Everyone knows that as we grow older we gain lines or wrinkles on our faces and our flesh can become a bit saggy. These unwanted changes may cause further skin deterioration and various other aesthetic issues that give you an aged appearance. This in turn can harm your self-esteem and in the way you interact with people as you go through your daily life.
For that reason, at Prevent Dental Suite we now offer two effective anti-wrinkle injections, which can be used alone or within a larger Facial Rejuvenation to make your smile and appearance look younger!
With anti-wrinkle injections, a wrinkle-free face is within your reach!
Anti-Wrinkle Injection Procedures
Anti-wrinkle injections include two main kinds of procedures: injection of muscle relaxants (also called botox injections) or dermal fillers.
Botox – Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin, which is in the form of a purified protein. It is often suggested for patients who desire to decrease lines on their face caused by years of repetitive and occasionally overactive muscle contraction, without needing to undergo surgical procedures.
While Botox is injected into the facial muscles, it doesn’t really affect the muscle at all. Instead, it blocks the transmitters between the motor nerves that ‘work’ the muscles. There is no loss of feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, which means that the muscle can no longer contract.
When muscle does not contract, the dynamic motion that causes wrinkles in the skin, stops. The skin then begins to smooth out, and approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above those muscles becomes calm and smooth. The Botox treatment lasts for approximately three to four months, at which time another injection is needed.
Botox also has important dental applications in cases of TMJ and bruxism, and for patients who suffer from chronic TMJ and facial pain. Botox can also be used in aesthetic dental cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line, for denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures, lip augmentation, and can be used in some orthodontic cases in which retraining of the facial muscles is needed.
Dermal Fillers – The second of the two main injections is also a key tool in achieving a more youthful look. Dermal fillers fill and plump up your facial wrinkles and can build a smoother skin and younger appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to create fuller lips, and shape facial, neck, and hand contours.
Dermal fillers help reduce facial lines and restore youthful volume and fullness to your face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose fat beneath the skin. This leaves facial muscles working closer to the skin surface, with the result that smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
Other influence on the look of facial skin include sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle.
What dermal fillers can do:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Decrease contour deformities on the face
- Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

The anti-wrinkle injections offer a number of benefits such as:
