What comes to mind when you think of the dentist in Soho? Fillings perhaps? Maybe braces? The sound of drills? Coloured water for rinsing?
There are so many strange sights and smells at the dentist, it can evoke a lot of memories and associations, not always pleasant or easy ones. Which is a shame, because as your dentist here at PS Dental Care in Soho, we can do so much to help improve your health and wellbeing.
Something we offer that can give your self-esteem a boost that probably didn’t pop into your head when thinking about the dentist in Soho is Botox. The dentist may not be your obvious first choice for what you may think of as a beauty treatment, but the more you look at it, the more it makes sense for dentists to offer this type of facial rejuvenation.
Here’s the reasons why:
- We are trained medical professionals and we study facial anatomy for five years as part of our qualification;
- We have in-depth knowledge of the complex and intricate make-up of the facial muscles. This means that we know just where to place the injection to have the most natural-looking effect;
- We work day-in, day-out with the face and head;
- We can offer this cosmetic treatment to complement a smile makeover or other dental work to give you a refreshed face to show off your new smile.
At its best, Botox gives a subtle lift to the face, helping you to maintain a youthful appearance for longer. With our experience and knowledge, we can help you achieve this natural look.
Botox: the lowdown
Botox is the brand name for botulium toxin type A, a purified protein that prevents the signals from nerve cells reaching the muscles they control, therefore temporarily paralysing the muscles. This means that wrinkles and lines are smoothed out when Botox is injected into targeted areas.
It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that can be completed in under an hour. It is administered in the form of an injection directly into the target muscles – usually around the eyes and forehead.
The results show within a few days and last for up to five months.
