It is emphasized that botox application, which is used in wrinkles, migraine and excessive sweating treatments, is more beneficial in the thirties or late twenties. In this article, you will find curious topics about botox.
Actually, the active ingredient of Botox is the poison produced by a bacterium, but modern medicine has purified, controlled and made this poison harmless. It works by temporarily weakening the muscles. Botox was first used in medicine in the treatment of strabismus. Its benefits in the field of cosmetics have been discovered much later. In addition to wrinkle treatment, Botox is used in many areas such as migraine treatment, treatment of unwanted contractions and tics in the face, treatment of excessive sweating, treatment of excessive saliva production, and treatment of some chronic pain syndromes.
It does not show toxic effects in the doses currently used. Fatal doses are reached after 28 bottles of botox injections on the same day.
No, you cannot rejuvenate with botox. Botox reduces the wrinkles caused by the repetitive work of your facial muscles. Thus, it provides a younger and more dynamic appearance. Other misconceptions about botox are that botox is used in face lift, swelling the lips or creating tension on the face.
Botox is a simple, fast and safe application that can be applied in office conditions (does not require a sterile environment and special equipment). It is an application that takes an average of 5-10 minutes, does not cause pain because a very thin needle is used and does not require anesthesia. Optionally, anti-sensation creams or ice application to be applied to your skin before botox will further reduce the very mild pain sensation.
The effect of botox begins within 3-4 days, and its maximum effectiveness is felt in the 4th to 8th weeks. Although the effectiveness period of botox is 4-6 months, the effect can be extended up to 9 months in muscle groups that are not very active and in repeated botox injections.
It is also important to know that the effectiveness of botox differs from person to person. The size and thickness of the muscles on everyone's face are different, and the habits of using their gestures are also different. For all these reasons, it should not be surprising that the duration of botox activity is also different.
Botox is effective on dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements. These wrinkles make you look older, angry or tired. It can be used for wrinkles between eyebrows, on your forehead, around the eyes, on the nose, around the lips and mouth and even in the neck area. It can even be applied to raise the eyebrows in patients with low eyebrows.
There is no life threatening risk in the doses used in wrinkle treatment. However, unwanted cosmetic results, such as droopy eyelid, may lead to asymmetries in the corner of the mouth as a result of application to the wrong areas. Botox should not be applied to people with active skin infections, people with muscle disease, those using aminoglycoside antibiotics, and pregnant women.
In order to prevent the excessive spread of botox on our face for the first few hours, you should not sleep, do not lie on your side, do not do heavy exercise or go into a hot sauna-bath. You do not need to massage the application areas. You can continue to use your facial muscles normally after the application. After the application, you can print with cold gels for a short time. Thus, you can prevent bruises that can sometimes occur in small amounts at the injection sites.
Unfortunately, after the wrong planned and excessive amount of botox application, all the facial expressions on their face disappear, so we see people walking around as a mask. Due to the fact that people cannot move their facial muscles at all and therefore their characteristic mimics are lost, the same, fabricated faces are formed. However, such an appearance does not occur as a result of applications made with the right principles. People can move their faces and mimic muscles, and it is not possible to understand that they are botox.
Some doctors use products of other brands under the name of botox, is this a problem?
Currently, there are more than 20 brands alternative to botox. Most of them are produced in the Far East, and some even have products that do not even have the name of the active substance in their prospectus. We recommend that you avoid places that offer botox at cheap prices because of the risk of using these products. Apart from such bad examples, there are two products with proven effectiveness and reliability after serious research in European countries like Turkey. Always ask your doctor about which product he is using.
