It is possible to correct the fine wrinkles at specific sites with botox. You can have botox done by Op. Dr. Çağatay Falcıoğlu in Ankara.
Botulinum toxin is a product of the bacteria called c.difficile. This toxin prevents muscular contraction. In fact, the aim in botox is to stop the functioning of the muscles. Not to directly lift the skin.
This is exactly what we try to explain to some of our patients. If the muscular contraction has stopped, although there is a slight wrinkle on the skin, we don’t have anything to do more. The reason is that the wrinkle that leaves a mark on the skin will open in time.
