Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin made by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum.
The ability of botulinum toxin to produce muscle paralysis due to chemical denervation is exploited to be used as a medicine in the treatment of certain neurological diseases and as a cosmetic product for the
aesthetic treatment of facial wrinkles, as well as in cases of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) due to its ability to relax the sweat glands.
The areas of highest use for the treatment of facial wrinkles are the frontal region (forehead lines), the glabellar region (glabellar lines), and the periorbital region (“crow’s feet”). With the treatment of these areas, it is possible to return the patient to a more youthful facial appearance.
The dose for each patient varies according to the characteristics and degree of severity of the wrinkles to be treated, with a duration of effect of around 4 to 6 months, with the maximum effect from 15º after application being noted.
After the application, the patient must carefully follow the instructions given by your doctor.
“Finally, remember that your health is also up to you, always follow your doctor’s instructions and avoid activities that compromise you such as smoking, drinking or ingesting any type of hallucinogenic substances.”
