WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?

Before the procedure, the specialist-dermatocosmetologist examines the patient's skin, collects detailed information about the health of the patient and undertaken cosmetic procedures, finds out if the patient has any chronic diseases or allergic reactions.
If there are indications to the procedure, then the specialist chooses a filler, which is designed for solution of particular problems.

Before the procedure, the skin is to be cleaned; make-up removal with the use of cosmetic units as well as chlorhexidine antiseptic solution treatment are carried out. By the patients request, the local anesthesia is applied. Then treatment injection lines are applied. Next step Botox injection procedure is carried out in the area of potential action. There exist a few methodics of Botox injection, and the specialist chooses an injection technique and dosage in accordance with the desired result. Toxin dosage (in units of Botox) is selected individually for every patient in dependence to depth, number and location of wrinkles. Cosmetic effect (wrinkle resurfacing) becomes visible within 5 to 7 days after the procedure and lasts 4 to 6 months. After that, the Botox procedure is required for prolongation of the positive effect. With every following procedure, the result lasts longer.
