If you are prone to reminiscence and reflection, you may have found yourself in that mildly clichéd state of wishing ‘you knew what you know now’ back in some flutter of youth. Actually returning to that time period with one’s current experiences would probably be horrifying. Years of relationships undone, loved ones now strangers and those cherished memories tarnished by little imperfections you mercifully forgot. Thankfully, we at Devonshire Square Dental Studio in the city of London don’t manipulate the flow of time. We can, however, make it look like you can! With our anti-wrinkle treatments, you can look youthful without having to return to the years of teen angst and petty rivalries.
What is Botox?
Botox is a toxin which, if applied to the facial region in tiny amounts, is perfectly harmless, can relax the muscles of the face and will lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Botox can also be used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including muscle spasms and motor neuron disease, but it is most commonly associated with aesthetic procedures.
A typical procedure
Well, you won’t need to set aside much time for it! A normal Botox procedure will take roughly 10 minutes, meaning you can usually fit a Botox session in over a lunch break. We simply need to inject the Botox wherever it is you want to feel the Botox’s effect. You should notice a change in appearance after about 2 or 3 days, with further improvements surfacing for about a month after application. These results will then sustain themselves for roughly 4 months. If you like the results, you simply need a Botox top up a few months down the line!
Does it hurt?
Some minor discomfort is possible, but we use a very fine needle so it shouldn’t really.
Will my face appear frozen!?
Thankfully no: Botox relaxes but does not paralyse muscle movement, meaning you will be more than able to dramatically flex that youthful looking face however you want. Effects of the treatment will be visible for about 3 days after Botox application, but you should have no problems after that.
