Fine Lines, Wrinkles FAQs
The substance used in the form of a muscle relaxant in Anti-Wrinkle Injections is a naturally occurring purified protein. It is not a chemical made by man or snake venom. In Australia, this is a schedule-4 drug, for which the prescription can only be given by a medical doctor. Due to TGA restrictions, we are not able to mention the name of the drug.
Anti-wrinkle Injections work by hindering the transmission of signals between the nerves and the injected muscles. This brings about a temporary relaxation to the muscles, so they do not contract with too much force. This gives the overlying skin an opportunity to rest and repair itself so that the wrinkles become less obvious or vanish completely. The use of Anti-Wrinkle Injections not only lessens existing lines and wrinkles but also averts future ones from coming up.
Anti-wrinkle Injections are extremely effective in the areas given below:
- Frown lines.
- Crows’ feet.
- Forehead lines.
- Gummy smile.
- Bunny lines.
- Chin crease (Mentalis muscle).
- Excess Sweating.
- Neckbands (Platysma muscle).

The safety of Anti-Wrinkle Injections is excellent. Besides the extremely rare risk of an allergic reaction, there are no major side effects related to Anti-wrinkle injection treatment.
We prefer the usage of topical numbing cream, ice, and a special vibration anesthesia device for all facial injection procedures. This lessens any anxiety or discomfort related to this treatment. We often find that all new patients are pleasantly astonished by the injection techniques that do not cause any pain.
Generally, there are minimum side effects related to Anti-Wrinkle Injections and most of them are impermanent. Minor swelling and redness at the injection site usually go away after the first few minutes. Some people may experience mild, short-term bruising which is easily camouflaged with makeup. Slight headache following the treatment has also been reported, which can be treated using oral painkillers like panadol.
In rare cases, the Anti-Wrinkle Injection medication can spread beyond the desired muscle when injected in the frown region and may lead to temporary drooping of the upper eyelid. This is extremely rare when the treatment is performed by an experienced injector and is treatable with topical eye drops in most cases. It generally resolves within a few weeks.
The initial consultation may need between 15–20 minutes. After consent is obtained, the procedure itself requires approximately 5 to 10 minutes only. A follow-up appointment is only needed after 2 weeks if the treatment has not shown results properly. This is extremely rare.
Most clients return to work or regular activities immediately after the treatment. It is recommended that you refrain from strenuous exercise, heavy lifting and massaging of the injected area for 24 hours.
The treatment will start to take effect generally within two to three days. The maximum effect is usually observed in 7–14 days.
The degree of improvement differs from person to person, but the results last for 3-4 months in most cases. It is recommended to repeat the treatment when movement in the area begins to return.
The aim of Anti-wrinkle treatment is to provide a refreshed look and not to look “frozen” or “stunned”. When the treatment is performed by a good injecting doctor, the results look natural with appropriate facial expressions.
To minimize the possibility of bruising, it is best to avert the intake of anti-inflammatory medication such as aspirin and Nurofen (Ibuprofen), fish oil, green tea, garlic, ginkgo and other herbal products that may lead to thinning of the blood. These should be stopped at least a week before your planned treatment date.
