WHAT IS THE TREATMENT ABOUT?
Neuro-toxin injections are neuromodulators that work to minimize or get rid of wrinkles caused as a result of muscle contraction by modifying the signals received by the nerves temporarily. At Veritas, we use three brands of neuro-toxin injections. These are Botulinum Toxin, or Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Medicis), and Xeomin (Merz). These products offer a wide variety of alternatives that can benefit patients in Singapore with proper administration. Over time, we have discovered what these products can do in the same way, as well as what they can do differently.
Of the mentioned neuro-toxin injections, the body is able to respond to Xeomin well as it is injected in pure form. On the other hand, botulinum toxin (Botox) and Dysport disperse differently as these neuro-toxins have a layer of protein covering the active part of the molecule that serves as protection. All three neuro-toxin injections are approved in Singapore by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A big factor in achieving success in the administration of the products like botulinum toxin (botox) lies in the understanding and skill of the doctor. At Veritas Clinic, neuro-toxin injections like botox in Singapore are done by Dr. Chua Cheng Yu, who has undergone trainings in a wide range of surgeries. His knowledge in facial anatomy enables him to perform plastic surgery with the right skills and expert technique that ensures the patient in undergoing a safe procedure and attaining optimum results. Dr. Chua Cheng Yu holds a certification given by the Aesthetic Dermatology Educational Group (ADEG) in Singapore.
