Antiage Injections of Botulinum Type A

BOTOX

Botulinum toxin type A is an injectable neurotoxin, better known under brand names such as Botox and Dysport. Neurotoxin treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure worldwide and are mainly used to smooth dynamic wrinkles, or those wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions we tend to make day after day. In Ukraine cosmetologists use botox for over 15 years.

Treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, causing them to relax. As a result, your expressions soften and the dynamic wrinkles are greatly reduced.

Botox-type injectables can help an adult patient of any age improve his or her appearance, not only imparting a more youthful look, but also alleviating an overly concerned look, helping you look better refreshed or even more pleasant.

The most commonly treated areas are those where muscle activity influences facial features, such as the following:

  • Glabellar lines (a.k.a. “elevens” or frown lines)
  • Wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Corners of the mouth
  • A “cobblestoned” appearance to the chin

 Pre-treatment consultation

During the consultation, your doctor will evaluate your area of concern and go over your medical history.

Your Botox-type injectable treatment

Just before the actual treatment, you may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area prior to injection, though many patients find this unnecessary, as the needles used to inject botulinum toxins are very thin and the injections are not very deep. Your provider will reconstitute the botulinum toxin into a solution, and inject this solution into the muscle at strategic points. Most patients describe a pinching feeling during the injection, though not much pain.

You will be able to go back to your normal activities right after treatment, but your doctor may ask you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activity, and to keep your head upright for the rest of the day. Mild redness, swelling at the injection site, and bruising are the most common side effects.

Following treatment, you will not see results immediately. This is expected, so do not worry that treatment hasn’t worked. Depending on the patient, product used, and area treated, final results are typically reached 3 to 7 days after initial treatments. If this is your first botulinum toxin treatment, your cosmetic surgeon may initially inject a more conservative amount and touch up the results during a follow up treatment. This helps to ensure natural, optimal results without the risk of over-treating an area.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The wrinkle-reducing effects from botulinum treatments will vary depending on the patient, the area treated, and the product used, but results will typically last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. To maintain your results, your cosmetic surgeon will simply repeat treatment, adjusting dosage and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.

Result:

  • Reduction of the depth and size of wrinkles
  • Improved skin texture and relief
  • Skin lifting

Doctor recommendations after the injection:

  • Please avoid lying down for two to four hours
  • Work with the area injected during an hour after injection
  • Please avoid sun rays and UV rays during the next 3 days
  • Please do not take antibiotics and tranquilizers for 2 weeks after the injection as they will affect effectiveness of the treatment negatively.
  • Please avoid sauna, bathhouse, swimming pool for 7 days after the treatment.
  • The injection is made by a doctor
  • Doctor consultation is free of charge

EXCESIVE SWEATING REDUCTION

Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX/Dysport) is also used to address aesthetic concerns that are associated with nerve and muscle activity, such as reducing excessive sweating. Botulinum type A injections can be used to interrupt the nerve impulses that activate the sweat glands, helping alleviate embarrassment from excessive sweating on the armpits, hands or feet.

BOTOX temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced. Sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because it’s simply not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX. Sweat will continue to be produced elsewhere.

Only 1 treatment required. The result will last for up to 8 month.

BOTOX/Dysport can be used to address:

  • Excessive sweating;
  • Severe underarm sweating;
  • Severe palm sweating;
  • Severe leg sweating;
  • Severe back, face or other parts of body sweating.

Do not use Botox/Dysport if you:

  • Are allergic to any ingredient in Botox/Dysport, another botulinum product, or cow's milk
  • Have an infection at the injection site
  • Have myasthenia
  • Are taking antibiotics or other drugs
  • Are under 16
  • Are pregnant
