Botox is becoming increasingly popular as a method for treating fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. It is especially good for treating the early signs of frown lines that could otherwise become permanent. The treatment simply involves using a series of injections of Botox to block the nerve impulses to the muscles controlling facial contractions. The final result is smoother and fresher looking skin and the impact of having Botox can be seen within as little as a couple of days. The treatment generally lasts for between four and six months before the effects gradually wear off.

Provided treatment is carried out by a fully trained and experienced expert then it’s extremely safe. Any side effects should be minimal and there is no need to schedule any recovery time after having the injections. The actual injections are very quick, but if you are particularly sensitive then it’s possible to have the area numbed with an anaesthetic cream or a cold pack. In fact all you need to do to have a smoother face is to book an initial consultation which takes roughly 20 minutes, which can then be followed with the treatment. The actual treatment only takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete depending on the area being treated.

Will Botox Leave Me Unable to Move My Face?

This is an extremely common question, and the short answer is no. You should still be able to move your face and your appearance will not radically change. The whole idea is to give you a natural look, just with fewer lines. You should simply look relaxed and rested.

Parrock Dental and Implant Centre only use a tiny dose of Botox that is a fraction of the maximum amount allowed. It is carefully calculated to be just enough to block the nerve impulses that cause the facial muscles to contract, allowing your face to become smoother. The whole point of facial aesthetics is to create a very natural appearance so no one will know that you have had work done, and you certainly won’t be left with a face that looks frozen.
