Botulinum Toxin (Botox®, Dysport®) Application

Botulinum toxin is an exotoxin of Clostridium Botulinum A, a bacterium. This toxin prevents the nerve endings from releasing the substances necessary for muscle contraction by the nerve. Thus, by reducing the contraction of the muscles in the applied area, it helps to remove wrinkles caused by facial expressions  . With aging, the strength of facial mimic muscles increases and these muscle contractions cause the skin to wrinkle both on the upper and lower face.

The toxin is injected intramuscularly and neuromuscular communication is reduced only in that area. The age of onset of application for prevention is usually around 30. But since permanent wrinkles can start structurally at an earlier age, the application can also be done at an earlier age. The drug is quite safe and can be safely administered for the rest of your life. Its effect is reversible and is completely excreted from the body. 

The main goal is to obtain a natural image as a result of the process. Never a dull facial expression. A rested and fresh appearance is obtained. Your angry, sad look is replaced by a rested and happy look.

Before Operation

The areas to be injected are determined, drawings can be made. Detailed medical history is taken, patient examination, the person's expectations, information about the procedure, and pre-procedure photography are done. Pregnancy and breastfeeding must be questioned. 

 

Process

It does not require any anesthesia. It is applied to the required areas according to the needs of the person by microinjection method. If sweating treatment is to be performed, local anesthesia can be applied because the hands and feet may be painful. The application time for wrinkles can be 5 minutes, and sweating treatment application   may take 10-15 minutes. Correct intramuscular administration is very important. 

Post Process

It is recommended not to wash the face for 1-2 hours after the application, not to apply make-up, not to massage, not to do movements such as bending and lying down. The person can return to his daily life immediately. Its effect starts in about 2 days  and the full effect is seen in about 7-10 days  . Since the effect is not fully seen in the first application, it requires approximately 7-10 days of control. When there is insufficient effect, additional dose application and/or correction of asymmetries is done. This operation is completely reversible.
