Frequently Asked Questions
Is a newly developed botulinum toxin similar to the brand name Botox®. Botulinum is a liquid that can be injected under the skin and can temporarily relax wrinkles in the forehead and eyebrows as well as the corners of the eyes sometimes known as crows’ feet. It can do this by weakening the facial muscles, thereby reducing the ability of the muscles to contract and wrinkle the skin. This effect is temporary. It can be used to treat wrinkles that have already formed and also as a preventative treatment to stop wrinkles forming in the long term.

What are the risks of Azzalure® therapy?

Less common effects could be drooping of the upper eyelid or eyebrow. You should not use this treatment if you have a nerve or muscle disease, are pregnant or at risk of being pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
How is it done?
The areas to be treated are cleansed with alcohol wipes and then tiny amounts of botulinum are injected into specific areas. This could be in between the brows, above the brows, at the side of the head near the eyes and lips.
How long until I see results?
You may notice the treated muscles weakening after 3 to 5 days but the full effect will take about up to 2 weeks.
How long does it last?
All treatments vary from a minimum of 3 months - 9 months
I am young, why should I consider Botox?
Botox is not only an excellent treatment for existing wrinkles, it can help prevent or lessen the effects of future wrinkles as well. By reducing the amount of movement in the muscles beneath your skin, Botox treatments will preserve the structure of the collagen beneath your skin and prevent wrinkles from forming or deepening.
