Dysport ®, Azzalure ®, Xeomin ® are the main injections in the treatment of wrinkles, each having slightly different effects and chemical make up to the other. At Firvale, we tend to use Azzalure® for most of our treatments however should you wish to have a different product used this can be arranged. As the effects are more or less the same in the following description of the treatments you can substitute the Azzalure® for any of the other compounds.

Upper Facial Area

Azzalure® treatment is the injection of a very dilute solution of botulinum toxin into small muscles of the face to temporarily paralyse them thus smoothing out lines and wrinkles. The practitioner can be very exact in targeting what muscles they want to reduce the effect of, allowing the muscles which lift the face to work unopposed. Facial lines and wrinkles are targeted by relaxing the muscles in specific areas, particularly between the brows for vertical lines, on the forehead and around the eyes for crow’s feet.

This does not give an expressionless mask like appearance because it is very specific and it’s very important to maintain the correct muscle movements. This treatment lasts between 3 to 6 months and can be preventative. Azzalure® has become very popular as a safe and effective method of dramatically improving the appearance and making the individual look more youthful.

Lower Facial Area

We use Azzalure® on the lower face, to improve the jaw line, to raise the corners of the mouth and for lines around the mouth. At Firvale we also use it for vertical neck bands.

Hyperhidrosis (Reduction of Sweating)

Azzalure® when injected under the arms can reduce excessive sweating. It blocks the nerve signals responsible for sweating therefore preventing the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. This treatment typically gives longer benefits of approximately 6-12 months.

Migraines

Azzalure® can be used to help those who suffer from regular migraines. It enters the nerve endings surrounding the place of injection and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission, preventing the nerves from sending signals that’ll lead to a migraine.

Calf Reduction

Azzalure® when carefully injected evenly across the gastrocnemius muscle can be used to slim the calf. The gastrocnemius muscle is the most superficial calf muscle that is responsible for bulkiness and definition of the calf. Azzalure®, when injected into this muscle, minimises movement and initiates muscle atrophy then which is when the muscle shrinks over time due to lack of movement.
