Application of botulotoxin is one of the most popular minimally invasive procedures in the field of aesthetic dermatology. It is exceptional in terms of its effect, relative ease for the client and price in comparison with other, similar procedures.

What Botox is and how it works

Botox is a safe and proven product from the company Allergan. It contains type-A botulotoxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks muscle function by deactivating the nerve endings that control muscles. Botox is applied by a doctor using a thin needle at precisely the given place that we want to influence, usually into muscle tissue.

The most common uses of Botox

 Face:

  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines – prevention of the formation of new wrinkles or at least restriction of the deepening of existing wrinkles.
  • Smoothing of horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.
  • Treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows above the nose (glabella). Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows) give the face an irritated, unpleasant expression.
  • Crow’s feet, i.e. wrinkles on the outer corners of the eyes.
  • Smoothing of wrinkles around the lips to improve the appearance of one’s smile.
  • Reduction of eyelid drooping and eye fatigue by adjusting the position of the eyebrows.

The effect most commonly becomes apparent within 2-7 days following application and usually lasts 3-6 months.

Excessive sweating:

  • Reduction of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in areas such as the underarms, palms and soles.

Improvement is seen within 1-2 weeks following application and the effect usually lasts 7-12 months.

After application of Botox

  • For four hours following treatment, do not touch the area of application, do not bend forward, do not bend backward and do not lie in a horizontal position.
  • For one day after treatment, avoid physical strain and do not visit the tanning salon, sauna or places where there is a risk of overheating your body.
  • For three days after treatment, do not undergo any cosmetic procedures (you can gently apply makeup six hours after application).

It is not necessary to have a doctor’s recommendation for treatment.
