Over time, this continual movement can create creases and lines on our faces.
Furthermore, as we age, the level of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually depletes, causing our skin to become less elastic.
Wrinkle correction treatments work to reduce muscular activity beneath the skin, helping to smooth out lines and creases and prevent them reforming.
At Shawlands Dental Care, we offer Azzalure® to our patients seeking wrinkle correction. Azzalure® is made from botulinum toxin type A, a protein derived from bacteria called Clostridium botulinum.
When injected into problem areas on the face, Azzalure® helps to prevent nerve stimulation, relaxing the muscles and lessening their movement.
Azzalure® can be used to treat wrinkles:
We can also use wrinkle correction treatments to decrease movement in hyperactive jaw muscles, reducing the symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder.
Wrinkle correction treatments typically last for 4-6 months. Many of our patients incorporate an Azzalure® session into their regular 6-monthly cleaning appointments.
