What is botulinum therapy?

Botox® is a drug manufactured by Allergan (USA). The active ingredient of Botox is purified and weakened botulinum toxin.

How does Botox work?

Traditionally, Botox is injected intramuscularly – into the facial muscles, where it temporarily blocks their susceptibility to nerve impulses. Due to this blockade, the muscle or part of it relaxes, stops contracting and the wrinkles formed by it are smoothed out.

The art of the doctor is not to completely immobilize Botox with the muscles responsible for the appearance of wrinkles, but only to remove their increased tone without violating the natural facial expressions.

    About the procedure

    15-20 minutes

    Recommended Course:

    A single insertion of the drug


    1 time in 6-12 months

    The effect:

    2-7 days after the procedure


    Horizontal wrinkles and eyebrow expression wrinkles are smoothed in the forehead.
    In the region of the upper eyelids, the effects of weak and moderate ptosis are eliminated.
    Nasolabial folds become less pronounced
    Increased sweating in the areas of application of the drug is blocked: palms, feet, armpits
    In the neck area, wrinkles on the back of the nose, in the lower eyelid and lips are smoothed out
    Mimic wrinkles around the eyes disappear
    Eyebrows acquire a more regular shape and position, the corners of the lips are lifted and, in general, some forms of facial asymmetry are corrected

    How is it done?

    • Under the influence of botulinum toxin, neuromuscular connections are temporarily blocked. Neither muscle nor nerve fibers is affected.
    • The action of Botox is reversible – after 4-6 months, blocked neuromuscular connections are restored.
    • A special technique for using Botox is mesobotox, when it is not injected intramuscularly, but into the skin.
    • At the consultation, the doctor assesses the severity and nature of the wrinkles, the role of the facial muscles in their formation, the condition of the tissues, determines the points of Botox administration, and its quantity.
    • As with a conventional injection, the skin is treated with a disinfectant. Then, using a syringe with a short and very thin (0.3 mm diameter) needle, Botox solution is injected into those muscles whose activity must be reduced. It takes 3-5 minutes.
    • At the end of the session, antiseptic treatment of the skin, its cooling is performed. Data on the batch number of the drug, its expiration date is entered on an outpatient card.
    • The soreness of Botox injections is low. Their implementation is possible without anesthesia, but most cosmetologists prefer to make local anesthesia with a special anesthetic cream. In the case of Botox injections without anesthesia, most of our patients compare the sensations from them with mosquito bites.

    How many units are needed?

    The amount of Botox in a vial is not measured in grams, but in units (units of action). The price of the service is determined based on the volume of the drug used. Since price is an important factor, you can estimate in advance how many Botox units you will need to correct wrinkles:

    • horizontal folds of the forehead: 4-15 units.
    • interbrow fold: 8-25 units.
    • Crow’s feet: 8-18 units.
    • Botox lifting of the corners of the mouth: 4-6 units.
    • wrinkles of the upper lip: 2-4 units.
