Pricing for Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Updated: May 29, 2020
Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles that cause the wrinkle. This makes the muscle relax and results in skin that is smoother and the wrinkles that appear softer.
Wrinkles that happen when you make an expression such as frowning or smiling respond really well to anti wrinkle treatments.
All anti wrinkle injections are schedule 4 medications and can only be administered by a trained medical professional such as a doctor or a nurse.
In Australia, it is illegal to advertise product names but predominantly there are 2 major brands, Type B and Type D, that are the most popular on the market.
Although they work the same they differ in price.
Usually 1 unit of Type B is equivalent to 2.5 - 3 units of Type D.
This can vary from clinic to clinic as some clinics will use more saline when preparing the solution resulting in the concentration of the product to be different. So although Type D may seem cheaper per unit you will need to times that 1 unit by 2.5 - 3 to make up 1 unit of Type B. Basically you end up paying the same.
There is much debate over the longevity of either product but depending on the area being treated and the dose you can expect the treatment to last anywhere from 3 - 6 months.
