Botox treatment for wrinkles
Botox is most commonly used in the upper third of the face up to the zygomatic arch and is particularly suitable for correcting frown lines (glabellar folds), transverse forehead lines and crow’s feet. It is still little known, but Botox is a real miracle cure for hyperhidrosis, the excessive sweating.

How is botox treatment carried out?
Wrinkle treatments with Botox can treat individual, annoying wrinkles as well as be used in combination with other active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid fillers for holistic anti-aging therapy. During the consultation, we will work with you to create a treatment concept tailored to you and your wishes.
Our specialists will inject you with the Botox with a special, extremely thin needle, so that you will not notice much of the treatment apart from a slight poke. The stab effect is also reduced by a surface anesthetic (local anesthetic) and a cold application (e.g. an ice pack). During the treatment, which only lasts a few minutes, the active ingredient inhibits the conduction of stimuli from the nerve to the muscles, thereby relaxing muscles and skin. The smoothing effect begins after just a few days.
In many cases, a simple botox injection can be enough to achieve the goal of drastically reducing sweat production. By injecting it into the armpit skin, it inhibits the small muscle that otherwise activates the sweat gland in response to a nerve stimulus. This effect lasts up to nine months. Our experience shows that after repeated, regular applications, an end to profuse sweating can be achieved.
Our specialists also use Botox / Vistabel®
- during the lateral and medial brow lift
- for mouth wrinkles
- for wrinkles on the bridge of the nose
- with drooping corners of the mouth
Botox treatment costs
The costs of a Botox treatment are based on the milliliters used and can therefore not be given as a flat rate. For smaller areas, such as the injection of frown lines, a cost of around 200 euros can be expected. Your specialist will work with you to create an individual concept and a non-binding cost estimate.

Background information: Botox
Botulinum toxin, better known under the trade name Botox, is a biotechnologically produced and isolated protein that is obtained from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The substance was first discovered in 1817 by the Swabian country doctor Dr. Justinus Kerner described. However, it was still over 150 years before the Californian ophthalmologist Dr. Alan B. Scott first used the active ingredient in the 1970s for the successful treatment of strabismus. Botox is used in aesthetic medicine just as successfully as in neurology. In the early 1990s, Canadian ophthalmologists Jean and Alistair Carruthers discovered by chance that not only did strabismus and “eyelid cramps” improve, but also that the wrinkles around the eyes of their patients also reduced. The substance relaxes facial muscles and at the same time smooths wrinkles. In the meantime, wrinkle treatment with the active ingredient is the most frequently used aesthetic procedure both in Germany and worldwide.
Common questions about botox treatment
How long does botox last
The hyaluronic acid injection cost in india varies greatly from patient to patient. In addition to environmental influences and genetic factors, the strain on the muscles also plays an important role. For example, those who often sit in front of their PC or cell phone and concentrate heavily strain the muscles between the eyes so that the frown lines can become visible again more quickly. As a rule, the effects of Botox last between 4 and 6 months. Refreshing is usually easily possible.
How does botox work?
Botox blocks the release of messenger substances at nerve endings, so that muscles and glands are temporarily relaxed and the skin can regenerate. Over time, it is broken down by the body, so that the effect on the muscles lasts for 4 to 6 months, and a little longer for sweat glands. With regular use, the corresponding muscle is weakened and the intervals between treatments are extended. Damage to muscles and nerves is not to be expected.
Is Botox a Poison?
Botox is a natural protein that does not pose a risk of poisoning in the doses used. For an overdose, the patient would have to be injected 30 ampoules at once, so that an accidental overdose can be excluded.
Is it safe to use?
Botox is one of the best-researched active ingredients in the world and has been used successfully in the therapeutic field for more than 15 years, even in young children. In aesthetic use, the dosages are also much lower than in the therapeutic area. There have been no reports of any long-term side effects.
When should you do without an injection?
During pregnancy, a local infection at the injection site and if hypersensitivity to one of the components has been proven, we cannot accept responsibility for treatment with Botox.
What if I can’t see any effect?
If you do not notice any visible improvement after two weeks, please come to one of our clinics for a check-up. Since the effect of Botox is individual, a few units may have to be injected afterwards.
Will my facial expressions be frozen?
No, the expression on your face is retained. To smooth out wrinkles, only muscles are relaxed; a large number of other muscles are responsible for your facial expressions, which are not soothed by botox. Unwanted effects can occur if the active ingredient gets into the wrong muscles, but this is very rare and in these exceptional cases is limited in time.
Will i feel numb?
No, because Botox only affects the transmission of stimuli to the muscle, not the sensitivity of the skin to irritation. You perceive stimuli such as pressure, warmth and cold as before the treatment.
