Botox in Singapore

Non-Surgical V Shape Facial Contouring via Botox

In the world of aesthetics, Botox in Singapore has become a household name. This popular cosmetic treatment has transformed the way we approach ageing, offering a safe and effective solution for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But Botox’s benefits extend far beyond its wrinkle-smoothing capabilities. Gangnam Laser Clinic gives you the rundown of Botox. We will explore the uses and advantages of Botox, shedding light on why it has become a go-to treatment for both men and women seeking a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


What is Botox?

Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother and more youthful appearance. While commonly associated with treating facial wrinkles, Botox offers a range of uses beyond its cosmetic applications.


How does Botox work and its Primary uses

One of the primary uses of Botox is in the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, which are formed by repetitive muscle contractions. These wrinkles often appear on the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet). By injecting Botox into the targeted muscles, temporarily inhibits muscle activity, softening the appearance of these wrinkles and preventing them from deepening over time.


In addition to its wrinkle-reducing properties, Botox has gained recognition for its therapeutic uses. It is an FDA-approved treatment for several medical conditions, including chronic migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and muscle spasms. Botox injections can provide relief by relaxing the affected muscles and alleviating associated symptoms.


Another surprising benefit of Botox lies in its ability to improve the appearance of a gummy smile. Some individuals have an excessive display of gum tissue when they smile, which can affect their self-confidence. Botox can be strategically injected into the upper lip muscles to reduce the elevation, resulting in a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.


Furthermore, Botox has found its way into the world of non-surgical facelifts. Known as a “liquid facelift,” this technique involves using Botox along with dermal fillers to restore volume, lift sagging skin, and rejuvenate the face. By combining Botox’s muscle-relaxing effects with dermal fillers’ ability to restore lost volume, patients can achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without undergoing invasive surgery.


Benefits of Botox

One of the benefits of Botox is its minimally invasive nature. The treatment typically takes just a few minutes, and there is minimal downtime associated with it. Most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. Results usually start to become noticeable within a few days, and the effects can last for three to six months, depending on the individual.


As with any cosmetic procedure, it is crucial to have realistic expectations when considering Botox. While it can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide various other benefits, it cannot halt the ageing process entirely. However, with regular maintenance treatments, individuals can enjoy long-term benefits and continue to look their best.


V Shape contouring

V Shape face contouring treatments can help to reduce bulky masseters. These are one of the muscles used for chewing and are located at the posterior aspect of the jaw bone. The cause of masseter hypertrophy can be genetic, excessive chewing or the psychological habit of jaw clenching (bruxism).  Bulky masseters lead to a square face appearance but it is possible to reduce the masseters and achieve a more V Shape face via B-TX.


Botox Jaw Reduction price and process

Botox Jaw Reduction is a gentle treatment that injects into the masseter muscles to reduce muscle bulk safely and effectively. The effects of Botox are seen in at least 4 to 6 weeks and last up to 12 months after each treatment. Side effects are minimal and transient, making the B-TX Jaw Reduction procedure safe and satisfying for most patients. Botox can also be used to relax the facial muscles that are hyperactive e.g., the chin area. In fact, when used in combination with fillers, the B-TX effects are longer lasting. Gangnam Laser Clinic’s price for jaw B-TX in Singapore is $499.


Facial Fillers

At Gangnam Laser Clinic, the facial fillers we use are made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid and are used to ‘plump up’ areas in the face to help you restore a youthful appearance. Fillers not only help to smooth out wrinkles, but can also restore lost volume, and add projection to the facial area (e.g., chin), thereby contouring the facial shape, achieving that V Shape look. Fillers feel natural, have a high safety profile, and side effects are minimal.


Common usage of Facial Filler
