Its primary use is to temporarily weaken the functioning of the mimic muscles, preventing wrinkles from the muscles around the face. Winkle Therapy is not a filler material or sneak poison. During the most active mimic movements, it prevents the formation of wrinkles on the inside between two eyebrows and the wrinkles (crowbar) that develops on the eyelids. It is effective in raising eyebrows. The resulting image is quieter, more peaceful and younger.
In the United States, the FDA and the Health Ministry of Turkish Republic have approved the use of this product. It can be said that the results are permanent for a period of 3 to 6 months. For patients with larger facial muscles (such as men) or those with more facial muscles, more frequent treatments may require more frequent treatment. Generally, Winkle Therapy injections are almost “trained” to move the facial muscles too much. This is the result of some patients who are accustomed to eyebrows when they talk. A marked improvement is also achieved in the face expression, which appears to be aged and angry in this way.
Deep wrinkles with Winkle Therapy may not disappear completely. In order to improve the wrinkle marks, it is possible to fill the lines with the same session or later with injection materials again. With these properties, Botulinum Toxin is a highly effective, safe, low-risk, effective drug that can be an alternative to some surgeries.
Perspiratory glands in the place where Winkle Therapy is made work less. Winkle Therapy may also be given to people with excessive sweating on their palms, feet, and underarms and these complaints can be reduced for about 8-10 months. Botulinum toxin is a miracle for them, especially when they are uncomfortable with underarm sweats.
So, Winkle Therapy is not done with whom? Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding babies should wait for injections. Patients with neuromuscular disorders or bleeding problems, those with skin disease to be treated, cannot be candidates for Winkle Therapy injections. Those who use blood diluted like aspirin should stop using drugs at least 7-10 days before applying.
Winkle Therapy is seen as a simple injection, but the goal is to eliminate the wrinkles completely and create a face without expression, but to get a young and calm look with the right point intervention. In this regard, your doctor is an expert in facial aesthetics; you need to know your expectations and do not run away.
