Skin Botox: Latest cosmetic treatment from Korea

You’ve probably already heard of Botox, and how it can contribute to a smaller face and to reduce wrinkles. Have you, however, heard of Skin Botox?

Botox VS Skin Botox

Botox, or Botulinum toxin, is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions. It has also been used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Botox is traditionally injected into muscles deep underneath the skin. This blocks nerves that transmit signals to the muscle, and induces muscle paralysis. Muscles then gradually begin to shrink.

This is why Botox has been popular among people with square jaws seeking to improve their facial contours, or who want to remove deep wrinkles.

What is Skin Botox?

Skin Botox is an emerging cosmetic procedure developed by Korean doctors. It is also known as as dermotoxin, meso-Botox, mesotoxin and MISBIB.

Skin Botox is made by mixing four to five times more saline than the traditional Botox technique. This dilutes the Botox more thinly. It is injected into the skin (derma layer), instead of underlying muscles. The Botox is usually injected several times, in small increments.

So, what results can you look forward to after receiving the treatment?

Skin Botox has been reported to be effective in reducing fine wrinkles. It can also improve skin elasticity and texture. The treatment also reduce pores. Overall, people who have tried the procedure have noted a lifting effect, and more taut and youthful-looking skin.

Research has also suggested that the treatment can also help to reduce several common skin concerns. These include overactive sebum production and facial flushing.

What you need to know before your first treatment

To avoid possible side effects, you should consult the doctor about your face, muscle, fat and skin condition before the procedure.

Also, to reduce risk of autoantibody production, patients are recommended to receive their next treatment after a three-month gap.
