The aging process inevitably leads to the appearance of wrinkles and folds in certain well-defined areas of the face. Aesthetic medicine frequently uses botulinum toxin neuromodulators and injectable dermal fillers to counteract the effects of aging. Neuromodulators act differently from fillers by relaxing specific muscles that making facial lines such as forehead lines
Combined with complementary treatments such as upper or lower blepharoplasty, dermal fillers (Juvederm®, Belotero®, etc.), CO2 laser resurfacing or laser treatment for hyperpigmentation, neuromodulator injections can significantly improve age-related conditions.
A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles. By carefully choosing specific muscles, Dr Boudana and our highly qualified injection nurse weaken only the wrinkle-producing muscles, preserving your natural facial expressions. Botulinum toxin treatment injections usually take less than 15 minutes. The number of injections you need will depend on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for example, usually demand two to three injections. Furrows above your brow could take five or more.
Results can be expected 7-14 days after the treatment, which requires no downtime, unlike other surgical procedures. It is a simple technique that is virtually pain free and fast. Once your injections set in, your expressions will appear more youthful and fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced.
