Botulinum therapy is used to prevent wrinkles in areas of active facial expression. The drug is injected into muscle tissue and temporarily reduces their mobility, due to which wrinkles disappear and the same effect of perfectly smooth skin appears. The result can be assessed after 2 weeks, and it will last from three to six months. The duration of action of Botox will depend on lifestyle and individual characteristics of the body.
Botulinum therapy can easily be called the most popular anti-age procedure. However, there are many myths about this technique. For example, Botox does not always cause a “mask” effect on the face. This side effect occurs if the dosage was chosen incorrectly or if low-quality botulinum toxin was used. At the Silk Medical clinic we use only certified drugs, and all procedures are performed by doctors with many years of experience in the field of cosmetology.
Botox is an effective way to prevent various types of facial wrinkles:
- wrinkles in the outer corners of the eyes;
- wrinkles in the form of a cluster of small vertical folds above the lips;
- horizontal wrinkles, which often form in the forehead;
- between the eyebrows.
Botulinum therapy also helps to correct facial features and get rid of some other problems:
- unevenness on the chin (which appears when moving);
- visually lift the drooping corners of the lips by working with the muscles in the mouth area;
- normalize the functioning of the sebaceous glands in the armpit area and reduce sweating.
Like any other drug, botulinum toxin has its contraindications: pregnancy, breastfeeding, infections, individual intolerance to neurotoxin type A and other components of the drug, chronic diseases in the acute stage, oncology, and disorders of the neuromuscular system. To make the procedure comfortable and effective, it is recommended to stop smoking and drinking alcohol the day before, and not to visit the bathhouse, sauna or solarium. After botulinum toxin injections, these restrictions remain for a couple of days. At your appointment, cosmetologists at the SILK Medical Clinic in Tbilisi will once again introduce you to a complete list of recommendations that will help you maintain the results for a long time.
