Botuline Toxin is also commonly referred to as Botox, although there are already many other brands on the market.
The toxin causes a temporary blockage between a nerve and a muscle after injection, causing the muscle to relax. This effect can be used very well in the treatment of wrinkles caused by muscle movements such as the frown lines, the forehead lines and the crow's feet. In addition, muscle relaxation can be used to reduce a gummy smile, pulling pits in the chin or helping to lift the eyebrows or nose tip.
You don't immediately see the effect of a toxin treatment. After a few days the effect starts to become visible and is optimal after about two weeks. This does not mean that the best possible effect on wrinkles has already arisen. Multiple treatments may be necessary to further improve the effect.
It is usually necessary to repeat the treatment after about three months. Although we see in many of our clients that with repeated treatments we can slowly increase the intervals to around six months.
In our clinic we choose to treat exclusively with Bocouture®. This is namely the only toxin with only the active substance without complexing proteins, so that we see as few adverse effects as possible (such as immunity) after a treatment
