Cosmetic Injectables in Victoria

Cosmetic Injectables such as Botox and Dysport are made from a purified natural protein and are commonly used to relax muscles by blocking motor nerve impulses. The treated muscles relax after one to three days and the effects typically last three to four months. Many patients enjoy the convenience of having Botox or Dysport treatment done at the time of their hygiene appointments. My Victoria Dentist offers cosmetic injectables treatment at our dental clinic in Victoria.

Cosmetic injectables can be used to treat the following:

Prevent or Decrease Wrinkles and Signs of Aging

Botox and Dysport are used to prevent, reduce and eliminate the appearance of facial lines such as crow’s feet, forehead creasing, or vertical frown lines between the eyebrows by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle. Botox is used cosmetically to reverse signs of aging as well as by younger patients in their 20s and 30s to avoid the development of deep wrinkle lines. Botox and Dysport can also be used to raise the eyebrows to accentuate the eyes or narrow the appearance of a wide jaw by relaxing the muscles on the outside of the jaw.

Reduce TMJ Pain, Clenching and Grinding

Botox can be used to relax the jaw muscles and decrease both the frequency and intensity of clenching and grinding. In some cases, using Botox dramatically improves pain in the jaw joint (TMJ) as well as tooth pain associated with hyperactive jaw muscles.

Reduce Migraine Symptoms

Botox is commonly used to reduce the frequency and duration of migraines. Botox is placed around pain fibers that are involved in headaches and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission, preventing the activation of pain networks in the brain.

Reduce the Appearance of a Gummy Smile

Many patients feel that they show too much gum when they smile. Using small amounts of Botox, it is possible to reduce how high the lip travels when you smile, dramatically reducing how much gum tissue shows.

Costs of Cosmetic Injectibles

Botox and Dysport cost $10/unit. The number of units needed is highly dependant on the individual patient and the type of treatment desired. For example, the most common treatment is for the frown lines on the upper face associated with the eye brows, known as the glabella frown lines. Usually this treatment requires approximately 30-40 units for women and 40-50 units for men. A brow lift requires approximately 30 units for most people. Treatment for TMJ pain, migraines, and excessive clenching often requires 100-150 units.
