One of the main reasons why our faces wrinkle as we get older is the constant creasing of our skin when we smile; raise our eyebrows, squint or frown. This is made much worse if the skin is already damaged by the sun or smoking.
Botox and Azzalure should be seen as a preventive treatment which means that over the years your wrinkles will not worsen but actually improve.
Firstly, Botox and Azzalure are virtually the same product manufactured by different companies. In general, the use of Azzalure is more common in Europe whereas Botox is used more in the USA. Many millions of injections of Botox or Azzalure are administered worldwide each year for cosmetic purposes.
Botox and Azzalure at the correct dose will relax the facial muscles, giving a smoother looking skin, and reducing wrinkles (by the way, the dermatological term for wrinkles is “rhytids”)
Botox and Azzalure are not permanent and depending on the individual and the dose given, normally lasts between 4 to 6 months. However, the latest research is now showing that over a period of time less Botox or Azzalure can be used to achieve the same satisfying clinical results.
Botox and Azzalure work best in the following upper areas of the face:
- Forehead lines (worry lines)
- The area around the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet)
- The frowning lines between the eyebrows (elevenses)
Every face is different with varying levels of muscle activity and therefore degree of wrinkling.
That is why the experienced clinician should assess each individual correctly. A good example of this is that the height and shape of the eyebrows can be adjusted using Botox or Azzalure to meet the individual’s requirements.
The cosmetic clinic for Botox/Azzalure and facial fillers is based at Shadow Lawn, Garden Close Lane, Newbury, Berkshire in private surroundings where confidentially can easily be maintained. Dr Peter Lawson is experienced in providing wrinkle reduction for crow’s feet, worry lines, frown lines and other wrinkles around the face. Also, Dr Peter Lawson uses lip fillers for fuller better looking lips, cheek fillers, fillers for tear troughs, marionette lines, nasolabial folds and Jowls.
