Are you looking for a proven way to combat lines and wrinkles? What about a safe and virtually pain-free way to take years off your appearance? If you answered ‘yes’ to both questions, then you are in luck. Anti-wrinkle injections have quickly become the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the removal of facial lines and wrinkles, and at Shumaila’s Beauty Essex Azzalure anti-wrinkle injection treatments are affordable, safe and will have your face looking younger immediately.
Wrinkles and facial lines are caused by the loss of elastic tissue between the skin and the muscle. Factors such as lifestyle, diet, genetics, the environment and personal habits including drinking alcohol and smoking can all contribute towards skin aging.
Azzalure is a botulinum toxin type-A used for the temporary improvement in the appearance of facial lines. Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein that works by blocking impulses from the nerves to the facial muscles of the skin, temporarily relaxing them so they don’t move. Used in medicine for many years, botulinum toxin is administered in a way so that it only affects the muscles and does not reach other parts of the body.
Azzalure injections are quick and offer immediate results. The treatment involves making a series of small injections of the toxin into the muscles of the face, namely the forehead and brow, between the eyes and the sides of the eyes. Dermal fillers are also a popular alternative to botulinum toxin treatments, although dermal fillers are made of synthetic materials including collagen and hyaluronic acid. Whilst botulinum toxin affects muscle movement, dermal fillers fill out the grooves, lines and furrows to enhance facial contours.
In a word, no. One reason anti-wrinkle injections are so popular is that no anaesthetic is involved, meaning the treatment is virtually pain-free and takes only a few short minutes. There may be some mild discomfort felt at the injection site, but this will quickly subside with the use of a cold compress. Mild headache shortly after treatment is often common, but again, will subside within 24 hours of treatment. In very rare instances, there may be a risk of infection, bruising, drooping brow or swelling.
The initial effects of anti-wrinkle injections are visible within 48-72 hours; however, the full effect of the treatment is visible within 14 days. Results typically last three to four months, making it ideal for treating frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
After an anti-wrinkle injection treatment, you can continue with your day as normal, although for the first 24 hours it is advised to not touch your face, to avoid having facials, and to refrain from visiting a sauna. Strenuous activities including visiting the gym should also be avoided, in addition to consuming alcohol or taking any pain medication after the treatment. To help speed up the effects of the treatment it is suggested to keep your facial muscles active after the procedure.
Anti-wrinkle injections should be avoided if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to the botulinum toxin, if the injection site is infected, or if you suffer from a neuromuscular disorder such as myasthenia gravis.
Aging is a natural and unavoidable process, but anti-wrinkle injections are the ideal solution to help you feel confident about your appearance again. Say goodbye to facial lines quickly and safely at Shumaila’s Beauty Essex.
