Our Treatments


Anti-aging & lifting

Botox (botulinum toxin) is commonly used to temporarily block nerve signals that cause muscle contraction, reducing the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles.

At BMF Clinic, we use Allergan Botox®, which is US FDA-approved for 11 therapeutic indications, Singapore HSA approved for use locally, while its safety and effectiveness has been studied in more than 16 years of research in over 4,700 published articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Botulinum toxin, more often known as Botox, is a common procedure used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing or weakening the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, typically in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.

During the procedure, small amounts of Botox are injected into specific muscles, which blocks the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. As a result, the muscles relax, smoothing out wrinkles and preventing them from deepening.

The effects of Botox typically last for three to six months, after which further treatments may be required to maintain the desired results. Therefore, Botox is usually the preferred way to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance with minimal downtime.

What happens during the procedure?

Tiny amounts of purified botulinum toxin are injected into specific facial muscles. This relaxes those muscles, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Results typically last 3 to 4 months.

Will it affect my range of expressions?

No. At BMF Clinic, we aim for a natural look. The procedure targets only the muscles causing wrinkles, leaving your natural expressions unaffected.

However, you may experience some tightness around the treated areas following the procedure. This is normal as it is limiting muscle contractions to minimize the formation of wrinkles, and will subside within 1-2 weeks.

Will I lose feeling in the treated areas?

No, your sense of feeling remains unchanged.

While botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles that contribute to wrinkle formation, it does not affect our skin receptors.


When can I have another facial treatment?

You can safely receive another treatment in the same area after a week.

Is there any downtime?

Most patients experience minimal downtime and can resume normal activities immediately. Makeup can also be applied right after the procedure.

However, patients should avoid strenuous activities and massaging the treated areas for at least 24 hours to prevent the injected solution from spreading into unwanted areas.

What are the possible side effects?

Side effects, if any, are usually mild and temporary, such as:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Soreness
  • Bruising

Rarely, patients can also develop a mild headache or temporary drooping of the brow or eyelid.

In extreme cases, patients may also develop symptoms resembling botulism, including difficulties in breathing, swallowing, or speaking. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please consult your doctor immediately.
