Over the centuries people have tried various methods to retain their youthful appearance. Cleopatra bathed daily in donkey milk and Peter Thomas Roth created a five piece kit which incorporated dragon’s blood, which was the sap from a red tree in the Amazon which boosted collagen to deliver a youthful appearance. How we view ourselves can have a profound effect on our mental health and if you feel the need to have some facial therapy, we have the expertise and knowledge to help you. We, at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, have adopted a modern and scientific approach to helping reduce the signs of ageing, using Botox Dublin in a sterile and controlled environment. As dentists we study anatomy with particular attention devoted to the head and neck. We, therefore, have a thorough medical knowledge of your bones, muscles and skin. Our clinician who delivers the skin smoothing treatments is highly skilled in all aspects of facial aesthetics and regularly attends seminars and training to keep up to date with the latest techniques and equipment.
In use since the 1980s
Botox Dublin is a form of the botulinum type A toxin which has undergone a purification process. It has been in use for over four decades and is approved for use in non-surgical procedures. It has been used to correct eye squinting, muscle spasms, migraine, excessive sweating and numerous other medical conditions.
All our treatments, whether dental or improving facial aesthetics, are always preceded by a thorough examination and discussion. We apply the same care and attention to our patients whether their treatment is oral or facial. We take the time to explain the procedure to you and encourage you to ask as many questions as you like to enable you to make a properly informed decision about proceeding with the treatment. You will be allocated your very own coordinator who will explain your treatment step by step.
Once you have decided to proceed with the treatment we will ask if you would like some anaesthetic gel to be applied to the areas to be treated. We use extremely thin needles to administer the Botox Dublin and the dosage for each area is regulated according to the sensitivity of the area. The amount injected around the lips and eyes is less than the amount used to inject into the forehead. This is a vital part of the treatment process as it is important to reduce any chance of complications to the absolute minimum. The duration of the treatment is on average thirty minutes, depending on what areas are being treated.
How long will results last?
The results are not permanent and follow up treatments are necessary, but generally the average is three to four months. The type of skin and age of the patient play an important role in determining how long the effects last. The more often the treatment is administered the longer the effects will last, as the skin will undergo a rejuvenation due to less facial movement of the treated areas.
