Poison me…feel better…???
Mirror…mirror on the wall…Why do I have all this lines in my face? Well, my dear…this is the sign of aging process either within the norm or under stress. Every line represents your daily stresses in life…work…family…Husband/wife…children and money.

I have a patient today, her glabella (the space between eyebrows on the front) has a deep crease (wrinkle) that even she doesn’t make an effort to squint, it is still visible. Her husband is not happy that I will inject poison(?) on her face to erase that mark. The wife argues that she got her wrinkle from him and she claimed he is the poison in her life. Gosh!

 Keep holding the mirror…I bet few would agree with her, lol!Why poison? What is Botox? • Botox® (Botulinum Toxin Type-A, Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) is supplied as a sterile, preservative-free, vacuum dried powder consisting of 100 units of Clostridium botulinum toxin, 0.5 mg human albumin, and 0.9 mg of sodium chloride.Botulinum toxin, a potent neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. Yes, the same bacterium that can cause food poisoning! Clostridium botulinum is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium that produces neurotoxins known as botulinum neurotoxins types A-G, which causes flaccid muscular paralysis seen in botulism, and is also the main paralytic agent in botox.

OMG! Your frown lines would not only disappear…hahahaha you will also disappear forever…lol!Kidding aside…Is there any danger of botulism from BOTOX Cosmetic™?

No. Given by a trained Doctor in the correct amount, there is no danger of botulism from BOTOX Cosmetic™. Botulism is caused by very large amounts of the toxin in the system usually from eating contaminated food. Very high doses, often 100 times more than would normally be used, would have to be injected to cause harm.

The dose is very minimal, very superficial like mosquito bites. The effect can be seen after 3- 4 days.
Botulinum toxin type A is purified into a protein that blocks the release of acetylcholine. The effects are 100% reversible but Botox® typically lasts for a few months. The effect of Botox® is to temporarily weaken overactive muscles.

Ladies and Gentlemen…Yes why not? Gentlemen…Having nice body and nice faces are not only for ladies…It’s also for men. Why men are so demanding that their ladies should maintain their figure and beauty? …While men can maintain their big tummy and wrinkles???? Why?? (This call for another blog lol!)
Now…grab your mirror again…what do you see? Any lines? Horizontal, vertical and diagonal …Hmmmm… a couple maybe! Hahahaha the more you look at the mirror the more prominent the lines are…
keep holding and look…just look at yourself without any emotions.
Nasolabial fold (line from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth) this is “SMILE LINE” if this gets deeper than usual… you need derma filler (I will discuss later what the difference between a filler and Botox)…keep smiling… tell yourself… You’re beautiful!!… Indeed! Big Smile pls!
If you find your teeth darker than usual, consider cleaning, bleaching or veneer. If the alignment is not good, you have deep bite…then consider braces…if you have cavities, restore it and if your gum looks so reddish and puffy then you need to treat that first…If you have gummy smile, be happy…imagine yourself 10 years from now…it will just be fine. And if you don’t have budget…come on pat yourself at the back…everyone will grow old.:-) Why your lines get deeper? As I mentioned earlier on my previous notes, as we age, our skin sag, like it goes down vertically… now keep smiling… do you see a line at the corner of your eyes?Crow’s feet (tiny lines around the outer corner of the eyes that’s branch out) some people think its wrinkle and some people thinks its shows wisdom. Ahhhh…I rather show my knowledge and skills in actions not in wrinkle. Lol!Marionette lines ( lines from the corner of your mouth to jaw line)

Now, try to move your eyebrows up and down, try to look angry, in pain, worried and sad. What do you see? Lines..lines..lines… hahahahaha …I bet you want to buy a new mirror…be cool!

Glabella line (do you see number 11 in between your eyebrow, in the middle of your nose bridge?) how about horizontal lines across your forehead (Frontal lines)..

I bet… if you can see me now..you would tell me ..jamilamimi please stop, you’re not helping.. lol! this is the reality, whether you like it or not, we will have these  lines,remember, I am trying to explain this as simple as I can and as painless as I can….

next..do you really need to remove all these lines of aging?

Who wanted to be young and beautiful? Itaas ang mga paa!!! (put your feet up :-)) Hahahaha…Mirror, oh my mirror who are the fairest of them all… of course lahat kaming single ladies!
Scoop: Cosmetic Dentistry plus Botox cosmetic and derma filler…guaranteed to make you 10-15 years younger!What is the difference between Botox and derma filler?Botox cosmetic- works by relaxing the muscles, thus preventing wrinkles and smoothing out lines.
Botox is a safe-to-use bacterial toxin which, when injected into the facial muscles in minute quantities, relaxes the muscles and effectively improves the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by the movement of these muscles. Dermal fillers -Dermal fillers s(ie. restylane) are based on a degradable hyaluronic acid in the form of a clear gel. This gel is injected into the skin to create volume, smooth out wrinkles and restore fullness to lips. Due to its degradable nature, dermal fillers also need to be injected regularly.
Botox and dermal filler can be used together.I have seen patient who had botox and dermal filler in her lips done by dermatologist but her dentist didn’t do a good job on her teeth.It’s just depressing to even look at her mouth.I would suggest that before you do any rejuvenation procedure, check out your teeth first, then your gums and then your skin and if you need any enhancement, removing few lines then go ahead with botox or filler or a combination of both.
Don’t even attempt to change YOU… some people wants to erase all the lines in their face that they forget their neck…(though it can be treated now) and you can’t even know whether they are smiling or just being stoic .

And some wants to have Angelina Jolie lips, Marilyn Monroe eyebrow, Mix and match! it just doesn’t work most of the time.

To put volume on your lips (don’t use too much filler) but do your teeth first. Imagine yourself, with a pouty lips but when you smile..yakksss..the teeth looks horrible..it doesn’t make sense.

Your frontal lines and glabella lines are the easiest lines to remove but you still want people to recognize whether you are mad or not, so I suggest..don’t overdo it..

And you have to be very careful, botox can lift your eyebrow, if you don’t want your eyebrow lifted, just tell your doctor and if ever you ask for it, make sure it is balance on both sides.

Summary of therapeutic and cosmetic of Botox and derma filler:

-Blepharospasm (abdnormal twitching (winking) of eyelids)

-Cervical Dystonia (painful contraction of neck muscles)

-Hyperhydrosis of the axillae ( kili-kiling palaging pawis)

-TMD (Temporomandibular disorder) clenching teeth, grinding (bruxism)

-gummy smile (too much showing of the gum when in full smile)

– Wrinkles, eyebrow lift

– add volume to lips

Well ladies, are you still holding your mirror? If you’re happy on what you see, don’t think about it..
YOU are the most important…of what you feel about yourself, not your husband, not your friends but yourself.. If you can look at the mirror everyday and be satisfied of what you see…BE HAPPY!

If you still want to rejuvenate…be a better version of yourself!
