Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics
Ageing, muscle activity and genetic predisposition contribute to facial lines and wrinkles. The likelihood is also increased by activities such as smoking, alcohol consumption and exposure to the sun. At Fresh Dental, Azzalure® wrinkle reduction treatments are available to reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles. All treatments are performed by Dr. Nav Khaira, a Consultant and Specialist.
Produced by a bacteria, botulinum toxin is a substance that is then refined, purified and diluted. Azzalure®, a commonly used botulinum toxin, is administered via injection in therapeutic doses into specific facial muscles where it acts as a relaxant. Most effective at improving lines and wrinkles in between the eyebrows (frown lines) and on the forehead, Azzalure® prevents the contraction of these muscles.
Treatment takes, in most cases, no longer than twenty minutes. Effects appear within two to three days, with the full extent being visible after ten days. The effects are reviewed for efficacy after two weeks. THE MAXIMUM EFFECT LASTS UPTO 3 MONTHS
Made in a controlled laboratory environment, highly purified, and administered in tiny quantities, Botox is safe and has been used in thousands of patients. Patients are able to resume normal daily activities right away and the improvement is typically visible for up to four months. The effect fades gradually and this is when you may return for another treatment.
Treatment is not recommended if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, hypersensitive or suffering from a neurological illnesss.
Fresh Dental offers dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles that are visible when the muscles are relaxed. All treatments are carried out by Consultant and Specialist, Dr. Nav Khaira.
