Anti Wrinkle injections are an effective and non-surgical way to rejuvenate the face and reduce lines and wrinkles. By relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles like forehead and frown lines, crows feet and smokers and laughter lines, these injections help produce a younger, more refreshed, natural look.

ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS RIGHT FOR ME?
You may want to consider this treatment if you have unwanted facial wrinkles; both static and dynamic. Patients must ensure they are in good health and have realistic expectations. Patients that are pregnant or lactating cannot be treated with anti-wrinkle injections.
Whether you are 25 or 75, if you are in need of a brow lift, have lines or wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, around the corners of your mouth, forehead lines, or other places on your face or neck, anti-wrinkle injections may be a good treatment option for you. A growing number of patients also combat excessive sweating, headaches/migraines and chronic muscle pain with anti-wrinkle injection therapy.
So, how do anti wrinkle injections work? Anti-wrinkle injectables are a purified protein that has been diluted and works by blocking the chemical signal that the nerves send to the muscle telling the muscle to contract. Put simply, this means that when the brain says ‘frown, I’m concentrating’, the muscles are saying ‘I can’t hear you’.
In effect the treatment relaxes and lifts the muscle, softening the look of lines and giving a tighter, smoother appearance. Only small amounts of the product are administered so that your body will easily break it down after a period of time and after it has had its desired effect.

WHAT DOES ANTI WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENT INVOLVE?
When you visit one of our Melbourne clinics we will carefully assess your face to tailor an individual plan for you. The quick and simple treatment involves a series of extremely fine needles injected under the skin. Discomfort is minimal and brief – most patients compare it to a mosquito bite – and the process takes only minutes. No anaesthetic is required and normal activities can be resumed immediately but Dr Tass also offers pain management options during anti wrinkle injections.
HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST - INTERVALS?
Most clients will require anti wrinkle injectable treatments approximately three times per year to maintain their results. ( Every 3-4 months) This however is variable depending on how long the treatment last which may differ from patient to patient.
This also depends on the area of treatments as the product can last longer in some muscle groups than others. Age and lifestyle factors contribute greatly to the quantity of filler required. Upon consultation, a thorough and in-depth discussion between the client and practitioner will help to create a treatment plan and more accurate quote.
The patient will also gain a clearer understanding of the treatment and managing expectations.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Anti wrinkle injections have a proven effective record of over 30 years and are suitable for everyone no matter how old or what gender. The injections directly affect the wrinkles or lines caused by the contraction of facial muscles.
Anti wrinkle injections will enhance and refresh your look. If, at any time, you choose to cease treatment, your muscles will eventually return to normal and your facial lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.
Anti wrinkle injection side effects are minimal. Please consult with your doctor to find out more.
It generally takes 3-5 days for the product to begin taking effect however it will take 10-14 days for the complete end result. This may differ slightly for different areas of injection. The effect should last 3-4 months. The treatment may be less effective for people over 60 due to poorer muscle tone.
ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS SAFE?
Anti wrinkle side effects are mostly temporary and not widely common. Possible side effects include pain, burning or stinging; bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site; local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids or brows; headaches or aching forehead.
If you have any concerns about side effects speak to your Doctor.
