What is Botox

Botox is administered in measured amounts to ensure that muscles are temporarily not controlled by nerves. This makes wrinkles less visible or even disappear.

Hanging mouth corners

Are you often asked if you’re grumpy, sad or angry, when you’re really happy and in good spirits? Hanging mouth corners may be causing your facial expression to mismatch how you feel.

What are injectables

The collective term “injectables” includes treatments with products that are inserted into the skin with a needle, such as fillers and temporary muscle relaxants. Injectables are used primarily as a treatment to remove wrinkles (frown lines, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles near the nose, crow’s feet) or to fill in lips. It is also suitable for counteracting excessive sweating, a gummy smile (visible gums when smiling) or for migraines.

What is Botox

Botox is a brand name for Botulinum Toxin. Botulin Toxin is a protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Its action is simple, natural and safe. Botulinum Toxin makes sure that muscles and sweat glands can’t be controlled by nerves temporarily, the transmission of signals is blocked. This causes the functioning of the muscles and sweat glands to decrease or come to a complete stop. After a few months, the transmission of signals fully recovers.

Botox is used not only for wrinkle treatment but also against migraines, excessive sweating and teeth grinding.

What is a filler

Fillers are liquid fillers used to fill wrinkles and folds that are passive. Think of the nasolabial fold, marionette lines, bags under eyes, but fillers are also used to improve contours such as the jawline, nose or for fuller lips.

Fillers are injectable gels based on Hyaluronic Acid (body’s own) that belong to the group of injectables. They are inserted under the skin with a thin needle and retain up to 30% more moisture. The filler is broken down by the body slowly (up to about 12 months).

Work on yourself

Everyone has external features that they themselves find beautiful or less beautiful. With modern techniques we can achieve great changes with small interventions. We want every person to feel good in their skin.
