  1. A consultation on how the injectables can benefit your smile. Pre-operative photos are recorded. 
  2. Small injections are made within the skin. If using fillers options to have topical or local anesthetic is available.
  3. The process will only take a couple of minutes. Once done, enjoy a more youthful and defined look. 
  4. The full effect of muscle relaxants takes two weeks to kick in and lasts about 3 months. Fillers can intially swell after your injections and fully settle in 1-2 weeks later. Using cannulas for fillers, this post op swelling and any risks are kept to a minimum.


Muscle relaxants are used to soften lines and wrinkles that come with age or sun-damage, to drop your lip or hide a gummy smile. They can even be used to tone down the bulky muscles on the sides of your jaw – the ones that make us grind at night.
They work by reducing the targeted muscles’ ability to contract, ‘relaxing’ the muscles into inaction. This in turn allows lines in the area caused by the repeated scrunching of the skin to soften. Over time, the body is allowed to naturally repair these defects, reducing lines and preventing future wrinkles, if continually used. For these, we use a newer alternative muscle relaxant that has the benefit of fewer preservatives, which is preferable when using injectables long term.
Fillers are used to replace the lost, or lack of, volume in an area. From thin lips to poorly defined cheekbones, fillers plump up any area that may be a little lacking, to create a more supple and youthful appearance.
Our fillers use a highly biocompatible material that is naturally produced within our skin to keep it looking supple and youthful. There are fewer risks with this filler than any other on the market and it feels far more natural to the alternatives.
Whether muscles relaxants or fillers, you can rest assured that these products are not permanent, meaning if this is not for you, it will wear off in time.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMD, is where clicking, grinding, locking or pain is associated with the temporomandibular joint or its surrounding muscles or structures. It can occur due to grinding or clenching, arthritic changes in the joints, trauma, poor tooth alignment, sleep apnoea, or from other sources. TMD can produce pain and discomfort with the joints or chewing muscles, and can lead to tooth wear and cracks.

Muscle relaxant injectables straight into the largest grinding muscles, the masseters, is an option to effectively treat TMD. The injectables will decrease the heavy forces coming from the tight over-worked muscles. You will still be able to chew but it will feel like the lower jaw wants to naturally open up again after biting down. This can help with grinding and clenching both at night and during the day, may help with headaches, and relieve painful symptoms. It starts to take effect at 2 weeks, takes full effect around 4-6 weeks, and lasts between 3-6 months. It can also result in a little facial slimming along the jawline.

Occasionally, secondary grinding muscles near the temples, the temporalis, may over-compensate for the loss of action of the masseters. In this case, these muscles may also require additional injecting.

Treating temporomandibular joint disorder can be complicated. Injectables can work well in most cases, though dosage will be dependant on a person to person basis. It is important to have your case assessed by a professional trained in dealing with TMD as injectables are not always the solution. At Smile Design Dental, your dentist will complete a thorough exam and help you find the right option to treat your TMD.


It doesn’t take five years to learn how to do a filling. Throughout dental school the anatomy is exhaustively studied as all the surrounding structures can have large impacts on dental health. The location of all the muscles are identified, along with their actions, leading to facial movement and mastication. The quality of bone changes where it is in the face, requiring different approaches for anaesthetics or treatment of fractures. Blood vessels and nerves are mapped out to ensure low risks of trauma and optimisation of comfort. Dentists are not just experts of the mouth, but the whole face.

This means we are well aware of the effects our injections are producing, are able to provide harm minimisation techniques individualised to each patient, and best of all, provide superior anaesthesia when it is desired.

We use topical anaesthetics for all injection sites, however in places such as the lips, the creams don’t always cut it. That’s where we provide you with the option of local anaesthetics to completely numb up the area. Some people manage well with just the creams, but at least here you have the option for anaesthesia that is more profound.

We are one of the few dentists in Brisbane to offer injectables to the face and neck area. We are passionate about helping our clients feel confident in their looks and only use the highest quality products.

Frequently Asked Questions

The longevity of the results can vary depending on individual factors including the type of injectable used, the area treated, and your body’s response to the injectables. Generally, muscle relaxants can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, while fillers tend to last between 6 to 18 months. It’s always best to discuss this with Dr. Danielle Bolger to have a personalised estimate.
Like with any medical procedure, there can be side effects. Common ones include bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site. These effects are generally temporary and resolve within a few days. We use products with fewer preservatives and highly biocompatible materials to minimise any adverse reactions. However, it is always recommended to discuss any concerns or medical history with your dentist to foresee potential side effects and mitigate them effectively.
Yes, many patients choose to combine muscle relaxants and fillers in a single session to achieve a more harmonious and youthful result. This combination allows for a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. Dr. Danielle Bolger can create a customised treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.
During your consultation at Smile Design Dental, Dr. Danielle Bolger will assess your facial features, skin condition, and discuss your aesthetic goals to recommend the treatment that is best suited for you. The right treatment for you would depend on a variety of factors including the area to be treated, the volume loss experienced, and your desired outcomes.
Generally, injectable treatments have minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to their normal activities quickly. Some patients might experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising, which typically subsides within a few days. Dr. Danielle Bolger will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process.
After receiving a muscle relaxant treatment, the targeted muscles become relaxed, reducing their ability to contract and thereby reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This not only offers immediate improvement but also allows the skin time to repair itself naturally. The constant relaxed state prevents the deepening of existing lines and the formation of new ones, promoting a smoother, more youthful complexion over time.
