Botulinum Neuromodulators

What are Botulinum Neuromodulators?

Botulinum Neuromodulator is a minimally invasive, no downtime treatment and it is a commonly administered treatment for relaxing the muscles on the face for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles in Singapore.

Following the Botulinum Neuromodulators treatment, the muscles that produce wrinkles will relax and the wrinkles will reduce in appearance. It is applied in face and neck rejuvenation treatments for the easing of wrinkle lines.

What is the difference between Botulinum toxin A and Botox?

Botox and Botulinum toxin A (Botulinum Neuromodulators), although often used interchangeably, they are not exactly the same.

Botulinum toxin A (Botulinum Neuromodulators) is a neurotoxin, while Botox is a brand of Botulinum toxin A. However, most of us call Botulinum toxin A “Botox” for short. We will call all Botulinum Neuromodulators “Botox” for readability in this article.

What are
dynamic wrinkles? 

Dynamic wrinkles appear when we are expressing emotions. These lines, called dynamic wrinkles, typically occur around the eyes, on the forehead, between the brows, from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), and around the lips.

What are
static wrinkles? 

However, with repeated muscle movements, gravity, and age, these creases and folds grow permanent and turn into static wrinkles, which are present even without movement.

Dynamic wrinkles
vs static wrinkles

Botox is an effective treatment to relax and smooth dynamic wrinkles, whereas a filler treatment may be more effective for static wrinkles. Of course, it is best for you to consult your aesthetic doctor and let them decide on the best course of treatment for you.

What is the difference between
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are three different brands of neuromodulators, and all three of them are US FDA and Singapore HSA approved. Each brand has a slightly different formulation, but they all work in the same way to paralyse muscle movements for reducing the appearance of wrinkles or for face and body contouring.

Which areas
can Botox treat?

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines (Glabellar)
  • Bunny lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Peri-oral Lines (Smoker’s Lines)
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical Platysma Bands (Turkey neck)
  • Brow lift
  • Jaw slimming
  • Calf reduction
  • Shoulder reduction
  • Sweat or odour reduction

What can I expect during
my Botox treatment?

Botox is a doctor-administered treatment in Singapore, so be doubly sure that you go to a medically certified practitioner, and not any spa or home salon. You should have a thorough consultation with your doctor and share all your concerns with him before you go ahead with the treatments.

For a more comfortable experience, numbing cream will be applied on the areas to be treated so that there will be minimal discomfort.

Is there any
downtime?

There is no downtime for Botox treatments. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately after the treatment.

However, some patients may experience some swelling or bruising but these will usually go away in a day or two.

When will I
see results?

Results may be seen within a week, but optimal results typically present themselves in about two weeks. It is best to consult the doctor as it depends on the area of injection and your facial muscle activity.

How long does
Botox last?

The duration ranges from three to six months depending on the area of injection and muscle movement. Gradually the effect will fade and muscle action will return. A quick visit to repeat the treatment is all that is needed to maintain the desired result.

How much does
Botox cost in Singapore?

The price of a Botox treatment varies, depending on the amount needed for the intended area, and also the different brands that we mentioned above. Halley Medical Aesthetics is transparent in our pricing, and you can see the Botox price in our price list here. Prices include GST and there are no hidden costs.

How does Botox work for
sweat and odour reduction?

A Botox treatment blocks the nerve signals that are responsible for sweating and stops the sweat glands from being over-stimulated. The amount of skin-surface bacteria that causes body odour decreases when less sweat is produced.

What can I do if the dynamic wrinkles become static wrinkles?

A combination of therapies may be needed. We might recommend a Botox treatment first to relax the muscles to prevent them from further creasing the skin.

This may then be followed by facial rejuvenating therapies like laser treatments and Ultherapy® facelifting treatment to smooth out the lines and encourage the body to form its own collagen, which volumises the face.

Laser skin resurfacing treatments (e.g. the Fraxel® Dual laser) may also be required to further reduce the facial wrinkles by removing skin, layer by layer in a controlled manner, hence ironing out irregularities.

At times, dermal fillers may be required to fill up the deep lines that have formed.

*The use of these treatments is dependent on the clinical assessment and judgement of a medical professional. Please consult a medical doctor for an informed discussion on the use of these treatments.

Came here to do fillers. Was on a budget and had agreed to go with assistant’s advice to do 2 fillers which suited my budget but Dr Terrence Tan gave a better suggestion and we went with a more expensive filler but only one syringe first to see how it will turn out after a week. Amazing service and helpful staff.
