What is Botox?
Botox is a medication that works by temporarily stopping the electrical transmission between nerves and muscles or sweat glands. It is injected with tiny needles. The effect usually lasts between 4-6 months. It can be used for different purposes in different parts of the body.
Treatment of facial wrinkles with Botox
With the active facial mimic muscles, skin folds become visible over the years and facial lines appear. These are most seen on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and around the lips. When botox is applied to the mimic muscles, the functioning of these muscles is weakened and the wrinkling of the skin due to muscle movements is also reduced. The lines on the forehead and around the eyes, which give the person an older appearance than they are, and the lines between the eyebrows, which give an angry and frowning look, are reduced.
Over-sweating treatment with Botox
By using Botox, the transmission between sweat glands and nerves can be stopped and the functioning of sweat glands can be reduced. Over-sweating is a very important problem for some people, especially in social and business life. This situation can be prevented by applying Botox especially to the armpits and palms.
Clenching treatment with Botox (Masseter Botox)
Some people have unintentional clenching problems. This is an important problem affecting dental health. This problem can be eliminated with the botox procedure applied to the massetermuscles (jaw muscles). At the same time, with this method, the masseter muscles (jaw muscles) can be reduced, and the face can transform from a square-shaped to an oval-shaped.
How is Botox applied?
After the doctor's examination, the Botox procedure is done by determining the application areas and injecting the medication with small needles to the determined points in an average of 5 minutes. It starts to show its effect from the first days. The duration of the effect is 4-6 months on average, but with repeated regular applications, this duration of effect increases in the future. There may be a short-term redness in the application area, but this redness will go away on its own during the day.
