Botox - say goodbye to wrinkles

Botulinum Toxin Type A

Botulinum toxin, or Botox as is most commonly known, is an enzyme produced by bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It is one of the strongest biological poisons since it achieves its paralytic effect by rapidly blocking neuromuscular transmission. It was introduced into medical practice by Dr. Alan Scott as a muscle relaxant in patients with painful spasms. 

The first results for cosmetic purposes were published by Dr. Richard Clark from California in 1989, and official approval for use in cosmetics was issued by the FDA on April 12, 2002. Since then, according to statistics, more than a million people in America have used botox.

The Most Popular Aesthetic Treatment for Wrinkle Removal

Botox is a word that has long been synonymous with all non-surgical anti-aging treatments that involve injecting certain substances subcutaneously to remove, or reduce the visibility of, wrinkles. In fact, this is a unique non-surgical method in which a certain amount of substance is applied under the skin so that it paralyzes a specific muscle that participates in facial expressions.

The procedure helps the reduction and removal of face lines, which were the product of making facial expressions, i.e. frowning or lifting a certain facial muscle. The method proved to be the most effective for horizontal lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.

In addition to the aesthetic benefits of correcting wrinkles, botox is also successfully used to solve the problem of excessive underarm sweating – hyperhidrosis. After the treatment, the secretion of the sweat glands is significantly reduced and the effects of the treatment last up to a year. The treatment is painless, perhaps only somewhat unpleasant, it is done with the finest needles and does not last long.

Although many people are afraid of possible complications, the performance of this treatment by a professional doctor leaves no place for doubt.

The Treatment Description

After an agreement with the doctor and an examination of the facial muscles, a local anesthetic in the form of a cream or gel is applied to the client, while ice compresses have also proven to be successful. Then, using the finest needles, the substance is injected under the skin in the regions of the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes (so-called “glabellar lines” or “crow’s feet”). By precise application, we target the exact muscle used to create those lines. When muscle contraction is disabled, the skin begins to visibly tighten and wrinkles slowly disappear.

The treatment is painless, there are not many stitches, and it does not last long. Redness may occur at the injection points, while mild bruises are less frequent, and they quickly disappear and or are covered with makeup. After the treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities. Results become visible after 1–3 days and last 4–6 months after the first treatment. After each subsequent application, the effects last longer.

Baby Botox, a less potent type, has appeared on the market in the previous years. It is a go-to choice for clients who want smaller changes and greater muscle mobility retained.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

For visible results, one treatment is usually enough, but if you want to prolong the effect, you may undergo the treatment again, based on the doctor’s recommendations, after a certain time, the length of which differs for each person. That is why it is best to schedule  a free consultation with our doctor, who will determine what is best for you!

Warning: The treatment must not be performed if there is any skin change or infection in the places where the substance should be applied. People sensitive to any component of the device should not use it, and neither should people with certain neurological disorders. Also, pregnant and lactating women are in the risk group due to the increased risk of side effects. To be safe, it is best to consult your doctor before scheduling a treatment.
