Botulin toxin


(Botox®, Azzalure®, Boccouture®)

What are mimic wrinkles?

Smiling young woman on white backgroundThe ageing process is accompanied by formation of static and mimic wrinkles, the latter also called expression lines.

Static wrinkles are caused by the loss of skin original volume (e.g. nasolabial folds). Mimic wrinkles are the effect of excessive activity of facial expression muscles – e.g. horizontal forehead lines or crow’s feet.

Why are expression lines formed?

When a human face shows emotions, the muscles shrink causing the development of wrinkles and lines. Similarly, the same happens, when we smile, squint or concentrate.

With the passage of time, when our skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles deepen and become permanent (not only during grimacing, but also when we relax). And so, for example, lines between eyebrows make us look as if we were angry, even though we are not.


How can we prevent the process?

Botulinum toxin type A, when injected into the muscles responsible for wrinkles, helps them relax, causes that the lines and folds soften and gives your face more refreshed look. 

BOTOX® is the first in the world, most profoundly analysed botulinum toxin widely accepted for the application in the treatment of hyperhidrosis.

Who can benefit from treatment with botulinum toxin?

The treatment is successfully applied in patients with present expression lines of various degree of severity. However, it can also be a preventative treatment, maintaining firm skin in patients with or without the first signs of skin ageing. Then only minimal doses are used to obtain the most subtle and discrete effect.

When are the first effects visible?

First results are noticeable after about 2-3 days, while full effect can be admired about a week from the procedure.

BOTOX® has been appreciated already for over 20 years now as a result of experience and safety of use.

What does the procedure look like?

During the procedure, the doctor, using a very fine needle, injects small doses of botulinum toxin into the particular muscle responsible for the formation of a certain wrinkle. The treatment is practically painless, though in pain sensitive patients the target skin area can be numbed with local anaesthetic (Emla cream). After about 7-14 days patients come for a follow-up consultation, when the final, desired effect is being perfected.azzal

On the 30th day following the treatment – 90% of patients

On the 120th day – 86% of patients


How long does the effect last?

The results last for about 4-6 months.

After this period facial expression and muscle activity returns. Although, formation of lines and wrinkles caused by the contraction of those muscles develops much later. And so, despite activation of facial expression the face still remains smoothed and the treatment effects are visible.

The procedure should not be administered more often than every three months.
