As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and can start to droop and sag. This is a natural part of ageing, but can cause some people to lose confidence in their appearance. The effects of ageing can be quickened by excessive alcohol consumption or by tobacco use. Wrinkles, a sign of aging, is formed because of the repeated contraction of the underlying muscles. Anti wrinkle injections can help to reduce the lines on your face and help you achieve a even better smile when combined with other cosmetic dental procedures.
What are Anti Wrinkle Injections?
Anti Wrinkle Injects contain the purified form of botulinum toxin, and are sometimes referred to as botox injections.
How Do Injections Work?
Cosmetic injectables are used to help reduce and eliminate creases and wrinkles in the skin. Cosmetic injections consist of muscle relaxants that block chemical signals from nerves that instruct the muscles to contract. In essence, cosmetic injections cause the facial muscles of the face to temporarily relax and therefore allowing the skin to repair itself, remove/reduce existing wrinkles and become smoother overtime whilst the muscles underneath are unable to contract.

Anti Wrinkle Injections and Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder
Anti wrinkle injections also serve as an effective treatment for severe pain resulting from multiple oral health conditions. Teeth clenching, teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain have been shown as treatable using botulinum toxin injections. The treatment relaxes the muscles in sore areas by blocking the nerve endings connected to the muscle fibres. This slows down the muscles’ overactive state, often for several months. When nerve endings regenerate, they are usually more relaxed and this further reduces any clenching or grinding that is the source of pain.
