Botox in Manila

The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Manila

Why Should I get my Botox in Manila?

Manila provides a huge pool of highly trained and experienced doctors to choose from for Botox injections. Not only does Manila have the quality of care you need, and the prices you have to see to believe – you’ll also find an incredible opportunity to experience the unique blending of Malay, Spanish & American cultures, and white, sandy beaches. It also makes a good base for exploring the rest of the country, which is rich in biodiversity and wonderful to explore.

What happens during Botox?

When you arrive for your Botox treatment, you’ll first have a consultation with the doctor. You’ll talk about your expectations, and the doctor’s suggestions of how to proceed. Usually the injections happen during that appointment, after the consultation. The Botox will be prepared, and the areas to be treated will be cleansed. Anesthesia is generally not used. Even though several injections are performed, the needle is very small, and pain is minimal.


Application techniques are generally the same, but may vary in dosage, and how long the effects last. Three brands are:
Botox Cosmetic – most widely used

Botox is also used to treat non-cosmetic conditions like muscle spasms, facial asymmetry (like Bells Palsy), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, and strabismus (crossed/lazy eye).

How long will the procedure take to do?

A Botox session will take about 10 -15 minutes, once the consultation is complete.

What does the recovery process look like?

You can return to normal life as soon as you walk out the clinic door. You’ll want to walk around and/or sit upright, but take it easy, avoiding strenuous activity for the rest of the day. You may have some redness or swelling around the injection sites, but that should resolve quickly.

You can expect your results to show within a week, and last for three to six months.
