How does botulinumtherapy work?

The botulinuminjection is placed into the skin directly where it should develop its effect. You are given an individual dosage, coordinated with your muscular activity. The effect usually lasts about three to six months. Most patients are satisfied with the effect and want another treatment, which can be repeated as often as you want. Botulinumtreatment relaxes the muscle activity of the facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles from facial expression. Its effect is different from filler materials that are also used in wrinkle treatment, often in combination with botulinum toxin. We use hyaluronic acid products, calcium hydroxylapatite, or lipofilling as filler materials.


The mixture is important

The best treatment results are achieved with combination treatments with botulinuminjections and fillers. We first start with the botulinumtherapy, wait at least one week to assess the result of the injections, and then use filler if needed.


Are there other areas of application?

Botulinumtherpy has proven to be especially effective for treating excessive perspiration under the arms. It temporarily inhibits the sweat glands lying right under the skin to allow excessive perspiration to be very effectively controlled. 

Botulinuminjections can also used successfully for treating migraines and chronic stress headaches. 

We explain everything thoroughly in a consultation and find the suitable treatment method for you.


Botulinumtherapy – one of the most frequent cosmetic procedures

Botulinumtherapy is one of the most popular and most frequent cosmetic procedures in the world. The agent relaxes the face, making it look younger and fresher naturally. The areas most often treated are the forehead, the so-called “anger wrinkles”, and eye wrinkles, also known as crow’s feet. In addition, it can be used to treat drooping corners of the mouth, wrinkles on the upper lip, and other regions of the face.
