Botox Treatment at Smileworks

 

Anti wrinkle injections are by far the most popular aesthetic treatments available today.  Patients come to see Dr Rowland-Warmann from all over the UK to get the perfect look and her expertise with anti-wrinkle toxins is unmatched here in Liverpool.  Dr Rowland-Warmann is one of the most highly qualified injectors in the city, having undertaken her Masters Degree in Aesthetic Medicine from Queen Mary University.  She is also a cosmetic dentist so works every day in the face.  Her knowledge of facial anatomy is second to none and you can rest assured that you are in the safest hands at Smileworks.

 

 

 

 

Here at Smileworks we use Allergan Botox® to ease wrinkles and create a refreshed, alert and youthful look for our patients.  Botox® is a product that is dependable, effective and reliable in the hands of an expert injector.  Not everybody is suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment and you must come along for a consultation where we will discuss possible outcomes and how this wonderful treatment can make you look and feel years younger in just a few days.

 

 

Botox® is the brand name for Botulinum Type-A, a naturally occurring toxin that is safely injected into the muscles to cause them to relax.  This softens wrinkles and deep lines leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.  If you have very deep wrinkles then you might be also interested in dermal fillers.  Our anti-wrinkle treatments are also popular amongst patients who also come for lip fillers.

 

Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline pun...you'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

Absolutely excellent service. All the staff are friendly and make sure all your treatment options are fully explained. Don't do anything unless your 100% sure of all that's available. Shiron made sure my treatment was the absolute best it could be.

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

The most welcoming and friendly staff I have ever experienced anywhere, let alone a dentist. I felt in safe hands from the get-go and was so happy with the staff arranging appointments for me even outside of the practice. The creative and clever practice design (airplane) topped the fun experience off! Thanks MJ, Georgiana and Heloise.

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away. Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen. The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works. They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel. Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment. Their smile really works.

teamI'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date:After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas !Kindest regards DaveSent from my i

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now...Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on.Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease.Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing.From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened.This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.

How does it work?

 

This treatment works by targeting the root causes of wrinkles in the skin.  In everyday life we make facial expressions and in young individuals the skin has elasticity and contains lots of collagen so wrinkles usually don’t form.  As we get a little older and collagen begins to deplete, the skin loses it’s elasticity and hydration.  This means that individuals notice lines and wrinkles forming first when they make certain facial expressions.

 

 

Then over time these wrinkles and lines become a permanent feature of the face and give the appearance of an aged complexion.  Targeted Botulinum treatments can relax some of the muscles of facial expression and cause these lines to soften and disappear over time.  It’s sometimes difficult to understand how the process works but it is tried and tested on literally millions of patients the world over who choose to come back time and time again for the wonderful age-reversing properties of Botox®

 

Before & After

Here’s the treatment results you can expect from your anti-wrinkle treatments from Allergan, the makers of Botox®.  We have clinical images that you can see although botox before and after images just look like someone frowning and then not frowning so are pretty unhelpful!  But trust us, 11 million people can’t be wrong!  To see dozens of testimonials from our patients check below on this page.

 

Botox before and after man

Botox before and after woman

 

Treatment Areas

Glabella (frown lines)

 

Botulinum injections can be used to reduce frown lines.  These are the vertical lines that form when you frown in between your eyes.  The medical name for these lines is glabella lines and the area can be injected to cause the muscles to relax making you unable to frown in a way that causes the wrinkles to form.  If you’ve not had Botox® treatment before, it can be difficult to understand how it works – but you will be amazed at the difference after just a few days.

 

Periorbital Lines (Crows feet)

 

The next popular area for treatment is the ‘crows feet’ around the eyes.  This is called the periorbital area and your anti-wrinkle injections will temporarily relax the muscles that contract to cause these lines to form.  You’ll still be able to squint but the lines will not form.

 

 

This is an extremely popular application of Botox® and the difference can be dramatic on your overall appearance.  Crows feet are a remarkably ageing feature and many patients have crows feet that stretch all the way down their faces to their cheeks.  When they are gone, the difference will leave you looking significantly more youthful.

 

Frontalis Lines (Horizontal forehead lines)

 

Another popular area for treatment is the lines that form when you raise your eyebrows (or frontalis) As we age, these lines only appear when you raise your eyebrows or make a surprised face.  However, as the skin loses it’s elasticity and collagen over the years, these lines can become a permanent feature of your face and have a substantially ageing effect on your overall appearance.  Treatment with anti-wrinkle injections can soften the lines and even get rid of the static lines and smooth the forehead to give you a youthful and refreshed look.

