Wrinkle Correction with Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum toxin was originally developed for the treatment of certain neurological conditions – spasmodic, cerebral palsy, since it helps to relax the muscles. Later it was noticed that botulinum toxin is suitable to reduce the facial tone or even block the activity of sudoriferous glands.
So, when solving the problem of ageing, the botulinum toxin is usually used for correction of forehead wrinkles and wrinkles around the eyes.
The duration of the botulinum toxin effect depends on the corrected area, dose, strength of muscles and patient’s organism.
The botuline makes the muscle less mobile in a certain area, the skin wrinkles less, current deep wrinkles smooth out and no new wrinkles appear for a certain period of time. The injections must be regularly repeated in order to maintain the obtained effect.
