Botulinumtoxin is one of the most popular treatment against wrinkles especially in the upper third of the face. These static wrinkles are caused from the continuous movement of the upper face muscles. Botulinumtoxin relaxes the muscles thus fainting the wrinkles. It is a safe treatment that is used over 30 years from dermatologists for this purpose. Approximatelly 7-10 days after the treatment the face looks more fresh and shiny due to the reduction of the wrinkles.
It is administered through small injections especially on forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and the mouth.
Other indications for botulinum toxin are chronic migrains and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
The effect of botulinumtoxin lasts usually 4-6 months.
Before starting a treatment we suggest a clinical evaluation with the doctor in order to discuss your needs and goals and create a treatment plan suitable for your face.
