BOTULINUM TOXIN (BOTOX)
Botox or Dysport (Botulinum toxin type A) is nowadays the first most popular and common non-invasive method to remove facial wrinkles in the upper part of the face.
Once injected, the toxin temporarily blocks the movement of certain muscles causing the disappearance of frown lines (glabella wrinkles) that in the long term develop into deep, permanent lines. The toxin functions as a stop-the-clock method and does not five an unnatural expression on the face, as it may be mistakenly believed. As a result, when the procedure is regularly carried out, it leads to significant delay of permanent and deep lines and wrinkles, due to the muscular relaxation in the specific areas of the face it is applied.
After the injection, as long as it is administered by an experienced, licensed doctor, the patient’s face looks youthful, relaxed, fresh and supple with a healthy glow.
The most common areas for the use of botox are the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes- especially on wrinkles on the outer corner of the eyes commonly referred to as crow’s feet.
Additionally, it can be applied on upper-lip wrinkling, mental chin creases, nasoglabellar lines, nasal scrunch and neck wrinkles.
The results of botox treatment are generally observed within one week, last 4 to 6 months and vary depending on age, the severity of wrinkles and the patient’s organism.
