The botulinum treatment for expression wrinkles is one of the most popular and common aesthetic procedures worldwide. The active ingredient specifically relaxes individual muscles of the face, making it look fresher and more vibrant in a natural way. Wrinkles on the forehead (thinking wrinkles), glabella wrinkles (frown lines), and eye wrinkles (crow's feet or laughter lines) are treated most frequently. In addition, the active ingredient is suitable for the treatment of hanging corners of the mouth, wrinkles on the upper lip and other regions of the face.

Expression lines on the face are considered bothersome by many people who value a lively appearance. Wrinkles can also be treated without a classic facelift - with Botulinum! The treatment we offer at our specialist practice in Düsseldorf is tailored to your individual needs and requirements.

1. What is botulinum or botulinum toxin?

Botulinum or botulinum toxin (a neurotoxic protein) belongs to the group of active substances used for muscle relaxants. It is extracted from the toxin of the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The toxin blocks the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from cholinergic nerve endings. This leads to a flaccid paralysis of the skeletal muscles. The botulinum is injected locally intramuscularly with a very fine needle at various points for the temporary treatment of facial wrinkles.

2. How does a wrinkle treatment with botulinum work?

The botulinum is injected directly into the skin at the place where it needs to take effect. You will receive an exact dosage that will adapt to your muscle activity. The treatment typically lasts about three to six months. Most patients are very satisfied with the results and request follow-up treatments, which can be repeated as often as they wish.

The botulinum relaxes the muscle activity of the facial muscles that are responsible for expression wrinkles. However, it has a different effect than filler substances, which are also used in wrinkle treatment and often in combination. We use hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite or autologous fat as filling substances.

3. Which wrinkles can be treated with botulinum?

Botulinum is suitable for the treatment of expression wrinkles and is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world. Wrinkles on the forehead are most frequently injected. These include worry lines or the forked wrinkle known as frown lines.

Eye wrinkles such as crow's feet or laugh lines can also be successfully reduced with Botulinum facial treatment.

Botulinum toxin is also suitable for the treatment of drooping corners of the mouth, wrinkles on the upper lip and other regions of the face. Feeling or the sense of touch are not affected by the application of botulinum. The application has a different effect than filling substances such as collagen, which are also used for wrinkle treatment or can be combined with wrinkle injections. 

Further FAQ

How long does it take until the effects are visible after a wrinkle treatment with Botulinum?

The botulinum is injected directly into the skin at the desired location. The specific dosage is adjusted to the personal muscle activity and the intended outcome of the anti-wrinkle injection occurs within a few days. The botulinum relaxes the muscle activity of the facial muscles responsible for expression lines and the skin becomes visibly smoother.

How long does the effect of Botulinum last?

Experience shows that the effect of Botulinum injections, which occurs after a few days, lasts for three to six months. Follow-up treatment is requested by highly satisfied patients and can be repeated as often as desired. In this respect, a result similar to that of a facelift can be achieved, but with considerably less medical effort.

What other areas of application are there for botulinum toxin?

Botulinum treatment has proven to be very effective in the treatment of excessive sweating in the armpit. It temporarily inhibits the sweat glands located directly under the skin so that excessive sweat production can be effectively slowed down.

Botulinum injections are also successfully used in the treatment of migraine and chronic tension headaches.
