Home Surgeries Botuline

As people age, facial expressions leave their scars in the face. Forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown furrows occur. To treat these wrinkles, little subcutaneous muscles can be injected with a product called botuline.

Botuline treatment decreases the overactivity of the facial muscles. Botuline is a toxin which causes a paralysis of the muscle. Being injected in minimal doses, botuline has a local effect of which the facial muscles tend to relax and the underlying skin becomes smooth and unwrinkled.

Botuline injections

After the botuline treatment, your skin will look younger and smoother. Botuline injections do not affect the normal facial expression. The full effects of Botuline treatments are not apparent for 3 to 5 days and they remain for approximately 6 months. This might vary form person to person.

Botuline is injected with a very tiny needle into the desired area and no anaesthesia is required. It can be done simply during the consultation and there is usually no discomfort. By way of speaking, one can be treated during his or her lunch-break and immediately resume normal activities.

Botuline has been used safely for years by different doctors, without any side effects. Very occasionally drooping of the eyelid or mouth corner might occur.

However due to the non-permanent nature of botuline, this is always temporary and if a droop were to occur, it disappears spontaneously after 1 or 2 weeks. Other facial parts are not suitable to be injected with botuline because they are vital for the natural facial expression.

How Botox® corrects a gummy smile

An excessive amount of gum under the upper lip shows when you smile? This so-called gummy smile will make you feel uncertain. It will be tough to feel good if you are not confident in your smile.
The muscles in your lip will elevate your lip too much when smiling, so that your gums will become visible.
This gummy smile can partially be treated with a temporary muscle relaxant, such as Botox®.
For an optimal result it is important to choose an experienced physician to perform the Botox® injections.

The muscles in your lip will be relaxed and no longer contract and elevate the your lip, once they are treated with Botox®.  It will take 2 to 10 days before the result of the treatment will be visible. The effects of Botox® on your gummy smile will last approximately 4 months.

Botox® treatment for bunny lines

Bunny lines are the fine wrinkles that appear when you scrunch up your nose, such as when you laugh or smile deeply.

As with all expression lines, these wrinkles are typically caused by repeated facial movements in the area, like wrinkling your nose. As from a certain age onwards these wrinkles will stay visible, even without scrunching up your nose. Injections with Botox® will help to fade away your bunny lines.

Botox® treatment for marionette lines / corners of the mouth

People have the impression you are blunt, as where this is not the case? A droopy mouth or marionette lines may give the impression of looking older than you are or of not being happy.

The drooping mouth corners may be treated by Botox® injections, to weaken the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth, which in turn allows the corners of the lips to rise.

A simple Botox® treatment will restore your youthful appearance of your smile.
