BOTOX® is most effective for:
Banishing those unwanted lines and wrinkles with BOTOX®
Wrinkles appear over the course of time and are the result of cellular changes such as a reduction of collagen or damage caused by sun radiation and the environment. Frowning, squinting, concentrating and even laughing all cause the muscles between your brows and around your eyes to contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold.
BOTOX can help you fight the signs of natural ageing and provide you with instant relief from lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet. A simple wrinkle reduction treatment, BOTOX is a form of nonsurgical treatment that involves injections of purified protein into the skin to help relax the muscles and dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.
You’ll look better and feel better following your treatment, and what’s even better is that the results are long lasting so you won’t have to worry about your lines for 3+ months following your treatment.

BOTOX gets its share of bad press, but this is mainly down to the conflicting information that circulates the media. Here to dispel any Botox myths and misnomers is Hollie, our new Aesthetic Nurse at Oakley Road Dental Practice.
From frozen faces to follow up treatments, she will separate the fact from the fiction and explain why BOTOX continues to be one of the most sorts after cosmetic treatments available to both men and women.
BOTXO is a neurotoxin, that is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by paralysing the facial muscles. It may sound ominous, but it is actually safe to administer in small doses and has been used in science and medicine for many years.
Originally developed to reduce muscle spasms, today it is used to treat excessive sweating, migraines, bladder and bowel disorders and of course for cosmetic reasons. Made from a protein called botulinum it has the ability to freeze and relax your muscles, providing you with instant relief from lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet.
Approved for aesthetic cosmetic procedures in 2002 by the FDA, Botox works just like a mute button. Once injected into the skin it prevents signals from flowing between the nerve and the muscle and stalling facial movements temporarily, leaving you with smoother, silkier more radiant skin
Over many years there has been extensive research and testing into the integrity and effectiveness of BOTOX treatments. And whilst the safety record for BOTOX is very robust, it is worth noting that all medical and cosmetic treatments carry an element of risk and should always be carried out by a trained professional, such as Hollie.
One of the main reasons why Botox is such a popular cosmetic choice is that the treatment is subtle. Whilst friends may pass comment that you look brighter, fresher and stress-free, the treatment itself should not radically alter your facial appearance or natural expressions.
In order to maintain the harmony of your muscles and movement of your skin, it is important that the precise amount of Botox is applied, lifting and accentuating the skin for a flatter, firmer look.
At Oakley Road Dental Practice, you can rest assured, knowing that we will recommend and advise you on the best areas for Botox application in order to soften the signs of ageing in the most natural and discreet way possible.
The method for administering BOTOX only takes around 10-15 minutes, which is why it has become such a popular lunchtime procedure. At Oakley Road Dental Practice, however, we do insist on an initial consultation where we take the time to discuss your medical history, desired outcomes and expectations.
BOTOX is injected into the skin using very fine needles so the process itself is relatively painless. Most people do experience a small pricking or pinching sensation and occasionally redness or bruising can occur afterwards. In general, however, we always receive positive feedback from our patients who say the procedure was far more straightforward and stress-free than they had ever imagined.
BOTOX is most commonly applied to the upper half of the face, with the forehead, fold between the eyes and crow’s feet being the most popular areas to treat and retain a youthful-looking complexion.
BOTOX can also be used to lift the corners of the mouth that sag over time, smooth out the dips in our chins and to soften smoker’s lines around the mouth.
It is important to remember that lines and wrinkles do not always age you and can, in fact, add character and warmth to your face. At Oakley Road Dental Practice, we will happily advise you of the areas in which we think Botox can complement and enhance your facial features.
The cosmetic effects of BOTOX can last for anything up to six months but typically range from between 3-4 months. After this time, the muscles start to regain motion and fine crinkles and wrinkles will begin to reappear gradually. But don’t panic, you won’t just wake up one day to a face full of lines!
BOTOX and dermal fillers are both cosmetic treatments given via small injections, however, that is where the similarity ends as they are used for entirely different outcomes.
Botox is a muscle relaxant, used to freeze and soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers, however, are used to build up an area that may require volume or has sagged, thinned or dropped over time.
At Oakley Road Dental Practice, we offer both types of cosmetic treatments and can advise and consult on the best procedure for your individual needs.
