Ageing is a process that eventually affects all of us. The appearance of our face typically changes with age. Loss of muscle tone and thinning skin gives the face a flabby or drooping appearance. Our skin also dries out and loses the underlying layer of fat so that our face no longer has a plump, smooth surface. To some extent wrinkles cannot be avoided.
Your face may be giving away your age, or even making you look older than you really are. Here at Aesthetika Dental Studio we've got the best non–surgical treatments to tackle signs of aging.

Expression wrinkles - wrinkle reduction technique
Lines and wrinkles are caused when overactive muscles contract, thus reducing the collagen in the skin and create tiny creases. The loose skin between these muscles is what we all know as wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin, most commonly known as Botox is a highly purified toxin that can temporarily erase or reduce these wrinkles (forehead lines, frown lines, crow's feet).
Botox works by weakening those injected muscles, therefore minimizing the creases between them and reducing the wrinkles. The technique we use is called 'Baby Botox' with which we can achieve wrinkle reduction without eliminating expression lines giving a fresher, younger but still natural appearance.
Visible results are usually seen within 3-5 days, however it can take up to 2 weeks to see full results.
Loss of volume wrinkles - wrinkle filler technique
Skin is held tight and smooth by three critical components: collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin which combine to create a firm, spongy meshwork under the skin surface. This elastic structure keeps the skin surface smooth and firm.
With age, this meshwork slowly loses its integrity. With weakness in the underlying support structure, the skin's surface loses its perfect baby skin smoothness.
The wrinkle reduction in this case is achieved with fillers and the component in those fillers is the Hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in our skin!
Injecting cosmetic fillers helps fill the thinned out meshwork. The fillers plump up the tissue underneath the skin, shrinking wrinkles. The skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger looking.
These wrinkle fillers are simply used as 'volumizers' plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, filling out thin lips or reshaping uneven lips.

Botulinum Toxin a has been safely used for over 30 years as a treatment for spasmus in eye muscles in much greater amounts than those for cosmetic work?
Frequently Asked Questions
Are Botox wrinkle injections painful?
Botox itself is not painful. Pain is associated with the needlestick, however the needles we use are the finest on the market so the discomfort is minimal. Sometimes the injected areas can feel a bit 'heavy' for a few hours, in which case we advise to take some paracetamol to releave the pressure.
Is Botox treatment safe?
The cosmetic use of Botulinum Toxin Type-A to correct lines and wrinkles around the upper face by trained practitioners is widely accepted by doctors and drug approval bodies as safe, since loss of muscle movement in these areas only temporarily interferes with aesthetic appearance only.
Which areas can be treated?
- forehead creases (worry lines)
- eyebrow lift
- frown lines (Glabellar lines)
- crow's feet
- nose lines (bunny lines)
- marionette lines
- lip lines
- smokers lines
- depressed lip corners
- chin lines
- neck lines
How long does the result last?
The wrinkle reduction treatments that we offer here at Aesthetika Dental Studio are not permanent. Botox usually lasts from 3-6 months and dermal fillers 8-12 months depending on the individual.
Will I have a frozen look without expression?
It all depends on where and how much Botox is injected. There are some people who want their foreheads 'frozen'. Your desired Botox effects can be discussed during your initial consultation. The areas that you wish to improve and the dosage can be individualized to your wishes. The methods we use have as a goal wrinkle-free not expression-free look, aiming for a fresh and natural outcome.
