Anti-Wrinkle Injections in Melbourne

WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

An effective cosmetic beauty tool, anti-wrinkle injections produce marked results when applied professionally by the fully trained staff at the Duquessa Clinic.

Restrictions set by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Authority (TGA) mean that we cannot name the anti-wrinkle injectable we use, but you will certainly recognise its widely used trade name. The treatment leaves skin looking rejuvenated and refreshed so you can feel confident and secure.

HOW DO THE INJECTIONS WORK?

As we age, our muscles and skin gradually lose elasticity. The regeneration of collagen and elastin slows down, skin is less able to renew itself and underlying muscles become less able to fully relax after contraction. The result is a semi-permanent setting of fine lines including; smile lines, frown lines and wrinkles. Combined with various other biological and environmental factors, this can age the skin prematurely.

Anti-wrinkle injectables help facial muscles to relax, allowing lines in your skin to appear smoother or even disappear completely.

Anti-wrinkle Injections FAQ’s

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A FACELIFT?

Anti-wrinkle injections are more subtle and affordable than a surgical facelift. It does not involve the risks or lengthy recovery time of an invasive surgery. As the treatment is not a permanent procedure, its effects diminish over time, based on individual metabolisms.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Depending on your treatment, it may take as little as 15 minutes. During consultation we will discuss options for areas of concern, any medication or medical conditions that preclude your treatment, environmental and genetic factors that may contribute to wrinkles and your budget.

IS THIS TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE?

Some wrinkles are more suited to different procedures, for example, where lines are deep set, dermal filler or a combination of therapies may be more appropriate.

WILL I LOOK STIFF OR PLASTIC?

At Duquessa, we believe in protecting, revealing and enhancing natural beauty. Our expert practitioners follow best practice and the highest standards in professional ethics. We strive to avoid over treatment. Instead, we aim to gradually improve your appearance, ensuring a subtle and flattering effect.
