The lines formed by the movements of the mimic muscles, especially in the upper part of the face, begin to become permanent over the years. With the application of botulinum toxin, it is possible to get rid of these wrinkles as a result of reducing or preventing the contraction of the muscles depending on the dose by blocking the interaction between the nerve ending and the muscle in this region. The fact that this effect is dose dependent allows the result of the procedure to be natural according to the patient’s wishes. It gives the best results if the application is started in the first years when wrinkles start to settle on the skin. Forehead, between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, nose edges, around the lips are the most frequently applied areas.
Sometimes there may be sweating in the armpits, hands and feet and face area that will affect the social life of the patient. Botulinum toxin stops sweating by temporarily blocking the command to sweat glands in nerve endings. The most frequently asked question is whether stopping sweating is harmful. Hands, feet and face are not areas that normally sweat. Underarm sweating is absent before puberty. For this reason, there is no harm to health to prevent sweating in these areas.
Square Face (Masseter) Treatment
Face shape is one of the most important factors when evaluating facial beauty. While an oval and narrowing face is considered beautiful, an angular chin causes a masculine and harsh expression, especially in women. Excessive growth of the muscle called masseter in the corner of the chin can cause this appearance. In this case, this muscle can be weakened and reduced in size by making botulinum toxin. This application is also performed on patients who grind their teeth at night, thus eliminating this problem.
Aesthetic Smile (Gummy Smile) Treatment
Visible gingival level during smiling is very important. The excessive appearance of the gums reduces the attractiveness and beauty of the person. Weakening the muscle that pulls the lips up while laughing with botulinum toxin eliminates this image.
