BOTULINUM TOXIN Mimic wrinkles are those caused by mimic muscles’ activities. They are most visible in areas of thin-layer subcutaneous tissues, which are on the forehead, between eyebrows and around eyes. Especially wrinkles between eyebrows might give us bother since we can appear angry, gloomy, frowning. The best way of removing them and preventing their deepening is application of Botulinum Toxin, type A. Today, next to everybody has once heard about the ‘Botox’ in the connection with the wrinkles removal. However, not all of them know that this substance is used not only in medical cosmetology but in neurology and ophthalmology (eye medicine) for removal, e.g. muscle twitches or squints, as well as for the removal of excessive sweating.
THE BASIS AND TREATMENT PROCEDURE Extremely small concentrations of Botulinum Toxin, type A, are applied through a very thin needle in the region of a mimic muscle that we want to affect; it starts to impact the muscle after approx. 5 days. Botulinum Toxin prevents the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles, which temporarily lose ability to contract, so the mimic wrinkle slowly becomes smooth. It is an outpatient procedure, it is fast (it takes 15-20 min), therefore you can easily have this session in your lunch break time. The effect is not permanent, so everybody can decide on this method, and whether they want to continue. The effect normally lasts 4-6 months, after more applications even longer. Caution! Botulinum Toxin must be applied by a certified and experienced doctor. The application by non-doc, e.g. beautician is not allowed!
