Botulinum toxin is a product that puts muscles to rest by blocking the transmission of signals between the nerve and the muscle. If used with properly, botulinum toxin is an excellent product to treat the so called dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form mainly when the expression muscles contract. Typical examples are the wrinkles of the forehead, the frown wrinkles, and the wrinkles of the crow’s feet next to the eyes.
For deeper wrinkles, or passive wrinkles, rather related to sagging, for example nasolabial folds, the treatment of choice would be hyaluronic acid.
In some cases, a subtle combination of the two techniques enables even better results and a natural look at the same time.
The effect of botulinum toxin on muscle contraction is transient, lasting from 3 to 6 months.
In experienced hands, Botulinic toxin can also help you to opening your eyes by gently lifting your eyebrows, lifting the corners of the mouth, reducing your peri-oral wrinkles, correcting a gummy smile and improve the peau d’orange skin on the chin.
