Non-surgical removal of wrinkles is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures in the world. It gives excellent visual results, it is safe, reversible and it can be done at any age. Wrinkles become more shallow or disappear completely; we can perform the procedure using two different types of preparations. They work either by filling and nourishing skin or by relaxing muscles and smoothing skin as a result. Both methods are reversible, and the substances used are absorbed by the body without a trace.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, mainly in the skin. Unfortunately, levels of this critical nutrient decline greatly with age. Therefore, it is important to provide an additional supply of the acid. Hyaluronic acid therapy gives effects almost immediately- it does not require allergy tests, but it is not administered once and for all. The effect lasts for about 9-12 months. The advantage of the acid treatment is its complete reversibility and stimulating natural processes in the skin, which is an incredible benefit.
Botulinum toxin is a completely different way of fighting wrinkles. It blocks the connection between nerves and muscles- so-called synapses, relaxing muscles and smoothing wrinkles. In aesthetic medicine, very small doses of the toxin are used, which makes it completely safe despite its strong action and there can be no systemic toxicity. The dosage is selected according to the patient’s individual needs, and the first effect becomes visible after 3 days; and the final appearance is achieved after about two weeks after the procedure. The effect lasts for 4-6 months; the treatment can be repeated after that time. However, if the patient does not wish the repetition, he or she still gets a bonus, as in the case of wrinkle fillers. Due to the fact that for several months there have been no movements that cause wrinkles, our skin has a proper rest and looks younger.
