What are anti-wrinkle treatments for?

These treatments are the bread and butter of cosmetic injectables. They are most commonly used to improve the wrinkles of the frown area (the so-called '11' lines), the forehead area (the lines when we raise our eyebrows) and the 'crow's feet' areas (the lines around the eyes).  By law in Australia, we aren't allowed to advertise the brand names of any medicines, including the brand of any injectable products. So you'll usually see these types of treatments generically referred to as 'anti-wrinkle injections'. Dr Jake only uses the Allergan brand of anti-wrinkle treatment and is a national & international trainer using this product.

How are anti-wrinkle treatments done?

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 are anti-wrinkle treatments priced?

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 those new to injectables. You also need to be aware that different brands of anti-wrinkle treatment come in different units so it can be difficult to compare different brands or clinics. This is why you need to have a consultation first to understand what your needs are, how strong your muscles and your particular pattern of lines.

Who is allowed to provide anti-wrinkle treatments?

In Australia, only a doctor, dentist or registered nurse under the supervision of a medical doctor may inject muscle relaxants and most dermal fillers. For a safe treatment and optimum results, only a fully trained, highly experienced practitioner should administer cosmetic injections.

When should I start getting anti-wrinkle treatments?

Most patients start getting anti-Wrinkle injections in their late 20s or early 30's. This ensures that lines don't have a chance to form and become static (permanent). All patients are treated in a bespoke manner and a consultation is needed to assess your unique features. But patients under the age of 23 will usually not be offered anti-wrinkle treatments for the upper face.​

Apart from for wrinkles, can anti-wrinkle 
treatments be used for anything else?
