anti-wrinkle treatments

what are anti-wrinkle treatments?

These treatments are the foundation of cosmetic injectables. They are most commonly used to improve wrinkles of the forehead, frown area and the so called 'crow's feet' around the eyes.

Clinics in Australia aren't legally allowed to advertise the brand names of any medicines so we tend to call the treatments 'anti-wrinkle injections'. Treatments are quick, comfortable to perform and the results last for 2-4 months.

how are anti-wrinkle treatments performed?

Anti-wrinkle treatments involve using an injectable product to soften the wrinkles of the face. They work by temporarily relaxing the muscles of facial expression. By softening your wrinkles, you can achieve a more youthful, relaxed and refreshed appearance with just a few quick injections.

'Freezing' the face was a popular look back in the early 2000's when treatments first became available - but the results were very unnatural and too obvious. Dr Jake's anti-wrinkle treatments are tailored on a patient by patient basis to achieve stunning and yet often subtle outcomes. It's now much more popular to want a more natural look, but if you want to look 'done' that's absolutely fine too.

how much do anti-wrinkle treatments cost & what are units?

Most commonly, anti-wrinkle treatments are priced per 'unit' - just think of this as the quantity of product used. This can be a confusing concept, especially for newbies to injectables. You also need to be aware that different  brands of anti-wrinkle treatment come in different units so it can get very tricky to try and compare different brands or clinics.

 

To make things as easy as possible for you, see below for a rough guide of how many units you might need per area of the face. Obviously it will vary quite widely depending on your features and the look you want, so it's always best to book in for a consult.
