One of the most commonly used cosmetic procedures today, the BOTOX injection is a method of temporarily improving the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and crows’ feet lines in adults. Each year, over one million adults are administered with BOTOX, gaining them a more youthful face. In the right hands, BOTOX can be used to highlight the eyes and give the overall face a youthful glow. The effects of BOTOX generally lasts about four months.
BOTOX is considered one of the safest ways to rejuvenate your look. The successful use of BOTOX is dependent on the skill and expertise of the aesthetic doctor administering it. Dr Elias Tam of EHA Clinic has had over 20 years of medical experience, more than 10 years with the substance, so you can be assured of your safety in his hands.
While people may get their BOTOX injections for many reasons, here are the top three advantages of the BOTOX treatment.
The BOTOX procedure takes very little time out of your busy schedule
The procedure takes only ten minutes to complete, which is why some people have their BOTOX injections over their lunch break. It is a very quick and simple procedure. However, you will need to consult with your doctor beforehand, so they can spend some time planning out the procedure: which parts of the face are to be injected to relax the right muscles.
Furthermore, unlike going for surgery, patients who are treated with BOTOX will not need time off to recuperate after the treatment is completed. After they leave the clinic, they can resume their lives as per normal, without any interruption to their daily schedules. The lack of downtime makes the BOTOX procedure very attractive as patients do not have to take leave from work in order to enjoy the benefits of this procedure.
BOTOX can be a preventive procedure: kill off the wrinkles before they appear!
Some studies on BOTOX have shown that it is most effective on wrinkles that are newly formed on the face, and have not yet settled. Often, these wrinkles are ‘dynamic’, meaning they only distinctly appear if you strain the face by frowning.
When BOTOX is used on wrinkles that have not yet set on your face, the substance helps to relax those muscles, helping those wrinkles dissipate before they are fully formed.
BOTOX injections can result in other beneficial side effects
Besides the treatment of wrinkles on the face, BOTOX injections can offer other beneficial side effects. One such side effect is the lifting of the eyebrow, which usually starts drooping with age. When BOTOX is injected into the region, the brows may be lifted, thus offering the face a more youthful appearance, and an enlargement of your beautiful eyes.
Finally, with a BOTOX injection, some patients have even experienced a reduction in migraines that they have previously experienced. These migraine headaches can be lessened because BOTOX relaxes the muscles that constantly contract in the forehead. As a result, patients who have recently experienced chronic migraines may experience fewer or no migraine headaches at all, after the procedure.
BOTOX injections can be a simple albeit temporary solution to unwanted lines on the face caused by ageing. It is approved for use by aesthetic clinic in Singapore and is offered by EHA Clinic. Contact us on 6235 3325 today to enquire about the BOTOX treatment.
