Botulinum toxin is a bacterial produced toxin in a highly diluted concentration that inhibits the neuro transmitting release from the transmitter towards the responding muscle. The muscular activity is therefore reduced. Coincidently it´s side effect of flattening dermal folds was discovered by Canadian doctors (Carruthers) treating Blepharospasm of the eyes and Strabismus. Botulinum toxin is used in different medical fields since many years with tremendous success (i.e. Hyperhidrosis, Ophtalmology, gynecology and Cranio Mandibular Disorders (CMD) and of course in the facial esthetics).
We treat with Botulinum Toxin:
- Chewing muscular hyperactivity (Bruxism, CMDs)
- Gummy Smile (High smile line when the gum of the upper teeth is exposed, “horse smile”)
- Esthetic treatment of the face (eyes´crow feet, Glabella fold, Forehead, saggy lips).
