Botox injection, which has become increasingly popular in recent years, is a good alternative to quickly get rid of wrinkles without the need for surgery. This toxin, which is produced under laboratory conditions from botulinum bacteria, is given to mimic structures in small quantities and temporarily prevents the muscles that cause wrinkles from working. After the effect that lasts for 4-6 months, the mimic muscles start to work again. Thus, wrinkles caused by mimic muscles are not observed during the effect of Botox. Botox takes about 20 minutes to apply. Its effect starts immediately. The maximum effect begins to be seen after about 5 days.
Botox is also used for excessive sweating. It provides temporary relief in patients with excessive sweating in areas such as hands, feet and armpits. Botox is not recommended for pregnant, lactating and those with neurological diseases.
