Anti-Aging Treatment with Botulinum Toxin

In Dermo-cosmetics, treatment with Botulinum Toxin is one of the most commonly used techniques of facial rejuvenation, which works by softening expression lines in the face.

Differing from wrinkles caused by sun exposure, expression lines in the face have their origin in muscular contraction, a voluntary or involuntary reflex of the way we convey feelings. Botulinum toxin is used in dermo-cosmetics treatments to soften the hyperfunctional wrinkles in the face.

Botulinum Toxin is an injectable neuromodulator derived from neurotoxins produced by Clostridium Botulinum, a bacterium. When injected in the muscles, it blocks the nerve activity, smoothing the appearance of hyper-functional lines. Through the inhibition of neurotransmission between the peripheral nerve endings and muscle fibres, Botulinum Toxin weakens or paralyzes skeletal muscle. When applied properly by a medical specialist, injection with Botulinum Toxin is a safe method to improve the appearance of wrinkles, as it fills the muscles that became contracted.

The effects last for a few months, when the skin comes back to its original state. Reapplication is then needed so that results can endure across time.

The application of Botulinium Toxin and other aesthetic treatments should be done in certified facilities in which the patient can have total confidence, always supervised and followed by qualified medical specialists. By partnering with the top private facilities in Portugal, Medical Port ensures to its customers access to the best medical care.

Hospital Lusíadas Lisboa and Hospital Lusíadas Porto are two of the most modern health care providers in Portugal, with accreditation by Joint Commission International plus an experienced Dermo-cosmetics Team. This way we make sure your treatment benefits from the best professionals in the field, an adequate medical follow-up and appropriate facilities, facts that contribute decisively to successful results.
