Natural ageing and extensive facial muscle use can create deeply embedded fine lines and wrinkles that remain even with a straight face. Anti-wrinkle injections relax your muscles to evenly smooth out deep lines and creases in common facial areas for a smoother, more energetic appearance.
Lines in the facial skin naturally occur with age and are accentuated by the repeated use of facial expressions and muscles over time. Anti-wrinkle injections are used to reverse the effects of aging and give the skin a smoother and tighter appearance.
At Flawless Rejuvenation, 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.
At Flawless Rejuvenation, we offer a personalised, patient-focused treatment approach. Explore your rejuvenation options with an obligation-free consultation, valued at $50, which is fully redeemable if you proceed with treatment. At your consult, we will:
Anti Wrinkle Treatment uses small injections of a naturally occurring protein that acts as a neuromodulator. Anti-wrinkle injections use a prescription-only medication and it is essential that specifically trained professional administer treatment. Flawless Rejuvenation’s injectors utilise two brands of anti-wrinkle. These brands can be discussed 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 factors such as smoking and excessive sun exposure. Some lines may be inherited or deepened by specific 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.
Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Improve Skin Laxity
Anti-wrinkle injections are a cosmetic procedure used to relax the facial muscles that constrict 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 significantly reducing the constriction of muscles which result from expression 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 aesthetic 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.
In most circumstances, the ideal candidate for this procedure:
During an initial consultation, a discussion about your medical history, current skin condition, and goals will determine your suitability for the procedure. Your individual characteristics and preferences, along with information about your skin and medical history, will be used to determine your suitability. Along with this, the severity of wrinkles and creases in the areas you want treated will be taken into account. From this, a personalised treatment plan will be created for you to achieve your desired results.
Every treatment is dependent 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 determining the best treatment plan for you. 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, series of small and precise injections will be administered into certain muscles located 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.
The effects of the injections will be noticeable a few days to a week after the treatment and will last for approximately 6 months, though this can vary from person to person. Top-up treatments will likely be required to maintain the effects. However, as time goes on, patients may find fewer treatments are necessary for sustaining the smoother skin appearance.

Some patients may feel mild discomfort during the procedure, and this varies between patients. As the needle is very small, the pain experienced should not be significant. Anesthetic creams can be applied to ensure the utmost level of comfort during the treatment.
As a low-risk procedure, any side effects resulting from the treatment will be mild and temporary. There may be minor residual 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.This can include:
Treating this area decreases the expression lines that are noticable when we raise our eyebrows. Softening these lines helps make-up to sit better on your skin.
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.
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 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.
The lines that appear above your upper lip referred to 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 in combination with dermal fillers.
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 dermal fillers or treat lips with both.
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 being visible when smiling.
When these muscles are strong they pull down the corners of your mouth making your mouth look sad and shortening your chin. Treatment will relieve the downward appearance of the corners of the mouth, help lengthen the chin and enhance your smile.
The muscles we use when we clench our jaw or grind our teeth can grow larger giving a squarer jaw line. Treatments will soften the appearance and can reduce the headaches caused by clenching and grinding teeth.
The muscles between your bottom lip and your chin can become active curling the chin upwards creating a pebbled appearance on your chin, making it look shorter. Treating these muscles will lengthen your chin and reduce the pebbled appearance.
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 giving a smoother appearance and improve the profile of our neck and jaw area.
