Anti Wrinkle Injections
Muscle Relaxant, Anti Wrinkle Injections
It’s common knowledge that as we grow older we gain more lines or wrinkles on our faces. These lines and wrinkles may then cause further skin deterioration and various other aesthetic issues which give you an unwanted aged appearance. This in turn can affect your self-esteem and in the way you interact with people on a day to day basis. For that reason, Muscle Relaxant or Anti Wrinkle Injection is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, with millions of treatments administered each year globally. Muscle Relaxant or Anti Wrinkle Injections (wrinkle prevention injections) may be used for the treatment of:
Facial line and wrinkles
Improving the appearance of soft tissues around the mouth, Wrinkle treatment
Gummy Smiles (Hyperactive lip muscles can be relaxed, ensuring your lips aren’t pulled back dramatically and eliminating the ‘gummy smile’
Fine lines and wrinkle around the mouth
Teeth Grinding, Bruxism (This treatment also helps in softening the square jawline)
How does it work?
After your initial consultation with our dental and facial aesthetic practitioner, a tiny and safe needle will then be used to inject the Muscle Relaxant or Anti Wrinkle into the targeted areas. Your comfort is our number 1 priority and throughout the entire process our highly qualified practitioner will continually check in with you to ensure there are no concerns or discomfort. After having the anti-wrinkle/wrinkle prevention treatment, there is no downtime associated with this procedure, and people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Based on your areas of concern, your cosmetic practitioner may recommend a series of treatments for optimal results in your follow up appointment which will be held 2 weeks after your first Anti Wrinkle treatment. Please note all patients are required to sign a patient consent form before undertaking the procedure.
There are various health conditions which may affect the procedure. Due to this, all patients are required to complete a Consultation form prior to any clinical treatment which will then be assessed by a qualified practitioner.
What is Muscle Relaxant Injections (anti-wrinkle / wrinkle prevention) and what will it do?
Muscle Relaxant Injections Type A (anti-wrinkle/wrinkle prevention) is derived from the bacteria CB - but don’t worry there isn’t any bacteria in it at all! It works by blocking neurotransmitters in the target muscles which reduces the strength of muscle contraction. Sometimes the contraction of muscles causes the wrinkle of skin, and by injecting small amounts of this material, the muscle contraction is relaxed and therefore smooths out the skin.
How long should it take before I see results?
It takes between 24 – 72 hours for botulinum toxin (anti-wrinkle/wrinkle prevention) to take effect. At times, it can take as long as 14 days for the full effect to be observed.
Is the treatment safe?
At our Camberwell Dental and Facial Aesthetic Clinic we only use sterile and single use equipment throughout the procedure.
