Botulinum toxin

How does it work?

The botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that prevents nerve impulses from passing between nerve fibres and muscles. The muscles are thus relaxed where the substance is applied, and the mimic wrinkles are smoothened.

How is it applied?

Using a thin needle, the substance is injected beneath the treated area. In response, the muscle slackens and the wrinkles disappear. The final effect is achieved in about 7 days. If the effect is to last, the procedure has to be repeated after approximately 6 months.

Is the application safe?

The substance is injected in very low concentrations and exclusively by a physician having expert knowledge of facial anatomy. With these two conditions met, the application is entirely safe. Complications occasionally mentioned include typically drooping upper eyelid and the asymmetry of face.

Hyaluronic acid

This acid is quite a common substance in human body. The aesthetic medicine finds it useful primarily for filling-in deep wrinkles; giving volume to lips; and correcting sunk scars.

How does it work?

The hyaluronic acid is able to absorb a large volume of water and thus produce the fill-in effect. Moreover, it facilitates the creation of collagen in skin and restores its youthful appearance. The acid can also slow down the process of skin aging. After about half a year, the injected substance shall be fully absorbed. 

How is it applied?

Using a thin needle or a cannula, the substance is injected beneath the skin in the area being treated. This procedure does not require anesthesia, but a gel having this effect can first be applied.

What preparation do we employ?

The market offers several dozen different preparations based on the acid. Low price not being our first consideration, we never try to administer the cheapest preparations. That is why we employ solely the premium products of Naeuvia, a Switzerland-based company.
