Botox

Doctor Benadiba is in charge of teaching at the Faculty of Medicine in facial injection techniques (treatment of wrinkles) and training and demonstrations for doctors for toxin injection (Botox®) information on www.dutic.info

Botox® is a registered trademark owned by Allergan Inc.

Botox is a product made from the purified and attenuated form of botulinum toxin. There are other effective molecules such as Azzalure and Bocouture.

How does it work?

Botulinum toxin causes a decrease in muscle contraction by partial chemical blockage of the muscle, resulting in a decrease in partial and localized muscle contraction. When injected into a muscle, it prevents the muscle from contracting.

Botulinum toxin and its use

 

UPPER FACE WRINKLES

The skin has three mechanical characteristics: strength, elasticity (ability to return to normal) and suppleness (ability to stretch).

As we age, these characteristics change and the loss of elasticity of the skin is more marked.

The botulinum toxin will relax the muscles and reduce or make the wrinkle disappear depending on its importance.

The wrinkles that will be conventionally treated are:

  • Vertical wrinkles called “frown lines” (between the eyebrows),
  • horizontal forehead wrinkles,
  • wrinkles called “crow’s feet” (folds at the corners of the eyes).

 

 

KNOW THE AESTHETIC ANATOMY OF THE FACE

DURATION OF INTERVENTION: 10 – 15 min
REPETITION / DURABILITY: 4 – 6 months, the effects diminish and the muscular action reappears
FINAL RESULT: 10 days



NECK REJUVENATION

 

Plastymal cords can be relaxed with botox

The neck is important in supporting facial rejuvenation. Plastymal cords are common with age as the skin is thin.

These are thickened vertical folds that extend from the submandibular region to the parasternal region, thus widening the cervico-mental profile. They are due not to the contraction of the skin muscle of the neck but to the decrease in its muscle tone.

NEFERTITI LIFTING

Originally described by a Frenchman, the Nefertiti lift refers to the famous Egyptian queen archetypal female beauty with a perfect oval face.

The Principle: Decrease the contraction of this lateral bundle of the neck skin by botulinum toxin.

The contraction of the lateral bundle of the skin muscle pulls the sagging cheek tissue downwards. Over time, the resting tone increases, the lateral platysma shortens and no longer forms the cervico-mandibular support angle, which causes the submaxillary gland to descend. The oval of the face is therefore altered with the appearance of jowls.

 

 

 

SMOKING WRINKLES, “BAR CODE” WRINKLES

The botulinum toxin injection calms the action of the muscle of the mouth on the skin and relaxes wrinkles

The botulinum toxin can be used in the beautification of the lips either in the treatment of the peti-oral wrinkles or “bar code” or in the gummy smile. These indications are more delicate and require experience of the toxin before practicing them because the side effects can be very annoying for the patient (drooling, asymmetry, speech impediment…).

 

The “bar code” wrinkles:

They are due to the loss of hydration and the thinning of the lip. In smokers, these wrinkles are more frequent by the contraction of the orbicularis muscle of the lips “smoker’s wrinkles”.

 Gingival smile :

The gingival smile or “Gummy smile” is defined as the exposure of more than 3mm of the gum during the smile giving an unsightly image of the smile (Fernandel’s smile). It is found in 10% of the population under 30 years old and 2 times more in women. The causes can be bone, dental, or muscle. The toxin can act on the hypercontractibility of the perioral muscles allowing the lip to descend temporarily on the upper gensiva.

 

EXCESSIVE SWEATING

The treatment consists of first delimiting the sweating zone and then injecting the botulinum toxin in small quantities at perfectly identified points. Then just a few injections that are not very painful and very well tolerated. We will also note an impact on the patient’s quality of life, which is often obvious.

Botox treatment for excessive sweating can also be applied to other areas of the body such as the hands, feet, back, etc.

 

DURATION OF INTERVENTION: 30 min
REHEARSAL / DURABILITY: 7 – 9 months
FINAL RESULT: 5-10 days to notice a decrease in sweating.

 

HAIR LOSS

Botulinum toxin injection

  • decreases the secretion of the sebaceous glands and decreases dandruff,
  • prevents alopecia, improving the quality of hair, implants and regrowth,
  • decreases the pressure of the vessels via the relaxation of the muscles and therefore induces an increase in oxygen at the frontal and coronal level of the scalp.
