How does the application work?
As the application is performed with the thinnest needle, botulinum toxin therapy is one of the least painful procedures in aesthetic medicine. The exercise lasts approximately 15 minutes.
After injecting directly into a specific muscle, it causes muscle relaxation by blocking the transmission of a nerve signal to the muscle, thus preventing skin shrinkage, which causes wrinkles and fine lines.
Duration of botulinum toxin
The maximum onset of action may take 7-10 days after application until the treated area relaxes.
The effect lasts from 4 to 6 months, but because the muscle is relaxed and we practically do not use it, the bad habit of using a particular muscle is unlearned.
It can be said that the application of botulinum toxin is suitable at EVERY AGE, today it is preferred to apply it to younger patients, when we can prevent deep wrinkles.
After botulinum toxin application:
– do not lean forward
– do not touch treated areas
– Exercise the muscles of the treated areas
For 2 days after the procedure
– Do not exercise/work out
– do not massage
– do not sauna
– Avoid intense sunlight, solarium
