Botox and dermal fillers are a very good way of helping to freshen up your looks without having any radical treatment, but it is important to consult a qualified specialist. This type of treatment is not right for everyone, and you will need to visit Leeds City Dentalcare for an assessment to see if you are suitable. We’ll discuss these treatments with you, and can answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Botox is a very good treatment for helping to rejuvenate your looks, especially for the upper third portion of the face. It can be good for softening the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, as well as for treating lines in the forehead and frown lines. It can also be very effective for treating the lower facial area, and for softening lines caused by smoking. Botox tends to work best on those lines that are caused by the action of the muscles in the face. It is not an effective option for reducing lines or marks that are due to other reasons, for example acne scars.
Dermal fillers help to plump up the skin, giving a younger and fresher appearance. When used by a specialist such as Dr David Brown or another of our dentists, dermal fillers can smooth out wrinkles and lines. They are useful for adjusting the look of the chin, cheeks and lips, and both Botox and dermal fillers are something that can be used in combination to give a subtle but healthier appearance.
Not Just for Women
Botox is no longer the preserve of women, as a number of patients seeking this treatment at our Leeds surgery are men. It is ideal for men who are just beginning to show the early signs of aging, and who would like to minimise these signs for as long as possible. It is quick, discreet and minimally invasive. One thing to bear in mind is that larger men will need a larger quantity of Botox to achieve good results, but this is something that will be carefully calculated prior to treatment.
Using Botox for Migraines
Botox is often thought of as only being suitable for rejuvenating facial appearance, but in fact it is a surprisingly versatile treatment that can be used to help migraine sufferers. Anyone who has ever had a migraine will know just how debilitating this condition can be, but Botox can help relieve the pain. The exact way in which it does this isn’t fully known, but it is thought the toxin works through preventing particular chemicals from reaching nerve endings, reducing pain, as well as relieving the tightness of muscles in the head area. The effects are not immediately felt, as the results can take a week or so to fully manifest, reaching a peak approximately six weeks after being injected. The effects of Botox on migraines usually fade around three months after the injections. Botox can also help ease other symptoms associated with migraines such as fatigue, feeling nauseous or vomiting, neck pain and sensitivity to light.
