Why your dentist could be the best person to perform Botox treatment

Botox is an increasingly popular way of rejuvenating your skin, giving your back the youthful looks that the stresses and strains of everyday life can take away. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we provide a wide range of facial rejuvenation treatments, because we believe in treating the whole patient, not just their teeth.

What is Botox, and what is it used for?

botox treatmentBotox is a purified form of botulinum toxin A that has proved highly effective in rejuvenating the skin of the face, halting the signs of ageing by smoothing out unwanted lines and wrinkle. It is commonly used to get rid of wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead, as well as lifting jowls and treating pockets beneath the eyes.

Another popular use of Botox is to prevent excessive sweating, which can be a serious cause of embarrassment for those who suffer from it. If this applies to you, don’t despair – contact our Luton clinic to see how we can help.

Facial rejuvenation from a dentist?

We appreciate that not everyone would expect to find Botox and other facial rejuvenation treatments provided by a dentist. However, there are good reasons to have treatment here. As with any cosmetic procedure, it should only be performed by properly medically trained professionals – dentists or doctors.

As dentists, we have an excellent knowledge of facial anatomy, meaning we can deliver treatment safely and painlessly at our Luton clinic. This is a walk-in treatment that only takes a few minutes.

How does it work?

Botulinum toxin works by forcing the muscles of the face to relax through blocking nerve impulses. This smooths out lines and wrinkles and pockets of fat.

Treatment is non-invasive and takes just a few minutes. The results will be subtle but noticeable, and will become apparent over the course of a few days. They will usually last about four months.
