BÓTOX: TOXINA BOTULINUM TOXIN INORDER TO ELIMINATE WRINKLES
Let us care for you
The use of botulinum toxin makes it possible to soften and reduce expression wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles, eyebrows and crow’s feet, for which the most pronounced cases of deep wrinkles it is advisable to use treatment with hyaluronic acid filler. Subcutaneous injection of this toxin produces the effect of relaxing of the muscles in that area therefore eliminating the so-called “angry face” or crow’s feet when smiling.
This is done with a very fine needle that in some cases can produce a small bruise in the injection area and rarely produces adverse effects.
Botulinum toxin is also used in treatments to eliminate sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the armpits and hands. This treatment has transient effects that last between 6 and 8 months and is usually performed under local anaesthesia.
Botulinum toxin is the most widely used aesthetic technique worldwide. The subcutaneous injection of this protein in the muscles that we want to treat causes their relaxation and prevents muscle contraction. Therefore, it is the treatment of choice for expression wrinkles that appear when gesturing and that are primarily around the eyes and mouth. What we try to achieve is to raise the muscles that tend to contract more than normal and that will give you a more relaxed look and a brighter look.
Its effect is transitory and lasts approximately 4 to 6 months. Adverse effects are almost non-existent.
