Botox in Istanbul

Compare 5 clinics

Botox injections refer to the use of different variations of the botulinum toxin to temporarily relax and slow down muscle activity. The botulinum toxin is produced by the same microbe which causes botulism, a serious medical problem. Botox injections have a wide range of uses, both cosmetic and health uses.

Botox cosmetic uses - botox injections can temporarily relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Injections can help patients with:

● Frown lines between the eyebrows
● Forehead lines
● Crow’s feet – the lines from the corners of the eyes

Botox injections can also help treat conditions that affect different functions of the body, including:

● Cervical dystonia – the patient’s neck muscles contract involuntarily, causing pain
● Strabismus – this is caused by an imbalance in the muscles which control the patient’s eye movement
● Muscle contractures – this can also be caused by cerebral palsy
● Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating – some patients experience excessive sweating, even in cooler temperatures and when not exercising
● Chronic migraines – botox can help reduce headache frequency
● Bladder dysfunctions – botox treatment can also help reduce urinary incontinence

Although it has many advantages and uses in the medical world, botox is not a miracle cure. It has several disadvantages, including:

● Botox injections can be a bit expensive
● Botox injections are not a permanent solution
● Botox treatment can be less effective in older patients
● Too much of it can lead to side-effects

Botox Candidates

● Cervical dystonia
● Strabismus
● Muscle contractures
● Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
● Chronic migraines

Am I Suitable for Botox?

Botox injections or botox treatment are not recommended for patients who are breastfeeding or nursing. Patients who plan on getting pregnant soon should hold off the treatment. This treatment is also not recommended for patients under the age of 18. Patients with an active infection near the treatment area should postpone the treatment as well. Some individuals may be allergic to botox.

Preparing for Botox

Blood thinners such as aspirin, herbal teas, natural supplements need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the treatment is set to begin. Patients will be thoroughly tested before beginning the botox treatment.

How is Botox Performed?

While most individuals can tolerate the botox injections, some may want to numb certain, more sensitive areas before the botox treatment is set to begin. Patients can pick between anaesthesia injections, creams or a simple cold spray that will numb the area.

Once the area is numb, the doctor will begin injecting very small amounts of botox into the muscles or skin. A very fine needle is used for this procedure. The amount of botox used and the amount of injections depends on the area treated and its size. Botox treatment usually lasts less than an hour, then the patient may return home.

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens.
