Anti-wrinkle treatments

Smoothing out laughter lines and wrinkles is really as simple as walking into a dentist’s surgery. They may take years to create, but wrinkles can be wiped away in seconds. Wrinkles form due to our skin getting older and losing that youthful elasticity. They can also be caused by sun damage. At our clinic in Kingston, Botox is fast becoming a standard way of vanquishing those unwanted lines.

Botox in KingstonHere at Kingston Dental Clinic, we want to make sure our patients get the highest standard of care and attention. Our aim for our patients is to create a natural result, retaining a normal expression but also receiving a youthful appearance.

Receiving Botox in Kingston has never been so simple. We can organise a consultation with you where we can explain in detail what is undertaken during an anti-ageing treatment. We can often carry out the treatment on the day of consultation if that is the desire of the patient. Treatment is quick and simple and patients can return to their day to day activities immediately.

The benefits of Botox

Since Botox is a non-invasive medical procedure it makes it a popular and effective choice for an anti-ageing treatment. A small amount of botulinum toxin (Botox) is injected into the desired area, and over the next few days, it causes the muscle to relax, the result being smooth skin once more.

How often you choose to have anti-wrinkle injections is entirely your decision. Treatment usually lasts between 3-4 months and after that you it is your choice whether to have repeat injections. The effect of the Botox can vary from patient to patient. It can take between 3-5 days for the Botox to take effect and can possibly take up two weeks before the full effect can be seen. After the Botox has been injected, patients can carry on with their day. It is that fast and easy.

Botox in Kingston is a quick and convenient way to smooth out lines without the need for surgery. There is no preparation necessary and no recovery time required.  In and out in half an hour, but with years taken off.

Reduce the signs of ageing

Have you ever had that moment when you glance in the mirror and wondered “Who is that person?” “Where has the time gone?” Ah, what some of us would give to stay young forever. Unfortunately, time stops for no one, but here at Kingston Dental Clinic, we can gently counteract the tell-tale signs of ageing without the hassle or expense of surgery. As for most aesthetic treatments, when you receive Botox in Kingston, it can reinvigorate your state of wellbeing. Worry lines, frown lines, crow’s feet… these are all wrinkles caused by repetitive muscular contractions. They are difficult to prevent and almost impossible to lose after they have already been created.

Botox in KingstonWhat is Botox

At our practice in Kingston, Botox is a soft and simple approach to smoothing skin. It relaxes the muscles into which the Botox has been injected, releasing them from the furrows that have been ingrained over the years. Botox in Kingston creates a natural result, giving a smoother appearance whilst maintaining normal facial expressions.

Receiving Botox is a safe and quick procedure. It is possibly the most popular non-surgical anti-ageing treatment to date. Not does it only release the deep furrowed lines, but it can also reduce the appearance of any unwanted fine lines too. Botox is a temporary procedure and when the Botox starts to fade, the muscles regenerate their strength which can mean the return of the wrinkles.

At our practice in Kingston, Botox can be reinjected and the treatment repeated to keep you feeling and looking good. Botox will not prevent you from showing other facial expressions. An initial consultation is arranged where we can discuss and advise on whatever personal needs you wish to undertake. The treatment itself can take as little as 15 minutes and after the procedure has been completed, you can carry on with your daily routine without fuss. We can even do the treatment on the day of consultation if that is required.

So, if you have been that person looking in the mirror, then why not treat yourself to a more youthful appearance today and call Kingston Dental Clinic to arrange a consultation.

What is Botox in Kingston?

Our society is increasingly focused on looking younger for longer. The endless parade of selfies on social media offer more and more opportunities for us to present a perfect picture of ourselves. Are you happy with yours?

Here at Kingston Dental Clinic, we know from talking to our patients that cosmetic work is not just about looks. How we look deeply affects our self-esteem, confidence, relationships and sense of wellbeing. If we feel at ease with how we look, we are more relaxed with ourselves and others, and it makes so much more possible in our personal and professional lives.

Botox in KingstonWe offer Botox in Kingston as a natural extension of our existing cosmetic dental work. As highly trained medical professionals, we are well-suited to safely apply these delicate and precise treatments, to help you regain a more youthful appearance.

As dentists, we study the complex and intricate anatomy of the face for five years as part of our training. We also administer injections regularly in our practice. This knowledge really matters with Botox because it means that we know just where to place the injection for the most natural-looking effect. The aim is to do just enough to relax the muscles, but not enough to give you the frozen face look or reduce sensitivity.

How does it work?

Boxt is an anti-ageing treatment that works by injecting botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein made safe for cosmetic use, into wrinkles. This relaxes the muscles, causing the face to look smoother. Treatable areas include:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet at the side of the eyes
  • Forehead lines
  • Lines around the mouth and top lip.

The treatment takes 20-30 minutes and you will see results within a few days. The effects will start to wear off after about three months, so when this starts to happen you can book in for a top up treatment.

