Fillers with Anti-Wrinkle Injections – a Longer-Lasting Effect?March 21, 2016
Injectable treatments have reached a new hype with the combination between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers – a solution that could smooth your skin and last longer than the standalone treatments.
According to the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler treatments are still on the rise. The reason? These deliver results almost on the spot, are cheaper and require minimal downtime, as opposed to traditional plastic surgery. However, most people would consider these treatments as being used for different concerns.
Read on and discover how two most popular treatments, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, can be combined for a longer-lasting effect.
What are anti-wrinkle injections are and how do they work?
Wrinkle injections contain natural purified toxins as protein to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause the lines and wrinkles. The treatment involves a fine needle injection of the toxin in the area you wish to smooth. It requires no downtime, however you may experience some slight bruising or swelling, all of which can be hidden with makeup.
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we offer the leading brands of wrinkle injections, which are administered by fully qualified medical staff. We have found that the effects of wrinkle injections last on average for three months, but can stretch up to six months, depending on the application of treatment and the patient.
The results you can expect
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to soften the lines caused by facial expressions. These can be adapted for each individual to ensure maximum results. The effects of the treatment last for up to six months, depending on application and each patient’s lifestyle.
Patients seem to know the treatment they want when visiting a clinic. However, good practitioners should look at the multiple factors that prompted a client to reach their decision, guide them through the treatment and discuss further options. At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, our expert clinical team are here to help you through every stage of the treatment, from a complimentary consultation to post-treatment support.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
While anti-wrinkle injections reduce muscle activity around the problem areas of the skin, dermal fillers fill the depleted facial features and stimulate collagen growth.
As we grow older, our skin loses the collagen needed to produce a youthful appearance. The skin become drier, thinner and less able to fix itself. Dermal fillers help treat this problem by adding volume to the targeted areas; this causes the lifting and smoothing of wrinkles and depressions.
While each dermal filler brand has its unique attributes, all work in similar ways. At first, there is the filling and lifting of the loosen skin to restore elasticity. Secondly, the filler can stimulate the body’s natural process to produce collagen for a rejuvenated, long-lasting effect.
The results you can expect
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we believe best-practice procedures offer more subtle results. As such, our goal is to give you a look that leaves your friends and family in awe that you have been able to maintain your youthful appearance over the years.
Depending on each patient, dermal fillers represent an ongoing treatment and can last for up to two years, for a more natural look. Within this time, you can expect your skin to gradually soften, without any dramatic changes. When the effects begin to soften, we usually recommend an extra treatment to freshen your look.
How do anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers complement each other?
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we often use dermal fillers in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections. Together, the two treatments correct wrinkles and restore smoothness and volume to the skin, for a longer-lasting effect.
If you are starting notice visible lines or depressions on your skin that make you feel older and tired, it might be a good time to consider a rejuvenation treatment. The products work synergistically to give you an instant face lift, while prolonging the action of the fillers. Two different mechanisms, wrinkle injections work on the dynamic lines caused by the active muscles, while fillers act on more static lines and add volume to the face.
As both treatments are becoming more affordable due to more clinics offering custom procedures, your main concern is finding a reputable clinic that provides high quality options for your personal desires. Due to the high volume of injectable treatments provided for over 15 years of experience on the Australian market, Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia has become an award winning clinic for rejuvenation treatments.
Whether you have a good understanding of the treatment you want or prefer to explore your options, our specialists always look deeper than the request at hand. We don’t just treat individual lines, but provide a custom treatment for best immediate and long-term results.

Fiona has been working at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia for over two years in the marketing department. Before starting at the clinic, she had never tried any injectable treatments and admits to being cautious about the procedure. “I was becoming unhappy with my nasolabial folds (the lines from my nose to my mouth). They were becoming deep and I felt like they made me look a lot older,” recalls Fiona. “When I consulted Roxy, one of Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia’s nurses, about my concerns she explained that in order to get the best results, I should combine fillers with anti-wrinkle injections. Roxy explained everything very clearly to me so I understood exactly what was needed and the results I should expect”.
“I had been very nervous about going ahead with the procedure, as I am a little afraid of needles,” Fiona explains, “but Roxy was able to make me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Whilst there was some discomfort and a couple of ‘ouchy’ moments, Roxy’s calming nature and confidence in her expertise helped me to overcome my fear of needles.”
There were instant results for Fiona.
As Fiona is in her 40s, the muscles in her cheeks had started to lose volume, causing the skin to sag and placing weight on the nasolabial area. Therefore, the fillers inserted in her cheeks lifted the skin around the nasolabial area, smoothing out the deep folds. Anti-wrinkle injections were also used around the nose and mouth to relax the muscles, with the results becoming even better within a few weeks of the treatment.
“It’s been nine months since the treatment,” Fiona continues, “and there is still no sign of the deep lines that were there before. I’m so happy with the results, that I will definitely do the treatment again when it becomes necessary”.
