Botox – The Swiss Army Knife in the Aesthetician’s Toolbox

BOTOX (or botulinumtoxin A as it is properly called) is the most popular non surgical cosmetic treatment in the world. In 2016 alone, nearly 5 million people all over the globe asked for this simple yet remarkable and very versile treatment. And the trend continues to go up. Whilst it is true that BOTOX is a poison (and in its natural form actually one of the strongest poisons in the world), it has an impeccable safety record when applied by trained and experienced medical professionals. Also, the modern BOTOX products available on the market today would have to be massively overdosed to be dangerous for one’s health or even life.

How does BOTOX  work? Many lines and wrinkles in our face are created by our own expressions, constantly contracting muscles to smile, laugh or look surprised or angry. What BOTOX does is to (partially) inhibit muscles from contracting. It relaxes the muscles beneath the skin, so that their pulling and pushing forces do no longer fully impact the skin layer above. It takes anatomical expertise and practical experience, however, to avoid overdosing and targetting the wrong muscles, thereby potentially impairing our ability to make facial expressions (the much dreaded “botox face”). When applied by experts, the exact muscles responsible for wrinkles in the forehead or between the brows will be relaxed in the exact dose, all without hindering our ability to be as expressive as ever.

At LIPS and SKIN Aesthetic Medicine, I am proud to provide our Munich BOTOX patients with a tasteful, effective approach to cosmetic botulinum therapy.  I strive to provide my patients with the best and most diligent BOTOX treatment in Munich and to that end take ample time to analyze your facial anatomy and to set doses carefully. It is my conviction that BOTOX should be used to highlight your natural beauty, not to create an artificial, unsympathetic expression.

  • Quick treatment: BOTOX injections take no longer than 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. Including prior consultation you can be done in in less than an hour.

  • Immediate results: Most patients see noticeable improvements within 3 days and the full effect in about 2 weeks.

  • Suited for all mimic wrinkles: BOTOX softens frown lines, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), on top of the nose (bunny lines), around the mouth (smoker lines) and on the chin. It can also be used to lift eyebrows and (within limits) the tip of the nose.

  • Results are reversible: The effects of BOTOX injections last approximately 4 to 6 months, regardless whether you are happy with them or not. So in other words: You can try out the treatment and see whether it is for you. If yes, you will have to renew. If no, you will just let the effects fade out. The BOTOX itself will completely disappear from your body. Long-term studies prove there are no lasting effects on the neural system and no chemical remnants in the body.

In recent years, several additional applications for BOTOX have been developed, such as BOTOX against hyperhidrosis (sweating), Botox against migraine pain or Botox against teeth grinding (bruxism). At LIPS and SKIN, I am happy to offer our Munich BOTOX patients all these procedures. I also apply BOTOX in a new injection technique called “micro botox” that targets the skin and not the underlying muscles. Micro botox works great against large pores and oliy skin.

I can help you achieve a youthful, radiant new look.
