What is botulinum toxin and how does it work?

Botulinum toxin is an aesthetic medicine treatment used to temporarily relax facial muscles, reducing or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is ideal for dynamic wrinkles that appear on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.

Benefits of botulinum toxin:

  • Reducing and preventing the formation of new wrinkles
  • Smooth and tightened skin
  • Natural look without a “frozen” facial expression
  • Quick and efficient procedure with no downtime

For which medical purposes can be used?

While botulinum toxin is most commonly associated with its use in aesthetic purposes, this substance is also used for medical purposes.

Some health issues where botulinum toxin has shown excellent results include:

  • Chronic migraines (reduces the frequency of migraine attacks)
  • Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating of the face, hands, armpits, and feet
  • Cervical dystonia – a painful condition involving involuntary muscle spasms in the neck, causing the head to turn or tilt uncontrollably
  • Strabismus (squint)
  • Teeth grinding
  • Blepharospasm – involuntary muscle spasms of the eyelid, causing uncontrollable blinking (eliminates blinking for several months)

Preparation for application

  • Consultation with a specialist: During the consultation, the doctor will discuss your aesthetic goals.
  • Target area determination: The doctor will identify which facial areas to treat based on your goals and specific areas where wrinkles appear.
  • Pre-treatment instructions: You may be advised to avoid alcohol, aspirin, and certain anti-inflammatory medications for a few days before treatment to reduce the risk of bruising.

What to expect during the treatment?

Using a very fine needle, the doctor carefully injects botulinum toxin into specific facial muscles. The number of injections depends on the treated areas and treatment goals.

Duration: The procedure typically takes about 10 to 20 minutes.

After Application

You can immediately resume most of your daily activities. However, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas to prevent spreading botulinum toxin to surrounding areas.

Results of the treatment become visible after a few days, with the full effect typically seen within 1 to 2 weeks. The effects of the treatment can last from 3 to 6 months. After this period, muscle activity gradually returns, and wrinkles may begin to reappear.
