Botulinum toxin A (Botox /Azzalure) often referred to as ant- wrinkle or muscle relaxant injections. is a non-surgical, anti-wrinkle treatment used to temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles on the face of both men and women.
It is a prescription only medicine and should only be administered by practitioners with appropriate qualifications, medical training and experience.
The solution is carefully injected in minute amounts into the muscle, this temporarily relaxes the muscles, resulting in a smoother, softer
more youthful appearance.
Unrelated areas are not affected, so you can still smile and frown, but skin on the treated areas will not wrinkle as much.
This treatment can also prevent lines and wrinkles forming in the first place.
The treatment is safe and virtually painless. There is minimum recovery time, which means you can resume your normal activities immediately following treatment.
Effects are visible within 4-10 days and results can last between 3-4 months when the effects will gradually wear off.
Anti-wrinkle injections are mainly used for the upper part of the face such as the forehead, glabella and crow’s feet, however it can also be used to treat the mid and lower face. Treatment in this part of the face is very specialised and therefore not all clinics offer treatment in this area. At the Body Detox Clinic, our advanced aesthetic medical practitioners are highly trained and are able to provide anti-wrinkle injections in the lower face.
