Anti-wrinkle injections have been traditionally used to correct and treat dental issues such as TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) pain, grinding, clenching & gummy smiles. As the years have progressed there has been a broader shift in achieving overall facial rejuvenation and balance in addition to dental smile enhancement and traditional aesthetic and functional dental treatments.
Who better to treat you with anti-wrinkle injections than your Dentist. Dr Vicky knows your facial anatomy better than any other health and beauty professional.
Dr Vicky has over 6 years experience in applying dermal anti-wrinkle injections and has an eye for detail. She is currently partaking in her Fellowship with AADFA.
Treatment areas of your face are precisely measured, graded and require great skill to determine facial proportions. Achieving optimal anti-wrinkle treatment results are dependent on your muscle strength and tone.
Photographs and/or videos are always taken at your treatment sessions to allow Dr. Vicky to better determine your unique needs to prescribe your specific treatment options. Complete results are seen within 10 -14 days.
What Is Botulinum Toxin?
Medical Grade Botulinum toxin is a purified protein. Most importantly, there are no bacteria, alive or dead in this product.
Anyone who is lactose intolerant (who only suffers from an upset tummy) can still use botulinum toxin. Lactose allergy is more directed to those people who are more seriously affected, i.e. Anaphylaxis.
This does not mean that you cannot get the procedure done. It means that you have to use a particular brand of botulinum toxin which does not have lactose included in the formulation.
The medical-grade products we choose to use are very safe, with minimal potential side effects/ complications and predictable clinical outcomes.
Only qualified practitioners are allowed to purchase prohibited substances.
Is It Painful?
There can often be some anxiety associated with the concept of having injections. Fortunately you’ll be happily surprised and your anxiety will be quickly eased as you experience Dr Vicky’s gentle and effective techniques.
How Often Should It Be Administered?
Initially it is recommended that you have quarterly reviews where you will most likely need to have a touch up. Eventually the time gap between appointments will get bigger. So you may require treatment every 6 months and maybe even longer.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
|Treatment Areas (include but are not limited to)|
|Glabellar/ Frown Lines|
|Eyes/ Crows Feet (both eyes)|
|Forehead Crease Lines|
|Mouth Lower Frown Lines|
|Smokers Lines- Lips|
|TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)|
Note: It is very common that your muscle tone in your face is unbalanced. Therefore you may require additional units to balance out a treated area or areas 2 weeks after your first anti-wrinkle treatment. Additional costs will apply at that visit. Number of units administered by Dr Vicky is results driven and is based on achieving optimal outcomes for you.
