Botox In Singapore: All You Need To Know
Fine lines and facial wrinkles are common signs of aging. They occur due to muscular contractions as we become older.
Botox treatment is something you can consider if you want to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines such as crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox, short for Botulinum toxin, temporarily relaxes muscle activity where it is injected. This prevents muscular contractions associated with the development of wrinkles and fine lines, and thus the patient achieves smoother skin with fewer lines.

Botulinum toxin can cost anywhere between $200 to $1800, depending on the area of treatment. This is because different areas will require different amounts or units of Botox.

In contrast, treatment for forehead lines would require approximately 8 to 25 units of Botox, which can cost you about $200 to $7o0. The priciest Botox treatment area would be the face slimming treatment (also known as jaw Botox) which would require 40 to 80 units of Botox, costing you anywhere between $400 and $1700.

How different are the different brands of “Botox”?
For the uninitiated, Botox is actually a brand name for botulinum toxin injection. In Singapore, there are 2 other HSA-approved brands – Dysport and Xeomin.

Is Botox enough to treat my wrinkles?
In general, Botox is able to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles refer to deep lines on the face that are caused by facial muscle movements, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. In contrast, static wrinkles form once the skin begins to lose elasticity due to age and succumbs to gravity. A combination of therapies may be required on top of a Botulinum toxin injection to treat static wrinkles, including laser treatments, Ultherapy and dermal fillers. To make an informed decision, we recommend visiting a trusted medical aesthetic clinic for a consultation.
