¿? consisting On treatment with botulinum toxin

Treatment with botulinum toxin is a filtration through a fine needle of a substance that relaxes the muscles, which can treat wrinkles of expression, such as the eyebrows and get a more relaxed and natural look. Also we got partly overcome the action of gravity and our face offers a much more relaxed look.


¿From what age or at what point it is advisable to make the treatment ?It is advisable to apply the treatment they begin to appear the first signs of aging or leaving early wrinkles of expression. This would be the ideal time for application, because if we intervene before it wrinkles much mark, it will be easier to treat and also can prevent aging. Consequently, delay the appearance of these wrinkles and even we prevent their appearance by relaxing the muscles.

¿, the application of anesthesia is required ?No need in no time the application of anesthesia as we work with very fine needles and the treatment is virtually painless. Only if the person is extremely sensitive you can use a numbing cream, but this is rare.

¿What results can I expect from treatment ?Get a more relaxed expression, contrarrestaremos negative expressions, such as that of frowning, thus get you a more relaxed, natural look and of course, more youthful. It is also very important to consider the issue of prevention: can prevent the appearance of those unsightly wrinkles if we begin to treat them when they appear for the first time


¿What side effects can lead to treatment ?It is a treatment that in good hands has very few side effects, however, any side effects that may occur is reversible, since the effects of botulinum toxin are reversible in time. The most common side effect is a slight headache the day of application but can be treated with any analgesic. Even so this effect is rather uncommon.

¿How long does the treatment effect ?We distinguish two aspects: the effect of muscle relaxation, which lasts about four months and the reappearance of wrinkles, it takes more time because the muscle needs to recover after losing the relaxation. Thus we can consider that a good result lasts approximately six months. If we get those wrinkles do not come out again, the same treatment must be repeated each semester.
