ALL ABOUT ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS WITH BOTOX

WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

Anti-wrinkle injections with Botox are one of the most common facial cosmetic treatments. They are perfect to remove fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines.

It is a quick and non-invasive treatment to produce a fresh look, more youthful and natural.
Normally, patients who undergo treatment based on Botox injections are over 30 years old.

By injecting the botulinum toxin into the wrinkle, the muscles in the area temporarily relax and the wrinkle disappears or attenuates. This restores the face naturalness and youth and allows you to correct the signs of aging without the need of undergoing surgery.

Anti-wrinkle injections can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as facial fillers, skinboosters, laser or dermaroller.

However, all cosmetic treatments require the intervention of an experienced and highly trained professional. You have to be advised wisely in order to avoid these frozen and expressionless faces lacking of naturalness.

WHY GOING TO A SPECIALISED MEDICAL CENTRE?

treatment based on anti-wrinkle injections requires a previous diagnosis.

Plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic specialists are the only medical professionals authorised to apply botulinum toxin.

The risks of not going to a specialised medical centre to carry out the treatment are highly dangerous. Botox injections can cause serious health damages and have unpleasant side effects if it is not applied correctly.

Likewise, an indiscriminate and measureless use of this toxin can result in an unnatural and expressionless face.

It’s essential to remove wrinkles while preserving natural expressiveness. Each patient requires a personalised treatment. The goal is to make the wrinkle disappear without changing the personality of the face.

To achieve this, each face and gesturing must be analysed, as well as the facial muscle movement that cause the wrinkle.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE BEFORE THE TREATMENT?

Anticoagulant medications have a direct effect on the penetration of botulinum toxin into the tissues. This is the reason why if you take this type of medicine, you should ask your doctor if you can interrupt the treatment for a few days.

The use of antiplatelet agents or the intake of alcohol is also not recommended. It is recommended not to take nutritional supplements that affect coagulation such as vitamin E or garlic. These precautions will prevent bruising.

HOW ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS PERFORMED?

The treatment is carried out by infiltrating small amounts of botulinum toxin in certain muscles and areas. Infiltration is done with virtually painless microinjections.

The advantages of this treatment are:

– Treatment is performed in the consultation, on an outpatient basis.

– It lasts a few minutes and it is applied in one session.

– The use of local anaesthesia is not necessary (although it can be applied if the patient wants it)

– The pain produced by the pricks is very slight.

– After the session, the patient can immediately return to his usual activities.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE AFTER THE INJECTIONS?

After an anti-wrinkle injections treatment, you can continue with your normal life. However, you should not:

  • Apply makeup in order to reduce the risk of infection at the injection sites.
  • Massage the treated area in the next 24 hours.
  • Go to saunas or swimming pools.
  • Consume large amounts of alcohol.
  • Lie down in the hours following the treatment.
  • Perform any type of physical activity, especially with movements that involve moving the head downwards (such as yoga)
  • Wash your hair with your head down in the hours following the treatment.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF FACIAL INJECTIONS?

Anti-wrinkle injections should not cause any side effects, as long as they are administered by a qualified professional. The  appropriate dose has to be applied.

They may temporarily cause short-term pain, swelling, bruising, or hyperesthesia (abnormal increase in tactile sensitivity).

In some cases, patients may have mild headaches. In the treatment of crow’s feet, a small retention of liquid in the lower eyelid can occur in those who have marked bags. It is a temporary effect that can be avoided by limiting the application of the product in that area.

WHAT OTHER MEDICAL BENEFITS DOES BOTOX INJECTIONS HAVE?

Botox is also used for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating. Its application manages to stop sweat production within a few days. Its effect is temporary, approximately six months.

In addition, the botulinum toxin has also been used to combat other disorders such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), back pain, overactive bladder and lazy eye.

HOW LONG DOES ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST?

The effect of the injection begins to appear after three or four days. Its effect is complete between the next seven and ten days, at that time the patient will notice the results.

The effects are not permanent and tend to lessen after three or four months. They normally disappear after five or six months. Thereafter, the treatment can be repeated, after medical evaluation.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BOTOX AND HYALURONIC ACID?

Botox and hyaluronic acid contain similar substances and rejuvenating effects, but there are some important differences between both injectable treatments.

Botox paralyzes the muscles and prevents wrinkles produced by their movements. Whereas hyaluronic acid can be used as a dermal filler. This naturally occurring product is injected into the skin in order to fill certain areas of the face. It is also used to treat the periorbital area (crow’s feet).

Hyaluronic acid is injected superficially into the skin, providing volume and hydration without altering the physical characteristics of the treated area.
