BTA (Botulinum toxin type A)

What is BTA?

Botulinum Toxin Type A, commonly known by brand names such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, is a highly popular injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment involves the use of a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When administered in small, controlled doses, Botulinum Toxin Type A temporarily paralyzes targeted facial muscles, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. It is widely used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles formed from repetitive facial expressions such as frowning, squinting, or smiling.

How Does the treatment work?

BTA works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. When injected into specific facial muscles, Botulinum Toxin Type A inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. By preventing the muscles from contracting, the treatment allows the overlying skin to relax and smooth out, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure is relatively quick, often taking only 10-15 minutes, and involves minimal discomfort. The effects of BTA typically begin to appear within a few days after treatment, with full results visible within two weeks. The effects usually last between three to six months, after which follow-up treatments are necessary to maintain the desired results.

What are the benefits?

Smooths out wrinkles and fine lines

BTA effectively reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. By relaxing the underlying muscles, the skin becomes smoother and the wrinkles less pronounced.

Minimally invasive with no downtime

The procedure is quick and minimally invasive, involving only a few small injections with a fine needle. There is no need for anesthesia, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment, making it a convenient option for busy individuals.

Quick procedure with virtually painless injections

Most patients experience only minimal discomfort during the injections, often described as a slight pinprick. The treatment session is typically brief, allowing patients to fit it into their schedules with ease.

Versatile

BTA treatments are highly versatile and can be customized to address a variety of cosmetic concerns beyond just wrinkles. It can also be used for brow lifts, treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and even reducing the appearance of a gummy smile.

The place is neat and Dr Jade Lim is very attentive and knowledgeable. Hope the air-cond can be serviced regularly as at times the room can be quite warm and stuffy.

I felt welcomed and valued. The doctor took the time to explain every step of the process, from the products they use to the expected effects and downtime. What truly impressed me was their genuine approach; they never once pressured me to commit to anything. Instead, they listened attentively to my concerns and provided thoughtful recommendations. Thanks to their professionalism and warmth, I finally feel like I've found my place. I am already booked for my next treatment 😁 I can't recommend this clinic enough!
