We use botulinum toxin not for the primary treatment of wrinkles, but rather to balance such complex facial muscle play. By weakening the muscle bundles whose contraction leads to sagging and ‘expression wrinkles’ the tissues can be lifted.
What is Botulinum toxin ?
Botulinum toxin is only a medicine that has been used for a long time in treating situations where muscles work harder than necessary. When applied inside the muscles, it causes the progressive relaxation of its fibers and is used in areas as diverse as neurology, ophthalmology, aesthetic medicine, pediatrics, urology or physiatry.
Cases of serious complications following botulinum toxin application may occur if unapproved substances and / or unqualified people are applying it.
How do we use it at Up Clinic?
There are more than forty muscles in the face and neck that adhere to the skin and constantly work on the various expressions. Over the years the muscles that “pull” the tissues down get stronger and sagging and wrinkling arise.
At Up Clinic we use botulinum toxin not for the primary treatment of wrinkles, but rather to balance such complex facial muscle play. By weakening the muscle bundles whose contraction leads to sagging and ‘expression wrinkles’ the tissues can be lifted.
At Up Clinic we propose global anti-aging strategies so applying botulinum toxin with this strategy prevents sagging and wrinkles and therefore aging. The results are excellent.
What is the technique about?
The application on the entire face and neck takes about 15 minutes and does not cause limitations of normal life. The result is so natural that it progressively consolidates over the following days.
Depending on the pace of aging – and one’s own will – the application can be repeated for 4 or 6 months but there are also those who do it annually.
Our concern to provide pleasant experiences is permanent because we use our own procedure with very thin needles and discomfort mitigating devices.
We almost always use vitamins to enhance the effect so we can even say that it is increasingly rare to use botulinum toxin alone.
When there is an indication for a peel it may be interesting to ‘smooth out’ the skin with botulinum toxin beforehand.
When you want to rejuvenate your neck with threads or growth factors, botulinum toxin complements by softening the muscle part that is very close to the skin.
