The face is the calling card of every person. And in order to design a "business card" with dignity, cosmetology and medicine have developed many ways. To keep your face young and fresh, you do not need to resort to plastic surgery and risk your health. An excellent alternative to plastic is botulinum therapy, which is very popular nowadays. What is this?
Botox injections are the introduction of botulinum toxin under the skin, a substance of natural origin, which stops the transmission of impulses from the nerve to the muscle. A preparation containing botulinum toxin detoxifies the protein acetylcholine, which causes facial muscle contraction. As a result, during the action of the toxin, the muscle relaxes and the formation of wrinkles stops, and those that are already there become less noticeable. The contents of the injection slowly dissolve on average within six months, if the metabolism is not accelerated naturally or artificially (under the influence of any drugs) - in this case, the resorption period may be shorter.
If at the dawn of botox therapy the procedure was quite expensive, now botulinum therapy is available to every woman - the price is more than democratic. In the SkinMedical cosmetology center for any problem area, qualified cosmetologists will select Botox injections with drugs from proven and reliable manufacturers that will help everyone stay young and beautiful, our clinic is located in Kiev.
Botulinum therapy - indications and contraindications, where to get a qualified procedure in Kiev
Injection therapy for wrinkles is recommended for those who want to remove wrinkles around the eyes, deep wrinkles on the forehead and / or in the glabellar area, only formed early creases, the consequences of too active facial expressions - a network of wrinkles on the forehead, around the mouth and eyes, also drooping eyebrows, asymmetry of the face, loose skin in the décolleté area, neck rings of Venus, a smile with opening the gums. Botox injections at the SkinMedical Cosmetology Center in the city of Kiev are performed only with high-quality drugs purified from impurities, and the price for beauty injections is available to everyone.
The botulinum therapy procedure performed by a highly qualified specialist has many advantages:
● almost instant effect;
● no deep anesthesia is required;
● natural protein increases the elasticity of the skin;
● there is no immobility of the facial muscles;
● some shallow scars, if any, are removed;
● time spent on the session;
● the contents of the drug are completely excreted from the body.
Note: Botox is a procedure that can also be used to correct the shape of the face if there is a clear asymmetry. Only a qualified specialist should carry out the procedure. The low cost of the Botox procedure sometimes leads to disastrous consequences.
Botox injections are contraindicated in some cases, these are:
● periods of pregnancy and lactation;
● severe myopia;
● oncological diseases;
● period of taking antibiotics and anticoagulants;
● inflamed skin in the areas with which the drug will interact;
● state of exacerbation of infectious and chronic diseases;
● low blood clotting.
In the absence of all of the above contraindications, it is necessary to pass an analysis for sensitivity to botulinum toxin, its increased level is also a contraindication to injection.
Botox for the skin - possible complications
Botox for wrinkles on the forehead and other areas, if performed by an inexperienced master or in the presence of special reactions to the composition of the injection, can cause some complications:
● swelling at the injection site;
● creases where they should not be;
● the emergence of excessively dense areas;
● immobility of the lips;
● split eyes.
A headache is mainly due to a special reaction to the composition of the injection, as well as if the recipient of the injection consumed alcohol less than two days before the procedure was performed or after it for one to two days.
A common reaction to interference with the integrity of the skin is puffiness, which forms immediately after the procedure. However, if edema appeared a week later or later, it may be an interaction of the drug with impaired kidney or heart function, as well as hormonal disruptions. Excessive alcohol consumption or the habit of sleeping with your face in a pillow leads to prolonged swelling after injection.
After the Botox procedure, a temporary asymmetry may form, this indicates a little experience of the cosmetologist - in this case, the price determines the quality, for a specialist with extensive experience the service is more expensive. In most cases, asymmetry goes away when the excess toxin is removed from the body.
Extra creases are the result of intervention and a change in the load on the facial muscles. They leave in a week and a half. Too dense areas of the skin indicate either an incorrectly calculated amount of Botox, or a reaction to the drug. Lip immobilization affects those who inject into the area between the upper lip and nose. Professionals are aware of this problem and try to inject a minimum amount of the drug into this zone - it is the excess of toxin that leads to numbness of the lips.
Special attention should be paid to such a complication as duality in the eyes. To prevent it from occurring, you should fully follow the doctor's recommendations. With botulinum therapy in the forehead and eyes, it is necessary to take a lying position as little as possible so that the drug does not disperse in the circular muscle of the eye. If this happens, you will have to wait for the complete elimination of the toxin, that is, several months.
