The demand and popularity of minimally invasive treatments has increased significantly in recent years. This includes the wrinkle treatment with Botox, which can achieve a harmonious and rejuvenated appearance without the need for surgery. Expression lines, which are considered disturbing, including the so-called frown line between the eyebrows or the so-called crow’s feet on the side of the eyes, can be effectively smoothed out with the help of Botox. The active ingredient in it inhibits muscle activity and ensures that the wrinkle is not visible anymore.

What age is best for Botox?
In principle, injections treatments with Botox® – or another established botulinum toxin agent such as Azzalure® or Xeomin® – are possible from the age of 18. As a rule, wrinkles form in the course of the natural ageing process. Usually the first expression lines wrinkles are visible around the age of 30. If women or men find them disturbing and unaesthetic, treatment with Botox® can be considered.
It is contraindicated if you are allergic to any of the ingredients; are pregnant or breastfeeding; have a neuromuscular disorder or if the injection site is infected.

The most frequently treated areas are wrinkles of the upper third of the face, i.e. around the eyes and on the forehead.

How long does the effect of anti-wrinkle Botox last?
The duration of the effect of Botox for anti-wrinkle treatment can vary from patient to patient and also depends on the particular active ingredient used. In general, the effect of Botox lasts about four to six months.

Does Botox work on existing wrinkles?
Yes, but if these wrinkles are not mimic wrinkles, which are activated by the movement of the facial muscles and can deepen over time, but rather wrinkles caused by gravity, Botox is usually not the treatment of choice.

In addition, treatment with hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulation with Ellansé® can also replace lost volume. A further treatment option is thread lifting.

Botox treatment is a relatively low risk method for anti-wrinkle treatment when provided by a specially trained and experienced doctor.
After the injection, redness and swelling more or less recedes within a few minutes. Sometimes small superficial bruises can also occur, which disappear within a few days. In rare cases, headaches may occur temporarily (1-2 days).
Allergic reactions, itching or rashes are extremely rare.
In exceptional cases, complications such as temporary drooping of the eyebrow or upper eyelid may occur. The more experienced the injecting physician, the less likely these complaints are. Infections or temporary paralysis occur very rarely.
