General Questions

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

This is a difficult question to answer, as the law in Australia forbids the use of any product or prescription drug named on public websites. Anti-wrinkle injections are a purified natural product / toxin that is placed into or just beneath the skin with tiny injections. It acts to temporarily block the message getting from the nerve to the muscles, so the muscles do not work as hard. This stops them from constantly creasing the skin, allowing lines and wrinkles to improve.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most common cosmetic medical treatment performed today because they are quick, relatively safe, and very effective. It is important that your injector is very experienced in anti-wrinkle injections so that you get the best results with the lowest dose.

How much do anti-wrinkle injections cost?

Probably not as much as you may think. The price obviously varies depending on the areas treated and the dose which needs to be used, which can differ from patient to patient. Most of our patients spend about $200 to $500 every 3 to 6 months. This works out at about $20 to $50 dollars a week. Not too much for a treatment that is proven to make a visible difference to the signs of ageing.

Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?

Very little in most cases. We use tiny needles, and most of the injection points are only 0.01 to 0.05ml, pricked just beneath the skin’s surface. Very often, some of the injections are not felt at all. Some can cause a small prick sensation. I always say anti-wrinkle injections wouldn’t be the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world today if they were painful.

What areas can I treat with anti-wrinkle Injections?

The main areas treated are:
  • Frown lines – the “angry lines”, “number 11” or “cranky lines” between the eyebrows
  • Forehead lines – the horizontal lines across the forehead
  • Crow’s feet – the smile lines radiating out from the eyes
  • Brows – clever placement can often give a nice temporary brow lift effect
Anti-wrinkle treatments can also address:
  • Bunny lines – on the sides of the nose
  • Headache and migraines
  • Chin relaxation
  • Vertical lip lines or “smoker’s lines”
  • The masseter muscle – to help prevent teeth grinding, jaw clenching, TMJ (jaw joint) pain, & also to slim & feminise the jawline.
  • Gummy smiles – anti-wrinkle injections can stop the top lip lifting too high and showing the gums when you smile
  • “Lip flip” – to give a subtly increased lip size
  • The lifting of the corner of the mouth to treat marionette lines
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Excessive sweating in the armpits or other areas
