Botulinum toxin application in Bogotá: What is botulinum toxin?
It is a substance injected into a specific area of a person’s body. Essentially, this substance blocks nerve signals to muscles, causing the muscle to contract less forcefully, relaxing it and resulting in the reduction and elimination of dynamic expression lines or wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin type A, which is used in dermatology and cosmetic medicine, is produced from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and is injected in controlled small quantities. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration of the United States) recommends not exceeding a total of 360 units over a 3-month period.
How is botulinum toxin applied?
Botulinum toxin is typically administered with a small-gauge needle, and the area can be pre-treated with a topical anesthetic to counter any discomfort.
Specifically for the procedure, botulinum toxin is diluted in saline solution and injected into the neuromuscular tissue.