 

Perioral & DAO (lines around the mouth)

 

Botulinum can be used off label around the mouth to help patients with marionette lines or wrinkles around the mouth.  The product can also be used very skilfully to help patients look less grumpy and help their smile really beam.  This is called treatment of the depressor angular oris muscles which are responsible for the sad or grumpy face people make when they are unhappy.  Botulinum treatment can also be used to lower the patients smile line and reduce the appearance of the gums when you smile.  This is called a ‘gummy smile’ and many patients get treatment above the top lip to drop the smile line when they have had a lip augmentation.

 

All of these applications are advanced and you’ll need to come and see Dr Rowland-Warmann so that she can advise you on whether Botulinum treatment is right for you and what particular benefits you will be able to achieve.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment

 

Hyperhydrosis is a medical condition where patients sweat much more than normal.  Patients with hyperhidrosis will sweat profusely for no apparent reason or when they are triggered by caffeine, stress or heat.  Botox® is licensed for use in cases such as these and patients can get Botox® treatment once a year on the NHS for their condition.  However, the NHS only allows one treatment per year and patients will want all year round relief from sweating in the back, armpits, head  and hands.

 

 

Many patients come to Smileworks to be treated with Botulinum in these areas to reduce the amount they sweat.  The results are profound for some and mean a total stop to the sweating.  For other patients they may feel temporary relief or partial easing off of the sweating.  Dr Rowland-Warmann is experienced in treating patients for Hyperhidrosis in the hands, feet, armpits and other areas and you should make an appointment for a consultation to discuss your options.

 

Gummy Smile Treatment

 

If you don’t like the way your gums show when you smile then believe it or not Botulinum treatment can help.  Patients receive injections into the top lip and this relaxes the muscles that pull the lip up over the gums and cause a gummy smile.  When you smile your teeth should show but not your gums and some patients call this ‘gummy teeth’ but it’s in fact caused by the top lip pulling the lip up too far.

 

 

Many patients have gummy smile treatments with their lip augmentations as the two treatments work extremely well together.  Gummy smile Botox® is another advanced treatment that should only be carried out by an extremely talented and experienced practitioner.

 

Tension Headaches

 

Botulinum toxins can also be used to treat the head in patients who get tension headaches.  Careful application and targeting of muscles can cause the problem to ease.  Additionally some patients choose to have treatment in the jaw area to reduce the size of their jaw muscles and improve their facial profile.

 

Static & Dynamic Lines

One of the most amazing properties of Botulinum treatment is it’s dual effect on the face.  Firstly, the muscles of facial expression will be slightly relaxed and this means you will not make the expressions that cause wrinkles to form.  This doesn’t mean that your face will be ‘frozen’ far from it.  A competent and careful practitioner can create a situation where you’re able to make all the normal expressions but just not the ones that cause you to form wrinkles and look older.

 

 

You may notice that wrinkles form when you make certain surprised or frowning expressions but then disappear when your face is t rest.  These are called ‘dynamic lines’ and are common in younger individuals.  However as we get older, these lines begin to literally become drawn onto the face and become ‘static lines’ which means they are always there.  This can have a dramatic ageing effect on a person and make you feel older and tired-looking.  The wonderful thing about treatment with Botulinum Type-A is that the dynamic and the static lines will disappear, causing you to look much younger.  What’s more, the effect is permanent so long as you continue your Botox® cosmetic treatments every 4-6 months.

 

 

Many patents ask ‘what happens if I miss an appointment’ as though they will suddenly look 20 years older!  This is not possible.  Think about Botox® treatment as simply stopping the wrinkles forming.  If you stop treatment they will gradually return to the way they were before, the fact that you may have aged a few years will not be apparent.

If you’re anything like us here at Smileworks, you’ve used every single over the counter anti-wrinkle treatment in the world!  Unfortunately none of them work and although the cosmetic industry is great at packaging up expensive crèmes and lotions, they have little or no permanent effects.

 

 

Botulinum is different.  It doesn’t reduce the appearance of wrinkles it actually reduces wrinkles.  Not only this, it reduces the deep static lines that you may have developed with age leaving you looking noticeably years younger.  The results are real and the results are noticeable.  You’ll be sure to get lots of people telling you how young you look and are free to blame it on cosmetic skin cremes if you want to!

 

 

You will notice results after a few days as the Botox® takes time to work on the target muscles.  Then the results will last between 4-6 months for your first treatment and 3-4 months for subsequent treatments.  Patients are encouraged to come for a review appointment to see how the product has taken effect and to perfect the look you want.

 

Your Clinicians

Botox® Risks & Droopy Eyes

 

Like with any medical procedure, treatment with botulinum toxins carry certain risks of adverse events and complications.  The most common are tiny bruises from the injections and swelling in the treated area.  Following your treatment you will have tiny lumps where the Botulinum and saline is present in the tissue.  These will resolve in 10-30 minutes.  You may get small blue bruises that will resolve after a few days.  Then there are more rare complications that are typically caused by poor injection technique or cross-infection protocols not being followed.  Some patients come to Smileworks having been to salons and ‘mobile’ Botox® providers with swelling, bruises and uneven results.

