Normal facial expressions such as smiling or frowning, can cause lines appearing around the eyes or the forehead. As time goes by these lines can start to be more persistent, and become more evident as wrinkles on the skin. 

Wrinkle relaxing injections contain a purified protein, which is manufactured much the same way as a vaccination.   

This relaxes these wrinkle-causing facial muscles, which in turn reduces their pull on the skin and makes the skin look smoother. 

The most commonly treated cosmetic areas are: 

  • Frown
  • Forehead lines
  • Crows feet (wrinkles around the eyes from smiling)
  • Bunny Lines (wrinkles either side of the nose)
  • Downward Turned Smile
  • Gummy Smile
  • TMJ/Grinding/Clenching

As dentists we are in the very fortunate position to use muscle relaxants to treat TMD (Temporomandibulat joint disorder). This reduces the strength of the muscle and as a result reduces the intensity of clenching/grinding and therefore can reduce headaches and pain in the muscles of the face. Grinding causes shortening of teeth, which has the effect of making us look older. 

Muscle relaxants can also be used to treat a “gummy smile”, this is where all the upper teeth and gums are shown when smiling. A small injection either side of the nose can take care of this easily.
