Objectives of Botox®

Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox®, is an injection product that reduces wrinkles and fine lines at rest, without preventing muscle contraction: results are therefore judged primarily on the appearance of wrinkles at rest.

The face looks more relaxed. The effect is not permanent, and there is no danger to the body.

The aim of botulinum toxin injection treatment is not to freeze the face, as is sometimes said, but to rest it and rejuvenate your look. You’ll retain a natural facial expression, while reducing the excess tone of facial muscles responsible for expression lines.

Botulinum toxin can also block the action of the sweat glands responsible for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). In this indication, it is possible to treat the armpits, hands or feet, depending on the areas concerned.

Who is Botox for?

The appearance of is almost inevitable. In all individuals, facial expressions contribute to their formation.

Depending on the thickness of the skin, wrinkles may appear at varying ages. For some, they are visible as early as age 25.

Botulinum toxin injections are therefore aimed at all patients wishing to reduce expression lines and specifically attenuate certain facial movements that lead to aging.

Injections can also be considered for preventive rather than corrective purposes.

An initial consultation with your specialist is essential to find out if this treatment is suitable for your particular situation.

Explanations

What areas of the face can be treated with Botox®?

Botox can be used on different areas of the face to restore youth and balance.

  • Glabella and forehead: used to reduce frown lines and forehead wrinkles caused by raised eyebrows.
  • Crow’s feet: Botox® is injected into the muscles at the side of the eye to blur muscle contraction for a rested, refreshed look.
  • The nose: horizontal wrinkles at the root of the nose can be reduced by injecting Botox®.
  • Around the mouth : Botox helps straighten the sagging at the corners of the mouth by weakening the muscle that pulls them down.
  • On the lips : fine lines on the lips can be reduced, as well as the “gummy smile” (when the upper gumline is very visible when smiling).
  • On the chin : Botox® is very effective in reducing wrinkles on the chin.
  • Neck: the appearance of the neck can be rejuvenated by reducing the muscular contractions responsible for the “string” wrinkles that form under the chin (platysmal cords, dewlaps).

Details of a Botox® session

A Botox® injection session is very quick. In most indications, 15 minutes are sufficient.

A personalized diagnosis is made at the first appointment, and a treatment plan is proposed.

The treatment starts with a disinfection of the treatment area.

Botulinum toxin is injected using very fine needles, guaranteeing greater precision and a virtually painless procedure for the patient. An excellent knowledge of anatomy is essential to inject the toxin in a targeted manner and to obtain the desired effect.

The patient can return home right after the session.

Aftermath

The patient can immediately resume his activities. Hematomas or redness, if present, remain temporary.

During the two hours following the injections, it is recommended that you do not lie down and avoid intensive sports.

Facial manipulation or massage should also be avoided for 24 hours after the session.

Any extreme hot environment like sauna or hammam should be avoided during the first 48 hours, as well as sun exposure.

Results

Usually, the effects of the treatment are visible within 72 hours . The final result takes between 7 and 14 days.

The treatment lasts between 4 and 6 months . Two injections a year are then suggested to maintain the beauty of the results, and you should also wait at least 3 months between each Botox® session to avoid the production of antibodies by the body.

Botulinum toxin treatment must be considered and managed over time: it is therefore recommended to treat gradually to avoid the risk of a fixed face during the first session.

Sometimes it is better tokeep it moderate at first, even if it means adding more product later on. It may take several sessions to achieve the desired result.

There are no side effects or contraindications apart from pregnancy, breastfeeding and certain autoimmune diseases. Adverse effects such as eyelid ptosis or raised eyebrows can be corrected with a touch-up injection.

A follow-up consultation is always scheduled after 15 days to evaluate the result and complete the treatment if necessary. This follow up appointment as well as possible supplements are included in the initial treatment fee.

The purpose of these injections is to bring about an improvement and not to achieve perfection. If your expectations remain realistic, the obtained result should give you utmost satisfaction.

Botox injections can also be combined with the placement of resorbable tensor threads to treat a sagging skin while stimulating the natural production of collagen to obtain an immediate lifting effect on the entire face.
