When you look in the mirror, do you happen to see deep lines between your eyebrows and around your eyes? If the answer is ‘yes’, ‘Botox’ might be the ideal treatment for you.

Wrinkles and thin lines start to appear on your face due to gravity, aging, hectic lifestyle, and your genetic heritage. Moreover, these lines can be really disturbing sometimes.

Fortunately, today, Botulinum Toxin Botox Treatment, a process with an injection, is carried out by dermatologists in order to decrease these lines and for anti-aging treatment.

What is Botox?

Botox is a substance obtained from a bacteria, ‘clostridium botulinum’. Once injected into the muscle, Botulinum Toxin, decreasing the muscular movement, helps to reduce mimics. As such, it minimizes the wrinkles caused by the mimics. Consequently, unwanted facial wrinkles are smoothened and a fresh look can be obtained in the injection area.

The cosmetic form of Botulinum Toxin –Botox in other words- has been a popular injection temporarily decreasing or totally eliminating the thin lines and wrinkles on face. It is most commonly used for the treatment of the crow’s feet between the eyebrows, on the frontal zone, and around the eyes. It can also be used to treat the deep lines on neck, the thin lines on masseter and around the lips, as well as to alleviate the effects of migraine and perspiration. Its impact lasts about 4-6 months or even more.

How long does the process take?

Botox application takes about 10 minutes. It is just that -prior to the application- you need to be exmined so that the area of application and the amount of injection can be determined. In other words, it is a quite simple process. You can drop by and comfortably get your Botox even during the afternoon break.

What happens during the process?

Proper amount of Botulinum Toxin is injected into the required area.

Does the process hurt?

Botox is carried out using an injection. Nonetheless, since the injectors are rather thin, they do not cause any pain, but merely a feeling like a fly bite.

Can I resume my routine from where I leave?

You absolutely can get back to your routine right after Botox without any constraints. We just recommend you avoid from bending your head down for 3-4 hours after the application.

When does Botox show its effect?

The effect of Botox becomes apparent following the 3rd day. This rather quick impact is just one of the ample reasons we love Botox.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

You can enjoy your Botox for 4-6 months after the application date.

Is Botox safe?

Relax, Botox is a quite safe anti-aging treatment method. It has been approved by one of the most respected health organizations of the world, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the USA.

Where should I get my Botox?

You must get this treatment from a Dermatologist with a diploma and professional experience. The Botolinum Toxin injections carried out in a ‘non-medical environment’ are extremely dangerous.

Does my facial expression change with the treatment? 

A Botox application performed by a Dermatologist does not ruin the natural look of the patient. Dermatologists want their patients to look natural. They inject just enough to relax the targeted muscles without affecting the other muscles, which, in return, helps the patients protect their natural facial expression.

Any loss of feeling? 

Absolutely no. This treatment does not affect your senses.

When should I get my following Botox treatment? 

You can repeat the process when your lines and wrinkles begin to reappear. This is more or less after 4-6 months following the process. Likewise, for the perspiration treatment, you can repeat the application after 6 months.

What should I evade from following the application?

In order to prevent the injected substance from spreading into unwanted areas:

  • Do not rub or massage the area of injection.
  • If you are to make up, try not to apply any pressure or rub.
  • Wait for a minimum of 2 hours before undergoing intensive physical activity.

Does Botox have any side effects?

There is no known side effects. Yet, those with highly sensitive skin might develop very little temporary bruise.

How old is Botox treatment?

Medical worl has been performing Botox treatment for the last 20 years. Botox, treatment for age-related effects, is safely prefered by millions of patients every year.

What is the youngest age to get Botox?

In the old times, Botox used to be demanded over the age of 35, when the lines become apparent. Nowadays, though, there are ample patients at their 20’s getting Botox as a ‘preventive treatment’.

Is combined treatment possible?

Your Dermatologist is to tell you whether an additional treatment is better for you. For instance, Botox treatment accompanied by filler allows us to get better results.

In case you decide on Botox treatment, please remember to give the following information to you Dermatologist:

  • Your current medication. 
  • Your vitamins and minerals. 
  • If pregnant or will be pregnant (There is no approved data whether Botulinum Toxin treatment is harmful to fetus or not.)
  • All of the operations and cosmetic treatments you have undergone so far. 

Bottom line is that Botulinum Toxin treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. Please make an appointment at our Clinic to see Dermatologist Ersin Aydin to safely decide if this treatment is right for you.
