Wrinkle Softening (Vistable)

VISTABEL® is the new name for BOTOX®, the popular wrinkle softening treatment now formally approved for cosmetic use. Vistabel® (Botulinum toxin type A) injections are now the UK’s first choice of treatment to remove facial lines and wrinkles, proven to reduce the visible signs of ageing.

Vistabel® treatments are safe, quick and straightforward, and can be supplemented by other treatments such as dermal fillers leading to an even greater aesthetic result.

Vistabel® relaxes the dynamic facial muscles responsible for the creation of wrinkles, and is specifically targeted at the frown, eye and forehead areas. This means that when you laugh or frown, the overlying skin becomes smoother and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles work normally, and facial expressions are not affected. All it takes is a few painless Vistabel® injections, and you can carry on with your everyday tasks, seeing the wrinkles soften within 3 to 5 days. Your new fresh, relaxed appearance free of unsightly wrinkles will remain for 3 to 6 months following Vistabel® treatment.

At Thrapston Dental Centre, we have Mrs Marr, a highly qualified dentist who can carry out line and wrinkle smoothing injections.


Your Vistabel® Consultation

Your Vistabel® consultation will be conducted with an experienced practitioner, Mrs Marr, who will explain which Vistabel® procedure is best suited to your face, and will carefully examine your skin to ensure that the ideal Vistabel® treatment is provided to achieve your optimum result.


The Vistabel® Procedure

Small Vistabel® injections are performed on the muscles responsible for wrinkles, the number of injections being determined by your particular facial requirements. Every Vistabel® treatment is analysed to leave you with the best result for your unique face. Your skin will be cleaned and then small amounts of botulinum toxin will be injected into the area to be treated. You will be advised not to massage or rub the treated area and to treat it gently for 24 hours following treatment.

The area treated should appear smoother and with less wrinkles. Results are often visible by around 8 days, although it may take between 2- 3 weeks after the treatment for the full effects to be seen. The effects of botulinum toxin injections generally last for about three to four months, although the results can last longer with repeated treatments. Botulinum toxin may be less effective for people aged 60 and over because the muscles underlying the skin are not as firm.
