Botox® is the most famous brand of Botulinum Toxin which is a chemical typically used in facial muscles to treat wrinkles such as lines on the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet. It has been used for this purpose for over 20 years.
At NU-U we use a brand of botulinum toxin called Azzalure®. This is a widely used, pure and highly tested brand that is recommended by Doctors all over the world due to its great safety profile and its long-lasting effects. It is used for both cosmetic treatments and in hospitals for medical treatments.
Our Doctors have advanced training in facial anatomy and injection techniques which allow us to achieve the desired effects consistently and safely. We aim to create a natural, more youthful look which is achieved by our experience and skill. We use Azzalure® cosmetically for Crow’s feet, Dimpled chin, Drooping mouth corners, Forehead lines, Frown lines, Gummy smile, Jaw pain, Vertical lip lines and a Wide jaw. Our doctors also use it to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) anywhere on the body, Migraines, Muscular neck pains, Teeth grinding and Tension headaches. We are experienced in treating the anatomy of both men and women and this experience ensures our clients look natural.
What to expect
Small quantities of Azzalure® are injected into selected facial muscles with a very small fine needle. This relaxes the muscles, thereby smoothing out of the skin and it minimises creases, lines and wrinkles. If used regularly botulinum toxin can lead to fewer wrinkles forming over time, thus keeping a youthful look for longer even after the use of this treatment has ceased. When used in other areas of the body (e.g. the armpit) the same treatment is used to resolve excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis). Small amounts of Azzalure® are injected to stop the glands from producing sweat.
We review our aesthetics clients after 3 weeks to ensure they are completely happy with the results. The treatment usually takes around 2-3 weeks to have its maximal effect and lasts approximately 3-4 months in facial muscles but much longer in sweat glands.
We recommend not applying excessive heat to the area treated and not rubbing the area too much as this may dilute the effect of the treatment. If there are any small adjustments a client wants this can be done at the review appointment and these are usually undertaken without further charge.
What areas of the body can be treated with Botox® for Hyperhidrosis?
We are able to treat any area of skin for hyperhidrosis. Whether it is under arms, foreheads, palms or even your feet.
How long does treatment usually last for Hyperhidrosis?
Most clients will get 5-6 dry months with their treatment. It may however last longer in some cases.
Are there any side effects?
For Hyperhidrosis there are very few side effects a client may experience with the treatment. The main concern clients have is that they may sweat more from other areas. There is only a very small risk of this occurring.
I cannot recommend NU-U highly enough. I have had my “Vampire Facelift” done by both Dr Rai and Dr Punater and each time it has had an amazing effect on my skin. I’m so glad I have found these doctors. They are welcoming and know exactly how to make your skin so much more radiant.
Excellent. I went to NU-U just before my wedding due to some frown lines. My treatment was amazing start to finish. Everything I was worried about was carefully looked at and precisely corrected.
PRP here is the best I’ve ever had! I have to get PRP done on my hair following a hair transplant. Lots of my friends have had very painful experiences with scalp PRP. Dr Rai does my treatment with a fast machine and it is so much better than the places I visited in London.
Excellent service. I’ve had several different treatments from Dr Punater at NU-U. Each one has given great results and I’ve been amazed at how easy he makes everything look. This is definitely the best place I have been to for cosmetic treatments.
From the moment I was greeted by Dr Rai I felt I was in safe hands. This is an amazing clinic where they really aim to look after you and I wouldn’t trust anyone other than Dr Rai now. The botox injections I had were far less painful and gave a much better result than anywhere I’ve been before. Would highly recommend NU-U to everyone.
Great Professional Service! I felt at ease with these guys. Very caring, professional and explained everything to me. Gave me my options and guided me through what would be best for my skin. I’ve not been to other clinics and having chosen this one I don’t think I’d ever go anywhere else.
