Wrinkles and Botox

Many people know that botulinum toxin preparations (such as Botox injection) are used to treat wrinkles. In the United States, it is widely used for treatments other than wrinkles, but I think that it is mainly used in the eyebrows, foreheads, crow’s feet, and hyperhidrosis of armpits in Japan.

Botox had been used in Japan and the US against the state where the eyebands are twitching more than before but in the United States it gets used for various facial expression wrinkles in the upper half of the face and then jaw muscle (slendering the face), temporomandibular disorder, hyperhidrosis (side arm and limb), and so on.

Details of Botox’s side effects and mechanism of action are described in detail on our website, but serious side effects are rare and representative ones include injection in wrinkles between the brows, it is found below 0.5% that eyelids are difficult to open (ptosis of the eyelids). Also, we can not treat pregnant, nursing or those planning to get pregnant.

Many patients are receiving this treatment because the treatment of wrinkles that can be easily done with a clinic easily and the price is relatively affordable (from 30,000 yen). In our clinic, patients with migraine also receive Botox treatment well (from 20,000 yen).

About double eyelid procedure / upper blepharoplasty

The method of double eyelid is roughly divided into non-cutting(stich-burial) method and incision method. Among them, we are doing a special 3 point fixation method called DST which is durable for a long time. For details, I think that you would like to see this homepage, but the director of our clinic has been using this method for more than 20 years (including the experiences in the US), for well over 1000 people, not only for many Asian people, but also recently for even Caucasian patients to treat as a non-incision method of eyelid’s slack removal.

There are so many attractive people in single eyelids, so it is not recommended to anyone, but the burial method is safe, it is a method to effectively increase the opening of eyes. I think whether you used the tape or glue, but the opening of eyes looks different by slight eyelid change. In our DST burial method, not only in Tokyo, many patients from oversea come to receive the treatment.

On the other hand, if there is a lot of fat on the upper eyelids or if sagging of the eyelid is conspicuous due to aging, it may be clearer to remove extra skin and eyelid fat by the incision method. In that case we recommend incision method from the beginning.

Currently, our office is located only in Tokyo, but many people are coming from afar. Because it is a treatment that can be safely done even for a stay of about 2 days, please consult us.
