Look and feel the youngest you have in years with The Aesthetic Collective's premium quality anti-wrinkle injections in Brisbane. Just because wrinkles are a natural part of ageing, it doesn’t mean you need to accept them!
Anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular cosmetic treatment closely followed by dermal fillers. The actual name of the anti-wrinkle injections can’t be used as it’s a prescription medication & cannot be advertised to the public.
The process of these injections is a relatively quick & easy which involve the injection of a small amount of a purified protein into specific muscles of the face. This medication causes these muscles to relax creating a softening of the wrinkles above them. This results in a fresher, rejuvenated appearance in the treated areas.
It is extremely important that if you are considering anti-wrinkle injections for the first time, that you understand that there is more than one type of medication that can be used and that even though they all work in the same way, the doses required vary between the products.
Our premium quality anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most effective and cost effective non-surgical treatments for correcting lines and wrinkles, caused by muscle movement. Wrinkles and lines are a natural part of ageing that form over time through repeated muscle movements, which cause deep and irreversible facial folds to form. Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles in your face that directly cause facial wrinkles, allowing you to achieve a rejuvenated appearance and a much younger-looking you. Our anti-wrinkle injections offered can be used to treat:
- Forehead - Horizontal lines above the eyebrows
- Frown lines – Vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet – Lines at the side of the eyes
- Brow Lifts
- Lip Flips
- Smile lines – side of the nose (bunny lines)
- Gummy smile
- Asymmetrical eyebrows
- General lines or wrinkles - around the mouth and/or caused by sun exposure
The exact dose required varies between clients dependent on age, muscle strength & desired look. A medical consultation with our doctor and Registered Nurse is required in order to assess each client’s needs.
Depending on the condition of your skin, results may be visible as early as 3-5 days of receiving treatment. Generally, you’ll see full results 10-14 days following the injections and lasts approx 2-4 months. It’s important to note that the recommended dose will vary depending on individual muscle strength, severity of the lines and desired look. It is essential to attend your follow up appointment for our Registered Nurses to assess your treatment and at this point can do dose adjustments for optimal results to be achieved (additional charges may apply).
The use of anti-wrinkle injections is not just for the relaxation of lines of facial expression and wrinkles. Masseter reduction or jawline slimming for cosmetic purposes is a simple and effective procedure which is why it is so popular. This procedure involves the injection of wrinkle relaxers into the large masseter muscles to create a slim and more feminine jawline. This is also a common and extremely effective treatment for teeth grinding, or bruxism. The procedure is highly effective, with minimal or no pain and absolutely no downtime at all. Minor side effects such as bruising and swelling to the injections points may be seen.
The number of units required vary patient to patient dependent on strength of muscle.
