Lines and wrinkles that present a tired, grumpy or even angry expression can now be safely and effectively removed while maintaining facial mobility for a natural look. After all, a natural and well-rested looking face, especially for a mature person, is so important to exude confidence.

Botox is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that is injected directly into the muscles to iron out unwanted wrinkles. It is most commonly used to treat forehead lines, frown lines in between the brows and wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Botox is also known as the ‘instant wrinkle corrector’.

Botox is also one of the most popular cosmetic procedure as it is proven safe by over 11 million people who experienced the effective results.

How It Works

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Topical anesthetic cream are applied, which provides numbing sensation, minutes before the Botox injections are given. Many patients found this treatment with minimal or no pain at all.

Botox temporarily blocks the signal from a nerve to a muscle so that the wrinkles formed by muscle contraction relaxes and softens. Botox works best for lines formed because of muscle contraction such as frown lines or “angry 11”, horizontal forehead lines and smile lines. Botox is also used to lift the eyebrows, to correct lines around the lips and neck, and in Singapore, a common use for Botox is to “slim” the face when it is injected into muscles that we use for chewing along the angles of the jaw.

Botox treatment lasts for 3-6 months, and with repeated treatments, the effectiveness of Botox tends to last longer as the muscles become less prominent. After the treatment, there is no recovery time (downtime) needed, patients can go back to their regular activities with a more natural and youthful look.
