Botox is probably the first word most people would think of when facial treatments are considered.

But what exactly is it, and how does it work?

Botulinum Toxin Type A is a purified natural protein chemically derived from bacteria. Botox is just one of several brand names for this material. Using a fine needle, the Botox is injected into targeted points within a muscle. This causes it to relax,smoothing out the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by the repeated contractions of our facial muscles over the years. The effects can be remarkable, reducing the appearance of wrinkles by up to 80%.

Is Botox safe?
We’ve all heard plenty about Botox. Like a lot of other procedures, the success of a Botox treatment depends on the skill and experience of the practitioner. Used with precision and accuracy, Botox is a very safe drug that is supported by extensive research and has been a cosmetic – and medical –treatment method since the 1900s. The effects of Botox are fully reversible and tolerated by the majority of patients.

Tooth Doctor’s very own Dr Natalia Kanaridou is highly experienced in delivering non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments. She regularly works with Botox to achieve subtle, attractive results which can make you look and feel ten years younger.
