Botulinum, also called Botox, is a drug that moderately weakens the activity of the muscles. Wrinkles are smoothed and facial features are relaxed.
Facial wrinkles are treated with botulinum* . The safety of this substance has been documented in numerous scientific publications. The main area of application is the upper third of the face, i.e. the treatment of frown lines in the area between the eyes (glabella), worry lines on the forehead and laughter lines on the outer corners of the eyes. Another indication for the use of botulinum is hyperhidrosis .
*The specialty names of botulinum are currently approved by Swissmedic for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines and crow’s feet in adults. Other indications therefore correspond to «off-label use».
and by the way: Dr Oliver Ph. Kreyden is one of the first botulinum users in Switzerland.
How botulinum is used
A few days after the treatment, the botulinum treatment results in a relaxed, rested and fresh facial expression. As simple as that.
The treatment of the lower third of the face with botulinum is demanding due to the complex interaction of the various muscles. The Kreyden practice clinic specializes in this expert therapy. Contact us! With the right indication, a certain lifting can also be achieved with botulinum injections.
