Anti-Wrinkle and Anti-Ageing Treatments
Anti-Wrinkle Injections such as Botox and Dermal Fillers, provide safe, non-surgical solution for lines and wrinkles.
Movement lines, for example, frown lines on your forehead and laughter lines around your eyes can be treated very successfully with Botox.
Dermal fillers work really well on permanent lines around the mouth, the so-called “lion wrinkle” between the eyebrows .
Wrinkle fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, chins, jaw lines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping sagging hands.
Why should I ask my dentist for anti-aging injections?
You may be wondering why dentists are beginning to administer anti-wrinkle injections.
Dentists are perfectly suited to give anti-wrinkle injections for three very important reasons:
- their knowledge of head and neck anatomy is better than any other clinical discipline
- they have very a steady hand
- they already have huge experience with injections
As Botox is a prescription only medicine in Ireland, only a dentist or doctor can administer it. Nurses or beauticians are not allowed to administer it. The same states for dermal fillers such as hyarolunic acid.
Dr Cormac Reynolds has trained in delivering Botox and Dermal Fillers injections with Visage Academy in Belfast and is delighted to be able to offer this extra service at Wellington Quay. You can find more about these treatments on Botox and Dermal Fillers pages.
Are anti-ageing injections painful?
An anti-ageing injection such as Botox is administered with a very fine needle and takes only a few seconds. It is not painful, but if you like, we can apply a numbing gel to the skin beforehand. Dermal filler injections have a numbing ingredient in them, so any additional anaesthetic is not needed.
Is there any downtime after an anti-wrinkle injection?
No. You can go back to all regular activities immediately after the treatment. You may experience mild swelling and redness, however, this typically settles after a few hours.
