Botox Application at Kentrum Clinic
The application of Botulinum Toxin is the most popular procedure worldwide to eliminate wrinkles and facial lines. It consists of injecting a thin needle containing Botulinum Toxin into the muscles where the patient wants to eliminate facial lines. This toxin acts to temporarily paralyze the muscles, allowing them to relax and soften. Botox is also used to reduce wide jaws, excessive sweating of hands and armpits, among others conditions. At Kentrum you can trust in the expert hands of our doctors, who administer this treatment with great care, achieving a painless, fast, and effective procedures.

Botox has been used for many years to eliminate lines and wrinkles, by temporarily paralyzing the muscle into which it is injected, which causes it to soften its actions. Botox can also be used to reduce a thick jawline, to reduce excessive sweating from underarms or hands, to tighten loose skin in the neck muscles, and other muscle related issues.
A Botox treatment can last from 3 to 6 months, depending on its application and of course, the patient.

A Botox treatment typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Results from a Botox treatment typically develop 14 days post treatment. In some rare cases, results can onset as soon as 5 days post treatment.
Generally negative side effects from Botox are as low as 1 to 3% of cases. In 3% of cases, eyelid drooping was reported following treatment of eyebrow lines. In 1% of cases, eyelid edema (accumulation of fluid) was noted in treatment of crow’s feet (around the eyes). In 2% of cases, headache was reported following treatment of Botox to forehead lines. While rare, some bruising and acne at the injection site are main side effects of Botox treatment.
Because Botox typically takes up to 2 weeks for full effect, it is recommended to treat at least 2 weeks prior to your special event. This will allow results to develop as well as allow time for healing should any bruising or acne at the treated site be noted. Travel post treatment is completely safe. Massages, facials, yoga, workouts and parties/drinking should be skipped on the same day of your Botox treatment.
