Say "goodbye" to those lines...
Our cosmetic injectors in Cairns use Botox to relax the muscles that are causing facial lines and wrinkles.
Whilst anti-wrinkle injections are frequently used around the eyes and forehead, they can also be used for brow lifts, to minimise lines around the mouth, nose and to smooth the chin.
Forehead lines are the horizontal wrinkles that form on your forehead when you raise your eyebrows. These lines are often the first visible sign of ageing and can give you a worried appearance.
These lines can be reduced using anti-wrinkle injections which smooth the forehead so the lines are completely smoothed out or softened. The result will depend on your desired look.
Sometimes dermal fillers are used in combination if the lines are deeply etched. This will be discussed during your consultation.
Crow’s feet, also known as smile lines, are the lines that form at the corners of your eyes. These lines become etched over time and are caused by repeated muscle movement, sun damage and general ageing of the skin.
Almost everyone develops crow’s feet and some people feel they have earnt them, however, if you feel that they are making you look older or tired, anti-wrinkle injections can soften the lines and rejuvenate the eye area, giving you a brighter, more youthful appearance.
Sometimes a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are required to achieve the desired result. As every person and their concerns are different, we will discuss your desired outcome during your consultation and ensure that you know exactly what to expect.
Frown lines are the vertical lines between your eyebrows. These lines can become deep creases over time, making you look angry, grumpy or sad, when you actually don’t feel that way.
If you’re tired of people commenting that you look fed up or annoyed, even when you’re not, treating this area may be right for you.
Depending on the severity of the lines, sometimes dermal fillers are used in combination with anti-wrinkle injections if the furrows are deeply etched. This will be discussed during your consultation.
These lines are located near the top of your nose and are caused when you scrunch up your nose while laughing or smiling. Over time they can become permanent lines.
Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce the appearance of these lines and prevent permanent lines forming in this area.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to reduce a wide lower face which gives the appearance of a square jaw. If you are looking for more of a heart shaped face or aiming to achieve a slender jawline, this could be a treatment to consider.
This treatment also gives relief from head and facial pain caused by jaw clenching which for some people, is debilitating.
Do you feel that your brow has lowered over the years, or do you envy women who have that lovely arched brow?
The brow drops as we age for several reasons. Loss of volume in the temporal area, laxity of the skin in the upper brow and general ageing are several causes as our bodies change. It happens to most people but the good news is, it can be adjusted through non-invasive methods.
A combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can raise the brow and open your eyes leaving you looking more refreshed and youthful.
Sometimes anti-wrinkle injections alone can be used to achieve an arched brow and open the eyes. If you’re considering a surgical brow lift, have a chat with us today to see if anti-wrinkle injections could be the solution for you.
If you are concerned about showing excessive gums when you smile, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile in most cases. By targeting the muscles near the nose to relax them, the amount of gum visible when you smile, will be reduced and appear more balanced which in turn, will make you less self-conscious and confident.
This is a quick and comfortable procedure which lasts around four months.
A down-turned mouth can make you look sad when you don’t feel that way. This can be caused by overactive muscles in the lower face and loss of elasticity in your skin as you age.
Muscle relaxants can lift the corners of your mouth and can be used in combination with dermal fillers to treat this area if marionette lines (the downward creases which form from the corners of your mouth and run down towards your chin) have become apparent.
Facial asymmetry caused by Bell’s palsy, facial trauma or surgical scars can be improved using a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Faces in general, aren’t symmetrical – that’s not how nature made them but for some people, there is more obvious and pronounced asymmetry.
Whether it’s from trauma or congenital, injectables can improve the appearance of asymmetry. During your consultation, we’ll discuss options and outcomes so you can make a decision that’s right for you.
Several conditions cause the neck to appear aged. Sun damage can cause a combination of skin conditions. Thickened, pigmented, crepey, reddened or lax skin.
The large band of muscle in the neck begins to tighten as we age and form vertical lines and cords which cause the neck to sag and drag down the jowl area.
A combination of treatments can reduce the appearance of an ageing neck.
IPL can reduce the effect of sun damage, anti-wrinkle injections can soften the platysmal bands and the skin can be tightened using Infini RF.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide free consultations?
Yes. Prior to your treatment, you will receive a comprehensive consultation, ensuring your anti wrinkle treatment is tailored to suit your particular concerns. This enables us to recommend the best solution and also, gives you a realistic idea of the expected outcome, how long it will last and the opportunity to ask any specific questions, particularly if you’ve never had an anti-wrinkle cosmetic procedure before.
Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?
The sensations are more like a series of short ‘pin pricks’ and usually no anaesthetic is necessary. Ice can be used to numb the area and improve comfort whilst you undergo your cosmetic treatment. We all have different pain thresholds, and some areas can be more uncomfortable than others.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections target repeated muscle contractions such as frowning or squinting which are the underlying cause of frown lines and crow’s feet. We inject these muscles to temporarily reduce the muscle activity. After treatment, you will notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet and frown lines.
Will anti-wrinkle injections make me look like I’ve had work done?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a technique-sensitive treatment, meaning you should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone well trained and experienced in facial anatomy. It is important to discuss the results you wish to achieve with your clinician at your consultation, so we can help you achieve your desired outcome.
How long does a treatment take?
Your clinician will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment for you. The actual injection process takes about 10-20 minutes, depending on what you’re having done.
When will I see the results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, but the full effects take about two weeks. Results should last up to four months but that does vary from person to person.
How long is the recovery time after treatment?
After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime but we may give you specific after care instructions to aid recovery and results.
What are the common side effects?
Approximately 3% of patients can experience eyelid drooping according to frown line studies, while 1% can experience eyelid swelling. Other possible side effects include dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, headache, tiredness, neck pain, blurred vision, dry eyes and allergic reaction. We will discuss this in detail during your consultation and answer any questions you may have.
What are dynamic lines?
Muscles cause facial lines and wrinkles. These lines are called dynamic lines.
Over time your dynamic lines become permanently visible forming static lines.
If you are looking for anti wrinkle injections in Cairns, we can help prevent static lines from occurring. By relaxing these muscles, you can achieve a fresh and more youthful appearance.
Does Medicare cover anti-wrinkle treatments?
Consultations and treatments for cosmetic injectables are not eligible for medicare rebates. Botox can be used therapeutically for facial tics, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating. Consulting with your doctor for medical treatments is important.
Can men use anti-wrinkle injections?
It’s a common misconception that anti-wrinkle injections are only for women. However, many men also find these wrinkle-reduction treatments beneficial. In fact, we have a considerable number of male patients who frequently request dermal filler or botox.
They usually opt for injections on their forehead, between their brows, or other parts of their face that they believe show signs of ageing.
