Anti Wrinkle Injections
With two clinics across Victoria, in Carlton and Ballarat, Clinica Lase offers the latest and best anti-wrinkle treatments for our patients. Our safe, well-proven, and successful cosmetic injection procedures help to assuage the ageing process.
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to relax the muscles and are commonly injected into the forehead, between the forehead and around the eyes. The cosmetic procedure allows wrinkles to disappear and is designed to prevent wrinkles from forming. Our anti-wrinkle treatments take full effect within 7-10 days post procedure, and results can give you a youthful glow for, on average, 3 to 4 months.
Thanks to our convenient location and reputation for achieving fantastic results, we find many clients travel to us. Whether you in the surrounding Melbourne areas such as South Yarra, South Melbourne, & Port Melbourne or more regional hubs such as Bendigo, Clinica Lase offers the highest standard of treatments. Our goal is to make this revolutionary technology available to all who seek it.

Avoid over-the-counter blood thinning medications such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen for 1 week before treatment.
Avoid vitamin A based topical products such as Retinols for 3 days before treatment.
Avoid alcoholic beverages 24 hours before treatment to minimise potential bruising.
Inform us if you have a history of Perioral Herpes (Cold Sores) to receive advice on antiviral therapy prior to treatment.
Before the consultation, we will ask you to fill out a form which includes important information relevant to the anti-wrinkle injection procedure, such as any existing medical conditions. In a private discussion with one of our supervising Doctors and expert cosmetic nurses, we will go through the whole procedure with you step-by-step, including care before and after the procedure. This also provides you with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have along the way. Our supervising Doctor and cosmetic nurse will outline a plan for the procedure, which you can then work together to modify as needed.
At Clinica Lase, our work is all about quality. We only use the finest, safest, most trusted ingredients available for anti-wrinkle procedures. These are administered by one of our highly qualified and experienced cosmetic nurses. We make safety our first priority and enforce this rule at every stage of your procedure. Through our in-depth consultations, we work to minimise any risk of complication.
Following your anti-wrinkle injection, there are a number of things you can do to ensure the procedure has been as effective as possible. These include:
Exaggerating facial movements for 1 hour after your treatment to work the injected product into your muscles
Avoid products containing AHAs, BHAs or Retinoids for 48 hours post-procedure
Use mineral makeup (if using any at all) and apply with well cleaned sponge or brush
Avoid facial treatments, peels, or facial massages for 48 hours post-procedure
Stay upright and avoid strenuous exercise for 3-4 hours post-procedure
Avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication eg. nurofen, aspirin, ibuprofen for 48 hours, as they may induce bruising
In addition to these, it is also very normal to have some redness, swelling and tenderness post-treatment. Some patients may experience small mosquito bite like bumps at the injection site. They generally only last about an hour, but you may ice the area to assist with this swelling. If you are still experiencing some discomfort more than 48 hours later, be sure to contact the clinic as soon as possible.
Lastly, it is not uncommon for patients to experience a mild headache post-procedure. If this happens, simply take paracetamol when needed.
