Botulinum toxin type A

is a protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, originally developed in the 1970’s as a treatment for belpharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (crossed eyes), it slowly gathered momentum in the cosmetics industry. In 2006 it was approved by the MHRA in the UK and is still one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetics treatments available today.

How it works?

Botulinum toxin type A temporarily blocks the chemical responsible for muscle movements. It takes 3-5 days to take effect with the full results expected after 2 weeks.

How long will it last?

On average it takes 3 months for the effects to wear off and your facial muscles to begin to regain full function.

What does the treatment involve?

It takes around 10 minutes to perform and involves only minor discomfort as the needles used are so small and fine. No anaesthetic is required.

Is it safe?

When administered by a trained clinician it is safe. The common side effects are related to the use of needles such as redness, bruising and swelling. Some patients report experiencing mild headaches shortly after treatment.

Who is not eligible for treatment?

People with a history of allergic reaction to botulinum toxin type A.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
People with muscle weakness disorder.

What is Dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar present in our skin. It is injected beneath the skin to reduce the depth of wrinkles present on the surface.

How long does it last?

Results are instantaneous with dermal fillers and depending on the area treated can last 3 – 12 months.

Is it safe?

When used by a trained clinician dermal fillers are safe and have very low complication rates. Common side effects are those related to injections – bruising, redness and swelling at the injection site for a few days after treatment.

Some more severe adverse reactions include allergic reaction, granulomas
(nodules), necrosis and excessive swelling but these are extremely rare.

Say About Us

I used to suffer anxiety when visiting the dentist due to a bad experience years ago, this resulted in me not going for years! Abbey dental have changed all that for me, I no longer stress or worry about going and their treatment is second to none. They have given me the confidence again and have not judged me or looked down at me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
As soon as you walk in to Abbey Dental Practice you are welcomed with a friendly face. Rob and his team are friendly, professional, but above all they put you at ease. I have never had a fear of the dentist, but Abbey Dental Practice is the most customer friendly dentist I have ever been registered with. Would highly recommend without hesitation.
As someone who has been afraid of going to the dentist for many years, I was fortunate to go to Abbey Dental Practice. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly and Robert Handley is so calming and reassuring, I finally lost the fear. After some years due to gum recession I was advised implants were an option. After some thought I decided to go ahead and it was the best decision I could have made as I have no trouble eating at all.
I travelled over two hours for my appointment this morning, normally takes an hour, got stuck in heavy traffic. My family and friends ask me why haven't I changed dentist since moving to North Wales. My answer is simple......."I trust them"
