Botox therapy for facial wrinkles

Botox is a natural purified protein produced by the bacteria Clostidium botulinum, which has been used in medicine for the last ten years. In the beginning, the range of applications was in ophthalmology, neurology, pediatrics, and, in recent years, it is the most used in cosmetology, or aesthetic procedures.

About the procedure

Botox treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure performed by a doctor in the Poliklinika Bagatin. It is performed in a way that the compound is injected under the skin in areas where the wrinkles should be removed or diminished. The procedure is simple, painless and takes only a few minutes.

The result of the procedure, as well as with similar aesthetic treatments, is not permanent because a substance that would completely stop the inevitable process of aging  has not been discovered yet.

It is worth mentioning that the treatment was approved  in the year 2002.  by the American organization Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which controls the quality and safety of food and drugs. Studies show that only in the USA, after the approval, for the treatment of Botox more than a million people have decided to try it.

Am I a candidate?

Treatment should not be carried out if there is an infection in the places that the compound should be injected. Also, it should not be implemented on patients who are sensitive or allergic to any components of the preparation. Patients with certain neurological disorders (ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) have an increased risk of serious side effects.

How do you prepare?

After reviewing the facial muscles doctor Bagatin will decide in which areas should the preparation be precisely injected.

It requires an in-depth insight into the layout and structure of the facial muscles because  they  may have significant differences. Many inadequately trained doctors ignore this fact and therefore their results are not satisfactory.

Before dr. Bagatin will approve a treatment, tell him if you are breast-feeding, if you are planning to become pregnant soon, or if you are suffering from a disease that affects the nerves or muscles (disease increases the risk of side effects).

During the procedure

Botox is carefully and precisely applied in very small quantity in the face of the patient, and blocks the work of particular muscles involved in facial mimics. This will reduce and remove wrinkles on the face, caused by strong activity of these muscles.

The effect of the preparation is localized  only in the areas which have been injected. The application itself is almost painless because it very thin needles are used. Places that are commonly treated are wrinkles on the forehead, fine lines on the outside of the eyes, wrinkles above the upper lip, wrinkles from  the  lip angle to the chin, bumps on the chin and wrinkles on the neck.

The effect is visible after a few days. Facial rejuvenation can be gradually implemented and lasts  up to a month. The durability of the final results of the procedure varies, according to the individual characteristics (in most cases about 4 months).

The treatment can be repeated time and time again because it is not harmful for the health of the patient. It is only required that between treatments there is an appropriate time interval, which is determined by doctor Bagatin.

In most cases, treatment is repeated every 4 months in order to maintain a youthful and fresh look. It is important to mention that with repeated treatments the aesthetic effect of rejuvenation is more permanent.
