Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular anti-aging cosmetic treatments in Australia and around the world.
A safe and effective way of softening expression lines that have become deep over time, or as a preventative treatment to stop wrinkles from forming, anti wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles of facial expression, allowing the overlying skin to remain smooth. Results take on average 5-7 days with the final result at 2 weeks.
Regular anti wrinkle injections give a refreshed and brightened appearance. Some benefits of anti wrinkle injections include:
- Minimally invasive
- No downtime
- Quick treatment sessions
- Safe and virtually painless
- Visible results in 1 week or less
- Results for 3 – 6 months

The four major structural components of our face are skin, fat, muscle, and bone. As we age, volume loss in these structures contributes to many of the visible signs of ageing. Dermal fillers may help.
Over time, age-related bone loss in the face can lead to retraction of the jawline, descent of the nose, and loss of high cheekbones. The facial muscles also decrease in volume and elasticity, and deflation and movement of facial fat further accentuates the signs of ageing. Finally, the skin stretches and loses elasticity — compounded by the loss of scaffolding provided by fat, muscle, and bone, this leads to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other familiar signs of ageing.
Dermal fillers, can help smooth lines and replenish lost volume, restoring a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. They can address a number of common concerns including smoothing of deep under-eye circles, lifting of cheekbones, volumization of the lips, smoothing of lip lines and smile lines (the creases that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth), and rejuvenation of the hands.
Dermal fillers can be composed of a variety of substances, some naturally occurring and some synthetic. One of the most common compounds used in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, and it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and volumized. HA fillers, depending on their specific chemical makeup, can last from six months to much longer before being gradually absorbed by the body.

Excessive sweating not necessarily related to heat or exercise, hyperhidrosis can not only disrupt normal daily activities, but can be a cause of social anxiety and embarrassment. Anti-wrinkle injections, most commonly used in cosmetics, are also effective in treating excessive sweating by temporarily stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. The treatment is relatively painless and can provide a successful reduction in sweating for up to 9 months.

Bruxism is the involuntary clenching and grinding of teeth which usually occurs at night. Causes include stress, anxiety and concentration. About half of the population grind or clench their teeth at night from time to time, however a small percentage are regular, forceful tooth grinders. Symptoms include jaw pain, aching teeth and headache. Long term grinders can cause much wear and tear on the enamel of the tooth.
Anti Wrinkle injections are an effective treatment for jaw clenching and teeth grinding. By injecting anti-wrinkle injections into the masseter muscle of the jaw, the muscle is relaxed, relieving tension in the jaw and reducing the ability to clench the teeth too tightly.
