Anti wrinkle injections have been used in cosmetic medicine for two decades to provide a quick lunch time rejuvenation. Most commonly utilised for the treatment of eye wrinkles, forehead wrinkles and frown lines anti ageing injections have found a place in many other treatment areas.
How Do Anti Wrinkle Injections Work?
The anti-ageing properties of cosmetic wrinkle injections work by relaxing muscles which prevents the skin creasing on the surface. It is from repeated expression over time that defects form in deeper layers of skin. When we are young, and we frown or smile, the skin springs back afterwards. With time, loss of the skins structural elements of collagen and elastin means these wrinkles and lines become fixed. If left they can deepen.
Other Enhancements With Cosmetic Wrinkle Injections
There is a broad range of off-label uses for anti wrinkles injections. On the face: Anti-wrinkle injections create a non-surgical eye lift, smooth marionette lines, lessen a gummy smile, soften chin dimples, relax bunny lines on your nose, relax teeth grinding or shape your jaw.
Off the face: Anti-wrinkles injections are used to smooth neck bands, provide a Nefertiti lift and are even used in a wide range of medical treatments.

Sunny Brisbane, we love our city, but for most of us, our skin does not like the sun. The majority of undesirable skin changes as we get less young are from sun exposure.
Anti Wrinkle Injections are often central to a facial rejuvenation plan. However, depending on your concerns and what you are trying to prevent, other treatments may be better, or additive to an excellent outcome.
For example, Anti-Wrinkle injections are suitable for preventing or reversing wrinkles and lines. But for pigmentation or freckle removal, you will need a laser, IPL or peels. For fine lines and wrinkles, you will need some form of facial resurfacing. Our team is trained to advise on the best options for your cosmetic concerns.
When to start wrinkle prevention?
During your 20’s your skin is losing 1% of its collagen per year. Early signs of facial wrinkles, eye wrinkles or crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles begin to appear by your late 20’s to mid-30’s. Their appearance depends on a variety of factors including genes, sun and pollution exposure, stress and smoking. Now is the perfect time to start prevention.
Once the domain of women, it is now common for men to use anti wrinkle injections (and the full range of cosmetic injectables).

Anti Wrinkle Injection Cost
The cost of treatment depends on the number of units you require. And how much you need depends on how active your muscles are and what effect you want. Most people prefer a more natural looking result, rather than a frozen look that was popular in the 80’s.
The price for a single unit varies depending on the type of anti-wrinkle injection is used. There are three different cosmetic injections available in Australia.
This price also varies whether it is our Doctor or Nurse who does the injection for you. We offer an obligation free consultation with both Doctors and Nurse. In this assessment, they will assess your muscle movement and discuss the options.

How Long Do Anti Aging Injections Last?
Anti ageing Injections injections last three to four months on average. Longevity is individual with some people getting up to 6 months (uncommon).
Facial injections tend to last longer in the frown area than the eye wrinkle and forehead area. The reason: the muscles are different. In Brisbane, we squint a lot because our sun is intense. Some suggest this could lessen the duration in the eye area.
What are the side effects of Anti Aging Injections?
Side effects of anti ageing injections are temporary and minor.
- Common side effects include redness and swelling in the area, bruising is uncommon because of the size of the needles used but does occur.
- Headaches occasionally occur, as does numbness or pins and needle sensation in the areas.
