Anti Wrinkle Injections Central Coast
Anti Wrinkle Injections on the Central Coast, also called wrinkle relaxers or anti-ageing injections, are a beautifying injectable treatment designed to reduce lines and wrinkles. The injections relax the facial muscles in order to smooth the overlying skin and reduce the common signs of ageing. By targeting the muscle beneath the skin, the treatment is able to reduce wrinkles that may form or worsen over time.
Facial lines and wrinkles are common. These can appear in areas such as the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and mouth, which can contribute to an aged appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular non-surgical solution to these common signs of ageing.
There is an art to wrinkle relaxers. To achieve the best, most natural-looking wrinkle removal, the needle must be placed in the right muscle, in the correct place, at an ideal dose, by an experienced doctor. A custom treatment plan with Dr Shauna Watts can help you achieve facial smoothness, with naturally beautiful results.
The Benefits of Anti Wrinkle Injections on the Central Coast
Lines and wrinkles can have a number of causes. In addition to natural ageing, they can develop due to other factors such as frequent sun exposure, smoking, and family genetics. As well as this, deep lines and creases are often accentuated by frequent facial movements such as smiling, squinting, and frowning. Although keeping a good skincare routine can help reduce signs of ageing, topical products cannot address the facial muscular movements that contribute to wrinkles forming in the first place. This is where wrinkle relaxers / Anti Wrinkle Injections on the Central Coast can help.
By reducing facial muscle contraction, wrinkle relaxers make the face appear more relaxed. Treatments can:
- Address frown lines and forehead lines
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (lines at the corner of the eye)
- Correct bunny lines (on the nose) and nasolabial folds
- Reduce a gummy smile and smoker’s lines
- Both prevent wrinkles from forming and reduce existing wrinkles
- Create a more relaxed, youthful look
Whilst many people seek wrinkle relaxers for cosmetic reasons, treatments are also effective for treating chronic migraines and headaches.
The procedure for Anti Wrinkle Injections on the Central Coast can look different for every patient. Treatments begin with a consultation during which we will discuss your health and desires for the procedure. Then, Dr Watts will develop a treatment plan to suit your skin needs and preferred outcomes.
Generally, treatment sessions take 15 to 30 minutes and involve injecting tiny amounts of wrinkle relaxers into the skin. The injections will target the muscles beneath your areas of concern, relaxing the muscles and resulting in a smoother skin appearance. The number of injections will depend on your skin condition and treatment areas. Dr Shauna will discuss this with you during your appointment.

Recovery and Results
Most patients can resume all of their normal routines after their getting wrinkle relaxers. Some slight swelling and redness are common, but any side effects of treatment should subside within a few days. Dr Watts will guide you on how to care for your treated areas during the healing process, providing advice such as:
- Stay hydrated and eat a healthy diet
- Sleep with your head slightly propped up
- Avoid sun and heat exposure
- Avoid alcohol before and after treatment
- Do not wear makeup for 24 hours
- Refrain from exercise for 24 hours
These guidelines, and any further advice given by Dr Watts, will help you attain the best possible results from your anti-wrinkle injections.
You should start to see the effects within one to two weeks after treatment, with more improvement afterwards. This is due to the gradual production of collagen and elastin within the skin, improving your skin quality over time. Depending on how your body responds to the wrinkle relaxants, the results can last between three and six months.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for anti-wrinkle injections?
As some faces are more expressive than others, lines aren’t purely a sign of biological ageing. They are also not exclusive to certain age groups. It’s important to note that not all lines can be improved with anti-wrinkle injections, particularly those caused by reduced skin elasticity, and tissue volume loss. It’s for these reasons that Dr Watts suggests an in-clinic consultation with one of our highly skilled doctors. The meeting will ensure we can prescribe the most suitable treatment plan for wrinkle relaxers.
Will I need more than one wrinkle treatment?
Some patients may require several treatment sessions in order to achieve the anti-ageing results they want. Although the exact number can depend on your needs, in general, most people will benefit from three to four treatments.
What’s the difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?
Both wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are injectable treatments; however, they are distinctly different. Dermal fillers create volume in the areas where they are injected, creating more enhanced facial contours. In contrast, anti-wrinkle injections are a muscle relaxing treatment, reducing wrinkles by softening the muscle movement in the area. If you are unsure which treatment is ideal, a meeting with Dr Watts will help you decide on a treatment plan that is right for you.
