Wrinkles in the area of the forehead and the midsection, also known as “expression wrinkles”, and around the eyes (goose legs), throat and mouth can be improved by applying Botox. With Botox we can achieve, in addition to reducing wrinkles, a change in eyebrow shape, where with selective infusions, the eyebrow may look higher and younger.
Botox is based on botulinum toxin type A that causes muscle relaxation and improves the appearance of wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin Type A / Botox has been used in medicine for over thirty years with absolute safety and without the slightest problem. Although it bears the term “toxin” and can often scare patients, it is not at all toxic to humans, it is a fully approved product by the National Medicines Agency and is applied globally in all developed countries with full certification for wrinkle therapy treatments.
It is also an excellent form of treatment for excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) both in the axillary region and in the palms. In some cases, it also seems to treat migraines extremely well, preventing the spasm of the muscles trapping and strangling the sensory nerves that pass through them.
Botox treatment involves the injection of very small amounts of botulinum toxin type A into very specific areas pre-treated prior to treatment and according to the requirements of each patient. The injection is done on the skin with very small and fine needles and local anesthesia is not necessary. In the opinion of Mr. Constantine Benetatos Botox is the most successful of all non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
After treatment, patients are given instructions to practice certain exercises (every five minutes the first hour after injection) to ensure that Botox is fully diffused into the muscles and is maximally effective. It should also be avoided for three days after treatment anything that can increase the temperature in the infused areas (hairdryer, hot shower, gym) as the toxin can be deactivated and its action lasts far less than expected. It takes three to seven days to start the drug running, completes its full action in fifteen days and lasts for four to six months. The duration of Botox may be slightly lower in the first injections and higher in the next. The skin around the infused area may appear slightly red for the first twenty minutes, but then returns to normal. Seldom and especially in the area around the eyes (“goose leg”) in the first few hours after application, it is possible to show small bruises / bruises.
The treatment of Botox expression wrinkles is a routine procedure and crowns with absolute success for the overwhelming majority of patients. However, it is very important to understand that there is, albeit rarely, the possibility of complications. Possible complications that may occur are listed below, most of which will occur only if the Botox is injected into the wrong area.
Mr. Constantinos Benetatos prevents the possibility of this complication, with a very good knowledge of the anatomy of the periocular area and the avoidance of injection of the drug into the area of the upper eyelid, which could paralyze the muscles that lift it. It also avoids the injection of a very large amount of Botox into the forehead area, thus preventing its paralysis and, consequently, the change and drop of the position of the aphids.
Although the same infusion of Botox units will be applied to both sides of the face, however, there is little chance of having a greater effect on one side of the face than on the other.
The appearance of bruises is rare, is usually of small size and escapes in a few days.
It is extremely rare to appear.
