As we get older our body naturally produces less collagen, the connective protein that lends our skin its strength, texture, and elasticity. The results of this loss are the fine lines and wrinkles which affect every one of us, and are one of the most visible signs of aging.
Lines on the face tend to be the most pronounced and obvious, due to the constant movement and shifting of our facial movements causing fine lines and deeper wrinkles to appear in the skin above. Not only do dental care providers have a thorough and in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, we are experts in comprehensive, sensitive patient care when it comes to the distress that unwelcome appearance changes or signs of aging can cause. At Dame Street Dental your facial rejuvenation is in safe and expert hands.
Your cosmetic dentist, who is additionally trained in facial aesthetics techniques and artistry, can administer Botulinum toxin (most often known as Botox) as a targeted injection treatment to reduce and reverse the appearance of wrinkles. Botox used in this way works by relaxing the underlying facial muscles, and in doing so softening deep wrinkles and smoothing fine lines in the skin above, preventing them from becoming established. This cosmetic procedure is entirely non-invasive and non-surgical, and only requires your dentist to delicately and precisely inject the Botox into the targeted problem areas. Some patients may also wish to discuss more extensive and flexible enhancements in other areas of their face via treatment with Dermal Fillers
Botox is most commonly used in a dental practice to treat the upper portion of the face – that is the appearance of ‘frown lines’ in the forehead, or around the eyes to address ‘crow’s feet’. It typically takes between 3 to 4 days following the injection to see the full aesthetic effects of your treatment (which can then last for 4 months, on average, although frequent repeat treatments generally extend the lifetime of each treatment). Other uses of Botox injection include it's utility in treating jaw joint pain, in patients who suffer from excessive grinding or clenching of their teeth, particularly at night in a condition known as bruxism.
While aging is a natural part of life, discomfort, anxiety, or distress about our skin does not have to be. Safe, routine, and effective facial rejuvenation treatments with Dame Street Dental can reliably and dramatically soften entrenched wrinkles and smooth out your skin, allowing you to look years younger and maintain a natural, youthful glow.
Your dentist will first carry out a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gum, and bone health, which can involve the taking of a dental X-ray if any present concerns or problems with your oral health are indicated. Any questions, concerns, or doubts that you have regarding Anti-wrinkle Injections, or indeed any other issue, can be addressed by your dentist during this appointment.
For every dental specialty offered by our experienced and highly trained clinical team - from restorative to preventative to cosmetic - our dentists’ aim is to work as your partners in your oral health and wellbeing. This means that we will work with you and take your ideal smile goals as our guide when recommending treatment to help you achieve those goals.
Your dentist will make a full assessment, taking into consideration your smile goals, needs, and preferences, to produce a full treatment plan, including an estimated time until completion and a full cost breakdown, as well as if you would benefit from any other treatment in addition to Anti-wrinkle Injections. Due to the nature of dental work and required recovery times following certain procedures, your dentist will always schedule any necessary, restorative, and invasive treatment to be completed prior to your Anti-wrinkle procedure.
Your dentist will advise you on the best approach and application of Anti-wrinkle Injection treatment to achieve the end results you are after during your initial consultation. Our cosmetic dentists use their considerable skills and artistry to provide the most natural looking results, to subtly and effectively enhance your appearance and restore a fresher, more youthful look.
Once it is time to schedule your appointment for your Anti-wrinkle treatment, the procedure itself is a relatively straightforward one. A local anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area or areas, making the entire procedure completely pain-free. Your dentist will then expertly administer the Botox material just under the skin in the area being treated, skilfully ensuring that the most you will feel is a slight scratch.
Depending on where the Botox is being placed and the number of treatments, the procedure on each target area will typically be completed within 5 to 10 minutes. A smaller dose of Botox is used if injecting directly into the muscle of your jaw, as a treatment for chronic teeth grinding or bruxism.
As the Botox smooths the appearance of wrinkles by causing the facial muscles to relax, the effects will improve in the days following your treatment appointment, with most patients seeing results between 4 days to 2 weeks after their treatment. After your appointment, most patients can expect some mild redness and small bumps in the application area for about 15 to 20 minutes after the procedure, and in some patients mild bruising may also appear. Your dentist will provide you with full aftercare instructions and guidance at the conclusion of your treatment appointment, so that you can begin enjoying your new look with confidence.
Not at all! Our dentists are highly trained and their expertise in this area ensures that the application techniques they employ will have you feeling little more than a slight scratch as the Botox is inserted.
You can expect mild redness and bumps in the application area for about 15 to 20 minutes after the procedure, and in some cases mild bruising may also occur. If this should happen this effect will fade by itself at home over a number of days – although your dentist will also provide you with full aftercare instructions following your treatment, for minimising any uncomfortable effects and speeding your body’s natural recovery process along.
As the Botox acts by causing the facial muscles to relax, thereby smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, the effects and appearance will build and improve in the days following your treatment appointment.
On average, most people will see results between 4 days to 2 weeks after their treatment.
On average, you can expect your Anti-wrinkle injection treatment to last and visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles for 4 months, before you may need a top up treatment. After repeated treatments, the interval between appointments can usually be prolonged, as repeated use tends to provide longer lasting cumulative effects.
Not long at all – the treatment procedure itself is relatively straightforward, and you should expect it to take about 5-10 minutes to treat each target area.
Anti-wrinkle Injection treatment is tried and tested worldwide, undergoing millions of use trials, and has been proven to be an extremely safe and predictable procedure for radically and visibly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, every one of us will develop wrinkles and fine lines to some degree as the strength and elasticity of our skin decreases over time. The extent and onset of wrinkles can be influenced by a number of factors, however, which can be mitigated to greater or lesser degrees, and which your dentist will be happy to discuss with you during your consultation.
The most common factors increasing the appearance of wrinkles are:
While the two procedures are similar on the surface, in terms of their application process and their effectiveness at treating fine lines and deeper wrinkles, Anti-wrinkle Injections are a better solution for those signs of age that can otherwise feel inevitable – such as crow’s feet, frown lines or smokers’ lines. Botox also provides certain therapeutic benefits, and can be used as a treatment for chronic teeth grinding, particularly at night, which can not only cause stress and pain of the jaw, but damages and wears down teeth over time.
Dermal Fillers on the other hand, while also capable of smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, can also be used to produce deeper effects – adding volume or shape to lips and cheeks, or augmenting and adding definition to a jawline, nose or chin.
You are assured that you are in the safest possible hands when you have Anti-wrinkle treatment carried out by your dentist. A dentist’s knowledge of facial anatomy is unparalleled, a vital quality in ensuring the safe administration of injectables, particularly the fine needle injections called upon for Anti-wrinkle treatment. Your dentist has undergone years of specialist training in the expert use of their hands for precise, fine-motor tasks when carrying out healthcare and aesthetic procedures.
A healthcare provider such as your dentist is also certified and specifically trained in the administration of injection treatments for wrinkle and fine line removal. While over-the-counter creams and gels will often claim and can provide mild, short-term Anti-wrinkle effects, these commercial anti-aging beauty products are still moderately expensive, without offering the effective, long-term results of a professional, transformative Anti-wrinkle Injection treatment.
The cost of your Anti-wrinkle treatment at Dame Street Dental will depend on the number of facial areas that you are getting treated, which your dentist will have recommended at your initial consultation based on your own desired treatment end goals. The total cost for this procedure is determined as:
