Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are a cosmetic procedure that has been in use for decades now. It’s main use is to remove the wrinkles from the skin. Sometimes people refer to anti-wrinkle injections as “Anti-wrinkle injections”, “Anti-wrinkle injections”, or “Injectables”. For deep lines your consultant may choose to use dermal filler in conjunction with “Injectables”. The substances used in anti-wrinkle injections are dermal fillers and botulinum toxin Type A. This is available in Australia under the names of “Anti-wrinkle injections” and “Anti-wrinkle injections”.

When the toxin is injected into the muscle, it blocks the nerve impulses that are believed to produce contraction of the muscles. As the contracted muscles are treated, the skin becomes smoother and leads to the appearance of a more relaxed face. There is little in terms of age restriction, anti-wrinkle injections can be given to people from 18 to 65. In Australia the cosmetic use of Botulinum toxin Type A is restricted to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows.

Botulinum toxin Type A can also be used for problems related to excessive sweating. It can successfully inhibit sweating and easily solves the problem of excess underarms perspiration. There are many other uses of Botulinum toxin Type A, including treating the problem of being cross-eyed and difficulties with an overactive bladder. However, the main use for which it is well-known is for its cosmetic purpose i.e. to reduce wrinkles on a temporary basis.

The history of botulinum toxin Type A dates back to 1977 when it was first brought into use. It’s actually a toxin of a bacteria named Clostridium botulinum, initially used to treat a condition called strabismus, a condition for muscle problems of the eyes. It was approved to be used as an anti-spasmodic agent in the late 1980’s.

Botulinum toxin Type A was recognised as an anti wrinkle solution when it was found out that people who were treated for unrestrained muscle spasms of the face – with Botulinum toxin Type A – got their wrinkles reduced. The doctors started its use as an anti-wrinkle solution in 1996 and the FDA approved its use as an anti-wrinkle solution in 2002. Since then, its sole purpose and use has been mainly in the removal of wrinkles.

Good Candidates for anti-wrinkle injections?

  • Those showing early signs of ageing
  • People with frown lines or lines that make them look sad, angry or tired.
  • Those who cannot undergo invasive cosmetic facial procedures.


There are certain contraindications to the use of Anti-wrinkle injections. First you need to tell your doctor about any sort of medication you are using. This is required to prevent cross-reactions. Also, it’s a requirement that you take a skin sensitivity test to the ingredients of Anti-wrinkle injections. Other factors in which it should not be used include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation
  • Problems related to neuromuscular disorders
  • People with egg allergies


There is a need to suspend the use of some medications if you are using them, such as anti-inflammatories, aspirin etc. Usage of such drugs should be stopped 2 weeks before the procedure.

Read about how to prepare for Anti-Wrinkle Injections
The procedure of anti-wrinkle injections is quite easy and does not require any anaesthesia, as there is very little, if any, pain. The procedure is simple. The Botulinum toxin Type A solution is injected with a fine needle into the particular areas of the face where wrinkles are more prominent. For other purposes it is similarly injected into the targeted muscles. It only produces a minor discomfort. It treats frown lines, bunny lines and crow’s feet lines. It can however be given to various other locations on the body, not just the face.

Normally it takes 3 to 7 days for the desired effect to take place. The effect of a Anti-wrinkle injections injection lasts only 6 months and wrinkles begin to reappear gradually. You can again hide your wrinkles with a repeat of this Anti-wrinkle injections injection. With the passage of time wrinkles and fine lines reappear with less severity as this injection may lead to the muscle relaxation.

Risks and Complications

There are minor risks and complications associated with botulinum toxin Type A. These include pain at the site of injection, flu-like syndrome and headache. Bruising is the most commonly encountered risk, but it is not dangerous. It can easily be prevented if the doctor applies pressure at the site of injection. If it still takes place, it will resolve of its own accord, usually within a week. In very unusual cases eyelid drooping has been seen. Allergic reactions are seen in a few people after injection.

Other risks and complications associated with botulinum toxin Type A injection include discomfort, neck pain, dry mouth, dry eyes, double vision, tiredness, decreased eyesight, swelling of the eyelids, and blurred vision etc.

Though unlikely, sometimes a botulism toxin may spread, but in low doses, this toxicity is almost negligible. It however has found to affect the emotional feelings by reducing the spread of signals from the face to the brainstem centres and amygdale of a brain for the autonomic arousal. The cognition functions may also be affected if injections are given for the treatment of glabellar lines. But this again occurs very rarely.

