Botox


Treatment

Botulinum Toxin is a treatment that consists of injecting a fluid into the skin containing a natural purified protein that eliminates expression lines. It's not a filler and it doesn't get rid of the lines by supporting the weight of the skin, but acts instead on the face's muscles, relaxing them and giving the face a natural, younger look. 

Botulinum toxin injections are a safe treatment that does not require any allergy testing. In the USA, it has been used for some years now with excellent results. The dose administered is very low and does not accumulate over time, as it is reabsorbed by the body and eliminated through the kidneys.

There is no need for hospitalization and the treatment requires no anesthesia since it is painless. A very fine needle is used to inject a few drops of the product just below the surface of the skin, in those areas where facial expression usually occurs, such as the brow.

No noticeable change can be seen immediately after the treatment and normal life can be resumed without any sign of having undergone the treatment. Although rare, there is the possibility of a small amount of bruising, which can be disguised with make-up and will disappear in a few days.

The result of Botulinum injections starts to be noticed between the third and fifth day and, during the first two weeks, the lines gradually disappear. Rejuvenation is evident and your facial expression is more relaxed.

During the first year, treatment is carried out every 4 months, although an application every 6 months is enough as from the second year.

Botox is never used to add volume. What the Botox does is to relax the musculature to attenuate expression wrinkles, and to prevent and delay the appearance of new ones.

It is very important to see a qualified professional with wide experience, to achieve a natural and harmonious result. Many of my patients tell me that they are told “they look very good”. What is important is to make your face to look younger without being noticed. Do not forget that Botox is a preventive treatment and the best is to start applying it before the expression wrinkles appear.
