Why Trust Dr MJ?

MJ loves helping her patients look nice. It really is that simple.

 

Dr MJ: “I have all sorts of patients in their 30’s to 80’s! Everyone is different and it’s important to really figure out what a person wants from treatment so we can design a plan together and achieve remarkable results. You can only achieve perfection for an individual if you fully understand what they want and how they would like to feel.”

 

Dr MJ is a cosmetic dentist. This puts her in a uniquely well-qualified position when it comes to facial anatomy and injection technique, the two most important factors for creating beautiful results.

 

Botox Liverpool

 

She holds an MSc in Aesthetic Medicine and a Biomedical Sciences Degree, teaches Injection techniques and works on the faculty at Sinclair Pharmaceuticals as a Key Opinion Leader, Trainer and Advisor. She is also a thought leader in safety in the industry and works closely with regulator, Save Face to make sure unscrupulous practitioners do no harm to patients.

 

 

Finally she is an CUBS Expert Witness frequently being instructed in litigation to advise the court on proper record-keeping and injection best practices. All these qualifications and authorities are great but MJ claims that the secret to getting great Botox treatment has little to do with her qualifications.

 

Dr MJ: “Being highly qualified is the bare minimum.  People who practice on such an important area as the face should have a deep understanding of facial anatomy.  Each face is uniquely complex. As is each individual person. It’s not enough to inject well or use the best products.  You need to understand the complicated dynamic of a persons features to be the best you can be and make a real impact on people’s lives.”

 

 

MJ changed my life

 

There’s no such thing as a ‘famous’ dentist.  No matter what you might hear people say.  That said, Dr MJ has been featured widely in the press mainly for her work in complication management.  She has an active practice treating complications of filler and dissolving filler with hylase.

What is Botox and what does it do?

 

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.

 

Botox 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 its elasticity and hydration.  This means you start to notice lines and wrinkles forming first when you make certain facial expressions.

Botox® Treatment    

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 & Afters

 

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.

How to make Botox® last longer

Discover the best kept secrets that the pro’s use to help Botox last longer

 

 

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 glabellar 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.

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. 

 

You will look just like you but with fewer lines and wrinkles.  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.  

Risks & Aftercare Instructions

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. 

 

Following treatment with Dr MJ you will be given detailed aftercare instructions on a card to follow.  Aftercre for Botox is very simple.  Don’t mess with it, don’t worry about small bruises and avoid smoking, hard exercise for 24 hours after treatment. No facial treatments or saunas or extremes of heat and cold for two weeks. 

 

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.  

 

 

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 anti wrinkle treatment?
  • 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 treated?
  • 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?
  • 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 treatment 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?
  • some people may be unsuitable for anti wrinkle treatment for medical and health reasons, or because the treatment will not achieve the desired outcome. As this is a prescription only medicine, it must be prescribed by a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber. Your full options will be discussed with you at consultation
