There are a lot of myths and misconceptions around anti-wrinkle injections, so what are the top questions to ask your anti-wrinkle injector?
To help put your mind at ease, we’ve answered the eight most common questions from people considering anti-wrinkle injections.
1.Will I look frozen or fake?
Anti-wrinkle injections can look as dramatic or as subtle as you desire. The quality of the end result comes down to the quality of your anti-wrinkle injector. At Artisan, we believe in helping you achieve a natural rejuvenated result – not immobile! Our highly qualified doctors and registered nurses are experienced in the art of injecting. They inject only the best product into specific muscles that soften and reduce lines, while maintaining mobility and expression. Your family and friends will think you look well rested, taken care of and happy, rather than overdone or fake.
2.Where are anti-wrinkle injections most often used and why?
Anti-wrinkle is commonly used to fix ‘angry lines’ between the eyebrows, ‘crow’s feet’, and ‘worry lines’. There are however many other uses. These include improving ‘scrunch lines’ on the nose, the downturn of the mouth, a ‘witchy chin’ and a ‘veiny’ looking neck.
3.Does it hurt?
A phobia of needles is one of the most common deterrents for people having anti-wrinkle injections, but most of our clients experience very little discomfort, likening the treatment to having their skin momentarily pinched by a pair of tweezers. You’re in very capable hands with our team of highly-experienced doctors and nurses. A skilled anti-wrinkle injector will do their very best to ensure your experience is a pleasant one.
4.Are anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections the same?
Dermal filler and anti-wrinkle are two very different types of injectables. Anti-wrinkle injections weaken the muscle movement, preventing the muscles from contracting to form the wrinkle. Dermal filler injections contain a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, found in skin naturally, that is injected into areas where there is volume loss. The hyaluronic acid attracts water and temporarily fills the void, re-volumising the face and hands.
5.How often do I need anti-wrinkle injections?
The number of treatments you require varies, but in most cases, it’s every three to four months.
6.Are anti-wrinkle injections expensive?
Like any medical treatment, you get what you pay for when it comes to anti-wrinkle injections. At Artisan, we don’t cut corners in order to provide cut-price injectables; we’d rather spend the extra time with you so that we get your treatment just right and you are happy with your results. We also make a point to only use anti-wrinkle injections of the highest quality to ensure longevity and a natural look for our clients. We don’t offer cheap injections using weaker per-unit products or products new to the marketplace.
7.Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
At Artisan, client safety is paramount. We will only treat people aged over 18 and will only use anti-wrinkle injections of the highest quality. The type of muscle relaxant we use is a naturally occurring substance that has been safely used for over two decades. It has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective.
Our anti-wrinkle injections are also only ever administered by our team of highly skilled doctors and nurses, each of whom are masters of their craft with years of experience in the non-invasive medical aesthetics industry. We adhere to the industry’s highest regulations and value the time and effort taken to treat each client individually.
8.When will I see results?
Results can take up to 10 days to be fully visible; but some people begin to notice a difference within 48 hours. We recommend clients have their treatment a fortnight before any special events, to ensure their best results are on show.
