Is botulinum toxin a safe preparation?
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. You need a thorough 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 amounts the preparation will be administered. The solution is also not to be checked by a doctor, but to perform the procedure by an unauthorized person.
– therapy regimen
The time needed for the injection is usually around 30 minutes. The person performing it also does not use anesthesia, because it is practically painless in itself.
Finally, it should be mentioned that after the injection is finished, the patient can immediately return to work.
- massage at injection sites should be avoided for several days
- warming up should be avoided for 2-3 days after the treatment – warm baths, solariums, sun or intense exercise
Now that we know what the therapy scheme looks like, let’s move on to the description
what botulinum toxin is at all.
Description of the procedure
It is a powerful natural neurotoxin that works by blocking the connections between nerves and muscles, i.e. neuromuscular synapses. Then there is no contraction of the paralyzed muscle.
Due to this action, the toxin has found medical application in the treatment of various diseases. For the elimination of mimic wrinkles, very low concentrations of the toxin are used, which do not affect other elements of the nervous system except the area undergoing the treatment.
Effect - when it arises
and how long it lasts?
The effect of the action appears gradually.
Usually after 2-3, and sometimes even after about 7 days.
We speak of the full effect of the toxin 14 days after the treatment. The results usually last over 6 months. The skin is visibly refreshed, smooth and the wrinkles are flattened. Only with time they return to the appearance before the treatment, then it should be repeated.
