Our face is constantly in motion – whether we are surprised, angry, surprised or deeply happy. This leaves visible marks in the form of wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, as well as on the neck. You don’t have to put up with crow’s feet, worry lines and deep dimples! The non-invasive treatment with botulinum toxin is an effective method for relaxing the facial muscles and smoothing wrinkles. When used by an experienced doctor, facial expression lines can be significantly reduced or even disappear completely.
The botulinum toxin treatment is a proven, outpatient procedure for the visible smoothing of expression lines. In a detailed consultation with a preliminary examination, the patient’s typical grimaces determine which facial muscles need targeted treatment. Based on the test results, the efficient active ingredient is injected just under the skin of the corresponding areas.
The non-invasive procedure is carried out in Fulda or Frankfurt by the experienced specialist in neurosurgery Dr. med. Nicole David and only takes two to five minutes. The injection is made with the finest needles and is almost painless.
The treatment with botulinum is very well tolerated and hardly visible. In general, the patient can resume his usual activity immediately after the procedure. The smoothing effect usually sets in within around 48 to 72 hours, the maximum effect of botulinum toxin unfolds after one to two weeks.
The constant tension in the facial muscles creates wrinkles that cannot go away on their own. Botulinum toxin prevents the muscles from contracting by blocking the acetylcholine transmitter involved in the contraction. This relaxes the cramped muscles, wrinkles are significantly reduced or even disappear completely.
Botulinum toxin type A is used in modern aesthetic medicine. The biotechnologically obtained protein has proven its worth over many years of use, not least because of the extremely rare side effects. An injection with the high-dose active ingredient should only be given by doctors.
Cross wrinkles on the forehead are also called thinker wrinkles and are usually caused by frequent frowning. With the help of botulinum toxin, not only can the forehead be visibly smoothed, but also forehead wrinkles can be prevented. Botulinum is also suitable for the treatment of glabella wrinkles. The so-called frown lines between the eyebrows often arise as a result of stress or frequent contraction of the eyebrows against the glare of the sun.
The already thin skin around the eyes loses moisture and elasticity with increasing age. The small laugh lines in the corner of the eye can create deep crow’s feet and make the person look older. A botulinum toxin injection can effectively prevent the formation of wrinkles around the eyes.
Botulinum toxin A can also be used to visibly smooth out bunny lines that run across and along the nose bridge. The earlier the targeted treatment of the nasal folds is started, the more effective the effects of a botulinum toxin injection can be. In the case of very pronounced deep wrinkles on the bridge of the nose, supplementary therapy with a filler, such as hyaluronic acid, may be considered.
As you get older, the skin on the neck also loses elasticity, transverse and longitudinal folds form. A botulinum toxin injection can make the sagging skin on the neck look firmer and smoother again. This is known as the Nefertiti Lift against the turkey neck. One week after the therapy, the sagging collars dock again, which also helps to contour the chin line.
Over the years, a strawberry-like skin relief has been shown, especially when the chin is pulled up towards the chin pit; 4 IU botulinum toxin help this to go away after a week!
Migraine patients, pain patients, plagued patients with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) benefit from botulinum toxin treatments, which means an enormous gain in quality of life.
The sustained effect of botulinum injection can vary from patient to patient. In general, the anti-wrinkle effect lasts for around four to six months. After the effect has subsided, the treatment can be repeated any number of times. With regular therapy, there may be a lower need for botulinum toxin with the same effect. Some patients affected by chronic migraines also experience a reduction in annoying headache attacks.
Basically, the gentle and well-tolerated method for smoothing expression lines is suitable for all women and men who like to look younger and more vital and want to counteract signs of aging in the face efficiently.
Botulinum toxin injections should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation. The same applies to some diseases and the use of appropriate medication.
Whether a treatment with botulinum toxin A is suitable for you will be sufficiently clarified in advance in a personal consultation.
Botulinum toxin injections are one of the gentle methods of smoothing wrinkles. Decisive for the success of treatment and a younger, natural looking appearance is the precise determination of the injection points and exact dosage of the active ingredient.
An experienced specialist is therefore the best choice for cosmetic treatments with botulinum toxin. In individual cases, slight bruises and localized swelling at the puncture points can occur after the procedure, which quickly disappear if the affected areas are cooled.
Allergic reactions in the form of itching or a rash occur extremely rarely. Type A botulinum toxin does not produce long-term side effects. The active ingredient has been successfully used in various medical indications for 30 years and is therefore very well researched.
