Wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin in Bern


With increasing age, fine lines become visible in every human being, which dig deeper and deeper into the skin over time. Wrinkles tend to appear particularly in areas of the body that are increasingly exposed to sunlight. Wrinkles appear more on the face, neck, décolleté and hands and make the entire appearance look older. Depending on the type, location and depth, they can create a tired, sad or sullen facial expression.

Cause of wrinkles

In addition to the natural aging process and genetic predisposition, both environmental influences and natural facial expressions play a decisive role in the development of wrinkles. Likewise, unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking reduce the quality of the skin and promote the appearance of unpopular wrinkles.

Wrinkle treatment

Various therapeutic measures are used individually or in combination for treatment in aesthetic medicine.

Botulinum toxin for wrinkle treatment is a popular method here in Bern and Zurich.

Mimic wrinkles that arise from conscious or unconscious muscle movements can be effectively smoothed out with the help of botulinum toxin. Botox is the name by which botulinum toxin, for example for the treatment of crow's feet, is known.

Loss of volume that occurs with deep and static wrinkles can be balanced out again with a hyaluronic acid treatment.

Modern laser processes complement the broad spectrum of wrinkle treatment and are particularly suitable for fine, superficial skin wrinkles ("creases"). These are mostly caused by strong UV exposure and can be removed with the help of the fractionated laser ("sieving technique"). Read more under CO2 laser.

Result of wrinkle treatment

A smooth and firm treatment area is the result of successful wrinkle treatment. The entire appearance looks youthful and fresh. The optical rejuvenation is usually accompanied by a significantly increased self-confidence of the patient.

Wrinkle treatment of the facial muscles

Crow's feet

There are two ways to treat laugh lines or crow's feet. On the one hand, Prof. Shafighi can inject botulinum toxin into the muscles responsible, which reduces its strength. The result is a - in the truest sense of the word - more relaxed facial expression. Furthermore, in some cases, hyaluronic acid can be used, which makes the skin appear fuller and more radiant. Hyaluronic acid does not apply to the muscle, but to the skin and is the ideal complement to a botulinum toxin injection. The shape of the face can also be easily adjusted, if desired. This has an additional rejuvenating effect.

After treatment with botulinum toxin

Treatment with botulinum toxin A in Bern is usually a small, low-risk procedure. The injection causes slight pain in the treated areas and the skin swells for a few minutes. Cold packs alleviate these symptoms. You can get this from us. There is actually no downtime and patients can immediately go back to their normal daily routine. Excessive facial massages or eyebrow plucking should be avoided immediately after injecting botulinum toxin in order to avoid undesirable consequences. Immediately after the botulinum toxin treatment, no result can be seen, as the botulinum toxin A must first develop its effect. This happens after about two days, after about ten days the effectiveness is reached. Since the botulinum toxin is broken down again by the body, regular refreshment is necessary for a lasting result. The second wrinkle treatment with botulinum oxin is usually started after four to eight months.

Possible complications of wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin

Complications are very rare when treating wrinkles with botulinum toxin. Allergic reactions and intolerance are very rarely seen and can be treated with antiallergic medication. Occasionally, bruises, reddening or itching develop after treatment with botulinum toxin. Sometimes mild tension headaches occur, which are short-lived and normal for the first 2 weeks or even the first few days. Treatment by an experienced doctor is strongly recommended, as complications from treatment errors can also occur with the botox treatment. If too high a dosage is chosen, partial paralysis of the affected area is possible, which subsides as soon as the botulinum toxin has been broken down by the body. Inaccuracies at the puncture site can also lead to hanging lids. Patients should therefore ensure that they consult an experienced specialist for wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin BTX.

Was ist genau "Botox" ?

Botox ist ein Protein, ursprünglich ein Nervenhemmer und wird in kleinster Dosierung als Muskelrelaxans eingesetzt, das die Muskelkontraktion durch Blockade des hierfür notwendigen Botenstoffes vermindert. Dadurch kommt es zu einer Muskelentspannung, die dafür sorgt, dass sich mimische Falten glätten bzw. vollständig verschwinden. Botutlinum Toxin A ist ein Protein, welches in kleinster Dosis zu einer Muskelentspannung führt. Botox hemmt die Erregungsübertragung zwischen Nerven und Muskulatur. Da es nur jeweils auf einzelne Muskeln wirkt, können dadurch mimische Falten selektiv geglättet werden. Dabei verändert sich bei korrekter Anwendung der Gesichtsausdruck nicht.

Darf Botox auch während der Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit angewendet werden?

Aus Sicherheitsgründen sollten während der Schwangerschaft und der Stillzeit keine Botox Faltenbehandliung erfolgen.
