Botulinum toxin therapy
The term "Botox" refers to botulinum toxin.
Botulinum toxin is a neuroparalytic toxin that disrupts the conduction of nerve impulses to muscles and glands.
Since the 70s of the last century, it has been successfully used in various fields of medicine, including aesthetic medicine. For the first time in medicine, botulinum toxin was used to treat blepharospasm.
What can be corrected with Botulinum toxin therapy?
• Eyebrow wrinkles
• Forehead wrinkles
• Raise eyebrows (Eye-brow-lift)
• Wrinkles around the mouth
• Wrinkles around the eyes (“crow’s feet”)
• Folds on the chin
How does botulinum toxin fight wrinkles?
Expression wrinkles occur due to monotonous movements of facial muscles. When we inject Botulinum Toxin into muscles, we break the connections between nerves and muscle cells. As a result, the muscle relaxes and smoothes out. Accordingly, the skin over this muscle also becomes smooth. Because the effect of botulinum toxin is limited, muscle mobility is usually restored within three to six months.
When should you not use Botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin therapy should not be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Muscle diseases and inflammatory processes in the area where you are going to apply Botulinum toxin are also a contraindication. Botulinum toxin therapy is also not recommended if you are taking blood thinners or certain types of antibiotics.
