Botulinum toxin has been used in the cosmetic industry for more than 20 years. It is a protein that is injected to temporarily relax the facial muscles, which are responsible for causing wrinkles in the skin. As the muscles relax, the skin that covers them also relaxes and lines and wrinkles disappear.
Botox treatment has three advantages that practically make it the favorite of many patients: it does not require surgery, it is painless and its effects are immediate.
The effects of botox are not permanent, they can vary between 4 to 6 months, depending on the person. If you want to maintain the effects, the patient must undergo its application repeatedly. Results will begin to be seen within ten days of treatment.
