Facial Injectables

Dento-facial health and rejuvenation

Rediscover Youthful Skin with Our Injectable Treatments

Thinking about getting cosmetic treatment? Whether it’s anti-wrinkle treatment or cosmetic injectables, we can help you make the best decision to suit your needs.


Facial injectables, (dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections), are some of the treatments commonly used to reduce visible signs of aging and restore youthfulness. They remain the most common non-surgical anti-ageing treatment globally. More recently they have been increasingly used in dentistry due to their therapeutic uses in the treatment of some oral health conditions.


As dental professionals, we’ve studied facial anatomy in-depth and we’re best positioned to deliver a natural look. Our unparalleled levels of accuracy and refined technique allow us to target the areas you need us to focus on most while keeping you safe in a sterile environment.

Our cosmetic dental professional maintains certified training in facial aesthetics from the Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics (AADFA). We can emphasize your natural beauty with care that is inclusive to your entire appearance and well-being.



How does botulinum toxin work?

Neuromodulators such as Dysport, are wrinkle relaxing injections of botulinum toxin type A. They work by blocking the signal between the nerves and the muscle, preventing the muscle movements that make these wrinkles develop. Having botulinum toxin treatment benefits your skin in two ways. First, it makes your wrinkles look less obvious. Second, reduced action from these muscles slows down the wrinkles’ progression.

Facial expressions often cause lines known as dynamic wrinkles to develop around the eyes, forehead and mouth, regardless of whether you’re smiling or frowning. Neuromodulators are designed to relax the muscles responsible for repetitive facial movements, effectively smoothing expression lines.

There are both therapeutic and cosmetic indications for the use of facial injectables, such as Botulinum Toxin type A

Anti – Wrinkle Treatments Areas


In most cases, the reason for a “gummy” smile may be caused by overactive upper lip muscles. Muscle-relaxing injectables like Dysport® can treat a gummy smile by temporarily relaxing the levator labii superioris—the muscle that causes the lip to pull up when smiling, ultimately minimizing visibility of the gumline.


Bruxism is an issue experienced by many. Often patients grind and clench their teeth while asleep, only to wake up with sore jaws or toothache. Teeth clenching can cause pain, migraines, earaches, as well as accelerated wear and tear of the teeth. Over time, bruxism can also lead to chipped teeth, TMJ disorder, increased tooth sensitivity, and even tooth loss. Dysport®  injections have proven to be an effective treatment to relax the masseter and temporalis muscles to reduce clenching and grinding.

Improved appearance

Enhance your appearance with injectable treatments, effectively treating wrinkles and limiting signs of aging.

Improved confidence

Treatments can help boost your self-esteem by restoring youthfulness and providing great results.

Effective Treatments

Typically facial injectable treatments can last up to 4 months, and you can have around 3 to 4 treatments each year.

Cosmetic injectables are conveniently administered in-office, here at our Taupo practice. Based on a facial analysis and a discussion of your concerns, we will work with you to decide the best approach to rejuvenate your dento-facial health. The product will then be delivered conservatively to the planned treatment sites via an ultra-fine needle. Most treatment sessions are completed in as little as 15 to 30 minutes. Mild swelling is possible immediately after injections, but there is generally zero downtime required following treatment.
