Anti Wrinkle Injections Melbourne VIC
Our years of experience mean we can place anti-wrinkle injections precisely for effective natural looking results
Wrinkles are folds or creases on the skin that can make you appear older. As we age we get more and more of these wrinkles as the supportive components of our skin (elastin, collagen etc.) degenerate over time. Slowly the skin will become thinner, drier and less elastic, causing it to lose its lustre and become sagged and lined. Anti-wrinkle injections have been developed to relax the muscles, which stops wrinkles from developing or worsening around the eyes, on the forehead, or in betweeen the eyebrows.
Anti-wrinkle injections consist of a special compound that smooths frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and neck bands, as well as potentially prevents the formation of new wrinkles. Many people want to reduce their wrinkles as they believe frown lines and crow’s feet wrinkles make them look tired, angry or irritated even when they are not experiencing those emotions. Anti-wrinkle injections can give you a more relaxed appearance so that your resting face is calm and not misconstrued.
Neck bands can also be treated to give you a smoother décolletage and neck area.

The anti-wrinkle injection procedure
- The area to be treated is cleaned thoroughly
- Appropriate numbing agents can be applied to reduce discomfort, although most clients do not need this
- A fine needle injects the anti-wrinkle agent directly into the muscle
- The muscle function will be inhibited to reduce creasing of the skin which causes wrinkles
- The final results will relax your wrinkles and smooth the appearance of your face
The procedure may take as little as ten minutes and you’ll be able to return to your daily activities straight away. It is also a relatively comfortable procedure though some mild stinging can be expected with the injection.
Possible adverse effects of anti-wrinkle injections
Redness and bruising can occur after your anti-wrinkle injection procedure, which can be covered with make-up and will resolve in a day or two. In rare cases, other complications may arise but we make every effort to minimise all risk and produce a successful and natural result for each of our clients.
To reduce bruising after anti-wrinkle injections:
- We recommend patients avoid anti-inflammatory medicines (aspirin etc.) two weeks before treatment
- Don’t rub the area where the injection was placed
- Avoid lying down after your treatment as the injected compound can spread away from the intended area
Anti-wrinkle injection results
The longevity of anti-wrinkle injections is usually from three to four months depending on each client and the area treated. For optimum longevity, top up treatments are required. Our doctors and nurses are passionate about delivering natural results to our patients, which is why we aim to make subtle enhancements rather than an over the top approach.
What anti-wrinkle injection agent do you use?
We offer both types of anti-wrinkle injection products, depending upon patient preference and which is most suited to their anatomy.
