What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name for the protein known as botulinum toxin, which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In 1989, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initially gave Botox approval to address issues with the eye muscles. In addition to treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) under the arms, it is also frequently used to reduce forehead wrinkles and lines around the eyes.
When botulinum toxin is administered in modest doses, it might temporarily weaken or paralyze certain muscles which can:
> Reduce Wrinkles & Fine Lines
> Body Contouring – Reduce calf muscles
> Reduce Jaw Size & Teeth Grinding (bruxism)
There are many misconception that too much injection will give off the “plastic” appearance. However, choosing a doctor with the right skills & experience will leave your face with natural looking results. This versatile treatment offers a natural enhancement with no surgery and downtime.
Commonly used to treat aging issues
How does Botox Injection work?
Botox (Clostridium botulinum) functions by decreasing the activity of facial muscles. This is how Botox procedures treat existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of future wrinkles.
Wrinkles & fine lines are a natural occurrence during the aging process. The lack of collagen coupled with the constant muscle movements (smiling & frowning), the lines will deepen and become more prominent over time.
When injected, the Botulinum toxins will block the signals transmitting between muscles & nerves. You will observe a visible smoothing of facial wrinkles such as glabellar lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles and fine lines, and forehead fine lines.
Botox injections can be used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating, jaw reduction for teeth grinding (jawline botox), and even to eliminate acne scars, in addition to frown lines and wrinkles.
At Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic, we only use FDA approved Botulinum toxins brands.

>Botox is better for small corrections (More suitable to target wrinkles)
>Xeomin has the “purest” Botuinum Toxin (Our body will become less resistant to Xeomin)
The price of Dysport is cheaper compared to the other two brands. You will tend to see faster results with Dysport (1 – 2 days) while Botox and Xeomin will take 2 – 3 days.

What is Botox?
Botox is a muscle relaxing drug that primarily used to reduce wrinkles temporarily (usually up to 4-6 months). Botox is a protein derived from Botulinum toxin. It is a neurotoxin which disrupts nerve signalling processes to stimulate muscle contraction.

The biggest distinction is how the Botulinum Toxin spreads. All 3 brands are HSA (Health Science Authority) licensed, Botox and Dysport are more popular primarily due to longer track records.
When it comes to injectable procedures, there are always certain risks involved. As different people reacts differently to Botox, in general most patients do not experience any side effects.
There are the rare few patients who will experience drooping of muscles (eyelids or eye brows) after the treatment, however the effects last only temporarily until the Botulinum Toxin wears off.
Common side effect such as bleeding around the injection sites, headache, flu-like symptoms and local pain may occur after the treatment. Do make sure to call your licensed medical practitioner for advise.
