Face and Forehead Botulinum Toxin
What is Botulinum Toxin? Or more importantly “What Botulinum Toxin isn’t?”
In 1820 dr. Justinus Kerner has discovered that a bacteria that can be found on stale sausages produces what we call Botulinum Toxin A . In the 1950s with the discovery that this toxin relaxes muscles, it has been started to be used for strabismus treatments. And finally in 1989, Allergan company developed and bottled the botulinum toxin A that we use today. With approval from the FDA, “Botulinum Toxin” was born and is the most used aesthetic treatment today. small wrinkles around the eyes and forehead areas can be treated with Botulinum Toxin.
These wrinkles occur due to mimic activities, and Botulinum Toxin will let them release themselves therefore reducing wrinkles. In addition to this, you can think of these wrinkles as crevices and scars inside the skin. If the effects of the years passed bigger, you shouldn’t expect Botulinum Toxin to fix these like they never were. Of course repeated applications will improve its effects. If muscles on the injection area are no longer working, this means the application was successful. No problems until now, right? Let’s talk about what this wonderful treatment can’t do.
Botulinum Toxin is not a filler substance. Don’t dream about getting Botulinum Toxin on the crevices around your nose. Botulinum Toxin can’t give your lips a thicker look either. It works a little on the small wrinkles on top of the lips, but you must be careful. Those wrinkles are caused by your lip muscles. In order for them to cease to exist, your lip muscles should cease to move. You can see the problem: you need those muscles to move your mouth.
Botulinum Toxin can be used around the eyes but not under them, because one of the preventing factors of under eye pillows is your muscles. Yes, some people don’t suffer from this side effect but the reason for this is either their orbital septum tissue is strong or that they don’t have that much fat tissue under their eyes. In short, it is not logical to ask the same results on the undereye area as around the eyes, because Botulinum Toxin can’t be done there. Botulinum Toxin is not extracted from snakes, there are no substances (balms etc.) that have the effects of Botulinum Toxin. Botulinum Toxin is injected inside the muscles with very tiny needles, and it is a very powerful toxin. What balm can penetrate the tissues before the muscle to stop it? In the end we need to fix the muscles to fix the mimics.
If your age is high or you have sagging and excess skin on your temple area, this means you’re a candidate for temporal lifting.
