If you’ve held off exploring injectables because of fears you’ll come away looking like a wannabe Real Housewife, we’ve got a message for you: ‘getting something done’ no longer means work that’s too much or one-size-fits-all. The latest injecting techniques allow for hyper-individualised treatment plans that can create the look you want. (Which, if you’re anything like us, is still you, just a teeny, syringe-enhanced bit better.)
Whether it's perfect lips, contoured cheeks or a smoother forehead, cosmetic injectables are one of the most effective treatment options on offer. For best results, a doctor or registered nurse is always the way to go – their clinical know-how and knowledge is a must for top tier patient care. And, since they’ve performed over half a million injectable treatments globally, the team of doctors and registered nurses at Laser Clinics Australia have some very well-practiced and safe hands.
These trusted experts are well known for their in-depth consultations protocols, as well as their signature aesthetic – subtle and natural-looking. (The way they see it, it’s preferable for people to ask where you’ve been on holiday, not who your injector is.) Laser Clinics also happens to be the world’s biggest aesthetic clinic company (yes, really), so they’ve got plenty of experience treating faces of all ages.
Not sure where to begin your journey? Two of the most effective and popular injectables are anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers. Both can be tailored specifically to meet your skin goals. Below we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about these treatments.
What is an anti-wrinkle injectable?
Anti-wrinkle treatment injections work by administering a purified toxin that temporarily blocks the nerve signals into your facial muscles, preventing them from contracting and, by extension, your skin from creasing.
What are the benefits of anti-wrinkle injectables?
Anti-wrinkle injectables can tackle any lines you’re looking to smooth. The most commonly treated facial areas for this low-key "tweakment" are places that can benefit from line-lessening: frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet, and around the brows, as well as around the mouth (injecting into the masseters can help to dial down the intensity of teeth grinding, plus slim the jaw).
Anti-wrinkle injections are not just for wrinkles – they can also be used to treat non-cosmetic areas. They’re super-effective in the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) when injected into the underarms.
