Anti Wrinkle Injections Sydney

Wrinkles around the mouth and face tend to give an aged appearance and often draws the eye from a beautiful smile. How do anti-wrinkle injections work? They relax the muscles underneath wrinkled skin allows the skin to repair itself and as a result, the appearance of wrinkles fade.

What are wrinkle relaxants used for?
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyes (glabella)
  • Crows feet around the eyes
  • TMJ / grinding (see below)
  • Smokers lines
  • Dimpled chin
  • Gummy smile
  • Bunny lines
  • Square jaw
  • Downward turned lips
  • TMD, facial muscle pain and headaches (when the cause is suspected to be muscular in origin)

How do I know if I need wrinkle relaxers?

  • If you notice lines/wrinkles at rest then this is an indication that relaxing the muscle underneath may help to soften the appearance of the line.
  • If you suffer from TMD / Jaw Pain, wrinkle relaxer may be an answer! TMD is a dysfunction and pain of the jaw joint and associated muscles. It is a complex condition and often involves stress, genetic factors and trauma to the joint. Day time and/or night time grinding is often associated and leads to tooth wear and fractures, a reduced lower face length, facial muscle tenderness and chronic headaches/migraines.

Treatment Options for TMD

Splint/Nightguard: A thin hardened guard worn at night to protect the teeth and relaxes the muscles of the face which helps to reduce headaches and muscle tenderness.

Muscle relaxant injections: injected every 3-4 months help to relax the muscles which are overworked and as a result reduce headaches and muscle tenderness. Administered only after a thorough investigation and when the cause is suspected to be muscular in origin.
