It should be no surprise that as we age, we can start to feel more tired, and this can be seen in our faces, particularly if we are developing fine lines and wrinkles. While the mind may be raring to go, nights out until 4 am may now be replaced by a night in front of the TV with a cosy blanket and a mug of hot chocolate, tucked up snugly in bed by 10.30 pm.
When you look in the mirror, however, you may not want your face to look as though the years have been passing by as your mind is still feeling fresh and raring to go! If your reflection actually reflected what your mind was thinking, how much better might that be for your overall energy levels? Many people are turning to non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate their faces with anti-wrinkle treatments that are available in dental practices. A dentist West Bridgford could give you your treatment in as little as 5 to 10 minutes, and you could see the results in around 4 to 7 days without the need for any downtime at all. After this, many people feel the great effects of anti-wrinkle treatments, and the headline results of research conducted as part of Phorest’s Salon Industry Report concluded that two-thirds of Irish people are open to trying it. In the UK, treatment is less regulated, so visiting a dental practice offers obvious reassurances in terms of the dental practice setting, as well as the fact that dentists are professionals in facial anatomy.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections contain botulinum toxin type A, an injectable solution that is made from non-animal sources and is FDA-approved. A dentist would inject the facial muscles in the area being treated, and the toxin would block the nerve endings to these facial muscles, allowing them to relax and the skin to appear smoother and more youthful. The results are only temporary, lasting for around 3 months, after which time further treatment would be required.
Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?
The needles that are used to inject the solution are extremely fine, and with the steady hand of a dentist, it should mean that you don’t feel any pain at all. With no downtime required after the treatment, there also shouldn’t be a major impact on your day, allowing you to continue with your life immediately following treatment. You may be advised to avoid drinking alcohol for a week following treatment or going on sunbeds, for example; however, nothing major should be required for your aftercare plan.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Anti-wrinkle injections are considered to be a very safe method of achieving a more youthful appearance. The results are mainly temporary, so there should be little risk involved; if you aren’t keen on the results for any reason, they should be gone after around 3 months. Serious side effects are extremely rare, which is why this treatment is FDA-approved.
Give yourself a kick-start!
If you want to look and feel fresh-faced and raring to go, get yourself energised with anti-wrinkle treatments from a dental practice. You can then look in the mirror, see your youthful face and get out there to enjoy every minute of being you (there’s nothing to stop you from having a hot chocolate later, though).
