Botulinum Toxin Injection (Botox)
Botulinum toxin causes the inhibition of acetylcholine production responsible for the transmission of signals between neurons. Thanks to the injection of botulinum toxin, a completely safe and reversible process of loss of muscle strength in the movement plate occurs – the nerve endings do not send the neurotransmitter, while the muscles stop over-contracting.
Botox erasing allows you to get optimal results when treating different types of wrinkles, i.e. crow’s feet, lion’s wrinkles, transverse forehead wrinkles, smoker’s wrinkles, rabbit wrinkles or wrinkles under the eyes. Because the use of botulinum toxin injection allows you to reduce excessive muscle tone, that’s why it helps to successfully treats chronic migraines.
Botox works great in the case of jaws associated with excessive masseter muscle work. Due to the fact that botulinum toxin therapy limits the work of sweat glands, it is ideal for fighting the problem of hyperhidrosis in the armpits, hands and feet.
Botulinum toxin, also called Botox, is produced by the Clostridium botulinum gram-positive rod. The bacterium can cause very strong food poisoning. However, after cleansing and administration at the right dose, it can work wonders. For many years, it has been used in aesthetic medicine offices as a reliable way to fill wrinkles. But not only, it also brings relief to those who struggle with excessive sweating.
Botox is based on the permanent combination of this substance with the neuromuscular plaque. This is done by fragmenting the SNAP-25 protein necessary for the secretion of acetylcholine from presynaptic terminals. As a consequence, motor plate paralysis and muscle contractility are abolished.
- elimination of mimic wrinkles
- face modelling
- migraine, bruxism, hyperhidrosis treatment
The procedure is performed by a specialist in aesthetic medicine after determining the indication for the procedure and excluding contraindications during medical consultation. It consists in administering the amount of botulinum toxin appropriate for therapeutic needs – directly to the muscles located under the skin. Although the procedure does not require local anaesthesia, of course, due to the patient’s comfort, cream anaesthesia is sometimes used about 1 hour before the procedure.
The pain associated with the injection is minimal – many patients compare it to a mosquito bite lasting a few seconds.
The procedure lasts from 15 to 30 minutes.
The treatment does not require a recovery period. Immediately after the procedure local swelling may occur, which usually disappears after 4 hours.
About 4-12 months.
Neuromuscular conduction disorders (myasthenia gravis, Lambert Eaton syndrome),
