Liquidation of the following types of wrinkles:

We use only the highest quality preparations of botulinum toxin, the effectiveness and safety of which has been confirmed in clinical trials.
Botox is a substance produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, commonly called botulinum bacilli. It works by blocking so-called neuromuscular transduction – in other words, blocking communication between nerve fibers and muscles. The result is a paralysis of the muscles in the area of toxin administration. The toxin does not damage the nerves or muscles and their full functionality returns after a few months. Botulinum toxin was first used in humans in 1977 and in 1979 it has been officially approved for the treatment of strabismus. Since then, the indications for the use of Botox were gradually extended until 2002, when it has been officially introduced in aesthetic medicine, initially to remove forehead wrinkles.
Botox is used primarily to eliminate mimic – dynamic wrinkles. These are skin folds which occur during movement of facial muscles – called dynamic wrinkles, visible especially when the muscles are at work.
A classic example are the anger wrinkles – at the base of the nose, or so-called crow’s feet – wrinkles around the eyes. Static wrinkles caused by aging, sunlight, or damage resulting from gravity cannot be removed by means of toxins. Botox does not work volumetrically, i.e. does not fill in the different parts of the face. For this type of application hyaluronic acid is used, for example.
Treatment with Botox is performed by a series of delicate microinjections in a given facial area. During the procedure, the smallest available medical needles are used with a syringe, so that the procedure is not very painful. In addition, unpleasant sensations may be reduced by means of anesthetic skin creams. The injection of the preparation takes several seconds.
The effects of Botox – switching off parts of mimic muscles – last up to 6 months. The onset of its action may be observed after a few days after injection, when the patient may first note the smoothing of wrinkles.
