Anti-wrinkle injections serve as a preventative measure to mitigate the appearance of expression lines resulting from facial movements. These injections are commonly used to address the natural progression of ageing, wherein the skin undergoes thinning and a reduction in elastin.  Over time, the ageing process contributes to the development of wrinkles, creases, and lines on the skin. With advancing age and repetitive muscle movements, these lines become more pronounced, even in a relaxed state. Anti-wrinkle injections are utilised to help diminish and soften these visible lines and wrinkles on the skin.

As a popular treatment in Australia, Anti-Wrinkle Injections offer an effective approach to combat ageing signs by minimising muscle movement and the subsequent formation of wrinkles. Our team of professionals takes into account your desired outcome and the unique structure of your facial muscles to administer this treatment, targeting specific areas for a reduction in lines. Moreover, these injections can be beneficial in addressing medical concerns such as excessive sweating, migraines, teeth grinding, and facial slimming, catering to a comprehensive range of individual needs.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the transmitting messages between nerve and muscle cells, resulting in muscle cells being unable to contract. With the reduction of muscle contraction, the appearance of existing wrinkles are decreased and the formation of new ones are prevented.

At Dr Fresh, we always strive for results which work in harmony with your facial features. Our highly skilled practitioners are adept at delivering beautiful results with minimal discomfort using anti-wrinkle injections.

Crow’s Feet

Lines around the eyes are commonly referred to as crow’s feet. They often form as small creases when you smile and eventually spread down to the cheek area. 

Frown Lines

Frown lines or the dreaded number ‘’11’ between the eyebrows can often make you look mad or stressed if they are present at rest. 

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines result from overactivity of the ‘frontalis’ muscle, which works to elevate the eyebrow and is one of the most commonly used muscles of facial expression. 

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are those creases that form when you scrunch up your nose

Perioral Lines/Smokers Lines

Lines around the upper lip are quite common, especially once a woman reaches menopause. They are often due to smoking (constant pursing of the lips) however can occur in people who have never smoked

What should I know before getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Prior to undergoing Anti-Wrinkle Injections for frown lines, a comprehensive consultation is crucial. Each individual's facial features are unique and will inform their personalised treatment plan. Proper aftercare is essential to ensure optimal results, which may require multiple appointments. While the injection process is brief, it is important to allow time for the injection to take effect before observing the desired outcome.

To maximise the effectiveness of the injections, we recommend avoiding activities that may cause the injection to spread to other areas of the body, such as exercise, touching the face, wearing makeup, or air travel. Dr Fresh offers consultations tailored to your specific needs, as well as ongoing support to ensure a comfortable and satisfying experience with our Cosmetic Injectables.

Do Anti-Wrinkle Forehead Injections really fix frown line issues?

We often receive inquiries from our valued clients regarding the effectiveness of Anti-Wrinkle Injections in treating frown lines. We are delighted to inform you that Anti-Wrinkle Injections target frown line-related problems and can indeed provide an effective solution.

Frown lines are typically caused by the repetitive movements of the facial muscles, often resulting from facial expressions like frowning or squinting. Our Anti-Wrinkle Forehead Injections work by temporarily relaxing these muscles, which softens the lines and reduces their visibility, providing a more youthful and refreshed look.
