The aging process inevitably leads to the appearance of wrinkles and folds in certain well-defined areas of the face.

Aesthetic medicine frequently uses botulinum toxin and injectable dermal fillers to counteract the effects of aging.

Botulinum toxin acts differently from fillers.

While injectable fillers help restore volume loss and reduce the appearance of age-related conditions, botulinum toxin injections relax specific muscles making certain facial lines such as the forehead lines disappear or soften.

Combined with complementary treatments such as upper or lower blepharoplasty, dermal fillers (Juvederm®, Belotero®, etc.), CO2 laser resurfacing or laser treatment for hyperpigmentation, botulinum toxin injections can significantly improve age-related conditions.

Treated Conditions:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine Lines

What zones can be treated?

Botulinum toxin injections can improve the appearance of facial aging by mainly treating:

  • Forehead wrinkles: horizontal lines of the forehead;
  • Glabellar wrinkles: vertical lines between the eyes;
  • Crow’s feet wrinkles: wrinkles at the outer corners of the eye.

There are other applications of botulinum toxin that require a particular mastery of the injection technique and a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy. Thus, botulinum toxin can also be used to improve the position of an eyebrow that is too low, to correct a square jaw due to an overly strong masseter muscle, but also to reduce sweating in certain patients suffering from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Procedure details

A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles. By carefully choosing specific muscles, Dr Boudana weakens only the wrinkle-producing muscles, preserving your natural facial expressions.

Botulinum toxin treatment injections usually take less than 15 minutes.

The number of injections you need will depend on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for example, usually demand two to three injections. Furrows above your brow could take five or more.

There is no down time or recovery time for botulinum toxin injections.

You may resume normal activities immediately.

Don’t rub or massage the treated areas after the wrinkle treatment because it can cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to another area of your face. If this
happens, you could have temporary facial weakness or drooping.

Any procedure has risks and botulinum toxins injections are no exception.

These risks should be discussed during the medical consultation prior to the treatment.

Our team is highly qualified and has years of experience in the use of botulinum toxins. We use the latest techniques.


Result is expected 7-14 days after the treatment, which requires no downtime, unlike surgeries. It is a simple technique, virtually pain free and fast, which generally only leads to slight local side effects (bruising and/or swelling).
