Do you want an effective treatment against deep-seated wrinkles or would you like to prevent them? Enjoy smooth, youthful skin thanks to botulinum toxin.
Whether for the prevention of wrinkles or the treatment of existing ones: Botulinum toxin is the secret to eternal youth. Thanks to the treatment with botulinum toxin, your problem areas can be treated easily, painlessly and on an outpatient basis. In no time at all, your face regains its youthful freshness - or it doesn't lose it at all.
The protein botulinum toxin leads to a relaxation of the mimic muscles, and as a result of this muscle relaxation, the overlying skin wrinkles smooth out or even disappear completely for up to 4 months. If no wrinkles are present yet, a preventive treatment with botulinum toxin can protect the skin from the ageing process.

The effect of the substance lasts 4-6 months, depending on the patient, the injection site, the dose and the specific formulation of the botulinum toxin used. The treatment can be repeated as often as desired.
Side effects of botulinum toxin include the following reactions. It is important to note that all side effects - like the effects of botulinum toxin - are temporary. There are no long-term side effects.
Due to constant activity of the mimic muscles, wrinkles can form in the overlying skin over the course of a lifetime, for example frown lines above the nose, forehead wrinkles or laugh lines at the corners of the eyes (known as crow's feet).
Since Botox reduces muscle contraction by blocking the messenger substance needed for this, botulinum injections into the affected muscles lead to relaxation. As a result of the muscle relaxation, the wrinkles also smooth out or disappear completely if they were not too deep yet.
First of all, the patient and doctor decide together which area should be treated and how much.
Then your face is cleaned and disinfected. Then the injection points are planned and marked. Finally, the botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle to temporarily immobilise the muscle and thus smooth the skin.
Botulinum toxin should not be used if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to botulinum neurotoxin or any of the other ingredients (human albumin, sucrose, saline). if you have a general muscle activity disorder (e.g. amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, myopathies) or suffer from gross motor weakness in the treatment area (e.g. Bell's palsy) if your livelihood depends on facial expressions (e.g. actors, singers) if there is an infection or inflammation in the area of the intended injection site, or during a urinary tract infection during pregnancy or breastfeeding if you have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring.
Tell your doctor if: if you have any form of blood clotting disorder and/or if you are being treated with substances that inhibit blood clotting (anticoagulants). if you suffer from severe weakness or tissue atrophy of the muscle into which the medicine is to be injected. If you suffer from conditions that interfere with the interaction of nerves and skeletal muscles (peripheral neuromuscular dysfunction). If you suffer or have suffered from dysphagia. If you have had difficulty with a botulinum toxin type A injection in the past. If you have had or are planning to have an operation.
At HAIR & SKIN you can currently treat the following areas with botulinum toxin: Mimic wrinkles for example on the forehead, frown lines, crow's feet.
After the treatment with botulinum toxin you are immediately fit for work again. You should not massage the injection sites for the first four hours. Avoid saunas, sunbathing, heavy exercise and sports on the day of treatment. Showering, gentle facial cleansing and the application of light make-up, on the other hand, are possible immediately without any problems. You should refrain from drug consumption (including alcohol and nicotine) for two days after the treatment in order not to impair wound healing. You should also avoid sleeping on your face for the first night.
The crows feet include the area on the outer side of your face, surrounding your eyes. The treatment of the crows feet tightens the skin around the eyes.
The frown line covers the area above the bridge of your nose and between your eyebrows. The treatment of this area results in a more relaxed, youthful look.
