Let Us Give You Something Else to Smile About – Discover Cosmetic Injectables

At Lethbridge Dental Clinic, we love helping patients achieve their healthiest and most attractive smiles, and our cosmetic dental services are extremely popular. However, did you know we also offer cosmetic injectables? These are perfect as a stand-alone treatment or as the finishing touch to a cosmetic smile makeover, helping to subtly rejuvenate your facial appearance while diminishing the signs of ageing.

When to Choose Cosmetic Injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are ideal if you would like to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without going under the knife. Treatment is minimally invasive and quick to complete, providing noticeable results. We also provide these treatments to help patients with chronic migraines, tension headaches, or neck pain.

What Are Cosmetic Injectables?

Our cosmetic injectable options include antiwrinkle or muscle relaxing injections and dermal fillers. Each works slightly differently.

Muscle Relaxing Injections

Muscle relaxing injections are ideal for smoothing the appearance of fine lines around your eyes or forehead. They work by relaxing the muscle and reducing muscle contractions to create a smoother facial appearance. Muscle relaxing injections are ideal if you have lines affecting your upper lip or vertical lines between your eyebrows. They can also be very effective in reducing tension headaches and migraines.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, we produce less collagen, so the skin loses some of its natural plumpness, gradually developing deeper lines and skin folds. Dermal fillers help restore the skin’s plumpness and are ideal for reducing the appearance of well-established and deeper wrinkles and folds in the skin.

Deciding Which Treatment Will Work Best

When you visit our dentist, we can examine your facial features and discuss your aims and desires for this treatment to determine which option will work best. Sometimes we may recommend a combination of both treatments to help provide a naturally refreshed appearance. Combining both treatments can provide excellent results.

Will I Look Natural Afterwards?

Some people may worry their facial features will look frozen afterwards, but we can reassure you this won’t be the case. We prefer a “less is more approach” to cosmetic injectables, meaning we only use minimal amounts of muscle relaxing injections or dermal fillers to enhance, not change, your appearance. Afterwards, you will still be able to express emotion and move your facial features normally. Dentists are the best people to provide these cosmetic injectables because of their in-depth knowledge and training of facial structure and muscles and how they work together, so you are in safe hands.

What to Expect When You Have Dermal Fillers or Muscle Relaxing Injections?

We use extremely fine needles for these treatments, so the procedure is minimally invasive. We can numb the areas being treated to ensure you feel comfortable during the procedure. Afterwards, it’s best to avoid rubbing the injection site, and you shouldn’t lie down afterwards. It’s also better to avoid strenuous exercise for the remainder of the day. Otherwise, you should be able to go about your daily routine without any problems.
