How Long Does It Take For Botox To Work

As a dental practice in Stourbridge, we know all about helping our clients look and feel their best. But we also offer some fantastic aesthetic treatments that help boost their confidence and appearance even more. One of them is botox, an anti-wrinkle treatment with lasting results. Learn more about it and how it all works in today’s post.

A smooth skin treatment

Many of our clients in Stourbridge choose to have botox to reverse signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. Botox anti-wrinkle injections can be administered to the forehead, brows and around the eyes to help smooth the skin and create a more youthful look.

Fighting signs of ageing

Botox helps to combat lines and wrinkles that are caused by expressions, whether it’s laughing or frowning. It reduces movement in the muscles that create those expressions, which is why so many people call botox wrinkle relaxers. The effects won’t look fake or frozen with our experienced hand, but instead just soften those signs of ageing.

A lasting treatment you’ll love

Facial aesthetics are long-lasting but not permanent, so you can adjust the treatment in the future. For botox, you can expect results to last anywhere from 3-6 months, though 4 months is usual. As the effects begin to fade, you can top up the treatment to prolong your results.

Versatile and effective

One of the things our Stourbridge clients love about botox is that the treatment isn’t just about anti-wrinkle injections. It can also help to refine your appearance through slimming areas like the jaw, again through reducing movement here. It’s why botox is commonly used for conditions like teeth grinding, where the chewing (masseter) muscles appear bulky. Anti-wrinkle injections are also great for reducing neck bands.

Low-risk, low pain

Wrinkle relaxers aren’t considered a painful treatment, though we may be able to apply a numbing agent before carrying out your injections. Botox is a prescription-only medicine and can only be delivered by experts, so you’re in safe and trusted hands at our Stourbridge dental practice. Side effects and risks are low and offset by our fantastic training, aesthetic eye and combination of knowledge and experience. However, we do offer aftercare guidance, as anti-wrinkle injections use fine needles, which can be linked to tenderness, redness and slight swelling of the treated area.
