Botulinum toxin type A
Botox was first used to treat wrinkles in the 1990's. It is a convenient alternative to surgery, using injections with Botox to reduce and relax frown lines, forehead lines and laughter lines around the eyes.
Botox treatment for wrinkles is the most commonly requested aesthetic medical procedure worldwide. It produces natural-looking results and you can achieve a more refreshed look without people thinking you've had lots of work done. Results are visible within 7 to 10 days of treatment and typically last for three to four months.
Botox will give the face a smoother, more rested appearance. As it's a preventative treatment, repeat injections over time will mean you'll need fewer visits. As an advanced aesthetic practitioner, Mr Vaughan can also use Botox for the lower face and neck.
Wrinkles on the upper part of the face, around the eyes, nose and on the forehead are often of concern as they can give the impression of an aged appearance. They can be treated alone, but more commonly are addressed as part of a whole face rejuvenation programme.
We offer friendly, tailored advice and specialist treatments in non-surgical facial rejuvenation to keep your skin looking radiant and enhancing your natural beauty. Botox has been used for over 30 years for cosmetic and medical uses. Side effects are rare and the injections help the body ‘naturally’ retrain itself to further reduce frown lines.
You'll see a marked improvement in these lines after 7 days, and then a continual improvement for up to a month. When injected with Botox, the muscles are temporarily immobilised, which means that you will not be using those muscles that form the face into a frown. Most people frown without even noticing, so our Botox treatments help to correct this inadvertent reflex.
Having facial aesthetic treatment from a dentist means you can benefit from their thorough knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy. Dentists have vast experience in delivering this delicate work in a gentle and precise manner.
At your first appointment, Mr Vaughan will undertake an assessment of your skin, and listen carefully to what you hope to achieve over the course of your treatment. He will then develop a treatment plan and discuss it in-depth with you before commencing treatment.
