    Anti-wrinkle injections use a commercially prepared toxin from Clostridium Botulinum to temporarily block nerve signals to injected facial muscles.

    Also known as anti-wrinkle treatment, it causes a controlled relaxation of the facial muscles reducing skin bunching. This improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and slows their progression.

    Clostridium Botulinum is a bacteria that is famous for producing botulinum toxin. Commercially available anti-wrinkle injections are based on this compound.

    We develop wrinkles with age as our skin becomes thinner and weaker.

    Repetitive skin bunching that occurs with normal facial movement creases the skin. As the skin loses collagen and elastic, these creases become permanent.

    Common areas that we develop wrinkles are:

    • Horizontal forehead lines: caused by skin bunching when raising your eyebrows. Due to activity of the frontalis muscle.
    • Frown lines (between your eyebrows): results from skin bunching when scowling or squinting. Due to activity of the procerus, corrugator supercilii and depressor supercilii muscles.
    • Crow’s feet: the wrinkles that extend away from the outer corner of your eyes. Seen when smiling and squinting. Due to obicularis oculi muscle activity.

    If you’re bothered by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, lips, and forehead, then anti-wrinkle injections are for you.

    They are a safe and effective treatment that is proven to soften fine lines, and give a refreshed appearance.

    Absolutely! More men are turning to anti-wrinkle injections as they learn about the many benefits.

    Anti-wrinkle injections give a naturally refreshed appearance. You’ll look rested, and your wrinkles softened, without looking frozen or expressionless.

    The most common areas men get anti-wrinkle treatment are the frown line (between the eyebrows), and the crow’s feet (around the outer eyes).

    Anti-wrinkle injections selectively relax muscles. This reduces softens wrinkles by preventing skin bunching, slims bulky muscles, and lifts facial features.

    Dermal filler is an injectable gel that replaces facial fat and bone lost with age or weight loss. Fillers are used to reshape facial features, correct hollowness, and soften deep wrinkles and skin creases.

    No, your wrinkles will not look worse if you stop anti-wrinkle injections. If you decide to stop regular treatments for your wrinkles. they will gradually return to normal.

    As anti-wrinkle injections have preventative benefits, they will have slowed down the development of wrinkles.

    As your skin still undergoes collagen loss and is damaged by the sun regardless of anti-wrinkle treatment, its important to look after it comprehensively.

    Most people get their first anti-wrinkle treatment in their 20’s. The younger you are when starting treatment, the more preventative benefits you get. It is easier to prevent wrinkles forming than to reverse them once developed.

    Some people get anti-wrinkle injections to lift their brows and prevent strong frown and scowl expressions. It also helps to reduce makeup creasing on your forehead and around your eyes.

    Anti-wrinkle injections are also used by people of all ages to alleviate tension-related headaches and migraines.

    Most people undergo anti-wrinkle injections 2-4 times per year.

    You should wait for the effect from your previous treatment to almost wear off before repeating. This usually takes 3-5 months.

    If you stop getting anti-wrinkle injections, your wrinkles will eventually return.

    You will still retain the preventative benefits of having the treatment.

    Anti-wrinkle injections make you look younger and refreshed. They do this by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and opening up your eyes.

    As wrinkles and heavy eyebrows are a common sign of ageing, improving them gives a more youthful look.

    While there are many treatments available claiming to improve wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections are the most effective.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles in as little as 3-5 days, with results lasting an average of 3-4 months.

    Anti-wrinkle injections are measured in units.

    While all brands of anti-wrinkle are measured this way, units between brands are not interchangeable.

    A unit of a certain anti-wrinkle brand is not the same as a unit of a different anti-wrinkle brand.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can be injected in  areas of high movement around your face to reduce wrinkles. The most common areas treated are around the eyes and mouth.

    We can use anti-wrinkle injections to lift your eyebrows, reduce a gummy smile, increase lip height, lift your mouth corners, smooth chin dimples, and slim your jawline.

    Anti wrinkle treatments have other benefits too. They can treat excessive sweating, slim muscular calves, reduce trapezius muscles, and relieve TMJ pain and jaw clenching.

    There are a number of anti-wrinkle brands available in Australia. By law, we cannot disclose the name of these products.

