The benefit of having the wrinkles on your face treated by dentists is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise manner. The most common minor side effects are tenderness or mild bruising around the injection site. In a very small percentage of cases there may be a complication called ptosis or drooping of the eyelid which may last a few weeks.
Treatments for wrinkle reduction are available for both men and women and help to smooth out creases in the skin such as vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead creases, eyebrow lift, crow's feet, bunny lines, vertical lip lines, depressed lip corners, pebble chin and vertical neck bands. If you're bothered about lines around the mouth (nasolabial lines) and or want your lips fuller then we can treat this with dermal fillers.
