Cosmetic Injectables Sunshine Coast
MD Cosmetics’ anti-wrinkle treatments aim to soften and reduce the appearance of fine lines leaving you with a smooth, more wrinkle-free complexion. The repeated use of facial muscles over time, combined with facial structural changes or loss of facial fat and collagen, can cause deep lines and wrinkles remaining present when the face is at rest. Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles and temporarily reducing their movement, which reduces current lines’ appearance and prevents lines from worsening or new ones appearing.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be for both aesthetic and medical purposes, such as the reduction of fine lines or for medical purposes, such as jaw grinding and excessive sweating. Please note, you must be at least 18 years of age and not pregnant or breast feeding.
People generally notice their wrinkles are reduced or no longer visible within two to three days of treatment. The results can last up to five months. Repeated treatments will continue to soften and improve the lines. Repeated treatments are recommended to maintain results and muscle relaxation to prevent the formation of new wrinkles and lines.
To help achieve a wrinkle-free look, a naturally occurring protein extract is injected into specific muscles within the region where the wrinkles occur. This temporarily blocks the signal that tells the muscle to contract, creating a smooth and flawless finish.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are common, and the most treated areas include;
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet / periorbital lines
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Dimpling of the chin
- Upper lip lines and corners of the mouth
- Widened or square jaw
- Platysmal or neck bands
- Gummy smile
- Frown lines
Pricing starts at $4.50 per unit. At our 2-week review after your first treatment with MD Cosmetic and Skin, we offer complimentary top-up if required.
The natural ageing process combined with living under the harsh Australian sun causes our skin to lose collagen, resulting in lines, loss of elasticity and volume, wrinkles and facial changes – Dermal Fillers are a common, safe and effective solution to adding or restoring volume in the face.
Finding someone to inject dermal fillers on the Sunshine Coast is not a difficult task. What proves challenging is finding an experienced and professional clinician with a thorough understanding of anatomy and an artistic eye for facial balance and harmony.
When deciding to get dermal fillers, we urge our patients not to be driven by price-point alone, a common mistake made by many, particularly young people. We remind our clients that you are still undergoing a medical procedure and that more cost-effective clinics can have you paying the price for inexperience, poor quality filler and a higher risk of complication. Likewise, we understand the pain when clients are forced to pay double for an experienced clinician to dissolve and fix the first round of ‘dodgy’ fillers.
Please note that it is illegal to advertise specific prescriptions medicines such as dermal filler in Australia. Rest assured, MD Cosmetic and Skin Clinic uses premium quality dermal filler for optimum and long-lasting results, which we can further discuss during a consultation.
Dermal Fillers are biodegradable, and the longevity of your fillers will depend on the product selected and factors unique to the individual. Results usually last between 6-18 months.
You will see results immediately, however most people experience mild swelling. Wait two to four weeks for the swelling to subside and filler to settle to see final results.
Most people choose to enhance their natural features with dermal fillers, common areas include cheeks, lips, lower face lines, chin & jawline, chest & hands and nose-to-mouth lines.
The treatment should only take between 15-30 minutes, depending on the areas and amount chosen. With a skilled clinician, dermal fillers are often associated with a mild stinging sensation and shouldn’t require numbing cream.
Dermal Fillers are an aesthetic gel-based cosmetic treatment injected into the skin that mimics a naturally occurring substance in the body. A standard and safe procedure, dermal fillers are designed to rejuvenate skin by enhancing the face’s natural contours, restoring volume, and hydrating age-affected skin.

PDO Threat Double Chin Treatment and Thread Lift
The PDO Lift is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment that may reduce the signs of ageing around the face and neck in both men and women. A PDO Thread lift is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, or fillers and is used to redefine the face’s contours by providing immediate, discreet and natural-looking results. The PDO thread is a dual-action treatment used for both thread lifts, double chin treatment and overall facial rejuvenation.
During this treatment, small-anchoring medical grade sutures are inserted into specific areas to lift sagging skin. The sutures lightly ‘pull’ and recontour the face, and then dissolve over time for as collagen forms around the treated areas. The threads are made of Polydioxanone, a fine synthetic material used in medical surgeries and medicine and are fully biodegradable breaking down after 6 months. The PDO threat stimulates collagen production, helping with lifting the face, fine lines and textual irregularities.
It is a discreet, 30-60-minute procedure, meaning you’ll be able to get back to work and social activities with minimal disruption to your daily schedule within 2-7 days. There may be a minimal inflammatory reaction, minor swelling and bruising, however this natural reaction is equal to any other cosmetic or aesthetic treatment such as fillers.
Results are immediate, however, will continue to improve long-term as the body continues to synthesize collagen around the sutures. Collagen production significantly reduces with age, therefore this ‘re-stimulation’ is pivotal to providing long-term lift and tightening of the face and neck contours. The thread fully dissolves after 6 months and results last from 12-18 months.
Those looking to mitigate the signs of ageing and boost natural collagen production in the face through a double chin treatment or thread lift of the face. Book a consult with one of our clinicians to see if the PDO treatment is suitable for you.

Collagen stimulators don’t reshape the skin – they restore it. Considered the next generation of cosmetic fillers, Collagen Stimulators are highly effective in total facial rejuvenation, improving skin structure and volume restoration. Also known as bio stimulators, this medical-grade technology is a semi-permanent filler that encourages and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen stimulators do not target specific areas of the face, like dermal fillers. Instead, they can provide long-lasting and natural results across large areas of the face.
Collagen is one of the main structural proteins in the skin and is responsible for firmness, elasticity, volume and smoothness. As we age, our collagen production naturally decreases, causing thinner skin more susceptible to volume-loss and fine lines. Collagen Stimulators are particularly effective in improving face volume and skin depressions or creases, such as nasolabial fold and marionette lines. This treatment is also known to enhance cheek and temple contours, tighten the skin and improve general skin quality and volume.
Please note that strict Australian TGA rules regarding advertising prescription medication prohibits us from naming the brand of collagen stimulators we use online. However, this product is top-grade; biodegradable and is the same active product used in thread lifts and absorbable surgical sutures in medicine.
Recovery time can last between 2-7 days
Depending on the individual, collagen stimulators can last between 24 to 36 months following a full treatment course.
Collagen stimulators are biodegradable and biocompatible, with an extremely low risk profile. This natural substance is injected into the skin with a fine needle or candula, and the collagen microparticles work to stimulate collagen production over time.
A short procedure, lasting 15-30 minutes.
Those looking to reduce volume loss, thinning skin, natural facial enhancement & skin tightening. Collagen stimulators or not safe for pregnant women.
Collagen Stimulators require an average of two vials per treatment is for facial re-volumisation. We offer a full quote during your consultation.
