As we age we naturally lose skin tone and skin elasticity. After muscle movement this prevents complete recoiling of the skin which leads to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and folds.
Botox is an anti-wrinkle treatment which works by reducing muscle contraction and allowing the muscles to adopt a more relaxed state. The result is a reduction in the prominence of expression lines and a more youthful radiant look.
Ideal areas for treatment include frown lines, folds and lines at the top of the nose and crows feet lines around the eyes.
The best time to consider having Botox® is when you notice that your dynamic lines (the wrinkles that appear through expression) are present even when your face is relaxed. This typically happens in your mid 30’s, however it varies from person to person depending on genetic and lifestyle factors. Such factors include sun exposure, stress and cigarette smoking. Botox® works best at this stage, rather than with deeply etched lines.
Safe, affordable and fast-working
Botox remains one of the most safe, affordable and fastest working non-surgical, anti-ageing treatments available.
All Botox® treatments at South Devon Dental are performed by Dentists or Doctors with further training in facial aesthetics. Patient safety is our highest priority. Botox can be safely used to optimise the results of mild chemical peels such as the Jan Marini Glycolic Peel. Such peels rejuvenate and refresh the skin and Botox® serves to soften the lines and wrinkles. The result is a natural, refreshed appearance.
Dr Tanya and Dr Kate have both completed Botox® training on Harley Street.
