If you are feeling like you need some rejuvenation when it comes to your skin, then our team at Chelsea and Fulham Dentist can help you with this. We offer Botox in Chelsea to help our patients freshen and smooth out fine lines on their face, so that they can feel more comfortable in their own skin.
What is Botox?
If you are wondering what Botox in Chelsea actually is, it is simply a purified protein that we will inject into the neuromuscular junction of your muscle to temporarily block the transmission of signals from the nerve endings to it. This temporary block results in your muscles relaxing, therefore smoothing out your wrinkles and giving your skin a softer look. The results will usually last for around 3-6 months, because after this time, your nerve endings will start to send signals to your muscles again.
What will happen?
Before we begin the actual treatment itself, we will have a consultation with you to make sure that you are suitable for the procedure, and answer any questions that you may have. If all goes well and you are eligible and ready to get your treatment, we will arrange your Botox in Chelsea appointment. We recommend that you don’t drink any alcohol or anti-inflammatory medicines 24 hours before the treatment, to avoid possible complications.
The procedure itself will only take us a few minutes, and we will do everything we can to minimise your discomfort. You won’t need any anaesthesia, as we will use a small needle to inject the specific chosen areas very quickly and efficiently, with minimal pain. You will usually see the results of the treatment within 7-14 days.
When you leave our practice after having your treatment done, there are a few things that we recommend you do to make sure you get the best results. The first being to avoid exercise, alcohol, facials, and saunas for 48 hours after the treatment as these could lessen the results. We will also recommend that you keep upright for 6 hours after the treatment and to avoid touching your face, to let the Botox work its magic to its full potential.
Why choose this treatment?
There are quite a few different things that our patients have loved about our Botox treatment, whether it is the appearance of their skin afterwards, or the quick process.
As mentioned above, Botox helps with smoothing out your skin, giving your face a breath of fresh air. Everyone’s skin wrinkles with age, however it might make you feel uncomfortable and that is why we are proud to offer this treatment.

Although smoothing the skin is one of the main reasons we use Botox, there are also many other different things that we can cater for when it comes to this treatment. One being smoothing out a protruding nose, so if you have a slight bump on the arch of your nose, we can temporarily even it out using Botox treatment.
