Botox (Botulinum toxin) application is one of the most popular and fastest-acting applications among non-surgical aesthetic applications. Botox application, with its effects on both the muscles and the skin, has been safely preferred by skilled hands for years. The use of Botox applications in medicine is based on many years. It was first used in the treatment of strabismus in the 1970s. Then, when it was observed that the wrinkles on the face improved in these cases, it started to be used for aesthetic purposes in the 1980s. It is the most frequently used application in Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dermatology. As for the reasons, botox applications are an application that pleases the patient and the doctor with its dramatic effect. In addition to the noticeable effect in a short time, the fact that the side effects of this treatment, which has been applied safely for years, can be prevented and corrected under the supervision of doctors are other reasons for preference.

If a pianist is going to practice because his hands are sweaty, the practice should not be carried to his fingertips.
EFFECTIVE UP TO 9 MONTHS
It is recommended not to apply anesthetic cream in the Botox procedure. Because studies have shown that it has no effect on pain. It is also thought that the heat of the botox product during the process, the application and the ice application applied to the skin after the botox content may not reach the targeted area. Therefore, it is recommended not to apply cold. Again, the amount and application intervals of botox are also important on the duration of its effectiveness.

Staying away from harmful habits and stress delays our aging process and prolongs the effect of botox. Eating rich in collagen, doing sports, spending time with our pawed friends, yoga and meditation can also prolong the effect of botox.
CHW BOTOX REQUIRES SPECIAL TECHNIQUE
Chewing botox requires special techniques; Especially applying it to the masticatory muscle masseter and temporal muscles extending to the hair above the ear increases the effect. It may take up to a month for the muscles to reach the desired state in chewing botox.
ZINC EXTENDS THE EFFECT OF BOTOX
If possible, it is important to have the zinc level checked before the Botox application. Because in order for botox to take effect, there must be a sufficient level of zinc in the body. If there is a miscarriage, it has been shown that taking zinc 4 days before the botox procedure prolongs the effect of botox.
THINGS TO BE CONSIDERED AFTER THE APPLICATION
In order to minimize the risk of botox spreading to unwanted muscle groups after the procedure, patients are recommended to stay in an upright position for 4 hours. Again, after the procedure, alcohol and cigarettes should not be smoked for 2-3 days. Considering that the expected effect can be fully realized within two weeks, the expectation should not be kept high in this process. The patient should not forget that at the end of this period, he can go to the doctor again for the second correction, the effect of the treatment is temporary, and a healthier skin will be achieved with the applications to be made. It should not be forgotten that additional applications that may reduce the duration of the effect should be avoided and health routines should be followed.
MUST BE DONE BY THE DOCTOR
In order to avoid the unwanted effects of botox, it should not be done in such special cases, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, some muscle diseases, allergy to some drugs and botox products. The most frequently reported undesirable effects are redness and bleeding points after the procedure. Facial asymmetry, inability to close or drooping eyes can also be seen. Fatigue and headache may also develop in the person. Although these side effects are rare, considering that there may be situations that require the intervention of the doctor, it should be underlined once again that approved registered botox products should be used and these applications should be applied in a health institution and by a doctor.
