Over time, as the sun damages your skin, the temporary wrinkles that form on your face when you move your facial muscles may become more permanent. This can cause you to look stern, tired or angry even when the underlying muscles are still. This happens because the sun degrades your skin so much that it loses natural elasticity.
Botulinum toxin is a prescription medicine that is injected to relax the muscles beneath, preventing the creation of dynamic lines and wrinkles with age.
Botulinum toxin, is a protein produced by the the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes muscles by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle contraction that cause lines and wrinkles.
The cosmetic effect of Botulinum toxin was first documented as early as 1989. It is now regularly used by males and females. It is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance than traditional forms of treatment such as plastic surgery.
The common applications are:
Your specialist doctor will medically examine you and make sure you are suitable for the procedure. Topical anesthetic or an ice pack may be applied to numb the area before the injection
The Botulinum toxin will be injected precisely into the treatment areas. The result will gradually appear and final result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment
Avoid touching, rubbing or applying make up on the treated areas for 4 hours. The procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. Specific after care instructions will be given to you on the day of your treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
Only you and your doctor can decide if the treatment is right for you and your concerns. During your medical consultation, our expert cosmetic specialist doctors will asses your medical history and make sure you are suitable for the treatment.
Ensure to tell the doctor about all of your medical conditions, including:
Injection related side effects are minimal and temporary such as redness, swelling and bruising. Spreading of the Botulinum toxin to the muscles nearby can be easily prevented by avoiding rubbing or massaging the treated areas for 4 hours
On average 4-6 months. In order to achieve the best prevention of aging lines, it is recommended to have the treatment regularly every 4 months
The treatment result is really up to your preference. The doctor will discuss and tailor the treatment to what you prefer. Most patients prefer the fresh and natural look.
The relaxant effect of the Botulinum toxin will wear off over time and you can effectively continue or discontinue at any time that suits you. This being said regular treatment will prevent those deeper, more permanent lines that appear with age. There is no long term side effects of Botulinum toxin injection reported until now.
