Botulinum toxin (Botox) is very effective in treating age related changes of the skin. It is also used in the treatment of excess sweating and migraine.
Botulinum causes the muscle to relax and in effect the wrinkles disappear. Skin becomes smooth and wrinkle free. The results can be seen 5-7 days after the treatment and will last for approximately 5 months.
Botulinum is used on the forehead, around the eye area, neck and decolte area and for the lifting of the eyebrows and corners of the mouth.
Excess sweating can be treated with botulinum and you can receive contribution towards the cost of the drug from the social insurance institute of Finland (KELA). We use a high quality and safe pharmaceutical botulinum toxin here at Ihoakatemia.
Hyaluronic Acid (Filorga X-HA3, Juvaderm and Restylane) is used as a dermal and soft tissue filler for facial rejuvenation (wrinkle filler), it is injected under the skin. It evens out any skin depression, folds and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid abolishes from the body after couple of months. It also rehydrates the skin very effectively. Dermal Fillers are very quick and easy to use and they can be injected during the consultation and renewed when necessary.
Injectable Dermal fillers are most commonly used to even out the wrinkles between the eye brows and the wrinkles of the corners of the mouth and nose.
You may want to consider the fat grafting procedure (fat grafting), if you need large volumes of dermal fillers or if you need regular recurrent treatments.
