Antiwrinkle Injections


Aside from perfect teeth, our faces have a huge effect on how beautiful our smiles are. Frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles on our faces are sure to make our smiles less than perfect.

That’s why many dentists now also specialise in Antiwrinkle Injections. The goal is to make smiles more natural and youthful. Dentists are specially qualified because of their extensive knowledge about the facial structure and anatomy. They’ve studied the blood vessels, nerves and muscles that specifically affect a smile.

How long the results last?

The treatment will remove frown lines, crow’s feet and other relevant wrinkles. After the procedure (usually just 30 to 60 minutes), the results will manifest within a few days or two weeks. The wrinkles will then be unnoticeable for the next 3 to 12 months.

Results may vary depending on the area treated and your body’s ability to respond to the treatment. That’s why dentists perform preliminary tests first before doing the procedure.

What happens during the treatment?

One of the most common ways to perform the treatment is by using Botulinum toxin type A. It could be injected at small doses in targeted muscles. The result is muscle relaxation (less muscle activity) which allows for the skin to flatten making the wrinkles less noticeable.

Before this is done, the dentist will perform an initial assessment and create a personalised treatment for you. Patients have different requirements and conditions (e.g. some patients might already have very noticeable crow’s feet).

Gummy smile treatment

Aside from making wrinkles less visible, Antiwrinkle Injections can also fix the gummy smile. The muscles at the upper lip are the targets. The result is that the muscles there become relaxed and weaker, thereby making the upper lip less capable of being raised too much.

In summary, it’s a promising quick treatment with possibly astounding results. It can further amplify your great smile and overall appearance. This can also make you feel more confident as you face the mirror and interact with other people.
