Botox Cosmetic®


Due to repeated movements, facial muscles cause skin and subcutaneous tissues to wrinkle. Over the years, fine lines set in. The use of muscle-relaxant substances like Botox Cosmetic ® treatments help the skin loosen up and makes wrinkles disappear. The effects of this treatment usually occur after five days and last three to four months.

What is Botox Cosmetic®?

Botox Cosmetic ® injections contain a protein that is produced in the laboratory. This product has been used in the medical cosmetic field since the beginning of the 1990s.

By precisely weakening muscles that cause expression lines, this treatmentgives the skin a refreshed look with its targeted action. 

Different types of wrinkles

Botox Cosmetic ® treatments efficiently fight most expression lines:

  • Glabelle wrinkles
  • Crow's-feet wrinkles (outer corners of the eyes)
  • Lines on the forehead
  • Fine lines on the lips contour
  • Neck lines
  • Wrinkles of the nose root
  • Wrinkles in the corners of the mouth
  • Chin wrinkles


How does a Botox Cosmetic ® injection work?

The doctor will give an injection in small quantities to the targeted muscle. This treatment is carried out in just a few minutes. It has the advantage of being almost painless and no downtime is required following treatment. You will therefore be able to go about your usual occupations once the injection is done.

Generally, three or four annual injections are recommended to maintain the treated muscles in a relaxed state.
