Anti-wrinkle Injections (Botox)
Smile Welling Dental Care resident implant surgeon Matthew Smith brings his wealth of knowledge and surgical know-how into the field of facial aesthetics. Matthew offers Botox treatments to tackle a range of conditions at the practice.
Anti-wrinkle injections involve using a very fine needle to inject tiny amounts of Botox into and around wrinkles on the face. Essentially, Botox freezes the tiny muscles into which it is administered, making them relax within a few weeks and then shrink over time. The procedure is relatively painless, with just a ‘scratch’ sometimes being felt if anything. Recovery is near immediate. Botox generally takes about 5 days to start working with peak effect at about 2 weeks.
In many cases, wrinkles can be made to disappear for months on end, making the face look smoother and younger. This works particularly well for forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and bunny lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows and frown lines) – the face often looks smoother, fresher and rejuvenated. The effect can last for up to 6 months and wrinkles can shrink further over repeated courses of treatment. Botox can also be used to improve the appearance of a downturned mouth, a high lip line or gummy smile and is often used to make the eyes look wider and more awake. The effects of Botox are not permanent. A typical patient might have between two and four treatments each year.
