Botulinum Toxin Injection application is a neurotoxin obtained from bacteria called “clostridium botulinum”. Clostridium botulinum inhibits the release of substances that provide conduction in nerve endings. With the decrease of the conduction, it allows the functions of the organ to which the nerve reaches to decrease or to disappear completely. Botulinum toxin is an effective method in the area where it is injected. It is also used in many medical fields, especially in aesthetics. It is frequently preferred in the treatment of migraine and sweating, as well as in the mixed treatment caused by advancing age, genetic factors or excessive use of mimics.
In Which Fields Is It Used?
People who are treated with botulinum toxin injection, which is preferred in the treatment of wrinkles, have a younger, more energetic appearance with a taut skin with no wrinkle. It is an effective and fast method preferred in removing wrinkles in the crow’s feet area around the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead, and vertical lines that appear as a result of the muscle working effectively between the eyebrows in most of our female and male patients.
It is possible to shape the face by applying Botulinum Toxin injection to the areas which the patient is uncomfortable. It is applied with techniques such as raising the eyebrows from the tail part and lowering the height in the middle of the eyebrows.
How is it applied?
The patient’s expectations are listened to and complaints are listened to. According to the complaints, the region to be applied is determined. Botulinum Toxin Injection application is carried out in a clinical environment without the need for an operating room environment. Thanks to the creams with a numbing effect applied to the area to be applied before the procedure, it is painless. The application time is approximately 5 minutes. Any intervention on the application area should be avoided for 24 hours after the procedure.
