What is Botox?

ботокс варна

The history of Botox dates back more than 120 years. It was first discovered in the late 19th century by a Belgian scientist. Clostridium botulinum, която е отговорна за  синтезирането на т.нар ботулинов токсин. Белгиецът е имал за задача да разкрие причините зад масово хранително натравяне от консумация на колбаси (инфекциозното заболяване „ботулизъм“). През 1920 учени от Калифорнийския университет правят първи опити да изолират ботулиновия токсин, което им отнема над 20 години. През 1970 започва използването му за лечение на кривогледство. По време на терапиите се установява, че токсинът също изглажда и бръчките в зоната между веждите.След като е била доказана неговата ефективност Американската Allergan лицензира лечението и брандира продукта си Ботокс.

How does Botox work ?

Whenever we make any movements with our face, the nerves send impulses to the muscles that make them contract and relax, which also allows us to make different types of facial expressions. The insertion of Botox blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscle, leading to its permanent relaxation - i.e. without shortening. This also prevents the formation of creases. It is for this reason that Botox is effective in removing wrinkles formed by muscle movement, but not those resulting from skin relaxation. It can be said that Botox stops the formation of wrinkles and prevents the appearance of new ones. The logic is that the fewer facial expressions we make, the smoother our face will remain.

Application of Botox?

Botulinum toxin is used in medicine to treat muscle cramps, strabismus, profuse sweating (hyperhidrosis) and other conditions related to the neuromuscular system, and new fields of application continue to be discovered.

In aesthetic medicine, it is used to treat various areas on the face. Botox placement shows best results on the upper face and more specifically:

  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • "Angry wrinkles" - located between the eyebrows (glabella)
  • Crow's feet wrinkles - on the sides of the eyes

It can also be used to lift the eyebrows by increasing the distance between the eyelid and the eyebrow. This removes the tired look and makes the face look fresher.

How does the procedure work?

Botox insertion goes quickly, in about 10-15 minutes. In most cases, there is no need to numb the area, but a local anaesthetic cream can be applied if the patient wishes. First, a careful disinfection of the area where the Botox is to be inserted is performed. Small amounts are then injected using a fine needle into precisely defined areas. The sensation during the procedure is of a slight prickling. Due to the size of the needle, the feeling of discomfort is minimal. The advantage of the therapy is that you can return to your normal routine immediately afterwards and do not need to recover.

Results and durability of Botox ?

Първоначалното действие на ботокс може да бъде видяно в рамките на първите 3 дни след процедурата, като финалният резултат настъпва до около две седмици  след това. Средната продължителност на ефекта е около 3-4 месеца, особено когато се поставя ботокс за първи път. Обикновено при последващи процедури се наблюдава удължено действие – от 4 до 6 месеца. Определящо значение има скоростта, с която организмът ви разгражда ботулиновия токсин.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care after Botox?

You should not stand bent over for 4-5 hours after therapy. Do not touch or massage the treated areas to avoid spreading Botox to other parts of the face. Physical exertion and intense heat (sauna, steam bath, solarium) should be avoided for several days.

After what age is therapy appropriate?

Обикновено нуждата се появява най-рано при хора над 28-30 години. Следва да се вземе впредвид, че инжектирането на ботулинов  токсин освен да изглажда бръчки има и за цел да предотвратява тяхното появяване. Горната граница е около 65 години. Тогава кожата става по отпусната и този тип терапия става неефикасна.

Are wrinkles completely erased after Botox?

In cases where the wrinkles are superficial or not very deep, the effect is their complete stretching and obliteration. When the wrinkles are very deep, it is difficult to achieve one hundred percent smoothing, but the effect is significant, making them slightly noticeable.

Before the procedure?

A week before therapy, the use of aspirin containing Vitamin E should be avoided. Because they increase the likelihood of hematomas after conception. Also, 24 hours before, alcohol should not be consumed.

How many times can I inject botulinum toxin?

There is no limit to how many times a year it can be placed. The important rule is to wait for complete degradation before a new dose of Botox is inserted. This avoids overlaying and creating the so-called "wax effect"-an unnaturally stretched and shiny face.

Are there any contraindications?

  • pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • some serious neurological diseases
  • infections and infectious diseases
  • bacterial or viral infections in the injected area
