Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Woman looking at face in hand mirrorHave you noticed wrinkles appearing on your face as you age, around the mouth, eyes, forehead and cheeks? Want to turn back the clock and appear younger?
Anti-wrinkle injections can quickly and conveniently eliminate facial lines and wrinkles. These injections have been trusted by many doctors and medical practitioners for over 20 years.

Made from a naturally occurring toxin that serves to limit muscle movement, strategically injected anti-wrinkle injectables can help erase signs of ageing.

By seeking a licensed professional to have injectables given, you can be confident knowing that they have considerable knowledge of the musculature of the human face. They know precisely where the product needs to go to create the effect you’re seeking.

An Alternative to Plastic Surgery

If the thought of going under the knife to have plastic surgery makes you feel uneasy, you’re not alone. Any surgery carries risks. Plastic surgery is an invasive procedure, requiring anaesthesia and incisions.

As is the case with every type of surgery, there is the risk of infection as well as extensive recovery time. Bandaging is also required for plastic surgery patients. Feeling conspicuous often leads many to stay out of sight during the healing process. They also could lose valuable days and even weeks at work.

At Total Dental Care, we’re happy to offer anti-wrinkle injections as a great alternative to plastic surgery. These injections are convenient to receive whether you’re popping into our practice for a dental exam or a quick touch-up. Find out if you’re a candidate and learn more about the treatment below.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

The Botulinum toxin is a non-surgical treatment that blocks the nerve transmission to the muscles under the skin. Facial lines formed by the dynamic action of underlying muscles then diminish or disappear. Botulinum toxin injection first paralyses the facial muscles to help diminish the appearance of fine wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is injected into a specific muscle using a fine needle.
