Dr. med. Sanda Perić Šušak, in a trip organized by the Croatian representative of Allergan Maya Tayfur Mali, visited Allergan, an American pharmaceutical company in Westport, Ireland, producing the most powerful anti-age preparation BOTOX.
It is a fascinating technological process of production in extremely demanding, controlled and sterile conditions, where half a gram of concentrated active substance botulinum toxin produces 9,000,000 ready-to-use preparations.
To recall, BOTOX is Botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein that produces bacteria Bacterium clostridium.
Local injection of botox into the muscle stops the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for initiating muscle contraction.
It has wide application in hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) treatments and dynamic forehead and eye wrinkles straightening. There is also the use of “Baby Botox” which can be used at an early age as a preventative for the development of wrinkles.
The treatment is short and painless. It is possible to repeat an unlimited number of treatments, there is no danger to the patient’s health. In repeated treatments, the effect is more persistent.
