And then there are wrinkles as a symptom of aging, which none of us can avoid. Somehow, however, a young-looking and virtually wrinkle-free face seems to have become a must in our modern society. And the sooner you start the treatment, the higher the chance to have a wrinkle-free face even in old age. What are your options?
Botox is a protein, a “modern classic” used to smoothen wrinkles on the forehead, frown wrinkles (glabella wrinkles), wrinkles around the eyes, in the chin region, on the lower eyelids and on the neckline and cleavage. By applying Botox, the transmission of stimuli from the nerve to the muscles is suppressed. This allows the muscles and the overlying skin to relax. The injection with a very thin needle is virtually pain-free and is additionally soothed by surface anesthesia and cold application. The treatment lasts 5-10 minutes. Final results are not to be expected until four to ten days after the treatment and will last for up to 6 months. The treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure.
