Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox®, is widely used today. It is easy to apply and has a comparably good effect. We mostly use botulinum toxin A for the treatment of wrinkles, especially in the early stages.
Due to the weakening effect it has on the musculature, the skin in the injected area can no longer be pulled into wrinkles. It is often used in the complimentary or supplementary treatment of glabella wrinkles, transverse wrinkles and crow’s feet. The effects last for between three and six months. The more frequently botulinum toxin A is injected, the less frequently the wrinkles reappear.
