Botulinum toxin injection is an effective, tolerant and safe method to eliminated unpleasant mimic wrinkles. It changes appearance within its natural parameters, something, which is desiarable by patients and which has been proven over the years of its use. Botulinum toxin is synthesized by specific bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. There are several types of this toxin in nature as type A and rarely type B are used for medical purposes.
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin. It blocks the transmission of nerve impulses from the nerve to the muscle fiber. Thus, the muscle which is injected with the toxin does not contract and remains in a state of relaxation.
The most appropriate age for applying botox is after 30. If we should fix an age limit, it has to be after the age of 55. Of course, concepts begin to change and in combination with other procedures, a botulinum toxin can be applied at a more advanced age, and as wrinkle prevention – at a younger age.
Botulinum toxin injection is the most successful non-surgical way to treat mimic wrinkles on forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. The firs visible result occurs between 48-72 hours and remains for 4-7 months. If you need a slight correction, you may get it up to the second week after treatment.
