Who can benefit from anti-wrinkle injections?
Both male and female patients enjoy benefiting from naturally-convincing results that improve self-esteem, confidence, and motivation.
For those seeking to look their very best, preserve their appearance, and minimize the effects of aging, anti-wrinkle injections are incredibly effective and affordable. Anyone looking to reduce the appearance of frown lines, smile lines or any other expression lines can benefit from this treatment.
Who is a good candidate
for anti-wrinkle treatment?
There are two main types of candidates that anti-wrinkle treatment is ideal for:
Reparative Treatment – Sydney residents who already have noticeable signs of aging around the face or neck and want to reduce the appearance of already present and deepening age lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injectables can help give your whole face a much more youthful appearance.
Preventative Treatment – Those wanting to prevent extensive lines from deepening and becoming engrained, typically used by patients in their 20s to 30s. Preventative care slows down the appearance of natural age lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
How is the anti-wrinkle injection procedure done?
We know that having any kind of facial treatment that involves injections can sometimes be a little unnerving. That’s why we do everything we can to ensure that you have the best care and support from all of our team. Below is what you can expect when booking a treatment with us.
During the initial consultation, we will help you determine which treatment is right for you and whether it will help you achieve the results that you’re looking for. We will discuss the potential risks, side effects and aftercare recommendations to ensure that you have all the information available to you. We will also answer questions that you may have regarding the treatment.
On the day of the treatment
On the day of the treatment, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff who will run through the procedure with you one final time. The area to be treated will then be mapped out to highlight the injection site. You will be seated in a reclined position on a cosmetic bed to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. The procedure is very quick and most patients find the injections fairly pain free and only feel a very mild sting. If you do feel any discomfort at all it will subside as soon as the treatment is finished.
What areas can be treated
with anti-wrinkle injections?
There are a number of areas of the face and neck that can be corrected with anti-wrinkle injection treatment:
Frown lines and forehead lines
Forehead and frown lines develop as a person ages and the skin loses collagen. Frown lines tend to appear like 2 vertical lines between the eyebrows and forehead lines are horizontal rows that are caused as a result of you raising your eyebrows. Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily relax the underlying facial muscles so that it allows time for your skin to smooth out which gives you a more youthful appearance.
Crow’s feet appear next to your eyes and are caused by smiling and laughter. These expression lines are the result of the muscle movement in this area of your face. Anti-wrinkle injections can have a real impact on the appearance of these wrinkles, even helping them disappear completely.
By using cosmetic injections to relax the muscles that usually drag down the eyebrows, it enables the arch to float upwards causing a physical lift of the brows.
Bunny lines are the fine lines around the nose that appear when you make a particular facial expression. Anti-wrinkle injectables inhibit movement in the area which allows the skin to reset to its natural position. This treatment can also be used to prevent bunny lines from forming in the first place.
Reduce a ‘gummy smile’
Anti-wrinkle injections are delivered via 2 to 3 points and relax the upper lip muscles, which reduce the amount of gum that is visible when you smile.
Lift sagging at the side of the mouth
Muscles which run from the corners of the lips down to the chin are responsible for the corners of the mouth turning down when frowning. When overused, the repetitive action of frowning can cause sagging at the side of the mouth. Anti-wrinkle injection treatment is used to relax the muscle and lift the sagging effect.
Improve chin lines and dimpling
Chin lines and dimpling is often the result of an overactive chin muscle. Repeated muscle movement causes dimpling and bumps and the overlying skin becomes wrinkled. When placed in the chin muscle, the anti-wrinkle treatment causes the muscle to relax and as a result, the surface looks smooth, while at the same time maintaining natural movement.
Lift and tighten a sagging neck (Platysma muscle)
For this treatment the anti-wrinkle injectables work as a muscle relaxant, tightening and redefining the neck and jawline, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Slim the lower face (Masseter muscles)
Anti-wrinkle injectables can be used to slim and contour the face. This is achieved by targeting the masseter muscles at the back of the jaw. These muscles can give the face a square shape and the use of anti-wrinkle injections helps to reduce the bulk of these muscles.
Excessive sweating can be treated using anti-wrinkle injections. The injections block the nerves that are responsible for activating your sweat glands, preventing them from producing sweat.
What can you expect after
getting anti-wrinkle injections?
Right after treatment, you may see a slight redness around the injection sites but this is completely normal and usually settles within half an hour. You will be able to carry on with your everyday activities right after treatment. However, we would advise that for around 6 hours after treatment you should avoid the following:
- Rub the treated area
- Apply pressure to the treated area
- Do any form of strenuous exercise
- Drink alcohol
- Apply makeup to the treatment area
- Lie flat on your back

Frequently Asked Questions
You may have some further questions regarding anti-wrinkle injections. If so please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
Below are some of our Most Frequently Asked Questions that may help you:
HOW ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS ADMINISTERED INTO THE SKIN?
After the consultation process and once your needs and expectations have been determined, an ice pack is applied to the treatment area to help to reduce the risk of bruising, also numbing your skin to some extent. The area to be treated is cleaned with an alcohol wipe and the actual anti-wrinkle injection procedure involves a small amount of the product being administered into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Normally, the appointment time for anti-wrinkle injections is 20 minutes. This involves consultation and evaluation of your needs, and the actual procedure only takes 2-5 minutes, depending on the amount of anti-wrinkle injections required and the areas being treated.
WILL I FEEL ANY PAIN?
The anti-wrinkle injections may sting for a few seconds, but no anesthetic is required. You will be given an ice pack before your procedure to reduce the discomfort. There may be some swelling and redness at the site of the injections, which tends to resolve within a few minutes and you can resume normal activities afterwards. It is recommended that you do not rub the injected area harshly, and avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hrs post-procedure.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I NOTICE THE RESULTS?
After your anti-wrinkle injections have been completed, it takes 2 to 3 days for the treatment to begin taking effect, and about 14 days to see the full results.
CAN I HAVE BOTH DERMAL FILLERS AND ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Yes. Your needs and expectations will be discussed with Dr Ansari or your nurse injector at your first consultation. If you require both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to achieve the most effective result, we will let you know and make arrangements for both of these procedures with your consent.
