Botulinum toxin is one of the breakthrough innovations in aesthetic medicine. Especially in facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment, it has become an indispensable part of aesthetic medicine both with its practical application and immediate return to social life and with its effective results.

Botulinum toxin effect begins on day 3 and takes 15 days to sit. Control and retouching may be required 2 weeks after administration.  Botulinum toxin effect (although varies from person to person) persists for 4-5 months.

Interred Therapy

Botulinum toxin is the first treatment option for opening wrinkles in the forehead area, eye edges (goose feet) and eyebrow area. In addition, filling, fat injection or forehead lift may be required in people who have been present for a long time and do not apply botulinum toxins.

Screeing

Botulinum toxin has the ability to lift the edge of the eyebrow by 3-5 millimeters when used with the appropriate technique.  In further eyebrow lifting needs, rope hanging or eyebrow lifting surgery is required.
