Are you looking older than you feel? Here at Bright and White Dental Spa in South Woodford, we can help you regain your youthful skin using anti-wrinkle injections that are a very common procedure used throughout the UK.
These treatments are sometimes referred to as “Botox” and used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment is fast safe and simple with no down time so you can even have it done in your lunch break.
Who should consider anti-wrinkle injections?
The appearance of lines around the forehead, eyes and upper lip are common features of an ageing appearance. This is the treatment of choice to help reduce deep wrinkles.
Smokers suffering from the premature signs of ageing could also benefit from these treatments.
We don’t advise this treatment for pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding.
How does it work?
These treatments work by reducing overactive muscle movement in the face, allowing the skin to relax and recover from the sustained action. The application is done through a very fine needle and virtually pain-free. Our clinicians are highly skilled and treatment will only take place after we have explained the procedure in full and given you all the information you will need pre and post procedure.
Is it safe?
Yes, this is a very safe treatment. Here at Bright and White Dental Spa we only prescribe treatments that we know are safe and can only bring benefits to our patients. This product has been used for many years in higher doses to treat patients of all age groups for other medical conditions and is naturally broken down and cleared from the muscles with 3-6 months.
Does it look natural?
Yes, our aim is to always achieve the best results without making it obvious that you’ve had any treatment at all.
For first timers, we may recommend a lower dose to begin with and increase the dose slowly as we closely monitor the results.
Which areas can be treated and how long does it last?
- Forehead/brow line
- Upper lip
- Around the outside of the eyes and between
The results will take up to 10 days to show and last 3-5 months, this can vary between people. The beneficial effects tend to last longer in younger patients and there is some evidence to suggest that frequent treatment leads to longer lasting results.
Are there side effects?
After treatment, you may notice small red bumps where the facial injections have taken place but these normally disappear after 10 minutes. In very rare instances you may notice very slight bruising which will disappear very quickly and in fact is rare.
