What areas can be treated with botox?

In aesthetic medicine, botox is undoubtedly one of the star treatments. In fact, "botox" is a trademark, but all patients know the treatment by this name, and nobody asks for a botulinum toxin procedure. This toxin is indicated to attenuate wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and crow's feet. However, it also allows us to slightly modify the position of the eyebrows, slightly raising its position, providing luminosity and making the look more attractive.

In turn, another of the applications of botox is the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperdrosis) in the palms of the hands, in the feet or in the armpits, leaving excellent results.

What is botox treatment? What are its effects?

Botox treatment is a quick treatment, since the patient does not last more than twenty minutes in the consultation. It is a simple and practically painless treatment, in which the use of anesthesia is not required.

The effects of botox treatment are visible around two or three days after undergoing the procedure, and its durability varies between four and six months, so it is recommended to undergo treatment about twice a year.

It is recommended to start this treatment at younger and younger ages, since botox includes a preventive effect, which means that you have to use less quantity of product and prolong its effects for a longer time.

However, what should be clear is that the treatment has to be carried out by qualified Aesthetic Medicine specialists who use a good quality product, which will save unexpected setbacks.
