Look visibly younger by treating frown lines, smile lines and forehead lines with Anti-Wrinkle Injections. This safe and effective treatment relaxes facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime.
Lines and wrinkles caused by years of repeating the same facial expressions (frowning and laughing) can sneak up over time and give the face a prematurely aged appearance. They can also make someone look tired or angry when in fact, the opposite is true. Anti-Wrinkle Injections (also called neuromodulators or neurotoxins) can soften the appearance of lines, wrinkles and creases between the brows, forehead and around the eyes.
Anti-Wrinkle medication works below the skin’s surface to stop the movement of underlying muscles. When injected directly into the muscles, it blocks the communication between muscle cells so they’re no longer able to make those expressions. Over the course of 7-14 days the injected areas start to look smoother, more lifted and refreshed.
Why choose Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Gold Coast?
It’s important to realise that Anti-Wrinkle Injections are performed using a prescription medication. For best outcomes the treatment needs to be administered by a qualified medical professional. Our clinic in the Gold Coast has been successfully treating local and international visitors for over ten years. In fact, our team at Cosmos takes neuromodulator injections very seriously to ensure safety, effectiveness and that each patient is 100% happy with their results.
Am I a candidate for Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
You are a good candidate for Anti-Wrinkle Injections if you have dynamic wrinkles or tired appearance in the following areas: frown, forehead, droopy eyebrows, crow’s feet, smoker’s line or bunny lines. Other areas that can benefit from neuromodulator injections are a wide or square jaw and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Medically you would be cleared for treatment if you’re in good health, not pregnant or nursing and have no history of neuromuscular disease (such as multiple sclerosis).
How are Anti-Wrinkle Injections performed?
For new and repeat patients, there’s usually a brief consultation to assess your muscle movement and help determine your aesthetic goals. During your injection appointment your provider will disinfect the area, ask you to make specific facial expressions such as to frown or squint, and then proceed with injecting a small amount of neuromodulator directly into each muscle.
What to expect after the procedure
Immediately after you may have tiny little raised bumps at the injection site. This normally clears up within 20-30 minutes and you can return to work almost immediately. You will be given post-procedure instructions, such as not to touch or rub the area, bend over or lay down for four hours, and refrain from engaging in vigorous activities.
Patients typically start seeing results after 5-7 days and fully after two weeks. The effects develop gradually over time. As the muscles become less active, fine lines and wrinkles becoming less visible. At the 2-week mark your results are fully developed and any necessary touch ups can be done at this time.

How long do the effects last?
The effects normally last 3-6 months after which time the treatment must be repeated to maintain the results. If you choose stop getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections at any point, the treated areas simply return to normal without any permanent changes. The short-lived nature of Anti-Wrinkle Injections is another major advantage of this procedure over more permanent anti-aging techniques.
When should I start getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Is there such as thing as too young? Truth is no right or wrong age to start getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections – provided you’re over 18 and in good health. Twin studies show that Anti-Wrinkle Injections help to prevent lines, wrinkles and overall skin aging. By the same token, you’re never too old to start as treating dynamic lines and wrinkles can soften them considerably and even fade them altogether over time.
How are Anti-Wrinkle Injections different from filler?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections prevent the muscle movement that eventually causes wrinkling. The medication is most commonly administered in the frown area, forehead and around the eyes. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are designed to add volume, correct depressions and contour areas of face such as cheeks, under the eyes, nasolabial folds, jawline and chin. Anti-Wrinkles Injections can be used together with fillers to revitalise and rejuvenate the face.
