Botulinum Toxin A, or generally known as botox in Singapore, is a well known treatment around the world for improving lines and wrinkles on the face. In Singapore, approved brands are Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. They all contain the same ingredient – botulinum toxin A.
Besides cosmetic indication, botulinum toxin A can also be used to treat medical disorders such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and teeth grinding (bruxism).
When administered appropriately by qualified professionals, this treatment can safely and effectively help you achieve a more youthful look without appearing unnatural.
Our skin collagen and elastin will deteriorate as we age, causing more wrinkles to appear on our faces. The lines will get deeper and more apparent as we get older. This will eventually lead to the formation of permanent wrinkles – wrinkles that are prominent even when we are not doing any facial expression.
Botox treatment can address this concern. When injected into specific facial muscles and skin, botox blocks muscle nerve signals causing the facial muscles to weaken and the skin to tighten. Weakened muscles cannot contract as much as before. As a result, undesirable face wrinkles will reduce.
Botulinum toxin A can be injected in multiple areas of the face to achieve a more youthful look.
You might have heard of or seen unsuccessful procedure cases on the internet or in real life. This is usually due to inappropriately excessive botulinum toxin A treatment or poor treatment technique.
If administered by a trained and qualified practitioner, this treatment is extremely safe and has few side effects. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor before getting any botulinum toxin A treatment done.
Botox treatment in Singapore should be administered by trained doctors.
You will only feel minimal discomfort around the injection area. Numbing cream or ice packs can be used to reduce discomfort further.
There is minimal downtime after injection, in which patients can resume their work immediately after treatment. Mild swelling and needle marks will disappear very quickly.
Results typically last for 3 to 6 months depending on the injection area, facial muscle activity, dosage, and pre-existing muscle and skin condition. To retain youthfulness, regular treatment at optimal interval can slow down the progression of wrinkles formation and prevent permanent wrinkles.
Cost of botox treatment in Singapore varies from $100 – $300 per part (for example the forehead).
One thing to note is that this treatment in Singapore is generally more costly compared to other countries like Korea, Australia and the UK.
At SOL Aesthetics Medical Clinic, treatment is approximately $150 – $200 per part.
