Are your age lines becoming a concern? Is your skin not feeling quite as tight as it once was? Beautiful skin dresses up a smile, and no one is more qualified than a trained dentist to enhance your face. National Dental Care offers cosmetic facial injectables at selected practices.
Cosmetic facial injectables
Our dentists offer facial injectables to help soften smile lines and frown marks and make you look more relaxed and youthful.
This treatment was once reserved for jaw joint issues such as acute jaw tension or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Now certain cosmetic injectables are available through dentists for a wider range of facial treatments.
You visit your dentist on a regular basis to make sure those teeth are in tip-top shape. Similarly, it is important to keep up your facial injection visits to keep your skin looking good.
Are facial injectables for me?
Facial treatments are not for everyone, but if you want to feel more refreshed, this is an area where your dentist can definitely help out.
National Dental Care specialists have had extensive training in oral facial anatomy and aesthetics. They are familiar with your smile and perception of how you should look, so they are perfect for helping you achieve the look you want.
Be sure to discuss facial rejuvenation treatment with your National Dental Care dentist to make sure you have realistic expectations of what the injections will do and how much it will cost.
How long does it take for the injections to work?
Botox injection wrinkle treatments are not instant. They take a few days to show results and around a week for the full result.
Your National Dental Care specialist will explain the process before your treatment, and the results you can expect.
How long will my treatment last?
Botox wrinkle injections last from between three to six months, as the effect of the botox gradually fades. Seeing a specialist on a regular basis and receiving subsequent treatments can make the process last longer, with fillers extending as much as 18 months.
Why should you consider seeing your dentist for cosmetic treatments?
Your dentist is already a specialist in understanding the muscles around your face, particularly the nerves, vascular system, and the physiology of your face. Because they already have a rapport with you, a facial injection can go very smoothly, as they’re able to understand what works for your face, understanding if the enhancements are improving the smile they’ve seen for so long.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! In fact, recent research suggests that cosmetic injections have minimal side effects in less than one percent of cases.
What are the possible side effects?
While cosmetic facial injections rarely inflict hurt on anyone, a small number of individuals may feel a stinging sensation that dissipates quickly. In some extremely rare situations, you may experience bruising, skin colour changing, or the injected area getting a little lumpy. If you have any of these symptoms, please contact your dental specialist immediately.
What's inside a cosmetic injection?
Facial injectables use either Botulinum Toxin or dermal filler, depending on the area and treatment required by the dentist. They act as a wrinkle relaxer, smoothing out lines for a period of three to four months.
How quickly do you see results?
Although results may vary for different patients, treatments typically take hold in just three to 10 days as the muscles and nerves in your face gradually spring back to life.
How long do facial injections last?
Facial injections are a temporary solution, giving your face a return to youth, but only for around three to six months. Seeing a specialist on a regular basis and receiving subsequent treatments can make the process last longer, with fillers extending as much as 18 months.