Q. Does the Anti-wrinkle injections injection cause pain?

A. You will only feel a slight discomfort as the needle enters into the muscle and it is a bearable pain so people can easily tolerate it.

Q. What are the do’s and dont’s after the Anti-wrinkle injections procedure?

A. Avoidance of touching the area of injection is usually advised. Massaging is also not allowed immediately after injection. Don’t lie down and don’t exercise so the botulinum toxin Type A remains at its site and does not migrate to any other area.

Q. How long does Anti-wrinkle injections injection take to start to work?

A. Normally 3 to 7 days are required for Anti-wrinkle injections to become fully effective and provide the required effect. In some people however, it may take 2 weeks.

Q. What are the possible adverse effects of botulinum toxin Type A?

A. These are few and rarely occur, they include headache, dry mouth and pain. Allergic reactions can occur, the symptoms including redness, itching, dizziness and swelling.

Q. Who can perform the procedure?

A. It can be performed by the doctor who is trained as well as certified. In some instances a Registered Nurse, under the guidance of a doctor.

Q. Is treatment of botulinum toxin Type A successful for males and females?

A. Yes, it is absolutely effective for both males and females.

The Layt Clinic The latest injectable techniques with Brooke Francisco May 22, 2020 - Injectables have come a long way. Today we shed some light on the latest injectable techniques with Brooke Francisco. Once upon a time, women commanded “fill her up” when it came to injectables. Usually those charged with the job too often did just that. Unfortunately, the results were at best mixed, but all too often, the results looked overdone and unnatural or unattractive. Subtlety is Key Enter the experts, the medical professionals whose aim and techniques improve our looks greatly. They do this without using vast amounts of product. Instead, subtlety is now key when it comes to injectables. And the results can be dramatic – in a beautiful way – if you’re in well-trained and experienced hands.

