15 questions and answers about botox

1. How does it work?
Dynamic facial wrinkles, are those that are marked more before certain gestures of our face, such as frowning the forehead or the brows,. They  are produced by the movement of muscles below them. The Vistabel-botox, when injected into those muscles, blocks the electrical impulse that reaches them and weakens it. The muscles relax and the wrinkles are attenuated first and, after a variable time, between 4 and 10 days, almost disappear.

2. So the result is not immediate?

No. The result gradually appears as the days go by, which is an advantage for the patient, since no one will suddenly notice that an aesthetic treatment has been made on the face. Little by little, the appearance will improve, and one day those who usually see the patient will tell him that she/he  looks better, "more beautiful. Or more handsome, without knowing why.

3. What wrinkles can be treated with Vistabel-Botox®?

Mainly we treat the wrinkles of the forehead, the brows, and the so-called "crow's feet".

4. How long does the treatment effect last?

 The full effect of botox is achieved between 4 and 8 days.. This effect lasts approximately 4 to 6 months. From there, the patient can undergo another treatment, which will surely be more durable than the first. While this depends on each person, there are patients in whom the botox effect lasts for more than five or six months.

5. Is it a reversible treatment?

Yes. The muscular block lasts for a certain time, and after 3 to 6 months, the treated muscle returns to resume its mobility and, therefore, the lines of wrinkles generated by its movement will appear.

Only a few cares mus be observed: you should not rub your face when washing it, but simply throw water on it.
