BOTOX indications
Indications

Contour shaping: mandibular margin lifting/face-lift injection/shoulder injection/thigh injection

 

Principle: The human brain transmits chemical electrode messages to the muscles, causing muscle contraction and movement. These messages are transmitted to muscles through nerves through a substance called acetylcholine. If excessive amounts of acetylcholine are released during the process, the muscles will become tight due to overactivity. Injecting Botox into the muscles, by inhibiting the transmission of acetylcholine transmitter at the neuromuscular junction, the muscles gradually atrophy and achieve the effect of thin face, legs and shoulders.

 

Wrinkle removal: crow's feet/brow lines/nose back lines/forehead lines/eye wrinkles

 

Principle: By injecting Botox to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, the skin becomes smoother, younger, and more youthful. It is a simple and no-surgery method. It is suitable for improving the dynamic patterns of several small parts of the face such as fore-up lines, smiling lines, eye lines, etc. It makes our face more refined. The injection effect can last for several months, and the treatment effect is good to preventing the formation of wrinkles, whilst existing lines are softened.

 

Others: excessive sweating/relief underarm odor

Principle: By injecting Botox, the effect of blocking acetylcholine at the nerve end can be achieved. Therefore it could achieve the purpose of inhibiting sweat secretion and treating underarm odor.

Most people find that the injections cause only mild local pain and tenderness. Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling at the injection site which usually subsides within 48 hours.  Slight bruising is also possible.  Side effects of these treatments are extremely rare.  Occasionally, the treatment may relax nearby muscle groups causing temporary drooping of the eyebrow or eyelids.  This may last for a few weeks but will resolve with time.  As with any medicine an allergic reaction may occur, this is however quite rare.  Conversely there may be some unintended benefits in some people such as easing of tension type headaches as the muscles in the forehead relax.
The effects can last up to six months after Botox injection. When the effect of the Botox injection wears off the wrinkles will always return to their pre-treatment state.  Treatments can be repeated at a minimum of three-monthly intervals, the effects can last longer.
