One of the most popular rejuvenation procedures is the application of Botulinum toxin – refined form of botulinum toxin type A, product of bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. When injected in certain face muscles in small doses, it blocks the nerve impulses of those muscles responsible for movements that can cause wrinkles. With this toxin it is possible to correct the uppermost third part of face muscles – from the eye area and above.
Before the procedure, treated area is disinfected and anesthetized with topical anesthesia – in cream. There is no need for other special preparation. Before the intervention itself, you will fill in a questionnaire and inform the doctor in case you have any specific condition or special therapy.
Botulinum toxin is injected directly into muscles responsible for creation of horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles, as well as wrinkles on the outside of the eye area and in the root of the nose.
Recovery and results
It is important to avoid head banding, hard physical activities, solarium and sun exposure in the next 24h after the treatment. Few days after the procedure the result is gradually visible as the toxin activates. Movements are not entirely unabled, but highly restricted making fewer wrikles or complitely unvisible. The procedure should be repeated once in a few months.
Redness, skin itchiness, small swelling and bruises are possible and will disappear in a few days. In some cases patients may experience weakness in the surrounding muscles. In rare cases patients may feel small and temporary eyelid or eyebrow drop, which disappears within 1-2 weeks. Severe complications are not expected when the procedure is done by an experienced physician.
