What is BTX treatment?

BTX contains a type of neurotoxin produced by a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum in Singapore. In the 1990s, it was only used to treat facial wrinkles but it can now treat other areas and conditions such as excessive sweating and calf reduction.

In Singapore, there are 3 botulinum toxin brands approved by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA): BTX, Xeomin, and Dysport. These are the only brands that can be prescribed and used by licensed doctors with years of experience in this practice.

BTX is a safe, fast, and effective injectable in Singapore and the most-known brand when it comes to botulinum toxin.

How does BTX treatment work?

BTX treatment aims to ‘relax’ muscle tissues or block muscle nerve signals. The botulinum toxin is injected into the treated area and works to weaken the muscle to reduce or block the muscles from contracting. As the muscles in the area weaken, the skin will begin to tighten.

What results can I expect after BTX treatment in Singapore?

After BTX treatment, you will notice the muscles and movement in the treatment area feeling more contracted.

Results vary depending on why you are getting BTX treatment, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles: your skin will look smoother and firmer.
  • Pain and discomfort: you will experience a significant reduction in your pain and discomfort at the treatment area.
  • Migraines: you will find that any discomfort or pain felt from migraines will reduce.
  • Drooping eyebrows and eyelids: your eyebrows and eyelids will look more lifted

For most patients, it takes 3 to 4 days to notice their desired results. The full results of BTX treatment should be visible within 10 to 14 days.

How many sessions of BTX treatment do I need?

Generally, the effects of BTX treatment can last for 3 to 4 months. To maintain the effects of BTX treatment, you can get retreated once the effects have worn off or once every 3 to 4 months. In saying this, there is a possibility of your muscles training themselves to contract less as time goes on and you may be advised to wait longer intervals between each session.

If you do want to consistently get BTX treatments, your doctor will advise you on how many times you will need to get retreated depending on your unique needs or how long you would like to maintain your desired results.
