As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of aging. It’s an inevitable part of life and can be quite the knock in confidence when you start to notice lines around your eyes and mouth. These wrinkles are a side-effect of your skin losing elasticity, hydration and structure. Factors such as UV damage, smoking and alcohol consumption also further the aging process.
Our qualified facial aesthetic clinician can help combat these signs of aging with anti-wrinkle injections (also known as muscle relaxing injections). These are the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed worldwide. At Chiswick Dental, we aim to create a softer, natural look to maintain your normal facial expressions whilst also seeing significant improvement to your lines and wrinkles.
Muscle relaxing injections are also very effective for treating bruxism (teeth grinding). They can help to relax your jaw and improve the pain you feel from clenching and grinding your teeth.
At your first appointment, we will discuss your preferences and what you hope to achieve from the treatment, before formulating a treatment plan tailored to you.
You will be treated by our qualified clinician, who will administer your anti-wrinkle injection. The injections temporarily relax specific muscles, leading to a smoother appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. Prior to your treatment, topical anaesthetic will be used to ensure you are as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
Your results can be seen in as little as four days. Over time, the effects of your treatment will wear off and will need to be topped up. A single treatment sees results which last for approximately four months.
