What is Botox?
Botox is the name for botulinum toxin. It is a neurotoxin (nerve poison) secreted by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
Botox has been used to treat neurological diseases since 1980.
In aesthetic dermatology, the strong and long acting botulinum toxin A is used, but only in such a minimal dose that it does not trigger any reaction on the body.
The effect of Botox is based on inhibiting the release of the transmitter substance acetylcholine, which is responsible for the nerve impulses of the muscles. Through a Botox injection, the corresponding muscle tissue can no longer be tensed for a few months. Botox was approved for medical purposes in 2002 and is used today for the Smoothening of wrinklesbut also with excessive sweating or chronic migraine.
In order to achieve good results from Botox treatments, it is of great importance that they are carried out by doctors who have the anatomical expertise to do so and who are familiar with the correct individualised dosage and sterile administration of Botox.
Areas of application for Botox
Botox for the forehead
With a Botox treatment, small expression lines, such as frown lines between the eyes, can be smoothed out. No anaesthetic is required. Dr Orasche uses synthetically produced Botox of the highest quality in the laboratory. The powder is diluted in a saline solution and the individual dose is determined.
The area to be treated is first cooled and disinfected. Then a very thin needle is applied under the skin in the area of the corresponding small muscles. Botox paralyses their function so that wrinkles can no longer form temporarily.
Botox for the lips
Contrary to popular belief, Botox is not normally used for lip augmentation. It is possible in principle, but usually the filler hyaluronic acid is used to model the lips. Lips can be treated very well with Botox, but it can cause annoying wrinkles around the mouth.
With Botox, experienced dermatologists have the possibility to raise the eyebrows without surgery. In this process, the muscle pull of the forehead muscles is controlled by targeted injections of Botox. Normally, the effect of Botox can be seen after two weeks. The eyebrows lift by 1 to 3 cm and the eyelid wrinkles disappear. Alternatively, Dr. Orasche can perform a thread lift or combine Botox with hyaluronic acid for optimal results.
Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Therapy with botulinum toxin A has proven to be an effective measure for excessive sweating. The nerve toxin inhibits the release of acetylcholine from the nerve cells, which normally stimulates the sweat glands to become active. This makes you sweat less. The effect lasts for about six months, after which new nerve cells have grown into the sweat glands - the treatment has to be repeated.
Botox for migraine:
In the treatment of chronic migraine, the doctor applies Botox to several points in the muscles of the head, neck and shoulder area. This relaxes the treated muscles. The use of Botox for migraine can prevent or relieve further migraine attacks.
Frequently asked questions about Botox treatment
Botox is injected for the treatment of forehead wrinkles (frown lines), chin and eye wrinkles (crow's feet). There are also applications for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraine. A specialist medical history is taken for each application.
The visible result of the Botox treatment sets in after two to three days, the full effect after about one week. The effect depends on the individual's ability to regenerate and lasts between three and six months.
The duration of Botox wrinkle injections is limited and lasts about four to six months. If you are satisfied with the treatment, it can be repeated as often as you like to prolong the effect.
All substances can, in extremely rare cases, cause the formation of so-called granulomas. These are small nodules that occur in the body, possibly as a reaction to foreign substances.
When Botox is used cosmetically, bruising (blue spots) or short-term headaches may occur. If too much is injected or if it is injected in the wrong places, facial expressions may be paralysed, resulting in a "mask-like face". The risk of side effects from local injections with Botox is reduced when performed by qualified specialists.
Dr. Orasche has many years of experience with this type of treatment and makes sure that the injections lead to a natural-looking result.
For a treatment of mildly pronounced frown lines, about 20 Botox units are needed (four injections of five units each). The dosage for deep frown lines is between 30 and 40 Botox units.
Botox has a dangerous effect on the human body from 2500 units.
Dr.Orasche conducts a detailed consultation at the beginning of the treatment.
