All you need to know about Botulinum toxin from plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon Manos Pantelidis

If the first fine lines made their appearance on your face or if you have decided to experience the annoying wrinkles of expression, one of the most effective ways is Botulinum toxin.

It is a medicinal formulation that has as active substance the botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is an extremely effective anti-aging treatment that can face wrinkles between the eyebrows, forehead, neck, upper lip and around the eyes.

Action of Botulinum toxin

The action of Botulinum toxin is based on the botulinum toxin which acts on the skin muscles, relaxes them and inhibits their contraction. This results in eliminating wrinkles created due to the contraction of the muscles. It is a minimally invasive injectable method that gives a natural and beautiful result.


Its application is done through very fine injections and the process is fast and minimally painful. The results become visible after the 4th day and the final image becomes visible after about two weeks. The action of Botulinum toxin lasts from 4 to 6 months and then the contraction of the muscles comes back. To maintain the good result the treatment is good to repeat.

Potential hazards

It is good to emphasize that the drug acts locally and does not circulate in the rest of the body. Substantial risks arise only from poor application technique, so it is important to make the correct choice of the doctor, who can guarantee the minimization of side effects such as bruising, swelling, etc. Even if asymmeances are observed after application, they can be treated with complementary application.
