Botulinum toxin injections

In aesthetic medicine, botulinum toxin injections (commonly called Botox® injections) help relax certain muscles causing wrinkles and fine lines. Botulinum toxin is reliable, safe and has been used in medicine for the past 40 years, especially in ophthalmology and neurology. More recently, it has also been used to treat facial expression wrinkles.

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.
