Botox treatment can combat the signs of ageing

Your dentist might not be the first person you’d consider to provide Botox treatment. However, at Vogue Dental Care in Luton we believe that dental professionals (alongside other medically-trained individuals such as doctors) are the perfect candidates to deliver facial aesthetics therapies, thanks to their expert knowledge of facial structure and anatomy.

botox-treatmentThe dentists at our Luton practice are fully trained and qualified to provide treatment with Botox and dermal fillers, which can help to combat the signs of ageing. Facial aesthetics treatments delivered by a dentist will look entirely natural, so there is no need to fear the “frozen” look that can result from treatment by a less skilled practitioner.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin. It is delivered in a gel form and, when carried out by a properly qualified practitioner, is a quick, safe and easy way to lessen the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face.

At our Luton centre we also offer treatment with Botox to combat excess sweating, which can be a socially embarrassing and life-limiting condition for people who suffer from it.

For facial aesthetics treatment, botulinum toxin can be used to treat frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead, to lift the jowls and to treat pockets under the eyes.

Treatment is carried out here in our state-of-the-art Luton dental practice and should only take a few minutes. The Botox is carefully and painlessly injected into the small facial muscles that contract and cause lines and wrinkles. The botulinum blocks nerve impulses and forces the muscles to relax, smoothing out the skin and lessening the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Results will take a few days to appear in full and will look highly natural. Depending on the area treated, these results can last up to six months.
