Botulinum toxin injection is the most commonly performed aesthetic procedure worldwide according to ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons)
Botulinum toxin relaxes muscles by blocking impulses produced by facial nerves.
It is a neurotoxin that is synthesized and secreted by the bacterium Slostridium Botulinum. This discovery was registered in 1897 and in 1992 the first publications appeared on its use for aesthetic purposes. Botulinum toxin blocks the transmission of the nerve impulse from the neuron to the muscle fiber. The injected muscle thus remains in a permanent state of relaxation.
Botulinum toxin is also applied in the neck area, around the lips, to tighten the facial contour and shape the neck /Nefertiti Lift/. Botulinum toxin is able to erase the tired look and restore the youthful appearance and natural oval of the face.
It is also popularly used to control excessive sweating /hyperhidrosis/ on palms, armpits, soles, etc.
Botox injections have gained widespread popularity for their speed of action, reliability and safety. It is a tool that combines wonderfully with other rejuvenating treatments such as Mesotherapy, Fillers, laser rejuvenation, peels and others. In the long term, Botulinum Toxin treatments reduce the appearance of new wrinkles and can be used as prevention in younger patients.
The manipulation is short – it takes 10 – 15 minutes and is performed by a trained doctor.
The initial action of Botulinum toxin occurs within 2 – 5 days, and the final effect develops within 14 days. After its first insertion, the relaxation period lasts about 4-6 months. During this time it is broken down by enzymes in the body and the nerve endings regain their former function. The next injection /not earlier than 4 months/ guarantees a prolonged period of action.
Complications with Botulinum toxin therapy are minimal and transient.
Baby botox is a new injection technique that uses microinjections of low concentrated botulinum toxin to smooth fine lines, reduce sebum secretion and shrink pores.
