Its effect becomes apparent after the first 48 hours to the first 7-10 days, while its duration is about 4-6 months, when it can be repeated. It is aimed at women and men whose expression wrinkles are starting to appear more intensely, as well as for the renewal of their face. It should always be performed by specialized doctors to avoid mistakes that can cause deterioration of the image of the face (drooping upper eyelid, ‘frozen’ face, drooping corner of the mouth, etc.).
