Wrinkle relaxing injections (Botulinum toxin type A), commonly known as ‘Botox’ are a very effective form of anti wrinkle treatment. These injections effectively relax your facial muscles including the creases on your forehead, smoothes out skin and eliminate deeper lines. Wrinkle relaxing injections are more commonly used for lines and creases which are far deeper and more apparent than mere creases in the skin. Your cosmetic dentist will assess whether wrinkle relaxing injections or dermal fillers will be more suitable for your requirements.
Are there any adverse effects?
In a small number of cases there may be some localised bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site. This usually disappears very quickly.
Wrinkle relaxing treatments have been used for thousands of patients over the last 15 years and have an excellent safety profile.
Do the effects of the treatment look artificial?
No. Unlike some surgical facelifts, this kind of treatment is very specific and works only on the muscles that are involved in producing the facial lines that you want to reduce. Other muscles are not affected and this means that your usual facial expressions remain the same.
How long will the effects last?
Initially the improvement will last 3-4 months. You will notice a gradual fading of the effect and at this stage you can return for another treatment if you want to. With repeated treatments the effects last longer.
