Cosmetic Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They work by relaxing the muscles that cause lines, and can be used to treat a variety of areas such as:

  • Frown lines – between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet – the corner of the eyes
  • Forehead lines – horizontal lines between the brows & hairline

We use Dysport for Anti-Wrinkle injections.  Dysport, like Botox, is a form of botulinum toxin injected into the skin to temporarily relax the muscles.

Anti-wrinkle injections, depending on the dose and location, last a duration of 3-4 months.

Cost varies depending on the area being treated and how much product is needed.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections start from $240 for one standard area, $395 for two standard areas and $495 for three standard areas.  Extra units are $5 per unit + GST.

Dermal Fillers start from $210 + GST.

A FREE cosmetic assessment appointment is undertaken first to understand your goals and the best option to achieve those goals.  If anti-wrinkle injections are decided to be the best option, the doctor will advise you of the cost and how many units is required for your treatment.

A second appointment will be booked for your treatment at a time and date convenient to you.  All costs are payable on the day of treatment.  Medicare does not offer a rebate for cosmetic procedures.

You can book a FREE cosmetic assessment with Dr Leticia Figueiredo online or phone our receptionists for more information.
