Botulinum Toxin (BTX)

Dermal Filler

How does Botulinum Toxin (BTX) work? 

Botulinum Toxin Treatment
 works by reducing the appearance of wrinkles around forehead, frown lines and crow's feet around the eye on the face. It temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.

Botulinum Toxin V face

This is non-surgical jaw reduction procedure. The masseters are two 'bulky' muscles on each side of the angle of your jaw. Relaxing the Masseter muscles by injecting Botulinum Toxin is effective in shrinking the jawline, thereby reducing the square jaw appearance.


How is the Botulinum Toxin Treatment performed?

Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect, which reflects the time needed for the toxin to disrupt the synaptosomal process. In very rare circumstances, it may take as long as 5 days for the full effect of botulinum toxin to be observed.

Notes for you:

Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, or by people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.

What is Dermal Filler?

Dermal Filler
is a soft tissue filler directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area (Laughter lines, Cheeks, Lips, Chin, Forehead ) to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone, thus restoring a smoother appearance or restoring loss volume on the face due to aging as well as lifestyle changes. Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years.

Combination of Botulinum toxin treatment and dermal fillers

Don't confuse dermal fillers with Botulinum toxin treatment. Although both procedures involve injections, Botulinum toxin is to stop muscle movement that results in wrinkles. It has nothing to do with the plumping smoothing effect dermal fillers have. Because they work in different manners, many people elect to get both Botulinum toxin treatment and dermal fillers—the combination can produce a remarkably younger-looking face.
