Azzalure Wrinkle Reduction in Walsall
Botulinum toxin treatment or ‘Botox’ as it is commonly known, is one of the most popular facial aesthetic treatments available today. Botulinum toxin type A is a naturally occurring bacterial protein that can be injected under the skin into the muscles to reduce wrinkles.
As we age, the elasticity in our skin reduces causing lines and wrinkles to become more apparent. By using Botox anti-wrinkle treatment, it specifically blocks the nerve impulses in the affected areas allowing the muscles to relax.
Azzalure’s botulinum toxin treatment helps to reduce your frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and other smile lines around the face.
One of the most popular areas that can be treated are laughter lines or wrinkles around the eyes. Known as crow’s feet, these wrinkles are extremely noticeable each time you smile and can be reduced to give you a more youthful look.
Other deep wrinkles that can be treated are frown lines, forehead wrinkles and smile lines. These appear constantly throughout the day through various facial expressions and can be smoothed out and toned.
Prior to treatment, make up will be removed and the skin disinfected. Our dentist will then study the facial muscles before applying a local anaesthetic cream to the areas that require injecting. A fine needle is used so the patient will feel very little pain during the treatment process.
Non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments can last three to five months depending on the treated areas and then gradually fade away. Patients can choose to top up anti-wrinkle treatment if they want to keep that youthful look for longer.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with all medicines, side effects can occur but generally this treatment is safe provided you visit a qualified dentist. Any adverse affects are mild and usually caused by the injection itself such as bleeding from the needle injection, bruising, swelling, itchiness and redness on the skin. These side effects may only last a few days.
