Reduce deep facial wrinkles and creases (crows feet, frown lines, neck wrinkles), firms loose muscles around the chin, helps alleviate headaches, reduce excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis).
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The procedure is very quick and takes less than 5 minutes.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
The injection itself is painful when the needle comes into contact with the skin. If you have a low threshold for pain, you would find this procedure somewhat painful.
ARE THERE ANY COMPLICATIONS OR RISKS FROM THE PROCEDURE?
If a patient develops side effects, these tend to be mild and temporary. The injections, rather than the botulinum toxin itself, cause most mild side effects. For example, a patient may occasionally bruise. If this happens, the bruising lasts about 1 week.
After receiving injections, people have experienced:
Mild headache (uncommon)
Weakness in a neighboring muscle, leading to a temporarily droopy brow or eyelid (rare).
Signs and symptoms of botulism, including problems breathing, swallowing, or speaking (very rare)
To prevent the injected substance from spreading to areas where you do not want it, you’ll need to take a few precautions:
Do not rub or massage the areas where you received the injections.
If you apply makeup, take care not to press or rub it in.
Wait two hours before you engage in strenuous physical activity. This includes lifting heavy items, working out, and any other physical activity that raises your heart rate.
If you find any allergic reactions or rashes occurring within 48 hours after the procedure, please contact us using our clinic hotline number. Our staff will arrange a separate consultation appointment for a Doctor to review your previous treatment.
WHEN IS IT SAFE TO DO ANOTHER BOTOX INJECTION?
You can have another treatment when the excessive sweating or lines and wrinkles return. With repeat treatment for lines and wrinkles, the muscle may thin, leading to longer-lasting results.
