With a Botox® or Azzalure® wrinkle treatment at our Harley Street or Belsize Park London clinics, within just a few days you will look fresher and younger, and the results will last up to six months. Prevention is always better than cure, so it is recommended to tackle fine lines and wrinkles now before they become too pronounced.
Botox® and Azzalure® wrinkle relaxing injections are the most popular non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate the upper part of the face, and have been used to treat millions of patients worldwide. The treatment known as Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) and Azzalure® are licensed for cosmetic use in the UK for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines.
Botox® and Azzalure® wrinkle treatments do not require any anaesthetic, although if preferred the target area may first be numbed with a cold pack or local anaesthetic cream. Minuscule quantities of Botox or Azzalure are then administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause frown lines. Because an extremely fine needle is used and the treatment only lasts a few minutes, most patients only experience mild and temporary discomfort.
Botox® and Azzalure® work by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces wrinkle-causing muscle activity. As a result, the surface of the skin gradually smoothes out and the unwanted lines start to diminish. Our experienced practitioner will ensure that the correct amount is administered in precisely the right muscles, allowing for normal facial expression and a natural look.
