Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Operations
Botox is the most widely used medical cosmetic application in the world for wrinkle treatment. It has become widespread after obtaining FDA approval for the removal of wrinkles around the eye area (goose’s feet), forehead and brow areas in 2002
How To, How Does It Work, What Is Botox?
Botox is an injection procedure. The area to be treated is anesthetized with local anesthesia cream 20 minutes before the procedure. After cleaning the areas where the application will be made, the formula is injected into the muscle with fine-tipped needles in small doses. The entire process takes about 10-15 minutes. Botox disrupts the transmission between the nerve and the muscle, that is, it prevents the transmission of the nerve’s order. Thus, the muscle temporarily ceases to contract and the mimic lines caused by the contraction are alleviated. It starts to show its effect within 4-7 days after the procedure and it gets its final form within 10-15 days and provides the lightening of the lines and prevents the formation of new wrinkles. Botox (type A botulinum injection), which temporarily inhibits muscle movements, is particularly effective in relieving the appearance of forehead wrinkles, lines around the eyes, lines in the middle of the eyebrows, and vertical muscles in the neck.
Does Botox Have Side Effects?
Botox injections have been used for both therapeutic and cosmetic purposes for many years. Botox has no side effects. When administered for therapeutic purposes, the patient needs to be given higher doses, and even in such cases no side effects have been observed.
How long does the effect last and for whom?
The effect of botox injections lasts for an average of 4-6 months, although it varies from person to person and the amount of dose injected into the area to be administered. When the effect of botox has passed, the treated area becomes old. It was observed that the effects of the injection lasted longer when five or six sessions of botox were applied to the same area regularly. Be sure to support the positive effects of treatment with the products your doctor recommends. Anyone who complains about lines and wrinkles due to mimics without any age limit can benefit from botox injections. When botox injection is initiated after lines or wrinkles are firmly inserted and deepened, treatment should be supported by filler injections. The result is more successful if the lines are made before deepening.
