Bella Vista Skin Clinic

Anti Wrinkle Injections and Dermal filler

At Bella Vista 7 Day Dental Centre we offer treatment with muscle relaxant injections for either cosmetic procedures or therapeutic procedures (off-label).

Facial ageing is an inevitable process that occurs in every single individual. It is not necessarily desirable, and the majority of people do not want to age “gracefully.”
 

As we age, we develop wrinkles around our face, which is the result of the hyperdynamic action of the underlying muscle. Anti-wrinkle injections aim to temporarily freeze the muscle and allows the surface of the skin to reappear smooth and wrinkle-free.

Dr. Shaz is passionate for knowledge, especially when it comes to her field in the region of the Head and Neck. Furthermore, she has participated in courses to enhance her knowledge more extensively in anatomy.

Our Associate dentist Dr. Mia also offers services with anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler.
 

Why visit our Dental surgery for your anti-wrinkle procedures?

Dr. Shaz knows head and neck anatomy as attained through her dental degree. Furthermore, she has participated in courses to enhance her knowledge more extensively. She has dissected cadavers after injecting muscle relaxant and filler content to gain an exceptional understanding of facial structure and anatomy at the Sydney Eye Hospital in 2016. She has undertaken further educational courses relevant to muscle relaxants and the use of dermal fillers within the scope of dentistry.

The goal of Dento-facial aesthetics is to achieve skin rejuvenation and harmonious proportions rather than to freeze muscles and overfill facial structures.

Dr. Shaz offers free cosmetic consultations as each patient’s treatment needs are different. Dr. Shaz can guide her patients to realistic outcomes and attend to her patient’s concerns.
 

What areas do you treat with anti-wrinkle injections?

To stay compliant within the scope of Dentistry and within the Dental Board of Australia’s acceptance of treatment modalities, we can offer anti-wrinkle injections for the following areas:

Hyperdynamic Lines to the upper third of the face, including:

  • Glabella: Frown lines
  • Frontalis: Forehead Lines
  • Periocular: Lines around the outside corner of the eyes (“crow’s feet”)

Clenching and grinding:
Muscles of mastication: to freeze the forces of the muscles responsible for chewing, particularly during the night time when patients are asleep and cannot control undue forces.

Gummy Smiles:
Bilateral to the Ala of the nose: in patients, particularly post-orthodontic treatment, who have a higher smile line, or a non-symmetrical smile line
 

What product does your clinic use?

Dysport : AbobotulinumtoxinA

Dysport is approved in 69 countries, including Australia, and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.

It is a fast-acting muscle relaxant, 2-3 days, and the results may last up to 5 months. It is readily available and, more importantly, a fraction of the price compared to other brands and from a professional, delivered platform.
 

Anti-wrinkle injections

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

For the majority of our patients, the anti-wrinkle dose lasts 3-4 months.
In some cases, it may last shorter, depending on muscle activity and lifestyle factors such as exercise and smoking status.

Is there any downtime?

Patients pop-in during their lunch breaks and return to work immediately.

Our professional advice is to skip the gym for the day after treatment and to avoid manipulating the area for the rest of the day.

 

Dermal fillers

What areas do you treat with Dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to fill the voids that occur as a natural process of ageing, resulting in loss of volume.

We offer treatment limited to the lower third of the face, particularly to the lips. This is under the Dental Board of Australia and within the practicing scope of a dentist.

How long does dermal filler last?

Dermal Fillers last 4-6 months as we use medical grade filler product.

In some cases, it may last shorter, depending on muscle activity and lifestyle factors such as exercise and smoking status.

Is there any downtime?

Some patients experience swelling and slight bruising if they are predisposed to bruising easily.

Patients usually do not go back to work but are absolutely fine to return the next day to their daily duties.

Patients typically receive dermal filler under local anaesthesia or with a high percentage of topical BLT cream that is applied half hour before treatment is commenced.

Our professional advice is to skip the gym for the day after treatment and to avoid manipulating the area for the rest of the day.
