What is Botox
Botox is a toxin produced by the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. Application of type A botulinum (Botox) prevents muscle movements. Thus, lines and wrinkles on the skin over the muscle, whose movement decreases, decrease or disappear. The effect begins on the third day. It ensures that wrinkles and lines disappear or decrease within ten days. It also prevents the formation of new wrinkles if applied regularly every six months.

Why is Botox used?
Botox is most commonly used to reduce or eliminate expression lines on the forehead and around the eyes, which become evident with age.

How to Use Botox?
Botox application is an easy and reliable method. Botox injection is done by administering the medicine into the muscles or under the skin with tiny needles.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox affects the muscle tissue 1-2 cm around the point where it is applied. It creates a temporary state of weakness in the muscles. It weakens the movement of the muscles in the area where it is performed, not the entire muscle, and prevents the line caused by muscle contraction from deepening.

Does Botox Completely Eliminate Wrinkles?
Botox eliminates superficial wrinkles and lightens deep wrinkles. It prevents all wrinkles from deepening. If the wrinkle is too deep, it will lighten. In deep wrinkles, fillers should be used along with Botox.

How Long Does the Effect of Botox Last?
It usually has an effect duration of 4-6 months. Approximately 3 months after the application, the movement of strong muscles begins to return, and after 4 months the movement of weak muscles begins to return, and after 6 months the effect disappears completely. This duration of effect may vary from person to person and from drug to drug.

When the effect of Botox wears off, the treated area returns to its previous state. The effect lasts longer when Botox is applied to the same area 4-5 times regularly.

In Which Situations Is Botox Used?
Botox is used especially for crow’s feet lines around the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead and lines between the eyebrows that occur due to the movement of facial muscles. Botox is also used for neck lines, sweating in hands, feet and armpits, spastic diseases and migraine pain.

How Often Is Botox Done?
Botox is most commonly applied to the corners of the eyes, between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Apart from this, applications around the mouth and neck can also be performed.
