Wrinkle injections target facial areas where repeated muscle movements cause lines and wrinkles. Wrinkle injections are used to relax the muscles by stopping the communication between the nerve and muscle so these repeated movements don’t occur, so reducing wrinkles. We require an initial consultation be completed prior to wrinkle injections being considered for administration. This initial consultation allows us to assess the condition of your skin and better understand your desired outcomes and expectations. At the conclusion of your initial consultation we provide you with a recommended treatment plan and related quote. Call us today to book your 20min free initial consultation – consultations extending beyond this time will be charged at $40 per hour or part thereof.
The repeated action of drawing eyebrows together into a frown can result in wrinkles or fine lines. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the muscles so they don’t continue these line-inducing movements.
Repeated squinting, frowning and general ageing of skin can lead to crow’s feet appearing – fine lines fanning out from the corner of the eyes. Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce the incidence of line-inducing repeated muscle movements.
Continually raising our eyebrows as if in surprise or question can result in fine horizontal lines appearing across the forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to smooth out these lines by relaxing the muscles from their repeated actions.
As we age collagen and elastic production in the skin decreases and repeated muscle movements leave their mark. Often this results in a horizontal line just above the chin, commonly called a chin crease. Anti-wrinkle injections targeting the muscles in and around the chin can smooth out the wrinkles and the crease where repeated muscle movements have resulted in the defined line.
High Lip Line
Anti-wrinkle injections can be an effective treatment of high lip line, particularly where the ‘gummy smile’ is a result of an overactive lip movement.
A prominent or square jawline can sometimes be the result of overactive chewing (masseter) muscles. Anti-wrinkle injections target these muscles, reducing the bulk-inducing movements.
‘DAO’ or depressor anguli oris is the muscle responsible for a droopy mouth appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the DAO muscles, stopping them from pulling down the corners of the mouth, resulting in a softer, more favourable appearance.
