more and more people are turning to Cosmetic Doctors for rejuvenation techniques, to help their face reflect the way they feel inside.
One such rejuvenation technique is BOTOX treatment. It can be used to relax the specific facial muscles that cause upper facial lines (crow’s feet. forehead and frown lines) to form.
The following information explains how BOTOX treatment works and what is involved with the treatment.
How and why do wrinkles form?
Wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions. The wrinkles formed during these expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our eyebrows become noticeable.
When we are young our skin springs back to its initial position after facial expressions, but as we get older dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles: these are the wrinkles and folds that are present at rest. This process occurs because natural substances such as collagen (the major structural protein in the skin). elastin (the protein that causes tissue to stretch) and hyaluronic acid (which gives skin volume) decrease with age. This, together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.
What is BOTOX' treatment?
BOTOX° is a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. The active ingredient in BOTOX treatment is derived from bacteria in much the same way penicillin is derived from mould. It is manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions.
After the injection, it takes 3-5 days for the BOTOX treatment to begin taking effect and about 7 days to see the full effect. The dose recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines. Your dentist will know what the best dose is for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best results.

What is BOTOX®?
The popular term “BOTOX®” is actually a trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTx-A). BTx-A is a purified natural protein that is administered through the skin to work on the underlying muscles of the face.
Over years of repetitive and sometimes hyperactive contraction, these facial muscles cause wrinkles in the overlying skin. BTx-A relaxes the muscle contractions and allows the skin to become smooth again – regaining a more youthful appearance.
BTx-A is especially useful to treat “crow’s feet” around the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and frown lines between the eyes. Results are temporary, lasting for 3-6 months.
FACIAL AESTHETICS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE SOME SIGNS OF AGEING
What are dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally substance found in the body which helps to hydrate and provide volume to our skin – keeping it looking young.
With age and exposure to the elements, our bodies produce less of this youth-preserving ingredient and skin begins to sag creating unsightly facial lines and grooves, resulting in an overall dull and sunken appearance.
Using a HA based gel, which is administered into the dermis of the skin, Dentists can quite literally “fill’ these lines, grooves and sunken areas – restoring youthful voiume to the face and brightening your overall appearance.
HA Dermal Fillers are temporary by nature, lasting anywhere from 6-12 months before being completely absorbed by the body.
Dermal Fillers provide immediate results and or such are also ideal for use in lip augmentation to correct asymmetries or provide fuller, more defined lips, which perfectly compliment the outstanding cosmetic dentistry your Dentist can provide.
