Anti-Wrinkle Injectables Treatment in Melbourne

Pain-Free Injections

Aspire One Dental is delighted to be able to offer anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers in our clinic.

Dentists spend their whole lives improving the appearance of the smile and the overall face, and every day we work towards the goal of giving pain-free injections.

It is thus a natural extension of our clinical skills and vast knowledge of the head and face anatomy to include within our services injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and better define the face suffering from the effects of ageing due to deteriorating skin health.

The term “anti-wrinkle injections” or “muscle-relaxant injections” is actually a descriptive name for Botulinum toxin (BTx).

Botulinum toxin (BTx) is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum ( *there are no bacteria in this medication)

Anti-wrinkle Injections are injected in small doses into specific muscles which are hyperactive and are causing wrinkles in the overlying skin.

Botulinum toxin ( BTx) treatment is used for the treatment of hyper dynamic lines have become present at rest which looks tired and aged. This is NOT a treatment designed solely to stop facial expression as faces are meant to move naturally but to allow the skin to heal.

The required amount is unique to each patient and not dependent on age, severity of problem, and gender. There is No amount that is standard for any particular injectable area, although we may always use the same amount to start a new client with.

Anti- Wrinkle injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles, making them appear less noticeable.

The injections can be done ages 18 to 65 as a temporary treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. However, BTx can be used to treat other facial wrinkles as well, such as the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes (crow’s-feet) and the forehead furrow.

When anti-wrinkle injections may be a good option:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose
  • Crow’s-feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines*
  • Smoker’s Lines*
  • Reverse lip line (downward smile line)*
  • Dimpled chin*
  • Gummy Smile*
  • TMJ/Bruxism/Teeth Grinding*

*off label uses

Every stage of the process is precisely documented and detailed clinical records taken – we treat the face with equal precision as we treat the teeth and gums.

Our aim is to eliminate signs of ageing without eliminating facial expression and we will work hard to find exactly the right treatment and dosage of injection to suit each individual patient. For this reason it is difficult to give an estimate of costs without a detailed facial examination and medical history.

Dr Peter Nguyen uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of BTx into specific muscles. By carefully choosing the muscles to treat, the doctor weakens only the wrinkle-producing muscles to try and preserve your natural facial expressions.

The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including your facial features, the extent of the wrinkling and the specific area being treated. For example, crow’s-feet usually require two to three injections. Furrows in your forehead could take five or more injections.

BTx injections take about 10 to 15 minutes. You may experience mild pain with the injections, but most people find the discomfort tolerable. The procedure requires no anesthesia.

You’ll notice results within a few days, but the full effect takes about two weeks.

Results aren’t permanent, however. Once the Botox has taken effect, it takes three to six months for the affected muscles to begin functioning again. So to maintain your look, you need follow-up injections every few months.

Our Philosphy

It is not about making someone look completely different or 20 years younger, but rather about helping them to appear like a fresher, more relaxed, healthier and revitalised version of themselves

Our Goal

Our ultimate goal in facial injectable aesthetic treatments is for a patient’s friends and family to notice how great they look without ever knowing exactly what is different or has been done.

BTx injections require no downtime.

Expect to resume your normal daily activities immediately. Do no exercise for several hours after your injections. You may have headaches for a few hours after the treatment. Take care to move the muscles that were injected for at least 2 hours after the injections
