What is Azzalure?
Azzalure®, botulinum toxin type A, has been available in the U.K. since the early 1990's as the brand name Dysport®, which has licences for various indications in 67 countries worldwide, including the United Kingdom and many European markets. Azzalure is one of only a handful of such products to be approved for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe.
It gained approval for cosmetic use in the UK in early 2009 and is marketed for this indication, with dosing specific to treat glabellar (frown) lines, under the brand name Azzalure®. Azzalure® (botulinum toxin Type A), is specifically developed for aesthetic use and the approval was based on several clinical trials involving more than 2,600 patients. This new treatment is adapted from Dysport® (botulinum toxin type-A), which is already marketed by Ipsen for therapeutic indications and has a 20-year long history of product consistency and safety.
How does it work?
It temporarily prevents the release of acetycholine from sympathetic nerve terminals.
How is it administered?
The process takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Azzalure is injected with a fine needle into specific target muscles and produces only minor discomfort. Within a few days there is an improvement in frown lines, helping both men and women achieve a healthier, younger appearance lasting up to 5 months.
Does the injection hurt?
Because the needle is so fine and such small substance quantities are used, the pain is minimal. No sedation or local anesthesia is required.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment takes about 15 minutes, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
How soon will I see results?
It may take two to three days to see an improvement and up to one week to see the overall effects. Then the skin will appear smooth and have a youthful, glowing appearance, allowing you to smile with confidence.
How long will the effects last?
The improvement you will achieve from the procedure will last up to six months. You will notice a gradual fading of its effect, at which point you may return for a new treatment. The early clinical studies indicate that the duration of the treatment's benefits is increased over time so that you should require injections less frequently in the future.
Who can have the treatment?
People from all walks of life can benefit from this revolutionary procedure. Younger people will benefit from the preventative effect of the treatment where more established wrinkles can be reduced or smoothed out completely.
You should not undergo treatment if you are pregnant or breast feeding, or if you suffer from a neuro-muscular disease such as myasthenia gravis or multiple sclerosis. Patients taking Aspirin or blood thinning medication will be more prone to bruising at the injection site.
Are there any side effects?
Botulinum Toxin injections have been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many neurological disorders. Each year thousands of patients receive Botox® treatments for a variety of conditions. Muscle relaxant injections have quickly became a popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of ageing. It is injected in such small quantity that it is not harmful. The most common side effects are temporary and localized bruising, slight redness of the skin and occasionally slight swelling at the injection site. These side effects correct themselves as the product wears off.
How much does it cost?
Treatments start from £200.
Advanced injection techniques and correct product placement can significantly lower the frequency of touch up treatments, as well as the amount of product required in subsequent touch ups to maintain results.
