Injectable anti-wrinkle treatment - Botox
Botox removes wrinkles from all areas of face and neck.
What is botox?
Botox is a natural purified protein produced by Clostidium botulinum bacterium. It has been used in medicine for 15 years.
In the beginning, it was used in ophthalmology, neurology, paediatrics, and for years it has been frequently used in cosmetology. In Croatia, the usage of Botox is approved, and, after extensive research, its usage for the purposes of cosmetology was approved in the USA as well.
AESTHETIC EFFECT OF BOTOX
When carefully and precisely injected in small quantities, Botox blocks the contractions of muscles that participate in facial mimics. As a result, facial wrinkles or lines, caused by strong contractions of those muscles, are reduced and removed. Botox affects only the areas to which is has been applied to and its injection is almost painless. The results of Botox become visible 72 hours (three days) after the injection. After Botox application, the face looks younger and fresher. Middle aged people (40 -50) and those approaching that age appear 5 -8 years younger. The face looks natural, so the people in the surroundings notice younger and fresher appearance but are uncertain as to what to attribute that.

HOW LONG DOES THE BOTOX EFFECT LAST AND CAN THE BOTOX INJECTION BE REPEATED?
The result of Botox treatment lasts approximately 4 months or longer for some patients. Botox injection can be repeated unlimited number of times at certain intervals (not affecting the patient’s health). With the repeated treatments, the aesthetic rejuvenation effect lasts longer.
BOTOX TREATMENT OF EXCESSIVE PERSPIRATION
Botox successfully reduces excessive perspiration of armpits with results lasting up to 8 months.
WHO ARE THE PATIENTS?
Generally, the patients are middle-aged men and women, or those approaching that age. These individuals are aware of their physical appearance and quite demanding when it comes to their looks. Therefore, they are trying to maintain their nice youthful appearance by taking various steps. These days, youthful and cared for appearance is becoming imperative. As a result, many people who want to be successful in both professional and private spheres of their lives invest in their looks. Botox injections, without any radical aesthetic surgery procedures, remove wrinkles from face and neck, allowing patients to resume their normal professional and personal activities immediately. Younger people with stronger facial mimic that causes the appearance of frown lines may also undergo Botox treatment, as it successfully removes them. Botox reduces wrinkles at older people, who look younger and fresher after the treatment, but the excess skin that comes with and is indicative of old age can only be removed by aesthetic surgery procedure, not with Botox injections.
BOTOX IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE TO AESTHETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES!
WHAT IS THE SOLUTION FOR PEOPLE WITH CONSIDERABLE EXCESS SKIN ON THEIR EYELIDS, NECK AND CHIN?
Botox is not an alternative solution to aesthetic surgery procedures. Consequently, there are certain situations that demand aesthetic surgery as a solution.
For patients with drooping eyelids, bags under eyes or loose skin on the clinic our clinic, we recommend aesthetic blepharoplasty (removal of excess skin from eyelids) and face lifting (where excess skin from face and neck is removed).
Moreover, to obtain optimal aesthetic effect, aesthetic surgery procedures are often combined with Botox injections.
