Factors which may affect the aesthetics of your skin

There are many factors that can affect the ageing of your skin and this is commonly represented by fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes, lips and mouth. Modern hectic lifestyles are a major factor in the early ageing of the skin. Smoking and alcohol can also affect the aesthetics of your skin and speed up the ageing process. Excess exposure to the sun, lack of sun protection and the use of sunbeds have a detrimental effect on the skin, a poor diet and reduced water intake is also an important factor in the ageing of the skin.

Facial aesthetics can be improved by non-surgical procedures which reduce the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles to help enhance the beauty of your skin and to help evoke a feeling of greater youthfulness for yourself and to others. One of the most common procedures involved in improving facial aesthetics is Botox.

What is Botox?

Botox in Fulham, which is short for botulinum toxin, is administered in the form of an injection and works by relaxing the muscles in your face and helping smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles. Botox in Fulham works by inhibiting the nerve signals, which means it acts by preventing the nerves from sending signals to the muscles thereby paralysing the targeted muscle. As the muscle cannot move, any lines and wrinkles relax and soften. Visually this causes the disappearance of the lines and wrinkles as the muscles around your eyes, on your forehead and around your mouth are not moving when you smile. Speak to us at Chelsea and Fulham dentist to find out more about how the injection can work for you.

Advantages of Botox

Botox injections are quick and easy to administer, and the procedure takes a few minutes including for the Botox to be injected into the target areas according to your specific requirements and where your lines and wrinkles form. Any discomfort is minimal and although it can take up to 14 days for the full results to be visible, the treatment lasts from three to six months depending on the severity of your lines and wrinkles. An advantage of the semi-permanent results is that if you are unhappy with the appearance of your face following botox treatment then it will disappear in a few months. Also, the simplicity and ease of the procedure means that regular appointments are quick, convenient and do not affect your busy, hectic lifestyle. Research has shown that continuous treatment using botox injections can help reduce the overall severity of lines and wrinkles, softening them gradually with repetitive use.
