Reduce wrinkles and soften expression lines
Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, effective, non-invasive treatment to reduce wrinkles and soften expression lines. Relaxing the muscles, removing frown lines, so your skin looks smoother and helps you look and feel more confident.
Our experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Registered Nurses administer a muscle relaxant to smooth lines caused by dynamic muscle activity, such as frowning and smiling.
Anti-wrinkle injections may be used to treat:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crows’ feet
- Forehead lines
- Lip lines
- Lines on the nose (Bunny Lines)
- Drooping eyebrows
- Lines and puckering caused by movement on the chin
- Muscular bands in the neck and sagging jaw line (Nefertiti Lift)
Anti-wrinkle injections are also used for therapeutic purposes, and may treat excessive sweating, migraine or issues with teeth clenching and grinding.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a purified protein derivative of a bacterial toxin, called Botulinum Toxin A. When injected into muscles of facial expression, it influences the neuromuscular junction (the area where nerves and muscles communicate) and blocks transmission of nerve signals to muscles, which in turn causes muscle relaxation.
Over time, repeated facial movements can cause wrinkles and expression lines to develop and deepen. By relaxing the muscles causing facial expression lines and reducing their movement, this can remove or reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles, depending on how deep they are, and can also prevent new ones from developing.
It all starts with your consultation
Every treatment at Southern Cosmetics is customised to fit you! This starts with a detailed initial consultation with your treating clinician where a full medical history is taken, and your concerns and desired outcomes discussed. Your tailored treatment plan is then decided upon to best suit your personal aims.
How long until I see results of anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections may start working in one to two days, but generally it takes two weeks to see the full effect of a treatment. In most instances, your practitioner will assess your results after two weeks, and occasionally a top up dose will be required.
Your skin will appear tighter and smoother, and wrinkles will appear less pronounced or may disappear completely. The effects usually last around 3-4 months, depending on the dosage and the individual.
Recommended treatments: Depends on what you’re trying to achieve. Your clinician will provide advice about where to administer anti-wrinkle injections for optimal results.
How much do anti-wrinkle injections cost?
