About Botox

This seemingly-miracle treatment, Botox easy for the patient to undergo and works very fast. It erases wrinkles effectively and works on those deep wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction. Forehead furrows and lines or crow’s feet that may come from simple facial expressions, being stressed or squinting can cause you to look much older than you are. If you are also constantly under stress and fatigued, don’t get enough sleep or never seem to have a rested and relaxed appearance (even if you are otherwise not aged), it may be worth considering Botox treatment.

Botox is also known as a "lunch hour" procedure since it can be over in as little as half an hour. You really don’t have any signs, except that you start looking better after a few days. Botox is a minimally invasive procedure since it only consists of injections.

Why Should You Consider Botox in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur is a favored tourist destination in Malaysia since it combines the charms of a big city with a great deal of local flavor. It has a range of staying options from plush luxury hotels to bargain hotels. Eating out is not only a great experience, but you can also do it on the cheap, thanks to its many food courts and hawker stalls, for which Kuala Lumpur is famous. When on holiday, you can enjoy the sights there and even go on a hop on hop off bus to see the major tourist spots.

What’s more, Kuala Lumpur is largely English speaking and it plays host to millions of tourists. Medical facilities are excellent and doctors are well qualified. The ancillary staff is hospitable and welcoming and you will not have a communication problem. It is home to many cosmetic and aesthetic surgery clinics and hospitals.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

You may think it is quite simple to book through a web site, but this is a case of caveat emptor. There are hardly any sites that will list prices and you have to fill in forms or a questionnaire to request a quote. You also don’t have any way of verifying the antecedents of the clinic or the staff for yourself. A quick search on Google will reveal paid-for places at the top, as well as clinics' official pages, which are obviously going to be biased. In most cases, the information will be accurate, but you are still taking a chance by not booking through a trusted third party. 

When you book through Medical Departures you can rest assured that we have taken great pains on your behalf. We check out the amenities at the clinic. We make sure that the doctors and other staff members are well qualified and have the required accreditations and experience. In short, we take care of your apprehensions regarding any form of cosmetic procedure.

How Much Time Does Botox Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

Botox does not work on all kinds of wrinkles and lines. It works on those that are caused by muscle contraction or repeated movements such as forehead furrows, frown lines, nose lines, wrinkles at the eyes, neckbands and the injections can even make your smile more attractive if you show too much gum. It is not a time-consuming procedure and, in some cases, you can be in and out of the clinic in less than an hour.

The substance is injected into pre-determined areas of your face and neck with a fine needle. You will probably get a local anesthetic cream at the site so that there is no pain. Post injections, you may have some pain, redness, swelling or bruising, but this will go away soon. You will be able to see the effects of botox after a few days and after a week the full effects will be seen.
