Botulinum toxin (Botox) is the method of choice for “learned” wrinkles today. Typical examples of this are worry lines on the forehead or frown lines between the eyebrows. Over the course of time, they dig deep into the skin due to the constant play of facial expressions. Botulinum toxin reduces muscle activity for a few months and the skin relaxes. Even deep wrinkles are smoothed out. Through targeted injections into the appropriate muscle, crows’ feet are softened and the brows lifted again. The eye area seems to be open and radiant once more.
Botox can be used in a targeted way for individual “problem zones”, but also as a complement to increasing volume in the face with hyaluronic acid. The effect lasts for approximately four to six months. Afterwards, this can be easily be topped-up.
