It is the No. 1 non-invasive cosmetic treatment worldwide. Botulinum toxin promises radiant youthful skin without signs of expression in just one session painlessly and effectively.
WHAT IS Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum toxin is the most effective treatment for dynamic facial wrinkles, that is, wrinkles created by ordinary expressions such as laughter, surprise, frowning, anger, and others.
Botulinum toxin works right at the root of the problem, as it has the ability to block the movement of muscles (dermal or mimic muscles) and therefore prevent the appearance of wrinkles in the overlying skin. It is an injectable treatment based on the injection of a special neurotoxin, the so-called botulinum toxin type A or botulinum toxin, which when applied by an experienced plastic surgeon in the indicated dosage, is absolutely safe for the body. Although the result is spectacular, it does not radically change the appearance of your face. The muscles simply relax, so you can still change facial expressions without your skin ‘creasing’!

STEP BY STEP APPLICATION PROCEDURE
Talk to your doctor about your wishes. After assessing the condition and type of your skin, your age and expectations, the doctor formulates a personalized treatment plan to provide you with the desired result.
The doctor asks you to make certain expressions (smile, surprise, anger, frown) and marks on the skin of your face with a special pencil the places where the injections will be made. At this stage, the botulinum toxin units (units) that will be needed for an excellent result are determined.
Within 5-10 minutes, the doctor completes the microinjections at the predetermined points with a special technique that makes the application painless. However, if you wish, you can request that a cold compress or anesthetic cream be applied locally to numb the area.
The doctor records in your file the treatment plan (facial zones) and the number of botox units used per area. You reschedule an appointment after about 15-20 days, when the full effect of the treatment will now be visible, in order to assess whether certain points need reinforcement (retouch).
In the last week before the application, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages.
One week in advance, it is recommended to stop taking blood-thinning medications or dietary supplements, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, anticoagulants, vitamin E, Omega-3 fatty acids, gingko biloba and ginseng, in order to avoid bruising at the injection sites after the procedure.
You can apply your makeup normally immediately after the treatment.
It is recommended to avoid vigorous physical exercise and heavy manual work for 2-3 days, so as not to increase the heart rate and blood flow, where it prevents the injured blood vessels at the injection sites from healing quickly.
If you experience bruising at the injection sites, you can treat them with topical application of arnica-based cream.
Avoid touching or touching the treatment area for at least 6 hours after application. Any massage or pressure in the area is contraindicated.
Avoid sleeping for at least the next 3-4 hours after the treatment, so as not to unconsciously rub or press the application area. The first night after application, prefer to sleep with your head elevated using extra pillows.
To soothe any swelling in the area, you can gently apply a cold compress for 5-10 minutes every hour.
