Botulinum toxin injections

Dysport or Vistabel (Botox) is a product relaxing muscles. Its main active substance is botulinum toxin.

Small doses of this medicine work by blocking nerve impulse transmission between nerve and the muscle, and therefore the muscles at the injection area are "neutralized" and wrinkles disappear for the time being. Wrinkles are best blocked on the face (on the forehead, around the eyes and around the lips).

The procedure is simple and safe, if performed by a doctor who knows the anatomy of facial muscles. 8-15 injections are performed in different spots of the face. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes. For 1-2 hours, the areas of injections will have small papules, and slight redness. Medication will work within 24-72 hours, and will last for 4-6 months. Then the procedure should be repeated.

Dysport or Botox injections are used for successful treatment of palm and underarm sweating. In this clinical case medication is injected in the underarm, palm or feet skin, and the duration of their activity is 4-6 months.
