Azzalure is a brand name for a toxin isolated from the bacteria Chlostridium Botulinum. Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that is injected in micro amounts into the small muscles of the face to relax and smooth out lines. Millions of people worldwide have used botulinum injections to reduce facial wrinkles and it now has FDA approval for use in cosmetic medicine
At Hurst Park Aesthetics, we use Botulinum to treat:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Laughter lines/Crows’ feet
- Excess Sweating (Hyperhydrosis)
- Drooping Eyebrows (Brow Lift)
- Décolletage Lines
What can I expect…
Treatments take approximately 15 minutes. The botulinum is injected into carefully selected facial muscles with very fine needles so that it is virtually painless. After treatments you can carry on with your normal daily activities, however we advise that you avoid anything too strenuous such as heavy exercise and avoid sun tanning and facials for the first week post treatment.
When will I see results…
On average it takes 2-14 days for the results to become noticeable. At Hurst Park Aesthetics we offer everyone a review at 2 weeks to ensure the desired results have been achieved. Any additional treatment requirements to ensure optimal results will be carried out on the 2 week follow-up appointment
How long will treatment last…
Treatment lasts on average 4-5 months. This will depend on the individual patient and if post operative instructions are adhered to
When is treatment contraindicated…
It is not recommended that pregnant or breastfeeding women have botulinum treatments. Some (less commonly used) antibiotics should not be taken at the same time as your botulinum treatments, please ask your practitioner if you need further information. Anyone with a neuromuscular disorder should not have botulinum injections. Your practitioner can advise you further about these cautions.
