Stress tends to take its toll on our skin and youthfulness over time, and – for most of us – this has been a memorably stressful year. When we notice the visible signs of ageing it can bring on degrees of self-consciousness and embarrassment – no matter how old we are. Common areas that we notice wrinkles in include around our eyebrows, eyes (commonly known as ‘crow’s feet’), forehead and chin. Despite the help of skincare remedies and lotions, the visible signs of ageing are difficult to address and can be furthered by high levels of stress. However, through seeking Botox Kent, it is possible to target the visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, cosmetically and temporarily restore your skin to a more youthful appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments across the globe, for its time-proven ability to reverse the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by targeting specific muscles throughout the patient’s face which are causing the wrinkles or creases. Botulinum toxin, from which Botox is derived, is a neurotoxin that temporarily disrupts the nerve signals within the muscles around the patient’s face, which are contracting frequently and cause lines and wrinkles to emerge. As such, when these muscles are targeted with Botox treatment, the muscles across the patient’s face relax, often giving their face a far more youthful and natural appearance. Depending on the extent of the Botox treatment that you receive, the treatment can have a visual effect on a patient’s appearance for around 3-12 months.
How long does Botox take?
One of the main reasons for the worldwide popularity of Botox treatment is that it is easily accessible – through the aid of a trusted, reputable provider. It is recommended that those who are seeking out Botox treatment opt to undergo it through a dental practice, as they have a keen and certified understanding of facial anatomy, as well as cosmetic treatments, and therefore patients can relax knowing they are in safe hands. Typically, Botox treatment only takes around 5-10 minutes for the practitioner to carry out the painless injections within the target muscles throughout the patient’s face. The results of Botox treatment are generally seen a few days after seeking treatment, although it can take as long as 4-7 days for the results to take full effect and smooth out the visible appearance of wrinkles.
How do I get Botox treatment?
Anyone who has recently noticed an increase in wrinkles or frown lines, and feels that they could be benefitting from the visually enhancing effects of Botox treatment should contact a local dental practice that provides it and book a consultation. In doing so, it is possible to visually reverse the impact of stress on your appearance and restore your self-confidence and esteem to that of a former era. As Botox treatment is non-permanent, as well as non-surgical, it is generally possible for patients to arrange with their provider to repeat treatment every three months to achieve the best possible results on their appearance.
