Botulinum Toxin (type A)
Botulinm Toxin injection is one of the most effective method in preventing and treating facial wrinkles.
It is shown that Botulinm Toxin injections which is applied according to the medical principles are safe and effective to remove the wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and “crow’s feet” wrinkles around the eyes as well as to prevent further formation of new wrinkles.
In addition, Botulinm Toxin injections also work for “hyperhydrosis” which is excessive sweating of the armpits (axilla) and palm of the hands by decreasing the amount of sweating.
In the first injection Botulinm Toxin treatments have a 4-6 months of effect, with recurring injections Botulinm Toxin has at least 6 months of duration of action. The mass of facial musculature decreases by recurring Botulinm Toxin injections and therefore a permanent effect of Botox® emerges with time which is the key success in the Botulinm Toxin treatment.
Botulinum toxin type A has two FDA approved brand names: Botulinm Toxin and Dysport®.
