The use of Botulinum toxin was first trialled in nineteen seventy-eight to correct a condition known as Strabismus or crossed eyes and in nineteen eighty-nine, Blepharospasm an eye twitch. Botox Kent has therefore enjoyed a journey of development into a treatment that can be administered safely for a variety of conditions. A condition called Spasmodic torticollis causes the neck muscles to contract, resulting in a patient’s head twisting to one side and is another condition this treatment brings relief from. The various treatments have been perfected and enhanced over the decades to now allow for the treatment of many other conditions.
Dentists are ideally placed.
At this responsible and progressive dental practice in Kent, the clinicians are qualified to offer botox kent treatments. As dentists, they receive training in the bones, muscles and skin of the human body, particularly the head and neck. They administer injections daily in the safety of their well-appointed and lit sterile treatment rooms. As an extension of their dental services, it makes sense to provide patients with this treatment in the knowledge that they are suitably trained in this area.
Non-surgical and quick
As with all treatments, your clinician will always discuss any treatment and encourage patients to ask questions so that they can make an informed decision. Any decision to proceed with a treatment, whether it’s dental or aesthetic must always be the patient’s decision. The trained team members can treat a variety of conditions such as excessive sweating of the palms or underarms. Excessive grinding of teeth, which can cause dental damage, is another area which can be treated by relaxing the muscles which cause the grinding.
Facial and neck skin smoothing
The most common areas that patients request to receive attention are the forehead, lips, chin and neck. The actual procedure takes between five and ten minutes depending on the number of areas requiring treatment. Results can take a few days to begin to show but results should become evident after four to seven days. For patients who would prefer, the clinician can apply a numbing cream to make the procedure feel more comfortable. The injections are administered using a very thin needle which reduces the sting and the botulinum solution relaxes the tiny muscles which results in smoother skin. Frown lines, crow’s feet and the lines which form around the mouth will all disappear. The treatment is non-surgical and is therefore not a permanent solution. To retain the wrinkle-free appearance, it will be necessary to return for a follow-up treatment after about three to four months. The treatment for excessive sweating will last for anywhere between six and twelve months. Once treatment has been administered it is advised to refrain from touching the treated areas for about twenty-four hours. It is also advised not to consume alcohol or partake in any strenuous exercise during the following twenty-four hours. After that, you can resume your normal lifestyle, and you will be provided with a post-treatment advice form.