qualified cosmetic injector Checklist to find a qualified cosmetic injector March 14, 2019 - Don’t you wish you had a checklist so that when you wanted to have injectables, you could make sure you’re having it done with someone who is qualified to do it? We all want to make sure we are in safe hands, and so far there are no government guidelines that we are aware of to keep the consumer as safe as possible. Did you know that Australians spend over $1billion on non or minimally invasive procedures every year? That’s a lot of us doing it, and a lot of it being done! We’ve all heard the horror stories of botched jobs and some more serious cases such as fillers being injected around the eyes and patients going blind. So, what should you look for in your practitioner when going to get an injectables treatment? We recently caught up with Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia (RCA) who shared with us some excellent advice as to what to look for, the questions to ask, and how to keep yourself as ‘safe’ as you possibly can. 1. Your Practitioner – Qualified Cosmetic Injector? Is your practitioner fully qualified and do they have sufficient experience in the procedure or treatment they are performing? RCA […]
Common Misconceptions about Anti-Wrinkle Injection Treatments Common Misconceptions about Anti-Wrinkle Injection Treatments February 20, 2019 - Anti-wrinkle injections are more popular than ever but a large percentage of women and men are being deterred from using them as an anti-ageing treatment because of some of the misconceptions about them. If you’re considering anti-wrinkle injections but are feeling unsure, this article will help clear a few things up. 5 Anti-Wrinkle Injection Treatment Misconceptions Treatments are really painful It’s only natural to be worried about pain when you’re considering a new treatment such as anti-wrinkle injections. However, the needles that are used are small and fine, which means pain is minimal. With this being said, everyone has a different pain threshold, so some may find the treatment slightly more uncomfortable than others. Basically, you can expect a slight pinching sensation that lasts a few seconds. Anti-wrinkle injections are dangerous because they’re toxic Anti-wrinkle injections have been used as an effective anti-ageing treatment for over 20 years and when they’re administered by a qualified doctor or CPCA-certified injector at a reputable clinic such as Academy Face and Body beauty clinic in Sydney, they’re completely safe. Anti-wrinkle injections contain a protein that is naturally produced by the body, causing the muscles of the face to relax temporarily. When these muscles […]
Eden Medispa New Year Revival – Which is YOUR Medispa? February 5, 2019 - I don’t know about any of you, but during the December/January period I overindulge. Food, alcohol, sun, family… all of these things are wonderful and I love them all, but it’s around this time of the year that I start feeling as though I well and truly need to start reigning it all back in a bit and get back into looking after myself. One of my favourite medispas is The Eden Medispa in Norwest – I visit them whenever I’m in Sydney. I chatted to Ashlee from Eden Medispa about what some of their more popular treatments are at this time of the year and which ones are going to give me that new year revival that I need. One of the reasons why Eden Medispa is so popular is not only because it’s headed up by an amazing plastic surgeon, Dr Mark Edinburg, but because they have some of the industry’s most advanced skin rejuvenation techniques using state of the art technology to help their patients get the best results. They are awesome at creating customised packages to suit each and every patient to help them enhance their own natural beauty, and their highly trained staff know what’s […]
injectables Anti-Wrinkle Injectables – What’s the difference between them and how do they work? January 29, 2019 - There are several different anti-wrinkle injectables brands on the market and we asked Dr Garry Cussell of Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, who offers all of them, to help us understand the difference between them and how they work. There are three main injectable brands – Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. All of them are approved toxins that contain the same active ingredient and work in the same way. Dr Cussell clarifies. “All three brands contain the same active protein. When injected into a muscle, this ingredient binds with and neutralises the nerve protein within the nerve ending at the junction of the nerve and muscle. Once neutralised, less electrical current passes from the nerve into that particular muscle. Thus, the muscle relaxes in certain spots and movement is reduced in the muscles that cause the skin to crease with certain facial expressions.” What’s the difference between Botox, Xeomin and Dysport? As mentioned above they all work in the same way, but as they’re made by different companies, they have subtle differences and slightly different ingredients and pricing. Botox and Xeomin have a higher concentration of the active ingredient than Dysport. Whilst you might need fewer units of one over the other, […]
A Basic Guide to How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work A Basic Guide to How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work January 16, 2019 - Even though nobody wants to look in the mirror and see new lines and wrinkles, they’re an inevitable part of growing older. A good skincare regime will also only take you so far and sometimes, a little extra help is required if you want to achieve a smoother appearance. Anti-Wrinkle Injections: A Brief Explanation To reduce the appearance of common lines and wrinkles and prevent them from forming in the future, anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking signals to the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. This means that when your face wants to frown or squint in the sun, your muscles will be too relaxed to do it. When these facial muscles are relaxed, it softens the lines across your face, providing you with a tighter, smoother appearance. After your treatment, you will be able to see a slight difference but will only be able to enjoy the full results of your injections a week to 10 days later. The results of your anti-wrinkle injections can last up to 4 months but top-up treatments will be required. You may also find that you require fewer doses after several treatments in a specialized medical & beauty facility such as one […]
Get Your Summer Skin Glow! Anti-wrinkle injections, fillers, chemicals peels, skin care… December 10, 2018 - You can’t undo years of bad habits and unhealthy lifestyle… or can you?! Most of us know that regular exercise, proper sleep, a good diet, getting stressed less, and various other lifestyle routines can make a huge difference to our appearance and health of our skin. But most of us aren’t perfect (I’m far from it!) and apart from a small percentage of us, we’ve all done things that probably haven’t helped the cause: too much sun, too much drinking, smoking, kids (need we say more?)… Dr Eddie Cheng and his team at AR Plastic Surgery in Brisbane are getting some amazing results with non-surgical treatments to help their patients look rejuvenated, refreshed and potentially years younger. I asked them what their favourite treatments going into the summer months are and which ones will get the best results. Anti-wrinkle treatments Dr Cheng says anti-wrinkle treatments are still one of the most popular and effective ways to remove fine lines and signs of ageing, however to get the desired effect Dr Cheng says it’s essential to go to a practitioner who knows what they’re doing. “Anti-wrinkle injections can soften the existing signs of ageing, and also prevent lines from getting worse. […]
A Facelift without a Facelift – Fillers and Injectables November 30, 2018 - Fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are an extremely popular way to contour, define and smooth out your face without having to go under the knife. When done right they can enhance and highlight your best features and get rid of those little signs that are threatening to betray your age. They can also enhance your features and look natural and beautiful when done right. Dr Bryan Mendelson’s Skin and Injecting Clinic in Melbourne is led by one of Australia’s most respected plastic surgeons so it makes sense that he only has the best injectors working in his non-surgical clinic. We had a chat to them about the beautiful results they get for their patients with their non-surgical treatments. Good Bone Structure – give it a helping hand with fillers Dr Mendelson says that a good bone structure is the key to a beautiful face. He says, “It is the key to many of the attributes we find most appealing, such as fuller cheekbones, a well proportioned brow and good jawline definition. Interestingly, a good bone structure also means a face will age more slowly – we all know people who have a lovely bone structure and who appear to age well. […]
Indulge and Rejuvenate at Luxe Clinic November 21, 2018 - As you know, we love discovering beautiful, quality clinics, especially when they are run by fully qualified, experienced and highly skilled plastic surgeons.

