Botox Injection, Botox Ankara New

Botox treatment can be applied in different parts of the body.

Botox Injections on the Upper Part of the Face:

Botox, the brand name for botulinum toxin, has a variety of injections for both medical and cosmetic purposes. Botox is applied primarily to make aesthetic improvements in the upper part of the face and to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that occur due to facial expressions.

Forehead Lines: Horizontal lines along the forehead that become evident when you raise your eyebrows can be treated with Botox injection. Botox smoothes wrinkles by relaxing the frontalis muscle, which is responsible for forehead movement.

Teacher’s Lines (Glabellar Lines): Vertical lines between the eyebrows, generally known as “11 lines” and appearing when the eyebrows are frowned, can be treated with Botox injection. Injecting Botox into the corrugator muscles and procerus muscle reduces the activity of the muscles and softens frown lines.

Crow’s Feet: When the orbicularis oculi muscle, this surrounds our eyelids in a circular manner and allows us to close our eyelids, contracts, crow’s feet lines form on the edge of the eyelids. These lines begin to become evident in the 30s. Botox is injected into the orbicularis oculi muscle surrounding the eye. This relaxes the muscles and reduces the appearance of crow’s feet.

Eyebrow Lift: Slightly drooping eyebrows, which can cause the eyes to look tired, can be treated with Botox injection. It can relax the orbicularis oculi muscle, which pulls the eyebrows down, allowing the frontal muscles to pull the eyebrow area up, thus raising the eyebrows and opening the eyes.

Rabbit Lines: Small wrinkles on the bridge of the nose that appear when we scratch the nasal bone can be treated with Botox injection. Botox injections can relax the nasal muscles such as the Levator alaque nasii, which is responsible for bending the nose, and thus correct these lines.

Medical Botox Injections

Beyond these cosmetic injections, Botox is also used medically for a variety of conditions on the upper face:

Blepharospasm: Involuntary twitching or tight closing of the eyelids.

Hemifacial spasm: Involuntary twitching on one side of the face.

Chronic migraine: Botox injections may help reduce the frequency of migraines. The supratrochlear nerve passes through the corrugator supercili and depressor supercili muscles in this region. In some cases, contraction of these muscles can compress the nerve and cause the onset of a migraine attack. Again, Botox injections applied to this area can prevent migraine attacks. The American drug and food control organization FDA has approved it for the treatment of chronic migraine since 2010. However, botox injections in migraine treatment are more comprehensive than aesthetic injections.

Botox Injections in the Middle and Lower Parts of the Face

When used in the middle and lower parts of the face, Botox can be effective in eliminating aesthetic concerns related to muscle activity and aging. Unlike upper face treatments, which mostly focus on softening horizontal and vertical lines, mid-face treatments tend to focus more on improving facial contours and treating dynamic lines that can give the face a tired or saggy appearance.

Some of the common uses of Botox in the central part of the face include:

Nasolabial Folds: These are lines that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth and generally become more pronounced with age. Although Botox is not usually used to directly treat nasolabial folds (fillers are more commonly used here), it can be applied to muscles near the area to relax facial expressions that can deepen these folds.

Perioral Lines (Cigarette or Barcode Lines): Fine lines around the mouth that are often exacerbated by smoking or pursing the lips. The appearance of these lines can be softened by injecting a small dose of botox into the orbicularis oris muscle surrounding the mouth to relax these contractions.

Smile treatment: A gummy smile occurs when a significant amount of gum tissue appears over the upper teeth when smiling. Botox can be injected into the muscles that elevate the upper lip (depressor septi, levator labii superioris, Levator alaque nasii) to limit the upward movement of the lip during smiling, thus preventing the gum tissue from forming. exposure is reduced.

Dimpled Chin: The orange peel appearance on the chin caused by the dimpled effect of the mentalis muscle can be treated with Botox injection. Injecting Botox into the mentalis muscle can relax the chin area and correct the dimpled or pebbled appearance.

Marionette (Puppet) Lines: Lines that extend down from the corners of the mouth and give the person a sad or angry appearance can be treated with Botox injection. Botox prevents the formation of these lines around the mouth.The contributing depressor anguli oris muscles can be used to relax, but fillers are more commonly used to plump this area directly. Botox treatment together with filler can give a more effective result.

Masseter Muscle (Jaw Botox): The masseter muscle starts from the cheekbone and ends at the corner of our jaw. In some people, this muscle becomes very prominent from birth or due to nightly teeth grinding, making the jaw look wide. It can be treated with Botox injections into the lower jaw masseter muscle, which looks very wide and angular. Botox reduces the volume of this muscle and is a cure for nighttime teeth grinding, and as the jaw contour becomes more beautiful, the angular appearance of the face disappears and can create a more oval and more V-shaped beautiful face.

