The most effective treatment
WHAT IS BOTULINUM TOXIN
Botulinum toxin is the most popular anti-aging treatment in Cosmetic Dermatology, for the elimination of facial expression wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is also used for neck wrinkles and for enhancing the facial shape. Apart from its cosmetic use, Botulinum toxin is used in a variety of medical conditions, such as hyperhidrosis, blepharospasm, migraine and many more.
Botulinum toxin is one of the most popular treatments, as it is a minimally invasive procedure, with immediate and spectacular results. It is an easy, fast and painless procedure, after which you can return immediately to your daily activities.
Botulinum toxin is done with small intramuscular injections, targeting the muscles that we want to render less active and make them relax. Botulinum toxin is acting, by reducing the transmission of nerve impulses to them.
When it is done correctly, from experienced Dermatologists or Plastic Surgeons, it does not paralyze the muscles, but relaxes them and makes you look younger, without altering the face’s natural features and expressiveness.
The areas where Botulinum toxin injections are applied for the treatment of wrinkles are the following:
- Botulinum toxin for forehead wrinkles (surprise wrinkles)
- Botulinum toxin for glabellar lines (anger wrinkles)
- Botulinum toxin for eye wrinkles (crow’s feet)

- Stay upright and do not lie down, for 4 hours after having your Botulinum toxin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is Botulinum toxin treatment painful?
The discomfort during the application is minimal and in fact, some patients do not feel any pain at all or others describe it as “mosquito bites”. If the patient wishes, we can apply a local anesthetic cream before the treatment, which eliminates any discomfort. Immediately after the treatment, one may return to his/her daily activities.
Does Botulinum toxin have side effects?
No. In the hands of an experienced Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon, Botulinum toxin has no side effects. Some slight bruising may occur in the area of injections sometimes, but it will disappear in a couple of days.
How long do the effects of Botulinum toxin last?
For most of the patients, they last for 4-6 months. Botulinum toxin injections need to be repeated, usually 2-3 times a year. It is clinically proven that when the treatment is being regular, it has a longer lasting effect.
Is Botulinum toxin less effective over the years?
No. On the contrary, when Botulinum toxin is being regularly repeated, its effect lasts longer and the wrinkles stay smooth for longer. It is also better if we begin its application when the first expression wrinkles appear, in order to prevent these wrinkles from getting deeper and become permanent.
What is the most appropriate age for someone to begin Botulinum toxin?
This always depends on the skin’s quality and differs from case to case. It also depends, if a patient’s face is less or more expressive. It is always better if Botulinum toxin treatments begin before the wrinkles become permanent. Medical studies have shown that Botulinum toxin prevents the appearance of wrinkles if treatment begins at a younger age (28-30 years old).
Will my face get emotionless?
No. When Botulinum toxin is applied by an expert doctor, it enhances your natural beauty and facial features, without compromising your expressiveness. A few days after Botulinum toxin treatment, facial wrinkles gradually disappear, while normal facial expression remains unaffected.
When someone decides to stop the treatment, do wrinkles get worse?
No, under no circumstances. What happens is exactly the opposite. Botulinum toxin prevents further and deeper wrinkle formation because, during the treatment period, the muscles have reduced activity.
Are there cheaper substitutes?
The authorized products are Botulinum toxin Allergan and Dysport Ipsen. Anything else may be of suspicious origin, illegal, with uncertain results and potentially dangerous to your health. You should always make sure, an authorized product is used for your treatment.
Approved Botulinum toxin products should only be used in certified Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Clinics and by a Dermatologist or a Plastic Surgeon. Be cautious about cheap prices and therapies taking place in hairdressing – cosmetic salons, Beauty centers, etc. as it is likely that in these cases, the quality and origin of the substance might be dubious and harmful.
COST – PRICES
The cost of Botulinum toxin treatment depends on the area (the number and depth of the wrinkles) and the units of the product, which will be necessary.
The cost of treating an area begins at 80 euros and the cost of full-face therapy at 250 euros.
