During the mimic movements of the face, muscles contract and skin folds and dynamic wrinkles are formed, especially around the eyes and on the forehead ("crow's feet," vertical furrow line). The best way to eliminate these wrinkles is by injecting them with botulinum toxin (Botox) or filling them with hyaluronic acid.
Botox rapidly and effectively removes wrinkles. It acts by blocking neuromuscular impulse transmission and its effects are maintained for 4 to 6 months. The treatment is carried out after a consultation during which contraindications are ruled out, the area to be treated is established and the dose of the product is determined. Botox is given in several injections into the treated area. The treatment is associated with mild pain, so the areas to be treated need not be numbed with a local anaesthetic.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient of the skin, where it is responsible for maintaining an appropriately high level of moisture. It is found in all living organisms and its major function is to bind and store water in tissues. Unfortunately, with age, hyaluronic acid is gradually absorbed. If the skin becomes deficient in hyaluronic acid, it gets dry and wrinkles form. The hyaluronic acid injected during a treatment session fully integrates with the skin and does not interfere in any way with the natural functions of this organ, allowing a natural free flow of nutrients. With time, the injected hyaluronic acid slowly degrades, providing the skin with moisture and nutrition as the process progresses.
Thanks to hyaluronic acid injections it is possible to:
- smooth out and remove "crow's feet,"
- smooth out your forehead by getting rid of "worry lines,"
- flatten the nasolabial lines and the marionette lines,
- enhance the volume of your lips and correct your lip borders,
- elevate your lip corners.
