The science of

Anti-wrinkle Injections 

Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily relaxing overactive/ contracting muscles.  It can also block signals to the sweat glands thus  reducing excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and can also block the release of chemicals in the brain associated with the cause of pain (chronic migraine). When injected into the bladder wall, anti-wrinkle injections work on the bladder muscle to prevent leakage of urine (urinary incontinence).

There are many more medical uses

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used clinically over 25years and have a 20-year safety profile.

When we make our facial expressions (frowning, surprise, worried), our brains release a chemical message called, acetylcholine, to the place where our nerve endings meet muscles cells.

 

However, anti-wrinkle injections (Botulinum toxin) can BLOCK the messenger (the release of Acethycholine), thus our muscles won’t be able to contract temporarily.

Baby Tox 

💊 What is BABY TOX?

 

Baby tox is a more refined and much more personalized level of anti-wrinkle injection technique.

 

Minimising wrinkles sound so great, but looking frozen and having people notice that you had something done on your face is definitely not so nice. I believe that this has given anti-wrinkle injections a bad name! 

 

With this technique, much lower doses of anti-wrinkle injections are given, depending on the patient's forehead size, muscle size, brow placement, and muscle movement. Tox then will be strategically injected to minimise and PREVENT wrinkles while still ALLOWING normal facial movement. You will have a natural look with some facial movement but soften the lines.

 

Over-corrective tox can cause eyebrows to feel heavy and you would look frozen! Frequent over-corrective tox can also cause premature ageing! 

 

So prevention is key! Using small doses at early stages will minimise the patients having to undergo frequent over-correction at a later stage. Not only do you lose the natural appearance but also it costs more. The lighter treatments like Baby Tox is much less expensive.
