Anti-wrinkle Injections in Camden and London
As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of ageing. Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process which occurs as your skin gradually loss collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which are responsible for volume and elasticity. They are also a result of repeated facial muscle movements like laughing or frowning and can also be accelerated by exposure to the sun, excessive stress, diet, and weight loss.
Gone are the days when only celebrities used Anti-wrinkle injections. Injectable for Anti-ageing treatments are now an affordable procedure that anyone can access who wants to fight sign of natural ageing and reduce the appearance of unwanted lines. In recent times wrinkle removal treatments are one of the fastest-growing cosmetic treatments used by millions of people worldwide and is the UK’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, it’s suitable for most people who want wrinkle removal.
NW1 Dental Care offers anti-wrinkle injections with genuine products in a clinical environment performed by dentists who are highly qualified medical professionals to carry out this treatment.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are also known as ‘Botox’ which is short for botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring purified protein that causes the muscles in the face area to relax by blocking the nerve signal that causes muscles to contract, consequently removing wrinkles. It is one of the most popular and growing cosmetic treatments for the removal of wrinkles in both men and women.
Here at NW1 Dental Care we offer anti-wrinkle injections to treat the following areas:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet lines around the eyes
- Frown lines, the “11 lines” between the eyebrows
- Eye and Nose area
How Does Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?
The muscles on your face contract whenever you concentrate, squint, or frown. With years of these frequent contractions along with environmental factors like exposure to the sun, wrinkles and lines are formed becomes permanent.
At NW1 Dental Care, the Botulinum toxin of choice is Botox®. During the treatment very small amount of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the target areas of the patient using an extremely fine needle. This blocks the impulse from the nerve to the facial muscles, reducing the contractions that cause wrinkles. After the treatment the skin over the muscles looks smooth and even leading to a swift and noticeable improvement in the appearance of persistent frown lines and wrinkles, helping men and women alike to achieve a healthier, more youthful appearance. The number of injections depends on the area being treated. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and the potential full effect can be seen after 2 weeks.

The results last anywhere between 3-4 months. However, most people come for repeat treatment as the effect of anti-wrinkle injection wears off and wrinkles come back to pre-treatment state.
The actual procedure is very quick and relatively painless. If required we can apply a topical anesthetic to help reduce any sensitivity.
However, post-treatment you may have some soreness in the injectable area which should subside quickly.
The most common appearance in the areas are redness and slight swelling which goes down after a few hours. The actual treatment can take 2-14 days to develop. After which skin will look smoother giving the face a more relaxed, refreshed appearance.
- After treatment try not to touch the areas as the risk of infection is increased.
- Avoid heavy physical exercise
- No saunas or face masks.
- No lying down for at least four hours

- The injection area is infected
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients
- It is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women
- It is not suitable for anyone with a neuromuscular disorder
The most common side effect is mild bruising on the area when you had injectables but that goes away quickly. Very rare but some patients report mild headaches which also subside in 24hrs.
The procedure is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women. It is not suitable for anyone with a neuromuscular disorder.
BOTOX® Injections are quite popular in men and the number of men undergoing anti-wrinkle treatment has tripled in recent years. The treatment works the same way as it does for a woman. However, the most common areas for male Botox users are forehead, 11’s (between the eyebrows), and Crow’s Fee.
Anti-Wrinkles Injections or Botox Injections contain purified bacteria that freeze muscles thus it works by relaxing the muscles under the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
Dermal Filler on other hand contains hyaluronic acid which is a protein found in the cell of living organisms and as we age we produce less of this acid causing thinning of the skin. So Dermal fillers are used as temporary volumiser injected into the skin to add fullness.
Yes definitely. Botox is a safe treatment and it’s FDA approved since 2002 for treating wrinkle lines. However, it should ALWAYS be undertaken by a qualified medical professional. Dentists who offer botox are perhaps best-suited healthcare professionals as they are anatomically trained and have good knowledge of facial musculature, vasculature ad nerve supply and so they are becoming increasingly recognized as one-stop-shop for Botox, fillers, and dental treatments.
Not at all, you can opt for dermal fillers as an alternative. You can book a facial aesthetics consultation with one of our experienced dentists who can advise which treatment is best suited for you.
