BOTULINUM TOXIN (BOTOX)
The perception of beauty varies over time: it can change depending on the age or the time in which we live. Today we tend to search for a beauty that maintains a natural appearance to reflect one’s own personality and individuality. Each treatment with Botox is personalised to meet the needs of the individual patient.
BOTOX: A QUICK AND SAFE TREATMENT WITH A NATURAL RESULT
Eyes are the most prominent and communicative facial element. A tired and sad look can age the entire face. Today, the treatment with botulinum toxin makes it possible, if carried out by expert hands, not only to remove the tired and neurotic features of facial expression, but also to maintain a natural and fresh look.The effects of the treatment last for about 4-5 months: two or three treatments per year give a fresh and natural look to the entire face.
The products used are only of the highest quality and are supported by scientific studies and proven results. In Italy there are three commercial types of botulinum toxin that are approved for aesthetic purposes, namely Vistabex, Azzalure and Bocouture; all of them are equally effective and have long-lasting effects.
WHY CHOOSE THE OCULOPLASTIC SURGEON?
Oculoplastic surgeons are eye doctors who are specialised in eyelid and facial plastic surgery. During the visit, the oculoplastic surgeon will examine the patient’s skin, the type of wrinkles (static or dynamic), their depth and position and any other aesthetic problems on the entire face.
Patients are examined with their face with and without facial expressions (static and dynamic phase).
The oculoplastic surgeons will interview the patient in order to find out their expectations and to determine whether the results of Botox injections are going to be appropriate. If need be, alternatives or additional interventions are suggested.
Each patient will be advised and recommended the most appropriate and new techniques, according to the latest guidelines of the international professional associations
The oculoplastic surgeon uses the botulinum toxin in the treatment of certain diseases of the eye and eyelid, both in children and adults (strabismus, corneal ulcers, blepharospasm, facial asymmetry). Botox is also used to treat excessive sweating in the armpit, hands or feet, with a significant reduction of hyperhidrosis.
WHAT DOES THE BOTOX TREATMENT CONSIST OF?
- The patient is asked to contract the muscles of the area to be treated, in order to determine the correct position for the injections.
- The effect increases in the first few days, and it reaches its maximum in the first two weeks.
- The effects of the treatment last around 4-5 months.
- It is recommended to repeat treatment to maintain the benefits.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? WHAT ARE THE RESULTS AFTER BOTOX?
The operation will be personalised in order to preserve a natural look, to reflect the patient’s personality and the individuality of his/her image, as well as to respect the needs expressed to the surgeon during the pre-surgical interview. The concern over seeing one’s look distorted and ‘not being able to recognise oneself’ is one of the main issue I discuss with the patient
Within a few days, expression wrinkles will straighten out, and furrows on the forehead and around the eyes will be visibly reduced.
Patients will lose their frowning, angry and sad look: the treatment will give a fresh, rested and relaxed gaze, whilst maintaining the naturalness and expressiveness of the face.
