How does this treatment work?

1.

Consultation with doctor

1.

Consultation with doctor

During the consultation with the cosmetic doctor, extensive time is taken to discuss everything. The cosmetic doctor will look at your shoulders/neck and discuss which Botulinum toxin is most suitable. You can also ask all your questions and express your wishes. The doctor will tell you how the treatment will proceed and what you can expect from the final result. Good explanations will be given the aftercare, any risks and the end result you can expect. Would you like to undergo the treatment? Then everything will be noted in your file and you will sign the treatment agreement together with the cosmetic doctor. Pictures are taken for your file, which can be compared with the final result.

Treatment

The Botulinum toxin will be injected into the neck/shoulders using a very narrow needle. Most Botulinum toxin treatments are done without anaesthesia. Do you find this an unpleasant feeling? Then a numbing cream can be used in consultation with the doctor. To combat swelling, the skin will be cooled with an ice pack after the treatment.

Aftercare

Aftercare

After treatment, you can go home immediately. Sometimes the skin will still be a little red and small bruises will appear. This will go away by itself and is not serious. You are advised to avoid sports and alcohol for at least the first 24 hours. Do not bring the skin into contact with extreme heat (tanning bed, sauna).

Why a Traptox treatment?

Trapezius Muscle Relaxation: The trapezius muscle, located at the top of your back and neck, can often become tense due to stress, poor posture and daily activities. Our Botulinum Toxin Treatment focuses on targeted relaxation of this muscle, reducing the tension and allowing you to experience relief. Its benefit is also that muscle looks slimmer due to the relaxation, giving you slimmer shoulders.

How does a Traptox treatment work?

Our experienced doctors will first look at your needs with you and examine which muscles are causing tension. A personalised treatment plan will then be drawn up to meet your specific goals.

The treatment itself involves careful injections of botulinum toxin into the tense parts of the trapezius muscle. This helps the muscle relax and reduce excess tension. You can expect a significant improvement in your shoulder comfort and mobility.

Benefits of Traptox treatment

- Improved Shoulder Comfort: After the treatment, you will notice that your shoulders feel smoother and more comfortable. You will experience less tension in the neck muscles.

- Rejuvenated Appearance: The reduction of muscle mass in the trapezius area can make your shoulders look slimmer and more youthful.

- Less Headaches and Migraines: Many of our clients report a marked reduction in headaches and migraine attacks after treatment

Is it dangerous?

Although it is a very popular treatment, there are fears among some that it is a harmful substance with high risks of permanent damage. However, numerous, clinical studies have been done that prove time and again that this injectable is considered very safe, with minimal risks and side effects.

Nevertheless, with any injectable treatment, it is important to find a qualified doctor with specialist and proven experience. This is because if injections are not done competently, they can inadvertently spread into other areas which can lead to muscle relaxation in the wrong place.

At the other extreme, too much or too often is injected, which can lead to a frozen look giving.

Fortunately, in both cases, the results are never permanent and will gradually disappear in three to four months.

What should and shouldn't you do immediately after treatment?

Try not to lie down for the first 90 minutes. This is because there is then a small risk of spreading. However, this hardly ever occurs. After an hour and a half, the injectable is bound to the muscle and lying down can no longer do any harm.

Do not exercise for 24 hours: exercise increases blood circulation in the body, including the face, causing your face to blush and turn red when you exercise. This increased circulation is great for your skin, but it increases the chances that (part of) the injectable will leave the area via sweat before it is fully absorbed into the neuromuscular junction.

Four hours of no pressure on the areas treated: this includes wearing tight hats or caps or ice packs that press on the skin. Again, we run the risk of the injectable spreading and working in an area where we don't want it to. You can simply wash your face that same evening, but we recommend waiting a day with harsh exfoliating products

When will you see results and how long will they stay visible?

Because the injectable has to bind to receptors to relax muscles, the effects are not immediately noticeable.

Results start working as early as day two or three, but it can take 10 to 14 days for the muscle to fully relax.

Fine lines and wrinkles continue to improve when the muscles are in a relaxed state and the wrinkles cannot form. This continues to improve as you repeat the injectable.

That said, every person is different. Since your body is always making new receptors and neurotransmitters, the person will differ exactly how long the relaxing effect lasts. On average, we see that the effects of treatment last between 3 and 4 months.
