Botox treatments were originally introduced as medical treatments for muscle spasticity such as cerebral palsy, some forms of headaches and reducing excessive localised sweating in the armpits. The treatment has come a long way since in making an impressionable mark in the beauty industry.
Botox are now a highly sought after, non-invasive and successful medical treatment for those looking to erase those wrinkles or facial lines for the quick dip into the fountain of youth. With rapid advancements in medical technology since the 2000s, there is no reason the late Joan Rivers or well renowned fashion designer Donatella Versace should scare you when it comes to botox.
Let’s face it, aging is both biological and environmental but fret not, there is something we can now do about our laugh lines, crows feet at eyes or scowl lines on your forehead from the constant smiling, squinting and frowning we subject our faces to. A botox treatment could very well be the solution to all of your worrisome lines. By blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, your wrinkles and facial lines tend to relax and soften, giving you a smooth finish. For a youthful glow, discuss with your dermatologist for botox treatments combined with suitable lasers and cosmeceutical skincare.
Side effects of botox treatment
However, to avoid common and significant complications such as ptosis — the drooping of eyelids — or to reduce side effects such as headaches and bruisings, it is advised that you visit an accredited dermatologist (find an accredited Singapore dermatologist here) instead of cosmetologists and aesthetic clinics for your botox treatments.
For a safer and more natural result, opt for a dermatologist who specialises in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. Caveats? Ladies who are expecting and are currently breastfeeding or those with certain medical conditions, botox is inadvisable. Otherwise, it’s the perfect go-to treatment for a fresher renewed look with minimal downtime and quick results.
