WHAT is botox?

Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. All over the world it is vert strict who can do this medical treatment and where it can be done. As this is a popular and fast growing treatment, everybody speaks of it, not so many knows what It’s for.

How does botox work?

Botox is mostly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles. People also use Botox to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and leaky bladder. However some people still think botox can be used to create bigger lips, but it’s very important to not do mix the Botox treatment with anything else. For the same reason  it’s also very important to know the diplomas of the doctor and the licence of the Clinic where you get botox treatment. In Spain it’s only doctors that are allowed to inject Botox, not nurses, or beauticians and the clinic has to be approved for this not in a beauty salon- as this is ilegal and dangerous . An incorrect dose or injecting the wrong muscle, can cause very serious damages.

How is the procedure of botox performed?

Botox is injected it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 3-5 days to make effect. We work with 3 zones; forehead, between the eyes and the “smiling wrinkles “. Our patients come for Botox 2-3 times a year, as the Botox prevents the skin turning lines into deep wrinkles.

Risks and side effects

Injections with botulinum toxin are generally well tolerated and there are few side effects. In rare cases, an individual may have a genetic predisposition that results in a mild, transient unusual response to Botox. After the first time injecting Botox, some patients can have local reddening of the skin at the injection site, and numbness the first few hours.