All you need to know about Botox in Kingston

There was a time when the thought of dentists performing Botox would have raised an eyebrow or two, but this is no longer the case. As a matter of fact, dentists are more equipped to deliver Botox injections because they deal with the head and neck region more than most doctors. Dentists are also aware of the proper ratios of lips to teeth, how much of the teeth should be visible in a full or partial smile, and how the teeth relate to the soft tissue surrounding the mouth. All these reasons make them ideal for delivering Botox injections.

Botox in KingstonAt Kingston Dental Clinic, our aim is to make our patients feel beautiful about their smile and overall appearance. For this reason, we offer non-surgical aesthetic treatments such as Botox in Kingston. This service is available to all patients, even if you are not seeking cosmetic dental treatment. Our experienced dentists are especially trained in total facial aesthetics in order to provide you with the best treatment possible.

What is Botox?

Botox (medically known as Botulinum toxin) is a very popular treatment that enables patients to obtain a more youthful and fresh appearance. Botox blocks the nerve muscles and can cause facial expression lines or wrinkles to disappear for a while. Areas that are commonly treated with Botox are frown lines located between the eyes, crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead wrinkles.

Botox is diluted by our dentist to a very controlled solution and, when injected into the muscles with a very thin needle, is almost painless. Botox injections soften deep wrinkles and the effect can last for several months. However, for optimal results, Botox injections should be repeated every few months.

What can I expect during the procedure?

Patients may feel a slight burning sensation while the solution is being injected into the skin. However, this will not last long. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and the results last from 3-5 months. Botox is appropriate for most adults who are healthy enough to receive cosmetic treatment.

A more youthful appearance

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.

Botox in KingstonWhat 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.

Facial rejuvenation

The fine lines and wrinkles in the skin of your face can cause you to look much older than you really are. Factors such as diet, lifestyle, and overexposure to the sun can contribute to a prematurely aged appearance. Plus, as time goes on, the skin has more difficulty in rejuvenating itself. At the Kingston Dental Clinic, we have a convenient treatment for this undesirable condition. Botox in Kingston is a non-surgical treatment, in which a carefully-controlled injection of a specially-formulated substance reduces the wrinkles associated with ageing. It’s a quick and effective process that can change the way you feel about your appearance.

Botox in KingstonHow Botox in Kingston works

Our dental aesthetics team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in delivering Botox in Kingston. The active ingredient – botulinum toxin – is injected into the skin. Once it’s in, it blocks the nerve impulses in the muscles associated with the wrinkles created by facial expressions. The muscles relax, smoothing out the wrinkles and leaving the skin looking more youthful.

Where it’s applied

There are several common signs of ageing that can be improved by Botox in Kingston:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Frown lines on the forehead or between the eyes
  • Lines around the mouth and top lip sometimes known as smoker’s lines.

The injections are delivered in the comfortable surroundings of our contemporary dental practice. They are a speedy treatment, only needing around 10 minutes at the most to be completed. Afterwards, you’ll notice the results within a few days of your injection.

Maintenance

In Kingston, Botox is one of the most popular ways to improve the signs of ageing. As well as leaving you looking younger, you’ll retain normal skin sensitivity, and still have the ability to make the usual facial expressions. The injection only acts on very specific, isolated muscles. It does not produce a permanent transformation. Eventually, after several months, the affected muscles will begin to regain their strength as the Botox wears off. Some patients repeat the treatment a couple of times a year. Others prefer to use it just before important social occasions or business meetings.

Let’s straighten things out

Botox injections have made a huge impact in the facial aesthetics field and are a fast-growing cosmetic treatment option here at Kingston Dental Clinic. The amount spent on Botox even exceeds that spent on breast implants or liposuction.

The thought of Botox in Kingston is foreign to many of our patient’s dental mindsets, simply because we have never been involved in these areas before. It also wasn’t long ago when dental implants were foreign to dentistry, with many dentists saying they would not get involved because it could change the mindset of trying to save teeth. When teeth whitening was first introduced into the dental market, many dentists called it malpractice. Times have changed and evolved and now these procedures are common practice in many dental clinics around the world.

Botox in KingstonWhat actually is Botox in Kingston?

Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin, which comes in the form of a purified protein. Botox in Kingston is injected into the facial muscles but surprisingly doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum toxin affects and blocks the transmitters between the motor nerves that move the muscle. There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract. When that muscle does not contract, the skin then starts to smooth out, and in three to 10 days after treatment, the skin above those muscles becomes nice and smooth. The effects of Botox in Kingston will last for three to four months, at which time our patients may need retreatment to keep the same level of effectiveness.

Where can it be used?

The areas that Botox is commonly used for smoothing of facial wrinkles are: the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes (known as crow’s feet) and around the lips. Botox in Kingston is also used to complement aesthetic dentistry cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases and also can be used on our denture patients who have trouble adjusting to their new dentures.
