Injections of anti-wrinkle treatment to smooth static and dynamic wrinkles
Are you tired of looking in the mirror or at a photo and seeing wrinkles? You’re not alone. Anti-wrinkle injections performed by an experienced medical doctor are an effective solution to get rid of those bothersome wrinkles and keep them at bay.
You can refresh and rejuvenate your appearance naturally with premium anti-wrinkle injections.
Anti wrinkle injections smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and prevent deeper ones from forming. They can improve skin quality, and help to lift sagging brows. Even better, anti-wrinkle injections can prevent makeup creasing, meaning you can head out on the town with confidence.
When it comes to wrinkles, there are generally two types: static – wrinkles that are visible when you are relaxed and not moving your face; and dynamic – wrinkles that are visible when you move your face and make expressions.
Both static and dynamic wrinkles can be improved with anti-wrinkle injections. Softening static wrinkles is the primary goal of any anti-wrinkle treatment. relaxing the muscles of facial movement reduces skin folding, stopping wrinkles from becoming etched into the skin. Dynamic wrinkles will also be improved with anti-wrinkle injections. The improvement in dynamic wrinkles will be proportional to how extensive your treatment is, but go too far, and you’ll end up frozen.
Understanding that anti-wrinkle injections should treat static lines, and only soften dynamic lines is fundamental to achieving great yet natural results. Unfortunately, this critical consideration is not widely known amongst cosmetic professionals or the public.
Ensuring that your anti-wrinkle treatment and cosmetic injectables are performed by a trained and experienced expert means that you can achieve better and more natural short and long term results.
How anti-wrinkle injections really work
In Melbourne, anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most sought after cosmetic treatments available. They are simple, safe and have no downtime, and can consistently produce great results. Anti-wrinkle injections have a simple mechanism of action. They work by interrupting the communication between a nerve ending, and the nerve endings target. The result is a reduction in the activity of the target of the nerve. The most common anti-wrinkle treatments target nerves that communicate with muscles, normally telling them to contract. By interrupting the communication, the muscles relax. The result of this depends on the muscle injected, but it can improve wrinkles by reducing the muscle activity that bunches the skin. It can also slim certain features, such as the face when treating the bite muscle (known as facial slimming), and the calves (known as calf slimming).
Anti wrinkle injections can also reduce oil and sweat production by the same mechanism.
The most common treatments with anti-wrinkle injections in Australia are:
The effect produced by anti-wrinkle injections generally lasts anywhere from 2-9 months. The longevity depends on the area of the face or body treated, the type of treatment (wrinkle reduction injections; anti-sweat injections; slimming injections), and how much anti-wrinkle product is injected.
Anti wrinkle product is measured in units, and the units of each brand are not equivalent to the others. Injecting too many units of anti-wrinkle treatment can have unwanted effects, such as a frozen appearance, or excessive weakness, although these are temporary problems that improve on their own.
Benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

- treat a gummy smile;
- improve a pebbled chin;
- control excessive oil production;
- treat migraines and headaches;

- treat problem sweating;
- slim the calves.
Should young people get anti-wrinkle injection treatment?
Anti wrinkle injections aren’t just for those looking to age gracefully. There are many benefits to having anti-wrinkle injections when you’re young. Anti-wrinkle treatment can prevent the development of wrinkles, helping you to look naturally younger for longer. Injections of anti-wrinkle products can also control oil and sweat production and can prevent your makeup from creasing. Not only this, but when used with precision, anti-wrinkle injections can improve your appearance by slimming the face and calves, improving a gummy smile, and lifting the tail of your brows.
The difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers
Anti wrinkle injections work on nerve endings to reduce their communication with their target. They produce different effects depending on where they are injected, including an improvement in wrinkles, reduction in sweat and oil production, and slimming of the face. You’ll see results after about 7 days, with a maximum effect after two weeks, and results generally last a few months.
Dermal fillers are a volumising gel that can be injected into various parts of the face and body to change the shape or restore lost volume. It has other cosmetic and anti-ageing uses, with results that are immediate and may last years. Common areas injected with dermal fillers include the cheeks, lips, nose, chin and jawline. Dermal fillers can also be injected under the eyes, in the forehead, and even in the male intimate area! Check out the page on dermal fillers for more information.
What is an anti-wrinkle unit – How many units do you need for anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti wrinkle injections are measured in units. While there are a few different brands of anti-wrinkle treatment available, and all areas measured in units, one unit of one brand is not the same amount as one unit of another. This is why you may see different prices per unit when researching how much anti-wrinkle injections cost. Depending on which brand is being used for your treatment, you will need a different number of units. Anywhere from as low as four units of one brand (or ten of another) may be used for small areas such as a brow lift. Larger treatments like calf slimming may require up to 300 (or 750) units of anti-wrinkle product to get a result.
What brands of anti-wrinkle treatment is there in Australia?
There are three brands of anti-wrinkle products available in Australia at the time of writing this article. Due to current TGA legislation, the trade names, generic names and even nicknames cannot be referenced. Each type is very slightly different, but they each have the same mechanism of effect. The two most common types of anti-wrinkle products have a risk of causing anti-wrinkle immunity, whilst the third type has no reported cases of people becoming immune to its effects. The results of each product are the same as long as your treatment is done consistently, and the correct equivalent dose is done if using a different type. The difficulty is that there is no consensus on how much of one product is equivalent to another, as the units are not interchangeable.
Can you become immune to anti-wrinkle injection treatments?
Of the three types of anti-wrinkle injections currently available in Australia, two types have evidence of causing immunity for some people when used consistently over time. If this happens, the product will no longer work. Sometimes, if you have a break from treatment (for at least a year), then the immunity may reduce. One type of anti-wrinkle product available has no reported cases of evidence of ever causing immunity.
