What is botulinum?

Botulinum is a type of FDA-approved neurotoxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This treatment was only used to treat facial wrinkles back in the 1990s. However, after years of expanding the treatment, it can now treat other areas and conditions, including excessive sweating, square jaws, and calf reduction. 

The neurotoxin Botulinum temporarily blocks and relaxes muscles, preventing them from moving. Depending on where it was administered, Botulinum helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stop excessive sweating, or relax jaw muscles, giving the face a V-shaped appearance.

How does Botulinum work?

Wrinkles and lines on certain areas of the face may start to appear as we age. The more we do facial expressions, the higher the chance we develop unwanted lines and wrinkles. This happens as the collagen and elastin fibres decrease over time. Just imagine this: when you repeatedly fold a piece of paper, its folds become more profound. The same happens when we overstretch our skin on the face. Raising your eyebrows or frowning can trigger winkle productions. These lines may not appear at a younger age, but the effects may show soon in your adult years.

This is where Botulinum Singapore treatments come in. Botulinum injections aim to ‘relax’ muscle tissues or block muscle nerve signals. The treatment can only be carried out by a certified dermatologist as the treatment includes using a toxin. As the Botulinum is injected into the area to be treated, it weakens the muscle so it does not contract. As the muscle weakens, the skin in the treated area will begin to tighten. Generally, the treatment has no major risks or side effects, especially when undertaken by a professional.

At Ozhean Zoey, the brands available for Botulinum injections include Dysport (Glabella and Jaw Botox), Xeomin (Forehead Botox), and BTX.
A very precise needle is used to administer a small dose of BTX directly into specific muscles. In general, the treatment is a painless, safe, and quick procedure. Most of our botox clients have experienced a series of minimal discomfort that lasts only a few seconds.
Results from Botulinum injections can last 3 to 6 months, based on the injection site, actual facial muscle function, skin condition, skin type, and the amount of dosage to be taken. For wrinkle-free skin, it is important to return for follow-up sessions. Regular, repeated sessions can slow the progression of wrinkles and prevent the formation of permanent wrinkles. At Ozhean Zoey, our doctors usually advise our patients to have a review session in case they need touch-ups.
For more than 20 years, Botulinum injections have been used to treat various medical problems in addition to fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum has a long track record of efficacy and is used by millions of dermatologists worldwide, including our doctors at Ozhean Zoey.
Botulinum treatments are generally tolerable, with few reported side effects. Bruising, reddening of the skin, and minor discomfort and swelling in the treated area are all common side effects that are temporary. Headaches are possible but uncommon and typically pass within a day or two. Drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids, corner of the mouth, or failure to use a straw may occur. However, that highly depends on where the injection site is located. Botulinum patients are usually told not to massage the treated region and not to lie down for three to four hours after the injection. This prevents the botox or botulinum toxin from spreading and causing other complications.
