Is the anti-aging treatment by Botox™ safe?
The anti-wrinkle treatment is made of a medicinal molecule called botulinum toxin. The therapeutic use or aesthetic medicine use has been approved for more than 20 years, with no known adverse effect. Like any medical procedure in aesthetic medicine, undesirable and rare effects can occur. The most common are small bruises, glabellar heaviness that are completely transitory, slight asymmetry of facial expressions are easily corrected and in very rare cases, in the order of 1%, lowering of the eyebrow or the upper eyelid can occur and that fade naturally after 3 months.
To reduce the risk, it is imperative to be treated by well-trained doctors and especially connoisseurs of the facial muscles and their dynamics.
HOW DOES BOTOX™ ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENT WORK?
The different facial expressions are produced by the contraction movement of your muscles; So, you pucker, you raise your eyebrows, you squint your eyes, you pull the corners of your mouth down.
In some these muscles are very active, with powerful expressions, in others with the passage of time these small muscles become too strong and begin to contract continuously, marking the skin , lines and wrinkles appears. Also, to relieve heavy eyelids that thickens and close the eye, the muscle contraction helps to have more precision when looking.
The muscular action of contraction marks the skin giving as a result expression lines and wrinkles, over time these expression lines can eventually become permanent wrinkles.
Our brain sends messages to the muscles so that they contract through nerves. Botox™ anti-wrinkle treatment interrupts this message in a transient way. Thus, muscle fibres targeted will not mark the skin, softening the expression of the face. Other muscular fibres will work to raise the eyebrow or will fade to raise the corner of the mouth or raise the tip of the nose.
