We’ve all seen the celebrity Botox fails: too many injections and the face freezes up, taking on an unreal, permanently startled look. It’s clear to all that ‘work’ has been done, and the hoped-for youthful boost hasn’t been achieved.
We don’t want that for you. We want you to get the most natural-looking treatment possible, so you get the lift without the freeze.
Which is why we offer Botox in Clapham here at Clapham South Dental Centre. As dentists, we are ideally qualified to offer this non-surgical face lift. We spend years studying the intricate anatomy of the face, so we know just where to place the injection to give you your desired result. We also give injections every day, so you’ll get a steady hand for your Botox in Clapham. And once we’ve given your teeth a clean bill of health and a polish and shine, what better way to showcase that new smile?
What is Botox?
It is the brand name of botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein that has been modified for medical and cosmetic applications. It was first used as a treatment for excessive sweating. It was then noticed that it had the effect of making wrinkles temporarily disappear, so was developed for the cosmetic market.
How does it work?
The protein is injected into various facial muscles, temporarily paralysing them. It does this by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle that tells it to contract. Without receiving this message, the muscle relaxes, and the wrinkle goes away.
What is it used for?
Botox in Clapham is most commonly used to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes, and sometimes lines around the mouth and on the neck.
How long does the treatment take?
It is a very quick and low-pain treatment, taking no longer than 30 minutes, and you will be able to go about your daily business straight afterwards. It takes a few days for the effects to be seen and they last 3-4 months. You can book in for a top-up after three months.
