The botulinum toxin (Botox, Vstabel etc …) injected directly into the small muscles responsible for the wrinkles causes their relaxation and thus the virtual disappearance of the average and light wrinkles. When wrinkles are very deep, it should be infiltrated with hyaluronic acid (Juvéderm®, Teosyal®, Rofilan®, Restylane®, etc.).
The result of the botulinum toxin appears after about 48 hours and lasts between 4 and 6 months. In case of combined injection with hyaluronic acid the result may last a little longer.
The injection is done using mini-needle or flexible cannulas with foam tip and is accompanied by iced application which avoids pains and blues.
Nothing prevents the patient from applying makeup and living her life the same day.
