Botulinum toxin injections – against wrinkles and sweating

By moving facial muscles every day – smiling, frowning, squinting in the sun, the skin loses its firmness and wrinkles form, which makes the face look older. Botulinum toxin, or so-called botulinum is injected into the problematic areas to reduce the intensity of facial muscle movements. As a result of botulinum injections, facial muscles move less, therefore wrinkles appear more slowly.

Intramuscular injections of botulinum type A are performed in problematic areas during the procedure. The effect appears within one to two weeks and lasts for about four months (depending on the customer's individual response).

The effect of botulinum injections is the smoothing of dynamic facial wrinkles and "crow's feet".

Botulinum injections to reduce the signs of aging are performed:

  • in the side corners of the eyes;
  • in the horizontal wrinkles of the forehead.
     

Course duration: botulinum injections are performed on average once every 6 months. The exact number of procedures is determined by a specialist, evaluating each case individually.

Prevention of increased sweating of palms and armpits (hyperhidrosis)

The maximum effect of botulinum injections is observed after two weeks. The effect of the injections lasts for about 6 to 12 months (depending on the patient's individual response). The next injection should be performed no sooner than after three months.

Botulinum injections to reduce increased sweating are performed:

  • in the palms;
  • in the armpits.
     

Duration of the course: on average 1 procedure in 8 months. The number of procedures is determined by a specialist, evaluating each case individually.

Botulinum injections are not performed if the customer:

  • has hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients;
  • has general disorders of muscle activity;
  • has infection in the injection area;
  • uses medications affecting neuromuscular transmission;
  • is pregnant, breastfeeding;
  • has oncological diseases;
  • has uncontrolled and/or uncompensated systemic diseases.
