Wrinkels determine our facial expressions. But starting at a certain age our facial wrinkles can be experienced as disruptive. Some facial wrinkles are not treatable by way of laser therapy. That is why we have a monthly consultation hour in our Skin Expertise Centre with a Dermatoligist. Marco van Coevorden. Apart from treating wrinkles, dr. van Coevorden also treats socalled gummy smiles, excessive sweating, migraine, and teeth grinding.

Profhilo is an injecatble of hyaluronic acid that is used with skin aging in the face, neck, back of the hands and cleavage. It is an injecatble of two types of thinned hyaluronic acid that improves skin structure. Skin aging often results in loss of elasticity. Profhilo results in renewal and ''remodelling'' of the skin. It is a technically simpe treatment, quick and almost riskless. A profhilo treatment needs to be repeated 3-4 times with an interval of 4-6 weeks.
Gummy smile treatment
Some people have visible gums when they smile and experience it as cosmetically disruptive, of are ashamed of it. A gummy smile treatment lower the tension in the upper lip muscles, this results in the upperlip retreating more slowly when smiling.
Botulinetoxine (better known as ‘botox’) is a neurotixic poison that is used to reduce wrinkles. The conduction of signals towards the muscle is blocked partially, so the muscle react with less intensity. by the muscle not contracting, the skin stays smooth and wrinkles wont become visible. Botulinetoxin is very suitable for exmaple to reduce the wrinkling on the forehead. For more information about botulinetoxin and wrinkles, click here.
Botulinetoxin needs time to spread and to be taken up. How fast the result is visible, depends per patient. Generally, the result is visible aften halve a week. After two weeks the effect is maximal. The skin is smoother and look fresher and younger. The effect of the fist botulin toxin treatment will be visible for about three to four weeks. After the repeating treatment, the effect will normally last longer, usually four to six months.

you do not have to specifically take anything in account before the treatment. When you are treated in the facial area, make sure to come to your appointment with a clean face.
During the injectable treatment
The different injectable treatments are more or less painless Depending on the amount of injections you will feel some small pricks. Generally, 5-7 injections are made. The treatment takes 15-60 minuts on average.
After the injecables treatment
After the botulin toxin injections the treated skin can be a little red, this pulls away in a few hours. when all the injection holes are closed up, you can camouflage these with make-up. After the profhilo treatment the area of injection can bruise slightly, this will pull away in a few days. We advise to not do any intense activities in the 24 hours after the treatment. try to stay away from exercise, bright sunlight and tanning beds. UV-light can change the result.
