Botulinum toxin is gently introduced into the mimic musculature. The dosage is of decisive importance.
The relaxation of the facial muscles begins after two to seven days. Your facial expression becomes more relaxed. Thanks to the relaxation of the muscles, the overlying skin – thanks to Botox – is now smooth and the wrinkles have disappeared.
Botulinum toxin is very effective against the so-called frown lines: The contraction of the eyebrows during stress and tension leads to a strengthening of the musculature, which gives a bad facial expression. By relaxing the muscles between the eyebrows, the relaxation is reported back to the brain and you feel liberated. In addition, your face appears more open.
The use of botulinum toxin is also ideal in the area of forehead wrinkles and laugh lines, but also to make the eyes appear larger and in smoking-induced mouth wrinkles.
Numerous studies have shown a positive effect on migraine and depression.
