Modern cosmetology tries to do everything, so the skin is kept young and healthy for as long as possible. Especially attention is devoted to the fight against mimic wrinkles. One of the most effective tools in this area is the well-known Botox obtained by the method of purification of botulinum toxin (botanicheskii neurotoxin).
Botulinum toxin is a very strong natural poison, however, in low concentrations, it is harmless. Doctors use Botox not only in cosmetics, but also for the treatment of various diseases associated with suppression of muscle activity. Principle of drug action is based on blocking nerve impulses in the muscle, resulting in muscle is not reduced. In cosmetic Botox injections are actively used to inhibit the activity of facial muscles. Frequent muscle contraction gradually lead to the appearance of wrinkles and their subsequent development. Without cutting the muscles are relaxed and smoothed out.
Indications and contraindications
Botulinum toxin helps to fight wrinkles on the neck, forehead and "crow's feet (wrinkles around the eyes). Experts recommend the use of Botox injections after 35 years since the passage of this age limit, the skin loses the ability to regenerate, the number of produced collagen is reduced and wrinkles begin to appear stronger. Without any cosmetic procedures to get rid of them is difficult.
There are some limitations of Botox, for example, prohibit the introduction of Botox in the following cases:
• When hemophilia and thrombophilia,
• During pregnancy and lactation,
• When there is inflammation or rash at the site of injection.
For the skin around the mouth and chin Botox injection can lead to undesirable consequences, so do injections in these areas will not recommend any one a good specialist.
The result and the duration of effect
Instant result from injection should not wait: it will be released approximately one week. After this time unwanted wrinkles smoothed. Since the introduction of the drug in well-defined areas, the facial expressions are not violated.
After the procedure, the skin begins to rapidly eliminate the poison from the body. Gradually, the activity is blocked muscles will recover and wrinkles will reappear. The effect of Botox will stop after about 6 months, then you will need a second procedure.
You should not be disappointed in such a short-term result. Experts say that the effect of subsequent treatments will last longer. So, after the second injection times it will last for about 8-10 months.
