BOTULINE TΟΧΙNE (BΟΤΟΧ, DΙSΡΟRΤ)
It causes temporary paralysis of the mimic muscles of the face and neck where deep wrinkles appear with the passage of time on the forehead, midbrow, root of nose, external eyelid corners, around the mouth, on the chin and neck area – expression wrinkles.
Intramuscular injection of a certain amount of botulin toxin in particular facial muscles causes temporary reduction of their contracting ability and therefore correction of deep wrinkles for 4-6 months depending on the dose of botox units and the strength of muscles themselves. The only contraindication is Gravis myopathy.
It is a natural, water absorbing substance of the body, used to fill deep wrinkles, to give volume on the face when there is lack of volume, to correct laxity and ptosis or the oval shape of the face, to help in the augmentation or symmetry of the lips, to correct semi atrophy – asymmetry of the face or even to change the shape and size of the nose.
When used at correct indications and doses it is a great tool of rejuvenation and re-freshness of the face, neck and hands lasting 6-12 months because it is naturally absorbed by the body.
ASSYMETRY OF THE UPPER LIP
It is the most effective and powerful mesotherapy with autologous growth factors that we collect after centrifusing the patient’s own blood and using only the serum and platelets.
Growth factors attract and activate fibroblasts – cells that produce collagen and elastic fibers – to proliferate and produce these products in the areas of face, neck, upper chest wall, or hairy scalp that are injected under local anaesthesia with multi niddling. The result is total rejuvenation, boost of elasticity, deep hydration, diminishing of discoloration and small wrinkles. No other method can obtain this great skin rejuvenation (deep hydration, elasticity, skin smoothing and shining) without “burning” of the skin and prolonged rehabilitation time.
This mesotherapy is also used to rejuvenate hair on the scalp using similar protocols of 3-4 sessions.
Threads are special, usually absorbable types of sutures, placed under the skin in different ways that pull the soft tissues under the skin in an upward and oblique trend when put on the face and a horizontal and backward trend on the neck.
Easy technique, performed at the doctor’s office, under minimum local anaesthesia at the insertion and exit points of the sutures in the face and neck. The result will not last longer than 1-2 years and is not comparable with the face or neck lift. It is indicated for younger and middle aged patients with minimum laxity of skin and soft tissue.
