Wrinkle treatments:
A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin resulting from repeated muscular contractions and/or from cutaneous stress and/or a loosening phenomenon of environmental, genetic, hormonal and nutritional origins.

Treatment of upper facial wrinkles with botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is a substance blocking the transmission of nerve signals to muscles. It prevents the contractions of the muscle, and therefore the wrinkle to form. The effect of botulinum toxin is considered to be reversible after 4 to 6 months.

Because of its reversible nature, any side effects of the treatment are temporary and disappear quickly. No prior allergy test is required. The results can be seen within 72 hours and peak 10 to 15 days later. In most cases, 2 injections per year are necessary. Theoretically, after several years of treatment, the anti-aging effects on wrinkles last longer.

Botulinum toxin is used to treat some upper facial wrinkles.

Wrinkle treatment by filling

Swiss Riviera Medical Center SA mainly uses hyaluronic acid as filling product. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule found in most living organisms. Its function is to carry and bind water, making it an important molecule for the treatment of wrinkles. Its effects last approximately 6 to 12 months depending on the extent of cross-linking of the product, the quality of the skin, the treated area, and lifestyle of the patient. This procedure mainly targets naso-labial folds, marionette lines, peri-oral wrinkles, etc.
