Wrinkle treatment with Botox is a gentle and safe method of reducing wrinkles in the facial area. The most common areas are the forehead, frown line and side eye area.

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin is a protein derived from bacteria. For over a hundred years, the protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum has been used to treat muscular overactivity.
For several decades it has also been used in aesthetic medicine.

Here, by lowering the muscle activity, a relaxation of the muscles is induced, so to speak. This makes the face look smoother and thus more relaxed and, in part, more youthful.

How does Botox work?

The reduction of muscle tension and activity leads to a decrease in mimic wrinkles. On the one hand, the facial skin is relaxed due to the lack of muscle contraction and, on the other hand, the formation of new wrinkles is also prevented.

And how long do the effects of Botox last?

The effect begins after a few days and usually lasts 3 to 4 months. The beginning and the end are gradual, so the effect can be refreshed when the effect first starts to weaken in a smooth transition.

General Information
Typical areas of application

In the face, it is mostly the forehead, the frown line (glabella) and the so-called crow's feet (lateral area around the eyes). Furthermore, botulinum toxin can be used to treat excessive sweating and it also helps with migraines.

Will my face look like a mask?

No. Great care is taken to dose the effect correctly. It is better to leave a certain residual activity of the mimic musculature instead of creating a petrified face.
Likewise, the undesirable effect of the laterally raised eyebrow (Spock) can be avoided by a targeted post-injection.

What does the procedure entail exactly?

First, there is a short conversation between the patient and the surgeon, in order for them to get to know each other. Here, the goals and expectations are formulated. This is followed by a small photo documentation and a risk disclosure. Once everything has been discussed, the actual treatment begins. Finally, a cooling bag is placed on the treated area and there is time to rest a bit more.
