Reduce expression lines with botulinum toxin, one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments worldwide. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we perform the latest injectable treatments to offer you natural-looking, refreshed and more radiant skin, without altering your facial expressions.
What botulinum toxin treatment is
Botulinum toxin treatment (known with the trade name Botox) is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments worldwide. It is an injectable treatment that smooths out many types of lines and wrinkles on the face and is suitable for women and men.
The treatment uses botulinum toxin, a natural processed protein, which paralyses temporarily and locally the facial muscles, resulting in a reduction of expression lines.
Since this is a medical procedure, the treatment has to be performed at a fully-equipped clinic by a specialist with knowledge of the area’s anatomy.
How botulinum toxin treatment is performed
The procedure is completely safe, short and simple. The right quantity of botulinum toxin is used that will gradually produce the desired result.
During the first session, Dr Georgopoulos evaluates your skin type and expression lines, and suggests the most suitable treatment for you.
Before the treatment, the area of the skin where botulinum toxin will be injected is carefully cleaned and anaesthetic cream is applied. After cleaning, the doctor uses a pencil to mark where the infusion will be performed.
During the treatment, certain doses of toxin are infused in the right muscles subcutaneously by way of an extremely fine needle. In this way, we stop the contraction of muscles, leading to improved face expressions and softened face wrinkles.
What areas of the body it is indicated for
The parts of the body where botulinum toxin is usually applied are:
- Forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
- Mouth (nasolabial folds).
- Neck, to create a more pronounced definition of the jaw (Nefertiti look) and to reduce horizontal wrinkles.
How long the treatment lasts
Session duration: 20 minutes
Number of sessions: 1
Immediately following treatment, you may return to your daily activities as usual.
What the results of botulinum toxin treatment are
Botulinum toxin treatment has visible results in 3-4 days after infusion. The result is temporary and lasts 4 months on average.
- Reduces expression lines.
- Makes the skin look younger, natural-looking, refreshed and very radiant, without altering your facial expressions.
What the possible complications after botulinum toxin treatment are
Botulinum toxin treatment is extremely safe, without any risk for you. It is being used for more than 35 years in cosmetic plastic surgery and more than 60 years in the treatment of neurological conditions (constant facial seizures, migraines and more).
Following the end of treatment, you will be given detailed instructions on what to avoid and look out for.
What other treatments can botulinum toxin be combined with
For a more comprehensive result, you may combine various treatments in the same session.
For example, if you are interested in reducing the wrinkles and get firmer skin, you may combine botulinum toxin treatment with hyaluronic acid treatment, autologous mesotherapy with PRP, heterologous mesotherapy or Doublo Gold HIFU Face Lifting for treating and lifting deeper tissues.
On your first appointment, the doctor will diagnose your needs and, based on these, will formulate a Geoplasty Signature Treatment plan tailored to your needs. He will select the suitable combination of treatments that can offer you the desired result without affecting one another, and eventually improve your face.
