Botox Smoothes Expression Lines

The tension blocker Botulinumtoxin, colloquially called Botox® from the product by the American manufacturer Allergan, is used by the skin experts at Rosenpark Clinic to effectively smoothen expression lines in the face.

Botulinumtoxin is used by the skin experts at Rosenpark Clinic to effectively smoothen expression lines in the face. The tension blocker is approved as a drug in Aesthetic Dermatology. The following areas can be successfully treated with low doses of Botox®

  • Frown wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Furrows on the forehead
  • Crow's feet at the outer angle of the eye
  • Lip wrinkles
  • Drooping corners of the mouth
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Neck

Botox® is freqently used colloquially as a synonym for different botulinumtoxin products, although Botox® is the product from the American manufacturer Allergan. 

Technically speaking, it refers to the protein botulinum type A. Botulinum preparations have different product names – depending on whether they are used for aesthetic treatments or used in medicine:

Vistabel® (Allergan)

   Botox® (Allergan)

Azzalure® (Galderma)

At Rosenpark Clinic, we exclusively use the botulinium products approved in Germany, Vistabel®, Bocouture® and Azzalure®. They give the face a relaxed expression back. Our dermatologists and Botox® experts at Rosenpark Clinic place great value on a natural look: With specialized experience and detailed knowledge of facial anatomy, they ensure that you retain your natural facial expressions.

How does Botox work?

Botox®works like a brake for the muscles. For approximately four to six months, it inhibits the release of so-called messengers which in turn enable the muscles to contract. The parts of the muscles treated can relax and the overlying skin smoothes out. Lines and wrinkles not only decrease but Botox® also prevents the formation of new wrinkles.

Is Botox a safe active agent?

Neurological diseases have been treated with Botox® for decades. Numerous studies prove the safety of the active ingredient. However, a fraction of the dose is sufficient for anti-aging treatments. In addition, it is very heavily diluted. Thus botulinum type A, a proven, low-risk anti-wrinkle agent, should be considered indispensable in aesthetic dermatology. It is also successfully used for the treatment of excessive sweating and migraines. Botox® should only be used by physicians - as it is a drug.

How is the treatment administered?

A highly diluted dose of Botox® is injected in the muscles to be treated using a very thin needle. Apart from a few, very small injection sites which can no longer be seen after a few minutes, the treatment does not leave any marks. Patients can immediately resume their normal daily activities.

Will the Botox treatment be repeated?

The skin-smoothening effect gradually begins within seven to ten days after treatment. Over the course of time, the body metabolizes the protein. The muscle slowly regains mobility. Since the effect completely subsides after four to six months, it is recommended that the Botox® treatment be repeated. After multiple follow-up treatments, a significant decrease in the depth of the wrinkles can be observed.

Expert tip:

Dr. Birgit Buxmeyer: "I myself rely on Botox®. It is a drug that has undergone extensive research and treatment is quick. But less is more: I don't think it is attractive if no movement at all is possible by the muscle."

What else can you do?

  • Depending on the type and depth of the wrinkles, fillers such as hyaluronic acid, Radiesse® or poly-L lactic acid are also suitable for injection. Sunken areas of the face regain more volume.
  • Superficial wrinkles can be treated on an outpatient basis using modern laser therapies. You can resume normal activities after a short time.
  • Thermage® is a gentle method for smoothing crow's feet at the outer corners of the eyes. It uses the stimulating effect of radio frequency waves.
  • The cosmetic experts of Rosenpark Clinic will provide you with comprehensive information and give you detailed recommendations – from pure skin care to high-quality, individually prepared anti-aging creams.
