Botulinum toxin (popularly known as Botox) is a widely used method in aesthetic dermatology for smoothing the facial wrinkles as a result of blocking the underlying muscles.

The wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows (angry wrinkles) and those around the eyes (fullness under the eyes) are best affected by the toxin.

How the botulinum toxin works?

It slows down or blocks the transmission of nerve impulse from the nerve endings to the muscle, reducing its activity. This leads to the smoothing of the mimic wrinkles in the treated area.

When does the effect occur after the treatment?

Botulinum toxin (botox) begins to work 2-3 days after injection. Typically, the maximum effect occurs on the 14th day.

How long does the effect last?

The effect lasts between 3-6 months, depending on the depth of wrinkles, the amount injected and the intensity of the patient’s mimics.

Which patients are suitED for this treatment?

Botulinum toxin injections are suitable for people who have increased facial muscle activity or multiple wrinkles as a result of frequent and active mimics.

How often can botox be Applied?

The interval between treatments is recommended to be at least 3-4 months. Observing these intervals is a guarantee for greater efficiency and durability of applications over the years. 

What to do after the treatment?

– avoid lying down for about 4 hours after the treatment.
– do not massage the treated areas on the day of the treatment
– do not apply makeup for 4-6 hours
– avoid active sports on the day of the treatment
– do not expose the treated area to sauna, steam bath, solarium, sunbathing for 3-4 days
