Botulinum toxin (Botox) is the method of choice for “learned” wrinkles today. Typical examples of this type of deep wrinkles are worry lines on the forehead or frown lines (the 11s) between the eyebrows. Over time, these creases 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 muscles, crows’ feet are softened and the brows are lifted. 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.
