VENUS CENTER a Medical-Aesthetic and Laser application center is located in the beautiful area of Tirana. Our physicians are considered the top experts in their field, and in fact we are one of the few practices where our MDs actually perform all Botox injections themselves, rather than having a practicioner staff. Botox® Cosmetic is a very common and well-studied wrinkle treatment that has been proven to correct moderate to severe frown lines in problem areas of the face.
Botox Treatment Areas:
- Forehead creases
- Crow's feet
- Neck bands
- Bunny lines
- Chin dimples
- Gummy smile
- Eyebrow lift
- Masseter muscle
These areas eventually begin to wrinkle from years of smiling, frowning, squinting and excessive muscle movement. By providing patients at Venus Center with neuromodulators, we are able to relax the underlying muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
What To Expect During A Botox Injection In Venus Center
It takes just a few minutes to inject this neuromodulator directly into the area where results are desired. Our wrinkle treatment specialists will use a fine needle to inject the appropriate amount of Botox, which varies depending on each patient's specific needs. Our doctors' goal is to produce natural looking results with Botox injections, relaxing the muscles just enough to reduce wrinkles without compromising normal facial expressions. A Botox wrinkle treatment is generally pain free, but some patients experience a slight tingling sensation or soreness in the injected area for a brief period of time. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately after the injections.
How Does It Work?
Botox injections work by blocking nerve impulses that are responsible for the contraction of muscles. When the muscles aren’t able to contract the area appears relaxed and softer, giving a wrinkle free, more youthful appearance. The only muscles affected are the ones in the immediate treatment area where the wrinkle treatment is injected, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.

How Long Do the Results Last?
Patients experience results within 2 to 7 days, and the effects of Botox injections can last between 3-6 months. Additional wrinkle treatments can be repeated as the effects wear off.
Are Wrinkle Treatment Injections Safe?
When the word “Botox” is spoken, it’s important to understand that there are 2 different versions of botulinum toxin – one for therapeutic medical purposes and one for cosmetic purposes. The difference between the two is dosage. Botulinum Toxin can be used in higher doses to treat muscle spams in large muscles, most commonly used as a treatment for cerebral palsy. It’s in this higher doses where the reports of complications have been reported. OnabotulinumtoxinA is the branded version of a very low dose of the substance used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botox has an excellent safety record and has been referred to as “the aspirine of the 21st century.” It is a very well studied and safe product when used for cosmetic purposes.