    Every product works the same way, with the differences in result generally being due to dose and technique, rather than product.

    One anti-wrinkle brand is highly pure, with evidence suggesting that it has the lowest risk of causing immunity. For this reason, we generally recommend this brand, although the others are also reasonable if you have a preference.

    The products used for anti-wrinkle treatments are scheduled medications in Australia. When a cosmetic clinic provides information online, the material is considered advertising, even if the content is purely informational.

    It is against Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) law to name the brands of anti-wrinkle product in advertising. This means we cannot mention brand names.

    As a doctor-led cosmetic clinic, we have access to all brands of anti-wrinkle product. During your consultation, we can discuss the pros and cons of each option, and provide recommendations on which one is suitable for you.

    Sleeping on your side or stomach can cause sleep lines and wrinkles. These lines run vertically or diagonally along your face (usually on your forehead and cheek). They cannot be treated with anti-wrinkle injections because they are not caused by muscle movement.

    If you want to treat sleep lines and wrinkles, we offer sleep line filler. This is an effective way to soften wrinkles caused by sleeping on your face.

    We recommend having a trial of anti-wrinkle treatment 6 months before your wedding.

    As anti-wrinkle treatments are not reversible, this allows enough time for the result to wear off.

    If you are happy with the result, then you should repeat the treatment 3-4 weeks before your wedding.

    Anti-wrinkle product is made of a protein. Enzymes known as proteases gradually break the anti-wrinkle protein down. The by-products are then metabolised by your body.

    There is some evidence that you can become tolerant to anti-wrinkle injections. The theory is that the body produces antibodies to the anti-wrinkle product.

    Antibodies break down the anti-wrinkle product before it takes affect.

    People who are regularly over-treated are more likely to develop immunity.

    One brand of anti-wrinkle product in Australia is highly pure, and is less likely to cause tolerance.

    Yes! Anti-wrinkle treatment can prevent the development of wrinkles. By reducing skin bunching and creasing, your skin is protected from wrinkle formation.

    Legally you can have anti-wrinkle injections if you are aged under 18. However you are required to have at least 7 days between your consultation and treatment.

    We do not treat people under 18 with anti-wrinkle injections here at Cosmetic Connection.

    Anti-wrinkle injections are not recommended during pregnancy. It is classed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as a category B3 medication. This means it should not be used to treat pregnant women.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can slim your square jaw. This works by relaxing and slimming the masseter muscles at the back of your jawline.

    This treatment is called jawline slimming injections.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can improve the appearance of a crooked smile. We treat the smile and lip muscles to balance the forces applied to your smile.

    Anti-wrinkle treatment takes 5-10 minutes. We use very fine needles to precisely place anti-wrinkle product into facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

    After treatment, you may notice small bumps that quickly resolve in 10-15 minutes.

    Your result will start to develop 3-5 days later, peaking in 14 days. The effect then wears off gradually over an average of 3-4 months.

    Anti-wrinkle injections only have a very slight pinching sensation. This is only felt during the actual injection, which takes less than a second.

    We have a range of numbing options for people worried about discomfort. Combined with ultra-fine needles and a gentle approach, anti-wrinkle injections with us are generally a comfortable experience.

    It is usually ok to have anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers in the same appointment.

    If you need dermal filler and anti-wrinkle in the same area, then we may need to perform then on separate days.

    Most evidence shows that anti-wrinkle injections will spread about 1.5cm.

    The amount anti-wrinkle spreads depends on how much volume is injected.

    You can expect your anti-wrinkle treatment to last 3-4 months. Your result peaks after 2 weeks, and then gradually wears off.

    You can increase the longevity by increasing the number of units injected, an by having anti-wrinkle treatments regularly.

    When done correctly, no one will notice that you have had anti-wrinkle treatment.

    Your skin will look fresh and radiant without appearing frozen. You’ll still be able to make facial expressions, and your facial features will look normal.

    When performed correctly, you will still be able to make normal facial expressions after anti-wrinkle treatment.

