Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected under the skin and give added volume or padding to the treated areas. This is how wrinkles can be smoothed, or lips configured more fully. Areas most frequently treated are:
- Injection of wrinkles: visible smoothening and attenuation of even marked skin folds, e.g. frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette folds or oral commissures, peri-labial folds
- Labial correction: fuller lips as well as enhancement of lip contour
- Correction of deepened scars
We provide hyaluronic acid therapy to our patients in our plastic surgery clinic three times weekly.
Wrinkle treatment with Botox
Botox (botulinum toxin) is frequently used in cosmetic surgery for the treatment of wrinkles. It allows excellent targeted disabling/paralyzing of the expressive/mimetic musculature of the face and neck.
The most commonly treated are horizontal forehead wrinkles ("worry lines"), the glabellar fold ("frown lines"), and periocular wrinkles ("smile lines", "crow's feet"). In general, early results can be seen after about three to five days, full effect takes about a week. On average, the effect lasts for about six months (four to nine months). Furthermore, botox is also used for the treatment of tension headaches and migraine.
We offer botox treatments to our patients in our plastic surgery clinic three times weekly. During the same visit, treatment with so-called fillers can easily be combined if desired.
