Dr MJ: “I’m no miracle worker, it is surprisingly simple really. To get results you just have to take time to understanding what the patient wants, have a good grasp of facial anatomy and be able to draw on a lot of experience.”
MJ loves helping her patients look nice. It really is that simple.
Dr MJ: “I have all sorts of patients in their 30’s to 80’s! Everyone is different and it’s important to really figure out what a person wants from treatment so we can design a plan together and achieve remarkable results. You can only achieve perfection for an individual if you fully understand what they want and how they would like to feel.”
Dr MJ is a cosmetic dentist. This puts her in a uniquely well-qualified position when it comes to facial anatomy and injection technique, the two most important factors for creating beautiful results.
She holds an MSc in Aesthetic Medicine and a Biomedical Sciences Degree, teaches Injection techniques and works on the faculty at Sinclair Pharmaceuticals as a Key Opinion Leader, Trainer and Advisor. She is also a thought leader in safety in the industry and works closely with regulator, Save Face to make sure unscrupulous practitioners do no harm to patients. Finally she is an CUBS Expert Witness frequently being instructed in litigation to advise the court on proper record-keeping and injection best practices. All these qualifications and authorities are great but MJ claims that the secret to getting great Botox treatment has little to do with her qualifications.
Dr MJ: “Being highly qualified is the bare minimum. People who practice on such an important area as the face should have a deep understanding of facial anatomy. Each face is uniquely complex. As is each individual person. It’s not enough to inject well or use the best products. You need to understand the complicated dynamic of a persons features to be the best you can be and make a real impact on people’s lives.”
There’s no such thing as a ‘famous’ dentist. No matter what you might hear people say. That said, Dr MJ has been featured widely in the press mainly for her work in complication management. She has an active practice treating complications of filler and dissolving filler with hylase. Visit Dr MJ’s press page here:
Here at Smileworks we use Allergan Botox® to ease wrinkles and create a refreshed, alert and youthful look for our patients. Botox® is a product that is dependable, effective and reliable in the hands of an expert injector. Not everybody is suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment and you must come along for a consultation where we will discuss possible outcomes and how this wonderful treatment can make you look and feel years younger in just a few days.
Botox® is the brand name for Botulinum Type-A, a naturally occurring toxin that is safely injected into the muscles to cause them to relax. This softens wrinkles and deep lines leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. If you have very deep wrinkles then you might be also interested in dermal fillers. Our anti-wrinkle treatments are also popular amongst patients who also come for lip fillers.
Botox works by targeting the root causes of wrinkles in the skin. In everyday life we make facial expressions and in young individuals the skin has elasticity and contains lots of collagen so wrinkles usually don’t form. As we get a little older and collagen begins to deplete, the skin loses its elasticity and hydration. This means you start to notice lines and wrinkles forming first when you make certain facial expressions.
Then over time these wrinkles and lines become a permanent feature of the face and give the appearance of an aged complexion. Targeted Botulinum treatments can relax some of the muscles of facial expression and cause these lines to soften and disappear over time. It’s sometimes difficult to understand how the process works but it is tried and tested on literally millions of patients the world over who choose to come back time and time again for the wonderful age-reversing properties of Botox®
Patients who are interested in Botox typically also benefit from treatments to improve skin quality. Take a look at our Aerolase treatments for more information on how to achieve a complete skin glow-up this year!
Here’s the treatment results you can expect from your anti-wrinkle treatments from Allergan, the makers of Botox®. We have clinical images that you can see although botox before and after images just look like someone frowning and then not frowning so are pretty unhelpful! But trust us, 11 million people can’t be wrong! To see dozens of testimonials from our patients check below on this page.
Discover the best kept secrets that the pro’s use to help Botox last longer
Like with any medical procedure, treatment with botulinum toxins carry certain risks of adverse events and complications. The most common are tiny bruises from the injections and swelling in the treated area. Following your treatment you will have tiny lumps where the Botulinum and saline is present in the tissue. These will resolve in 10-30 minutes. You may get small blue bruises that will resolve after a few days. Then there are more rare complications that are typically caused by poor injection technique or cross-infection protocols not being followed. Following treatment with Dr MJ you will be given detailed aftercare instructions on a card to follow. Aftercre for Botox is very simple. Don’t mess with it, don’t worry about small bruises and avoid smoking, hard exercise for 24 hours after treatment. No facial treatments or saunas or extremes of heat and cold for two weeks. Some patients come to Smileworks having been to salons and ‘mobile’ Botox® providers with swelling, bruises and uneven results. A ‘frozen face’ is an adverse reaction to Botulinum toxin and poorly trained practitioners will cause this in their patients. Patients also come in with droopy eyes having been treated by amateur injectors at other practices. Unfortunately a droopy lid or ‘ptosis’ is not immediately reversible and patients will be stuck with it for 6-9 months. This type of complication does not happen at Smileworks because we are the best at what we do and carefully treat our patients. However, if you have a Ptosis, there are ways we can alleviate the problem if you come in for a consultation.
