Frown Lines form over time. Repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles create frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead, eyes and other facial areas.
The areas typically treated for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile).
Anti-wrinkle injections are a form of a purified protein.
Anti-wrinkle injections have important clinical uses as an adjunct in facial pain and bruxism cases for patients with chronic TMJ and orofacial pain. They are also used to complement aesthetic dentistry as a minimally invasive alternative to surgery.
There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth.
Approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above these motor muscles becomes nice and smooth. The effects of Botox lasts approximately three to six months depending on various factors including the amount of botulinum toxin A injected, metabolic activity of the patient and lifestyle choices, which may cause the Botox treatment not to last as long. When the patient sees the wrinkles reappear, the patient needs retreatment.
If you are looking for a non-surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression.
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each Dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two.
Firstly, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers approved by the TGA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling which are usually very minimal and resolve quickly.
Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. Approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above these motor muscles becomes nice and smooth. The effects of dermal filler lasts approximately six to nine months depending on various factors including the amount of Dermal filler injected, metabolic activity of the patient and lifestyle choices, which may cause the treatment not to last as long. When the patient sees the lines/wrinkles reappear, the patient needs retreatment.
Enhance your best asset
Teeth whitening can be one of the simplest and most effective ways to enhance the appearance of your smile. At both our Thornlands and Labrador practices our dental professionals offer effective and results-driven whitening treatments to give our patients the results they deserve.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening Gold Coast
Get a brighter and whiter smile with Opalescence Whitening treatments! The higher concentrate materials in the Opalescence products penetrate the enamel of your teeth to reach discoloured molecules on the inside of your teeth, not just the stains on the outside.
Once the whitening agent has penetrated the enamel, the oxygen molecules in it react with the discoloured molecules in your teeth. The oxygen molecules then spread, whitening your entire smile.
Better still, the Opalescence products contain fluoride which, when compared with other agents on the market, greatly reduces the short-term sensitivity often associated with whitening treatments.
Why choose Opalescence?
Opalescence is a safe way to whiten teeth, with little to no complications or damages to your teeth. Here at TFI our staff are professionally trained and ensure you are safe throughout your whitening treatment.

What causes stains?
There are a number of factors which can lead to teeth discolouration, in the case of superficial or deep stains and blemishes. While there are a number of lifestyle factors that can affect the shade of your teeth, often brightly coloured food and beverages are the culprit of common discolouration. These include:
- Soft drinks
- Red wine
- Tea and coffee
- Acidic foods such as lemon
- Sauces, most predominantly soy sauce
In addition to these, any foods, lollies or drinks that have high sugar content are likely to be damaging your teeth and can affect their colour. Another significant factor that can cause teeth discolouration is smoking. Smoking has the potential to be extremely damaging not only to your overall health, but also to your dental health and the colour of your teeth. Not implementing a regular dental hygiene routine can also lead to teeth discolouration.

During your initial consultation our dental professionals will assess the individual degree of discolouration of your teeth and suggest a whitening treatment that is suited to address these concerns.
