What Does It Involve?

Botulinum toxin has been proven to smooth and even eliminate forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet and neck bands and is also used in conjunction with forehead lifts, facelifts, and eyelid surgery. It can also be used to treat conditions such as ‘Gummy smile’, depressed corner of mouth and chin dimpling.

Botulinum toxin is injected directly into the muscle with a tiny needle and works by relaxing targeted muscles. Patients may experience a 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-botoxing where injection is placed at more superficial level.  This preserved most of the activities of the muscles with some relaxation.  In addition, the quality of skin will improve.  At our clinic, we will discuss and advice according to the requirement of individual patient.

The use of Botulinum has also been for other treatments.  Jawline reduction (Masseter muscle), calf reduction (Gastronemius muscle) are some of the common treatments performed by us.

The use of Botulinum is not a permanent treatment and the maximum effect remains for usually around eight weeks.

After Surgery

Patients can immediately resume normal activities, although, it takes a few days to see the results of the Botox injections. Typically the effects of Botox last for three to six months and must be repeated to maintain results.

Testimonial

I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.

Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).

Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
