Wrinkle Treatment with Injections

Wrinkle treatment with injections is a procedure that temporarily paralyzes the muscles in the injected area, preventing contractions and thereby reducing wrinkles caused by movement.

It is most commonly applied to the upper face region, including the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow's feet), but it can also be applied to different areas such as around the mouth, chewing muscles, or neck muscles.

With upper face treatment, forehead lines caused by frowning or eyebrow lifting disappear. Improvement is observed in crow's feet wrinkles around the eyes. If the procedure is performed by the right individuals, without changing the person's facial expression, a reduction in wrinkles and a bright appearance on the face are achieved. There is a slight elevation in the eyebrows and an opening in the eyelids. In some individuals, bunny lines caused by the contraction of fine muscles near the nose when smiling can also be reduced with wrinkle treatment injections.

With perioral treatment, a decrease in upper lip wrinkles, which are common in smokers, is 

observed. In very deep wrinkles, combining the treatment with thin fillers enhances the treatment effect.

In addition, in patients complaining of gum exposure when smiling, significant improvement in gum exposure during smiling can be observed with the application made to the sides of the nose.

What should be considered after wrinkle treatment with injections?

Within the first 24 hours after the procedure, it is important to avoid external factors such as exercise, sauna, steam room, or hair dryer that may cause excessive sweating or heating of the treated area. Avoid rubbing the treated area for 4 hours after the procedure, as well as bending forward or lying down. Any redness on the skin that occurred during the procedure typically disappears within 15-20 minutes.

When does the effect of wrinkle treatment with injections start? How long does it last?

The effect of the treatment starts around the 3rd day and reaches its full effect by days 10-14. The immobility of the muscles gradually decreases within 4-6 months, and the muscles return to normal. Since the effect of the medication completely disappears after 6 months, there is no permanent effect or harm to the muscles.

Who should not undergo wrinkle treatment with injections? Can it be done in the summer?

Wrinkle treatment with injections should not be performed during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or in the presence of certain neurological conditions. Since it does not create sensitivity to the sun, it can be done year-round. If you have any medical conditions, be sure to inform your doctor before planning the treatment.
