Botulinum toxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles where it is applied, which reduces or disappears the wrinkles that appear with movement. Botulinum toxin allows a natural rejuvenation without losing natural facial expressions since it is applied on the muscles responsible for wrinkles respecting those in charge of facial expression. It is applied at the doctor’s office. Results can be seen on the 4th day reaching its full effect after 15 days. Effects may last 4-6 months. After this, it is not mandatory to apply it once again after a specific period of time, each patient can decide when to reply it without worrying about adverse effects. Botulinum toxin can be applied starting the age of 25 to eliminate wrinkles and prevent them from becoming deep.
Botulinum toxin can also be used in patients with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) since sweat production ceases between the second and fourth day of the infiltration, with excellent results lasting up to one year.
