Botulinum toxin is used in aesthetic medicine . Side effects of botulinum toxin are transient because neutrailizada and the toxin is removed.

Botulinum toxin Perhaps for me the application of botulinum toxin (natural protein) in aesthetic medicine and more specifically in the treatment of wrinkles of dynamic expression, has been one of the most important medical advances in this field given that the correction of these wrinkles was very difficult to treat and also with little success.

It is a protein molecule derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that a biological mechanism produces neuromuscular blockade in that muscle which is injected by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter between the nerve and muscle, thus preventing their movement or contraction. This effect is temporary and once neutralized by the body after a period of 3-6 months muscular activity recovers, it does not accumulate in any part of the body and its metabolites they are harmless and eliminated. No serious adverse side effects if applied properly, but in some cases can cause edema of the eyelids eyelid -caída and abnormal position of the eyebrows that are temporary. In rare cases, an allergic reaction has been local, such as redness, itching, redness and swelling of easy treatment. Keep in mind that the side effects are temporary, since the toxin is neutralized and removed.

In medicine it has been used for 30 years in aesthetic medicine and I started using it in 1991, pioneering the use and introduction in Spain.

Today it is the ideal solution for orbiculares forehead wrinkles and frown solution, whose origin is in continuous motion and contraction of the muscles responsible for them. Its application is very upset, it takes little time, about ten minutes and results begin to appear from 48 -72 hours, and its maximum effect after 15 days; and will remain between 3 and 6 months, returning to repeat their infiltration if desired, there is no limit for application. For the best results you need to identify the muscles on assets and decide the right dose. Its effects are very natural and rejuvenating.
