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