Achieving The Look You Desire Can Be As Easy As It Is Quick With Anti Wrinkle Injections From Cairns Plastic Surgery’s Experienced Team Of Injectable Nurses.

  • Anti-wrinkle injections can help improve problem areas of the face
  • This can include crows feet, forehead wrinkles, and other fine lines
  • They can also be the result of excessive frowning, squinting and smiling

Wrinkles may be a natural part of the ageing process, but now, you can enjoy a smoother contour and more youthful appearance with anti wrinkle injections from Cairns Plastic Surgery.

Facial or “expression” lines appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibres in our skin break down and wear out.

Cairns Plastic Surgery delivers safe and effective anti-wrinkle treatments for patients who are eager to minimise the signs of ageing.

The science of injectable anti-wrinkle treatments is constantly being updated and offers real advances in non-surgical treatments. Discover more below…

Anti Wrinkle Injections Cairns

Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxants are a simple and quick non-surgical treatment that deliver dramatic results!

  • Soften harsh or deep-seated expression lines
  • Create a smoother, plumper, and more youthful complexion
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles like crows feet

At Cairns Plastic Surgery, we use a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smoothed, rejuvenated, and a more youthful appearance.

How Do Muscle Relaxants Work?

One treatment of a few tiny injections relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to four months.

To maintain the effect you will require repeat injections 2-3 times a year.

Injectable wrinkle treatments are one of the safest and most effective treatments in Cosmetic Medicine today.

They have been used for cosmetic purposes for over a decade and for medical purposes for even longer without any reports of long-term side effects.

Dermal Fillers

  • Add volume to the lips, creating a plumper pout
  • Restore facial volume by filling soft tissue under the skin
  • Powerful face rejuvenation procedure available in Cairns!

As we age, both the quantity and quality of collagen diminishes: folds, wrinkles and hollowness appear on our faces. When volume is lost, the face begins to sag.

But now, a truly remarkable skin regeneration product can reverse the loss of skin fullness, restoring a plump and smoother face!

When you restore the underlying foundation, it restores the structure and youthfulness of the face.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal filler injections are made below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss.

The result is a gradual increase in skin thickness over a number of treatment sessions.

It is important to remember that dermal fillers will will not reverse the underlying cause of the facial fat loss; instead, they help to improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

Collagen Stimulants

Collagen stimulants can help to rebuild the collagen framework. These types of injections encourage the body to rebuild its own lost collagen.

Popular areas that can be treated with collagen stimulants at Cairns Plastic Surgery are:

  • Lines around the corner of the mouth
  • Cheek wrinkles
  • Chin creases
  • Temple area
  • Drooping jowls

The number of treatments needed will depend on your particular circumstances – so why not organise your complimentary catch-up with a Cairns Plastic Surgery Nurse today.

Injected Directly Into The Dermis (The Deeper Layer Of Skin), Dermal Fillers Fill In And Elevate The Skin’s Surface To Make It Look Smooth, Plump, And Even.

Dermal fillers are products that are injected into the skin to fill in defects such as creases, lines, wrinkles and scars.

Where Are Dermal Fillers Used?


Fine lines around the mouth, nose, and lips can be smoothed out with dermal filler injections. These lines tend to get deeper as we age, and as we lose elasticity in our skin, it tends to sag.


Dermal fillers in the cheeks can provide an instant lift and improve the plumpness and shape of the cheeks and face. Fuller cheeks can result in a younger and fresher appearance.


Working to improve the appearance of the under eye and lower eyelid area, dermal fillers around the eyes can help to correct the loss of volume (a sunken/hollow appearance) of the under eye area. Fillers can also be used to reduce the appearance of dark circles.


Dermal fillers in the brow can be a great non-surgical alternative to brow lift surgery. Fillers can relax the brow muscles to create a smoother, lifted appearance.


Enjoy a fuller pout! Redefine the shape of your lips and improve the volume with fillers. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and numbing cream helps to improve your comfort.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

A dermal filler injection is a comfortable procedure where the filler is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle.

Local anaesthetic cream may be applied to the skin prior to injection for increased comfort during this quick treatment.

Once injected, the gel plumps and lifts the skin gently to replace collagen loss caused by the natural ageing process.

Movement and sensation are not affected – your lips and skin will still look natural and feel soft!

Is There Any Downtime Following Dermal Filler Treatment?

Most patients will not experience any downtime and can return to normal activities immediately following treatment.

Some people may experience some mild swelling or bruising, but these usually subside within a few days. Bruising can also be covered with makeup.

Dermal fillers typically last for 12-18 months.

What Are Fillers?

These products are a non-animal hyaluronic acid made from a naturally occurring sugar which is broken down by your metabolism over a period of time.

This wrinkle treatment has the ability to combine with water, so when the molecules dissolve, they depart without leaving any trace in your body.

Modern skin fillers can achieve impressive results in non-surgical facial rejuvenation. They are often highly effective in smoothing wrinkles, erasing lines in the face and providing lip enhancement without the need for surgery.

Muscle Relaxants

Muscles repeatedly used to frown, smile, and squint can cause our sin to retain ‘static’ lines and wrinkles which become deeper with time as well as lack of prevention.

How Do Muscle Relaxants Work?

  • Muscle relaxants target those specific muscle to decrease their movement
  • Hence, they improve the overall appearance of your face
  • The result is a refreshed, natural look
  • They can last for up to four months when using the recommended dose
  • After this time, the product is broken down by your metabolism
  • Facial muscles will return to normal activity

They can be used in various areas of the face and neck, and results can be visible in three to ten days. No downtime is associated, but there is a risk of bruising, asymmetry, and tenderness.

Muscle relaxants can be used independently or in conjunction with dermal fillers, collagen stimulants or skin care for overall facial rejuvenation.
