Botulinum toxin

The use of botulinum toxin is one of the most important tools among minimally invasive rejuvenation procedures. Actually the eponymous name for this is botox r as this was the first brand that came to the market. Nowadays there are 3 different toxins that can be safely and effectively used: botox, azzalure or bocoture, each one has different properties and effects for different areas and patients. Muscle education is one of the pillars of our 3d approach to rejuvenation. The muscle movements used in facial and neck mimics play a very important role in facial and neck aging. The muscles are directly related to facial expression such as: smiling, kissing, frowning etc.

As we age we lose bone structure, fat volume and skin density, these not only support the muscle movement but also add some resistance to its movements. So as we age the skin starts to reflect every move, so dynamic and static wrinkles start to appear. One of our goals is not only to rejuvenate but also to have a preventative approach to the aging process. Our team goal is to use this powerful tool to restore a fresher and younger look to facial mimics. Our secret is to not only to customize the plan of applicstion and dose to each patient area according to patterns of contraction and muscle force so that the toxin can have the best duration but still a natural effect.

What to know before Botulinum toxin

What to Know Before Botulinum toxin . Ocean Clinic

Normally botulinum toxin has no downtime. The duration is approx 4-6 months depending on area treated, the amount injected and the loss of fat volume in the specific area. It is a very good procedure to be done alone or combined with other procedures like: injectable fillers, skin boosters, ipl, superficial peelings in the same day.

There is no need for preparation but our team recommend that if women plan on doing eyebrow tattoo the treatment should be done 15 days before. The aftercare is simple and only recommendation is not to rub the area, or do exercize for 24 hours after the procedure.
