ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENT –
At our centre anti-wrinkle injections treatment perform by our expert doctors.
We use BOTOX®, which is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a purified protein, is widely used in aesthetic medicine to treat lines and wrinkles. At present, only Botulinum toxin type A is the most studied and approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration of USA).
Since 1980, neurotoxic effects of Botulinum toxins have been used for the treatment of various medical disorders (e.g. in children and adults with cerebral paralysis).
There are 7 types of Botulinum toxins produced by different strains of Clostridium Botulinum. Each type has different properties and perform various actions.
Facial ageing results in changes to skin texture, the appearance of dynamic and/or static lines and wrinkles, loss of volume, and skeletal remodelling (bone ageing).
BOTOX® is fast, simple, and minimally invasive with no downtime or recovery.
is used to treat the following conditions:
- Facial dynamic lines/wrinkles
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
- Wrinkles on the jaw line and lips (peri–oral wrinkles)
- Wrinkles and lines on the nose (bunny lines).
- Horizontal lines on the neck (platisma band) – “the Nefertiti neck treatment’
- Hyperhidrosis – Excessive sweating.
HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN A WORK?
Botulinum toxin blocks the action of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter. Acetylcholine stimulates skeletal as well as smooth muscles.
After Botulinum toxin A has been injected, it diffuses into the muscle and blocks the action of acetylcholine and relax the muscles.
Botulinum Toxin A has a cosmetic effect only if injected into particular muscles. Expression lines (e.g. frown lines) may give one tired, cross and/or unhappy look.
Botulinum toxin A treatment relaxes muscles and thus takes away an undesirable facial expression. The appearance of lines and wrinkles is smoother and overall the face looks more rejuvenated. The degree of improvement depends mostly on the initial depth/severity of the lines/wrinkles.
BOUT BOTULINUM TOXIN A TREATMENT
A typical Botulinum toxin A treatment visit usually takes 30 minutes. Initially, the treatment areas are discussed with the doctor, after-which a detailed medical history is taken and an informed consent form is signed.
The client is asked to pull certain facial expressions in order to assess activity and the strength of the muscle. Based on that, the doctor will calculate the individual dose of Botulinum toxin A.
Small amounts of Botulinum toxin A are injected in the localised muscles at several sites using fine sterile needles. The procedure is well tolerated by most patients, however; in order to make it more comfortable a topical anaesthetic cream may be used. The injectable minute amounts of Botulinum toxin A are non-toxic to the body as a whole and have an effect only on the muscles that were treated. Botulinum toxin A injections result in the relaxation of the over-active muscles.
In order to reduce the possible risk of bruising and bleeding, it is advisable to avoid the consumption of alcohol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin for 2 to 3 days prior to Botulinum toxin A treatment.
On you first visit you will need to provide your doctor with a full medical history.
During the first 4 hours after treatment, the patients must not lie down or perform strenuous exercises. The consumption of alcohol and application of make-up must be avoided for the next 12 hours.
It is important not to rub or massage the treated areas for the first 24 hours after injections and to avoid direct exposure to the sun, UV light, freezing temperatures and saunas for the next 2 weeks.
Botulinum toxin A is recommended to both male and female clients. There are no restrictions based on the colour of the skin. As a prevention strategy to forming dynamic wrinkles, the use of Botulinum toxin A may be appropriate in younger individuals (from the early twenties).
Botulinum toxin A is contraindicated in the following conditions:
• Pregnancy and breast feeding
• Known allergy to Botulinum toxin A
• Current infection at the sites of injection
• Some medical conditions, such as Myasthenia Gravis or Eaton Lambert syndrome.
