ABOUT

Botox & Neuro-toxin Injections

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.

Types of Botox in Singapore

There are 3 main brands of Botox offered by aesthetic clinics in Singapore

  • Botulinum Toxin, or Botox (Allergan)
  • Dysport (Medicis)
  • Xeomin (Merz).

Of the aforementioned 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.

HOW IT WORKS

How Neuro-toxin Injections Work

Neurotoxins work by inhibiting muscle contractions in “problem areas” to smooth and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxin injections can also be used for contouring by relaxing the masseter muscles to produce a more prominent V-line and slimmer appearance.

The following are the benefits that the patient can get from the treatment like botulinum toxin (Botox) to produce natural looking results:

  • A rejuvenated aura in the upper face and lower face
  • Abates the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles surrounding the eyes
  • Aids in the relief of chronic back pain and jaw strain
  • Improves appearance of Glabellar or frown lines around the eyes
  • Treat signs of ageing like forehead lines
  • Lessens deep creases found in between the eyebrows
  • Minimizes the body’s production of excess sweat
  • Reshaping of cheeks and jaw by reducing the size of the masseter muscles
  • Smoothens skin and wrinkles as facial muscles becomes more relaxed

Targeted skin conditions include:

  • Bunny and lip lines
  • Chin depressions
  • Crow’s feet
  • Calf contouring
  • Facial contouring
  • Forehead lines
  • Glabellar or frown lines
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Gummy smile
  • Prominent jaw muscles
  • Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
  • Downturned mouth corners

Is Botox Effective For Wrinkles?

When determining whether Botox can be effective in treating your wrinkles, it is important to first identify the type of wrinkles you have. Dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear with movement, such as when one smiles or frowns) can be treated most effectively with Botox while imprinted wrinkles (wrinkles that can be seen on the face without any movement or expression made) do not respond well with Botox.

Contrary to the belief that Botox is only used when people develop wrinkles, preventive Botox treatments can prevent your muscles from making certain expressions that contribute to formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

Will Botox Make My Face Look Frozen?

There are some common myths surrounding Botox in Singapore. In actual, Botox can look completely natural when done right. When done inappropriately however, Botox can result in a “frozen” and unnatural looking face. This is caused by Botox that is injected unevenly, over-injected, or injected into the wrong areas. As a result, the face does not quite “follow” the emotions you express – for instance, eyes that do not smile when you are smiling. Such cases of botched Botox will then require correction, resulting in higher costs for the patient. It is thus important for patients to be prudent when it comes to selecting a doctor for Botox treatments.

At Veritas Clinic, neuro-toxin injections are done by Dr. Chua Cheng Yu, who holds a certification by the Aesthetic Dermatology Educational Group (ADEG) in Singapore and 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.

Botox treatment is both a science and an art. It is important for the doctor administering Botox to have both technique and a keen eye for aesthetics. At Veritas, our doctor is experienced in natural injection techniques. Whereas Botox injections can result in bruising, our technique is one that does not cause any bruising due to the doctor’s method of selecting the injection points. Equipped with a solid understanding of facial anatomy, our doctor effectively assesses the patient’s muscles and expressions to inject specific muscles precisely, helping patients to achieve natural looking results.
