Used by both men and women when the signs of aging start to show (normally in their thirties and forties), this procedure is an effective, non-invasive alternative to facelift surgery—although you will need to top-up from time to time as the effects gradually fade. 

Keep reading to find out how much you can save on Botox in the Mexican city of Cabo San Lucas when booking with Medical Departures. 

Why Botox? Is it for Me?

Even if you have taken good care of your skin and warded off the onset of wrinkles by using moisturizers, sun-block and other skincare products, it’s only a matter of time before the tell-tale signs of aging start to become noticeable; for the lucky ones with genes we all want, this might be the late thirties; for others, fine lines can start to appear as early as their late twenties. 

The stresses of modern life, along with pollution and the normal aging process also contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at a younger age, as well as your own genetics.

Regardless of your age, Botox can help keep those wrinkles at bay when carried out on a regular or semi-regular basis. 

Why Should I Consider Botox in Cabo San Lucas?

With its sand, sea, surf and marine life, Cabo San Lucas is a breathtaking holiday destination. The Mexican coastal city is not only a haven for tourists but also home to a large number of expats who have chosen to live there thanks to the lower cost of living, great climate and easy accessibility from the U.S.

As well as plentiful shopping and dining options, it also has a great nightlife and is a premier resort and spa destination. Los Cabos International Airport is nearby, which receives daily flights from across North America and the rest of Mexico; from here, the city center can be reached via an inexpensive taxi ride. 

Cruise ships also halt here, so even if you are on a floating vacation and only have a day in town, you could still get a quick course of Botox done!

Why Shouldn’t I Simply Book on My Own?

While Botox seems like a simple, outpatient procedure, it’s always advisable to choose a reliable practitioner and clinic with good, hygienic facilities and that follows recognized safety protocols. You really don’t want to take a chance with your health, especially when it comes to somebody injecting what is technically a toxin into your face. 

This is why it is always better to book through a reputed third-party site like Medical Departures. We make sure that all of the clinics listed on our web site are headed by qualified and accredited staff who are experienced and have undergone extensive training. We also carry out onsite visits, checking that the amenities and facilities are up to standard.

How Long Does Botox Take and What Is the Downtime Associated with It?

As the method involves a relatively simple course of injections, the fact that this is an outpatient procedure has made it even more popular. Once your initial consultation is over, the actual procedure can take as little as 15 minutes to half an hour. It is generally used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and Crow’s feet making your face look younger. 

Botox is actually a brand of botulinum toxin, and there are a number of other common names available, including Dysport® and Xeomin®.

While there is no real downtime associated with Botox, you must take care not to rub your face for at least 12 hours after the procedure and not lie down for three to four hours post-treatment. You may experience some bruising but this will go away. It can take between 24 and 48 hours for the effects to show (after the swelling has subsided) but around a week to show its full effect, so don’t worry if the results are not immediate.

What Is the Cost of Botox Treatment in Cabo San Lucas?

Botox is priced per unit used. The quantity of Botox required has a direct impact on the overall price you have to pay; obviously, the more you need, the more you will be paying. 

In the US, the price of Botox varies from $10-$21 per unit. On average you may pay between $300 and $500 for a single course of treatment for the whole face. 

In Cabo San Lucas, you can expect to pay up to 50 percent less when booking at one of our quality-checked clinics.
