Cosmetic Dentist Reviews

"I recently visited Thompson Dental for some "facial injectables" with Michael. He made me feel very relaxed about the procedure which was fairly painless and over quickly. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and would highly recommend!"

Therapeutic Anti Wrinkle Injections

Injectable muscle relaxants are nerve blocking treatments commonly referred to as anti wrinkle injections. These nerve blocking treatments are successfully used for the therapeutic relief of muscular related disorders such as bruxism (teeth grinding), migraines and cosmetic facial rejuvenation.

Teeth Grinding Treatment

Muscular disorders such as the repetitive grinding and clenching of teeth, also known as Bruxism, can cause severe dental damage over time. There is no cure for bruxism but injtectable muscle relaxants are one of the most effective teeth grinding treatments that can save your smile. The injtectable “toxins” block neuromuscular signals to nerves, these are the signals that cause muscles to contract. When tiny quantities are injected into targeted muscles it blocks these signals, causing the muscles to relax. These treatments also provide therapeutic relief for other muscular-related disorders such as migraines, fine lines and wrinkles.

Cosmetic Anti Wrinkle Treatments

Reduce Signs of Aging

Injectable nerve blockers are effective for inhibiting repetitive facial expressions that lead to the development of wrinkles over time. Skin rejuvenation is achieved by inhibiting muscle contractions in localized areas of the face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Older Skin Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation focusses on undoing some of the effects ageing has had on our skin. The idea is to compensate for the loss of facial volume, support elastin function and increase collagen production. Overall skin rejuvenation treatments at our practice include a combination of injectable muscle relaxants and dermal fillers.


Younger Skin Prejuvenation

Prejuvenation is a preventative approach to reducing visible signs of aging. Prejuvenation treatments may keep the skin smooth as you age by preventing these grooves from being formed in the first place. Muscle relaxants injected into targeted muscles can block nerve signals that trigger the muscles to contract, preventing wrinkles from developing over time.

How Long Do Injectable Nerve Blockers Take To Work?

The nerve blockers usually begin working five to ten days after treatment.


A recent study found that using anti-wrinkle therapy can help you appear to others as looking younger and healthier. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three to four months. To maintain the effect, you’ll need regular follow-up injections.


According to a randomised, double-blind study, the formulation used at our practice was found to work faster and last longer than similar anti-wrinkle treatments. The study showed that desirable effects were maintained for up to 4 months.


We use a scientifically formulated solution that contains no accessory proteins – this means that the body is less likely to develop antibodies to the product and become resistant over time, which has been the case with other anti-wrinkle treatments.
