Botox Injections

Facial Aesthetics patient with Botox treatmentBotox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK.

Botox injections are particularly effective in treating lines around the eyes commonly known as Crow's Feet and is also used to treat lines on the forehead. Additionally, Botox injections are also used in improving the appearance of vertical frown lines between the eyes, also known as Glabellar lines.

Botox is safe to use and millions of treatments have been carried out Worldwide with no serious adverse events. Bruising of the skin may occur, together with some redness and swelling at the injection site. This normally lasts for less than an hour.

Botox injections work quickly and are relatively painless. The Botox relaxes the facial muscles that produce frown and laughter lines. Following the initial injection, the lines soften slightly after approximately 10 days.

In general, the effects of the Botox injection lasts for approximately 3 – 4 months following the first injection in the first year of treatment. Therefore, 3 – 4 treatments may be needed in the first year. From the second year onwards, the treatment is recommended every 6 months.

Dermal Fillers

At Benfleet Dental Centre, we use Dermal Fillers from Juvederm or Restylane.
Dermal fillers are gels containing Hyaluronic acid which is normally present in skin. As part of the ageing process, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin reduces and skin loses its elasticity. These fillers are used to “fill out” and “plump up” lines on the face such as those between the nose and the corner of the mouth.

Dermal fillers are commonly used to treat lines around the lips, both above and below the mouth, lines between the nose and mouth and also frown and laughter lines that have not completely softened with Botox injections.
Repeat treatments of dermal fillers may be necessary every 6 – 9 months to maintain appearance. This is because the fillers are metabolised by the body over time.
