When looking in the mirror, do you see the signs of aging across your face? Factors like continuous UV, stress, and pollution exposure, coupled with poor lifestyle choices, can also cause crow’s feet, frown lines, and furrows on your forehead. Let’s be honest, having facial wrinkles can be extremely disheartening to most. Often anti-wrinkle creams and serums don’t provide great results. So what other non-surgical options are there to combat the signs of aging?
Botox may be the solution for you. There are many certified and qualified clinics in Singapore that provide Botox treatments. Botox can effectively help to reduce wrinkles, sculpt jawlines, and minimize pores. It doesn’t stop there, though; Botox is also used for a variety of other medical conditions too. Let’s have a look at what Botox is and how it works and at some of the top clinics in Singapore providing Botox treatments.
Botox is derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The name ‘Botox’ is the brand name for a specific Type A Botulinum Toxin scientifically called OnabotulinumtoxinA (ONA). Other brands of Botulinum Toxin Type A include ‘Dysport’, scientifically called AbobotulinumtoxinA (ABO), and ‘Xeomin’, scientifically called IncobotulinumtoxinA (INCO).
Botox is a neuromodulator that has the effect of ‘temporarily’ relaxing your muscle activity in the area injected. Botox is considered safe to use in cosmetic and medical treatments in its concentrated form. Essentially, Botox blocks the motor nerves in your muscle from releasing the necessary chemicals for your muscle to contract. Your muscle will temporarily remain in a relaxed state, resulting in smoother skin due to the muscle’s inability to contract.
This is great because it means you can’t strain your facial muscles, which causes wrinkles and frown lines. Botox is different from fillers, as fillers are used to restore volume to injected areas. Botox treatments are commonly used to smooth out fine lines, deep skin dents, and wrinkles. Injectable treatment areas include the forehead for frown lines, brows for lifting, around the eyes for crow's feet, and around the nose, cheeks, and upper lip for smile lines.
Additional Botox treatment areas include:
Speak to your treatment provider about who Botox is not recommended for and regarding the pre-care and after-care requirements to follow for Botox treatments. Botox results can be seen within 24 hours from treatment, but you’ll only see the full effect of the treatment at about 2 weeks.
The effects of Botox are not permanent, lasting between 3 to 6 months for most people. You may require Botox treatments about 3 or 4 times a year to maintain the results achieved from Botox treatments.
In Sinagpore, Botox is a popular cosmetic and medical treatment amongst both men and women. There are only three HSA-approved Botulinum Toxin Type A brands used in Singapore - Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Most licensed professionals and clinics in Singapore use the ‘Botox’ brand. In Singapore, you can get Botox treatments at various clinics, private medical practices, and cosmetic salons. When opting to get Botox, ensure that the procedure is only performed by a qualified and licensed professional, usually by registered health-care practitioners.
The product used should also be FDA and HSA-approved. Pricing for Botox treatments in Singapore ranges between $12 to $25 per unit, depending on the brand used. The number of Botox units required varies according to the treatment area to be injected and the amount needed for different skin types. A treatment could require anything from 4 to 80 units of Botox. For example, In Singapore Botox treatment for crow’s feet costs roughly between $96 and $500 for 8 to 20 units.
