Botox has been gaining popularity for a number of years and is being used for more and more purposes. Men also increasingly find their way to a botox treatment. Unfortunately, many nonsense stories are still circulating on the internet, which prevents some people from undergoing treatment. Completely unjustified, because treatment with botox is simple and has a great effect. A condition is that treatment with botox is performed by a qualified physician.
About our treatment
At KNAP Institute, only specialized doctors work with amply demonstrable experience in the field of botox treatments. By using botox dosed during a treatment, the muscle is not completely ‘flat’ laid. This makes the result much more natural and your skin looks young and radiant. Botox is used for dynamic wrinkles caused by contraction of muscles. They are also called expression lines. With static wrinkles (which are always visible) fillers are often used. This filler fills the wrinkle from inside as it were.
What is and does Botox do?
Botox is an abbreviation of botulinum toxin; a protein that temporarily paralyzes the nerves that control muscles. Many people know botox only as an anti-wrinkle treatment, but botox can also be used for medical purposes. For aesthetic use, the best known areas are the frown wrinkle (between the eyebrows), forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. Other effective treatments are for example the dimple in the chin, the lines around the nose and drooping mouth corners. Because of a botox injection, the muscle temporarily contracts less vigorously.
As a result, wrinkles become visible or even disappear. However, the effect of botulinum toxin is not permanent, because after a period of three to four months the muscle recovers and the treatment will have to be repeated.
The cosmetic purposes of botox are known to many, but did you know that botulinum toxin is also used for all kinds of medical purposes? If you suffer from excessive sweating in the axillary area (axillary hyperhidrosis), persistent migraine or teeth grinding (bruxism), botox can certainly be a solution! Injections with botulinum toxin can significantly reduce the symptoms and improve the quality of your life.
