Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Everyone’s heard of anti-wrinkle injections and most of us over the age of 35 or 40 have made use of their facial rejuvenation effects. Whether known by their formal brand name or as a muscle-relaxing wrinkle reducer, cosmetic injections are powerful tools used by many men and women to keep their faces looking fresh, younger and rested. They can reduce or remove unwanted lines and wrinkles (temporarily), or even treat hyperhydrosis or frequent headaches due to facial tension. Most of all, they can help you look your best, for as long as possible – with minimal treatment time and minimal risks. They are also more affordable than facial surgery, although are often used in conjunction with a facelift or other rejuvenating facial surgery procedure.
Anti-Wrinkle, muscle-relaxing injections are often also combined with Dermal Fillers – to achieve restoration of lost facial volume and rejuvenate the entire facial appearance.
Combining Dermal Fillers with Anti-Wrinkle Injections for Full Facial Rejuvenation Benefits (We also perform Kybella Injections to reduce the appearance of a double chin).
Shown below is a cheek augmentation injecting procedure performed on a patient who wanted more pronounced yet natural-looking cheek augmentation using dermal filler injections.
Anti-Wrinkle treatments help to reduce your unwanted wrinkles including:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Horizontal forehead lines and eyebrow lifting
- Lines above the lip and gummy smile
- Dimples on chin
- Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
Sometimes the wrinkles relate to a loss of skeletal volume – as bones deteriorate and atrophy over time and with ageing. Volume can be replaced with Dermal Filler injections and the combined effect of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can be very rejuvenating and long lasting.
The key to getting a natural looking result with Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Injections is to choose a strategic, highly experienced cosmetic Injector such as our Top Injecting Team in Melbourne and Berwick: Dr Prav, Sandra and Kay.
We offer a many brands of popular anti-ageing treatments, each individual treatment is tailored to your needs.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a procedure to treat lines and wrinkles in the skin. A Purified natural protein is injected in to the area to relax wrinkle causing muscles, creating a refreshed look. The active ingredient for the muscle relaxant injection solutions are derived from bacteria in sterile laboratory conditions.
Anti-wrinkle injection is a prescription-only medicine so the treatment is performed by a qualified medical professional.
How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections work on relaxing the dynamic muscles that are responsible for wrinkle formation. Small amounts are injected in to the skin and this results in relaxation of the muscle movement.
When will I see results from cosmetic injections for wrinkles – and how long does it last?
Generally, people start to see the results within 2-3 days of their treatment, however it can take up to seven to ten days to see the final results.
The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually last up to up to 3 to 4 months and the longevity of the effect INCREASES with continued treatments. If you have regular treatments, the effects may last longer.
How do I maintain my anti-wrinkle injection results?
Regular anti-wrinkle injections may help improve the longevity of the treatment’s effects. In addition, regular treatment may help reduce static wrinkles (these are wrinkles that are present even when your face is at rest). Our Specialist Aesthetic Doctor or Nurse Injector can discuss a treatment plan for regular anti-wrinkle injections for you.
What are possible side effects of anti-wrinkle injections, double chin submental fat reduction injections or dermal filler injections?
In the treatment of upper facial lines, the doses that are used are small. In most cases, any side effects are temporary, and are limited to where the treatment was injected. In the treatment of the double chin using Kybella injections, your Injecting Clinician will give you detailed information about the potential side effects, risks or contraindications.
Possible side effects of cosmetic injections including Muscle-Relaxing Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers or Kybella Injections to reduce a DoubleChin can include:
- Discomfort in the treated areas
- Swelling or redness at injection site
- Local muscle weakness including drooping of the eyelid or eyebrows

- Nausea and flu-like symptoms

Can Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatments be combined with other products and procedures?
