otulinum toxin, colloquially BOTOX, is a substance capable of releasing muscle contractions. It is used to reduce and prevent the activity of mimic and subsequent smoothing. Botulinum toxin is mainly used to eliminate the "wrinkle of anger" (glabellas), horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, follicles at the corners of the eye.

Course of treatment
The procedure proceeds relatively quickly, with several punctures – depending on the location and type of wrinkles. Pain is limited to the sensation of gentle puncture. After application it is recommended to make intensive use of facial expressions of the treated area, to stay in an upright position for 3-4 hours, not to lie down on your back or abdomen, and not to bend over. Slight redness or bruising after the puncture recedes within 48 hours to 7 days.
Information about treatment
The onset of action and its duration are individual. It depends on the intensity of the mimic muscle contraction, the rate of degradation of the active substance and the rate of regeneration of the nerve endings in the muscle. The effect is seen in many as early as 48 hours, is fully developed after 14-21 days and lasts an average of 3-6 months. By continuously regenerating the treated area, the use of botulinum toxin for wrinkle correction is a very safe medical-cosmetic procedure. Possible eyelid drop (ptosis), double vision (diplopia) and eye dryness are corrected within 2-4 weeks. Bruising and swelling are short-lived; the sensation of burning and pain from the injection is individual.
Correction of wrinkles by botulinum toxin is a very effective and reliable method with minimal risk of side effects. It can always be repeated as needed and can be combined with all other wrinkle removal methods.
Who is the procedure suitable for
Botulinum toxin is suitable for both women and men aged 18 to 65 years. It is not suitable in pregnancy or for nursing mothers.
