Botox

Botox

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract. This will make the wrinkles relax and soften. Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity unfortunately will not respond to Botox. It can also be used for lip lines and for the chin and corner of the mouth and neck. Here, at Hermes London Dental Clinic, Victoria,Botox has been successfully used to treat wrinkles and facial creases.

botox-in-victoriaHow is the procedure performed?

In Hermes London Dental Clinic, Victoria, Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is needed. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort levels. It generally takes between three and seven days to take full effect. To prepare successfully for your Botox in Victoria, it is best to avoid alcohol for one week prior to treatment. Anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.

How long does Botox last?

The effects from Botox will last around four to six months. As muscle movement gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to appear again and wrinkles will need to be re-treated. Lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax over time.

What is the difference between Botox and dermal fillers?

There is a difference between the Botox and dermal fillers. Botox relaxes the muscles, whereas dermal fillers fill and plump up lines and wrinkles to make the skin look younger. Dermal fillers usually consist of hyaluronic acid gels. As we age our skin’s natural hyaluronic acid is lost, increasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Injecting dermal fillers into the skin acts to replace the hyaluronic acid that is lost over time. Dermal fillers can also be used for lip enhancement and for shaping facial, hand and neck contours.

The effect of dermal filler treatment is visible immediately. Depending on the area treated, the dermal filler effect can last up to twelve months. For your dermal fillers or Botox in Victoria, give us a call today.

Who needs Botox?

Do you suffer with fine lines and wrinkles, sunken skin and other skin problems associated with the ageing process? Would you like younger-looking, firmer and smoother skin? If you live in Victoria, Botox could be a good choice for you.

botox-in-victoriaOver time, internal forces (your genes, biology, the ageing process) and external forces (skincare habits, the environment) affect the quality of your skin. Our actions and lifestyle, such as smoking, how hydrated we keep ourselves, sun exposure and our diet, can have serious effects on our skin.

As time passes, our skin loses its youthful appearance, natural radiance and elasticity. It gradually becomes thinner, less firm and less hydrated. This is because the molecule that provides a solid structure and retains hydration in our skin slows down as we age.

The underlying muscle structure of the face also changes with time. Definition in the face, such as in the cheeks, can be visibly reduced.

How does it work?

Botox in Victoria can help these aging signs. Muscle contraction is one main cause for wrinkles. When you are angry or confused, you draw your eyebrows together and downwards. This causes creasing of the skin which results in frown lines.

Similarly, elevation of the eyebrows causes horizontal lines on the forehead and smiling or squinting can cause crows feet around the eyes.

At Hermes Lonon Dental Clinic in Victoria, Botox is injected into the target muscle directly below the wrinkled area and blocks the transmission of signals from the nerve ending to the muscle. This causes temporary paralysis of the treated muscle that has created the wrinkles, which results in the reduction or loss of wrinkles.

How long does it last?

Your Botox in Victoria, is quick and painless. It usually takes around five and ten minutes and requires no anesthetic. The results will usually be seen in a few days, but can sometimes taking between four and seven days for the full effect to be visible.

Botox is not a permanent treatment and the effects will wear off over time. Here at Hermes London Dental Clinic, we recommended that the procedure is repeated every three months to keep amazing results. For your Botox in Victoria, come and see us today.

Use a dentist for the natural look

So you are thinking about facial rejuvenation and wondering where to go for Botox in Victoria. Have you considered using a dentist for this and other facial rejuvenation treatments?

At first it may seem strange to go to a dentist for Botox in Victoria, but here’s why more and more people are doing so.

botox-treatmentDentists are experts in faces. They have to go to dental school for seven years to train in teeth and mouths. A large part of their dental training is developing a deep understanding and familiarity with the anatomy of the head, face, mouth, throat and neck. They are intimate with all those nerves and tendons, muscles and tissue that you want Botox in Victoria for.

This means that when they train in facial rejuvenation techniques, dentists come with an added advantage. You wouldn’t go to someone who isn’t medically trained for a surgical facelift, so why go to someone medically untrained for a temporary, albeit long-lasting, facial rejuvenation technique, such as Botox in Victoria?

