Anti Wrinkle Injections

Natural aging and frequent use of facial muscles can create deeply embedded fine lines and wrinkles that remain even with a straight face.

Lines in the facial skin naturally occur with age and are enhanced by the repeated use of facial expressions and muscles over time. Anti wrinkle injections relax your muscles in order to evenly smooth out deep lines and creases in common facial areas. This creates a smoother, more energetic appearance.

At Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne, Dr Sean Arendse and our experienced injectors aim for a natural appearance, relaxing the muscles that bunch the skin upon contraction which cause and deepen wrinkling. The popular procedure is fast and effective in reducing and preventing the formation of new lines in the skin.

How it works

Anti wrinkle injections reverse the effects of aging and give the skin a smoother and tighter look. The treatment uses small injections of a naturally occurring protein that acts as a neuromodulator. The product is a prescription-only medication, and therefore, it is essential that a trained professional administer treatment. Flawless Rejuvenation’s injectors use two brands of anti-wrinkle. You can discuss these brands one-on-one with our staff.

Fine lines in the skin become noticeable over time due to the slowing of collagen and elastin production. Along with this, factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and general lifestyle can impact your skin’s quality. You may inherit some facial lines or deepen them through repeated facial expressions. Anti wrinkle injections administer a purified protein that works by preventing the muscle contraction that causes skin wrinkling. It does this by temporarily blocking the release of a neurotransmitter (a chemical messenger in the body) from activity, which in turn relaxes the muscles. The procedure has been widely used to effectively treat a range of skin conditions.

The benefits

Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Improve Skin Laxity

Anti wrinkle injections are a cosmetic procedure that relaxes facial muscles that have contracted over time. The skin is responsive to repeated muscle movement which makes the surface adopt creases characteristic of expression. As we age, these creases remain even when in a resting position.

Injections reverse this effect by largely reducing the constriction of muscles that result from expressions such as raised or furrowed eyebrows. This removes fine lines and wrinkles from the skin’s surface, making it appear more relaxed and adopt a smoother and more youthful appearance. For example, muscles in the forehead and around the eyes and mouth are commonly targeted areas. The treatment prevents wrinkles that are forming as well as reduces the worsening of existing wrinkles. Dr Arendse uses the best and most up-to-date practices to reduce or completely eliminate those lines and creases to achieve a more desirable look.

Ideal candidates for anti-wrinkle injections

Although this treatment offers excellent results, some people may not be suited. In most cases, the ideal candidate for this procedure:

  • Is physically and mentally healthy
  • Is over 18 years old
  • Does not have underlying conditions related to bleeding or skin disorders
  • Has realistic expectations

During an initial consultation, we will discuss your medical history, current skin condition, and goals. This will allow us to decide whether you are suitable. Your skin needs and preferences, along with information about your health, are integral to determining whether you are a good candidate. Along with this, we will take into account the severity of wrinkles and creases in the areas you wish to have treated. As a result, we will create a custom treatment plan for you to achieve your desired results.

Anti-wrinkle injections cost in Melbourne

Every anti-wrinkle treatment is different, since each patient may have different goals and skin needs. This means the cost of your anti-wrinkle injections will depend on the details of your treatment plan, as discussed in your first meeting with us.

When thinking about undergoing this treatment, it is important to consider safety. This means choosing an experienced and qualified professional to perform your treatment. Some clinics may offer the treatment at a lower price as a means to draw patients in, but a lower-priced treatment may not have the same results. At Flawless Rejuvenation, Dr Arendse and his experienced team apply the most up-to-date techniques, using two well-known anti-wrinkle brands.

The costs can range from $6 to $16 per unit, and the number of units can vary based on which areas you wish to address. Generally, it takes somewhere between 10 and 20 units of anti-wrinkle to produce the desired effects in a specific area. For example, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) may require about 12 units. Some patients may need more or less than this, depending on their skin condition, requirements, health, and which areas they wish to address.

When outlining costs, we will consider your personal situation and needs, developing a treatment plan that best suits you. After this, we will be able to provide a more detailed estimate of costs.

What to expect

Every treatment depends on a number of factors and is tailored to your personal needs and goals. The severity of lines and creases as well as the location of the creased skin will contribute to your treatment plan. This personalised approach helps patients to feel comfortable, satisfied, and achieve a more youthful appearance.

After the consultation, the treatment session will not last more than 15-30 minutes. Using a tiny needle, your clinician will administer a series of small and precise injections into certain muscles in specific areas of the face. Dr Arendse and his exceptional staff will ensure you receive the right amount of muscle relaxer to ensure a natural-looking appearance.

Most patients can see the effects of the injections a few days to a week after the treatment, and these effects will last for around three to five months. You will require repeated treatments for ongoing results.

Things to consider

Some patients may feel mild discomfort during the procedure, and this varies between patients. As the needle is very small, the pain should not be significant and the treatment is very well tolerated.

