What is Botox and How Does it Work?

Since repeated expressions such as frowning, raising an eyebrow, squinting, and smiling can cause fine lines and skin wrinkles over time, botox helps reduce muscle movement. Botox, whose active ingredient is botulinum toxin, works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. If used in small amounts, botox can help in improving cosmetic-related problems such as the development of fine lines and skin ageing. It prevents the muscles from contracting, which relaxes the wrinkles, giving the face a smoother appearance.

Botox injections are most commonly used on the forehead, on the lips, and around the eyes. Your doctor will inject a small amount into the specified area to weaken and paralyse the targeted muscles. As a result, muscle activity is minimised or halted to reduce the development of wrinkles.

BOTOX® Can Treat Various Skin and Medical Conditions

Botox injections are non-surgical and FDA-approved treatments for various skin problems and health conditions. They are often used on the following skin conditions:

  • Crow’s feet

  • Chin dimpling
  • Downturned lips

Botox is also used as a treatment for medical conditions such as:

  • Neck spasms or cervical dystonia
  • Excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis
  • Lazy eye or amblyopia

  • Uncontrollable blinking or blepharospasm

BOTOX® Injection is NOT Suitable for:

Not everyone can receive botox injections. Botox is not suitable for you if:

  • You have poor overall health.
  • You have existing muscle weakness on the proposed injection site.
  • You have sensitive skin or an existing allergy to ingredients found in botox injections.
  • You are taking aminoglycoside antibiotics.
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.

For any questions and concerns, it’s best to consult your doctor before getting botox injections.

BOTOX® Side Effects

If this is your first time receiving botox injections, you may experience some common botox side effects, including swelling, bruising, and mild pain on the injection site and surrounding areas, which are temporary and will eventually fade away. In rare cases, you may feel headaches within 24 to 48 hours after you’ve received your botox treatment. Drooping eyelids are also one of the side effects of botox, but these are also rare and go away within three weeks.

Is BOTOX® treatment painful?

Botox injections are not meant to hurt; therefore, you won’t have to worry about experiencing excessive pain. However, pain or discomfort still depends on your pain threshold, so you might feel a slight sting if you are new to botox injections in Singapore

How long does BOTOX® last?

The effects of a single botox treatment can last from 2 to 6 months. Once the effects wear off, your muscles regain action, and your skin’s fine lines and wrinkles gradually reappear and develop. Follow-up treatments are recommended once the results of your botox injections fade.

What to Avoid After BOTOX®

Once you’re done getting your treatments from our Botox clinic in Singapore, you need to avoid the following to ensure you achieve desired results:

  • Avoid rubbing the injection site for at least 24 hours to avoid spreading the Botox to other areas.
  • Skip washing your face to avoid causing irritation to the injection site and prolonging the redness and bruising, if any.
  • Avoid taking a nap or lying on your face for at least four hours after getting your botox injections.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise as it can deter the botox from correctly settling into your muscles and nerves.
  • Don’t consume alcohol and any blood thinners within 24 hours after getting botox to avoid the risk of bruising or bleeding.
  • Stay away from heat and sunlight to prevent any swelling or redness.

Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX® Injection in Singapore

Botox is approved for patients aged 18 years old and above. However, the mid to late twenties and early thirties are ideal for starting preventive botox injection treatments for Singaporeans who wish to apply preventive measures against developing fine lines and wrinkles.

Keep your skin as clean as possible. Greasy or oily skin before your botox injection may lead to acne breakouts. Other preparations you need to AVOID at least a week prior to and a few weeks after getting botox include drinking alcohol, taking anti-inflammatory medications, and eating food with garlic.

Yes, you can. Botox injection results are not permanent and can last from two to six months.

There are no studies about the effects of Botox injections while breastfeeding yet. However, as a safety precaution, it’s best to wait until you’ve finished breastfeeding before seeking Botox procedures. You may also consult with your doctor if you have any concerns about getting botox while nursing.

No sufficient data and studies on the safety of getting botox injections while pregnant are available. We recommend consulting your doctor if you’re allowed to get Botox while pregnant or to wait until you give birth before getting any botox treatments in Singapore.

Botox and fillers are injectables that address ageing skin problems such as wrinkles and fine lines. While botox is a preventive measure that “freezes” the facial muscles that cause your skin to develop wrinkles, fillers fill in the volume loss in the concerned skin areas to treat deep wrinkles and give it a plumper look.
