What is the Botox treatment?
Botox treatment, also known as botulinum toxin injection type A, is a process that uses a purified form of botulinum neurotoxin to temporarily alter the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines on the face. The neurotoxin works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which inhibits their activity.

- upper part of the face, that is: lion’s wrinkle, forehead, crow’s feet

Botox on the forehead when the effects
It is an ad hoc treatment and the effects are immediate.
How long do the effects of Botox last?
The effect of Botox lasts from 4 to 6 months, depending on the dose used and activity under the influence of Botox. After this time, the skin will begin to lose its firmness and elasticity again, and the effects of Botox will cease to be felt.
The duration of the effects can also be influenced by the amount of Botox administered. In the case of injection of a very small amount of the preparation, eg. 0.1 ml or 1 unit per area per session, the effects are usually subtle. If you inject more of the preparation, e.g. 1 ml or 10 units per area per session, the results are more visible and may last longer.
We can also support the action of Botox by using dietary supplements that help inhibit the signs of skin aging, moisturize the body from the inside and provide it with essential nutrients. Examples of supplements:

Ptosis – Heavy forehead after Botox
Injections of botulinum toxin, also known as Botox, can cause eyebrows or eyelids to droop. The neurotoxin can cause a feeling of heaviness and inability to move the muscles in this area. It is estimated that only 5 percent of patients suffer from this condition, but the number of severe cases seems to be increasing with the increase in demand for botulinum toxin and the flood of cheap offers for patients.
