Botox in Cebu City

The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Cebu City

Botox in Cebu City is a great way to get rid of the lines and wrinkles on your face. Botox is an easy procedure that’s minimally invasive and can be done in a short while. It is a good option if you are traveling to Cebu City; when there, you can get it done at an affordable price.

Botox is injected into marked places on the face with a fine needle and works by paralyzing the muscles that have contracted, giving rise to wrinkles. When the muscles are paralyzed the skin becomes wrinkle free.

The face is one of the first places that you notice that show signs of aging; other parts of the body can be covered, but not the face. The tell-tale wrinkles, nose to mouth lines or frown lines, forehead furrows and other lines on your face make you look older. These lines are exacerbated by stress, pollution, weather, sleeplessness and fatigue.

Why consider botox in Cebu City?

The Philippines is fast emerging as a medical tourist destination and the local government is doing a great deal to promote medical tourism. Cebu City is well connected globally thanks to the international airport nearby. It is a reasonably short haul flight from Australia and New Zealand and also attracts medical tourists from Japan and even western countries. Residents of many developed countries get a visa on arrival valid for a month, making travel even easier. It is not only a premier medical tourism destination, but also a great place for a holiday.

Cebu City offers a mix of the old and the new thanks to its spanking glass towers, quaint older areas, hospitality and service culture and also natural beauty. With the many islands around you can have your pick of white sandy beaches and azure waters to indulge in swimming, diving and other water based activities. Cebu City is also home to innumerable hotels and restaurants as well as cheap shopping.

Why can’t you simply book on your own for botox in Cebu City?

If you are traveling you may feel that you can simply go to the city, enter any cosmetic clinic and get botox done, particularly if you are lured by promotions and offers. There are numerous clinics in malls and hotels and shopping areas. Be warned that while these may be tempting, you are always at risk even when undergoing a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Botox is actually a poison and, apart from regular risks of allergies and reactions, if the treatment is done according to international protocol, you can be at higher risk of developing problems. As a tourist, you certainly don’t want to mar your holiday.

It is better to book through Medical Departures and lock in your treatment early on so that you get good care. That is because we carry out a thorough investigation into the clinics and hospitals we list on our website, check out their amenities, make sure that there is no communication problem and that the price is right. More importantly, we check out the qualifications, accreditations and experience of the plastic surgeons so that you are safe.

How long does botox take and what is the recovery period?

After an initial consultation when the doctor will check out your face and wrinkles and recommend treatment, the actual process will take half an hour to an hour. You will have a topical anesthetic cream applied so that you don’t feel any pain. Then the doctor will inject the botox on the markings on your face. Soon after you will be free to go. However, you will face some restrictions regarding activities and sun and water.

You will also be told not to rub your face for a few hours so that the botox does not spread anywhere. You may have some redness, swelling and bruising for some time and the effects of the injections may take up to three days to manifest. Apart from that you will be mobile and not in bed. Most people are able to carry on their normal daily lives within a few hours.

What is the cost of botox treatment?

Botox is sold by the unit, so it depends on how many units are needed for your face. Some doctors charge per area of the face instead of units, so cost can vary a great deal. The cost of botox in Australia can vary from AU$ 1,500 to AU$ 5,000. In Cebu City you will pay between one quarter and on thirds the price.
