Neue Möglichkeiten bei der Behandlung der Glabellafalte
NEW OPTIONS IN THE TREATMENT OF GLABULLAR FROWN LINES
MASSUD HOSSEINI, DÜSSELDORF
KEY WORDS: Azzalure, botulinumtoxin type A, glabullar frown lines, Speywood units
For decades botulinumtoxin has been used successfully and safely in the treatment of various maladies of the nerves and muscles. Vistabel and of late Azzalure are the only botulinumtoxin type A substances approved for use in the treatment of glabullar frown lines. Azzalure was derived from Dysport (Ipsen Pharma) for aesthetic use. Like with Dysport the dosing is specified in so called “Speywood-units”. A especially designed Syringe with a Speywood-unit scaling makes the hitherto conversion to ml unnecessary. This paper describes the treatment of glabullar frown lines with Azzalure.
