Anti-wrinkle treatment works by injecting a muscle relaxant into the problem area, blocking nerve signals and reducing muscular contraction. The result is a perfectly smooth, refreshed and youthful appearance. In some cases, it can take up to 3 days before you start to notice an effect and up to 10 days to develop fully. Results will last 3-4 months, on average. Anti-wrinkle injections also work well with dermal filler to restore lost volume in the face.
How many injections do I need? Does 50 units mean 50 injections?
No, 50 units does not mean 50 injections. Generally, at each injection site, 3 units are injected. This means for an area like the Crow’s feet, which requires approx. 12 units each side, there will be 4 injection sites, with 3 units injected at each site.
Upon your consultation, the doctor or registered nurse will explain to you how many units will be required to address your concerns.
How much does it cost?
We charge $12 per unit (including GST). The number of units you require depend upon the area being treated. Below is a guide to estimate how many units you may need. These estimates apply to women – men often need 1.5 times as many units to achieve the same effect.
Crow’s Feet: 6-12 units each side
Frown (brow lines): 15-25 units
Forehead lines: 5-15 units
Tooth grinding: 20-35 units each side
Gummy smile: 2 units each side
Please note, the above units are a guide only. The registered nurse or doctor will determine the best treatment for you during your consultation.
Pre-Treatment Care before anti-wrinkle injections:
Avoid alcohol for 24 hours prior to treatment this may increase chance of bruising.
Avoid aspirin, vitamin E, fish oil or any other blood thinning medication at least 72 hours prior to treatment. If you are taking blood thinning medication please let our doctor or registered nurse know during your consultation.
Avoid hot showers, exertion such as going to the gym or for a run, or any activity which will cause you to retain heat in your body directly before the treatment.
