Anti-wrinkle Treatments

Dento-facial aesthetic treatments at Withers Dental

Our AADFA certified dentists can help you achieve a younger, more refreshed face with anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Quick Facts

Our dentists strive to create natural looking results, not ‘frozen faces’.

Facial injectables can make uneven eyebrows or crooked smiles more symmetrical.

Anti-wrinkle injections are also very useful for patients with facial tension pain, migraine and clenching/grinding issues (bruxism).

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections utilise purified proteins to reduce shallow and deep wrinkles or ‘dynamic lines’. Our dentists are experts in facial anatomy and work with each patient to achieve his or her desired outcomes – drooping, sagging and fine lines, for example.

Why should I choose Withers Dental for my facial anti-wrinkle injections?

Our dentists have undergone extensive training in the latest injection techniques and products from around the world. They have also studied skin anatomy and the substructures of the face in order to achieve the desired outcomes. We allow ample time to discuss your goals and allay any concerns about the procedures and products.

How would you frame your smile?

Our team offers a range of facial aesthetic treatments using dermal fillers and other injectables to improve the appearance of:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Bumpy nose
  • Volume loss of the cheeks
  • Gummy smile
  • Smile lines (nasolabial lines)
  • Smoker’s lines (lip wrinkles)
  • Tear troughs
  • Uneven eyebrows
  • Lip definition and volume correction
  • Chin/Jaw definition
  • “Black triangles (large gaps between teeth)”

How do they work?

Anti-wrinkle injections work by decreasing the activity of the muscles that contract to deepen facial wrinkles. Our dentists inject customised quantities in specific points of the face. The skin will become smoother in the following days and weeks and even more so with repeated injections. Deeper lines may need two to three treatments over a six to 12 month period.

We strongly encourage a good skin care regimen and sun protection to maintain healthy looking skin.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

The effects of anti-wrinkle injections will last four to six months. The effects of the initial two to three treatments may last only three months. However, studies have shown that injections performed at regular intervals will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

What are the side effects?

Any side effects are temporary, very few and minor. There is usually some redness and swelling of the treated sites (similar in appearance to mosquito bites) which disappears in minutes. Small bruises may appear in areas of high vascularity. Your dentist will discuss possible side effects with you before injecting.

Less than one per cent of patients will experience a temporary partial eyelid droop.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the safest treatments performed in our clinic. To avoid unwanted results like drooping, sagging and the frozen look, it is very important to find a doctor who is skilled and well experienced, as well as having exemplary understanding of the facial anatomy, not only of the skin, but of all the underlying structures including muscles, glands and skeletal structures.
