About Anti-Wrinkle Injection

Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as wrinkle relaxers or neuromodulators, are a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. These injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, allowing the skin to appear smoother and more youthful.

The anti-wrinkle treatment involves injecting botulinum toxin into selected facial muscles to block the signal between the nerve and the muscle. This relaxes the muscles in the injected part, helping to smooth out your skin and prevent wrinkle formation. It is proven to be more effective than anti-ageing creams and it is less invasive when compared to plastic surgery. The effect of Anti-Wrinkle Injection usually lasts for 3-6 months which the procedure needs to be repeated to maintain the effect.

About Botox

Botulinum Toxin A (more commonly known as Botox) is the protein complex derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. Currently, there are quite a few types of Botulinum Toxin in use by practitioners all over the world. At Yuchi Medical, our primary choices of Botulinum Toxin are Bocouture and Botox.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. It interferes with the nerve stimulation of the muscles causing excess facial expressions. This relaxes the muscles in the injected part, helping to smooth out your skin and prevent wrinkle formation.

When Botox is appropriately used by a suitable qualitied practitioner, it is safe and has few side effects.
