Anti-wrinkle injections use a naturally occurring toxin, to reduce lines and wrinkles. This is a protein that causes the muscles in your face to relax, giving you a more youthful appearance.
It is the most popular, targeted non-surgical cosmetic treatment for the reduction of wrinkles in Australia.

What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?
Frown Lines: vertical lines between the eyebrows, usual in people who frown a lot or have been overexposed to the sun.
Forehead wrinkles: horizontal lines across the forehead, usual as we age and more prominent when we raise our eyebrows.
Crows Feet: series of lines in the outer corner of the eyes, usual as we age and more prominent when we laugh or smile.
Smokers Lines: lines above the top lip, usually prominent in (ex) smokers but also occur in non smokers.
Bunny Lines: lines at the top of the nose, usual in people who squint or frown often.
Brow Lift: drooping eyebrows caused through ageing can be lifted by approximately 3 millimetres.
What happens during the treatment?
Treatment involves a Doctor safely making a number of small injections into the correct muscles in the face in order to reduce wrinkles.
Does it hurt?
The Doctor uses the smallest hypodermic injections to ensure procedures are largely pain free. Minimal discomfort may be experienced following the procedure, but this usually passes quickly.
Is botulinum toxin safe?
Botulinum has been used in the medical field for over 40 years, and if administered by a qualified medical professional carries minimal risk. It is only administered into the muscle and is not absorbed elsewhere into the body.
What happens after my treatment ?
You can resume normal activity, although we suggest avoiding strenuous physical activity/ gym/ other procedures for approx. 24 hours.
How long will it last ?
You will notice a reduction in your wrinkles after 4-10 days. Treatment will last for approximately 4 months.
Are there possible side effects?
Most clients have no side effects to treatment, although you may experience mild headaches, or notice slight bruising to some of the areas that have been treated.
