If you want to reduce the fine lines on your face and slow the signs of ageing without having to resort to invasive surgical procedures, the good news is that facial rejuvenation techniques (also known as botox) can soften wrinkles and fine lines to create a more youthful appearance.
The benefit of having the rejuvenation treatment done by dentists in London Victoria is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise manner. Our practice uses the botulinum toxin type A for this treatment, an injectable aesthetic solution for the face.
Once injected into the skin, the botulinum toxin relaxes the tiny facial muscles, which cause expression lines, by blocking the nerve impulses in them, leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful.
Areas on the face that can be treated include frown lines (vertical fine lines which form between the eyebrows), eyebrow lines, crows’ feet, forehead lines and wrinkles and lines around the mouth and top lip, also known as ‘smoker’s lines’.
The botulinum botox injection is quick and painless; usually lasting around 5-10 minutes and requires no facial anaesthetic. Results will usually be seen in a few days, sometimes taking between 4-7 days for the full skin rejuvenating effects to be seen. While the botox effects won’t last forever, we expect the results to last for around 6 months depending on your skin type. After the smoothing effects wear off, don’t hesitate to come back and see us in the clinic to top up your botox or filler to maintain your younger looking complexion for the following year.
As it’s not a permanent treatment, the effects will wear off over time, so it’s recommended that the procedure is repeated every 5-6 months for effective results. Come see Hermes London Dental Clinic for Botox injections or a consultation in Victoria today.

There is a difference between the botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles, whereas the fillers fill and plump up fine lines, wrinkles and grooves to make the skin look more youthful and slow the appearance of ageing. Fillers usually consist of sterile hyaluronic acid gels made from non-animal sources. As we age the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid is lost giving rise to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds within the skin. Injecting fillers into the skin acts to replace the hyaluronic acid that is lost with age. They are also used for lip enhancement and for shaping facial, hand and for obtaining neck contours.
The filler injections, which only take a few minutes, are usually administered after a local anaesthetic has been applied either directly onto the skin, or incorporated into the syringe containing the filler. This serves to reduce or prevent any discomfort. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately. Depending on the area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the injectable filler effect can last between six and 12 months (usually six months for lips). Follow-up treatments will help to maintain the skin’s plumped up look over time.
