Frequently Asked Questions about Anti Wrinkle Injections

What are anti wrinkle injections?

Anti wrinkle injections are muscle relaxants. A qualified cosmetic clinician can perform anti wrinkle treatments to subtly relax wrinkle-causing muscles. Anti wrinkle injections are popular for smoothing out existing lines. However, young adults can also have treatments to prevent lines from forming in the future.

How long does a treatment take?

For your first appointment we allow 45 minutes, following treatments take only 15 minutes.

How do anti wrinkle injections work?

To understand how anti wrinkle injections work it makes sense to first understand how wrinkles are formed. Wrinkles form 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. This can leave 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 muscle relaxants. So, by relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles, harsh expressions are softened and unwanted lines are reduced.

How long until I see results?

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

How long does it last?

Results last from 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 twenty years. They are safe, fully tested and approved by the TGA.

As with all medical treatments, your overall results will depend on your clinician’s expertise. Artisan’s injectors are all highly qualified with many years of experience.

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, you can have a numbing gel applied prior to treatment if you wish.

What should I expect at my first consultation?

Your first consultation is very important to us because it helps us to understand your concerns & goals. We take the time to understand exactly what you’re wanting to achieve so that we can tailor a treatment program to suit your needs. You can then have a treatment in the same appointment if you wish. Alternately, you can book to have your treatment at a later date that suits you.

Why Artisan?

Natural-looking results: It’s not uncommon to hear new patients comment on how ‘normal’ we all look – almost as if surprised but relieved. This is, sadly, a common misunderstanding about cosmetic treatments. But the truth is that if cosmetic treatments are done well, they can achieve a very natural looking result. At Artisan this is what we strive for.

Many of our clients don’t want to look decades younger – they simply want to look good for their age. We can smooth lines and add volume to facial features for a very naturally refreshed look.

Experience: At Artisan you will only ever see a highly qualified injector who has many years of experience. Our clinicians are considered as some of the most respected injecting specialists in Australia.

Quality: We use gold-standard products that are supplied by the world’s-leading suppliers in cosmetic medicine. We find that these products achieve the most natural looking and long-lasting results for our clients. (TGA regulations prevent us from naming the products we use. If you’d like more information about the products we use and why, feel free to contact us in clinic.)
