As we get older, unwanted wrinkles and lines can start to show on our faces, making us look much older than we feel. At Glen Dental, we care about the health and happiness of the whole patient, which is why we are proud to offer wrinkle reduction using botulinum toxin, under the care of experienced and qualified facial aesthetics practitioner Dr. Lina Kotecha. Many patients report after treatment they look and feel much younger.
Dr Lina Kotecha offers treatment with botulinum toxin to help with the following conditions:
- For anti-ageing treatments – to soften lines and wrinkles
- For brow and jowl lifting
- To help with teeth clenching and grinding
- To relax the upper lip in the case of a high smile line (‘gummy smile’)
- To reduce fine lines (smoker’s lines) around the mouth
- To slim the lower face
- In conjunction with dermal fillers for a non-surgical face lift
- Dermatology service to reducing your skin
- To help reduce sweating (treatment of hyperhydrosis)
Dr. Lina Kotecha uses a tried and tested brand Azzalure, one of the few botulinum toxins approved by the FDA. It has a 20-year history and is regarded as consistent and safe. She is also very careful not to over-treat, avoiding the dreaded “frozen face” look. For the patients that like a very natural look, she uses a technique called ‘Baby Botox ®’.
Botulinum toxin works by helping small muscles in the face that have contracted relax, softening lines and wrinkles. It works in a similar way on sweat glands to treat excess sweating.
You’ll notice the first effects of botulinum toxin treatment after four or five days, and effects will typically last three to four months. Botulinum toxin is delivered via a series of small injections, and while there may be a little swelling for a day or two afterwards, there is minimum discomfort.
Most people are suitable for botulinum toxin treatment, however pregnant and breastfeeding women and those with certain neuromuscular disorders should avoid the treatment. Some medications may also make you unsuitable for this treatment, which is why we’ll take a detailed medical and drug history at your initial consultation.
