Botulinum toxin - Botox and facial wrinkles. How it works?
Botox is a potent natural toxin that inhibits the neurotransmitter that controls the transmission of impulses between nerves and muscles or glands. It inhibits the activity of facial muscles by blocking the conduction of nerve impulses to small facial muscles. There is no contraction of the affected muscle. The contracting muscles cease to be used, the face becomes more cheerful, with smooth furrows. In the case of sweat glands, botox blocks their activity, reducing the symptoms of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botulinum toxin is equally effective in men and women. To remove facial wrinkles, very low concentrations of toxin are used, which have no effect on other elements of the nervous system outside the area in which the injection is given.
At the Aesthetic Medicine Skin Clinic Eskulap mmKisiel in London, Birmingham and Slupsk, botox can be used to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, but also to lift the corners of the lips, raise droopy eyebrows, and to get rid of excessive sweating on the forehead, hands or feet. Botox is also one of the recognized methods of combating headaches – migraines and bruxism – grinding teeth (jaw clenching). Call today to arrange a consultation 07747474755.
