Let me tell you first of all, it is not snake venom 🙂 It is a drug with the trade name Botox, obtained from a bacterium and called botulinium toxin. It is in the top rank in non-surgical aesthetic interventions all over the world.
It can be applied to the entire upper half of the face, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, between the eyebrows and the root of the nose, as well as to slightly lift the corners of the mouth, solve the gum problem that appears with a smile, remove cigarette lines, and provide tension in the neck. It is even known to be very useful in the treatment of migraine.
Another area of use for Botox is the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). It can provide long-term comfort in armpit, hand and foot sweating. Contrary to popular belief, it has no harm to the body. Although it may vary according to the area used, there is no Botox left in the body after 4-4.5 months.
Botox can eliminate fine wrinkles that are not deep, as well as prevent the deepening of all wrinkles. If the wrinkle is very deep, it will not disappear completely, but will be lightened. Fillers should be used together with botox in deep wrinkles.
After the first application, the effect starts around 2-3 days and completely settles in 10-12 days. After this day, some retouching can be done to the patients. A person who has botox once goes back to his old self after the effect of botox wears off. It doesn’t get worse or more wrinkled. It doesn’t necessarily have to be done again later. However, in my personal experience, a patient who has had it done once and sees its positive effects is highly willing to have Botox again.
As a result, botox is a procedure that can be done within 10 minutes in outpatient conditions and is one of the most effective and simplest breaks that a person can give to aging. Let’s close with a phrase I always say: ‘One day every living thing will taste Botox!’
