Is It Time to Try Botox?

July 19th, 2019

Botox is used by people around the world to get a younger look, as Botox smooths facial lines and wrinkles.

Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is a toxin, but is used in minimal quantities in this nonsurgical treatment. Botox works by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching muscles, therefore paralyzing them. This allows the skin to relax, becoming smoother.

Botox helps reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles. Botox is most commonly used to treat crow’s feet, laughter lines, frown lines and creases around the nose and eyes.

It is a very safe treatment when a trained professional administers the injection. The treatment itself is quick and painless (a local anesthetic can be used to numb the skin). Our aesthetics experts at Westmount Dental Surgery are highly experienced, so you will be in safe hands.

The results of a Botox treatment are visible almost immediately — a smoother, more youthful complexion. The results of Botox treatment last around 6-9 months. At that point, you can choose whether or not to top-up your treatment.

If you have noticed lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror, it might be time to try Botox. If you look older than you feel, why not try Botox?
