Anti-wrinkle injections are used to reduce lines and wrinkles that form in the upper face.
These lines appear because various muscles contract to form different facial expressions.
These lines over time become longer and deeper, even when the face is at rest. Anti-wrinkle injections relax wrinkles causing muscles to help refresh your facial appearance.
With high levels of practical skill and anatomical knowledge of the facial region, our dentists are the very best practitioners to be providing facial rejuvenation therapies in a safe and hygienic clinical environment for both aesthetic and therapeutic needs.
Injectables & Fillers
The dentists at St George’s Dental understand the complexities of oral-facial anatomy, particularly the muscles, the nerves and the vascular system. This means that a dentist with additional cosmetic training is highly qualified to provide cosmetic injectable treatments, particularly around the lips and mouth.
As an existing healthcare provider, we understand your needs so we can work with you to offer a comfortable experience when having cosmetic injectables.
Cosmetic injectables are not permanent, with results lasting between several months up to a couple of years depending on the treatment area and method used.
There are two main types of cosmetic injectables – Botox and dermal filler.
Botox, or botulinum toxin helps to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by ‘freezing’ the muscles. This reduces the action of the muscles that cause deep wrinkles in the first place.
Botox treatments normally last three to four months.
Dermal filler typically uses hyaluronic acid and similar substances to fill in and plump up areas that have lost volume, which had lead to the saggy, wrinkly appearance. Fillers are popular for the lips, wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks that have lost volume.
Depending on the type of filler, the treatment results can last anywhere from a few months up to two years.
Before deciding on any cosmetic injections it is important to discuss treatment options with a professional. Understanding your desired outcome and treatment expectations will help our team to offer the best treatment option for you.
Ask one of our dentists for more information on cosmetic injectables at your next appointment with St George’s Dental.
