Neuromodulators (Botulinum Toxin)


The first apparent wrinkles are expression wrinkles. They are the first traces left on the face by our facial expressions due to repeated contractions of the facial muscles. Although natural, the appearance of wrinkles on the face can sometimes disturb. The injection of neuromodulators, such as botulinum toxin (Jeuveau, Botox, Dysport), delays the appearance of permanent wrinkles and softens wrinkles already present on the face.

Botulinum toxin is mainly used to treat forehead wrinkles, goose legs, and lion wrinkles (fold between eyebrows). It is administered by injection directly into the muscle responsible for the wrinkle in order to release it. By relaxing the responsible muscle, the wrinkle is softened or completely attenuated. The effects of botulinum toxin are visible quickly, only a few days after the injection. As the body naturally eliminates botulinum toxin, it is a safe and non-binding process.

Treatable areas

Vertical wrinkles on the forehead

Vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows are due to powerful muscles, and repeated frowning causes permanent wrinkles to dig. The inhibition of these hyperactive muscles will make it possible to regain a more serene and relaxed expression.

The horizontal wrinkles on the forehead

These wrinkles are certainly the most spectacular indication of botulinum toxin, restoring the forehead to its smooth appearance that it had before.

Crow feet

Caused by a smile, wrinkles from the corner of the eyes can sometimes become marked and then lose their “sympathetic” appearance.

Small doses of botulinum toxin, while keeping the smile intact, avoid this unsightly aspect.

Lower wrinkles on the face and neck

Botulinum toxin can be used to improve specific vertical folds of the neck.

Other indications of the lower half of the face should be examined on a case-by-case basis: certain folds of the nose, chin, labial commissures, etc.
