If you would like to schedule an appointment to receive anti-wrinkle injections at The Plastic Surgery Clinic & Medispa, serving Sydney’s Upper and Lower North Shore, and Norwest regions, please contact our practice today.

In individuals who have received several prior treatments, longer lasting results can occur. When deep facial wrinkles are present, then a combination approach with dermal fillers may also be required.
