Before heading to your local Botulinum Toxin clinic, here’s what you should know.

Choosing a Qualified Provider is a Necessity
More and more medical providers are now offering Botulinum Toxin as part of their services – including GPs (General Practitioners). However, you should carefully choose who will administer your Botulinum Toxin injection.
In Singapore, make sure to consult a medical aesthetic doctors who can legally and skillfully perform a Botulinum Toxin injections. Having a skilled and experienced medical provider is important, as injections that are too deep, too low, or in the wrong spot could result in negative side effects, such as droopy eyelids.
The best way is to ask for referrals from your friends (if they will reveal their Botox secret) or research online for genuine reviews about the aesthetic doctor.
Minimal Side Effects are Common
Some patients report minimal side effects after a treatment session. Common Botulinum Toxin side effects include slight pain, mild redness, swelling, and bruising of the treatment area. All of these side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days.
Results Take a Few Weeks to See
Generally, the results will not appear right instantly. It takes at least 5 to 7 days before the effects of Botox start to ‘kick in’ and for you to start seeing a reduction in the lines and wrinkles on your face.
Try to be patient after your procedure especially because it may take at least after 2 weeks for you to see the full results.
Results Generally Last Several Months
On average, the results from Botulinum Toxin last between two and six months, with the most common length being four months. In some patients, the results diminish after just two to three months.
In comparison, some patients have results that last upwards of five or six months or more. Ask your doctor what you can expect before undergoing a Botulinum Toxin injection.
Botulinum Toxin Can Help to Gradually Train Your Muscles
What most people don’t know is that Botulinum Toxin has the ability to gradually train your muscles over time. With consistent treatments, you may notice an increase in longevity as the muscle may decrease in strength and cause gradual relaxing of the treated area.
As the muscles are less active, they are also less likely to create wrinkles hence, making your results last longer.
