What is anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle treatment is carried out with a small number of injections and is commonly referred to as ‘Botox’ (short for Botulinum toxin). This is a substance made from bacteria that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently softening and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Types of anti-wrinkle treatment.

At the Windmill Dental Practice we offer the following types of anti-wrinkle treatment using Botulinum toxin:

Your questions answered

Who should have anti wrinkle injections?

The treatment can be useful to anyone who wishes to reduce the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes.

What will the treatment involve?

Jacy or Fay will make a series of small injections into the muscles in your face. This takes only a few minutes.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is largely pain-free, although some experience a mild discomfort due to the small needle injection.

Are anti wrinkle injections safe?

Botulinum neurotoxin type A has been in medical use for more than four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified and trained professional, the risks are minimal. You may notice some soreness and swelling in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.

What happens after treatment?

You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity, saunas and alcohol for up to 24 hours. After 4-10 days you should notice an improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the result should last approximately 3-4 months.

What areas can benefit from anti wrinkle injections?

Most wrinkles are formed at 45 degrees from the muscle contraction. Where this occurs, anti-wrinkle treatment will work well.

How long do the results of an anti wrinkle injection last?

The results usually last for around three months, after which you may wish to return for another treatment.

Is ‘Botox’ the only option for people who want to reduce the appearance of their wrinkles?

Not at all, there are various options. It may be that dermal fillers or facial peels are possible alternatives for you. Jacy or Fay can discuss this with you.

What are the possible side effects?

Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
