In the age of an image-conscious society, where natural beauty can be improved upon, people are looking for ways to improve on perfection more than ever. It is no longer enough for some people to have a nice smile, well cared for skin and an appearance that others find pleasing to look at.
There is now a need to find little ways to enhance and preserve the appearance, which has led people to try new techniques within the field of non-surgical cosmetic practices offered by some medical professionals. These are simple injection-based procedures that can be carried out within a few minutes, with results that will last for several months.
While these procedures are not without risk, they do carry fewer risks than the more traditional procedures provided by plastic surgeons, such as surgically based face-lifts.
Many dental surgeries are now offering their patients the chance to access some of these injection based cosmetic treatments and where better to start than offering some of the more common treatments, including Botox Kent.
Only trust a registered professional
The first piece of advice anyone may be given if they are considering having Botox is to only receive treatment from a fully trained and registered professional. This should not have to be said, unfortunately it needs to be, as there have been many media reports about individuals going on training courses for one or two days and receiving a certificate saying they are qualified to administer Botox injections when really they are not.
The reasons a dental surgery may be the best place to administer these injections are many and plain to see, as dentists have spent many years training to provide treatment in and around people’s faces. The face is made up of tiny muscles in an extraordinarily complex way, if someone is going to receive an injection into these muscles then the least they should be able to hope for is that the person giving the injection has a complete understanding of the task in hand.
Botox and the procedure
Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox, is injected into the muscles of the face to relax them, this helps to even out the appearance of the face, smoothing features such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. This helps the skin to appear younger.
The results gained are not permanent, lasting 3 or 4 months. However, patients of this procedure can choose to receive top-up courses of treatment, only with the advice of their healthcare professional. It should also be recognised that Botox injections as a treatment are not suitable for everyone and should only be undertaken with a professional involved.
Accepting the risks
Before anyone undergoes Botox injection treatment they need to be made fully aware of the risks and what to do if things go wrong. This is another good reason for choosing a dentist to receive the treatment from, as they will have a full understanding of the risks involved and how to avoid them.
If someone is interested in receiving Botox, for whatever reason, then the message in this piece should be seen as a loud and clear one. Please, before you put your facial enhancement in someone else’s hands, make sure they are fully trained to allow you to do so.
