Q&A – Cosmetic Injections Melbourne
Ageing effects on the skin There are two distinct types of ageing which affect the skin. The first caused by our genetic imprint we inherit called intrinsic (internal) ageing which is a continuous process that begins in our mid 20’s and the second type is known as extrinsic which is caused from environmental factors and lifestyle. Most pre mature ageing is cause by UV damage, repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, alcohol/smoking/poor nutrition play a part, which lead to gradual loss of elasticity and volume, and contributes to the early onset of lines and wrinkles.
What are Anti-Wrinkle treatments? Anti-Wrinkle injections are an effective and non-surgical way to soften and smooth lines and wrinkles in the upper and lower face regions. At Beauty Science, we use a specific product botulinum toxin- type A that is the purest on the market. This means that there is less risk of developing antibodies which can prevent treatment from having desired effect over time.
What is Botulinum Toxin? Anti-wrinkle injections have been safely used to reduce wrinkles, and ease the tension of muscles for decades, and are well known by the brand names Botox® and Dysport® It works by temporarily weakening the contraction of the muscles where it is placed, therefore alleviating pain and tension associated with clenching and bruxism. It also reduces the creasing of the skin, thanks to calming the contractions of the muscles of facial expression.
The most common areas for treatment include:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lip lines
In addition to lines and wrinkles, anti-wrinkles injections can be used to lift the eyebrows, reduce gummy smiles treat bruxism (teeth grinding) and soften neck bands.
How Does It Work? When the protein is injected directly into the specific muscle, it blocks the nerve ending in hyperactive muscles and reduces the ability of the muscle to contract and pull the skin which causes lines and wrinkles.
Is it safe? There is very little downtime but as with all injectable medicines have risks and benefits, as with all medications. Possible side effects include pain or stinging, bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site. Although rare, other possible complications include drooping eyelids, headaches, tingling or flu like symptoms.
How soon can I see results? The onset of improvement varies between individuals and also depends on the quantity used, the age of the client and the depth of wrinkle. Generally, the treatment effects can appear as early as a few days and can take up to 14 days to see full effect.
Is this suitable for me? There are some medical conditions (including medications you may take) that may render you unsuitable for these injections; therefore, you will need to provide comprehensive information of your medical history during consultation.
How long does the effect of the treatment last? Individual results vary as lifestyle choices will reduce the longevity of the effects such as intense exercising, alcohol consumption and fast metabolism, but in general can last about three to four months. If you have regular treatments the effects may last longer.

Instantly refresh with dermal fillers
As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of collagen, natural dermal volumizers and moisturisers known as hyaluronic acid such (HA) diminish. Dermal Filler is an injectable gel which contain the same substance (HA) that replicates the actions of this naturally occurring sugar molecule, which attracts and holds water to assist with skin hydration. Primarily used to enhance facial contours and restore volume to areas of the face.
‘Fillers’ is the use of the natural Hyaluronic Acid found in the skin, to correct fine lines, enhance shape and increase volume of the skin and facial features.
Which areas can be treated?
- Lip outline enhancement-cupids bow
- Lip volume
- Cheek volume
- Cheek Lift
- Lines around mouth
How safe is it? Only TGA approved products are allowed in Australia and no allergy test is necessary.
All fillers can be reversed if complications arise. Our choice of dermal filler is the most advanced product on the market which integrates readily into your own tissues. This is especially important in areas like your lips, where you want to see the result and minimal side effects and complications.
A comprehensive consultation will be completed to answer your questions and to determine any pre-existing medical conditions or medications which may not be suitable to undergo treatment.
How soon can I return to normal activities? Some may experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. As the dermal filler is applied via injection you may experience slight bruising, which can be hidden with a concealer.
Are there any side effects? When injecting into the skin to correct lines and wrinkles, or to sculpt and lift contours, the treatment is relatively painless for some, but others may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort or pain.
Some fillers are available with lidocaine, which helps to reduce the sensation of pain you may feel, maximising your comfort.
How quickly will I see results? The results are instant! The length of treatment is individualised and may be done over several visits depending on the product and quantity that needs to be used.
A progressive treatment is usually the safest and has the most effective long-term outcome.
How long will the result last? Depending on filler and quantity used, they usually last from 12-18 months, but decrease from 6 month onwards.
If you have regular treatments the effects may last longer.
