Wrinkle Treatments with muscle relaxant medication and Hyaluronic Acid
Like the skin of the entire body, facial skin, too, is subject to permanent aging processes. In the course of life, the proportion of elastic fibres decreases and gravity pulls the skin down.
Over the years, glabellar frown lines, laugh lines, and all kinds of expression lines appear on the face.
Additionally, the aging process is greatly accelerated by external influences.
Sun-rays: Like the artificial UV light of sunbeds, they lead to the formation of so-called radicals, which are chemical substances that strongly interfere with the skin’s metabolism.
Smoking: Every cigarette slows down the skin’s blood supply for about four hours, and this lack of supply with nutrients amplifies the aging process. After a couple of years, the consequences are without exception visible on the skin.
Genetic predisposition: Some people age earlier, others keep looking young for a long time. This is nature’s bounty, which can only be influenced indirectly.
While muscle relaxant medication is often used to treat expression lines, hyaluronic acid is suited for filling skin lines and larger tissue defects. Wrinkle treatment with autologous fat is very well suited to refill lacking fat depots in the face and thus to restore a younger look. At Park-Klink Birkenwerder/Berlin, even deep folds between nose and mouth can be very well filled with autologous fat.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for a personal consultation. Our surgeons will review, explain in detail, and discuss your options regarding »wrinkle treatments« at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin.
How are glabellar frown lines removed?
On the forehead, 11 lines or glabellar frown lines are often considered bothersome. They are due to excessive contraction of small muscles located between the root of the nose and the brows. Basically, there are two treatment options:
to remove the muscles (endoscopic forehead lift or upper lid surgery)
to paralyse the muscles with muscle relaxant medication, which is a neurotoxin.
It does not make a lot of sense to only use injectable fillers, because muscle tension will continue to crease the skin and thus to cause the folds.
Wrinkle Treatment with muscle relaxant medication
The treatment of expression lines and folds with muscle relaxant medication is a common procedure in plastic surgery and it is considered to be safe because of the many years of experience in clinical use. It is an in-office treatment, and apart from a mild burning or stinging sensation during injection, it is painless.
Forehead wrinkles and glabellar lines as well as crow‘s feet are significantly reduced so that you will have a more awake, a friendlier and more youthful appearance.
At Park-Klink Birkenwerder/Berlin, wrinkle treatment with muscle relaxant medication is performed during our out-patient consultation hours. No anaesthesia is required. The treatment’s full effect will become visible about 2 to 7 days later. The procedure is almost risk-free when performed by an experienced practitioner and, you can quickly achieve excellent results, which last about 4-6 months, depending on the area of use and the individual patient.
The muscle relaxant medication
Muscle relaxant medication inhibits the transmission of nerve signals to facial muscles. The treated muscle groups are immobilized in whole or in part so that wrinkles or lines, which are caused by the muscles pulling on the skin, disappear completely or are much less pronounced.
What complications can arise from a treatment with muscle relaxant medication?
The treatment of expression lines with a muscle relaxant is a common procedure in plastic surgery and, based upon the many years of experience in clinical use, it has come to be considered as safe. In rare cases, redness or haematoma can occur. In very rare cases, it may cause allergic reactions. Only in very rare cases, a temporary paralysis of the facial muscles (eyelid, corners of the mouth) that exceeds the desired extent can occur. However, this will vanish after a couple of weeks at the latest.

Wrinkle treatment with Hyaluronic Acid
Filler injections with hyaluronic acid are suited for skin rejuvenation, filling tissue and replacing volume. By injecting into the lines and folds, hyaluronic acid elevates the skin level so that it is adjusted to the surrounding tissue.
A common example for a treatment with hyaluronic acid is nasolabial folds (from the nasal wing to the corner of the mouth). When these lines are deep, the face often looks harder and older. The injection with hyaluronic acid reduces lines and folds, compensates volume loss and increase skin tone.
Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid may be used in various areas:
Filler injections in the upper lip area, lip contouring and lip enhancement
Touch up of small wrinkles of the décolletage, on the back of the hands, the neck, cheeks and around the eyes
Filler injections for acne scars, smoothing glabellar folds, lifting the eyebrow in case of droopy eyelids, filler injection into the tear-trough in case of bags under the eyes
No anaesthesia is required. Mesotherapy with hyaluronic acid is offered at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin during out-patient consultation hours. Results are immediately visible and last about 6-12 months.
