Botulinum toxin

The proven time-saving method for your face

Globally, Botox continues to rank first in the desired and most used anti-aging methods. Although the revolutionary processes in dermatology are not just permanent and quickly introduced in beauty studios and medical teams like ours, even less painful and invasive procedures cannot overtake Botox in popularity. The reason, of course, is one and it is completely logical. Botox is highly effective both in dealing with already visible skin imperfections and in preventing new signs of aging.

What is Botox?

Botox is a procedure for dealing with wrinkles of different types and “ages”, in which a neuroparalytic complex substance is injected. In its composition, the main active agent is botulinum toxin (hence the name of the product). Botulinum toxin is defined as a muscle relaxant. Its effect is paralyzing the muscle fibers. On the one hand, they relax and the skin is visibly smoothed, but on the other hand, unwanted future aging of the skin is achieved. Patients who first use Botox are most often concerned about the fact that some type of toxin is entering their body. It should be noted, however, that its side effects are not life-threatening. Moreover, botulinum toxin is used in a number of other medical, non-dermatological and aesthetic therapies, including in children – for example for the treatment of muscle cramps, double vision and squinting, migraine, increased sweat gland function, urinary abnormalities bladder or intestines.

Botox – how will it help me?

In aesthetic medicine it is associated mainly with reducing wrinkles. Usually, Botox achieves extremely good results not only in small but also in medium and severe skin imperfections. It works much more effectively than dermal filler, which is why it is also recommended for older wrinkles. This is the most successful procedure against facial wrinkles. For example, the so-called “angry wrinkle” that appears in the area between the eyes, just above the nose, can be filled with only one Botox procedure. The same goes for the crow’s feet effect, which appears over time in the area around the eyes. And although the therapy is temporary, it gives quite fast and extremely satisfactory results up to three days after the performance.

What do we need to know about therapy?

After consultation with our specialist, you will get a clear idea of what you can expect as an effect of botulinum toxin injection. Usually, the therapy proceeds as follows:

  • Review by our specialist. During the examination, you will be given guidelines on what to avoid before the procedure – for example, taking certain medications and supplements.
  • Preliminary preparation of the face, including thorough cleaning.
  • Injection of a botulinum complex with an extremely thin needle. It does not cause pain. This is possible and to a minimum only in people with extremely low pain threshold.
  • Avoid lying down within 3-4 hours after the procedure.
  • The visible effect occurs within 3 days, and it is most noticeable after 2-3 weeks. During the first days, small hematomas and bruises can be observed, which disappear over time.
  • Botox should be repeated every 4-6 months for lasting effect.

Contraindications to the procedure

Botox is a rejuvenating and beautifying procedure that is usually recommended for people between 30 and 60 years old. However, not everyone is subject to that treatment. The injection of botulinum toxin can adversely affect the skin and body of a certain group of people. Fortunately, this is an extremely small group of patients who are advised to avoid the procedure. Read more carefully about the specific contraindications for Botox and in any case do not undergo the procedure even if they convince you that there is nothing scary in it:

  • In the presence of an officially diagnosed myasthenia gravis. This is a specific autoimmune disease in which the symptoms develop mainly on the nervous system. The disease is typical with the following signs: muscle weakness, easy and rapid exhaustion of the body and frequent headaches. In this regard, all patients with neurological diseases should also be careful when choosing a beauty procedure. Some of these diseases have contraindications for Botox.
  • In case of pregnancy, Botox is not recommended. Although there is no scientific data on the effect of the procedure on breastfeeding and the baby, we personally advise you to avoid the procedure during breastfeeding.
  • People with severe lung disease should also refrain. These are serious diseases such as lung cancer or severe late-stage fibrosis.
  • Botox should not be used in patients with glaucoma.
  • Do not undergo the procedure if you have an inflammatory process in your body (including on the skin where Botox will be applied), if you have recently had or still have the flu and have been treated with antibiotics.

What are the main undeniable advantages?

Undoubtedly, Botox is among the most preferred aesthetic interventions for a number of reasons. The procedure is painless and has a relatively long-lasting effect, but perhaps its most positive side is the fact that it is a universal correction for our appearance. In fact, Botox removes wrinkles of all types. In addition, the intervention itself is fast, and its effect is even faster and visible only a few days – up to 72 hours after injection of botulinum toxin.
