Wrinkle Relaxing Injections provide a safe, quick and reliable solution for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime, creating a youthful, relaxed appearance.
From the moment you were born, you were using your face to express yourself by yawning, crying, and smiling. Over the years, the overused facial muscles develop creases, typically between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and along the forehead, that can make you look tired, angry, or sad.
Wrinkle relaxing treatments can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face, you may even lose the urge to frown.
The most commonly treated areas include the vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Anti wrinkle treatments can also be used to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the corners of the mouth from pulling down, to reduce gummy smiles by lowering the lip and to reduce neck bands. They reduce muscle bulk to refine and slim jaw lines, the cobbled appearance of the chin and horizontal lines above the chin can also be smoothed.
Keeping wrinkles away is possible and in some cases they can be completely eliminated, allowing the overlying skin to soften and smooth for a refreshed appearance. If you are bothered by lines and wrinkles on your face, schedule a consultation at Avanti Aesthetics to learn more about wrinkle treatments from one of our experienced skin care professionals.

The Doctor will deliver a small amount of botulinum toxin to the targeted muscle using an ultra-fine needle. Topical anaesthetic cream is not usually required prior to injections as there is very little discomfort. The injections are pain free with the use of a skin cooling device called Coolsense. This helps numb the area before injection resulting in a very comfortable experience.
The results of a treatment begin to appear from 4-14 days. Generally, after 3-4 months, the effects will begin to fade and facial features will gradually return to their former state. Repeated treatments progressively weaken the targeted muscles and can lead to more prolonged duration and less frequent treatments. Maintenance treatments are necessary to keep the effect for long periods of time.
Clients should avoid alcoholic beverages and anti-inflammatory medications before treatment. For the best results, schedule an appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any special events.
After treatment the Doctor will again go through any aftercare advice in order to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects. You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.
Exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after the treatment, and the area should not be massaged for 24 hrs
It is safe to fly after the treatment, although we generally recommend that you wait 48hrs before flying long haul.
You are advised to attend for a review 2-3 weeks after your first treatment, follow ups are generally not required for subsequent treatments.
