Botox on Cheeks in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Facial Wrinkles Reduction

What is botox?

Botox is the trade name for a drug called onabotulinumtoxinA. Botox is mostly known for its cosmetic application in fighting the effects of aging on the skin. In cosmetics, Botox is used aesthetically to combat the effect of frown lines, crow’s feet (tiny wrinkles around the corner of the eyes) and forehead lines on the face.

Botox is a substance that is produced from a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. These bacteria are found naturally in lakes, soil and forests. They produce a toxic chemical that in a high dose can be poisonous. However, scientists have found that by using these chemical in very small amounts, the chemical can be very useful in a variety of situations in the medical world.

How does botox on the cheeks work?

Botox injections causes weakness to muscles as the chemical blocks nerve signals from transmitting to the muscles. When this happens, the muscles involved do not contract. On the face, Botox injections causes weakness in certain muscles and doesn’t totally paralyze them. Hence, patients can still have facial expressions. What Botox does is that it limits a person from making expressions that leads to the lines and wrinkles we see on the face such as a frown or a grimace.

Because of the way Botox works, wrinkles that are caused by gravity and sun damage are not suitable to be fixed by Botox. Always speak to a doctor to seek advice for the appropriate treatment.

FAQ & Questions.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions by you, answered by our doctors.

The time varies from person to person. Some people see visible changes after two days while others take up to two weeks to notice a difference. On average, it takes a week before someone sees a change. Factors that affect the time for results to be seen include age, the degree of wrinkling and the muscles underneath that are involved in causing the lines.

Again, this varies from person to person. On average, Botox injections will last around four to six months. After this period, the effect of Botox in relaxing the facial muscles will start to wear off and the muscles will start contracting again. However, the residual effect of the facial expressions would not be as deep as the muscles have had time to relax. After this period, you are able to receive more injections should you wish to maintain the appearance.

The effect of Botox treatment is not permanent. After three to six months, the effect will wear off and the facial muscles start contracting again causing the lines to reappear. However, without Botox the lines would be more severe. After these period, it is generally safe to receive another Botox injections. Injections can be done as many times it is needed as long as it is within a reasonable window of safety to ensure you do not receive too much of the substance at once. Your doctor will be able to advise you on this matter.

Finally, a chronic severe migraine that does not respond to any other might be fixed by Botox. This is not however the recommended treatment for the more common tension headache.
