If you want to reduce the lines on your face without having to resort to surgical procedures, then this treatment for facial rejuvenation techniques can soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
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.
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 a more serene, youthful look.
This treatment can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and treat crow’s feet, frown lines, smiles lines, forehead lines etc.
The botulinum injection is quick and painless; usually lasting around 5-10 minutes and requires no antiseptic. Results will usually be seen in a few days, sometimes taking between 4-7 days for the effects to be seen.
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 result.
The muscles which are affected normally give better results with a few sessions of botulinum toxin.
