Anti-wrinkle injections (‘wrinkle relaxers’) involve injecting a natural protein into specific muscles of the face. With age, the constant contraction of our facial muscles causes wrinkles to form. The anti-wrinkle injection causes these muscles to relax, giving the skin a smooth and youthful appearance, while also giving the creased skin time to repair.
Meet Dr Monica Hernandez
Registered dentist & facial aesthetics practitioner
Although well-known for her work here at the clinic as a dentist, few know that Dr Monica is also a facial aesthetics practitioner, providing natural-looking cosmetic injections (e.g., dermal fillers, lip fillers and anti-wrinkle injections), dermal therapies and skincare advice.
Having completed extensive training in various parts of the globe, Dr Monica has been immersed in the world of cosmetic injectables for several years. Monica is passionate about aesthetic treatments, as well as skincare, and is keen to treat every patient holistically, assessing the entire face and complexion, rather than performing ‘quick fixes’.
Oxford Street Dental has two dental professionals, Dr Mark Gee and Dr Monica Hernandez, regularly administering anti-wrinkle injections, to help reduce the appearance of:
- frown lines
- crow’s feet
- nose wrinkles
- gummy smiles
- forehead lines
Results are generally visible between 6 and 14 days, and can last for up to 5 months.
All surgical procedures carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
