As you get older, you’ll naturally develop wrinkles and lines on the skin of your face. If you have more than your fair share of these lines, you’ll tend to look a bit older than you really are. The things you eat and drink, your lifestyle, and your amount of exposure to the sun can all contribute to an older appearance. As well as all this, the skin tends to lose its ability to rejuvenate itself as you age.
At the Kingston Dental Clinic, we can treat this undesirable condition with a simple treatment. Botox in Kingston is a carefully-controlled injection that affects the tiny facial muscles associated with lines and wrinkles. It is a speedy procedure that can produce a more relaxed and youthful-looking face.
What does Botox in Kingston do?
Our experienced dental aesthetics team will put you at ease while they deliver your treatment of Botox in Kingston. The active ingredient in Botox is called botulinum toxin. Once this is injected into your skin, it will block the nerve impulses in the muscles which cause them to contract and create wrinkles. You’ll have smoother skin in the affected areas.
Where to apply Botox
In Kingston, Botox is often used on the most common signs of ageing:
- Crow’s feet around your eyes
- Lines along the forehead and between the eyes
- Smoker’s lines around the top lip and the mouth.
You’ll receive the injections in the relaxing surroundings of our modern-day dental practice. It usually only takes about 10 minutes to perform the procedure. Afterwards, the results will be noticeable within a few days of the injection.
Maintaining the benefits
In Kingston, Botox is a popular way to regain a smoother, more youthful facial appearance. Sometimes people can be put off the process by fears of losing skin sensitivity, or being unable to make facial expressions. These fears are usually unfounded. The injection is delivered to very specific, isolated facial muscles, and does not produce a permanent transformation. As the Botox wears off over several months, the muscles become stronger. Some patients repeat their treatments twice a year. Others only use it before important social occasions.
