One of the several procedures that comprise the so-called “lunchtime facelift”, it is quick and easy, yielding great results in the never-ending battle against wrinkles. You’ll be able to get back to your daily routine with very little downtime—disguising any redness with a touch of makeup if need be.
Botox is a brand name for a particular treatment containing botulinum toxin. It is used for active wrinkles, i.e., those that are formed as a result of facial expressions, such as frown lines. In the small doses used for wrinkle treatments, it paralyzes the underlying muscles that form the lines, although regular applications are required every few months in order to maintain results.
Botox can also be used in controlling excessive sweating by blocking the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.

Tijuana’s location close to the border helps draw in millions of US and Canadian visitors each year, many of whom come in search of better prices on goods and services they normally get back home. As a result, it has become a go-to destination for obtaining healthcare services and supplies as the quality can be just as good—providing that you choose a reputable clinic.

Get started with any of these recommended clinics in Tijuana for Botox:
Botox is administered via small injections with a fine-needle syringe at the predetermined areas you and your practitioner have already agreed. It only takes a few minutes per area and the effects should be noticeable right away, although it will be a few weeks before the full effect is apparent.
The effects last for around three months, but the more treatments you have, the longer the effects last.
Apart from a little redness and maybe some bruising and swelling which will subside within days, if not hours, you should be able to carry on with your normal routine immediately. Thus, you can head straight back after treatment or stick around in Tijuana to make the most of this lively border town.
Prices vary depending on how many units of Botox are used, but the average price per unit in Tijuana is around $9 per unit, totaling around $540 (CAD $660, £350 GBP, €480, AUD $700) for areas such as the forehead and crow's feet. In the United States, you can expect to pay around double this.
