Botulinum toxin is a protein derived from Clostridium botulinum, found in the natural environment, where it remains inactive and non-toxic. Botulinum toxin is marketed in various forms such as Botox, Vistabel, Dysport and Bocouture.
It is widely known for its ability to eliminate the wrinkles of both the forehead and those of the periphery of the eye.
With multiple injections on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, we paralyze the muscles. Since the muscle is paralyzed, it can’t move and therefore no wrinkles are created. The injections are done selectively so that the face can have natural movement.
Like all drugs, botulinum toxin has its complications. The above complications are rare, but it is necessary to report them so the patient is aware of everything.
Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.
