Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a minimally invasive, effective treatment for facial rejuvenation without surgery. It blocks impulses between the nerve and the muscle, which causes the muscles to relax without changing their function. This eliminates the formation of wrinkles around the area of its application.
The appearance of deep and small facial wrinkles on the skin of the face is largely caused by the action of muscles in the most expressive areas — around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows and forehead — when we smile, yawn, frown, or squint our eyes.
When used in low doses, Botox is safe, long-lasting, and temporary. It can be used as a one-time treatment or as an adjunct to other procedures such as eyelid surgery, eyebrow lift, forehead lift, etc.
Botox begins to work approximately 7-10 days after injections and typically results will last from 3 to 6 months. With successive uses the effect lasts longer each time.
Treatment does not require anesthesia or sedation as it is painless and performed in a specialist’s treatment room. It is important to apply the right technique and dosage to get natural and satisfying results.
