Over time, as we naturally age, overactive muscle movement gradually wears away the collagen in our skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkles to appear. Line and wrinkle relaxers and fillers treatments relax these muscles preventing the formation of wrinkles and smoothing out lines. Line and wrinkle treatments work only on the specific muscles injected, leaving the surrounding muscles to function as usual, enabling normal facial expression, just with less wrinkles.
Aesthetic medicine and specifically cosmetic injectables, provide one of the simplest, most effective ways to get immediate results. Even though injectables have vastly improved over the years, the outcome still depends on the refined approach and artistic ability of the practitioner who delivers it.
At Prive-Swiss MediSpa, we don’t use injectables to change how you look, just to highlight your natural beauty. Our team of highly-trained aesthetic specialists will work with you to obtain your aesthetic goals by providing natural-looking results with the highest level of care while striving to provide our patients with superior medical artistry.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions. Treatment of BOTOX® Cosmetic can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to essentially disappear. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a formulation of botulinum toxin type A. It is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium produces a protein that blocks the release of acetylcholine to relax muscles. Type A is just one of seven different types of botulinum toxin. The way it works is your brain sends electrochemical messages to your muscles to make them contract and move. These messages are transmitted from a nerve to the muscle by a substance called acetylcholine. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerve from releasing acetylcholine. As a result, the muscle spasms stop or are greatly reduced, providing relief from symptoms. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in small doses directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows to form, allowing that area to smooth out. It will not affect your ability to laugh, smile or otherwise express yourself.
BOTOX® is a wrinkle relaxer and filler that works best as a preventive measure to keep lines and wrinkles from forming or worsening. They smooth lines already formed by years of muscle contraction and prevent them from deepening. BOTOX® is used to treat wrinkles that are created by movement in the face. For people that struggle with the lines and wrinkles to the “11’s”, the forehead, and eyes, this wrinkle relaxer offers the best results. BOTOX® can also be used off label to soften lines around the mouth or create a “lip flip” exposing more lip for those who do not want fillers. Wrinkles relaxers can also help minimize the appearance of a ‘gummy smile’. Overall, appropriate doses of BOTOX® to a variety of areas of your face will create a youthful and refreshed appearance.
BOTOX®, is also FDA approved for treating excessive underarm sweating that is not adequately managed with topical agents. Typical results last 6-9 months.
Commonly Asked Questions:

When do you see results and how long do they last?
Results can be seen between days 5-7. We recommend waiting a total of 2 weeks before full results are achieved. 1 touchup session, if needed, is included with each treatment. Results typically last 3-4 months.
Who Performs BOTOX® injections?
BOTOX® injections are only administered by our highly skilled and experienced professional staff. Our skilled practitioners combine anatomy, mathematics, and art to create a subtle, perfect look tailored specifically to you.
and Fillers | Dermal Fillers
Like most cosmetic procedures, injecting dermal fillers is an art. Your provider needs more than the educational knowledge of how to inject. They need the artistic ability to know where to inject, a fine attention to detail and a clear understanding of the goals of their patients.
Most patients are thrilled with their results and plan to maintain them with follow-up procedures. For a clinical, or statistical evaluation of Juvederm, Drugs.com’s website contains information on clinical trials that demonstrated improvements of up to 90% after one treatment. At Privé-Swiss MedSpa, your treatment will not only be delivered by some of the most skilled practitioners around, it will also be done in a soothing and safe environment, where patients come first.
and Fillers | Juvéderm Collection of Fillers
This non-surgical aesthetic treatment is becoming more and more popular because it is quicker, less painful and more subtle than plastic surgery. JUVÉDERM® is a long-lasting, non-surgical option that contains a modified form of HA (Hyaluronic Acid), which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This means it not only fills wrinkles but also replaces what the skin has lost over time.
Fillers that include HA are a top choice for patients—over 90% of filler patients receive an HA dermal filler.* JUVÉDERM® is the #1 dermal filler collection in the world that offers 5 different products to meet your specific needs. Add volume to plump lips, smooth lines, or lift & contour cheeks—we have what you need to get the results you want.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first filler approved by the FDA to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. Voluma XC is made of Hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, and it’s the only Juvéderm filler that can last up to 2 years. Among other dermal fillers, Juvéderm Voluma XC has the most minimal downtime. You should be able to resume your normal activities 24 hours after the procedure, and the side effects are moderate that generally last 2 to 4 weeks.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
Juvederm Vollure features the same advanced technology used in Voluma, which extends the effectiveness of the filler for up to 18 months. Vollure is specifically formulated to address nasolabial folds, the wrinkles that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth and which happen to be the most common area for using fillers.
First approved by the FDA in 2006, JUVÉDERM® XC corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses lines or “smile lines” around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Many of our patients want fuller lips and Juvederm Volbella delivers! JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults over the age of 21.
Volbella is a soft, smooth gel that subtly enhances the lips and it’s also approved by the FDA to soften the fine lines that develop around the mouth. It’s the latest filler in the Juvéderm family of products available in the U.S., and it’s just one more way our injectors can work with you to create beautiful, natural results. This product is also infused with lidocaine for improved comfort and can last up to 12 months.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips—in adults over the age of 21. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also approved for smoothing and correcting moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), in adults.
and Fillers | Kybella®
Does your double chin bother you? Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment that is approved by the FDA to reduce the fat that causes a double chin. It offers a safe and effective alternative to neck liposuction, which has been the only option for men and women.
Kybella injections target this stubborn fat, streamlining the neck and jawline for a slimmer, younger appearance. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. Since April 2015, Kybella has been revolutionizing the world of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, and many in the cosmetic industry are hailing it as the biggest innovation since Botox.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections and treatments will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
