What is an anti wrinkle injection
Bocouture & Azzalure is a botulinum toxin type-A specifically designed for use in aesthetic indications.
It is a prescription medicine used to temporarily prevent the release of acetylcholine from sympathetic nerve terminals, and so relaxing the injected muscles.
It is a Prescription Only Medicine (POM), and should only be administered
by a trained aesthetic professional.
It is also used aesthetically to treat movement lines in the face which
cause distress including:
Glabella (between the eyes)
Neck Bands (Nefertiti Neck Lift)
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Small doses of the protein is injected into the affected area of the body e.g armpits therefore blocking signals from the brain to the sweat glands reducing the amount of sweat that is being produced. The treatment is not a cure for hyperhidrosis – it only provides temporary relief. It needs to be repeated every three to six months for maximum effect.
How long will it last
Everyone reacts slightly different to muscle relaxing injections . It depends on muscle tone, previous treatments and gender. Static lines which are present when the face is relaxed will soften with the treatment and improve the more treatments are taken but will not completely disappear as they are not caused by movement of muscles .The effects of the treatment can take between 3-14 days, with the optimum effect seen between 7-14 days
The effects can last between 3-6 months, usually starting
to wear off at around 13-16 weeks . For optimum effect it is
recommended to have the next treatment before the
previous treatment completely wears off.
Top-ups are not routinely done but following a review further
treatment can be administered at 2-3 weeks to assess if any
top up required.
A top-up requested beyond 4 weeks will be £50.00
