Wrinkle treatment with botulinum in Basel

Botulinum is a protein that suppresses the transmission of stimuli from the nerves to the muscles. It is broken down over time by the body's own enzymes. Therefore, it loses its effect after three to six months.

During wrinkle treatment with this protein we can specifically weaken individual muscles. This way these muscles can relax. This smoothes the skin and wrinkles. The effect occurs within about one week after administration.

What is botulinum?

Botulinum is a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Medicine has been using this biologically produced protein since the 1980s in a wide variety of areas. Botulinum is most frequently used as a medicine against disturbing expression lines.

No botulinum during pregnancy and lactation

Treatment with botulinum during pregnancy and lactation is not possible. Afterwards, the treatment can be started or continued.

How does botulinum work?

Botulinum is injected precisely into the muscle by Dr. Modaressi with a very fine needle. There the botulinum blocks the release of a messenger substance and inhibits the transmission from the nerve cell to the muscle. This relaxes the muscle. When treating excessive sweating, the sweat glands are inhibited instead of the muscles.

When and how long does botulinum work?

When used with a treating physician, botulinum can give a significantly rejuvenated and fresh appearance without the effect of a mask face. In most cases the treatment effect occurs after 48 - 72 hours. The maximum effect is achieved after 1 - 2 weeks. Rarely it can take longer before the effect sets in.

How bad is the pain?

During the treatment botulinum is injected with fine needles. Most people feel the sting like an insect bite.
