Wrinkle Reducing Injections, Cosmetic Injections and Anti-wrinkle Treatments in Adelaide

As we age, changes occur at different rates to our upper, mid and lower face. In the upper face, “dynamic” lines appear in the forehead and around the eyes when we smile or frown. These lines appear because various muscles contract to form different facial expressions. Over time, these expression lines begin to linger a little longer or become a little deeper, even when your face is at rest (these are then called static lines). Wrinkle reducing injections relax these wrinkle causing muscles to help refresh your facial appearance.

What is used?

Anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections consist of a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a refreshed look. It is a prescription only medicine and so treatments are only available by qualified medical professionals.

How does it work and what does it do?

Small injections with a very fine needle are used to insert the product into specific facial muscles that cause the dynamic lines when you smile or frown. It can also be used in crow’s feet (beside the eyes), forehead lines and glabella lines (between the eyes). The product relaxes the muscle so it doesn’t work as effectively, or indeed not at all, so the lines dramatically reduce or disappear.

What is the difference between anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections and dermal fillers?

Wrinkle reducing cosmetic injections relax wrinkle-causing facial muscles, which is very different from dermal fillers. Fillers are injected below the skin to fill in lines and replace or enhance facial volume in areas such as cheeks or lips.

How long does a treatment take?

The treatments are quick and simple, non-surgical procedures, usually taking anywhere between 15-20 mins. No anaesthetic is required. Typically any pain is minimal and brief. You can resume normal activities immediately, following some simple aftercare instructions we give you.

When will I see results?

Generally people will start to see results after 1-2 days of their treatment and it can take from 10-14 days until the full results to become visible.

How long will it last?

The effect of the treatments usually last between 3-4 months. If you have regular treatments the effects may last longer.

Are there any side effects?

In the majority of cases and side effects are temporary and limited to where the product has been injected. This may include some redness, a small burning or stinging sensation, bruising and swelling at an injection site. In some cases it has been reported that there is local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids or eyebrows, swollen eyelids and skin tightness, tingling sensations, itching or aching forehead.

Can anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections be used with other products?

Many people combine wrinkle reducing cosmetic injections with other cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and other skin treatments and creams that help skin texture, tone and quality.

How much does it cost?
