Wrinkle treatment with injection
The amount of collagen and elastic fibers gradually decreases from our mid-twenties onwards, causing our skin to lose its elasticity little by little. As a result, the wrinkles that develop because of mimic muscle movements (e.g. frowning, grimacing) become more pronounced.
Injection with a special substance is a suitable treatment for these wrinkles. The treatment temporarily blocks the movement of the muscles responsible for the wrinkles, as the active ingredient temporarily blocks the muscle activity in the area, smoothing the skin. The muscle function is gradually restored over three to four months, which is how long the treatment lasts.
The effectiveness of the treatment becomes apparent after ten days. After that, the muscle gradually regains function. The dosage of the active ingredient is very precise and personalized. A professionally performed treatment will result in a natural and youthful appearance, the face will not become statuesque and stiff.
The treatment is available from the age of 18.
