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.
Botox is an effective treatment option for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, which is a significant inconvenience for those with severe underarm sweating. Botox in Stamford or Norwalk, CT is used for hyperhidrosis of the palms, soles, face, back, and chest, temporarily blocking nerves that overstimulate the sweat glands.
The effect of treatment appears two to four days after the injection, and the pathology completely disappears after a week and sweating returns after about four to six months. Therefore, the treatment must be repeated two to three times a year. There are no contraindications to re-treatment.
Diluted microdroplet Botox is injected into one of the layers of the skin called the dermis and into the superficial layer of the facial muscles to smooth horizontal folds, reduce vertical stripes on the neck and improve the contour of the neck and jaw, the skin texture, color, and luster in this area of the body.
This method can be used in conjunction with fillers to minimize grooves and smooth thin skin. The Microdroplet Botox method also helps to reduce the activity of the sebaceous and sweat glands and to tighten the pores in the treated area.
