Botulinum Toxin – Botox

January 13, 2016


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.

Botulinum Toxin (or more commonly known as Botox) is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that is injected directly into the muscles to iron out unwanted wrinkles. In a Botox clinic in Singapore, 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 in Singapore 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 is 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 (angry 11), horizontal forehead lines and smile lines (crows feet). Botox is also used to lift the eyebrows or droopy eyelid, to correct lines around the lips and neck.

In Botox Singapore, it can also be used to “slim” the face when it is injected into muscles that we use for chewing along the angles of the jaw resulting in a sharper and slimmer facial contour.

What to Expect After a Botox Injection

A Botox treatment lasts for 3-6 months, and with repeated treatments, the effectiveness of Botox injection 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.

Botox side effects may include temporary redness lasting for 15-20 minutes and there is a small potential for temporary bruising at the injection point. If present, this tiny bruising can easily be concealed with mineral make-up and will resolve in a couple of days.
