Botox® or Vistabel®, a trading name that provides Botulinum Toxin, is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face (more applicable to expression wrinkles) that result from excessive contraction of muscle groups.
It is a quick procedure, done in just a few minutes, with a small needle to prevent the occurrence of side effects such as edema or hematoma.
The injection of the toxin is given in small amounts in the muscles that inhibit its contraction action, leading to its relaxation, preventing this way the appearance of wrinkles on our skin. Its maintenance and correct application are fundamental for a good result.
The results are natural and consolidated, progressively, over the next 3 to 10 days, requiring a follow-up consultation at the 10th day for evaluation and, if necessary, some repair is done. This toxin causes the muscle to be inactive for about 4 months in the first applications. This duration is due to the rapid formation of neuromuscular junctions by our bodies.
However, this process can be repeated every 4-6 months, and, to the extent that the procedure is repeated, the toxin usually lasts longer.
