Botulinum toxin injections

In aesthetic medicine, botulinum toxin injections (commonly called Botox® injections) help relax certain muscles causing wrinkles and fine lines. Botulinum toxin is reliable, safe and has been used in medicine for the past 40 years, especially in ophthalmology and neurology. More recently, it has also been used to treat facial expression wrinkles.

Purpose of botulinum toxin injections

Botulinum toxin injections (Botox®) smooth out glabellar frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes and bitterness folds at the corners of the mouth. Botulinum toxin is also used to treat excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis) of the armpits, hands and feet.

Benefits of botulinum toxin injections

Expression wrinkles linked to facial-muscle contractions are smoothed out. The eye area is opened up and the face looks younger.

Expected outcome of botulinum toxin injections

The results are visible after 4 days and last 4-6 months on average.
