If you want to reduce the lines on your face without having to resort to surgical procedures, the good news is that 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 which is a prescription only mendicine which acts by blocking acetylcholine, the chemical which transmits electrical impulses that cause muscle contractions. It is usually injected, into the face, to temporarily paralyse the muscles and has a temporary effect on the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.  It is also used to treat medical conditions ranging from Hyperhidrosis, neuromuscular disorders and migraines.

Areas on the face that can be treated include frown lines (vertical lines which form between the eyebrows), eyebrows, crows’ feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth and top lip, known as ‘smoker’s lines’.

As it’s not a permanent treatment, the effects will wear off over time.
