What you need to know about Botulinum toxin INJECTION
Botulinum toxin injections are a treatment in aesthetic medicine characterised by the administration of small doses into specific muscles, aiming to give the muscle a relaxation whose effects can last several months. Initially, botulinum toxin was used in medicine to prevent neuromuscular spasms of the eyelids and to correct strabismus, but in 1987 it began to be used in the United States in surgery and cosmetic medicine as well. The injection of botulinum toxin is mainly used to eliminate expression lines and in cases of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Several skin imperfections can be treated with botulinum toxin:
- forehead wrinkles;
- lip wrinkles;
- wrinkles around the eyes;
- hyperhidrosis. Botulinum toxin injections are reversible, the procedure last only a few minutes and leave no visible after-effects that could prevent the immediate resumption of daily activities. This explains the great success and rapid spread of this new treatment in the field of aesthetic medicine.

Procedure for Botox injections
The treatment with botulinum toxin takes place during daylight at a hospital, without anaesthesia, and lasts about 15 to 20 minutes. The botulinum toxin is injected with a small syringe inside the mimetic muscles at the origin of the wrinkles. The drug is injected with a very fine needle in minor quantities into the concerned muscles. During the treatment, there may be a tingling sensation. Botulinum toxin injections block the chemical signals determined by the nerves, mainly the signals that cause the muscles to contract. The result is a targeted muscle paralysis, which can have therapeutic or cosmetic effects, for example in the treatment of expression lines. With minimal doses it is possible to achieve a natural reduction of expression lines in the middle of the eyebrows and on the forehead, ensuring a rested, relaxed and fresh appearance. The best results are achieved in the horizontal forehead wrinkles, the vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows and those around the eyes. The measured use of botulinum toxin allows a respectful rejuvenation of the facial features, leaving expressions intact and giving a rested appearance without the patient being able to perceive the treatment. For the lips, on the other hand, the administration of botulinum toxin in the areas close to the mouth is dangerous because of the risks involved. Indeed, it can alter the use of the masticatory muscles and even create speech disorders. For this reason, in order to reduce lip wrinkles, aesthetic doctors prefer the filler technique, which consists of injecting hyaluronic acid. Another application of botulinum toxin is its use to minimise or eliminate sweating in areas such as the hands, feet and armpits through painless micro-injections (hyperhidrosis treatment). This treatment effectively eliminates excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet.
After-effects of Botulinum toxinBotulinum toxin injections temporarily relax the non-superficial facial muscles that cause wrinkles, making them less visible. After a botulinum toxin treatment, there are very specific rules to follow. Avoid touching the area for at least a day, and when applying make-up, you should not scratch or rub. Heat sources such as saunas, Turkish baths or activities involving heat for example ironing with a steam iron are forbidden for at least two days. In addition, you should never go to bed immediately after Botox treatment. Botulinum toxin injections is a light procedure and reversible, which explains the great success and rapid spread of this new treatment in the field of aesthetics.
Just 10 minutes after the botulinum toxin injections, it is possible to apply make-up, return to work and carry out normal daily activities. It is advisable to wait about ten days before exposing yourself to the sun. After the infiltration, the face is slightly reddened only in the areas where the injection was made and only for a few minutes. A small bruise may sometimes appear, but this tends to disappear within a few days.