Treatment of Platysma Bands with Botox: The platysma muscle is a large, thin muscle that runs from the chest along the neck to the jawline. As we age, the platysma muscle may separate into different bands, and these bands may become more noticeable due to skin thinning and muscle laxity. Botox injections into the platysma muscle relax the parts of the muscle that form visible bands. Reduces downward pull, Platysma can pull down the lower face and jawline, increasing jowls and sagging. Botox can slightly lift the area by relaxing these downward pulling movements. When the muscle is relaxed, vertical bands become less obvious and the neck becomes smoother. This is also called Nefertiti botox among the public.

Sweating Treatment: 

Botox injections are a very effective treatment method for treating excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis. This condition can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, causing discomfort, embarrassment, and anxiety. Botox works by blocking the signals that stimulate the sweat glands, leading to a significant reduction in sweating in the treated areas.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can be of two types. Primary Hyperhidrosis, This condition involves excessive sweating in certain areas such as the armpits, palms, soles of the feet, and face without any underlying medical cause. It often begins in adolescence or even childhood and can last a lifetime. Secondary Hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, can also be caused by underlying medical conditions or medications. In such cases, treatment of the underlying cause is very important.

How does Botox work in the treatment of sweating? Botox works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for stimulating sweat glands. The effects of Botox on sweating are temporary; It usually takes 4 to 6 months, depending on the person’s response and the area treated.

Who Can Get Aesthetic Botox Treatment?

Aesthetic Botox treatment is generally suitable for adults who want to address specific cosmetic concerns related to facial aging or expression lines. However, there are some considerations and factors that determine whether a person is a suitable candidate for aesthetic Botox treatment.

Age: Aesthetic Botox treatment is generally suitable for adults over 18 years of age. There is no upper age limit, but individuals must be in good general health.

Medical History: People with certain medical conditions, such as bleeding disorders, or who take certain medications may not be suitable candidates for Botox treatment.

Expectations: Realistic expectations are very important. Botox can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, but it is not a permanent solution and the results are temporary. It is important to understand the limitations and potential consequences of treatment.

Contraindications: There are certain contraindications to Botox treatment, such as pregnancy or breastfeeding, certain neuromuscular disorders (e.g. myasthenia gravis), and known allergies to botulinum toxin or any of its ingredients.

How is Botox Treatment Applied?

Botox treatment is usually administered through a series of injections directly into the muscles targeted for relaxation. The procedure is minimally invasive and is performed in a doctor’s office.

Interview: Before treatment, the patient will evaluate the concerns of the individual who will receive Botox, discuss treatment goals, review medical history, and determine the suitability of Botox treatment.

Preparation: After the decision to continue Botox treatment is made, the treatment area is cleaned with antiseptic solution to reduce the risk of infection. A tropical numbing cream or ice pack may be applied to minimize discomfort.

Injection: administers Botox injections directly into targeted muscles using a very fine needle. The number of injections and the amount of Botox used depend on the treatment area, the severity of wrinkles or lines, the person’s muscle strength and facial anatomy.

Targeted Muscles: Injections are strategically placed in specific muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles or lines. Common treatment areas include the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), around the eyes (crow’s feet), and other areas of the face where muscle activity contributes to facial expression lines.

Post-Treatment Care: Once the injections are completed, the person can immediately resume normal activities. However, they may be advised to avoid strenuous exercise, exposure to excessive heat, and rubbing or massaging the treated area for the first 24 hours to minimize the risk of side effects.

Results: The effects of Botox treatment usually begin to appear within a few days, and full results are usually visible within 1-2 weeks. The treated muscles relax slowly, resulting in smoother, less prominent wrinkles and lines. The duration of results varies but generally lasts 3 to 6 months; After this period, treatments must be repeated to maintain the effects.

What to Expect After Botox Treatment?

Discomfort during the injection process is usually mild and short-lived and is often described as a slight stinging or tightness. Any discomfort usually subsides quickly after the procedure. Some redness, swelling or spot bruising may occur at the injection sites immediately after treatment. These are usually minor and temporary and resolve within a few hours to a day.From the first hours to the first days, you will be advised to avoid touching or rubbing the treated area immediately after the procedure to prevent the Botox from spreading to unwanted muscles. Most people can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. However, to minimize the risk of side effects, avoid strenuous exercise, hot baths or saunas for the first 24 hours. The effects of Botox treatment typically begin to appear within a few days, and visible improvement in wrinkles and lines becomes more apparent within the first week. Some people may experience temporary weakness or heaviness in the treated muscles, especially if larger muscles are targeted. This condition usually resolves within a week as the muscles adapt to the treatment. Since UV radiation can reduce the effectiveness of Botox, it is important to avoid long-term sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect treated skin. The full effects of Botox treatment are usually seen within 1 to 2 weeks, with optimum results being achieved by the end of the first month. At this point, wrinkles and lines are significantly reduced, and the skin looks smoother and younger. Botox results usually last between 3 and 6 months, depending on factors such as individual metabolism, muscle strength and treatment area.
