to accentuate your natural beauty
The modern wrinkle treatment is a sure way to an attractive appearance, which shows no traces of progressing age.
Unfortunately, it is an unrivaled law that the skin loses tension with increasing age. The first facial wrinkles typically occur in the forehead and eye area and around the mouth. In addition to aging, factors such as intense sun exposure or strong smoking intensify the process of wrinkling in the long term. In particular, the latter point shows that the lifestyle has just as great an effect on the change of our skin picture as the genetic predisposition of each individual person However, you have a choice in the age of plastic-aesthetic surgery (keyword "face design"): You do not have to subordinate your appearance to the age. After all, everyone is as old as he feels - and should bear this outwards as well. If you have already thought about a wrinkle treatment, all specialists will advise you about your possibilities. The established methods that dermatology research has produced differ by area of wrinkles in the face and condition of the skin.

Important facts about our wrinkle treatment
The most gentle treatment is the pleat injection with so-called fillers, ie injectable filling materials. The filling substance can be used to polish deep wrinkles (for example, the nasolabial fold between nose wings and mouth angles) from the inside or to smooth skin parts such as cheeks, neck or the eye region.
In addition, lips and cheeks can be made more voluminous. In contrast to the facelift, our approach is a wrinkle treatment without surgery. The procedure is carried out exclusively by specialists with many years' experience when booking through SwissBeautyMed. We do not offer alternative procedures, such as a laser-applied wrinkle treatment, - a significant disadvantage of the laser method is that the first visible results only occur after a considerably longer time than during the under-injection with Filler. Also after peeling applications, treated persons have to wait several weeks before the skin has completely regenerated.
A wrinkle treatment can of course be supplemented with a liposuction on the same day. Eyelid correction (eyelid tightening) can also be performed in combination with the wrinkle treatment.
The stay for wrinkle injection
A session takes about 15 to 30 minutes. You can leave the selected specialists or beauty clinic immediately after the injection.
Facial treatment without anesthesia
Anesthesia / anesthesia is not necessary with the use of botulinum toxin or hyaluron, since the treatment is carried out without scalpel sections and is practically painless.
Botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid for wrinkle Treatment?
In rejuvenation surgery (anti-aging) as a discipline of cosmetics, there are two mainly practiced methods for wrinkle treatment. Which of these is preferable depends, among other things, on which region of the face is to be treated.
Botulinum toxin inhibits the transmission of nerve stimuli to the muscles. Since the substance only acts on the muscles in question, mimic wrinkles are smoothed without changing the facial expression. Botoxum toxin is injected into the botulinum toxin by means of a very fine needle. As with any injection, side effects such as inflammation, infection, redness, and pain may occur. Irrespective of this, treatment with botulinum toxin involves risks such as hypersensitivity reactions, local muscle weakness, headache and dizziness. A further list of possible side effects can be found on the Swissmedic specialist portal by entering the active substance botulinum toxin (VISTABEL). The duration of the treatment is limited to 4 to 7 months. The treatment can be repeated - but at the earliest 12 weeks after the previous injection and when its clinical effect has subsided.
Hyaluron occurs in almost all of our tissues. What makes it an active ingredient for wrinkle treatment is its enormous water-bonding capacity. The hyaluron is injected under the affected skin areas where it fills the wrinkles and gives the skin more volume, tension and elasticity. After treatment the effect lasts approximately 8 to 12 months. If the result lasts, you can repeat the procedure as often as you like, thus giving you a permanent permanent
What kind of treatment is suitable for my problem folds?
In general, botulinum toxin is suitable for the under-injection of facial folds. Cross folds in the front area as well as laughter boxes can be corrected in this way. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is primarily used for deep wrinkles - as already mentioned, for example, in the lateral folds between nasal wings and lips. In any case, you should always consult a qualified specialist.
Recovery time after wrinkle treatment
Immediately after injection, slight swelling may occur at the areas treated. In addition, you should protect your skin after wrinkle treatment for one or two days before persisting sun exposure.

Good to know about wrinkle treatment ...
The injection of botulinum toxin is the first choice for wrinkle treatment in the treatment of moderate to severe glabellaflaps in adults, also known as wrinkles. In the lower third of the face, liquid implants are the first choice for wrinkles. As a liquid implant, hyaluronic acid is used that is injected with a fine needle under the skin. The liquid implant is completely decomposed after 8 to 12 months.
