How DOES BOTOX work? 

Small, diluted amounts of the chemical are directly injected into muscles. The chemical will then block nerve signals to the muscles. The injected muscle would no longer be able to contract as forcefully, causing the wrinkles to relax and soften.

When an aesthetic physician in Singapore performs a BOTOX injection procedure, they use a fine needle to inject the chemical into a particular region on the face. There may be minimal discomfort but no anaesthesia is required.
