The appearance of neurotoxins ( botulinum toxin ) for cosmetic use has revolutionized the treatment of facial wrinkles and expression lines. Neurotoxins work by temporarily interrupting communication between neurons and muscle, relaxing overactive facial muscles that cause wrinkles between the two eyes (between the eyebrows), around them (crow’s feet) or on the forehead. Contrary to some stereotypes, botulinum toxin  (Botox ™) does not leave your expression frozen, and you will still have the ability to express a wide range of emotions, frown, smile or look in surprise. Where there will be no surprise is when it comes to seeing the results: free of some of the wrinkles and furrows that make you look older than you really are.

The treatment with botulinum toxin lasts only about ten minutes, with a series of small injections located at strategic points and that do not generate great discomfort. The results are not immediate but in a few days you will appreciate more softness in the treated areas. The effect will last around four months.

The use of botulinum toxin is becoming the biggest beauty secret of many women. In a brief visit to our practice, the dynamic wrinkles around your eyes, your forehead or your eyebrows will be reduced and in just a few days your look will have a younger and brighter appearance that will last a few months.

Some patients may experience some inflammation or even the appearance of a purple after the infiltration, but most of them consider the side effects non-existent. You will return to your daily activity the same day of the treatment.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients notice some feeling of discomfort during treatment with botulinum toxin , it should not be forgotten that these are microinjections in areas of the forehead and crow’s feet that last a few minutes. In extremely sensitive patients, anesthetic creams can be applied a few minutes before starting treatment. Once the procedure is finished, any type of discomfort is quite infrequent.

How long does the result last?

The duration of the result will depend on the dose of botulinum toxin used, the areas and muscles treated and the number of toxin treatments that the patient has carried out. There are clinical studies that ensure that the number of treatments increases its duration. In most patients the duration of the result is between 4 and 6 months. To achieve permanent results there is the possibility of weakening the muscles by performing a frontal lift.

Dermal Fillers

Many people choose to use dermal fillers to hide wrinkles on the lips, increase their volume or restore volume in specific areas of the face. Dermal fillers or infiltrations have progressed beyond correcting wrinkles, towards an approach that volumizes and restructures. This approach allows us professionals to develop personalized aesthetic treatment plans according to the individual needs of our patients and designed to obtain a natural appearance.

These dermal fillers treatments can be used alone or in combination with others such as botulinum toxin for a more youthful appearance.

There are different types of fillers that can be used for non-surgical rejuvenation.
