Botox for wrinkle treatment

How are wrinkles formed?

Various facial muscles are constantly contracted by mimic movements, and wrinkles appear in the areas of contraction. Decreased cell production of the skin, decreased defense status, decrease in collagen and elastic fibers, and constant mimics are the main causes of facial wrinkles.


BOTULINUM TOXIN TYPE A is a natural and pure protein drug that relaxes the muscles by temporarily stopping the nerve transmission that determines muscle movements. In this injection application, which is made in doses suitable for mimic muscles, the release of a substance called acetylcholine, which causes muscle contraction, can be prevented and the contraction task of this substance can be temporarily stopped. As the muscle relaxes, the associated skin can take on a flatter appearance.
In this way, the facial expression can get a calmer and more comfortable look.


Botulinum toxin, which is a muscle relaxant drug with clinical applications, is a drug obtained from the clostridium botulinum bacteria and is used for treatment and support purposes in large muscle groups in children. For this reason, the fact that much lower doses are applied to the mimic muscles makes this method used in wrinkle treatment reliable.

This application consists of injecting the necessary doses of botulinum toxin into the relevant areas, which takes about 10-15 minutes.
