What is Botox?


Botox is a neurotoxin that is commonly used to treat the formation of wrinkles, particularly on the frown and forehead regions. It is actually the purified version of the botulinum toxin type A, which is a protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botox is an injectable, prescription-only medication, that works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. This causes the muscles to relax, resulting in a smoother and firmer appearance of the skin. Botox is commonly used for cosmetic purposes, but it can also be used to treat a range of medical conditions such as migraines, excessive sweating, and muscular disorders.

Despite its benefits, Botox should only be administered by a trained medical professional as its misapplication may cause serious harm. That is the reason why at PURÄ we have created a team of specialists to guarantee safe and reliable aesthetic treatments.


Who is a Good Candidate for Botox Málaga?


Anyone with noticeable brow or forehead lines, or even with low self-esteem due to ageing signs, might be a perfect candidate for Botox. Nowadays, this filler is used frequently by men and women of all ages. Nevertheless, is not recommended for people under 18 years of age.

Additionally, it has been approved to help treat patients with excessive sweating, migraines, overactive bladders, and gummy smile.

Finally, Botox is the ideal aesthetic treatment for you if you:

  • Want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles with non-invasive procedures
  • Want a rapid and painless treatment with fast and natural-looking results
  • Don’t mind taking a gradual and repetitive procedure every couple of months

If you are uncertain you are the best candidate, you can always book a free consultation with our specialists to determine if Botox is the right treatment for you.


How Long Does Botox Work?


It is expected the results to last between 4 to 6 months, although they depend on each patient. After a month and a half (approximately) you may begin to notice a slow recovery of contractility in the treated areas. This does not mean that the effect of the treatment has been lost, but that the transmission of the nerve to the muscle is regenerating. After 6 months, the process will be complete. That it is why is recommended to have twice-a-year sessions.

Even though these are the most typical periods, the duration can be altered depending on the lifestyle or age of each patient. 


How Soon Will I See The Results?


The effects on the treated area begin to be seen gradually, after a few days after the application. In general, the effect becomes noticeable after 4 or 5 days, reaching its maximum 12-15 days after treatment.

In the first instance, dermal fillers and Botox may cause some facial stiffness in the hours after the procedure. This effect is normal and will disappear over the days. Soon, the expressions on your face will be completely natural again, only without the presence of wrinkles.

It is important to make some clarifications. The amount of time it takes for results to be visible depends on numerous factors, which vary from person to person:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Muscle mass
  • The elasticity of the skin
  • The type of Botox used in the injection
  • The volume of the filler


How Long Does Botox Session Take?


After your free consultation at our PURÄ Clinic, and once you’ve decided that a facial filler is a right choice for you, you can conveniently book your first treatment session into any spare time or work break, as Botox typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes to perform. This type of aesthetic treatment is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require anaesthesia.
