Cosmetic injectables are a popular treatment for reducing wrinkles, improving facial contours, and enhancing natural beauty. They’re a nonsurgical method of achieving significant results without any downtime.
Me Dental Spa offers a few types of cosmetic injectables for wrinkles, including:
The skin loses collagen with age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Dermal fillers can instantly plump up the skin where it’s needed and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They can also improve facial contours. Some dermal fillers even help your body make more collagen on its own.
Dermal fillers can treat facial folds, like the two “laugh lines” around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and can improve lip plumpness, fill in the cheeks as they lose volume, and they have other uses as well.
Dysport temporarily improves the appearance of moderate-to-severe glabellar lines (the two vertical frown lines between the eyebrows).
This injectable works by disrupting the nerve signals to the muscles that control that area, decreasing muscle activity and wrinkle smoothing.
Botox® is classified as both a medical treatment and a cosmetic injectable. It works similarly to Dysport but has wider applications.
In terms of improving physical problems, the team often injects Botox to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching). Both conditions can be quite painful and may result in other oral health problems if untreated. It helps relax the muscles involved and can prevent these problems from progressing.
For cosmetic concerns, Botox is also highly effective. A high lip line can make your smile look like it’s dominated by your gums (a “gummy smile”). Botox can reduce activity in the muscles around the mouth to stop your lip from pulling so high when you smile, which balances your smile and eliminates the gummy appearance.
Botox can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth.
Cosmetic injectables are quite well tolerated. For example, with Botox or Dysport, you’ll feel a small pinch that quickly subsides. The team may recommend applying ice to help soothe any lingering soreness and reduce swelling. You can return to normal activities right away.
