This therapy targets specific, individual muscles, and we are conservative in its application, you don’t lose the ability to form most facial expressions (that is, your kids will still know if you are cross with them!).
Anti-wrinkle injections, or cosmetic injections as they are also known, are very effective in the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles such as forehead lines, frown lines, worry lines and crow’s feet. It is also effective in facial reshaping including softening the excessively square jaw and reducing the gummy smile.

We also offer 15% off these prices for VIP clients (those who have had cosmetic surgery with us or spent over $1000 in 12 months).
Please be aware that we generally administer the manufacturer’s recommended dose to patients. Your needs may be less than or greater than the standard does so for maximum impact you may require less or more units. Our price per unit is $18.50 - more than a chain store clinic, but see more below on what makes us different for anti-wrinkle injections.
It is important to remember that injectable treatments are medical procedures not simply beauty products, so at Hunter Plastic Surgery we ensure all patients have the opportunity to have a full facial analysis performed before appropriate treatments are prescribed and reviewed with our Plastic Surgeon. Risks and benefits of treatment are also explained in your consultation.
The consultation with Nurse Melissa is $100. This is rebated against your treatment should you decide to proceed.
1 – You are in safe hands: At Hunter Plastic Surgery, you can be confident in the expertise of the person performing your procedure as all anti-wrinkle injections are performed by a Specialist Cosmetic Nurse, overseen by our Plastic Surgeon, Dr Moncrieff.
2 – We only use the leading brands for our injections: While we are not allowed to publish the brand name due to medical regulations, we can discuss it over the phone. Essentially the benefit of using only the leading brands is their safety records have been established over many years, the product lasts longer and it has less side effects than cheaper options offered elsewhere.
3 – You have access to our expert Plastic Surgeon: Our clinic is owned and managed by Dr Nicholas Moncrieff who is available to meet you on-site, not over Skype as offered in other clinics.
Straight after treatment you will notice small bumps where the toxin was injected (don’t be alarmed, this is normal).
Unlike facial fillers, you will not immediately see results. Depending on the person and dosage, it can take 3 days before any changes are noticed and 12 days before the toxin fully takes effect.
We understand that sometimes things change! Given the high demand for consultations, all we ask that clients give us at least 2 full working days notice (by phone – 4920 7700) if they are not going to be able to attend at their scheduled time to allow us to contact people on our wait-list to reallocate the time.
If appointments are cancelled or rescheduled by the patient with less than 2 full working days notice they will be charged the full consultation fee. This will result in the forfeiture of your $100 deposit for the consultation. We reserve the right to decline requests to subsequently rebook for the same client.
We welcome you to bring an adult friend or family member. We ask that children under 12 are NOT brought with you to any appointments at Hunter Plastic Surgery before, during or after your procedure (including post operative visits). That ensures that our team are able to focus on your needs without distractions. We also have sensitive medical equipment in our clinic which is not always compatible with curious minds and hands. Cancellation policy applies.
