The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 1 November 2019

Save hundreds on the cost of Botox in Mexico City. Whether on vacation or business trip, why not give your face a little pick-me-up with this youth-restoring treatment? It’s quick and easy with virtually no downtime, and with Medical Departures you can book a clinic that has all the right credentials.

What Is Botox?

Botox is injected into the body to temporarily paralyze muscles. It is primarily known for treating facial wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines along the forehead, eyes and lips. Botox is also used to treat other medical ailments such as repetitive neck spasms, excessive sweating, bladder dysfunction, misaligned eyes and chronic migraines.

It is made from a botulinum toxin that has been used by doctors for many years because of its properties to relax muscles and to limit their movement. Botox is actually a brand name, but other botulinum toxin products include Dysport and Xeomin.

Why Is Mexico City the Best Option for Botox?

While it isn't going to worth traveling to Mexico City specifically for Botox, if you are already planning a trip there then it might be worth taking an hour or so out of your time to get the treatment while you’re there. You’ll certainly save around 50% - so you can double up on the number of areas you get done!

Botox is fairly commonplace now everywhere, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be administered with care. It’s always wise to get a practitioner that is qualified and experienced. Likewise, going to a reputable clinic who can verify they use approved products would be prudent.

Being cautious before getting a medical procedure is a smart move - especially any that involve your face. At Medical Departures, we do background checks on all our clinics, only connecting patients with those that we deem up-to-the-mark. By performing complete background checks on qualifications, professional memberships, safety standards, and criminal records of the facilities we ensure your visit gets off to a good start.

What Does the Procedure for Botox Entail?

Before you can start the procedure, it is important to let your doctor know if you have had any kind of botulinum toxin injections in the previous four months. If you regularly use blood thinners, then you need to stop taking them at least a week before your procedure. It is also necessary to inform your doctor if you use any allergic medications, muscle relaxants or sleeping aids.

Botox does not take long to perform. The actual injections take only minutes to be administered on the face or any other part of the body. There is slight discomfort when the injection needle pierces the skin but most people are able to handle mild pain. However, it is important to make the skin numb beforehand. Your doctor can do this by either injecting a numbing medicine into your skin, by applying a special cream almost an hour before the procedure, or blasting a cold spray onto your skin for about ten seconds.

When the skin has been prepped, your doctor will inject the botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles using a fine, thin needle. The number of injections required depends on the extent of the area that is being treated. If the area being treated is the face, then typically six to eight injections will be required.

You will be able to see the results of the injections within a few days after the procedure. The effects of the toxin will last from between three to twelve months; you will need to have follow-up injections if you wish to maintain the effect.

What Is the Recovery Time and Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?

When the procedure has been completed, your doctor will ask you to sit upright for around five to ten minutes. This is done to check if you are feeling comfortable and to check for any bruising. If there is bruising on the skin, then your doctor will advise you to not consume certain medications to keep the bruising to a minimum; it will steadily reduce over the next couple of days.

For three to four hours after the procedure, you shouldn’t lie down straight on the back as the injections are still settling into the skin and muscles. You also shouldn’t rub or massage the treated area for at least a day as this can cause the toxin to move to another area. Otherwise, there is no recovery time and it is an outpatient procedure; you can expect to resume your daily activities straight after the procedure. You will be advised to avoid strenuous activities, such as contact sports, for a couple of weeks.

Botox injections are a very safe procedure when performed by a qualified doctor. The most common side effects include swelling or bruising at the injection site, headache, or flu-like symptoms. The biggest risk of Botox is that the toxin may spread to other areas of the skin and this can cause eyelid droop, cockeyed eyebrows, crooked smile, dry eyes or excessive tearing.

Who Can Have Botox?

Basically any adult can have Botox treatment. It is a relatively easy procedure to get and the biggest plus point is you do need to take time off work to get it done as it has zero recovery time. If you have any persistent or chronic medical conditions, then you should talk in length with your doctor about the safety of the procedure. Pregnant and breastfeeding women shouldn’t have Botox injections as there can be negative effects of the toxin on the baby.
