This technique is highly safe since type A (extracted of a bacterium) purified is based on the use of botulinum toxin who is applied in minimum and innocuous doses. One is a protein that what does is to inhibit the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, person in charge of the transmission of the nervous impulse that brings about the muscular contraction. Noncause acts at local level and damage nor physical injury in the nervous structure.
The treatment consists of the infiltration of the product in concrete points of muscles of the third superior of the face through a fine injection, its application is painless and with her it is able to block the nervous transmission that it contracts muscles when it is gestured. Generally, and since in each application very small doses of the product inoculate, this treatment usually does not have side effects.

The effects of this treatment are reversible and its approximate duration is of about five or six months, when the treated muscles return to recover their mobility of troops gradually. However, after several sessions its effect lasts time more and more because the body is it assimilating during more time and because the muscular relaxation of the successive treatments is progressively reducing the depth of the wrinkles.
This treatment especially is indicated for young patients, among 30-45 years, by the excellent results, since in addition to correcting the existing cutaneous furrows, has a preventive character when avoiding the formation of futures you fold face.
The treatment is very fast and the patient. The result is observed between the third and seventh day.
