Why choose dove dental spa?
Botulinum toxin type A works by relaxing muscles that cause the expression lines and wrinkles on our face and neck. These lines and wrinkles can often make us look older and more tired than we actually feel. At Dove Dental & Wellbeing Spa we relax these muscles using Botulinum toxin type A in an injection to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, allowing us to look as youthful as we feel.
We target certain areas to soften the effect of ageing and enhance your natural beauty. These include: forehead, frown lines (glabellar), crow’s feet (smile lines), nose wrinkles, gummy smiles, under eye wrinkles, wrinkles around the mouth, dimpled chins and jawlines (square jaws).
Anti-wrinkle injections in the face typically last around 3 months depending on the area treated, it can last longer with regular treatments over time. The procedures take between 15-30 minutes and a consultation and thorough medical history is required prior to treatment. After treatment it is normal to get some bruising, redness and swelling, and the area may also feel heavy for up to 1 week.
Botulinum toxin can also be used to prevent excess sweating in your underarms (axilla hyperhydrosis) and to reduce the appearance of a square jaw caused by over action of the masseter muscles/bruxism (masseteric hypertrophy).

ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENT FAQs
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Botulinum toxin type A is a prescription medicine used to relax lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. They work to relax the muscle movements that cause the overlying skin to fold or crease which overtime cause the wrinkle.
What is it used for?
– To smooth fine lines and wrinkles of the upper face including the forehead, glabella (often referred to as the 11 lines between your eyebrows), crows feet, eyebrow lift, under eye wrinkles and bunny lines on the nose.
– Gummy smile where the muscles that lift the lip are hyperactive causing you to show excess gum when you smile.
– Chin pebbling
– Masseteric hypertrophy from teeth grinding or clenching
– Lines on the neck
– Axilla hyperhidrosis (excess underarm sweating)
How long does it take to work?
It takes up to 2 weeks for full results but you may start to notice some difference within 5 days.
How long will it last?
Every person is different, anti-wrinkle injections in the upper face can last up to 3 months. Masseteric hypertrophy and axilla hyperhidrosis results can last up to 6 months.
Will I be frozen?
Your consultation will discuss the look you want to achieve. We prefer a more natural look here that keeps your eyebrows moving so you don’t look ‘done’!
What happens during your appointment?
After your consultation the treatment procedure involves going over your medical history and consent process again just to double check for any changes and to go over any questions. It is possible to have treatment in the same appointment as your consultation if you’d like.
Any make up on the area to be treated is removed. The skin is cleaned with alcohol and markings are made relating to injection points. The injections are delivered via very small needles.
How long does my appointment take?
Depending on the area to be treated the procedure will last anywhere between 15-30 minutes. If you are having treatment for axilla hyperhidrosis you will be with us for roughly 45 minutes as you will have a sweat test prior to cleaning the skin.
Will it hurt?
Botulinum toxin injections are delivered without the need for anaesthetic as the needles are the smallest on the market. You may feel a very slight scratch on injection, if you have any.
