Botox is a purified botulinum toxin type A, which is used to inject mimic wrinkles. The practitioner administers a small amount of the preparation that temporarily blocks the neuromuscular transmission causing relaxation of individual facial muscles. The effect of the treatment is the temporary elimination of mimic wrinkles as well as the prevention of the deepening of wrinkles.
How does Botox work?
During the treatment the practitioner introduces Botox in the area of mimic wrinkles. It causes a reduction in muscle contraction, because the preparation acts on nerve cells. The effect lasts from 6 to 8 months. During the preparation, the skin looks fresh and natural, and the facial muscles rest.
What does treatment look like?
After the interview, the practitioner will arrange a treatment plan tailored to the needs of your face. Then, in the previously designated sites, they inject Botox with a fine needle. The procedure is quick and easy. The treatment lasts from several minutes to half an hour. It falls into the category of "lunch treatments" because it leaves virtually no traces. The treatment is not painful. At the application site feel light pricks. Nevertheless, people who are sensitive to pain before the procedure are advised to apply an anesthetic cream to Botox injection sites.
How to proceed after treatment?
The treatment is safe and does not leave any traces. There is redness which disappears after about an hour. You should not bend down and lie down for several hours after applying the preparation. Return to everyday activity is quite fast. It should be remembered that for the next few weeks, treatments that use radio waves, deep infrared or laser treatments, use of a solarium and a sauna are not recommended. They will weaken and shorten the duration of the preparation.
When can you expect the effects of the treatment?
Depending on the age, skin condition and application area, the desired effect is obtained within three to ten days after the treatment.
