Does Botox really work and how long does it last?

Hoping to steal a kiss under the mistletoe in Warwickshire during the festive season? What better way to give yourself the confidence to approach the one you’ve been desiring, than by turning the clock back by a few years? Here at Clarendon House Dental, we offer anti-wrinkle treatment that will subtly, but effectively give you a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

Our practitioners are highly skilled and experienced at administering Botox, so your new look will be entirely natural looking. When the Botox has taken effect, you’ll look in the mirror and recognise the face as being yours of a few years ago, looking rested, radiant and happy. We can help you return to being the best version of you and we can do it in time for those Christmas and New Year parties you having coming up soon.

How does Botox work?

Wrinkles are the result of your muscles contracting repeatedly over time. When we’re young and our collagen levels are high, our skin is elastic enough to snap back into shape after a muscle contraction. When we’re a bit older and our collagen levels are lower, our skin is less firm, less elastic and our muscle contractions leave their mark on our faces in the form of facial lines.

Botox relaxes the muscles in the face to stop them from contracting and lines from forming. Small controlled doses are administered under the skin using an ultra fine needle; not enough to stop you from expressing yourself, but a sufficient amount to give you a more youthful look.

You’ll notice a difference in your appearance 3 or 4 days after Botox treatment, but 10 to 12 days later you’ll start getting compliments from friends and loved ones about how ‘well’ and ‘rested’ you look. It won’t be obvious that you’ve had Botox, but it will be apparent that you’re looking great!

The treatment will last for 3 to 4 months, but once the effects start to wear off you can receive a top up treatment. This will ensure that you don’t have to return to the older-looking you and suffer a loss of confidence in your looks as a result. Our large number of returning customers are proof that we can deliver effective, aesthetically-pleasing Botox treatment that works, but in order to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, about what the procedure entails, why not book a consultation with us?

Our dedicated, friendly and professional team will be happy to provide you with all the information you need. Could Botox even be the perfect early Christmas present, either for yourself, or for your friends? We’re happy to take a group bookings, although you will each need to have an individual consultation. Please give our Warwickshire practice a call and we’ll arrange an appointment time that’s convenient for you.