Botox for Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) October 5, 2018 - I’ve always been a grinder. I grind my teeth when I’m stressed, when I’m overtired, when I’m going through life changes, in fact I even grind my teeth when I don’t know it! For a lot of my life I’ve been grinding my teeth in my sleep and it even wakes me up. Most of the damage to my teeth has already been done (I have dead straight, flat line teeth that are nowhere near as big as they used to be!). Bruxism is the scientific term for teeth grinding, and it’s quite common. I know I’m not the only one out there, but it got to the point where it was causing other issues. I was getting headaches, and when working on something, I’d find myself clenching my jaw so much that my shoulders and neck muscles were starting to hurt. I’d be concentrating on a piece of editorial and then I’d realise that my jaw was clenched, and my shoulders were lifted. I was reading an article about Botox for migraines and discovered that Botox has been used regularly for many people suffering from migraines and – you got it – teeth grinding. Like, where have I been? […]
anti-wrinkle injections pricing Understanding the Pricing of Your Anti-Wrinkle Injections September 25, 2018 - When it comes to achieving a more radiant and youthful appearance, there are a plethora of cosmetic treatment options available, with anti-wrinkle injections being one of the most popular. As we age, we gradually start to lose fat and volume in our faces. Pair this with diet, facial expressions and regular sun exposure and you can start to see why fine lines and wrinkles become more common after the age of 30. Fortunately, anti-wrinkle injections can turn back the clock by smoothing out the lines and grooves that make us appear older than we really are. Understanding the cost of anti-wrinkle injections If you’ve started exploring the idea of wrinkle relaxers, you will have noticed that pricing does vary from clinic to clinic. There are a number of different factors that play a role in how these injectable treatments are priced and while there will always be an appropriate price range, there will never be an exact price that you should be keeping an eye out for. It should also be said that choosing a cosmetic clinic based on price alone is never the best approach to take. There are far more important aspects to pay attention to such as […]
Injectables – do you know what you’re injecting into your face? September 12, 2018 - Cosmetic Injectables are offered in just about every beauty clinic, surgeon’s office and medispa around the country. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are two of the most popular procedures for facial rejuvenation and anti-ageing and more and more people are giving them a go, many making them a part of their regular beauty routine. But do you know exactly what you’re getting injected into your face and body? What’s the difference between anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and the other injectables on the market? One of the first things to wrap your head around is that there are different types of injectables that do different things, ie. anti-wrinkle injections are different to dermal fillers and so on. We wrote a great article on exactly this earlier this year and we suggest you read it to know exactly what the different types of cosmetic injectables are, how they work and what the benefits and risks of each are. However, something else to keep in mind is that there are different grades or types of each of these injectables, with different ingredients and quality of products. So you want to know what you’re paying for – those cheap injections could be just that […]

Non-Surgical Treatments Complementing Surgical Procedure. July 18, 2018 - Gone are the days where plastic surgeons do surgical procedures without also offering non-surgical treatments in their clinic. It is well recognised that combining any surgical procedure with the right non-surgical treatments can enhance any results from a plastic surgery procedure. Dr Bryan Mendelson, one of Australia’s most experienced and highly respected Plastic surgeons, understands the benefits of offering patients non-surgical treatments in combination with aesthetic facial surgery. Dr Mendelson’s practice offers specialised non-surgical treatments performed by highly experienced clinicians and nurses and his Skin and Injecting Clinic. PSH chats to the practitioners at The Skin and Injecting Clinic (TSIC) to find out why it is important for patients to combine non-surgical treatments to enhance their surgical procedures. How do non-surgical procedures help with a plastic surgery procedure? There are various types of non-surgical treatments used in conjunction with surgical procedures. Whether it’s to prepare your skin in the lead up to your procedure, or to help soothe your skin, reduce scarring or promote faster healing after your procedure, or to help contour your face for an enhanced and optimal desirable final result. Healite II Healite is now known as one of the most popular non-surgical treatments to be used […]

Men in all sorts of industries, from customer facing jobs, the public eye, stressed executives can understand the benefits of […]

    I meet Dr, Jamieson years ago when she was working in Ascot in Brisbane, and I felt very comfortable with her.
    I would like to have some Botox and wondering about cost.
    I had in the past around eyes, forehead under eyebrow and I have had a small amount of filler in my top lips, but this was all quite a few years ago.
    Also hours you work as I live in Glasshouse Mountains but work in Caboolture, so getting to Maroochydore in normal business is difficult.

    Many thanks 🙂