At Hermes London Dental Clinic, we have a proven track record of providing dental treatment, both general and cosmetic, of the highest quality, and our patients can attest to the pride we have in giving them our very best.

In our caring and comfortable surroundings, you can expect to receive five-star treatment, which always has your comfort and health as its most principal focus.

Your Botox treatment with us will focus on the problem areas that you think need some help. The areas most commonly treated are the crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and nasolabial lines around the mouth. We inject these with just the right amount of Botox to temporarily block the nerve impulses to the muscles, which over the next few days relax and smooth out. Our expertise means that your treatment will make you look younger and more refreshed and will avoid that unnatural frozen look that many people have experienced when delivery has been heavy-handed.

Treatments with Botox in Victoria are expected to last for about four months, so you may want to book a top-up session about three months after your initial treatment.

Botox in Victoria at the dentist

Something new is happening at your dental practice or, at least, that is how it seems.

Expanding into the area of non-surgical beauty treatments is just an extension of this.

botox-in-victoriaHow is it done?

You can discuss the specifics with one of our professionals and take the time to ask the questions you want. They will be able to direct you on the areas of the face where Botox is usually effective. This often includes around the mouth, the frown lines between the eyes and on the forehead. These are the areas where lines in the face are caused by the activation of tiny muscles. They are targeted because Botox relaxes the muscles so that the lines are smoothed out.

Botox is injected into the areas that you choose to work on. The process will normally take less than half an hour and it will not be uncomfortable. You may see an effect straight away but usually it develops over the course of the next week or so.

The effects of Botox are not permanent so you will need to top up every three months to continue to enjoy the benefits.

The popularity of Botox

Botox was introduced 25 years ago by Dr Allen Scot. It is now one of the most widely available cosmetic treatments. A large amount of people (men and women) have spent their hard earned money on Botox treatments, in order to make themselves look younger and more attractive. There were other anti-ageing cosmetic procedures available prior to this, including facelifts. A facelift involves an operation and operations require a longer recovery period and can carry certain risks. Botox was discovered to be a fast acting quick treatment, able to produce effective results, during a minimally invasive procedure and is now the most popular facial aesthetic anti-ageing treatment. Hermes London Dental Clinic offers Botox in Victoria, the procedure takes around 10 minutes and it’s so minimal that an anaesthetic is not needed.

botox-in-victoriaOther cosmetic treatments available

Hermes London Dental Clinic offers other procedures that positively add to the appearance of its patients. Clear braces allow those suffering with crooked teeth to receive teeth straightening treatments in a discreet fashion. As the braces are transparent, they are hardly noticeable in a person’s mouth. Porcelain veneers are another cosmetic treatment that’s rapidly gaining popularity. Many people, including a large number of celebrities, have porcelain veneers bonded to their existing teeth in order to achieve beautiful pearly whites. No wonder they look so well put together on the TV, sporting a full set of veneers and a recent treatment of Botox. Victoria patients can now receive the same celebrity treatment at Hermes London Dental Clinic. Dermal fillers are another facial aesthetic treatment that Hermes London Dental Clinic offers alongside Botox. Victoria patients can either choose to have Botox injected into their facial muscles in order to reduce the appearance of their wrinkles or alternatively, dermal fillers have the effect of plumping up the skin in around the lines and wrinkles which rejuvenates the face and gives a younger looking complexion.

If there is something about your facial appearance that you’re not happy with, there’s a strong chance that Hermes London Dental clinic will be able to help. For further details on cosmetic treatments available, don’t hesitate to contact the clinic.

Staying young

Maybe throw in a little meditation in there just to be sure. The reason for this is, as we get older, we sometimes find that we have a lot of spare time, this can give us more time to think about things often causing stress and leading to insomnia. Not getting enough sleep isn’t good for anyone, especially when things tire us out more than they used to, meaning we need a little bit of extra rest. In addition, us maturing folk should be getting out, having fun and experiencing the world! Retirement comes with its benefits. Never been able to visit new places due to being tied down by a job or kids? Now’s your opportunity. What about that yoga class you’ve always wanted to go to but never had the time? Go for it!
