What is Botox

Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox by its commercial name, is a toxin that produces botulism. This protein has the ability to produce muscle paralysis, so it is used in the treatment of wrinkles.

How Botox is applied

It is usually applied to the face, just in the muscle of the area that shows signs of wrinkles. This is done by means of an extra fine needle with which the botulinum toxin type A is infiltrated. In doing so, it inhibits the movement of the muscle, for example, between the eyebrows, but at the same time produces a relaxation.

Botox is applied with great results in the forehead area, as well as in the eye contour. It can also be applied to the corners of the lips and other areas where wrinkles are to be avoided. Of course, this treatment must be applied by highly qualified personnel. Otherwise, there is a risk that a wrong application of Botox will produce an unflattering result.

On the other hand, it is important to apply, according to the law, one vial per patient, avoiding sharing. If less than the indicated amount is applied, its duration and effectiveness will be shortened. It is necessary to have a subsequent revision by the same professional who applied the Botox. It may even be necessary to have a touch-up a week or two weeks after the treatment.

The duration of the treatment can vary in each person, if it is a man or a woman, their facial expressions, skin type, etc. Although on average it lasts between 3 and 6 or 8 months, so it is necessary to repeat the treatment when indicated.
