Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that is injected in minimal quantities into the muscles of your face to relax them or to prevent the development of frown lines. There are different products on the market. The effect is the same, only the degree of purity differs. Essential Aesthetics works with Dysport, Bocouture and Azzalure .

How does BTX work?

Botulinum toxin A works by blocking the nerve impulses in the injected muscles. This prevents the muscles from contracting, resulting in temporarily less movement.
Botulinum toxin A is mainly used in the face for temporary improvement:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines

How long does BTX work?

The effects of the treatment are usually visible for between 3 and 4 months. We are all different, hence the result varies from person to person. Studies show that when you treat with Botulinum Toxin A every 3 to 4 months, the result lasts longer over time. Switching between brands however usually results in a shorter lasting effect as the body has to get used to a new substance again.

Wrinkles too deep

Should a wrinkle be very deep, treatment with Botulinum Toxin A alone is not enough. The depth of the wrinkle can be seen when the muscle is still. A combination of Botulinum Toxin A to stop the muscles and Fillers to fill the wrinkle, might help.

What happens during a BTX treatment?

Count on the treatment taking between 10 to 20 minutes.
The Botulinum toxin A substance is injected into muscles that are close to the surface with a small thin needle. This ensures that that muscle is (temporarily) less activated and can therefore less used. The effect is not immediate but only visible after a number of days.
After the treatment with Botulinum toxin A you can go home immediately. The effect is noticeable after about 3 days. After about 14 days the muscles will have relaxed and the wrinkles be less visible. A first treatment usually works for 3 to 4 months, after the second treatment the effect remains noticeable for 4 to 6 months. Of course it depends on the person but on average you will benefit from the BTX treatment for about 4 to 6 months.
Please note: if you have previously had Botulinum Toxin A and you switch brands, the result may last less long as your body sees another brand of Botulinum Toxin A as a new substance. The second time, the result will last longer again. Unfortunately, it is not possible to estimate in advance how long the result will actually last.

What are the risks of BTX treatment?

  • Sometimes a small blood vessel is accidentally hit during the injection, which can cause a small hematoma. After the injection, a small lump is visible which, disappears rapidly.
  • Another risk is that the muscles that lift the eyelid stop working, in which case you will temporarily have a drooping eyelid.
  • There have been cases of post-treatment headaches.
  • Botulinum toxin A therapy is not used on pregnant women.
  • Sometimes lumps can appear or an allergic reaction occurs.
  • Because Botulinum toxin A works temporarily, the side effects are also temporary.

BTX aftercare

In order to maintain an even distribution, it is important to keep the head upright for a few hours after the treatment and not to lie down. It is also recommended to use the muscles that have received an injection as much as possible for the 2 hours following the treatment. Do not massage and do not bend over. The botulinum toxin A is then better absorbed by the muscle and wrinkles disappear more quickly.

The result is visible after 2 to 3 days. Wrinkles continue to diminish until about 2 weeks after treatment. Because treatment with botulinum toxin A does not provide a lasting result, the treatment should be repeated every 4 to 6 months. Of course, not everyone reacts in the same way to the injections. On average, 90% achieves a very marked reduction in wrinkle(s). The treatment results may be disappointing for a very small percentage.
