Facial Aesthetics

Not only do we excel at enhancing the appearance of your teeth and providing patients with a healthy smile, but we also offer consultations to discuss treatment options for lines and wrinkles.

Regain Confidence in Your Appearance

We provide facial treatments that help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face. As part of our service offerings, we have non-surgical treatments for patients who want to discuss what they can do to combat facial lines.

Louis possesses a thorough understanding of facial anatomy, and is aware of the critical nature of a thorough assessment.

A Treatment for Facial Lines and Wrinkles

At St. Andrew Street Dental Practice, we can discuss various treatment options to deal with lines and wrinkles.
Our experienced facial aesthetics practitioners treat the three main areas of the face:
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow's feet lines around the eyes
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
The following are the major benefits of using our in-office wrinkle treatment:
  • Effects that are customisable and reversible.
  • It is a non-surgical option to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Sedation or anaesthesia are not required; however, you may choose to numb the region with an anaesthetic lotion or a cold pack before being injected
  • Discomfort is often minor and transitory. The majority of patients report the feeling as akin to that of a pin prick, and the treatment is quick

How does this facial treatment soften the appearance of wrinkles?

Using a tiny needle, the facial practitioner injects the treatment into the muscle that creates the wrinkle. The treatment blocks nerve impulse transmission to that region, weakening the muscle. As the muscle becomes weaker, the surrounding skin relaxes, gradually softening the wrinkles.

What should you expect during a facial aesthetics appointment?

Our facial aesthetics service starts with a consultation with our in-house practitioner. We welcome you to discuss the lines and wrinkles you want to minimise, and ask questions about how we can address your concerns. We will need you to tell us about any medications you are on, as they may interfere with the facial aesthetics services we offer.

Once we determine that you are a suitable candidate for muscle relaxant injections, we carefully administer the treatment using thin medical needles. The amount of product used depends on several factors unique to you, which will be discussed during your consultation. 

During treatment, there will be a small prick with each needle; they usually do not cause much pain. Following your appointment, you will be able to resume your normal activities, just be sure not to rub or massage the treated area for at least 24 hours.

These treatments start working in one to three days, with temporary results that typically last three to four months. Patients may elect to be treated again as the effects wear off.

Beautiful Skin is Always In

Our team will listen and analyse your needs and explore the advantages of the different treatment options available. We provide a warm welcome to new patients and make every effort to accommodate last-minute appointments.
