Botox is a medication that contains the toxin that is produced from bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. It shows its effect by preventing the muscles from working. This effect is temporary and does not yield permanent and long-lasting effects.
The areas of application are; eliminating the lines in the top-to-bottom area in the forehead, the line between the two eyebrows, around the eyes, eliminating the side of the eyebrows, nose and its surrounding area, wrinkles on the neck, perspiration in the armpits, perspiration in the palms, and perspiration in the soles of feet.
Botox is a drug, which may be used safely without side effects. The effects last for 6 months on average. The application is easy. Local anesthetic creams are applied to the area that will be treated, and the procedure is carried out without pain. The application time lasts 10-15 minutes. The effect is seen within 1 week. Normal daily activities are carried out after the application.
The most critical point in Botox applications is to obtain natural expressions as much as possible. For this reason, it is important to avoid the formation of exaggerated mimics that attract attention. In addition to this, it must be planned and the dose must be adjusted individually. It may cause “confused” expression in individuals when it is carried out with inexperienced hands by using standard doses and points. Before applying, it will be proper if you ask your doctor whether s/he has the authority to do this.
