What we use:
A Guide to Treatment with Azzalure® / Botox / Anti-wrinkle injections
Azzalure® contains a substance, botulinum toxin A, which causes muscles to relax. Azzalure® acts at the junction between the nerves and muscle to prevent the release of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine from the nerve endings. This prevents muscles from contracting. The muscle relaxation is temporary and gradually wears off.
Seeing the Benefits
Some people are distressed when lines appear on their face. Azzalure® can be used in adults to vastly improve the appearance of any moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, ghat form on the face as we age.
Azzalure® normally takes an average of 2-3 days to start working, although it may take up to 2 weeks for the full side effects to be seen. The speed of action will depend on your strength of your facial muscles and your individual response to the injection.
Azzalure® can reduce the severity of lines for up to 4 months and sometimes more. The next treatment date depends on the duration of the effect in each individual patient.
What areas do we treat?
We can use Azzalure to treat various different areas of the face and also under the arms to reduce hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Crows feet (around the eyes)
Glabella (between the eyebrows)
Gummy smile (when too much gum is shown on smiling, affecting appearance of smile)
Chin (stops dimpling of chin when talking/expressing)
Sad or downward smile (releases muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth)
Bunny lines (either side of nose)
Neck (Nefertiti lift)
Also used to treat Bruxism / night grinding that causes pain in the jaw on waking. Azzalure is used to reduce the strength in the masseter muscle, allowing fast relief of pain for up to 4 months. This treatment can also be used to slim the face.
Excessive sweating from armpits can also be treated and stopped with Azzalure.
