We offer expertly administered anti-ageing treatments that will leave you with youthful, glowing skin.
Getting Rid of Wrinkles
Wrinkles occur in the skin as a result of ageing, sun damage, smoking, movement and gravity, and are often caused by contraction of the underlying facial muscles used during facial expression. Over time, these lines become ingrained in the skin, and deepen, even when the facial muscles are relaxed.
The good news is that these wrinkles and lines can be treated with subtle and highly effective anti-wrinkle injections in Melbourne, to produce natural results, lasting up to 3–4 months.

How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers Work?
Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers work by targeting the three main types of wrinkles and addressing their causes:
These lines are caused by movement, typically whilst we talk and use facial expressions. Anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective for these types of wrinkles/lines.
Static lines are visible when your face is relaxed, and these may have developed over time. Anti-wrinkle treatments target the muscle movement, to prevent further creasing of the skin, ultimately softening these lines. For further effect dermal fillers may also be appropriate to delicately fill in the depressions, which may not be erased by the anti-wrinkle treatments, particularly if the lines have been present for many years.
Folds are deep depressions in the skin, and a good example is the Nasolabial fold, from the nose running to the corner of the mouth. As we age we lose fat, typically in the cheeks, and this loss of volume, together with gravity, leads to a folding in the skin.
Dermal fillers are injected deeply into the area and will soften and fill-in this fold, making it less obvious.
Wrinkles are a natural part of ageing, but there’s no reason not to give yourself a confidence boost with anti-ageing treatments. Everyone should be able to feel good in their skin.
Wrinkles fall into two categories, fine surface lines (caused by ultraviolet light), and deep furrows (caused by muscle contractions from facial expressions). Facial wrinkle treatments are generally much more effective for fine lines. Deeper creases may require more aggressive techniques.
While some of the factors causing wrinkles are outside of your control, there are some preventative measures you can take to help delay and minimise the early appearance of wrinkles. These include minimising sun exposure, not smoking and further anti-ageing treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
Anti-wrinkle treatments can be done to revitalise your appearance. By softening fine lines and wrinkles, it gives you a more youthful appearance. Facial wrinkle treatments can be an effective preventive option for women in their mid-thirties and younger, or women in the late forties and over to target sagging skin and wrinkles.

Benefits of anti-wrinkle treatments
Anti-wrinkle treatments provide numerous benefits for those wanting smoother skin. Just remember, for the best results, it’s important to receive wrinkle treatments in Melbourne from a qualified professional.
Facial wrinkle treatments are often used to prevent future deep line formation. By relaxing the muscles, anti-wrinkle injections reduce wrinkles and can prevent future lines from forming or deepening.
Some patients may choose to start treatments from their early to mid-thirties, depending on any signs of ageing they experience.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be done as a quick treatment that does not require any surgery. This helps minimise personal risk, recovery time and cost.
Facial wrinkle treatments can be a good option for those who don’t require a full face lift, but who want to reduce the appearance of expression lines such as frown lines, smile lines or crows feet.
When administered by an experienced professional, injections are quick with minimal discomfort. They are administered precisely using an extremely fine needle, so you feel little more than a pinprick.
Topical anaesthetic can be applied to numb the area and decrease comfort. Ask your doctor for this option if it will make you feel more comfortable.
Quick results & recovery
A key benefit of anti-wrinkle treatment is that you should see results quickly, with a younger looking appearance in a few days.
The procedure itself does not take very long and no downtime is required, so you can return to work straight after the treatment. As it is a non-invasive procedure, you won’t have to worry about severe swelling or bruising.
For women, you are also able to apply make-up straight onto your skin without worrying about interfering with the treatment.
Effects are semi-permanent
One of the benefits of this being a semi-permanent treatment is that it gives you more control over the treatment and the outcome, giving you more natural looking results. There is less chance of you coming out with a severe outcome that you’re unhappy with (such as ‘frozen face’).
If you find you’ve had too much or too little injected, the results can be easily corrected to ensure you’re happy with the outcome.
While not permanent, the results of anti-wrinkle treatment can last up to four months.
