Botox Treatment – Smoother Skin For Christmas
Our Chelmsford facial aesthetics team – helping you look your best for the Xmas season!
With the first snow being hinted at by weather forecasters, many of us will be reminded that the Christmas season is not far away. Whilst this means presents and a time to be with family, for many it is also the start of a hectic party season.
Office parties and partying with friends can be great fun, and most of us will go out of our way to look our best for these events, spending money on clothes and our hair. For those who want to look even better though, a facial aesthetic treatment to give you younger looking skin may be just the ticket to both looking and feeling at your best.
Botox treatment has gained a somewhat unfair reputation over the years. There is little doubt that, if abused, either by too large doses being administered or being performed by untrained personnel, it can result in some extreme facial changes. Thankfully, these events are relatively rare and should be of no concern to patients of Blue Sky Dental. Our Chelmsford facial aesthetics team are fully trained, with checks in place to ensure that only the correct amount of Botox is administered. This helps to ensure both a successful and safe procedure.
The treatment itself involves small injections of the Botox serum just under the skin in places where the patient wishes to ‘iron out’ wrinkles and lines. Common uses are forehead lines, wrinkles around the eyes (Crow’s feet) and frown lines. No local anaesthetic is required and patients should just feel a small ‘pinch’ as the needle enters the skin.
Post treatment effects
Patients may wish to schedule their facial aesthetics appointment at a convenient time as there may be some minor localised bruising at the injection points. This will disappear after a few days but can appear unsightly, so treatment is best planned away from any social occasions. Generally speaking, it is advisable to allow around a couple of weeks for the full effects of the treatment to be seen. Your skin will eventually start to lose its smoothness after several months (we will advise the expected time at your consultation). Patients may repeat the treatment for as long as they wish though, with no ill effects.
Once you see the results of this procedure, we are sure that you will be delighted with your new younger looking skin, and will be able to approach the party season full of confidence that you are looking at your very best.
