Botulinum toxin

Facial treatment with botulinum toxin (botox).

The botulinum toxin, known as Botox, is a comfortable, very effective and safe treatment, authorized by the Spanish Agency of Medicine (AEMPS) to improve aesthetic appearance by eliminating wrinkles and furrows that appear in some areas of the face such as forehead, eye contour "crow's feet" and between the eyebrows, due to a repetitive gesticulation of our facial muscles. The botulinum toxin used for this treatment is type A, for which it is very important to ensure that it comes from officially approved and marketed brands in Spain.

Botox seeks to reduce the predisposition of the muscles to contract in the treated areas, providing in general an attenuation of wrinkles throughout the periodic performance of treatment.

METHOD

The treatment consists of the application of the liquid by means of a small puncture with a very fine needle thanks to which an infiltration is obtained through the skin and in the precise muscle, achieving that this relaxes by blocking its electrical impulse.

DURATION

After its application, the muscles gradually stop contracting after 72 hours, reaching a maximum effect after 15 days, maintaining its effect for a period of between 4 and 6 months. The effects of the treatment are therefore reversible since it reaches a maximum duration of approximately six months, so the treatment can be repeated every four, five or six months, depending on the patient's needs.

DISCOMFORT

The application of Botox is virtually painless, although the patient may feel minimal discomfort such as a stinging sensation.

Pre-treatment recommendations:

  • Do not take analgesics or aspirin, preferably one week before the treatment.

Post-treatment recommendations:

  • Patients can resume their normal work and life.
  • Four hours after application, pressure should be avoided in the treated areas, even during sleeping hours, in order to avoid spreading the product to undesirable areas.
EFECTOS SECUNDARIOS

Although infrequent and very rare, temporary and totally reversible alterations may occur:

  • Headache, tingling and small bruises in the injection area;
  • Mild, transient ptosis (descent) of the upper eyelid (for 2-3 weeks) may occur in a small percentage of those treated;
  • Minimal risk of allergy.

More uses for botulinum toxin.

Botox is also the treatment of choice in hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in armpits, palms and soles of the feet, as it acts on the sweat glands, and with repeated application tends to be increasingly durable. The treatment a little before the summer allows many patients to live better all year round.

Contraindications

Botulinum toxin should not be used in:

  • Pregnant women.
  • Patients with neuromuscular diseases.
  • Areas with infection.
