Botox Injection

BOTOX

Half of my patients are “against botox”. They tell me that botox makes people face masks, distorts the expression, and is poison. Supposedly it’s a bit fashionable to be against botox. Sometimes it is impossible to change such prejudices.

I am a surgeon. I don’t use Botox very often. In fact, this drug can correct some areas that I can correct with surgery to the same extent in ten minutes, and believe me, it narrows my operation area and number. However, I will defend to the end “botox”, which has so many false prejudices and does not deserve such criticism. In my opinion, this is a highly controlled, robust, risk-free and simply perfect drug that can be an alternative to some surgeries.

BOTOX IN SUMMARY:

The main cause of wrinkles on the forehead and on the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet) is the movements of the muscle under the skin. Botox reduces the movements of these muscles by preventing them from receiving warnings at the end of three to six months. This also eliminates wrinkles. A Botox treated forehead looks smoother and wrinkle-free. The eyebrows move less and it becomes harder to frown. After the third month, this effect decreases and the muscles gradually return to their old movements in the sixth month.
The sweat glands in the place where Botox is made also work less. Botox can also be applied to people who have excessive sweating in their palms, feet and armpits, and these complaints can be reduced within a year.

WHERE BOTOX IS USED

  • The most common forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. With Botox, eyebrows can be lifted for a measure.
  • Very thin and superficial wrinkles (cigarette marks) on the upper lip.
  • Some people’s noses move when they laugh and talk. This movement can be prevented with Botox.
  • Against sweating, palms, feet, armpits.

How does Botox treat?

A small amount of botox is injected into your face with small needles. Thanks to these needles, it shows its effect by stopping the transmission in the middle of the borders and the organs reached by the borders. Botox relaxes the muscle by blocking the border impulses to these muscles for a certain period of time, and as a result, the skin tightens itself and wrinkles disappear.

Does Botox have side effects?

Due to the fact that Botox is a toxin, in case of overdose, the eyelid problem called “ptosis” may occur and cause the patient to be uncomfortable for several weeks. Other side effects that can be seen are complaints such as headache, respiratory tract infections, cold syndrome and nausea.

Who is not treated with Botox?

The application with this drug is not applied to pregnant women. Generally, centers that apply Botox do not apply Botox to breastfeeding mothers.

How long should I have botox?

The effect of Botox on the human face is visible within a week, and its duration of action is 3-9 months, but it is 6 months on average. When people who are regularly treated with botox for 2 years continue in the same way, there may be a significant decrease in their muscles and a change in facial expression. For this reason, I recommend that applications be made at longer intervals after the 2nd year.
