Botox is a Botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein and a neurotoxin produced by Bacterium Clostridium. In the last two decades Botox brought the greatest advancement in modern aesthetic and general medicine, and it is also the most popular and effective aesthetic treatment in the world. It removes fine and deep wrinkles, improves contours of the face and eyes, and its effect is visible within a few days without fear of a surgical knife. Botox effectively removes wrinkles on the forehead, frowns and tiny eye wrinkles. It can additionally remove wrinkles on the nose and raise eyebrows, lip corners and tighten the neck.
Recently, a treatment called ‘Baby botox’ (micro botox) which is performed with lower doses of botox injections and eliminates the vast majority of unwanted lines of treated areas while keeping facial expressions, is extremely popular. A small dose allows movement of the facial muscles, resulting in a more natural result. The effect may be slightly shorter than standard botox. Baby botox can be used in the late twenties, in the early stages of the development of wrinkles to prevent their development.
