As we age fine lines and wrinkles appear, especially across the forehead and around the eyes. These lines are caused when overactive muscle movement wears away the collagen in the skin, which in turn causes the skin to crease or wrinkle. A more youthful appearance can be achieved with a non-surgical injectable procedure using Azzalure (commonly known as Botox).
This procedure works by relaxing the muscles, thus preventing wrinkles and smoothing out lines. The treatment is carried out in the practice by our dentists - Dr Janice Brown and Dr Patrick Rea.
- During the treatment your dentist will inject a very small amount of Botox using a tiny needle directly into the muscles that cause the expression lines
- The treatment usually takes about 30 minutes, it is painless and there is no recovery time needed afterwards
- You should begin to see a marked improvement in frown lines in two to three days and the lines continue to improve for up to a month, with your skin appearing smoother
- The results last for up to four months, as Botox is broken down naturally by the body.
