Anti-Wrinkle Treatments in Melbourne

What & How

Create beautiful, smooth skin today with the help of DermaMed, the specialists in anti-wrinkle treatments in Hawthorn, Melbourne.

Anti-wrinkle injections treat wrinkles in the skin by relaxing the movement and contraction of the underlying facial muscles. When the muscles are relaxed, they do not wrinkle or fold the overlying skin and so the skin will smooth out over time. The muscles begin to relax after 2–3 days following treatment with the maximum effect present at 2 weeks.

A natural look is very achievable and you will leave the sanctuary of our clinic feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. At DermaMed, we are the leaders in the cosmetic industry and offer state of the art treatments to achieve the results you are after.

Uses of anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used on:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines

Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to:

  • Strategically relax certain muscles to create an eyebrow lift
  • Reduce a gummy smile (a smile that reveals the upper gums)
  • Reduce Bunny Lines (wrinkles due to nose scrunching)
  • Reduce chin lines and dimpling (horizontal crease between the chin and the lower lip)
  • Stop the downward pull of muscles on the mouth and neck, therefore creating a ‘lifting’ effect
  • Prevent teeth grinding or reshape the sides of the face
  • Reduce excessive underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis)

All you need to know about anti-wrinkle injections

Treatments with anti-wrinkle injections involve having a number of small injections inserted just beneath the skin, using a very fine needle. The needle is not injected deeply. It is a short procedure producing minimal discomfort, and you can opt to have ice or numbing cream applied to your skin. Please note numbing cream must be applied to your skin at least 45 minutes before your treatment.

How long will the benefits last?

3–4 months, then the muscles will gradually return to how they moved prior to treatment.

How much does it cost?

Prices start at only $5 per unit, and discounts are given for multiple areas. How many units you require will depend on the strength of the muscles in that area, the area itself and previous injections.

Say goodbye to forehead wrinkles

Over time, as the sun damages your skin, the temporary horizontal wrinkles that form on your forehead when you move your facial muscles may become permanent, making you look stern, tired or angry even when the underlying muscles are still. This happens because the sun degrades the skin so much that it loses its ability to “snap” back into place. Anti-wrinkle injections relaxes the muscles under those wrinkles, thus smoothing out the brow. One of the first places wrinkles begin to crop up is on the forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections (and sometimes dermal fillers) have made eliminating these wrinkles without surgery a possibility.

Crow’s Feet Wrinkles

The skin around your eyes is very thin, making it much more prone to wrinkles than say, your cheeks. Exposure to sun plays a significant role in the development of these wrinkles since the more exposure you get; the thinner your skin becomes over time. Sometimes referred to as “squint lines”, crow’s feet are the spider-like fine lines we get around the outside corners of our eyes that deepen with age. Anti-wrinkle injections can significantly reduce, or eliminate crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes.

Frown Wrinkles

Some people get vertical lines between the eyebrows, often called frown lines, as they age or their skin becomes more sun damaged. These lines can be frustrating to people as others comment they look ‘angry’ all the time, even when they are concentrating or reading. Anti-wrinkle injections can soften or eliminate these verticle lines to give a less angry and youthful look to your face. Sometimes with deeper lines, dermal filler can also be used to soften deep vertical lines.

Underarm Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Extreme underarm sweating (known in the medical field as Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis) is a common condition which is often socially embarrassing because of highly visible wet spots and stained clothes from sweating.Studies estimate up to 5% of the population (male and female) experience excessive underarm sweating that is so severe that they consider surgery to treat this problem. Underarm wet spots are not only embarrassing, but they also stains clothes, complicate business and social interactions, and make everyday activities a lot more difficult to carry out.

When anti-wrinkle injections are used in the armpits, they reduce or stop the sweat production by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate and control the function of these glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive these chemical signals the severe sweating stops for a period of time. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections for this problem usually last an average of six months.

The cost of this procedure is $750 for both underarms to be treated (discounted down from $1800).
