Mimic wrinkles arise as a result of reducing skin elasticity and reducing its firmness on the face. The first mimic wrinkles appear around the age of twenty-five. As a rule, the so-called crow's feet, lion's wrinkle and horizontal forehead wrinkles and nasolabial folds are the most visible. Over the years, as a result of repetitive facial expressions, wrinkles and furrows deepen. The formation of wrinkles, apart from the passage of time, is also influenced by: ultraviolet rays, improper nutrition, unhygienic lifestyle, excessive facial expressions, as well as incorrect head position during sleep, or too little sleep.
Botulinum neurotoxin is the most popular method of reducing facial wrinkles and one of the best proven (over 20 years of experience) and safe methods used in aesthetic medicine. Botox is a natural preparation in the form of purified botulinum toxin. Injected in a small dose, it paralyzes the mimic muscles, which are responsible for the formation of wrinkles that appear during the aging process or caused by vivid facial expressions. By relaxing the muscles, Botox counteracts wrinkling and folding of the skin for a youthful appearance. The dose for cosmetic purposes is adjusted individually and completely safe. The advantage of Botox is that it only works in the muscles into which it has been injected, while other muscles continue to function as before. After the treatment, the facial expression does not change, but the complete or partial disappearance of mimic wrinkles is observed.
