Botox Facelift

Procedure

It is a non-surgical method for correction of wrinkles on the face. The botulinum toxin causes a temporary and reversible relaxation of the frown muscles, which leads to smoothing out of the lines and wrinkles in the treated area. After the first administering the result is eliminated within four months of application. Follow-up procedures extend the effect from six to eight months. After three or four consequent applications, a pause is recommended to allow the recovery of the contractile ability of the treated muscle. Botox is administered in the muscle via tiny injections with a thin needle. The effect is felt after three to seven days.

Duration

From five to ten minutes.

Anesthesia

No anesthesia is needed for this procedure. In some cases contact anesthesia may be applied.

Inpatient / Outpatient

The procedure is performed in an outpatient facility.

Side Effects

Temporary discomfort, slight stinging feeling, slight bruising and swelling, reddening of the skin in the treated area.

Risks

Blocking of the neighbouring muscles, leading to temporary dysfunction.

Recovery

The patient may return to work immediately after the procedure. In the event of bruises and swelling, the skin of the face must be protected using a sunblock that provides both UVA and UVB protection.

Fractional Laser Facelift

Procedure

It is also called laser rejuvenation of the skin. It is an innovative non-invasive method for removing fine wrinkles and lines on the face, with the help of carbon dioxide /Co2/ laser with a fractioning scanner system. With the standard laser rejuvenation of the skin, the effect is achieved by destroying a rather compact layer, and thus there is a higher risk for dispigmentation. The fractional laser resurfacing uses a cutting edge technology where only a cylindrical fraction of the skin is susceptible, with intact areas between the treated zones, which allows for a faster and better recovery. The method is applicable for the treatment of the neck, the neckline and arms.

Duration

Between twenty and forty minutes.

Anesthesia

No anesthesia is needed for this procedure. In some cases contact anesthesia may be applied. It is also possible to perform the procedure under intravenous sedation, combined with local anesthesia.

Inpatient / Outpatient

The procedure is performed in an outpatient facility.

Side Effects

Temporary discomfort, slight stinging, pain, swelling and reddening of the skin. Increased sensitivity towards sunlight and/or cosmetics. These effects wear off between five days and two weeks after the procedure. Rarely it might take between one to three months.

Risks

Viral or bacterial infections of the skin. Very rarely – dispigmentation.

Recovery

The patient may return to work between five days and two weeks after the procedure. All strenuous efforts during the recovery period should be avoided. The skin of the face must be protected using a sunblock that provides both UVA and UVB protection during the first three to six months after the procedure.
