Anti Wrinkle Injections – Adelaide
Many facial lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet and worry lines are caused by the repeated contraction of tiny muscles that lie just under your skin. These types of facial lines are called dynamic lines.
Anti-wrinkle injections (which are also called muscle relaxant injections) are changing the way that dynamic lines are treated, because they actually get to the cause of the problem.
During treatment, a specialised substance is injected into the small facial muscles that lie underneath your lines. This relaxes the muscles and stops them from contracting, which smoothes the lines and can prevent them from getting worse over time.
Anti-wrinkle injections use a tiny needle, so there is no need for a local anaesthetic.
Within four to seven days, you’ll see the full results of treatment with smoother, younger-looking skin. Results usually last three to four months, and tend to last longer after you’ve had more than one treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions About Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Q: How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
The ingredient in anti-wrinkle injections relaxes muscles. After treatment, the skin immediately above these muscles will look smoother. It will take approximately four to seven days to see the full effects of treatment.
Anti-wrinkle injections only work on the specific areas that you have had injected, making the treatment very precise. These injections will only affect the muscle’s ability to contract. It will not make you numb or produce any strange feelings.
Q: What types of lines are suitable for anti-wrinkle injections?
At your first consultation, Dr Kerry will examine your skin to determine if anti-wrinkle injections are the most suitable treatment for you. Anti-wrinkle injections are most effective for dynamic lines caused by muscles that have no other useful action.
Some of the dynamic lines that can be successfully treated with anti-wrinkle injections include:
- vertical frown lines between eyebrows.
- crow’s feet at the side of eyes.
- horizontal surprise lines on your upper forehead.
Wrinkles caused by sun damage will respond better to different forms of treatment such as dermal fillers, medical microdermabrasion, laser skin rejuvenation, surgical dermabrasion or Danné skin rejuvenation. After talking to Dr Kerry, you may decide that a combination of different treatments will give you the best results.
Q: How are anti-wrinkle treatments performed?
Treatment with anti-wrinkle injections is simple and quick. Dr Kerry uses a micro-needle to inject very small amounts of the product in several areas around your lines.
Because we use such a small needle and only inject tiny amounts of the substance, you don’t need any local anaesthetic or sedation. Most clients say the injections feel a little like ant bites.
Q: What happens after anti-wrinkle treatments?
You can go back to work and your normal activities straight after treatment. There are a few special precautions you need to take to get the best results from your injections. Dr Kerry will give you a clear set of printed instructions to follow after your treatment.
You may develop some very light bruising where you had the injections. This will fade quickly and can be easily covered with make-up.
Anti-wrinkle injections occasionally cause temporary minor side effects in some people. Dr Kerry will discuss these with you at your first consultation.
Q: When can I expect to see results?
It usually takes four to seven days to see the results of the injections. If dynamic wrinkles were prematurely aging your face, your skin will look fresher, younger and more relaxed after treatment.
The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually last three to four months, so you will need to have treatments two or three times a year to maintain the results.
The results appear to last longer after you have had one or more treatments, meaning you may gradually need less frequent treatments to achieve the same result.

I was very pleased with the results. My procedure was quick and relatively painless. The doctor was very professional and reassuring, and his staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The cost was as expected for a plastic surgeon, I could have gone elsewhere for a lower cost, but chose to pay for expertise and experience.*KimSkin Tag Removal
My first appointment was for an assessment . The Dr was great and filled me in on every aspect of what to expect from the operation. Definitely worth going to if considering surgery. I’ve booked in for surgery in April. The receptionist was lovely and the Dr was forthright re what to expect before and after surgery. Overall a good and reassuring atmosphere*Maxine Eyelid Surgery
