Reduction of mimic wrinkles with botulinum toxin
Botulinum toxin is a proven and one one of the most effective methods of getting rid of wrinkles.
Wrinkles that age us and give the face an expression of fatigue should be leveled, and yet their removal with botulinum toxin type A is one of the most effective and, above all, non-surgical methods.
Injections cause relaxation of the muscles responsible for their formation. This is to prevent the deepening of wrinkles and their reduction. Proper therapy with botulinum toxin gives satisfactory and, above all, natural results. The face looks refreshed, younger and more relaxed.
Is botulinum toxin safe?
Yes of course! However, there are a few things you need to pay attention to. It is important that the procedure is performed by a doctor, not a beautician. This requires a solid knowledge of anatomy and knowledge of how muscles work. Beauticians usually have limited knowledge. It is the doctor who should decide where and in what quantities the preparation will be administered. The solution is also not to be controlled by a doctor, but to perform the procedure by an unauthorized person.
– therapy scheme
The time we need to carry out the injection is usually about 30 minutes. The person performing it also does not use anesthesia, because in itself it is practically painless.
Finally, it should be mentioned that after the injection is completed, the patient can immediately return to work.
- massage of the injection sites should be avoided for several days
- you should avoid heating for 2-3 days after the procedure – warm baths, solarium, sun or intense physical effort
Now that we know what the therapy scheme looks like, let’s move on to the description
what exactly is botulinum toxin.
It is a potent natural neurotoxin that works by blocking the connections between nerves and muscles, i.e. it blocks the so-called neuromuscular synapses. There is no contraction of the paralyzed muscle.
Through such action, the toxin has found medical use in the treatment of various diseases. To eliminate mimic wrinkles, very low concentrations of the toxin are used, which do not affect other elements of the nervous system outside the area subjected to the procedure.
Efekt - kiedy powstaje
i jak długo się utrzymuje?
Efekt działania pojawia się stopniowo.
Najczęściej po 2-3, a czasami nawet po około 7 dniach.
O pełnym działaniu toksyny mówimy po 14 dniach od zabiegu. Rezultaty utrzymują się najczęściej ponad 6 miesięcy. Skóra jest widocznie wypoczęta, gładka, a zmarszczki są wypłaszczone. Dopiero z czasem wracają do wyglądu sprzed zabiegu, wtedy należy go powtórzyć.
