Botox (Botulinumtoxin) is a highly purified protein that has already been used in the successful treatment of neurological illnesses for over fifteen years. It curbs the hypertrophic muscle activity and enables the aimed-for immobilisation of the mimical muscles in the face and neck areas.
Botulinumtoxin is especially successful in the treatment of anger and worry lines and crow’s feet, and in the treatment of excessive perspiration in the hand, foot, armpit and other body areas. Neck folds and sunken mouth corners can also be successfully treated.
The effects occur between 2-12 days after operation and, depending on the patient, last for roughly six months.
