Botox, renamed Vistabel®, is a wrinkle softening treatment formally approved for cosmetic use. Vistabel® (Botulinum toxin type A) injections remove facial lines and wrinkles, proven to reduce the visible signs of ageing in men and women.
Vistabel® injections are safe and quick and can be combined with other treatments such as Dermal Fillers and Chemical Peels leading to an even greater aesthetic result.
Vistabel® relaxes the facial muscles responsible for the creation of wrinkles. It is injected directly into the muscle; the complete effect appearing after approximately 5-7 days. Vistabel functions effectively on the wrinkles of the upper face: forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the eyes crow’s-feet’ and glabellar wrinkles. Vistabel® is extremely safe when used on the face.
There have been no reports of allergy cases of systemic reactions.
When the beneficial effects of the Vistabel® injection begin to diminish, usually after 4 months, the wrinkles slowly reappear but they are fewer and less pronounced.
The treatment can be repeated, and persistent maintenance can be obtained by two or three annual treatments.
Vistabel® may also be used to reduce Excessive Sweating caused by hyperhydrosis, a condition which affects the hands, armpits, chest and feet.
