Wrinkles that occur due to excessive use of facial expressions, genetic factors or advancing age can be removed in a very short time with the application of botox to areas such as the eye area, between the eyebrows, forehead and nose root. With the application made by professional people in appropriate doses, negative situations such as fear or surprise on the face are prevented and a youthful and vigorous appearance is provided to the person.
Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a toxin obtained from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It shows its effect by preventing the release of substances that provide conduction in the nerve endings, and by stopping the transmission between the nerves and the organs reached by the nerves. The cessation of nerve conduction ensures that the functions of the organ reached by the nerve are reduced or completely lost. It can be used for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes, to reduce facial wrinkles that occur with the movements of mimic muscles, to prevent their formation and to reduce sweating in areas with excessive sweating, and in the treatment of chronic migraine.
HOW IS BOTOX MADE?
Botox is administered as an injection and is not a painful procedure, a slight pain may be felt at the time of injection. It is injected into the mimic muscles when a decrease in the movements of the mimic muscles is desired, and into the skin when the complaint of sweating is desired to decrease.
The effect of Botox starts 3-4 days after the injection and fully settles in the first week and the duration of action is 4-6 months. When Botox loses its effect, the application can be repeated.
Botox has no serious side effects on health. After the application, a temporary swelling, bruising, and rarely a temporary drooping of the eyelid may occur.
Immediately after the operation, daily life can be continued with comfort. However, movements that require bending for a long time and working the facial muscles should be avoided. In addition, the head should be kept elevated for about four hours after the Botox injection, leaning forward should be avoided and not lying down. Approximately eight hours after the Botox injection, you can take a shower with lukewarm water and without causing any damage to the face, that is, without applying a pouch or pressure. Care should be taken to use cold water while washing the face.
