Bot0x- A Popular Wrinkle Treatment in Singapore
Bot0x has firmly established itself as a popular and highly sought-after wrinkle treatment in Singapore, offering a solution to the battle against ageing skin. With its proven efficacy and minimally invasive nature, Bot0x has become a go-to option for those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
What is Bot0x?
To be precise, Bot0x is a brand of Neurotoxin. In Singapore, three brands of Neurotoxins have received approval for cosmetic use- Bot0x® (onabotulinumtoxinA, Allergan Aesthetics), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA, Ipsen/Galderma) and Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA, MERZ Aesthetics). Neurotoxins (“Bot0x”) are derived from purified proteins from the Cloistridium Botulinium bacteria. First approved by the US FDA for medical use in 1989, Bot0x works by weakening selected muscles by blocking nerve transmission. In Dermatology, Bot0x treatment is used for treating dynamic wrinkles of the face and neck, such as forehead, glabellar and crows feet. Bot0x can also be used to achieve a slimmer looking face in individuals with masseter hypertrophy (square jaw) and tighten the skin along the jawline (“Nerfertiti Lift”). Bot0x can be also used for body contouring- to slim down large calf or shoulder muscles. Bot0x is used for the medical treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of palms and armpit), bruxism (teeth grinding), Temporomandibular joint disorders, muscular spasms, migraines and squints.
How does Bot0x work?
Neurotoxins binds to the nerve and preventing release of signals to the muscle, thereby causing weakening of the target muscle group. Dynamic wrinkles are formed due to overactive facial muscle movements, and over time develop into static wrinkles (fixed lines)- giving the face aged look. Targeted treatment of these overactive facial muscles can reduce the formation of wrinkles and delay the progression of skin aging.
Results from a Bot0x treatment can be appreciated in 1-2 weeks and lasts for up to 4-6 months.
Long term Bot0x use delays skin aging- as evidenced in the photos below from a well known study1 published in 2006 where two identical twins were followed up for 13 years- one twin underwent regular Bot0x treatments and the other did not. The twin who had regular treatments had better skin quality and less wrinkles compared to the one who did not.
