What is Anti Wrinkle Injections?

Get smooth, wrinkle-free skin with anti-wrinkle injections

Constant use of facial muscles for laughing, smiling, frowning, and other signs of expressions may result in the development of creases and fine lines on the face, particularly around the eyes and in the area around the forehead. This often renders a stressed out and tired appearance to an individual. Everyday stress, tension, poor eating habits and wrong lifestyle choices can also lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. If you wish to get rid of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, and want to look younger and beautiful, choose to get anti-wrinkle injections.

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are non-invasive, quick and

effective means of treating wrinkles caused by habitual contraction of the tiny muscles of the face which wrinkle the overlying skin. They produce the best result when used on deep frown lines and nasolabial folds. Anti-wrinkle injections make use of a modified form of a naturally occurring substance that blocks the signals between one’s facial nerves and the superficial muscles, allowing the skin to relax ultimately. Unlike fraxel laser treatment and dermal fillers that work on a mechanical basis by lifting and filling out facial volume in order to erase wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections work on the biological basis.


The procedure is quite simple and takes about 10-15 minutes. Your aesthetician or dermatologist would map out the area that needs to be treated and would then give you a large number of small injections in the area where the muscles are causing your wrinkles, each to a specific depth and with a specific volume of fluid. Most people who undergo this procedure say that they feel like a mosquito bite. They do not experience any pain and physical discomfort.

Patients enjoy the results of the anti-wrinkle injections within 3-7 days of the treatment. The effect usually lasts for about 3-4 months. After which the patient may choose to get the anti-wrinkle injections again for a wrinkle-free, smooth, and younger-looking skin.

Who is the best candidate?

The best candidates for anti-wrinkle injections are people between the age of 25 and 65. In case of people who are above 65 years of age, wrinkles become static and they do not change when relaxing the face. Since each person is different it is advisable to undergo a consultation with experienced and qualified dermatologist or aesthetician offering anti-wrinkle injection treatment.

  • Mild Bruising
  • Slight Pain
  • headache

  • redness
  • skin tightness

When performed by a qualified and experienced dermatologist or skin care specialist, there are hardly any complications and the patients are able to get smooth, soft, and younger-looking skin with the help of anti-wrinkle injections.

What is the Cost?

The cost of anti-wrinkle injections depends on the number of units that are being administered. And the number of units is influenced by the area that is being treated, the strength of the muscles, and the depth of the wrinkles. Since bigger muscles require more anti-wrinkle injections, the cost of the treatment would also be more compared to smaller muscles. Normally, the cost of anti-wrinkle injections for treating forehead is around $200 and that around the eyes is $400. For calves, the cost of anti-wrinkle injections is between $2000 and $3000. To get the exact cost, you must consult your dermatologist in Australia.
