Wrinkle-relaxing

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.

Why choose a dentist?

The benefit of having this treatment 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 manner. Our practice uses the botulinum toxin type A for this treatment, an injectable aesthetic solution.

How it works

Once injected into the skin, the botulinum toxin 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, crows' feet, and forehead lines.

The botulinum injection is quick and painless; usually lasting around 15-20 minutes and requires no anaesthetic. Results will usually start to take effect after a few days, although sometimes they may take around 14 days for the effects to fully take effect.

As it's not a permanent treatment, the effects will wear off over time, so it's recommended that the procedure is repeated every 3 months for effective results.
