Tired of looking at those lines around your eyes? Worried about the increasing wrinkles between your eyebrows? Mask the effects of time with our anti-wrinkle treatments exclusively at Charnwood Dental Centre. We can assure you of a professional, unbiased assessment in a fantastic, discreet and friendly environment.
Treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes persistent lines between eyebrows and the outer eye areas. Wrinkles and facial lines are a result of ageing, muscle activity (and over-activity) and your genetic predispositions. In addition, excessive sun exposure, alcohol consumption, emotional and hormonal influences and smoking can also increase the likelihood of wrinkles. While it is possible to control some of the factors, you cannot influence all factors and that’s why we all develop some wrinkles as we age. Botulinum works by relaxing the muscles under the skin. Facial lines that are formed by the stretching and contracting of the muscles will then decrease in appearance.
A therapeutic dose of material is injected into the treatment area which is felt as a small prick. No local anaesthesia is needed and you will be able to continue with your normal activities immediately following the procedure.
There is mild discomfort and in some patients slight swelling and redness is seen after treatment. This usually settles within a few hours and cold/ice application relieves the discomfort.
The effects start working within 7-10 days with the greatest change seen after 2 weeks. The effects last approximately 3-4 months and it varies for every individual. Repeat treatments can be carried out if necessary to achieve the desired result.
