Wrinkle Treatment with Botulinum Toxin A

Injections with Botulinum Toxin A are an effective, minimal-evasive treatment to make mimic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, Glabella lines, and others disappear. Your features relax, your face appears fresh and rejuvenated. At the same time, the treatment ensures that fewer wrinkles will reappear. Botulinum Toxin A temporarily inhibits the impulse transmission between nerve endings and muscle. As a result, the muscle is no longer able to contract to the original extent. Therefore, treatment of facial lines with Botulinum Toxin A is ideal for all wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, i.e., the wrinkles radiating from the outer corners of the eyes. Due to the absence of a contraction, new collagen fibers are gradually deposited around the wrinkle, underpinning the line from deep within. At the same time, the muscle becomes weaker and thinner since it is used less often. More complex treatments can also be applied successfully: With a ”Chemical Brow Lift,“ slightly sunken eyebrows can be lifted again.

Injection therapy with Botulinum Toxin A, commonly called Botox®, is a very effective treatment method. For the past several decades, Botulinum Toxin A has been used very successfully in various fields of medicine (e.g., neurology, ophthalmology, and aesthetic medicine). 

After wrinkle treatment with Botulinum Toxin A, your face will look more harmonious, at ease, and rejuvenated. Your face will appear relaxed without losing its individuality. After 15 to 30 minutes, a tense, dull, and weary face will look fresh and natural again.

Even strongly developed chewing muscles (masseter hypertrophy) can profit significantly from the relaxing effects of Botulinum Toxin A. The associated headaches and pain in the mandibular joint often disappear as well. A reduction in muscle activity can also have a pain-relieving effect on excessive teeth grinding (bruxism). For many healthcare professionals, an occlusal splint, worn at night, is the treatment of choice for patients suffering from bruxism. But even such a splint does not prevent patients from clenching their teeth so tightly that the jaw muscles tense up, causing pain in the facial area. The proportionate inhibition of intense contractions helps to alleviate these symptoms. At the same time, the muscle that is no longer used as often becomes weaker and thinner. Consequently, the facial contours become softer again.

The effect of Botulinum Toxin A therapy lasts for approx. 4 to 6 months before it has to be repeated.

Visible swelling, bruises (hematomas), and painful areas may occur sporadically after treatment with Botulinum Toxin A. Botulinum Toxin A must not be used for treatment during pregnancy or while breast-feeding.

In a personal consultation, Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter will discuss, sensitively and in detail which treatment or therapy is to be recommended in your individual case. Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter will also explain the course of treatment as well as possible adverse side effects and risks.

If you decide on a Botulinum Toxin A treatment, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process. 

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all of your personality’s facets. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.
