BTX is a pure, refined protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles in the face. It works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
It is a convenient and effective way to minimize wrinkles, and smooth fine lines for a fresher, more youthful look. BTX prevents nervous muscle contraction signals from being transmitted to the muscles.
BTX works by blocking acetylcholine release from nerve endings. Normally, this neurotransmitter causes the adjacent muscle to contract. Doctors are able to relax these muscles and soften or remove wrinkles by preventing their release.
Your body will break down the BTX over time, causing wrinkles to return to their original appearance. Retreatment with BTX can be done to preserve your youthful look.
Pain is minimal. It is a tiny injection, and most people can barely feel it. Numbing cream or cold pack can be placed on the injection site to minimise discomfort.
It takes approximately 3 to 7 days for BTX to take effect.
BTX typically lasts for about 3-6 months depending on the area of injection, dosage, your existing facial muscle activity and skin condition. It is important to return for regular treatment to stay young and wrinkle free. Regular treatment can delay worsening of wrinkles and prevent permanent wrinkles from forming.
There is minimal downtime. Normal daily activity can be resumed immediately following treatment. Light exercise can be performed after 4 hours but it is recommended that strenuous activities are avoided for 24 hours.
Generally, side effects from BTX are rare and recovery is swift. Doctor will be able to answer your questions or concerns over minor side effects such as bruising and headache.
BTX treatment varies between each individual’s goals & needs. Our doctor will be able to advise better after consultation.
• No rubbing or massaging of the injected area for 4 hours after treatment, including facials.
• No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
• Keep upright for 4 hours — no lying on your front.
• Avoid headwear that is tightly fitted across the forehead.
