Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as anti-aging or cosmetic wrinkle injections, are the most powerful tool to treat facial lines and wrinkles. Made from a natural purified protein, these extremely small injections subtly relax specifically targeted muscles to help smooth out wrinkles and prevent more from forming.

Anti-wrinkle injections in a nutshell

Anti-wrinkle injections are a muscle relaxant and they can be strategically injected by your Artisan clinician to relax wrinkle-causing muscles:

  • To smooth out existing lines and wrinkles that have formed over time
  • As an early intervention to prevent your facial expressions from forming permanent lines in the future
  • To treat excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) with a few tiny injections in the underarms

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

To understand how anti-wrinkles injections work it is first necessary to understand how wrinkles are formed. There are two kinds of facial lines; static and dynamic. Dynamic lines appear only when our face is making different facial expressions for example when smiling or frowning. Static lines are always present, even when the face is at rest.

Over time, facial muscles decrease in strength and tone, reducing support for surrounding tissue. Combined with a loss of skin elasticity, expression lines that used to bounce back into smooth skin now remain visible when your face is at rest – leaving you looking stressed, angry or tired when you actually feel fine.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a muscle relaxant and they can be strategically injected by your Artisan Clinician to relax wrinkle-causing muscles to treat static lines, dynamic lines and hyperhidrosis.

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.
