The repeated contraction of facial muscles may lead to frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet as we age. Botox injections are a non-surgical way of erasing these obvious signs of aging. Dynamic lines appear with every smile, laugh or frown.
These can result in wrinkles which are visible even when you are not showing emotion. Botox injections block the nerve signals which lead to muscle contraction so the overlying skin will be smooth and unwrinkled. You will still be able to smile or frown, but without the wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is also used to balance facial asymmetry and relax tight neck bands. The procedure is simple with minimal discomfort, takes only a few minutes and you can directly return to your usual activity.

Dr. Monique Stengel will perform very exact injections into the chosen areas. The effect will be visible within a few days with continued smoothing of the skin after the first treatment. The duration of effect is between four and six months, and long-term maintenance of smooth skin can be accomplished by repeated treatments.
Other wrinkles or creases in the face caused by the weakening or sinking of the soft tissue, for example the nasolabial folds, which extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, are best treated with fillers.