 

 

A ‘frozen face’ is an adverse reaction to Botulinum toxin and poorly trained practitioners will cause this in their patients.  Patients also come in with droopy eyes having been treated by amateur injectors at other practices.  Unfortunately a droopy lid or ‘ptosis’ is not immediately reversible and patients will be stuck with it for 6-9 months.  This type of complication does not happen at Smileworks because we are the best at what we do and carefully treat our patients.  However, if you have a Ptosis, there are ways we can alleviate the problem if you come in for a consultation.

Patient FAQ

Here are the most commonly asked questions from our first time Botox® patients and even people who have been coming to us for years.

  • Should I get Botox®?
  • If you're unhappy about fine lines and wrinkles or deep lines on your face then anti-wrinkle treatment could be suitable for you. You must come in for a consultation and can have treatment on the day if Dr Rowland-Warmann and you agree that this treatment can help you feel confident, happy and refreshed.
  • What should I do before getting Botox®?
  • Nothing. It's extremely rare that an individual will not be suitable for treatment. Good skincare is recommended along with daily sunscreen. If you would like to know the details of how to maintain Botox for longer or prepare then read our download "Secrets to longer lasting Botox"
  • At what age should I start getting Botox®?
  • Here at Smileworks we treat patients in their early 20's right up to their 80's and beyond! There is no recommended time to start having treatment and only you can make the decision.
  • What can't it fix?
  • Botulinum injections are, unfortunately, not magic and cannot stop time. The duration is temporary (between 3-5 months in the face) and when the treatment wears off your face will return to how it was before. Botulinum treatment cannot reverse the ageing process but it can slow it down dramatically and you will not see new deep lines following treatment if you keep up with your appointments. Botox cannot fix thin lips, saggy eyelids, facial volume loss or bad skin.
  • What can it fix?
  • Botox® is an extremely versatile product and in the right hands it can be used for fine and deep wrinkles, to turn up the corners of the mouth (to make you look less grumpy as you age) and also to lower a smile line to reduce a 'gummy smile'. It can also be used to stop patients sweating, help with tension headaches, minimise the bulk of the muscles in the jaw and many other 'off-label' uses.
  • How long does Botox® last?
  • Botox lasts ®3-5 months depending on the particular patient and the part of the face that's being treated. Excess sun exposure and smoking will dramatically reduce the duration of the product and is not advised.
  • Is it painful?
  • No, patients tolerate the injections extremely well and the smallest needles are used causing little or no pain.
  • Who can inject?
  • Doctors, Surgeons, Dentists and Certain types of nurses can inject Botox® It is a prescription medication and must be proscribed by a medical person. Beauticians, hairdressers and anyone else are practising illegally if they are injecting botulinum and are labeled as criminals by the UK government.
  • Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
  • Yes, although Botulinum is an extremely potent neurotoxin, the amounts used are safe. You will increase your risks of infection, complications or a poor result if you try to get cheap Botox® or go to the beauty salon for treatment. An individual would have to drink a dozen full vials of Botulinum to become ill and the amount injected to cause serious life-threatening illness would be extreme.
  • Will i be able to move my face?
  • Of course. A frozen face is a 'complication' of Botox® treatment and to be avoided. Patients often come to Smileworks wanting to be 'completely frozen' and we will turn them away.
  • Does it prevent ageing?
  • There are some studies that show continued treatment slows the ageing process.
  • What happens after treatment?
  • The treatment takes a week to really start to work and you should avoid strenuous exercise, the sauna and swimming for a few days after treatment to allow for the product to settle. You will notice small lumps on your face following treatment. This is the saline that carries the product to your muscles. They will disappear in about half an hour.
  • When can I get treatment again?
  • Many patients choose to come in every 3-6 months depending on how they respond to treatment. If you're asking us for more than this then we probably need to reassess your suitability for the treatment.
  • Is the review / touch up free?
  • Yes. After two weeks you'll have a review to see how the product has affected your muscles of facial expression and you may require a little more in places. This is part of the treatment.
  • Which are the best products to use?
  • Allergan Botox® is - in our medical opinion - the best product. It is dependable, long lasting and great to use. We have experience with other products such as Dysport® and the Merz product, BoCoture® and found them to be unreliable or weaker than their Allergan counterpart.
  • Are the results immediate?
  • No, you'll start to notice results after a few days and the product will not fully take effect for a week or so.
  • Can anyone have anti-wrinkle treatments?
  • Yes, most people are suitable so long as you're over 18 years old. We do turn patients away who want too much product or have unrealistic expectations of what this product can do for them.
