Botulinum toxin injections is the most popular injection method in aesthetic beauty treatment. Botulinum toxin has been widely used in medicine all over the world for more than 15 years. It is used not only in aesthetic medicine, but also in neurology and ophthalmology.
The botulinum toxin effect is based on forming links at the connections of muscles and nerves, preventing transmission of nerve impulses which is required in order for the muscle to be able to contract. Botulinum toxin causes relaxation of muscles and smoothes out wrinkles.
By means of botulinum toxin it is possible to eliminate mimic wrinkles between eyebrows, around eyes, on the forehead, around the nose and mouth.
A botulinum toxin injection does not cause any pain. The blocking effect is achieved within 3-4 days and is maintained for 3 to 6 months. The effect term depends on several factors, like the patient’s age, skin condition, the place of injection. In order to maintain the effect for a longer time, I recommend to refrain from going to sauna, consuming alcohol, staying in direct sunshine and using the sunbed for 2 weeks.
