    Botox in Spain

    The botulinum toxin, also known as botox, has not always had the best reputation among the general public. However, botox in Spain is today one of the most popular anti-aging treatments to wipe out the passing of time.

    Botox in Spain: overview

    No anesthesia is needed during the quick and pain-free botox administration. Botulinum toxin is used to relax muscles and help them remain un-contracted.

    Botox injections are potentially safe though they require some kind of “savoir-faire” and experience from performing professionals. This is why, botox treatments should only be carried out by specialized doctors.

    It is important for the specialist to be very precise when dosing botulinum toxin. The amount of injected botox will vary in every particular case. Actually, when patients present a strong and thick muscular constitution, the botox dosage used might be higher than usual though the doctor cannot possibly venture to induce an expressionless face.

    The facial area to be botox-injected has to be considered too before the injection and an expert knowledge of the muscular anatomy is vital to obtain the best possible aesthetic results.

    Common Botox treated areas

    Botox or botulinum toxin is used to treat wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions and those formed by muscle contractions in the following areas:

    • Forehead
    • Eyebrow area (known as “lion’s wrinkle”)
    • Corner of the eye (known as “crow’s feet”)

    The results of Botox in Spain

    Results usually start to show 2 to 3 days after the injection has been performed. They are even more significant after a week or 10 days. Additional injections can be administered under local anesthesia 2 weeks after the first one.

    However, botulinum toxin effects disappear after 4 to 5 months depending on the patient anatomy.

    Botox injections are usually recommended to be performed twice a year, every six months approximately.

    It is also advisable to combine botox injections and some other kind of anti-aging treatment like dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid, laser treatment, facial mesotherapy… to ensure better and more durable results.

    The risks of botox

    Until the date and, with over a decade of experience in the field, the only proven risks show to be transitory. Such risks are due, in most cases, to a medical malpractice when injecting the product.
