Most people know the benefits of Anti-Wrinkle treatments to the forehead and around the eyes. It allows you to restore a more youthful appearance by smoothing out wrinkles that are created through dynamic movement i.e. through expression. Typically everyone knows and recognises this treatment as Botox however there are other products such as Azzalure which we use to have the same effect on the upper part of the face.
Typically these treatments are used to relax forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet around the eyes.
For both of these products Contour Couture are able to provide this treatment in both its Birmingham and Bristol clinics.
Pricing for these treatments are as follows:
One area £120 (50x units); Two areas £190 (100x units); Three areas £230 (150x units)
One area £160 (20x units); Two areas £230 (40x units); Three areas £280 (60x units)
Note: 50x Azzalure units equals 20x Botox

Chin muscles that pull too hard result in small irregularities, known as ‘orange peel skin’ or ‘golf ball chin’.

Treatment costs £90-£125 and includes 4-15 units of Botox
Drooping eyebrows can make a person look tired or ill-tempered. In addition, sinking eyebrows can feel like pressure on the eyes.

This treatment takes 2 days to 2 weeks to take effect and lasts up to 4 months.

Botox can partially relax your masseter muscles which in turn reduces the size of these muscles, then slims the jawline. This then brings out the V-line in your face, making your face appear more feminine, youthful and slender, whilst also emphasizing your cheekbones.
This works because the Botox treatment reduces activity in the masseters that allows the muscle size to reduce. It generally takes 4-8 weeks to make out a difference and the treatment will wear off after 3-4 months after which your masseters will be able to increase in size and activity again, so additional treatment will stop this and allow your jaw to slim down further however the reduced jawline may stay the same for anywhere between 6-18 months depending on the increased muscle activity.
Treatment costs £275 and includes 65 units of Botox

This is a treatment that helps excessive sweating under the armpits and on the palms of your hands.
The glands responsible for perspiration in these areas work more intensely in some people than in others, causing more perspiration. After treatment, Botox blocks the nerves that control our sweat glands, which stops them from producing sweat. It will generally take between two days to two weeks for your armpits/hands to stop sweating excessively.
