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.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections (also known as neuromodulators or neurotoxins) work below the skin’s surface to stop the movement of underlying muscles. The treatment is typically used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in areas such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.
When injected directly into the muscles, neuromodulators block the nerve impulses between muscle cells. Over the course of 7-14 days the injected areas start to look smoother, more refreshed and lifted in appearance. If you’re starting to look tired and even though you’re getting plenty of rest, Anti-Wrinkle Injections can help you look well-rested and more youthful.
Why choose Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Sydney?
When it comes to Anti-Wrinkle Injections, experience is very important. We’ve been treating patients from Sydney, as well as international visitors, for over ten years. There’s a reason why neuromodulator injections are considered the number one cosmetic treatment; it’s minimally-invasive, only takes a few minutes and produces consistent results.
Who is the best candidate for Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
The ideal candidate for Anti-Wrinkle Injections is someone is who is physically healthy, has no history of neuromuscular disease (such as multiple sclerosis), and is not pregnant or nursing. You would benefit from treatment if you have any of the following concerns: frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet, a square or wide jaw, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), smoker’s lines, bunny lines or droopy eyebrows.
How are Anti-Wrinkle Injections performed?
The consultation is a key part of the process. At this time your injector will ask you some questions to better understand your goals and concerns. During your actual appointment they 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.
What’s the difference between dynamic and static wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles result from repeated muscle movement in areas such as the frown, forehead and crow’s feet. During our teens, 20’s and 30’s, dynamic wrinkles are not visible when the face is at rest. Over time, however, as we lose the natural collagen and elasticity in our skin, dynamic lines turn into static wrinkles – visible even when the face is not moving.
Static wrinkles are more difficult to treat because they have become “etched in” into the skin. They may also be caused by other reasons such as sun damage and aging. In most cases Anti-Wrinkles Injections will not improve the appearance of static lines. Treatments such as laser, ultrasound therapy and CIT (collagen induction therapy) may be necessary to address them.
Are Anti-Wrinkle Injection Safe?
Yes, the treatment is not only 100% safe but is clinically-proven to be non-toxic even in mega doses. Anti-Wrinkle Injections were originally used to treat neurological disorders such as muscle spasms, cerebral palsy and other ailments. The amount of neurotoxin used in these cases is considerable higher than what is typically used cosmetically. The medication leaves the system after a few days and has no history of bioaccumulation or serious side-effects.
