If you want to reduce the lines on your face without having to resort to surgical procedures, the good news is that facial rejuvenation techniques can soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Our qualified medical practitioners can provide a consultation to determine what treatments are best for you. The benefit of having this consultation, and any resulting treatments, done by dentists is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise and safe manner. Consultation can cover various treatments, but if wrinkle reduction injections are recommended and chosen, we will carry them out at the practice. Our practice uses reliable wrinkle reduction injections for this treatment. Here is how it works:
Once injected into the skin, the wrinkle reduction injection relaxes the tiny facial muscles which cause expression lines by blocking the nerve impulses in them leaving the skin looking smoother.
Areas on the face that can be treated include frown lines (vertical lines which form between the eyebrows), eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth and top lip, known as ‘smoker’s lines’.
The injection is quick and painless, usually lasting around 5-10 minutes and requiring no anaesthetic. Results will usually be seen in a few days, sometimes taking between 4-7 days for the effects to be seen.
As this is not a permanent treatment, the effects will wear off over time. It is, therefore, possible for the procedure to be repeated every 3 months for effective results.
