Anti-wrinkle injectables are a muscle relaxant service that reduces fine lines and wrinkles. This is done by temporarily deactivating the underlying muscles in the skin, to ensure you maintain your youthful glow.

asked questions

Anti-Wrinkle – What is it?
The formal name for anti-wrinkle is botulinum toxin. This is a prescription muscle relaxant and is used for the treatment of wrinkles via injection. Once injected into a muscle, it will reduce excessive contractions of that particular muscle – thus, preventing fine lines from becoming deep-set into the skin and maintaining your youthful glow.
Where is anti-wrinkle commonly used?
Anti-wrinkle is commonly used in areas such as the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows) and crows feet (fan lines from the corner of the eyes).

It can also be used in the masseter muscle to temporarily treat bruxism, cosmetically slim the jawline, lift the eyebrows and minimise the presence of excessive gum tissue when smiling.

How long before it takes effect?
Post-treatment, the anti-wrinkle will usually start to take effect between 2-4 days and it reaches full effect by 14 days.
How long does it last?
This depends on the site of treatment. The average time before you will need to return for a top up is approximately 3-5 months, except in the masseter/jaw muscle w- which lasts 6-9 months.
Is there anything I need to do post-treatment?
Please refer to our aftercare instructions page for what to expect and do’s/don’ts post treatment. We love to follow up with our patients, so part of our service will be inviting you to come in 14 days post-treatment to check in.
What products are used?
We use market leading anti-wrinkle products which have been approved for safe use in Australia by the therapeutic goods administration (TGA). Listing names is not permitted by the TGA, but they come from major, reputable American and European pharmaceutical companies.
What happens if/when I decide to not continue with anti-wrinkle?
With muscle movement being stronger, you’ll find that the lines you’ve been preventing start to slowly crease again at the same rate your skin would normally age.
Even if you’ve decided not to continue with treatments and the benefits of your prior anti-wrinkle treatment diminish, you would still have gained all the wrinkle-free years from your prior treatments.
Can numbing cream be used?
We offer one of the strongest local numbing agents on the market at our clinic and always use this for all lip treatments. For all other areas, it may certainly be requested.
Can I have a treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Unfortunately we cannot provide you with any cosmetic services if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
