Botox (Botulinum Toxin) Applications
Botox is a kind of toxin used in the treatment of facial wrinkles and excessive sweating obtained from the bacteria called "Clostridium Botulinum". Botox must be done in experienced hands.
Movable wrinkles in the area around the eyebrows, forehead and around the eyes can be controlled. Another application of botox is to reduce the appearance of the gum in people who appear to have gums when they smile (this is called gummy smile).
In patients with teeth grinding and excessive clenching discomfort (bruxism), masseter botox can be applied to reduce the contraction of the muscles. In this way, both the squeezing of the person's teeth and related tension headaches are reduced.
At the same time, these people have angular face contours and an image called "Square Face" has been formed. With botox, a more oval face is obtained in these people. This is called "Korean Beauty" because Asian women usually have an angled face and prefer a slightly more oval face.
Except those; downward contraction can be blocked by applying botox in the neck area. Thus, the facial muscles pull the neck upwards, a long and stretched neck image is obtained. This is called "Cleopatra neck".
In addition, botox can be used in sweating treatments. It is possible to benefit from botox in armpit, palms and soles which can be applied after a mild sedation in the operating room. The effect will last at least one year in a single session. In the meantime, the underarm botox also benefits the relaxations in this region.
The Botox process is completed in as little as 10-15 minutes. It starts to show the effect of botox approximately 48 hours after the application. It usually takes 10 days to get the final shape.
Although upper face and neck applications vary depending on the activity of the botoxed muscle, it is generally effective between 3-6 months. It is possible to say the same for Gummy smile and masseter. It is effective in sweating treatments between 8 and 16 months.
It can be made to anyone over 18 years old who needs it. However, the application dose of each age group is different. The rate of botox applied to the 45-50 age group is not the same as that of the 18-20 age group. In addition, the amount of application varies according to the person.
