Botulinum Toxin (BTA)

Due to ageing, collagen will gradually disappear from our skin and this can lead to fine lines, furrows, and wrinkles on our forehead, around the mouth, and at the side of our eyes. The lines are created as we smile and frown and it’s unavoidable as it is as natural as breathing.

But there is a way to reduce such appearance of lines and wrinkles on our face and it’s the Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) treatment. This treatment is able to reduce and slow down the signs of ageing on our face. 

Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) (BOTOX® or Dysport®) is a type of protein that helps weaken the muscles that gather our skin into folds. Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) helps to prevent these creases from existing and worsening the signs of ageing on our skin. Our trained specialists here at VIPPS are able to detect which muscle would need to be weakened with our Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) treatment without causing any complications and horrible side-effects.

The Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) System

BOTOX is the common name for Botulinum Toxin Type A Injection (BTA). It’s a natural protein that blocks nerve impulses to muscles and sweat glands, relaxing them and thus reducing facial lines. Botulinum Toxin Injection (BTA) is injected in small amounts and is highly diluted in form – allowing it to be penetrated in you in a non-invasive way. It stops the nerve cells from reaching your facial muscles and causes it to stay stiff and paralyzed temporarily.

1. Do the facial lines become more prominent once the BTA wears off after repeated treatments?

No, this is a myth. The facial lines actually becomes less obvious with regular usage, and it also delays the onset of permanent lines.

Botulinum Toxin (BTA) is considered one of the safest and well-regulated cosmetic procedures which were approved by the FDA since 2001. It is clinically- proven to effectively and harmlessly delay ageing, and produce longer-lasting results.

3. What are the side effects?

Minimal, if any. Some soreness or bruising, while uncommon, may occur due to the injection. In rare cases, patients may have droopy brow or eyelid, mild headache, or temporary weakness.
