Botox in Malaysia – Reform The Self
At some point, it’s hard to ignore the vivid signs of aging you see in the mirror — little wrinkles around your eyes or lips, age spots, maybe some sagging skin. Thanks to recent advancements in science we now have alternative non surgical solutions for turning back the clock without going under the knife.
The Neurotoxins ( Botox™, Dysport™ and Xeomin™) are sterile, purified proteins produced from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum, in the laboratory. Neurotoxins injected in small amounts into facial muscles bind to the nerve endings supplying the muscle and prevent nerve impulses from traveling to the muscle.
What is Botox?
Cosmetic Botox is a precision treatment and requires the skill, technique, and know-how of a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon, preferably a physician who has many years of expertise in facial anatomy.
For aesthetic purposes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabella lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) and is also commonly used to prevent or treat horizontal lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Using my advanced knowledge of facial anatomy, I am also able to perform BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments into less common sites to create a mini-browlift, reduce lip lines, relax vertical neck muscle bands, or to aesthetically improve other features of the face.
WHEN TO DECIDE THAT YOU NEED Botox?
- Dealing with moderate to severe lateral canthal lines, known as crow’s feet
- Stop Frown Lines From Becoming a Permanent Fixture on Your Forehead
Stop Excessive Sweating with Botox Injections Under the Arms
Diminish the Deep Bands on the Neck
- Get rid of the gummy smile that always appears when you smile
ON WHAT BASIS DO PLASTIC SURGEONS DECIDE YOU ARE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?
- Medical conditions – The best candidates for Botox treatments are people who are physically healthy, with no history of neuromuscular diseases (such as multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravis), who are not pregnant or nursing and who are at least 20 years old.
- Medications – Are you taking any medications, including herbal remedies or non-prescription medications, that can increase your risk for complications or that may interfere with healing?
- Cost – (cost at end of this review)
- Age – (can’t be below age 20)
There are only 8 dis-qualifiers for BOTOX
- Existing weakness in the targeted muscles
- Ptosis (drooping eyelids)

Main Question: How Much Botox do I need
- In the glabella, which is the area between the eyes usually in women takes between 16-28 units and in males takes between 18-30 units
- For correction of crows feet crow’s feet 5 – 15 units,
- Horizontal forehead lines 10- 30 units,
- Bunny lines on the nose 5-10 units.
- Upper vertical lip lines 4-8units are needed,
- For a gummy smile bilaterally 2-4units,
- Marionette lines bilaterally 3-6units, and for chin dimpling 2-6 units.
Please keep in mind that the above are average units used, patient may need more or less then the average listed depending on their muscle strength.
As For Gummy smile Botox:
BOTOX is a popular option for reducing the appearance of a gummy smile. It works by reducing movement in the upper lip, preventing it from retracting and exposing a significant amount of gum tissue when you smile. Many people are attracted to this treatment because it is minimally invasive. However, the results are temporary, and “overtreatment” is a possibility. For permanent results, lip
Warning: Do not, do not, do not, go to a doctor that does not do this as his only line of business. Do not use a pediatrician, a general doctor, an ear, nose and throat doctor – get my point?? Do not use any doctor that has added this to his practice and sandwiches your botox with allergy shots and annual physicals.
Botox PROCEDURE STEPS
At the consultation
During the initial consultation, a Registered Nurse will discuss with you exactly what your concerns are and manage your expectations to ensure you get the best result. Then they will make treatment recommendations to align with what you want to achieve and your budget. Now’s the time to ask any questions you have, to ensure you have a full understanding of the treatment.
At your first Botox® appointment, you’ll complete a medical consent form and pre-treatment photos are taken to track your results. This initial appointment is about 30 minutes, which is longer than follow on appointments which are only around 15 minutes. Your nurse will then talk you through the procedure before starting. It’s normal to feel a little nervous – eat and hydrate before arriving to help reduce any butterflies you might have. Botox® is injected directly into the targeted muscle using a fine needle. Most people describe the treatment as ‘slightly uncomfortable’ but it is over in no time!
Botox RECOVERY – After Care
Botox does not require you take any time off from work, or life for that matter. Expect to resume your normal daily activities right after the procedure. Take care, though, not to rub or massage the treated areas. This can cause the toxin to migrate to a different area. Because you are injecting small amounts of liquid, you can notice some bruising or swelling, which goes away in 24 hours.
Some quick tips for the best results are:
- Avoid massaging or touching the injected area afterward; this may inadvertently cause the Botulinum Toxin to spread to an unintended area, experts say.
- Lying down or inverting the body shortly after injection can also cause complications, experts say.
- Avoid strenuous or vigorous activities for the rest of the day, experts suggest.
- Be sure to ask or call the medical office that performed your treatment before taking painkillers or medication directly following your treatment.
PRECONDITIONS AND RISKS
Although very unlikely, it’s possible for the effect of botulinum toxin to spread to other parts of the body and cause botulism-like signs and symptoms. But it is better to know these things upfront so you are aware of what can go wrong.
Possible complications/risks include:
- Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
- Headache or flu-like symptoms
- The most common worry is the droopy eyelid, which can happen if the doctor goes to deep or hits a nerve. Fortunately, this doesn’t happen that often and it does wear off in a few months. Your doctor will want to know about it though and in many cases, can inject additional Botox elsewhere to counteract the issue.
- Crooked smile or drooling
- Eye dryness or excessive tearing
How long-lasting Botox Results?
it takes 7-14 days to see the full effect of the treatment. Depending on the area being treated, the results can last 4-5 months.
a Patient’s Report for 7 days after Botox:
I’m 35. I just had Botox. I loved it. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning.
I’ve been seriously considering getting Botox for awhile — my squint is causing a massive crevice between my brows — but hesitation has been holding me back. There’s the fear. Who likes getting needles? There’s the stigma. What will my au natural friends think of me going under the needle (not to mention my hubby who loves me just the way I am)?
I take a seat in the treatment chair. Goodbye Grand Canyon, I say to myself as Gail gently pokes the needle into various points in my forehead. For those of you who are squeamish, it’s not like getting your blood tested; it feels like tiny pricks or pinches, not painful at all. And two minutes later I’m done. “Wow, that was fast,” I say as Gail hands me a mirror. Based on an episode of Real Housewives, I expect the needle points to look like bee stings. Not at all. My forehead is slightly red, something Gail assures me will go away within the hour.
I’m in front of the mirror for my daily forehead inspection and no matter how hard I try I can’t pull my eyebrows together. So long squint! I still have a slight line, but I’ve halted any future folds. And the horizontal lines have practically disappeared. Mission accomplished. So why hasn’t my hubby noticed?
