Botulinum Toxins

 

About Neurotoxin Injections

Neurotoxins injections, also known as Botulinum Toxins injections involve the placement of small amounts of a purified protein into the dermis and facial muscles. The neurotoxins used at Fusion Medical are FDA approved with excellent safety and consistency profiles. They act by blocking the nerve cells that cause muscle contractions. This relaxes the muscles, smoothens and diminishes dynamic wrinkles, thereby softening our expression lines and helps to prevent future lines from forming. Effects from neurotoxin injections can last about 4-6 months.

Dr Wenus Ho and Dr Juliana Latif specialize in providing very soft and gentle results thus avoiding the “frozen” look, leaving their patients with a very natural appearance. Their gentle approach to their patients provide minimal discomfort and each procedure takes only a few minutes.
 
 
 
 

Frown Lines/ Tension headaches

These are the lines that form between our eyebrows and on the lower forehead due to repetitive frowning as a result of stress, worry or bad facial habits. Neurotoxin injections can relax these muscles giving the face a friendlier and more youthful appearance. Relaxing these set of muscles along with another set of muscles around the temples region can also reduce the tension on our forehead that can lead to headaches.
 
 
 
 

Crow’s Feet and tired eyes

These are the lines that form at the corner of the eyes when we smile. Gently placing small amounts of neurotoxins can open up the eyes, lift the eyebrow edges and make you look younger and less tired. The results are best when combined with HA dermal fillers placed in the tear trough region which will improve the appearance of tired dark eye circles.
 
 
 
 

Jaw slimming and V shape

While a wider jaw may have been inherited as a facial feature from their parents very often Asians have a square jaw due to the subconscious grinding of the teeth at night or excessive chewing which can cause the masseter muscles to become very bulky.

Botulinum toxin when injected into the large masseter or chewing muscles on the angle of the jawline will relax the muscle and allow it to shrink in size over time to produce a more slimmed down V shape face.

 
 
 
 

Lower face lift ( Nefertiti lift)

As we age the muscles that pull down our lower face dominates over the muscles that elevates the face. This results in blunting or loss of the youthful angles of our jawline. Careful and skillful placement of small amounts of neurotoxins along the muscles of the neck and lower jawline can help give the lower face a more youthful and lifted look. The results are best when combined with HA dermal fillers.
 
 
 
 

Sweaty underarms (Axillary Hyperhydrosis)

Botox can be injected into the skin of the underarms to dramatically reduce the excessive sweating that can often be very embarrassing. It does this by temporarily blocking the nerves in the underarms that trigger sweating.
