At Dental Sense, we know there is more to a beautiful smile than just great teeth so take advantage of the wrinkle reduction treatments that we offer at our practice. All of our treatments are undertaken in house by fully qualified practitioners in our calm & peaceful environment.
Relax those wrinkles with botox
Relaxing the facial muscles or smoothing away and filling out wrinkles and facial lines are a simple but effective ways to give patients a refreshed and natural look. Whether you need to soften existing fixed lines and wrinkles, or help prevent static lines from becoming established, the art of facial rejuvenation can help in the creation of harmony with your smile. The results last at least 3 months, and with continual use, longer-term benefits of wrinkle softening can be seen.
Are anti-wrinkle injectables safe?
Anti-wrinkle injectables are made from a drug made called Botulinum Toxin which has been approved and used for both medical and cosmetic purposes for over 20 years with no known adverse effects.
Will I be able to move my face?
Of course! The ‘frozen’ look many of us associate with anti-wrinkle injectables is only caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. Practitioners target small specific muscles that are responsible for unwanted lines and wrinkles only. This means normal facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or looking surprised will be unaffected. During your consultation your practitioner will talk you through how the treatment can be used for subtle effects so no one need know your secret.
How does it work?
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent. When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injectables?
Anti-wrinkles injectables are mainly used for the face. Forehead wrinkles, crow's feet lines around the eyes, and the '11 lines' between the eyebrows are the most popular areas, however other uses include lifting eyebrows, decreasing the 'orange peel' appearance of the chin and lifting the corners of the mouth.
What happens after treatment?
Before you leave the clinic at the end of your treatment, we will book you in for a free review appointment 2 weeks later, so that we can review the results of your treatment once it has taken full effect. We can also book your next appointment in 3-4 months times to ensure you maintain your new look!
