What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections comprise a purified protein complex that once administered, causes the facial muscles to relax and prevent them from contracting. When injected, this protein blocks certain nerve signals within the face to relax the muscles and soften facial lines.
What can anti-wrinkle injections treat?
Our anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney can be used to tackle signs of ageing in the following areas:
- Crow’s feet – The fine lines around the outer eyes
- Glabella – The area between the eyes
- Forehead – To tackle those dreaded wrinkles
- Nose – Our treatments can elicit wrinkle reduction on the nose (bunny lines)
- Jawline – An anti-wrinkle injection can be used to relax the jaw muscles, producing a fine contour and reducing the effects of teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Neck – To rid yourselves of neck wrinkles
What are the benefits of having anti-wrinkle injections?
Our anti-wrinkle treatments in Sydney are equipped with a vast array of benefits including a reduction in frown lines, fine lines, and expression lines. The numerous benefits include:
- No need to go under the scalpel – That’s right. Our treatment is minimally invasive, meaning that it can often be performed in the comfort of your doctor’s office. This not only reduces risk but speeds up your recovery time and reduces costs when compared to surgical treatments.
- No pain – When administered by a professional such as ourselves, these fine needles are quickly inserted giving you only the feeling of a pinprick before treatment is complete.
- Preventative measure – Cosmetic injectable treatments in the form of anti-wrinkle injections can be used to prevent the signs of ageing from forming by stopping contraction. This means that repeated muscle movement becomes limited, reducing the formation of frown lines, forehead lines, and more.
- Speedy recovery – Unlike their surgical counterpart, this non-invasive anti-wrinkle injection treatment takes only a few minutes, meaning that you can return to work as soon as your procedure is done.
- Even speedier results – Instead of waiting months for the full effects of your facelift, anti-wrinkle injections will begin to work at about day 5 with full effect after approximately 10 days.
Am I a good candidate for anti-wrinkle injection treatments?
A good candidate for anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney is typically someone who is in good overall health, has realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure, and wishes to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. A consultation with one of our qualified skin professionals is the best way to determine if anti-wrinkle injections are suitable for you.
How are anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney carried out at Shire Aesthetics?
If you decide to have your anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney with us at Shire Aesthetics, this is what you can expect:
Your first consultation with our cosmetic physician entails a facial assessment and a thorough medical history. We need to ensure that you are not taking any medications or have any underlying conditions that may be contraindicated with this procedure.
Once satisfied, your individual treatment plan will be discussed in detail and you will be given a date for the procedure (if not as soon as possible depending on availability).
On the day of treatment, you will be welcomed in by our friendly staff before being escorted to your doctor’s office. Here we will go over the potential side effects and discomforts you may experience and describe how the process will work.
The anti-wrinkle injections are then administered, and you should notice a response as soon as possible. You will then be sent home with a list of postprocedure instructions to follow to ensure recovery is quick and your results remain unaffected.
Results and Recovery
Treatment may not always eradicate the lines, as this is dependent on the condition of the skin and the depth of the lines at the time of the treatment. Facial expression is not affected – in other words, a “frozen” look is not the end result with careful pre-treatment assessment and injection placement. Untreated muscles are not affected.
The desired clinical effect can be seen from 3 to 7 days post-treatment. In some individuals, the full effect may be delayed for up to 2 weeks. The clinical effect usually lasts from 3 to 4 months although most patients will notice the benefits begin to lessen from about 2.5 months. With regular use i.e. treatment every three months, most patients notice the clinical effects lasting for extended periods of time.
Treatment is simple and quick and is often described as a “lunchtime” procedure.

Anti-wrinkle injections typically maintain their effect for 3 to 6 months. Over time, facial muscles gradually return to their normal activity, and lines may reappear. Regular treatments can help maintain a smooth appearance and may potentially have longer-lasting effects with subsequent sessions.
Anti-wrinkle injections are generally sought by individuals in their late 20s to early 30s, often as a preventative measure against frown lines and expression lines. However, the appropriate age varies based on individual needs, goals, and facial anatomy.
You can wash your face as soon as you want, however, make sure the water is NOT hot and you do not rub your face aggressively when doing so. Avoiding vigorous scrubbing or massage for 24 hours can help ensure the product remains in the targeted facial muscles.
Make-up application should be avoided for at least 4 hours post-treatment to reduce the risk of infection and allow the treatment sites to settle. After this period, make-up can be applied gently, avoiding excessive pressure on the treated areas.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding due to a lack of research on the effects.
Anti-wrinkle injections can only be given to those under the age of 18 if they have a medical reason for doing so, such as excessive sweating and teeth grinding.
Yes, anti-wrinkle injection treatments are specifically designed to target dynamic wrinkles, which are formed by repetitive facial expressions. By relaxing the underlying facial muscles, these injections smooth the skin, reducing the appearance of these wrinkles.
When administered by a qualified professional, anti-wrinkle injections are considered safe. However, they are not recommended for individuals who suffer from neuromuscular conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease or Myasthenia Gravis. Caution must be exercised in patients taking heart medications for rhythm abnormalities such as Quinidine and some antibiotics such as Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Clindamycin, and Lincomycin.
Absolutely, combining anti-wrinkle injections with dermal filler treatments is a common practice to address both dynamic and static wrinkles, offering a more comprehensive anti-ageing approach for a youthful appearance.
Transient side effects such as bruising and redness at the injection site may occur. First-time users may experience a sensation of headache for a day or two. Transient muscle twitches have been reported. Asymmetry of the outcome can be corrected by additional treatment. The rare occurrence of droopy eyelids can be overcome by careful placement and the avoidance of massaging the treated area.
Yes, the anti-wrinkle product is not only for facial aesthetics; it also has medical applications, such as treating hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. By blocking the nerves that stimulate sweat glands, particularly in areas like the underarms, hands, and feet, anti-wrinkle injections can significantly reduce sweating.
