Anti-wrinkle Injections

Safe, subtle treatments to minimise the appearance of lines & wrinkles.

Natural-looking results to make you look fresh, not frozen.

As we age, constant facial muscle contractions cause superficial wrinkles and deep facial skin folds. By injecting these particular muscles sitting under the skin with a natural protein-based anti-wrinkle solution, we can safely and temporarily relax these muscles, allowing the skin to appear smoother and look more youthful.

Anti-wrinkle treatments in the Perth CBD

At Aria Dental, Perth, we have an injectables nurse who is highly skilled in anti-wrinkle injection techniques.

Patients suffering from tooth grinding issues or TMJ problems can be successfully treated using anti-wrinkle injections to relax the overactive or spasming muscle. Another common aesthetic problem in dentistry is a ‘gummy smile’. While our cosmetic dentists treat this in various ways, anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to cover the top lip and minimise the amount of contraction that exposes the gums.

Frequently asked questions

Select FAQ or read on below

Do anti-wrinkle injections hurt?

Most people can feel a brief sting with anti-wrinkle injections. However, this pain is short-lived and made barely noticeable if we use numbing cream or ice before your injection.

How long does it take for anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections take three to four days before they start to work, and you may not see the full effects for a good ten days.

Weren’t anti-wrinkle injections called something else?

Yes, we used to refer to anti-wrinkle injections by their brand name. However, in accordance with AHPRA regulations, we are no longer allowed to use these names and instead describe them as ‘anti-wrinkle injections” or ‘wrinkle relaxers’.

How long will anti-wrinkle injection results last?

Anti-wrinkle injections last anywhere between three to six months, with most people waiting about four or five months in between appointments. There is no set time to wait for your next appointment. Instead, when you feel that the results have worn off, simply book in for another appointment.

How much do anti-wrinkle injections cost?

The cost of your anti-wrinkle injections will depend on the number of areas treated. Please contact our reception for further information.

Will I look frozen?

We would like you to look fresh, not frozen. Remember, many people have anti-wrinkle injections; the only noticeable results are bad ones. We will inject only a small amount of treatment, initially, and gauge the results. We want to gently relax certain muscles but not paralyse your face.

What will happen if I don’t continue treatment?

If you don’t continue treatment with your wrinkle relaxer injections, your muscles will slowly start to work again, and you will soon look as if you did before. There will be no negative side effects.

Are anti-wrinkle injections the same as dermal fillers?

No, anti-wrinkle injections are different from dermal fillers. Although they are both cosmetic injections, anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscle beneath the skin. Dermal fillers create a smooth appearance to the skin by plumping the skin with hyaluronic acid. Sometimes, a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers will be recommended.
