Wrinkles Treatment
with Botulinum toxin injection

Botulinum toxin is a natural purified protein that relaxes muscles and, when properly applied, prevents muscle contraction at the level of the face from being so intense, eliminating the risk of developing wrinkles and grooves, especially in the front area and around the eyes. The formation of wrinkles and folds and grooves is a normal and natural component inherent in the aging process. As we approach the 30/40 years, the fine lines, wrinkles and the thighs that appear to be progressively settling down, especially on the face, our main means of communication. Initially, small changes are more evident with facial expressions and arise when we laugh or frown as they result from the contraction of facial lenses. The differences in muscular kinetics (some people are more expressive than others) translate into greater or lesser precocity in the face of wrinkles.

Over time, the repeated contraction of these muscles under the skin will culminate in the worsening of all these changes, and thus, deep wrinkles, folds and ridges will be installed that will not disappear with the relaxation of the muscles, if permanent.

Botulinum toxin type A, a highly purified protein that is extracted from a bacterium, has the ability to relax facial muscles while preserving the facial mimic, but avoiding exaggerated forces that cause "damage" to the skin surface, protecting the skin from the appearance of wrinkles and furrows.

The application is performed with very thin needles and is practically painless. The local ice is enough to soften some discomfort. It is performed in the query environment.

The results begin to be perceptible between the 3rd and the 7th day, however the effect is maximum at 15 days. At that time it is advisable to do the review and thus evaluate if any retouching is necessary. The duration of the effect ranges from 3 to 6 months depending on the individual characteristics of each patient and their habits.

The decrease in the muscle contraction force due to the treatment has a direct effect on the one hand, the rejuvenation of expression and the reduction of wrinkles, and an indirect effect on the other, the prevention of the aggravation of the treated wrinkles.
