Anti-Wrinkle Injection & Prevention

The best anti-wrinkle treatment in Sydney at Clear Dental

When it comes down to medical treatments and your health in general, there is no substitute for quality care from qualified professionals. Here at Clear Dental, we provide our patients with only the highest quality anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney while still striving to keep the costs down to a reasonable level. So, take your time to read a little bit more about what we do here, and our friendly staff will be waiting to answer any questions you may have afterward.

What are wrinkle treatment injections?

When we talk about the anti-wrinkle treatment, we mean injections by Clostridium Botulinum. They have been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States since 2002, and since then have quickly made their way around the world due to the relatively low cost for the results they produce.

They are thought of as a relatively safe, although not permanent, treatment for the regular signs of aging, particularly in the face.

Before it was approved for cosmetic use, Clostridium Botulinum was initially used to treat other health conditions such as profuse sweating, muscle spasms, and other involuntary muscle contractions such as in eyelids or other areas of the face. Here at Clear Dental it is most often related to cosmetic use rather than a medical necessity.

How Does It Work?

In basic terms, injection for face wrinkles works by stopping the chosen muscles from being able to contract. When a certain group of muscles is not allowed to contract, then it cannot create wrinkles on the surface of the skin.

The Clostridium Botulinum molecule is too large to be absorbed through the skin which means it cannot be applied topically, through a cream or otherwise, so it must be injected directly into the targeted area of the body.

You cannot safely give yourself wrinkle treatment injections. Only a medical professional will be able to determine the appropriate dose and depth of the injections, as well as having the expertise to be precise in their measurements and locations.

Again, this is merely a basic introduction to how it works. Our staff here at Clear Dental can walk you through the entire process and explain everything down to the last detail, so be sure to get in contact with us if you would like to know more. And don’t forget to ask if there are any special wrinkle injection deals in Sydney on offer at the time of your enquiry.

How Much Time Is Involved?

This question needs to be broken down in to separate parts:

“How long will it take before effects are seen?” It will take a week or two before you can see the full effect of the injection for face wrinkles.

“How long will it last before another treatment is needed?” For most patients, it will continue to be effective for about three to six months. During this time, the muscles are slowly starting to become more active, which causes wrinkles and other markings to become noticeable again. However, due to the muscles shrinking from inactivity, those wrinkles should still look less noticeable than they were before treatment.

Is It Toxic?

You may have heard people talking about Clostridium Botulinum over the years as being “bacteria” or a “toxin” and perhaps that was enough to make you drop the idea altogether. As with most stories about new technologies or medical treatments, there is a mix of truth and fiction there. Even some of the true stories involve people who simply went searching for cheap anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney with no regard for the quality of the product they were buying.

It is correct to say that Clostridium Botulinum is a toxin, and it is made from bacteria. However, as with anything else in the field of medicine, the term “toxicity” depends on dosage. For example: alcohol is a toxin, but it is not even close to becoming fatally toxic in the doses that the vast majority of people take in. Many useful substances can be said to contain toxins, such as opiate pain medication as another example, but the abuse of those substances is the larger problem, not the ingredients which go in to making them.

Can I Get Wrinkle Treatment Injections Done Locally?

Yes, of course. There is generally no reason to travel domestically or internationally to receive anti-wrinkle injections because the difference in price will be minimal. This isn’t like some other forms of cosmetic medicine in which you may find incredibly cheap deals on treatments performed in foreign countries.

Most people feel more comfortable staying in familiar surroundings while undergoing any kind of medical treatment, so that’s just another reason to stay local. After all, if anti-wrinkle injections cost about the same in Sydney as you would have to pay elsewhere, why would you ever leave the comfort of home?

It can’t be said enough that we do not simply focus on having the cheapest anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney with complete disregard for the health of our patients. Your health is very important, and our reputation for excellence hinges on the fact that we put quality care at the top of our list.

FAQ

  • Are anti-wrinkle injections painful?

Since facial skin is very sensitive, Clear Dental uses only 30-gauge needles for anti-wrinkle injections because they are the smallest hollow bore-needles available on the market. However, everyone’s pain tolerance level is different. Some injections cause almost no pain, while others hurt quite a bit. The positive side of this procedure is that the pain does not last long, and the patients will feel either minimum or no pain afterward.

 

  • I heard that anti-wrinkle injections are toxic. Are they dangerous?

Toxicity is a matter of dosing. The dosage used for cosmetic procedures is very small, and it can’t cause any major adverse effects. There are no death cases of getting anti-wrinkle injections. Last year alone, 6.1 million Americans got them.

Botulism is a form of poisoning that results in excessive consumption of un-purified protein. Thus, if you don’t can your own veggies, you have nothing to worry about.

 

  • How much time does it take for the results to be seen after the procedure?

After anti-wrinkle injections, you will see the first results on the next day and full results – in 5-7 days.

 

  • How long does the anti-wrinkle injections effect last?

If it’s your first-time experience of receiving injections, the results will last for 3-4 months. The patients who have been receiving anti-wrinkle treatments for a few years will get longer-lasting results.

 

  • What will happen if I discontinue getting anti-wrinkle injections after my first treatment?

If you discontinue getting procedures, the effects will wear off, and your wrinkles will become visible again. You WILL NOT get new wrinkles though, as some people tend to believe.

 

  • Will it become obvious that I’ve got an anti-wrinkle procedure?

At Clear Dental, we strive to achieve the “you-look-better- but-I-don’t-know-why” effect. anti-wrinkle injections do not stretch the skin. They only decrease muscle activity, so rest assured, you won’t have any drastic changes associated with more invasive facial procedures.

 

  • Are there any restrictions for receiving anti-wrinkle injections?

Yes. You are not allowed to get this treatment if you:

– have an allergic reaction to anti-wrinkle injections ingredients.

– have some skin infection on the planned injection site.

 

  • Can I get anti-wrinkle injections if I am pregnant?

It is unlikely that they will give any serious side effect to your baby. However, Clear Dental recommends abstaining from the procedures if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.
