Imagine smooth, younger skin, fewer wrinkles, fuller lips, bolder cheekbones and a look that matches the way you feel. Injectable fillers are non-surgical facial treatments used to slow and hide the effects of aging, and Artisan 57 offers several injectable treatments.
There are many ways to enhance your face’s health and appearance. Injectables are an effective way to diminish stubborn lines, smooth wrinkles, and improve your skin’s firmness. There are two distinct categories of injectables: Neurotoxins and fillers.
The first category of injectables are called neurotoxins and are commonly used in areas of “facial expression” – crow’s feet, furrows between our brows, and horizontal forehead lines. Neurotoxins work by inhibiting muscle contraction in and around these areas. You are probably familiar with Botox, but Xeomin and Dysport also work in a similar way. Neurotoxins are great for not only smoothing and diminishing lines for an average of 3 months but also for preventing the increased intensity of those lines as we age.
Dermal fillers are injectables that do just what their name says – they fill areas of the face to add volume. As the skin ages, it can lose volume in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. For some people, skin in areas like the tear troughs and lips may already be thin. Because these areas of the skin can vary widely and products are always becoming available, an Artisan will help you decide which product is right for you. Fillers vary in “thickness” or “heaviness” that determines which areas of the face they treat and how long they last. All fillers are made of substances we normally have in our bodies, which is why the body is able to absorb and break down these substances over time. This also explains how long fillers usually last – typically from 4 to 12 months.
BOTOX Cosmetic is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States. BOTOX is used as an anti-wrinkle treatment for crow’s feet, frown lines, and furrows in the forehead. It is also used to treat a variety of conditions, including ocular muscle spasms, problems with eye coordination, severe underarm perspiration, and migraine headaches.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments are one of the greatest advancements yet in the treatment and prevention of facial wrinkles. Millions of BOTOX Cosmetic procedures have been performed, making it one of the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedures in the United States. BOTOX Cosmetic can be used before or after any cosmetic surgery procedure, or in conjunction with other med spa services.
There is no recovery period, and you can even have a treatment on your lunch break. Wrinkles will smooth out a few days after treatment and typical results last about 4 months. As time goes on, the results may begin to last longer. The effect on forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet can be remarkable – and BOTOX Cosmetic can even be used to elevate drooping eyebrows.
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient is XEOMIN – acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead between your brows. If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines, XEOMIN may be right for you. At Artisan 57, our licensed medical provider will discuss the benefits and risks of treatment during our initial consultation.
Artisan 57 offers Juvéderm XC Ultra Plus, a version that will reduce the appearance of medium or deep lines and wrinkles (like the lip-to-nose-line), fill acne scars or add volume to lips, earlobes and cheekbones. Hyaluronic acid absorbs water in the injected area adding volume and smoothing the skin. Each procedure includes lidocaine, an anesthetic that reduces pain associated with injection, and the results will last about 1 year.
Artisan 57 carries the following Juvéderm lines:

Radiesse is used to diminish moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, like the ones that form between the nose and lip. Radiesse can also add volume to cheekbones. Radiesse works by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen with calcium-based microspheres. This gel also plumps and smooths the injected area. Enjoy the results for a year or longer without needing touch-ups.

KYBELLA is the first and only approved injectable for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness.
Submental fullness, also referred to as double chin, is a common yet under-treated condition. This affects adults - both women and men of all ages, weight and gender. This can be influenced by multiple factors including aging and genetic. Unfortunately, submental fullness is often resistant to diet and exercise.
Kybella is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When we inject Kybella into the subcutaneous fat, it causes the destruction of those fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
