What is Botox (Botulinum Toxin)?

It's a medical protein formed by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and referred to as the abbreviation of the words "botulinum toxin". It's been used in the treatment of various diseases for many years, and in recent years, it's been safely and successfully applied for aesthetic purposes. Since it is not a surgical procedure, it's a commonly preferred convenient and safe method.

What are its areas of use?

This treatment method, which has no side effects and does not require surgical intervention, can be safely applied in removal of wrinkles, eyebrow lift, prevention of excessive sweating and treatment of migraine.

Treatment of wrinkles with botox

This safe non-surgical treatment method, which is applied for removal of deep, moderate or fine lines, is particularly preferred for removal of wrinkles in the eye contour, lines between-eyebrows and forehead lines and vertical lines in upper and lower lips. If it's applied in accordance with one's own mimic features, it provides a visible improvement in lines and delivers a refreshed natural expression to the face.

How does Botox work?

Botox is applied to relax and soften wrinkles by loosening the superficial muscles attached to the skin. Muscle relaxation prevents formation of more wrinkles and results in a fresher appearance. As it is repeated, it has a longer lasting effect and slows down formation of wrinkles in the skin.

Who can have this procedure?

Anyone can have this procedure, except pregnant and breastfeeding women and patients with muscle problems. Although it's an extremely reliable method, depending on your skin type, you may have tiny temporary red spots or mild headache after the procedure.

How is it performed?

A fine tip syringe is used to apply it to the areas requiring treatment. The dose to be administered is determined by the practitioner in line with the needs of the person.

Things to avoid after the application

Do not lie face down, excessively bend your head for at least 3 hours after the application and do not apply make-up in the first 3 hours. You can have a bath on the same day but avoid being in high-temperature environments such as sauna, Turkish bath, etc.

When does its effect become visible?

The Botox effect becomes visible about 3-5 days after the application. It may take a maximum of 15 days for the full effect to form.

How long does the Botox effect last?

Its effect lasts for 4-6 months. Regularly repeated applications increase the degree and duration of its effect.

Is it a permanent method?

Unlike surgery, since it's not a method with permanent effect, it should be determined whether it needs to be repeated acoordign to the person's need. Depending on the degree of mimic use and skin type characteristics, the application may need to be repeated at regular intervals.

How often is it repeated?

Although it varies according to need, it is usually repeated every 4 to 6 months, which makes the effect of the application more permanent. The biggest advantage of its regular application is that it prevents the muscle contraction in the application area and trains the area not to make a mimic. Thus, the frequency of application decreases over time.

Is it a painful procedure?

Any aches and pains are prevented by using cold compression or anesthetic cream before and after the application. It's applied using very fine tip injectors.

Does it have any side effects or does it cause any harm?
