I use Botulinum Toxin for Square Jaw reduction, Wringles reduction over eyes, forehead and reducing the frownlines. I do intradermal injection for “jawlift”, “V-lift” type of face rejuvenation/ tighening, as well as armpit sweat reduction injections.
For Square Jaw reduction, which is my favourite procedure for my Asian patients who have more “rounded”, “Square” face, the effect can be dramatic. The ideal face is oval shaped, not square. Your friends may congratulate you for losing weight even though your weight is the same! Hence, it is a very addictive procedure! It takes about 4 to 6 weeks to see the square jaw reduced and lasts about 6 months. It involves a couple of small injections on both sides of the face and usually has minimal or no side effects. No numbing cream is needed.
For the Crow`s feet eye and forehead injections, it usually does not involve any bruising. You get a more refreshed look about 3 to 5 days after the crow`s feet injections, especially when you smile. Friends may comment that you look less tired. It will lasts usually around 4 months. Some patients may require numbing cream beforehand to reduce the discomfort. I would usually recommend ice as well before the injections.
For the Frown lines glabella injections, this involves injection to the muscle that causes the frown which makes a person look “angry”, “fierce”. It usually lasts about 4 months. Usually no numbing cream is needed.
I also perform Intradermal face tighening BT injections and armpits sweat reduction injections. These usually last about 3 months for face tighening to 6 months for the sweat reduction. Numbing cream is recommended for armpit BT injections and Intradermal face tighening BT injections.
Botulinum Toxin (BT) is not recommended for Pregnant or Lactating women. Please do not do it if you are suffering from Myasthenia Gravis (muscle weakness disease).
