WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Botulinum toxin has been proven to smooth and even eliminate forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet, and neck bands. This is also used in conjunction with forehead lifts, facelifts, and eyelid surgery. It can also be used to treat conditions such as a ‘Gummy smile’, depressed corner of the mouth, and chin dimpling.
Botulinum toxin is injected directly into the muscle with a tiny needle and works by relaxing targeted muscles. Patients also may experience slight discomfort when the needle is inserted and the Botulinum toxin is injected. The entire treatment is performed in 10 to 15 minutes with no recovery time.
With some patients, the loss of muscle activities in the forehead region may be distressing. The alternative is micro-botox. This is where the injection is placed at a more superficial level. So, Using this method preserves most of the activities of the muscles with some relaxation. In addition, the quality of the skin will improve. At our clinic, we will discuss and advice according to the requirement of the individual patients.
Micro-Botox-treated skin looks much younger, fairer, smooth, brighter, and less oily. It reduces wrinkles and fine lines as well as produces more natural results. Results are evident after one treatment, but one treatment a month for three months is recommended.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF MICROBOTOX?
- Reduced pore size
- The skin appears so much more smooth and tight
- Botox reduces the problem of acne considerably.
- Botox Injections deactivate Sebaceous and sweat glands.
- The results appear more natural.
- Botox is injected superficially, so facial muscle remains less affected.
The use of Botulinum has also been for other treatments. Jawline reduction (Masseter muscle), and calf reduction (Gastrocnemius muscle) are some of the common treatments performed by our experienced nurse.
The use of Botulinum is not a permanent treatment and the maximum effect remains for usually around eight weeks.
