Botulinum toxin

The injection of botulinum toxin is a simple, non-surgical therapeutic method used for the temporal smoothing out of the moderate and intermediate facial wrinkles (laughter / worry lines).

The toxin works only in the field of the muscle, which it has been injected to, while the function of remaining muscles remains unchanged. This substance is used to prevent the formation and to smooth away the existing crosswise wrinkles on the forehead, the wrinkles between the eyebrows, so-called “lion’s furrows”, the wrinkles around the eyes, so-called “crow’s feet” and the wrinkles in other areas: the lower eyelid, around the lips, chin and neck. After the treatment, the result of rejuvenating and refreshing the appearance as well as smoothing out or a substantial wrinkles shallowing, is observed, lasting for about 4-6 months. The procedure can be repeated every 5 – 8 months.

Indications for the treatment with botulinum toxin:

  • Removal of mimic wrinkles

The course of treatment:
