8 questions to ask before getting anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today, used by millions of people around the world. When it comes to first time users though, most are interested but understandably wary. That’s because many myths, misnomers and confusion still surround them; even for many people who use them regularly. 

To put those rumours to rest and 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. At Artisan Aesthetic Clinics, we believe in helping you achieve a believable, natural result that simply makes you look refreshed and rejuvenated – not immobile! Each of our highly qualified doctors and registered nurses are trained and experienced in the art of injecting high-quality product into specific muscles that soften and reduce lines, while maintaining mobility and expression. We specialise in techniques that will make your family and friends 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?

Most clients come to fix their ‘angry looking lines’ between their eyebrows, to soften the ‘crow’s feet’ lines around the eyes and those ‘worry lines’ on the forehead. What many clients are unaware of is the many other uses for anti-wrinkle injections. ‘Scrunch lines’ on the nose, the downturn of the mouth, a ‘witchy chin’ and a ‘veiny’ looking neck can also be significantly improved by using small amounts of expertly placed product. 

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. Plus, our team of masters are highly experienced doctors and nurses, so you can rest easy knowing that you’re in very capable hands. We do our very best to ensure your experience is a pleasant one. 

4.Are anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections the same?

A common misconception is that the same product is used to relax muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles that’s used to create a more prominent pout, but in fact they are two very different types of injectables. Anti-wrinkle injections contain small amounts of botulism toxin type A (BTX-A) being administered into specific areas of the face and neck to 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?

How often you need anti-wrinkle injectable treatments varies from person to person, but in most cases, we recommend treatments 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 on millions of people around the world 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.
