Botulinum Toxin to prevent the development of wrinkles and expression lines
Prevention of wrinkles by Botox® injections
It is now possible to prevent the development of visible wrinkles on the face.
Repeated contraction of facial self-expression muscles leads to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
These wrinkles can be present and visible even before the age of 30.
They depend on the expressiveness and muscle strength of each patient.
For this reason, the force of contraction of the mimic muscles and the natural asymmetry of each individual should be taken into consideration when botulinum toxin injections are performed.
With each contraction of the muscle, a skin crack is generated.
It will fade when the muscle is at rest.
From the age of 35-40, wrinkles can settle down and remain visible even at rest.
Botox® injections are therefore intended for patients who wish to reduce wrinkles and fine lines caused by facial expression muscles.
All skin types can benefit from these rejuvenating injections.
What is botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin or Botox®, is a drug that has been used for over 25 years for neuro-muscular dysfunctions.
It’s injected into the muscle.
Botox® puts the muscle to rest.
Doctor Amini’s expertise in the use of injections and the targeted action of botulinum toxin into the muscles helps smooth out facial wrinkles while maintaining a very natural and rejuvenating appearance.
Can Botox® be used to treat all facial wrinkles?
Botox® is above all the best preventive treatment to get rid of the wrinkles of the upper face:
- The Lion wrinkles (lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows)
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles in the corners of the eyes)
How does Botox® work?
Botox® progressively blocks the muscle in which it is injected.
As soon as the muscle is relaxed, the skin in relation to the muscle smooth and the skin wrinkles and fine lines become relaxed. The face will look rested and rejuvenated.
Botox® will slow down the development of fine lines and wrinkles and therefore will prevent facial aging.
This is why it can be injected as a preventive measure from the age of 30, before wrinkles appear.
The amount of Botox injected depends on the contraction power of the expression muscles.
Dr. Amini, an expert in Botox® injection, will choose the dose required to obtain the most natural result possible.
The main goal is to preserve facial expression without freezing your face!
The effects of the botulinum toxin treatment begin to appear after 3-5 days of injections.
The optimal result is achieved between 15 and 30 days after injections.
About 10 days after Botox® injections, Dr. Amini systematically checks his patients in the office.
Muscle paralysis is temporary. It lasts between 3 and 6 months.
To optimize treatment results over time, it is strongly recommended to repeat the injections approximately every 6 months for the first few years.
How do Botox® injections take place?
The first consultation in the office takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour.
Dr. Amini provides an estimate after the discussion and the clinical examination.
Injections are normally performed at the end of the first consultation.
The price of the treatment varies according to the areas which need to be treated.
The injections are not painful and are made with very tiny needles.
Botox® injections do not lead to social eviction of the patients.
