Injected Neurotoxin Treatment has been having a dynamic presence in Medicine for more than 35 years and is the most popular aesthetic anti-aging facial treatment, regardless of gender and age.
"Neurotoxin is a pharmaceutical substance that is injected into the muscles of adults and is used in aesthetic medicine to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles, in areas such as the forehead, crow's feet area and midface, without altering facial features. So your face has the same appearance, but without the unsightly wrinkles," says dermatologist Dr Amalia Tsiatoura.
The modern trend in aesthetic dermatology is the preventive treatment with Neurotoxin, in order to slow down the appearance of wrinkles and keep the face young and fresh for a longer period of time. Essentially, preventive Neurotoxin Treatment acts by reducing the secretion of acetylcholine from motor neurons and, consequently, slightly reducing the contraction of facial mimic muscles. Thus, fine lines are faded and at the same time the natural glow of the face is emphasized.
Preventive Treatment with Neurotoxin is suggested to be applied during the appearance of the first non-permanent fine lines. With timely application of the treatment, the establishment of permanent forehead and eye wrinkles is prevented. It begins to be applied at the age of 20-25 years, the age when the collagen of the skin begins to decrease, as fibroblasts reduce the production of collagen and elastin. This preventive treatment is recommended to be applied at an early age to achieve the desired results, while at older ages its effect is limited. The duration of preventive treatment with Neurotoxin is 4-5 months, after which it should be repeated.
The amount of solution used depends on the facial area, as we do not want to cause dyskinesia, but rather achieve a natural result.
Neurotoxin Injection Treatment can be applied for:
For more than 3 decades, Neurotoxin Treatment has been the ally of men and women in the battle against the signs of aging and the marks the expressions sooner or later leave on our faces, giving immediate and spectacular results. It is a minimally invasive method and gives spectacular results in eliminating facial expression wrinkles. It is the most popular aesthetic treatment and counts over 6 million applications annually.
Generally, wrinkles are lines that appear on the skin and their appearance starts early, from almost 20 years of age. Over time, however, wrinkles become more and more. Wrinkles are divided into dynamic and static, with the former being mainly due to facial movement, which is why we call them "expression wrinkles", while the latter are formed due to gravity and facial relaxation. Apart from the time that does not leave the face unchanged, there are other factors that contribute to the appearance of wrinkles. These factors include heredity, sunlight, smoking, air pollution, diet, and hormonal changes.
In recent years, the method has been applied not only for the treatment and elimination of already established dynamic wrinkles, but also preventively in young people, in the early stages of the appearance of expression lines, in order to avoid their permanentization. It is the most popular and effective anti-aging treatment, against expression wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead, on the neck, as well as around the eyes on the "goose leg".
When applied to the face, the treatment targets the facial mimic muscles responsible for the formation of expressions and the wrinkles they create, causing their selective relaxation and reduction in mobility. In other words, it temporarily inactivates the mimic muscles that cause facial expressions such as anger, joy, sadness, surprise, etc. An example of the action of the mimetic muscles is that of the movement of the eyelids. The sphincter of the eyelids, as it contracts to close the eyelid, also causes the formation of radial wrinkles around the eyes. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines are softened without losing the natural expressiveness of the face.
Therefore, the application of Neurotoxin injections is done with very fine injections, locally on the muscles we want to relax. Injected Neurotoxin treatment is an almost irreplaceable method with amazing results.
Neurotoxin Injections are mainly applied to the upper face:
The results of Neurotoxin Treatment last 4-6 months, depending on the elasticity of the skin and the expressiveness of the face and the treatment should usually be repeated twice a year.
In people over 50 years of age, the duration of the results may be shortened.
Neurotoxin Treatment should not be applied when skin infections or musculoskeletal diseases (such as myasthenia gravis) are present.
Αντιθέτως, όταν η θεραπεία γίνεται τακτικά (2-3 φορές το χρόνο), αυξάνεται η δράση της δίχως να αγριεύει το πρόσωπο. Έτσι, οι ρυτίδες παραμένουν λείες και το δέρμα πιο νεανικό για μεγαλύτερο χρονικό διάστημα.
Ιδανικά, η θεραπεία πρέπει να ξεκινά σε νεαρές ηλικίες (προληπτική δράση) μόλις γίνουν ορατές οι πρώτες ρυτίδες ώστε να προλάβουμε τη μόνιμη εγκατάσταση τους.
