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.
How 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.
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.
