Botox ‘is safe and effective’


People looking for a safe and effective way to look younger can try Botox, it has been suggested.Botox provides a healthy and non-surgical way to improve a person's facial appearance, one expert in the field has said.

Speaking to NBC Connecticut, plastic surgeon Gary Price said the safety of the process means many women and men can enjoy the effects of Botox injections without worrying about side effects.

"Botox is a very safe and effective way of stopping muscles in the face from making wrinkles that we don't like and it can be used very selectively to take those wrinkles away," he explained.

The process is also better than a facelift, as it can emphasise areas which surgery cannot, like the cheeks, the expert said.

Dr Price suggested Botox can even create a more youthful appearance than going under the knife is able to.

MSN 9News recently reported that Botox is now being used to treat acne scars by relaxing the muscles surrounding pitted areas marked by damaged tissue.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800426786-ADNFCR

Flossing ‘important for health’


Flossing 'important for health'Flossing teeth regularly is important to not only prevent the need for cosmetic dentistry, but as one specialist has warned, for overall health also.

Dr Mehmet Oz explained that if people only use a toothbrush, they will often be merely cleaning the exterior of their teeth, MSN reports.

Instead, he recommended individuals use dental floss to thoroughly clean the mouth and remove any remaining bacteria that has been missed.

“No matter how thoroughly or long you brush your teeth, you’re missing a good portion of their total surface,” Dr Oz said.

The doctor cautioned that poor oral hygiene can increase a person’s risk of developing heart disease, a theory which has been supported by recent studies into the condition.

Research by Professor Richard Watt from University College London found a connection between lifestyle habits and the likelihood of developing cardiovascular problems and he noted in particular a significant link with dental health.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19848112-ADNFCR

Brits ‘choosing teeth whitening’


Many Britons are choosing to whiten their teeth in an effort to keep their smile as dazzling as possible.

Karen Coates, dental advisor for the British Dental Health Foundation, said that staining is one of the main reasons that people choose to have their teeth whitened.

She commented: "Even curry has the potential, if it’s highly coloured, to be staining [the teeth]. Many people do have their teeth whitened and there are more instances of it certainly."

Ms Coates made her comments following the publication of research by Align Technology – the makers of Invisalign braces – showing almost half (46 per cent) of women between the ages of 25 and 54 feel embarrassed about their teeth.

The editors of Good Housekeeping recently published advice on making a person’s smile brighter on and noted that not all teeth will be suitable for teeth whitening, as people with fillings or grey – rather than yellow teeth – might not react well to the treatment.
