What are Botox Applications?


Those who have bruxism problem are also applied for toxin treatment.

It can be used in facial paralysis, to provide facial symmetry, to prevent involuntary facial contractions and blepharospasm.

Since fine-tipped needles are used in toxin application, pain is almost non-existent.

It is generally applied without the need for anesthetic creams.

The toxin, known as Botox, is obtained from bacteria in the laboratory environment.

The toxin is injected into certain muscle groups to be affected, causing a temporary loss of movement in those muscles.

Thus, the skin group to which that muscle is attached cannot move and wrinkles in that area are reduced or not formed at all.

How Long Does Botox Effect Last?

Although the effect of the toxin varies from patient to patient, it is usually 4-6 months.

Who Can Have Botox?

Since the toxin is not a filler, it does not add volume to any part of the face. Anyone who wishes can have this application done, but in some cases it is not recommended.

Toxin can not be administered to pregnant women and nursing mothers, people with rare muscle diseases.

Suitable for aged 18 and over for aesthetic purposes.

In case the sweat glands work more than they should, toxin is applied to the affected areas (palms, armpits, etc.) in order to prevent excessive sweating.


For the first 2 days, it is recommended that the patient not apply pressure to the injection points and not lie face down.

Since it is a protein-based toxin, it is recommended not to enter the sauna for a few days or stand in the heat for a long time.

The effect of the application begins to be seen after 2-3 days.

From the 1st week, the effect of the toxin reaches the ideal point.
