Muscle Relaxant injections
Botulinum Toxin Injections (Botox®)
Botox® is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacteria clostridium Botulinum. Large amounts of toxin blocks the nerve impulses to multiple muscles causing a form of paralysis called Botulism.
By using extremely small doses of Botox® injected directly into a specific muscle, only the action of that muscle will be relaxed and paralyzed.
Botox® can easily be used to effect a reduction in frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow's feet. Botox® can also elevate the eyebrow area effecting a non-surgical brow lift.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive procedure with little or no recovery time, which costs less then surgery and has minimal risks. Dermal fillers have become a very trendy way to address the aging process.
Dermal fillers can be injected into areas with fine lines and wrinkles. Most of the problem areas include the area around the eyes, brow, bridge of the nose, mouth, jaw line and cheeks. Other areas that can be enhanced by dermal fillers include the lips, which can look fuller and younger after an injection. Scarring from injury to the face or acne can also be corrected with dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid which is present naturally in our body. Hyaluronic acid holds water, hydrating and plumping the skin. As we get older our natural production of hyaluronic acid diminishes and this causes wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of contour.
There are different types of fillers available in the market. At Orchid Dental Centre, we only use biodegradable fillers. They are the safest as their effects are reversible.
