Do you want to know more about Botox? Dra. Doménica Toledo tells you

"Botox" is the name of one of the trademarks of botulinic toxin type A.

The application of this toxin, in Aesthetic Medicine, has become one of the most requested treatments worldwide since it produces a fast and effective correction of wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, thus providing a softer and more youthful face.

It is important to know that at adequate doses this toxin has a relaxing action at the level of the muscles correcting wrinkles already formed and also prevents the deepening of them, it is for this preventive action that there is increasingly more demand for this treatment.

The most frequent concerns of patients are:

Where in the face can the toxin be applied?
- After the assessment of your trusted doctor you will know in which areas you need the application, it is usually used in the upper third of the face for correction and prevention of forehead wrinkles, eyebrows and around the eyes.

How long is the duration?
- The duration can vary from one patient to another and also from the different brands of toxins, around four to six months.

How many days do you see the effect of the toxin?
- We can see the beginning of the effect from 48 hours and in its entirety at 15 days.

What can happen if I do not get the toxin every four to six months?
- When we inject the toxin its relaxing action will cause your muscle to rest, therefore, at six months you will have the same or fewer wrinkles with which you went on your first day of consultation.

What is the difference between the toxin and hyaluronic acid?
- Hyaluronic acid is a filler material therefore it is indicated to recover volumes in the face, botulinum toxin acts at muscular level, does not generate volume in the applied area.

How long does the procedure last?
- The injection of the toxin takes about ten minutes does not need time to rest.
