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 they use so we call the treatments 'anti-wrinkle injections' for reference. Treatments are quick, comfortable to perform and the results last for 2-4 months on average.
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 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!
anti-wrinkle treatment prices and units
Traditionally, 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 tricky to compare different brands.
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.
20 - 30 units
8 - 20u
crow's feet lines
8 - 15u/side
We can also treat other areas of the lower face (so called 'off label' treatments) to soften other lines and wrinkles:
