How and why do we get wrinkles?


The facial muscles are situated directly on the surface of the skin. Thus our facial expression is created through movement of these muscles, which consists of a characteristic pattern of wrinkles. Some wrinkles are only visible, when showing certain expressions (laugh wrinkles). Others,  shape the facial expression permanently and can be annoying, like “crows feet”, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles between the eyebrows, that make you look angry, etc.

‘Unpleasant’ wrinkles emerge, when elasticity of the facial skin decreases. Facial muscles begin to weaken in age. Exactly when this process starts depends on individual genetic disposition, and  on other external factors such as UV-exposure and smoking.


We offer two treatment options to get free of your annoying and unwanted companions, take a look below.


” We can help you to look sharp!”

Botulinumtoxin injection


Botulinumtoxin A (trading names Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) is a neurotoxin, which inhibits the transmission of nervous impulses.

Depending on the dose, the injected muscle will be weakened or rather paralyzed, which will not compromise the nervous functions of the skin (sense of touch) above the muscle.


After several months the active substance gets degraded by the body and the effect will weaken.


The substance is injected with a very fine needle into the indicated regions of the forehead. The experienced minor discomfort is comparable to a mosquito bite.

Wrinkle and tissue fillers with hyaluronic acid


Wrinkles that emerge because of tissue loss can be remedied by compounds, that increase the volume in the concerning areas. These are typically comprised of a mixture of natural material (hyaluronic acid, collagen) and artificial materials (micro-capsulated synthetic particles).

During treatment the compound gets injected into the indicated skin layer, which needs to be “refilled”.

The so called ‘fillers’ are predominantly used for the lower half of the face, i.e. nasolabial, cheeks, lips etc.
