What is Botox?
 When the collagen production of the body starts to decrease and the skin begins to lose its elasticity in advanced age, lines called mimic and anxiety lines are formed especially in the forehead area, between the eyebrows, on the upper part of the nose, and the lines called crow's feet are deepened around the eyes.

 Botox treatment is the name of the microinjection method that occurs by temporarily blocking the mimic muscles of the nerve endings connected to the muscles that are effective in the formation of these lines. After the procedure, the fine lines and wrinkles on the skin surface are reduced and the formation of new wrinkles is delayed. When it is also supported with eyebrow lifting, it makes a significant difference on the face.

 Botox gets its name from the Botox brand. DYsports and Botox brands that have received FDA approval should be preferred in Botox procedures.

Botox and filler applications are methods that work differently from each other. Although the common goal of both is to get rid of wrinkles, there are important differences in the way they function.

Yeniben users, who are not sure about which application they should have done, frequently ask this question to Yeniben doctors.
Botox; It works on wrinkles caused by facial movements or expressions in areas of influence. In filling applications; The skin layer is filled by injecting the filler under the skin in the areas where it is needed.

Thus, the problematic appearance is softened by adding temporary volume to the areas with wrinkles, sagging and similar problems. Filling application does not limit any muscle movement. Depending on the content of the preferred filler, the duration of action is between 8-12 months.
It is a treatment method performed by blocking the cholinergic nerves that cause sweating in the relevant area of people who suffer from excessive sweating in areas such as palms, armpits and soles.

Sweating treatment with Botox; It is performed by injecting 100-150 units of botox in total to 10-15 points in the relevant area after the iodine-starch test is performed in the area where sweating is observed. The duration of the treatment is 6 months on average, and the treatment is repeated at the end of the period.
People who have more than 3 migraine attacks in a month and who do not respond to treatment with painkillers can be treated with Botox.

In the treatment of migraine with Botox, the muscles that cause migraine attacks are blocked and excessive contraction of the muscles that cause pain is prevented. Treatment; It is done by injecting botox into 31 points in 7 different forehead areas. The duration of the treatment is 6-8 months. At the end of the period, the treatment is repeated.

Our specialist physicians answered in detail a question asked on the Yeniben Question & Answer page about the use of botox application in migraine treatment.
Botox injection is not only used for aesthetic purposes. As a method of vaginismus treatment, botox injections applied to the vaginal muscles in a single session and under anesthesia in the clinic relax these muscles completely.

As a result, there are no involuntary contractions during sexual intercourse. According to the studies; Vaginismus does not recur during sexual intercourse even after the effect of botox wears off.
In addition to aesthetic surgery applications, "Botulinum Toxin" substance is injected to a certain area of the stomach by the endoscopy method to reduce the amount of food consumed by the person. Thanks to this non-surgical procedure, the person eats less due to the feeling of satiety.

Masseter muscle is a facial muscle that connects your lower jaw to your cheek. This muscle, one of the few muscles responsible for chewing, often grows, becomes prominent, and can significantly change the shape of the lower face in patients who grind or squeeze their teeth.

 Masseter Botox injection is an application that helps relax the masseter muscle. It helps the jaw line to soften, the chewing muscle to lose its prominence and can make the face appear oval or heart-shaped. Botox injections are one of the most affordable ways to reduce the size of your masseter muscles and regain your proper facial proportions.

 Dysport or botox injections are used for massseter muscle growth. Normal jaw movement usually does not cause masseter muscle growth. But when you exercise your muscles, they grow larger and the masseter muscles can appear more of the same. The most common behaviors that contribute to an enlarged masseter muscle are clenching and grinding your teeth. You can perform this behavior, also called bruxism, under stress or even while sleeping. Since these behaviors are carried out without realizing it, masseter botox injections relax the masseter muscle and help prevent this repeated behavior.

 With this application, which helps to relax the masseter muscle by limiting its movement, the pressure exerted by the chewing muscles on the jaw line is also reduced and the desired appearance is obtained. You can still chew, move your jaw and make normal facial expressions after your treatment. The healing process is comfortable, you can immediately switch to your social life.
