Botulinum toxin injections are the fastest and easiest way to fight facial wrinkles. The botulinum toxin injection procedure smoothes the complexion of the facial skin, since the active substance in the botulinum toxin blocks the release of acetylcholine at the injection site, resulting in no muscle reaction. During the procedure, specific areas of the facial mimic muscle forming the wrinkles are exposed. Therefore, it is rejuvenated a few days after the injection effect. Botulinum toxin preparations can be successfully applied not only to correct the already existing mimic and aging wrinkles, but also to prevent their occurrence. Temporary mimic muscle denervation does not cause mimic muscle atrophy, and its function completely recovers after 4-6 months.
Botulinum injections are given for:
- Small wrinkles in the tank area;
- Wrinkles on the back of the nose;
- Forehead mimic wrinkles;
- Wrinkle of “anger”;
- Wrinkles around the lips.

How long does the botulinum injection effect lasts?
