Know more about Botox

Before only used in ophthalmology and neurology, botulinum toxin or Botox ®, its trade name, has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 10 years. It is derived from the bacterium that causes botulism (Clostridium botulinum), but when handled at very low doses and for medicinal purposes, does not generate any harm.

Botulinum toxin is a neuromuscular blocking agent that paralyzes the muscles when it comes into contact with it. After being injected into the muscle, it paralyzes it and stops excessive contraction. Botulinum toxin relaxes the skin and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. The botulinum toxin injections are made on the forehead and on the side of the eyes. It can also be applied in the neck by decreasing the platysma layer of skin.


Wrinkles on the face, forehead, between the eyebrows or the corners of the eyes.


Is not necessary. Can be used as an anesthetic ointment.

Duration of the procedure:

The application of Botox on the face lasts 20 to 30 minutes.

Final result:

The result of the application of botulinum toxin begins to appear in about 2 to 3 days. The final result can be seen around 1 to 2 weeks.


There are no side effects in the use of Botox ®. There may be a slight swelling on the site during the day of application. Eventually, bruises may appear. No need for rest and the patient can resume normal activity immediately. The only recommendations are not to massage the area and prevent sleeping or lying down in the first two hours. Moreover, one should not engage in physical activity on the day of application. The patient can resume physical activities and wear face creams around 24 hours after the procedure.

Duration of Results:

The results usually take 4 to 6 months. This time varies from one patient to another and can be longer. To keep maintain them, you need to reapply the product.

What is the application of Botox like?

The application of Botox is done on the face with very thin disposable syringes and needles at predetermined points and is virtually painless.
