There’s just no way of avoiding wrinkles. And it’s not just down to age, either. Habitual facial expressions, sun damage, smoking and poor hydration all add extra ‘character’ lines in the mirror, making us look tired, older, stressed or angry. To alleviate the damage, we can inject a natural, purified protein that relaxes the muscles causing your wrinkles. Our treatment has been used in the medical profession for over 40 years; it is very safe, universally accepted and equally effective for women and men.
Anti-wrinkle treatment can make you look less tired, more youthful and relaxed. We most commonly use it to eliminate the frown lines between your eyebrows, creases around your eyes (crow’s-feet) and the horizontal lines on your forehead. We also use it as part of our brow shaping and it’s an excellent addition to a facial rejuvenation program, working well with skin resurfacing and intradermal fillers.
The vertical lines appearing between your eyebrows when you frown can become visible even when your face is at rest, making you look permanently angry, tired or stressed.
Radiating from the corner of our eyes, these are inevitably caused by smiling, squinting and other facial expressions.
Forehead lines can slowly change from a momentary expression to a prominent feature and, eventually, a permanent fixture.
Our injectable treatments can reduce a square jaw, clenching and even tone down a gummy smile. We can even treat chins, stop your smile from pulling down and even decrease the lines that form around your mouth.
Apart from the cosmetic results, the muscle-relaxing effect of the protein we use is also beneficial for patients with uncontrolled muscle spasms and twitches of the face (as occur with certain neurological disorders), as well as migraine sufferers. It can even reduce excessive sweating of the armpits and treat the jaw muscles that can be responsible for us grinding our teeth.
We eliminate wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscle with a series of tiny injections. The procedure only takes a few minutes to perform, with minimal discomfort and is very well tolerated. Results can last up to six months.
To avoid problems in the first place, the only people who provide this treatment at Adelaide Plastic Surgery are thoroughly trained and experienced practitioners. We always fully explain any possible complications before we proceed and we are here to support you after the treatment.
Most of our patients return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
