Do you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing? Talk to our dentists about cosmetic injections in Sydney CBD.
Sun exposure, smoking and other lifestyle factors can contribute to a prematurely aged appearance. If you want to reduce wrinkles or restore volume to your lips or face, our dentists at Sydney CBD Dental can help you to reverse the signs of ageing using cosmetic injections.
We'll give you all the information you need about anti-wrinkle injections, lip augmentation and other injectables so you can decide if a treatment is right for you. You can also choose to combine cosmetic injections with teeth whitening, veneers or other aesthetic treatments for a complete smile makeover.
What are the benefits of cosmetic injections?
Cosmetic injectables are non-surgical treatments that can help to restore a more youthful look or change other aspects of your appearance that you're not happy with. They may also be used to relieve muscle pain or discomfort related to problems such as tooth grinding (bruxism) or TMJ dysfunction.
Our dentists in Sydney CBD offer two types of injectables that work in different ways to modify your appearance.
These injections relax certain muscles in the face to smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming, particularly in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes ('crow's feet') and around the nose ('bunny lines').
Wrinkle injections may also be an option for treating a 'gummy smile,' if your upper lip rises high above your teeth and reveals more of your gum than you prefer.
Wrinkle and lip enhancement
These injections restore a natural protein to the skin that reduces with age. This helps to 'fill in' wrinkles and other sunken areas and can add volume to the face or lips. This treatment can target 'smile lines' or 'marionette lines' around the mouth as well as enhance pouting of the lips.

How do cosmetic injections work?
When you visit our dentists for a consultation, we'll make sure you understand how anti-wrinkle injections and other injectables work so you can decide if they are the right option for you. We'll also make sure we fully understand the changes you want to make so we can develop your personalised treatment plan and help you to set realistic expectations.
Cosmetic treatments using injectables usually involve a series of injections in targeted areas of the face or lips. The number of injections depends on your individual needs and the treatment option you choose. Shorter treatments may only take a few minutes and may be scheduled during a lunch break, but others may be more involved, especially if you're having other cosmetic treatments at the same time.
What to expect after cosmetic injections
We recommend that you avoid lying down or strenuous exercise for the first few hours after treatment. You may experience a mild stinging sensation or swelling after the injections, but this usually goes away within 12 hours, and any redness or bruising of the skin should only last a few days. If you notice other unexpected side effects, make an appointment to see our dentists.
Despite what you might have heard, having anti-wrinkle injections does not freeze your face or prevent you from making facial expressions. We'll make sure you understand the possible risks before you agree to any treatment at our dental clinic.

Injectables for TMJ disorders
Our Sydney dentists also offer injectables to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with jaw problems, including jaw tension and temporomandibular (TMJ) dysfunction.
Although still considered an alternative treatment for TMJ problems, limited studies have shown that injecting affected areas of the jaw or face can help to decrease pain and increase jaw movements for several months afterwards.
If you feel pain or discomfort when moving your jaw, injectables are just one of many possible avenues our dentists could explore, depending on what's causing your jaw issue and the specific symptoms you have. Find out more about TMJ treatments.
