Botox in Thailand

The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Thailand

Look younger than you have in years with botox in Thailand. You can come back from holiday looking rejuvenated and fresh-faced, with people making the assumption you look so good because you’ve had a really relaxing vacation.

One of the simplest and least expensive of the cosmetic procedures, it smoothes away lines and wrinkles and is also used in controlling excessive sweating and other medical conditions.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Believe it or not, those frown lines are caused by your muscles contracting – so no more lines if the muscles aren’t contracted. There are also around 20 medical conditions botox is currently used to treat, with more uses being found all the time.

Thailand has plenty of good quality healthcare facilities throughout – whether you are in Bangkok, or other popular destinations, including Chiang Mai and Phuket.

Some of the newer clinics and hospitals that offer services specifically with medical tourists in mind are impressive. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, staffed by qualified and experienced practitioners and with boutique hotel-like decoration, the emphasis is very much on quality and luxury, where nothing is too much trouble for patients.

It’s always a good idea to find out what is entailed with the procedure, and you should always make some inquiries yourself about the clinic and/or practitioners before you commit to any treatment. It can be rather overwhelming knowing how to choose someone reliable, which is why Medical Departures background checks should be really helpful, knowing that you can book with someone who is reliable.

What is the procedure for Botox and how long do the effects last?

The procedure is quick. The area to be treated is cleansed and disinfected, and you will be given a local anesthetic or an ice pack to numb the area. Botox is injected with a fine needled syringe throughout the area – it usually takes about 5 minutes.

After a brief rest you will be allowed to leave. The botox usually takes a few days to have any effect and the effects last between 3 and 5 months, after which you can have a top-up.
