When is the new long-acting anti-wrinkle product available in Australia?
Currently there is no set date regarding if the long-lasting anti-wrinkle injections will be coming to Australia. Firstly, the drugs will have to be approved for use in Australia by the governing body.
Here are a couple of points to take into consideration with longer lasting anti-wrinkle injections:
- if the drug lasts double the length of time, it is reasonable to assume the price of the long-lasting anti-wrinkle product will be roughly double the price of existing products available on the Australian market. Not a lot of people might be able to afford this in one go.
- In the rare event you may have an adverse event from anti-wrinkle injections, such as eyelid ptosis (eyelid droop), or if you aren’t happy with the result, you could potentially have to ‘put up’ with the undesired result for a longer period of time.
