Botulinum Injection

Why Do Wrinkles and Fine Lines Form?

Natural substances in the skin, such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease with age, causing wrinkles to form. Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process and it occurs when we make repeated facial expressions involving muscle contractions such as a smile, laugh or frown.

Botulinum Injection, often known as Botox, are used to relax muscles. It is a non-surgical treatment to eliminate moderate to severe wrinkles. Results usually show after 1-2 weeks. It is also used to reduce square jaw, creating the oval-shaped that is desired by many. With a simple procedure, Botulinum injections can enhance and contour appearance to your desired face shape.

Underarm Sweating (Axillary Hyperhidrosis)

If you always experience excessive underarm sweating, you may have a condition called axillary hyperhidrosis. People who have this condition produce more sweat than is required for body temperature regulation.

Botulinum injection can be used to treat the overactive sweat glands by blocking the neurotransmitters that stimulates sweat glands. Studies prove the effectiveness of Botulinum injection in reducing underarm sweating. On top of that, the duration of efficacy increases with the repetition of botulinum toxin A. Repeated treatment is safe and effective and results typically last for 4-6 months.
