Botulinum toxin is a toxin, a protein produced by a bacterium, that blocks the release of the substance that causes a nerve stimulus in a certain area 2-1 cm in diameter around the injection site. The muscle that does not receive the stimulus stops moving and contracts. After a period of 6-4 months it dissipates The effect of botulinum toxin and muscle returns to work as before.
Botox vs. Dysport
There are 2 main types of botulinum toxin dents
Bockots by Allergan and Dysport by ami Technologies
The difference between them is mainly in the dispersal ability of the substance when Botox adheres to the injection area and Dysport disperses beyond the injection area
Each case is treated with a substance that suits it
What areas of the face are treated with Botox?
Botox is especially effective in improving the appearance of wrinkles on the sides of the eyes, forehead and the area between the eyebrows. Botox gives a younger look and reduces / raises the above wrinkles
Botox can also be used to reduce sweating on the forehead and palms and to reduce a smile that exposes too many teeth) (gummy smile)
How long will it take to see results?
You start to see results after about 5 days, but the final result can only be seen after two weeks
How often should the operation be repeated?
Botox treatment is temporary and lasts until a period of six months (between 3-6 months) after which the wrinkles will return and then a re-treatment must be performed to reduce them. Repetitive treatments prolong the time required between treatments, as these muscles partially degenerate under the repeated treatments.
In men the muscles are stronger, as well as in people who do sports, because of the increased metabolism and the more extensive use of muscles, so the effect in them is usually shorter.
