Every face is different, and all faces change over time. Your face is one of the few body parts that are nearly always exposed and it is the first thing other people notice about you. Sooner or later, the first wrinkles appear around your eyes and/or on your forehead. At first, wrinkles may appear only on the surface of your skin and may even completely recede after a good night’s sleep. Over time, however, they become deeper and deeper, no longer disappearing overnight.
If you would like to ward off this development, Dr. Hubmann can offer you Botox® treatment.
Botox® gently weakens the facial muscles responsible for developing wrinkles, which enables your skin to relax and become smooth again. This application is particularly suitable for forehead wrinkles, frown and laugh lines, crow’s feet, and fine lines on your upper lip. When used as a preventive measure, Botox® treatment can prevent early wrinkles from deepening.
Botox® is sometimes associated with lifeless or expressionless faces. However, Dr. Hubmann treatment objective is for your skin to look naturally rejuvenated and smooth. The aim is for you to look refreshed, recovered, and rested after the treatment.
In addition to aesthetic Botox® treatment, it can also be used to treat migraine and teeth grinding.
|Duration of treatment: 1/2 hour|
|Anesthesia: an anesthetic ointment can be applied upon request|
|Postoperative guidelines: no vigorous exercise or use of the sauna within 12 hours of treatment|
|Return to (office) work: immediately|
|Light exercise: immediately|
In your personalized consultation, Dr. Hubmann will discuss the wide range of applications of Botox® with you and develop an individual treatment plan based on his ABSOLUTELY YOU concept.
As with all of his treatments, Dr. Hubmann performs Botox® therapy with the utmost precision. You will receive close attention and care from both him and his team before, during, and after the procedure. Your adherence to the recommendations for post-treatment care is essential to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the results of your tummy tuck. This will pave the way to a new YOU.
It is important for you to cool the injected area immediately after treatment. Cold packs are made available to minimize swelling and bruises. Vigorous physical exertion or use the sauna within 12 hours of treatment should be avoided. You may apply makeup to the treated area 1 hour after therapy.
In rare cases, minor swelling and bruises can occur after treatment. If you experience this, you may use makeup to cover the area 1 hour after therapy. Treatment will therefore not limit your public attendance.
Botox® acts on the muscles. After 48 hours, the muscles will start to relax. However, it takes 10 to 14 days for this relaxation to affect your skin and your wrinkles. Once the treatment has taken effect, you will be pleased with the new YOU smiling back at you in the mirror.
Botox® treatment can easily be combined with other procedures. These may include hyaluronic acid injection (dermal filler) for wrinkles and thread lifting or operative treatments. Please do not hesitate to discuss your goals with Dr. Hubmann during your personalized consultation.
Botox® treatment requires in-depth knowledge of the facial anatomy and a great deal of finesse during the injection. As an experienced specialist plastic and aesthetic surgeon, Dr. Hubmann will carefully match the injection sites and volumes to your individual needs; the goal is to naturally rejuvenate and smooth the skin without affecting your facial expression.
Over time, the relaxation of the facial muscles wears off. While the time line varies from person to person, the wrinkles generally reappear after 4 to 6 months. The treatment may be repeated. Each successive treatment may last longer, so you will likely need treatment only once every 6 to 12 months. In addition, you can protect your skin from aging by consistently applying sun protection and diligently caring for your skin.
