What To Know About Botox

We’re certainly pro-ageing — we know that weight fluctuation, a change in the way our bodies feel or the way our skin and hair look are all completely natural things. But, we also know that every person is different! Perhaps you’d rather not intervene in the age-old (wink, wink) dilemma of getting older or maybe you have specific moisturisers and face serums (and maybe a go-to facial) specifically to keep your skin looking its best. On the other hand, maybe you’ve been getting curious about more involved treatments, like Botox and fillers.

What Is Botox, Filler & An Injectable?

Botox is actually a brand name for botulinum toxin type A, an injectable neurotoxin that affects the nerves and causes muscle weakening. Botulinum toxin (temporarily!) blocks the signals from a nerve to a muscle, which means the injected muscles can’t contract and tense up. This relaxing and softening of the muscle results in a smoothening look to the skin and the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles, which are usually formed by muscle contraction. The effects are temporary but can last up to several months.

An “injectable” simply means a drug that can be put into the body using a needle and syringe. And a dermal “filler” is a gel-like substance that is injected beneath the skin for various reasons, most commonly for cosmetic purposes like creating volume, smoothening lines and softening creases and enhancing facial contours. Most injectable fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and last for about six months or longer.

The most common botulinum toxin is, of course, Botox. Other brands include Dysport and Xeomin which all work in similar ways.

What Is Botox Used For?

Injected in very small doses, botulinum toxin is most commonly known for reducing wrinkles and lines on the face — formed around the eyes, mouth and forehead when you frown, smile and squint. Lines may become less and less visible after each treatment as the muscles become less prominent, and you’re not just smoothening out already-formed lines but preventing new ones from appearing. It’s non-surgical, reliable and efficient.

Botulinum toxin can also be used to slim the face and lift and define the jawline, as well as on the neck to reduce vertical neck bands. In some places, you can even have diluted doses of botulinum toxin placed superficially just under the skin to reduce oiliness. You could also use it in the underarm area to reduce excessive sweating and in the forehead to help with chronic migraines.

What Are The Side Effects & Risks Of Botox?

  • While not very common, you may see reddening, swelling and minor bruising around the injection site.
  • A headache and flu-like symptoms for the first 24 hours
  • Administering too much botulinum toxin might result in a “frozen” or expressionless face, asymmetrical issues and even the drooping of the eyelids and eyebrows. Botox is temporary, so any of these issues will wear off.
  • Very rarely, serious problems like blurred or double vision (if injected around the eyes) or breathing difficulties (if injected in the neck area) can happen.

When administered by a fully-trained physician, botulinum toxin can produce consistent, natural and predictable results. We all have different muscle strengths and placements so the treatment should be as personalised as possible. We can’t emphasise enough how important it is to consult a doctor you can trust. Concentration and dosage make all the difference. We’d highly suggest reading the Department of Health’s informational page on cosmetic procedures and referring to its list of registered medical practitioners.

What To Expect When You Get Botox In Hong Kong

Botulinum toxin injections are a nonsurgical, in-office treatment that requires minimal preparation. Your face will be cleaned and an anaesthetic numbing cream may be applied. The botulinum toxin will be injected into muscles using a very fine needle. The entire process usually takes less than 30 minutes and typically takes two or three days to begin seeing the effect.

While it requires no downtime, it’s best to avoid alcohol and vigorous exercise for 24 hours, massaging and rubbing the face for about three days and facials for about two weeks. Your practitioner should give you more detailed advice.

What To Know & Consider Before You Get Botox In Hong Kong

  • If you’re thinking about having botulinum toxin injections, it’s important to be super clear about why you want them. For example, you may achieve similar effects with skincare products and facial treatments. All procedures have some risks and if you’re disappointed with the outcome, this could impact your emotional well-being. We’d suggest giving this informational page a read.
  • Do not get botulinum toxin injections if you have a skin infection, are unwell in any way, have a neuromuscular condition, and if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. It’s also a great idea to consider all medication you take — for example, antidepressants and antihistamines do not compromise Botox treatments but aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may.
  • It’s not permanent — the effect will usually only last for three to four months (although it can last longer!)
  • A single session is sufficient to see results. You may wait a few days to see an initial effect and it may take a week or two to be fully visible but that one session will be more than enough.
  • Prices really vary in Hong Kong. While we’d ordinarily look to more affordable options, be wary of cheaper clinics that aren’t reputable and well-reviewed. Paying more and going through a licensed medical doctor is best — this is your face and body!
  • Make sure the person doing your injections is qualified and experienced. Skip salons and go directly to a Hong Kong-registered doctor. Review before-and-after photos to check their previous work and look for independent reviews online.
  • Schedule an initial consultation where you can express your needs and cosmetic desires to your practitioner. Make sure you’re comfortable with your doctor, and that their philosophy aligns with yours.
  • Ask your practitioner about their training, qualifications and experience; the name of the product, its license and where it’s made; risks and side-effects; and what will happen if things go wrong.
  • Clarify any previous dosages, which brands you’ve used before and are using now, then work out which will be most suitable for your skin. Make sure to also let your practitioner know your medical history, any allergies and all medical conditions.
  • Be wary of clinics that pressure you to purchase a higher injection dosage.