    To achieve the best anti-wrinkle treatment result, follow our top tips:

    • Have your anti-wrinkle injections at a dedicated, doctor-led clinic.
    • Treat your face in a balanced way to ensure a natural result. This also avoids untreated areas compensating and ageing prematurely.
    • Have treatment regularly. Inconsistent anti-wrinkle treatment is not effective at preventing wrinkles. Aim for 2-4 treatments per year.
    • Combine your anti-wrinkle treatment with high-quality skincare and daily sun protection.

    There are three ways to make your anti-wrinkle treatment last longer:

    • Amount of product used
      • Higher doses will generally last longer.
    • Precision of injection
      • The more precise your treatment, the longer your result will last.
    • Consistency of treatment
      • Undergoing regular maintenance increases the longevity.

    You can start to notice the result from anti-wrinkle treatment in 3-5 days. The final result is typically seen 2 weeks after your injections.

    Anti-wrinkle product is made of a protein. After injection, it acts at the junction between your facial nerves and muscles.

    Our body has natural enzymes known as proteases that break down proteins. Over time, these metabolise anti-wrinkle product. This leads to the effect wearing off, and normal facial movement returning.

    You can become resistant or immune to anti-wrinkle injections.

    Certain brands have a higher risk of causing this, because they contain stabilising proteins. These proteins can trigger the immune system.

    Having high doses and frequent treatments increases the risk of developing anti-wrinkle resistance.

    If you have become resistant to anti-wrinkle injections, we generally advise waiting 2 years before trying again. You should also switch to the anti-wrinkle brand that has no stabilising proteins.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can stop working if you develop resistance. This is a problem where your body produces antibodies to the anti-wrinkle product.

    Having high doses and frequent treatments using anti-wrinkle product containing stabilising proteins increases the risk.

    If your anti-wrinkle injections have stopped working, you can try the pure anti-wrinkle brand, and wait 1-2 years before having another treatment.

    High doses of anti-wrinkle product can give your skin a shiny appearance. As high doses result in no movement, your skin will be extremely smooth.

    Smooth skin reflects light very effectively, giving it a shiny quality.

    Anti-wrinkle treatment prevents skin bunching and wrinkling. This keeps your makeup smooth, as it prevents it collecting in skin creases that form with strong facial expressions.

    After your anti-wrinkle treatment, the product slowly moves into the facial nerve endings. This is a gradual process, which is why it takes up to 14 days to see the result from anti-wrinkle injections.

    There are 4 factors that influence the longevity of anti-wrinkle injections:

    1. The number of units injected: Higher doses (more units) last longer.
    2. The size and strength of the muscle injected: The effect will last longer in smaller, weaker muscles.
    3. Your metabolism: The amount of proteases you naturally have, and how well they work will affect the longevity.
    4. Treatment precision: The more precise your treatment, the longer your result will last. This is why its important to go to a dedicated, doctor-led cosmetic clinic that has high standards of practice.

    Anti-wrinkle injections last 3-4 months on average. Some areas last longer, and others slightly less.

    The longevity of anti-wrinkle treatment depends on the area injected, the precision of your treatment, how many units were used, and your metabolism.

    Your skin will not look worse once your anti-wrinkle treatment wear off.

    While it will go back to how it was before your treatment, it will be in better condition because of the preventative benefits of anti-wrinkle injections.

    If you are not happy with the result of anti-wrinkle, you can feel assured knowing that the changes are not permanent.

    Your result will gradually wear off over 3-4 months.

    Most concerns people have after anti-wrinkle injections can be resolved with a touch up treatment.

    Before having anti-wrinkle treatment, you should follow the preparation guidelines:

    • Cease all anti-inflammatories and supplements one week before your treatment (unless you have been advised to take these by a medical practitioner)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol 24 hours before and after your treatment
    • Refrain from intense exercise on the day of your appointment
    • Remove all makeup prior to your treatment

    Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, no downtime procedure. For the optimal result, we suggest that you adhere to the following aftercare steps:

    • Apply a wrapped ice pack gently for any discomfort
    • Do not touch or apply pressure to the treated area for 4 hours

    After anti-wrinkle treatment, you may notice slight redness and small bumps at the injection sites. This will resolve in about 15 minutes.

    After having anti-wrinkle injections, you may notice slight redness and small bumps at the injection sites. These will go away in 15 minutes.

