As one of the least inexpensive cosmetic procedures available to combat wrinkles, Botox proves popular with millions of patients around the world due to the fact that it's fast, effective, non-invasive and requires virtually no downtime.
Botox is known to help smooth lines, wrinkles and Crow’s feet. It works best on active wrinkles (those caused by facial expressions), eliminating up to 80% of imperfections.
The results are temporary, lasting between three and five months; as a result, many patients seek top-ups on a semi-regular basis, which can also have a cumulative effect when carried out over time.
Botox is a type of botulinum toxin that is typically injected into predetermined areas on the face, such as around the eyes and on the forehead.
The serum temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, preventing them from contracting when we make expressions, which normally gives away our age. This makes the face appear younger, hiding those tell-tale signs of aging when we smile, laugh and frown.
In some cases, practitioners may prescribe Botox to treat certain medical conditions, such as migraines, muscle spasms, squints and excessive sweating.
Botox is considered a "liquid" alternative to surgery, and ideally, you would be showing visible signs of facial aging with lines and wrinkles. Candidates should also understand that:

The quality of Botox treatment (both in terms of the materials being used and the medical care) will be just as good as back home, provided that you select a reliable practitioner.
In order to avoid any adverse side effects, it is important that injections are administered precisely by a fully qualified doctor or health practitioner.
Medical Departures makes the process of finding a reliable Botox clinic abroad easy. Our team performs background checks on all clinics listed on our site, which include verifying qualifications, accreditations and professional memberships. We also provide real Botox reviews from former patients so you can see for yourself whether a clinic or doctor seems trustworthy for your Botox treatment.

Undergoing a course of Botox overseas costs between 50 and 80% less than back home, depending on where you plan to travel.
As this isn't a particularly expensive procedure compared to other cosmetic surgery, it is not going to be worth the time and expense of traveling abroad specifically for Botox.
However, if you are already going to a specific destination, rather like teeth whitening or other dermal fillers, it will save you a substantial amount of money if you can squeeze it into your trip.
