Botox® & Dysport®
Defy time and turn back the clock now! As we age, our skin loses elasticity and texture. Lines and wrinkles are formed when we make facial expressions, due to external factors such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, stress, unhealthy lifestyle and diet.
Accentuate your facial features and regain a more youthful appearance by correcting and reducing facial lines and wrinkles to achieve a natural and youthful-looking face. This treatment can also reduce further formation of wrinkles and delay signs of aging.
What is Botox® or Dysport® ?
Botox® or Dysport® contains a purified protein and it is used to relax the wrinkle-causing muscles temporarily, giving the skin a smoother and refreshed look.
A common misconception is that Botox will result in a ‘frozen’ face. However, with the correct amount of dosage given at specific sites of injection, the results are natural and you are still able to show your facial expressions as per normal.
How does it work?
A small amount of Botox is injected to the targeted muscles, which will block nerve signals to the muscles, causing it to be relaxed. This will reduce the wrinkles and fine lines created by excessive facial expressions.
The procedure takes a few minutes. There is no downtime and you can get back to work after the treatment. Occasionally, there might be slight bruising and swelling at the injection site, which will resolve in a few days.
Areas for treatment:
• Crow’s Feet • Frown Lines
• Glabellar folds
• Skin Lifting (Dermalift) via microbotox or microdysport
Is the treatment painful?
As the injections are small, the discomfort is minimal and you might feel a slight sting. Depending on the individual pain threshold, the areas for injection can be numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream or ice pack to lessen any discomfort during the injections.
How long does the treatment last?
Depending on the individual, the effects may last from 3 to 6 months. Repeated treatments will be necessary to maintain the desired effects.
