It can be hard to look in the mirror sometimes and see a stranger looking back as the years begin to catch up. This can be especially true during the summer months when the light is brighter and harsher. So what can you do if you’d like a fresher look but don’t want to do anything as drastic as undergo the knife? The answer could well lie in the use of dermal fillers and Botox, and both these treatments are available at Leeds City Dentalcare. They offer the perfect compromise between doing nothing and the far more drastic option of plastic surgery. When skilfully done by one of our dentists at our Leeds surgery, Botox or dermal fillers, or maybe a combination of both can help to rejuvenate your looks without making you look dramatically different. You’ll simply end up looking fresher, more relaxed and more approachable.
How do Dermal Fillers and Botox Work?
Botox can have a bit of a reputation for giving some people a somewhat frozen look, but it is something that almost certainly has happened when the product is overused or badly applied. Our dentists only use a tiny fraction of the maximum recommended dosage to merely relax the facial muscles and this is applied in a series of small injections using very fine needles. The overall result should be that you look well rested, and relaxing the muscles around the eyes may even result in them opening up a little more. Botox won’t necessarily erase all your wrinkles but can help to soften them.
As we age the skin naturally loses some of its collagen and fat and begins to look less youthful. Dermal fillers help to replace some of this fullness through plumping up the skin, creating a firmer and smoother appearance. This treatment is very successful in helping to reduce wrinkles around the lips and nose, and can also help to reduce crow’s feet.
Both of these treatments are only temporary, but should last quite a few months before they need topping up. It is a great way to regain some of the fullness and plumpness that is naturally present in younger skin and the results can be a huge boost to self-confidence. It’s the perfect treatment if you’ve got a special event coming up that you’d like to look your very best for. The beauty of having this treatment done at Leeds City Dentalcare is that you’ll get top-notch treatment from highly skilled dentist in Leeds who knows exactly where to place the Botox and dermal fillers. They are able to achieve maximum effects using minimal amounts.
Botox is more than Just a Beauty Treatment
Although Botox is commonly associated with reducing wrinkles it is quite a versatile substance and is often used to treat other ailments. It can be particularly effective at reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines and headaches and other associated symptoms. The reason it’s so successful is that Botox can help to reduce sensitivity through allowing the muscles to relax. If you do suffer from severe headaches and are looking for something that might help reduce these symptoms then it’s well worth contacting Dr David Brown or another of our dentists to see if Botox might help. They’ll also be able to tell you exactly what’s involved with this treatment, and what you can expect to achieve through having Botox injections.
