Anti-wrinkle injections minimise the appearance of wrinkles and lines to give you a relaxed, rested more youthful appearance. A natural protein is carefully injected into specific muscles, allowing those muscles to relax.
At Mills Road Dental, only medical trained, highly experienced dentist perform our cosmetic injection procedures, so you can relax knowing that you’re in safe hands.
When it comes to cosmetic injectables, discretion is key. All faces should have some wrinkle and expression lines so as not to look artificial. We’ll make sure we give you natural-looking results that allow you to look fresh, not frozen.
When injected into the muscles, anti-wrinkle injections (aka wrinkle relaxers) inhibit the message that travels to your nerves that tell your wrinkle-causing muscles to contract. This disruption allows your muscles to stay relaxed, allowing your skin to look a lot smoother – and also giving the wrinkled skin time to repair.
Well over one million people worldwide have experienced the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections. Allergic reactions are extremely rare and there are no major side effects associated with the product.
Fewer wrinkles, smoother skin
Antiwrinkle injections are commonly used to reduce wrinkles from:
- crows feet
- frown lines
- smokers’ lines (vertical lip lines)
- Bunny lines (horizontal lines on the nose)
- neck bands (platysma muscles)
In the hands of a skilled practitioner, anti-wrinkle injections can also do wonders to change the shape of the face. For example, they can achieve the following:
- nonsurgical brow lifts (usually incorporating dermal fillers to elevate the brow and anti-wrinkle injections to courage elevation of certain muscles above the brow)
- jaw slimming (square jaw reduction by relaxing the matter to muscle)
- minimising the appearance of the dimpled chin
- addressing drooping mouth corners (DAO muscle)
- bruxism (jaw clenching – which can damage the teeth, cause headaches and spinal problems)
Your anti-wrinkle procedure
Your initial consultation at Mills Road Dental, Martin (near Gosnells) will be a little longer than subsequent appointments. We’ll need to allow time to discuss your concerns, for the practitioner to inspect your face, propose a treatment plan, and give you plenty of time to ask any questions.
Often, patients opt for a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
The injection time will only take approximately 10 – 20 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.
All surgical procedures carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
When will I see results?
You’ll start to see the first results within 2 to 3 days. For the maximum effect though, you’ll need to wait anywhere between 7 to 10 days.
How long does it last?
Anti-wrinkle injections last between 3 to 4 months. You can choose to come back for a top up whenever you feel the need. We suggest further injections no later than four months after your last consultation.
