ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS
Anti Wrinkle Injections at Sydney and Australia-Wide Clinics
Anti wrinkle injections provide a highly effective method of smoothing and plumping skin, and are one of the most widely performed cosmetic treatments today. They work by blocking signals between the nerves and muscles, preventing muscles from contracting and forming lines on the surface of the skin. The result is fast, effective and impressive control of frown lines, wrinkles and fine lines. Anti wrinkle injections are not a permanent solution, and further treatments are required periodically to maintain the effect.
When choosing an injectable, it’s vital to select a physician experienced in anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections to ensure the best possible results. At Juv’ae we focus only on anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, which is why we are considered the experts in non surgical solutions.
The visible signs of every stress, every period of grief, every love lost and every disappointment can literally be erased, with our anti-wrinkle injection formulation. Start again with the outlook of an innocent, but a lifetime of lessons learned.
At Juvae, anti-wrinkle injections are performed with extreme precision by our fully medically-trained team with over 10 years’ experience. You get maximum wrinkle erasure, with minimal effect on your expression.

- What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
You would probably recognise our anti-wrinkle injection formulation by its popular US trade name. They alleviate wrinkles caused by habitual and uncontrollable contraction of some of the tiny muscles of the face, which wrinkle up the overlying skin. The anti-wrinkle injection substance used is a modified form of a naturally occurring substance which blocks the signals between your facial nerves and these superficial muscles, which ultimately allows the skin to relax.
- How are anti-wrinkle injections different?
The principle behind these anti-wrinkle injections is quite different to that behind other wrinkle reduction treatments. Both fraxel laser treatment and dermal fillers work on an ultimately mechanical basis - that of lifting and filling in facial volume in order to fill out wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections work on a biological basis; blocking the signal from the brain which tells your wrinkle-causing muscles to contract.
- What are the benefits?
Anti-wrinkle injections are particularly effective in treating a specific type of wrinkle. If you have deep frown lines or nasolabial folds, anti-wrinkle injections may produce best results for you. At The Clinic, we have access to a wide range of different anti-wrinkle technology, and in consultation with you, will use these anti-wrinkle injections in conjunction with a complete treatment plan for your face and body.
- What are the risks?
Due to the biological mechanism of action, anti-wrinkle injections are more conducive to side effects. Common side effects include:
- Temporary bruising from the injection itself
- Mild flu-like symptoms
- Eyelid droop
- Eye twitching
- Facial pain
- Weakness in surrounding muscles
- How many anti-wrinkle injections will I need?
You'll need a single treatment every 4 months. There is no cumulative effect with anti-wrinkle injections. Repeated treatments will depend on the individual and our medical team will be able to advise the best time to make your next appointment.
- What happens during anti-wrinkle injections?
The usual procedure for anti-wrinkle injections is:
- You'll speak with the doctor about your background and medical history at your initial consultation
- Our doctors and nurses will formulate a treatment plan for your wrinkles, which may include other therapies in addition to the injections, if appropriate
- The doctor will map out the area to be treated by examining your ability to move certain facial muscles
- A large number of small injections is made in an area targeted to the muscles which are causing your wrinkles, each to a specific depth and with a specific volume of fluid
- Is it painful?
Anti-wrinkle injections are administered using a very fine needle and a very small amount of liquid. Many people say they feel like a mosquito bite. Without local anesthesia, we would rate the pain of anti-wrinkle injections for hyperhidrosis treatment at around 0.5/10.
- What should I expect after treatment?
You can expect the full effect of your anti-wrinkle injections to be apparent after 3-7 days, and for the effect to last approximately 3-4 months.
- How long do results last?
Anti-wrinkle injections may last anywhere from three to four months. Touch-up sessions will be required at regular increments to maintain results.
- How many injections will I need?
The number of anti-wrinkle injections varies, based on the depth of the wrinkles and the size of the treatment area.
- What does the treatment involve?
Anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectables are injected directly into the facial muscles using a very fine needle. A topical anaesthetic may be applied to the skin prior to the injections for patient comfort. Injections take just a few minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas to be treated.
