Remove the Signs of Aging with
We all want to look our best and keep our skin looking young, but sometimes it can be tough to deal with the signs of aging.
Over time, repeated facial muscle movements can cause dynamic lines and wrinkles to form around the eyes, forehead, mouth, and frown areas. These wrinkles can make us look older than we are and cause us to feel self-conscious.
No one likes getting older, but the good news is that there are anti-aging treatments available to help us look younger without having to go through surgery. Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe way to get rid of these wrinkles and look younger without invasive surgery. They are a naturally occurring protein that is used cosmetically to smooth out the skin by eliminating creases, dynamic wrinkles, bunny lines, and frown lines that develop over time. At Maylands Dental Centre, we use only the highest quality cosmetic products and have a dedicated team of experienced professionals who will help you get the results you want.

Frequently Asked Questions
Anti-wrinkle treatments involve injecting a muscle relaxant into the active facial muscles. Muscle relaxants are created from purified proteins and injected with very fine needles through the skin. This protein reduces the activity of muscle fibres by inhibiting the transmission of nerve signals that connect them.
Over time, reduced muscle contraction relaxes the overlying skin and decreases the appearance of wrinkles. As a result, you will look years younger. In addition, a wrinkle relaxer treatment also acts as a preventative measure and prevents further wrinkles from forming.
Your cosmetic treatment will begin with an initial consultation, where we will discuss your objectives and answer any questions you may have. We will review your medical history and assess the area of concern. Your dentist will then create a personalised treatment plan according to your specific needs.
The anti-wrinkle injectable treatment process is quick and straightforward. It takes about 10–45 minutes to complete the procedure. It entails using a very thin needle to inject a naturally purified protein into exact areas.
The procedure rarely requires anesthesia due to the minimal discomfort involved. Your skin will be washed, and ice will be applied to the affected area. Then, the wrinkle relaxer will be injected with a small needle. You will just experience a slight stinging sensation during the anti-wrinkle injection treatment. This soreness will pass in a matter of minutes. Following each session, detailed aftercare instructions are provided.
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most non-invasive and safest cosmetic procedures available. The active component is Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is used to treat various medical conditions and is a highly popular non-invasive procedure around the world.
It is injected into the muscle beneath the wrinkle to relax it and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, if not performed by a trained practitioner, this usually safe and successful treatment might go wrong. Therefore, it is crucial to receive treatment from a qualified, certified, experienced practitioner or a reputable facility.
After the anti-wrinkle treatment, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection sites. After a few hours, it will go away, and any soreness can be remedied with a cool compress.
The anti-wrinkle injection treatment takes 15 to 45 minutes to complete, with a quick recovery time. After the surgery, you can resume your normal daily activities. The first time you receive treatment, a follow-up session is recommended to ensure that your results are satisfactory and determine whether any dose adjustments need to be made.
It’s vital to remember that while anti-wrinkle treatment can be done in one appointment by the dentist, the desired results take 10–14 days to appear.
