Facial Injectables

Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are available at Whites Dental Care to help you look and feel your best.

What are Anti-wrinkle Injections?

As we age, there’s increased development of expression lines, that some may say add character. These lines can show up as wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet and smile lines.

Non-surgical injections have become an increasingly popular way of relaxing these lines. The product we use is a naturally occurring toxin; it acts as a muscle relaxant and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

We also use anti-wrinkle injections to address jaw clenching or teeth grinding (also known as bruxism). These actions can cause you to slowly wear away your teeth, causing you significant dental problems down the road.

How do Facial Injections Work?

The anti-wrinkle injectable works by blocking the nerve impulses that stimulate muscles to contract. The muscles then relax and the lines produced during facial expression are less pronounced.

What are Dermal Fillers?

We use hyaluronic acid, a natural product in the skin that has the capacity to hold water. As a result, plumpness is created. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid diminishes and so does its ability to hold water. Hyaluronic acid fillers are considered to be safer and better tolerated than collagen. Therefore there is no need to test for allergies beforehand.

Fillers are used to plump up or produce volume in particular areas of the face, including the cheeks and lips. Fillers are often used along with anti-wrinkle injections, which are used to relax muscles that contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

Fillers can also be given to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are permanently formed. Here are some of the facial issues that we can effectively address with injectables:

  • Bruxism: Wrinkle relaxers are used to minimise the movement or clenching of the masseter muscle. This not only reduces the symptoms of teeth grinding but also decreases the size of the masseter muscle and trims the jawline over a few weeks.
  • Facial shape changes: Did you know that clenching or grinding your teeth could alter the shape of your face? The result could be a more masculine or square shape. Our treatments can give your face a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
  • Gummy smiles (reduction): An injectable can be used to relax the upper lip muscle and, as a result, decrease the appearance of a gummy smile.
  • Frown Lines, Forehead Lines, and Crow’s feet: The appearance of facial lines can come from the following: muscle use, skin damage or skin elasticity as a result of aging. Our wrinkle relaxers block nerve impulses, which prevent the muscles from contracting.
  • Lip lines (smoker’s lips): Smoker’s lips develop when the lips pucker to smoke. With an injectable filler we can plump up the skin in the area, reducing wrinkles.
  • Lips that lack volume and definition: Would you like to have fuller, more luscious lips? Treatment with an injectable can help you achieve the pout you desire.
  • Marionette lines: These lines that develop on the lateral side of your lower lip could make you look sad or angry, although you may not be. We can inject a filler into the region to boost volume and elevate the skin.
  • Nasio-labial folds: When you frown, a tensing of your facial muscles takes place. The result is the development of deep creases in and around your mouth and chin. Dermal fillers can improve facial appearance.
  • Poppy (dimpled) chin: Injectables can reduce the appearance of chin dimples and creases for a more youthful look.
