Facial injectable treatments
Dr Virginia Ward has undergone further studies in specific areas of facial injectables including muscle relaxants and dermal fillers. Facial rejuvenation treatments are used to temporarily soften expression lines and define facial contours. The certified training ensures education and experience in injection techniques. With existing knowledge of the maxillofacial area (jaw and face), dentists have the training and skill set required to deliver facial injectable treatments, safely and comfortably.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive treatment used to temporarily relax key facial muscles. These treatments reduce the appearance of fine lines across the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Treatment is not permanent and lasts approximately four months. After a second treatment, this may extend to six months, depending on the strength of the muscle.
Dermal filler injections a non-invasive treatment used to temporarily plump up the facial lines and restore volume. These fillers are used around the mouth and enhance the shape of the lips. Dermal fillers are biodegradable and are not permanent. The effects typically last between six to nine months.
All treatments are performed in a sterile clinic environment in the dental surgery.
An initial consultation is required to discuss a personalised treatment plan. Any questions you may have, the risks involved and the procedures explained.
What can I expect on the day?
Treatment may be administered via several injections across the facial region and you may also be given dental anaesthetics, which will aim to cause numbness to parts of your face for several hours, before wearing off completely. It is advised that you do not eat until you fully regain feeling. The treatments are non-invasive and designed to provide temporary natural enhancement.
Ongoing treatment may be required to fully address your areas of concern. This will be reviewed and administered at your follow-up appointment, two weeks after your treatment. It is most likely that you will need to pay for any follow-up treatments.
Please make sure you follow post-operative instructions that will be given to you and please contact us if you have any concerns, after treatment.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
