Botox

One of the main effects of aging on the skin is deterioration in the collagen structure and connective tissue of the skin. As a result of the use of mimic muscles, wrinkles and lines in the upper structure of the skin become evident. In addition to aging, sun rays, fatigue, unhealthy diet, inadequate skin care, alcohol and smoking can also cause wrinkles and lines on the face. Thanks to the botox procedure, which stands out with its therapeutic and protective properties, the lines that have appeared on the face over the years can be removed, as well as the lines caused by repetitive muscle movements but not yet settled can be corrected without allowing them to deepen.

What is Botox?

The medical aesthetic procedure performed by injection of Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin isolated and purified from Clostridium Botulinum bacteria, is called botox. Botox injection is used in the treatment of moderate and severe lines and wrinkles that appear on the face over time, especially in the middle of the eyebrows, forehead and lip edges.

Botox injection undertakes the task of temporarily stopping the electrical conduction between the nerves in the area and the muscles to which the nerves are connected. When the nerve conduction is interrupted, the function of the muscles connected to the nerve is reduced or lost. Since Botox is a procedure whose effect is limited to the area where it is injected, it does not cause an effect on systemic muscles.

Since Botox injection is a treatment planned specifically for the person, there is no loss in the mimic movements, facial expression and naturalness of the person.

Who is Botox Suitable for?

Botox injection can basically be applied to men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 who do not have any obstacles to the application. It can be applied to people who have lines and wrinkles in the facial area for various reasons, who look older, tired and sad due to wrinkles around the forehead and eyes and who want to improve this appearance. In this way, existing wrinkles can be reduced and new wrinkles can be prevented. Botox application can be performed simultaneously with the filling procedure in selected patients.

How is Botox Applied?

Before starting Botox application, the area to be treated is evaluated individually. Injection points and the dose to be used are determined. Local anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to be injected with Botox and it is expected to take effect.

When the desired numbing effect is achieved, the area is hygienically cleaned. Botox is injected into the muscles at predetermined points through fine-tipped needles and the application is completed within 15 to 20 minutes.

After Botox injection, the effect usually occurs 48 to 72 hours after the application. It takes 7 to 10 days to reach maximum effect. Although the effect of Botox injection lasts an average of 4 to 6 months, this period may vary depending on the characteristics of the area to be treated, the injected dose and the structural characteristics of the patient. As Botox injection is repeated regularly, the duration of effect is prolonged. As a result of regular applications, it is sufficient to repeat the botox injection at longer intervals.

Recovery Process After Botox

Botox is a fast, comfortable and practical application that does not require a recovery period. Since it is not a surgical procedure, there is no interruption in the daily life of the patient. In the first 6 hours after the injection, the injection area should not be rubbed and water should not be contacted to the area. Care should be taken not to tilt the head forward, not to massage the application area, not to lie face down, and not to be in hot environments such as saunas and Turkish baths.

It is important for the success of the application that make-up should not be applied, alcohol should not be used and excessive exercise should be avoided for 24 hours following Botox injection.

There may be slight redness and edema in the area where Botox injection is performed. Direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided until these side effects improve. It should not be neglected to apply sun cream with high protection factor to the face when going out for a certain period of time. During the early recovery period, swimming in the pool and sea should be avoided to prevent a possible risk of infection.
