A little more about Botox and Azzalure….
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that is popular worldwide and has been used for more than 20 years. Botox also offers benefits that are beyond merely cosmetic – used by doctors to treat conditions such as muscle spasms, facial tics and excessive sweating.
Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles which appear as a result of repeated movement. Botox is most sought to treat frown lines between your forehead and eyebrows as well as for crow’s feet that appear around the eyes.
The procedure is very straightforward and takes only 15-20 minutes to complete and imposes minimal discomfort as the needle used is fine and solely targets the muscles you would like treated.
One of the brands we use here at Cliftonville is Azzalure which is becoming increasingly popular and treats your skin in a similar way to Botox. Your dentist can advise you on each treatment, so that you can decide which one you would like.
What are dermal fillers?
Whilst Botox is used to relax specific muscles such as crows feet and frown lines, dermal fillers (specifically Juvederm Ultra), are used to give volume that has been lost due to the natural ageing process. The solution is injected into your skin, creating a more youthful-looking appearance.
As with Botox, the procedure can be carried out in a single sitting and takes approximately 30-40 minutes. Many patients opt to have further treatment down the line as they are very happy with the inital results offered.
The ageing process is increased by the following things:
- Excessive drinking.
- Excessive sun exposure.
- Chronic emotional stress.
- Dramatic changes in weight.
The benefits of facial aesthetics summarised:
- Increase your self-confidence by literally, feeling better in your skin!
- The process is quick and non-surgical.
- These treatments have an extremely high success rate.
- Give your skin a healthier look.
