Ageing is ruthless to the skin!
As we grow older, muscles begin to loose their tone, we look angry or tired and our eyes become heavy and sad.
Skin looses its elasticity, wrinkles begin to show and, if left untreated, grow deeper and deeper.
Botox®, Dysport® & Xeomin® are all made of Botulinum Toxin Type A and are nowadays considered to be our first line of defence for the ageing face. A treatment with Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTX) gives a fresh, restful and youthful look while, at the same time, effectively treats wrinkles.
BTX is one of the safest and most effective procedures offering your plastic surgeon the option to custom-made your BTX treatment in order to satisfy your personal needs and goals, always providing an impressive but still natural result.
Areas treated with BTX:
Common areas for BTX injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes.
More advanced BTX techniques include injections to the neck, jaw line ( Nefretiti lift), perioral, nose, chin and the masseters.
BTX works by altering the facial muscle contraction beneath the skin that is related to the wrinkles.
Needles used for BTX injections are very thin in order to make the procedure almost pain free.
After BTX, muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out.
The onset of action is typically 1-2 days but can take up to two weeks to take full effect.
The effects of BTX will last approximately three to six months.
