These techniques are very simple and their success has already been sufficiently demonstrated. They are performed in the course of the consultation. They do not result in work incapacitation and on the whole do not cause any fluid retention or bruising.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is injected to remove any muscle contraction at the place of injection. This allows the patients to maintain their normal facial expressions while reducing the appearance of unaesthetic wrinkles.

Classical indications are « lion wrinkles », which are formed between the eyebrows and which can give an aggressive or unhappy impression, horizontal lines on the forehead and crows’ feet. These are the lines which form at the corners of the eyes and the eyelids.

Work incapacity: none

2 weeks after the first session, the result of the first injection is evaluated as results become gradually obvious between day 3 and day 10.

This check-up visit serves mainly to establish whether the correct dosage has been used which allows the adjustment of the dosage for subsequent injections.

Please, note that after a period of three months the muscle will regain its original strength. If no action is taken the muscle will regain its original capacity around month 6.

The result is completely reversible.

Certain durability can be achieved if during the first year an injection is given every 3 month so that any muscle weakness can be counteracted for one year. In many cases it has been noted that after one year injections can be given at longer intervals and that the dosage of the product can be decreased.

Hyaluronic acid

This is a protein used in filling techniques geared at reducing more or less deep lines which are not necessarily linked to muscle contraction.

The product is injected into the skin layer.

Work incapacity: none

Results last 12 to 18 months..

Just as in the case of botulinum toxin, this effect is completely reversible, which means that the treatment must be repeated if one wants to maintain the required result.
