Botox (botulinum toxin) injections can be used to combat wrinkles without surgery. Botox is produced by American company Allergan. This preparation has been thoroughly tested and is completely safe. It has been used in aesthetic medicine for many years. Botox weakens the transmission of impulses from nerve endings to facial muscles, thus relaxing the muscles and smoothing expression lines and wrinkles as a result.
Indications for Botox injection
The procedure helps remove long expression lines on the forehead, so-called anger lines, fine lines around the eyes as well as asymmetric features. The procedure is indicated for mimic and age-related wrinkles as well as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the palms or armpits).
Contraindications to Botox injections:
- pregnancy and breastfeeding
- acute infections
- inflammatory processes in the skin
- neuromuscular transmission disorders
- oncological diseases
- individual intolerance of the preparation
A physician at Confido will make the final decision on the suitability of the procedure after the initial examination.
About the procedure: the procedure is performed with a syringe using a very thin needle. The medication is injected to a certain depth under the skin. The injections do not leave marks on the skin. The duration of the procedure depends on the number of injections required.
The effect becomes noticeable the day after the procedure, gradually increases and becomes maximally noticeable after two weeks. The effect lasts for an average of 2-4 months while weaning the patient off the habit of unnecessarily tightening the facial muscles and frowning. By the time the substance is completely absorbed, the habit of frowning has decreased or completely disappeared and new wrinkles appear much more slowly.
After the procedure: for the first 6-8 hours after the procedure, do not go to sleep or touch your face with your hands. Under no circumstances should you take medicines that affect blood clotting during the first 24 hours after the procedure. You must not take a bath or go to the sauna or solarium for the first three days. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, do not exercise or drink alcohol.
Frequently asked questions
- What are the disadvantages of Botox injections?
As a result of obstructing the working of the facial muscles, facial expressions will no longer be so varied. Botox should not be used too often.
- What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
One unit of Botox is more effective than one unit of Dysport. Botox is more often used to correct wrinkles in the upper third of the face (forehead, eyebrows, eyelids) as well as wrinkles around the mouth. Dysport is more commonly used to correct the lower third of the face, as well as for increased sweating (feet, palms, armpits, hands). However, both preparations are very similar.
- What determines the duration of effect?
The effect depends on the dosage of the preparation. The higher the dose, the longer the effect (however, a higher dose increases the risk of side effects).
- From what age are the beauty injections recommended?
After the age of 30. It is worth noting that with deep pronounced wrinkles (after the age of 60), the effectiveness of these procedures decreases.
