Botox in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Puerto Vallarta

Get Botox in Puerto Vallarta - just the holiday pick-me-up you need to make you feel like a million dollars and erase those aging wrinkles.

Botox is widely used throughout the world for for skincare, but it is actually a toxin that has to be used with caution. Apart from its popular cosmetic use as a treatment for wrinkles, it is also used medically for a variety of problems like various muscle spasms and spasticity including overactive bladder syndrome, migraines and excessive sweating.

As a wrinkle treatment, botox is injected into the skin and serves to disrupt the signals from the nerves to the muscles and so prevents muscle contraction. When the muscles don’t contract the skin, too, relaxes and the wrinkles disappear. It is most effective for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet and other deep wrinkles.

How much time does botox take and what is the downtime associated with it?

It is injected into different muscles in the face with a thin needle. Although Botox is actulally a brand name, it is the common term used for this procedure, even if other brands ae used, such as:

Myobloc (RimabotulinumtoxinB or botulinum toxin type B)
Vistabel (OnabotulinumtoxinA or botulinum toxin type A)
Bocouture, Xeomin (IncobotulinumtoxinA or botulinum toxin type A)
Dysport (AbobotulinumtoxinA or botulinum toxin type A)

Most botox procedures are over in about half an hour. The doctor will most likely apply some topical anesthetic cream on the face and then inject you at the designated spots. You may have some minor discomfort, headache or even slight bruising and you will be told not to rub your face for several hours and not lie down for three-four hours. The results may take a few days to show up.
