Cosmetic injectables with experienced dentists at Katoomba Dental Centre

Why consider Facial Injectables?

There are many reasons why you may consider facial injectables. Facial asymmetries, lip proportions, jaw dysfunction, general wrinkles, smokers and marionette lines, gummy smiles, and loss of volume are the most common reasons.

‘Injectables’ is the term used to describe substances inserted into the skin to rejuvenate the skin, lessen the appearance of wrinkles and improve asymmetry. Muscle relaxants contain a purified protein used to smooth and soften wrinkles.  Dermal fillers are designed to fill out and smooth away lines and wrinkles, giving volume and structure to the cheeks, lips, chin and other areas of deficiency. Due to advertising guidelines we are unable to directly mention the products we use, but you can contact our practice for further information regarding our treatments.

Injectables also form part of recognised treatment for temporomandibular disorder, associated with grinding and clenching of the teeth. Treatment with a muscle relaxant, in combination with other treatments prescribed by your dentist, can provide significant pain relief and improvement in jaw function.


Why should you visit Katoomba Dental Centre for cosmetic injectables?

Dentists are some of the best people to deliver this treatment. They are highly trained in facial anatomy, dimensions and structure and are highly skilled at administering fine needles.

Our clinicians are regulated under the strict regulations and ethical guidelines of the Dental Board of Australia and as such have completed comprehensive training in drug interactions and resolving associated complications if they arise. Our practitioners have also completed further study to perform cosmetic injectable treatments and attend regular education courses to upskill and remain current. We maintain a highly sterilised environment to deliver the latest generation of products for the best and safest treatment possible.

Our clinicians are able to perform cosmetic injectables at the same time as dental treatment for your convenience and discretion. After any cosmetic injectable treatment we provide a review post treatment assessment to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment and make any necessary amendments to ensure you are completely satisfied with the outcome.


Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxant injectables were originally designed for clinical use, long before their cosmetic benefits became popular: they are used to treat excessive sweating, migraines, teeth grinding and associated pain.

Muscle relaxants are a purified protein that when injected into the muscle leads to a temporary muscle relaxation. 

Relaxing facial muscles with muscle relaxant injectables is a quick, safe and effective way to smooth and soften wrinkles caused by repeated contractions of the facial muscles


Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are designed to fill out and smooth away lines, wrinkles and folds and add volume to the lips and other areas of deficiency.  Fillers are an excellent and efficient treatment for nasal labial folds (from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth), smile lines, lip enhancement and facial contouring like the cheeks and chin.

How does this treatment work?

A thorough facial analysis will be performed, taking into account all of your concerns and objectives before proposing a treatment plan.  The gel is injected into the treatment area in small amounts with a very fine needle, immediately lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and restoring volume.
