Anti-Wrinkle Treatment


We are pleased to announce that Dr Rachel Perry of Belgrave House Dental  offers anti-wrinkle treatment to complement her interest in cosmetic dentistry.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Anti-wrinkle treatment is perhaps the best-known facial aesthetics treatment on the market. It involves using a purified version of the botulinum type A toxin to reduce unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face, restoring a more youthful appearance.

It is commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and to lift the jowls. It also has numerous other dental uses. It can successfully reduce a ‘gummy smile’ without having to resort to a surgical procedure. It can also reduce pain in the TMJ (jaw joint), where all other treatments have failed.

The result of anti-wrinkle treatment can take a few days to develop and lasts approximately three to six months. At this stage, lines and wrinkles begin to reappear as mucsle action returns and another treatment is required. The effects of the anti-wrinkle treatment last longer with continued treatment. 

How treatment works

Treatment with botulinum type A toxin works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles, forcing them to relax and smoothing out the skin to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The treatment is delivered in a series of tiny injections, which are precisely targeted to produce natural looking results. 

Why facial treatments at the dentist?

Dentists are uniquely skilled to provide these types of treatment for patients. They are extensively trained in the anatomy and physiology of the head and neck and are used to delivering painless injections.
