Botox (botulinum toxin), also known as Clostridium botulinum, is a type of toxin produced by bacteria. Botox, this harmless toxin, has an effective mechanism of blocking the release of neurotransmitters and interrupting the communication between the nerve and the target area. The result of the Botox application is the loss of communication, failure to obey commands, and reduced or complete loss of nerve activity in the organs it accesses. Botox, prepared in the laboratory, has been used for many years for various treatments and diseases, and now it is popular at the application level for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures.
In medicine, the mechanism of action of Botox is used in many fields. In the field of plastic surgery and cosmetics, it is used to remove wrinkles of the facial muscles caused by the movement of these muscles, to reduce sweating in areas with few lines, and excessive sweating.
According to statistics from the United States of America in recent years; Botox is the most frequently performed and is witnessing a significant increase in medical cosmetic treatments. The same statistics exist in our country. Some people have not heard the name Botox, but this trend is rapidly decreasing.
Remove lines and wrinkles with Botox
With a 15-year guarantee, Botox has entered the aesthetic industry as the best and easiest way to safely remove aging wrinkles from our faces.
Continuity of facial muscle activity, genetic factors, and habits affect the formation of folds in the skin layer covering these muscles and their appearance, resulting in facial wrinkles and dynamic lines. The most visible of these dynamic lines are between the forehead and eyebrows, around the corners of the eyes, and around the mouth. Lines on the forehead, above the lips, and around the eyes make a person look older, while lines between the eyebrows make them look frowny and angry. Botox causes these dynamic facial muscles to shrink, Botox blocks nerve connections, reduces muscle strength and movement, and shrinks the folds of skin surrounding these muscles. formation of line wrinkles. Therefore, a significant improvement is observed in the face showing signs of aging, fatigue, and irritability.
Cosmetologists say that muscle contractions under the skin are the result of skin tightening. After Botox, as a result of the relaxation of these muscles, wrinkles will decrease or disappear completely.
