Botox is a purified protein produced from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It works in a way that, by binding to specific receptors, it prevents the transmission of nerve impulses from the nerve to the muscle cell, thereby preventing muscle contraction (contraction, spasm, muscle movement). Due to this feature, aesthetic medicine removes dynamic wrinkles, i.e., wrinkles that appear due to the contraction of specific face and neck muscles. These are horizontal wrinkles on the forehead (frontal), horizontal and vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), fine wrinkles around the outer corners of the eyes (crow's feet) and other face and neck wrinkles. The treatment lasts about 15 minutes. A local anesthetic is applied, but due to the use of extremely thin needles that cause minimal pain, it can also be done without anesthesia. After the treatment, redness and swelling may occur at the injection site, as well as headache and nausea, and last from a few hours to two days. Hematoma (bruising) at the application site may also appear. In some cases, very rarely, there may be weakness of the surrounding muscles and drooping of the eyebrows, which is also temporary.
The initial effect is noticed after 2-3 days, and the full effect is achieved in 7-10 days. The results last about six months, and with the repetition of the treatment, they are prolonged, as the mimic activity is less and less restored. Treatments can be safely stopped at any time, after which the wrinkles gradually return to their original state.
Contraindications (when not to do it):
- pregnancy and breastfeeding period
- allergy to the preparation components (albumins)
- blood coagulation diseases
- neuromuscular diseases (myasthenia gravis)
Non-surgical face and body treatments
Hyaluronic acid provides support for collagen and elastic fibers as well as other skin structures, giving it the necessary firmness and elasticity.
Over the years, the lip volume decreases, the contours fade, and noticeable, finely etched wrinkles appear around the lips. We make the lips fresh and juicy again and visibly rejuvenate them.
Biorevitalization is a method of skin revitalization and rejuvenation by which hyaluronic acid, amino acids and vitamins are injected directly into the skin. This way, deep skin hydration is achieved, tone and elasticity are restored, and the skin acquires a healthy glow.
