How it Works
Botulinum toxin, universally known as Botox (Vistabel, Azzalure, Bocouture), is a protein complex of biologic origin, that is injected in very small doses. It acts through the blockage of releasing some neurotransmitter that will prevent the muscle to act as the brain ordered.
Fine lines are smoothed. The final result appears after a week and the expression lines remain practically invisible. The effect lasts about 6 to 12 months. This time lapse depends from person to person, as it depends on the muscle strength of each one. After that time, you may apply some touch-ups or apply new doses.
This treatment is quite simple, practical, non-invasive and non-addictive! The only dependency is the patient to start liking to look nicer, better looking and light!
When properly applied the patient can carry on with the daily routine and even go straight to a party or meeting after the procedure. With the right techniques you can barely notice anything, and whenever necessary, you can add an extra touch with your makeup.
The patient cannot exercise on the day of the treatment, as well as shall avoid saunas and Turkish baths or any source of heat. Despite some women being afraid to make this treatment during hot season, they should not. In fact, two days after the procedure the patient can go to the beach!
Another commonly use is the medical Botox. For a better understanding of this type of treatment, lets read an example: Botox can be applied to palms of the hands, feet and armpits to drastically decrease excessive perspiration in these body parts. More and more people are undergoing these treatments to avoid socially embarrassing situations. There are many people who avoid certain types of clothes, sandals and even socializing, as they feel quite bad because of perspiration.
Don’t be afraid, we have the solution to your problem. The results of this treatment are immediate, without surgical intervention and it is done in the blink of an eye!
- Pay extra attention during the 5 first days after the procedure, as it may occur small ecchymosis (bruises) and swelling;
- Inform your doctor of any type of allergies;
- Botox will have results on the applied area, unless rare exceptions (which will last shortly);
- Avoid this treatment during fertile and breastfeeding times.
