Botox Turkey

Contrary to popular belief, Botox is not a snake venom. In reality, it is a very beneficial medication. There has been a perception of it in society as such. However, when this medicine is prepared in a laboratory setting and administered in the right dosage and location in a controlled manner, amazing results can be attained.

What exactly does Botox do?

Botox, a brand name for a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, is used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. Here’s what it does:

  • Muscle Relaxation: Botox works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles where it is injected. This causes the muscles to relax, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the skin above.
  • Cosmetic Uses: In cosmetics, Botox is primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are lines that form from repeated facial expressions like frowning, smiling, or squinting. Common areas for Botox injections include the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows.
  • Medical Applications: Beyond cosmetics, Botox is also used to treat various medical conditions. It can help with chronic migraine, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), muscle disorders (such as spasticity), certain bladder disorders, and even chronic neck and back pain.
  • Temporary Effects: The effects of Botox are not permanent. They typically last for 3 to 6 months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles start to reappear and need to be treated again.
  • Procedure and Safety: Botox injections are minimally invasive and are usually done in a doctor’s office. The procedure is generally safe when performed by a qualified healthcare professional. However, there are potential side effects, like bruising, swelling at the injection site, and in rare cases, the toxin can spread to nearby muscles, causing problems like drooping eyelids.
  • Preventive Use: Some people use Botox as a preventive measure to keep wrinkles from forming or deepening.

Botox treatments should be individualized and performed by qualified professionals who can assess the appropriate dosage and injection sites for each person’s needs.

Who should do Botox?

Botox applications should be done by a qualified professional. A qualified aesthetic and plastic surgeon should definitely perform this procedure. Dermatologists can also do this work. The important thing here is that the person doing the job should be passionate about it; meaning, they should be doing it out of love and dedication. The results that can be obtained from people who have researched this field and have experience in it will be different from those of others.

How effective is Botox?

The duration of Botox effect is generally 8 months. This can show some variations. These variations are related to the body structure of the patient and therefore can show changes. It stops aging in the area it is applied to, but it never rejuvenates. It is important for our patients who want to have this procedure to know this.


Before After

Is Botox harmful?

Botox temporarily paralyzes the nerves in the area where it is applied. This is not medically harmful. Facial expressions may be lost due to the lack of muscle movement, but this disappears once the effects of the Botox wears off. There has been no harm to the body or skin as a result of Botox.

Is Botox for everyone?

Botox can be done on all patients with wrinkles and sagging. Age is not necessarily a factor here. Of course, older patients tend to have more of these symptoms, but there are also younger patients with genetically caused sagging or wrinkling on their face. Therefore, we cannot just say that it can only be applied to elderly patients.

Facial rejuvenation with botox

  • Botox is the most well-known non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation. Botox can be applied to any face, however, in some patients with facial wrinkles and deep furrows, botox must be supplemented with fillers or, if the furrows are too deep, surgical tightening must be performed.
  • Botox and fillers are often used in combination. However, as mentioned above, if the wrinkles and lines are very deep, face lifting surgery is preferred. Fillers and botox are like an inseparable duo, like ketchup and mayonnaise.
  • Therefore, these two treatments are commonly used together. This usage results in a visible rejuvenation. Of course, this is only temporary. However, some patients say that it is an advantage. I agree with them. That is, a person might not want to have the same face after a year. Maybe they will want to continue with surgery. This is why there is the freedom to always have different procedures done temporarily.
