What is Botox?




Botox is one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments. It is used to treat facial wrinkles, successfully restoring a firmness normally lost over the passage of time. Botox treatment is given by injection, it is a quick and painless procedure so no local anaesthetic is required.

Which wrinkles can be treated with Botox?



Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is used to treat those wrinkles created by facial expression and resulting from muscular contractions of the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

What must we be aware of when undergoing Botox treatment?



Although the treatment does not present any serious risks, it is important that the person administering it is experienced, injections should only be given by a medical specialist. The specialist will decide on the amount to be injected, this being determined by each patient's individual features and requirements.

The specialist must have an exact knowledge of the facial muscles to be able to select the appropriate area for Botox administration and to achieve the best aesthetic results possible.

Results of Botox treatment



The results start to become noticeable after two to three days, although the change is more significant after a week to ten days. Touch up can be performed at about fifteen days following treatment.

The effect of botulinum toxin disappears in about four to five months depending on the patient’s features, for which reason Botox injections are usually recommended a couple of times a year.

With this in mind, combining Botox injections with other anti-ageing treatments is often recommended, with the aim of achieving better, longer lasting results. The specialist will be able to suggest the most individually appropriate treatments for each patient.
