Frequently Asked Questions

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a muscle relaxant made from a natural purified protein. A qualified doctor can administer your anti-wrinkle treatment to subtly relax wrinkle-causing muscles. Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used to smooth out existing lines that have formed over time. However, they can also be used for young adults who wish to prevent lines from forming in the future.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

To understand how anti-wrinkle injections work it makes sense to first understand how wrinkles are formed. Wrinkles are generally formed from making repetitive facial expressions. Frowning, for example, causes the skin between the brows to crease. When we are young this skin is resilient and tends to bounce right back. However, as we age our skin loses elasticity and it doesn’t bounce back as it used to. Creases may even become visible when we aren’t making a facial expression at all -leaving you looking tired, stressed or angry even when you feel fine.  Frowning repetitively will eventually lead to creases or wrinkles forming around the brow.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a muscle relaxant and they can be strategically injected by your Artisan clinician to relax wrinkle-causing muscles. By relaxing the muscles that allow us to make facial expressions like a frown, we can soften the creases and lines that are formed from these repetitive movements.

How long does a treatment take?

For an initial consultation we allow 45 minutes, subsequent treatments take only 15 minutes.

How long until I see results?

Everyone is different, but you may start to notice a difference after 3 days with optimal results on display from 1-2 weeks post-treatment.

How long does it last?

Results last 3 to 4 months. With regular treatments, wrinkles continue to improve and the effects may last longer.*

Is it safe?

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used around the world for over two decades. They are safe, fully tested and approved by the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA regulations prevent us from naming the brand).

As with all medical treatments, your overall results will be dependent on your clinician’s expertise. Artisan’s cosmetic injectors all work under the medical guidance of one of Australia’s most experienced cosmetic physicians, Dr Linda Williams.

Is it painful?

Because we use a very fine needle and the injections take only seconds, most clients tolerate anti-wrinkle injections very well. However, a topical anesthetic gel can be applied to numb the area prior to treatment if desired.

What should I expect at my first consultation?

Your clinician will discuss with you the areas of your face that you would like to enhance or improve. After a facial assessment, your clinician will explain the treatment options that will help you to achieve your desired results.* You are then welcome to go ahead with treatment at the time of consultation, alternately we can provide you with some take-home information if you would like to consider treatment options further.
