Ask a nurse: your guide to cosmetic injectables

Posted on

Often when you think of injectables, you think of two treatments—anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections.

Today, thanks to advances in technology, the number of cosmetic injectable treatments has significantly increased.

We asked Artisan Clinics (Canberra’s local clinic with over 14 years’ combined experience) to give us their handy guide to cosmetic injectables to help you decide which treatment might be right for you.


The classic cosmetic injection. This type of cosmetic injection relaxes the muscles responsible for creating frown lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and scrunch lines.

They help to give you a smoother, tighter and more lifted complexion.


This kind of injection is perfect for enhancing your cheeks and lips and restoring lost volume.

Containing hyaluronic acid (which occurs naturally in our skin), this treatment work to stabilise skin structure, boost hydration, and improve elasticity.

They also stimulate skin rejuvenation, leaving you with a fresh and radiant appearance.


These are the perfect way to instantly inject hydration back into tired and dull skin.

They are micro injections of dermal filler that are injected into the skin, rather than underneath the skin like most filler treatments.

They work to reintroduce hyaluronic acid into the skin which promotes new collagen and elastin, bringing deep hydration that results in healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin.


Sometimes you can eat healthy and exercise regularly and still not budge stubborn fat. Enter fat dissolving injections.

Often described as ‘non-surgical liposuction’, these injections can help to reduce fat without surgery or downtime.

They target and effectively reduce small and stubborn fat pockets, providing a tight and more contoured appearance.

They can be administered anywhere where there are small, defined fat pockets, including your hips, thighs and stomach.


Get rid of that stubborn double chin with our chin sculpting injections. These injections contain a synthesised deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown of dietary fat.

They work to destroy and permanently eliminate fat from under the chin, reducing fat and contouring your jawline for a more refined appearance.   


If it’s total skin rejuvenation you’re looking for, then this is the treatment for you.

A simple and safe treatment, this treatment involves drawing a small amount of your blood. This is then spun to separate the platelet-rich plasma component, which is then injected into the treatment area.

It works to stimulate the body’s normal healing response, boosting collagen, improving texture and tone, and reducing fine lines and scarring.
