BOTOX (Botulinum Toxin)
Temporary removal of facial lines and wrinkles
Botox is a toxin, produced by the botulinum bacteria. Very low doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly in to the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. It temporarily blocks the nerve impulse that causes muscle contraction.
Botox has been used in aesthetic medicine for over 10 years, and in neurology and ophthalmology for more than 20.
Botox is safe if used properly. Patients rarely experience side effects. If any, side effects are usually mild or moderate and are usually reversible. Choosing an experienced doctor for the treatment, you minimize the risk of side effects.
Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) treatment
Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is the medical condition of having over active sweat glands. It is unknown why some people experience excessive sweating, and others do not. It is possible genetic basis of the irregularity.
One of the best recommended treatment for excessive sweating is the injection of small doses of botox into the skin. Botox blocks the actions of the nerves that prevents the glands from producing sweat.
The first results of the treatment appear after 3 to 7 days.
The injections will remain effective from a few toseveral months, depending on the patient. The more frequently the treatment is repeated, the longer the effect.
Botox is used to treat the following conditions:
- crow’s feet
- forehead wrinkles
- frown wrinkles
- exessive sweating