As a low-risk procedure, any side effects resulting from the treatment will be mild and temporary. You may have minor discomfort such as irritation, redness, headaches, and swelling. These symptoms should not cause worry as they will disappear within a few days following the procedure.

In the days following, there are things you can do at home to help prevent complications and achieve the best results. For example, you may need to:

  • Minimise facial activity for the first 30 minutes
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Sleep in a slightly elevated position
  • Avoid rubbing the treated area
  • Minimise exposure to heat and sunlight

Treatment areas


Treating this area decreases the expression lines that are noticeable when we raise our eyebrows. Softening these lines helps make-up to sit better on your skin.

Frown Lines

The frown is the most commonly treated area for anti wrinkle injections. Treatments will make your eyes look more open when you’re concentrating or expressing anger.

Bunny Lines

These are the lines on the sides of our nose that appear when we scrunch up our nose. Treatment will decrease the appearance of these lines and make the side of the nose appear smoother.

Smile Lines (Crows Feet)

Smile lines form at the side of your eyes when you smile. Treatment smoothes out these lines and opens up your eye area to give a more awake and youthful appearance. This area is also treated for an eyebrow lift.

Smokers Lines

The lines that appear above your upper lip are referred to as smokers lines but are quite common for public speakers and teachers. Treatment will reduce the puckering of the area above the upper lip and smooth the appearance of these lines. Treatment can be done with muscle relaxants alone or combined with dermal fillers.

Lip Flip

Sometimes when we smile our upper lip disappears. Anti wrinkle injections will leave more upper lip visible when smiling and at rest. Some people prefer this to lip fillers or treat lips with both.

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is when the muscle above your upper lip is very active and pulls your lip upwards when you smile. Treatment will reduce the amount of gum and teeth that show when smiling.

Sad Corners of the mouth

When these muscles are strong they pull down the corners of your mouth, making it look sad and shortening your chin. Treatment will relieve the downward droop of the corners of the mouth, help lengthen the chin and enhance your smile.

Jawline Slimming

The muscles we use when we clench our jaw or grind our teeth can grow larger giving a square appearance to the jaw line. Treatments will soften this look and can reduce the headaches caused by clenching and grinding teeth.

Pebble Chin

The muscles between your bottom lip and your chin can become active curling the chin upwards creating a pebbled texture on your chin, making it look shorter. Treating these muscles will lengthen your chin and reduce the pebbled effect.

Neck-Platsymal Bands

The muscles in our neck are usually flat and when they become too active they take on a rope-like appearance on the neck area. Treatment will relax these muscles, smoothing the skin and improving the profile of our neck and jaw area.


Anti wrinkle injections are a non-invasive treatment that offers patients a short recovery time. However, you may experience some swelling, redness, or headaches. These mild side effects should subside in a couple of days, leaving you with smoother and more youthful skin. Dr Arendse and his team will advise you on how best to treat your skin in the days following your procedure. This may include guidelines such as:

  • Avoid rubbing or irritating your treated areas
  • Do not exercise for 24 hours
  • Drink water and maintain a healthy diet
  • Sleep with your head slightly elevated
  • Do not expose your treated areas to sunlight and heat

As a low-risk procedure, severe side effects are rare. If you notice any concerning symptoms, contact the clinic and we will advise you further.

How to choose the best anti wrinkle injections clinic in Melbourne

Anti-wrinkle injections are rising in popularity and are a great way to reduce the common signs of ageing. Whether you are seeking to reduce visible wrinkles or soften the facial muscles to prevent future wrinkling, the procedure can yield quality, lasting results. If you are thinking about having anti-wrinkle treatment, it is important to speak to a qualified professional to ensure this is the right path for you. Dr Arendse and his team at Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne tailor each treatment to the patient. This means you can achieve great results that look natural and suit your skin needs and goals.


Will my results look natural?

Anti-wrinkle treatments are designed to be a non-invasive solution to signs of ageing. The Flawless Injecting Team will ensure a precise amount of the substance is injected to create the desired effect and a natural look.

When will I see the results?

Although you may see results in the first 24 hours, your skin quality and texture will continue to improve. It can take a couple of weeks to see the full results of your treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

This can vary, depending on the person and their treatment plan. Results of the injections can last from three to five months, which means patients can opt to have follow-up treatments to maintain their smoother skin.

How are anti wrinkle injections different from dermal fillers?

Anti wrinkle injections are designed to reduce wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles in specific areas. In contrast, dermal fillers aim to restore volume and fullness to the face in order to improve facial contours. Both treatments can be great options, depending on which issues you are seeking to address. A meeting with us at Flawless Rejuvenation can help you decide on which treatment best suits your skin, features, and desired outcomes.

At what age should I start anti-wrinkle injections?

There is no specific age for anti wrinkle injections. While some patients may seek treatment in their 20s or 30s, others may wish to wait until signs of aging become more apparent. Younger patients may wish to start treatments to prevent lines and wrinkles from becoming ingrained in the skin.
