Anti-Wrinkle Injections In CBD
Among the most popular treatments performed by cosmetic dentists is anti-wrinkle injections. Our Sydney CBD dentists can help you to restore your face to a more youthful, softer and naturally refreshed appearance.
What people benefit from anti-wrinkle treatment?
Keeping the face smooth, supple and youthful is no easy task. Wrinkles form as the skin loses its elasticity due to ageing and sun damage or can occur as a direct result of jawbone atrophy (reabsorption) after prolonged tooth loss.
Cosmetic injectable treatments such as anti-wrinkle therapy provide a non-surgical, convenient way of smoothing out those inevitable static wrinkle lines that occur as we age. These include areas such as the forehead, around the eyes and mouth without the need to undergo cosmetic surgery such as a facelift.
Our anti-wrinkle treatments in the Sydney CBD area can be combined together with dermal fillers to treat both wrinkles and age-related volume loss that all contribute towards the visible signs of ageing.
So if you do start to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and forehead then a series of anti-wrinkle injections by our skilled dentists here in Sydney CBD can help you to turn back the clock on your ageing process.
Anti-wrinkle treatment – what exactly is it?
Anti-wrinkle treatments are commonly referred to as their trade name. It is in effect a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. When injected into the skin, it has an amazing effect on the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles.
The science behind how anti-wrinkle treatment works
Anti-wrinkle treatment works by blocking the transition of chemical messages sent from the nerve to the brain requesting the muscle to contract. When the message is intercepted, it causes the muscles to stay in a rested state. Take frown lines around the eyes for example. When the face forms an expression, the muscles around the eye area contract pulling the eyebrows inwards and downwards. This causes either vertical or slanted lines or wrinkles. No muscle contraction equals no tell-tale lines.
What can anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney CBD fix?
Cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatment is most often used to treat visual signs of ageing including:
- Glabella (frown) lines that appear on the forehead
- Vertical squinting or scowling lines
- Dynamic wrinkles (crow’s feet) that occur around the corner of the eyes
- Lip lines often associated with smokers that form between the top lip and nose and a
- Lower face treatment, which improves the appearance of the upper neck area.
Commonly asked questions about our anti-wrinkle treatments in Sydney CBD
What’s the main difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?
Anti-wrinkle treatments act as a temporary muscle relaxer and receptor blocker which prevent certain facial muscles from contracting. Dermal fillers on the other hand are volumisers, used to plump up areas of the skin such as the lips in order to rehydrate, smooth and soften the face. They are often used together to create a more youthful version of you.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
While treatments are designed to block the nerve receptors, they are a temporary fix. Therefore patients visiting our Sydney CBD dental clinic should expect to renew their treatment every 12-20 weeks if they want to maintain their fresher youthful appearance.
Are anti-wrinkle treatments safe?
Absolutely. In the right hands, cosmetic injectables are proven, safe and reliable so you should have nothing to worry about. Our Macquarie Dental team will always talk you through your treatment and spend time answering any questions or concerns you may have anyway.
What age is a good time to start?
While most clients begin seeking treatment in their early forties, it can be performed safely on patients who are both younger or older. As a result, some patients start as soon as they see the first signs of wrinkles in their 30’s while it isn’t unheard of for patients to undergo treatment in their 20’s to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Alternatively, other patients in their 50’s and 60’s who have visible signs of ageing come to us to eradicate some of their wrinkle lines.
