Anti Wrinkle Injections Sydney

About the treatment

Alongside the normal ageing process, our daily facial expressions tend to leave their mark. Even on the days we feel vibrant and full of life, over time our wrinkles tell a different story, and we may appear sad, tired—even angry. 

Shape’s philosophy is to nurture, protect and maximise the potential of each individual’s natural beauty, while utilising anti-wrinkle injections to help smoothen the most troubled and stressed areas of the face.

Imagine being able to smile and express yourself as you do now, all-while preserving the grace and symmetry of your face as it is today. You can!

Through a series of anti-wrinkle injections and a personalised beauty plan, this treatment can provide a natural, rejuvenated appearance without compromising your skin’s motion.

If you are contemplating an anti-wrinkle treatment, you can relax in the safe and skilful hands of our Shape cosmetic practitioners, who have the experience and aesthetic ability to ensure you are never over-treated (an approach which can result in the all too common ‘frozen face’ appearance). 

The most common facial areas for anti wrinkle treatments include:

  • crows feet
  • forehead and frown lines
  • eyebrow lift
  • eyelid droopiness

Anti wrinkle injections can also be used to address other types of facial concerns and functional issues, including but not limited to:

  • gummy smile
  • chin dimpling and wrinkling (Peau d’Orange) 
  • facial slimming
  • teeth grinding and clenching 
  • temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
  • excessive sweating in the armpits (Hyperhidrosis)


Dynamic wrinkles appear as a result of natural facial expressions in response to emotions of joy, sadness, fear, worry or surprise. When facial muscles contract, the skin over those muscles stretches to accommodate.  These wrinkles are noticed most when you smile, laugh, frown, cry or during moments of deep concentration. If untreated, dynamic wrinkles eventually become static, which are most commonly the result of facial movements, static forces such as gravity, and chronological ageing.

Static wrinkles result from a loss of the skin’s elasticity caused by gravity, the loss of fat and collagen. These types of lines are visible regardless of muscle action and tend to develop over time. Dermal fillers are typically used to address static wrinkles. In addition to smoothing out dreaded lines (also known as smoker’s lines) and erasing cheek folds, this treatment can also be useful for replacing lost volume and re-plumping facial tissue.

What to expect from Anti Wrinkle Injections

The anti-wrinkle serum temporarily blocks the impulse signal between nerve endings and the facial muscles while weakening the muscle that produces facial lines. The treatment relaxes and lifts the tissue, softening the look of lines to display a subtly tighter and smoother appearance. Over time, anti-wrinkle injections will serve to relax muscle movement and alleviate facial lines. In some cases, frowning habits can be erased entirely.

What to expect from the procedure:

  • Procedure time: 10 – 20 minutes
  • Downtime required: None
  • Results duration: 3 – 6 months*
  • Pair this treatment with: Dermal Fillers to the cheek and lips.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for cosmetic treatments and medical purposes for well over a decade. The process has a long track record of safety and requires no downtime post-treatment. While there may be some short-term redness, swelling or mild bruising, there are generally few side effects to anti-wrinkle treatments.

As an internationally recognised centre in the plastic and cosmetic industry, Shape provides exceptional care and ensures that patients are always in safe and expert hands.

Our highly-qualified and experienced specialists will work with you to achieve a holistic beauty plan that will nurture and revive your natural appearance. Effectively, the anti-wrinkling treatment will leave you with a pure, proportional and revitalised appearance.

At Shape Clinic we are committed to providing a very personal level of care. The procedure takes place in a safe and welcoming environment, where you are treated by a dedicated and proficient team.

Am I a candidate for anti-wrinkle injections?

Ageing endows us with wisdom yet troubles us with lines and wrinkles. Over time, life experience reflects on our skin. The stress and tension that comes with ageing can diminish our self-assurance causing us to withdraw from social activity and lose faith in our beauty.

At Shape Clinic, we believe that to age gracefully, it’s essential to love and honour who you are first, so that your inner beauty and resulting happiness reflects effortlessly on your face. To do that, we help you explore avenues that can maintain your confidence, courage and sense of self. All phases of life are unique and you can feel beautiful throughout each of them. 

If ageing has narrowed your self-confidence and overall happiness, anti-wrinkling injections might be the key to regenerating your mental wellbeing.

Pairing anti wrinkle treatments for optimal results

Dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections are often used together to achieve a more fulfilling rejuvenation of the face. The two treatments cooperate to both clear the face of wrinkles and lines and restore the volume that naturally diminishes over time. When completed in conjunction, the result accentuates the face’s natural features and enlivens the skin to appear youthful and revitalised.

Total Face Enhancement
Since the ageing process encompasses all parts of the face, achieving a complete rejuvenation may be the best way forward. In line with Shape’s vision, a total face enhancement addresses the face as a whole, rather than a collection of separate parts. Pioneered by Dr Liew, this treatment embraces the face’s features in unity, and serves to re-sculpt and ultimately restore all facial features to achieve an aesthetically ideal oval shape.

Through new non-surgical procedures, such as lower face and jawline re-sculpting, a total face enhancement can help you attain a more glamorous, harmonious appearance. To learn more about this treatment, see our page on Total Face Enhancement.