    In 3-4 days time, the result will start to take effect. You’ll see your wrinkles becoming smoother each day.

    The final result is seen 14 days after your treatment.

    Avoid applying makeup until the day after your anti-wrinkle injections. This allows time for the injection sites to heal over.

    You can wash your face immediately after having anti-wrinkle injections. When washing your face be gentle, avoiding any pressure to the injected sites. Pressing on the injected areas can disperse the product, and must be avoided.

    Anti-wrinkle injections are a walk-in walk-out procedure with no downtime. Treatment takes 5-10 minutes, and you can return to almost all normal activity immediately after your appointment.

    Yes you can lie down after anti-wrinkle injections. Just make sure to avoid any firm pressure being applied to the treated areas.

    You can sleep immediately after your anti-wrinkle injections.

    If you are going to sleep after anti-wrinkle injections, you should avoid applying any firm pressure to the treated areas.

    You can do gentle exercise immediately after your anti-wrinkle injections. Avoid strenuous exercise until the day after your treatment to minimise swelling.

    You can drink a small amount of alcohol after anti-wrinkle injections. We recommend avoiding excessive alcohol for 24 hours to minimise swelling and bruising.

    Excessive alcohol also impairs judgement. This means you will be less likely to follow anti-wrinkle aftercare precautions.

    You are able to shower immediately after anti-wrinkle injections. Avoid hot showers until the following day to minimise swelling.

    Yes, you can drink coffee before having anti-wrinkle injections. This will not affect your treatment or result.

    To reduce bruising after anti-wrinkle injections, avoid alcohol and intense exercise before and after your treatment.

    Another way to reduce bruising is to have anti-wrinkle injections at an experienced doctor-led cosmetic clinic. Experienced injectors are more likely to take more care to avoid blood vessels during your treatment.

    Yes, you are able to apply makeup 4 hours after having anti-wrinkle injections.

    Yes, you are able to go in the sun immediately after anti-wrinkle injections. The sun will not have any affect on your result.

    Anti-wrinkle injections have been used worldwide for decades. They have a great safety profile, and are categorised as low-risk.

    Anti-wrinkle injections have an incredible safety record. You may experience minor, short term side effects after injection such as redness and local swelling. Rare side effects include:

    • Bruising: Uncommon and can be covered with makeup the day after your treatment.
    • Eyelid or eyebrow drooping (ptosis): This occurs the brow and lid muscles have been inadvertently treated. It can be prevented with a careful and precise injection technique, and by following the aftercare instructions.

      Your appointment

      Upon arriving at our inclusive and private clinic, you will be welcomed by our friendly reception team. We will confirm your contact details and ensure that you have completed all relevant forms.

      Your session will commence with a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced medical professionals.

      We will take the time to understand your concerns and goals, and assess your suitability for our treatments.

      You will learn about the different treatment options available to you, and have ample opportunity to ask any questions.

      We will ensure that you completely understand the discussion, and design a personalised treatment plan for you.

      After designing your personalised treatment, we will explain the most important details to you. This includes information about how your treatment works, aftercare information, the risks involved, and the results you can expect.

      Before proceeding with treatment, we will take clinical photos. This ensures that we have a reference point to track your treatment journey. We keep all clinical images confidential unless you give us permission to share them.

      Your comfort is our priority. We understand that pain is one of the biggest concerns people have about their cosmetic procedure.

      Using the highest quality equipment, premium products that contain local anaesthetic, and an extremely gentle technique, our treatments are some of the most comfortable available.

      As a doctor-led clinic, we also have access to a range of high-strength numbing options. These include specially formulated numbing cream, ice, numbing injections and distraction devices.

      The procedure will be performed professionally, with a high attention to detail and the utmost care and caution. Our doctors prioritise three things when it comes to your treatment: your safety, your result, and your comfort.

      With emergency equipment on-site and long appointment times, we guarantee your safety is our priority, and that your treatments are never rushed.

      Following the treatment, we will advise you on how to care for the treated area to ensure a smooth and swift recovery. You will also receive an email with detailed aftercare instructions.

      All treatments performed at Cosmetic Connection come with the option of a complimentary follow-up appointment.
