For individuals who are unhappy with the signs of aging, Botox in Mexicali can be an effective and affordable solution for treating crow's feet, frown lines, and other facial creases. By helping to soften the appearance of wrinkles, Botox treatments can offer a fresh, more youthful appearance.
A number of brand names, including Botox as well as Xeomin and Dysport are used to refer to a toxin that is produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium. It is this toxin that is used in Botox injections. This treatment works by blocking signals that travel from the nerves to the muscles. Once injected, the muscle is no longer able to contract, allowing wrinkles and creases to relax. While Botox injections are most commonly used on crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, this treatment can also be used effectively to treat lip lines and lines located at the corner of the mouth and on the chin. Wrinkles causes as a result of sun damage typically will not respond to this treatment.
Botox has become a popular method for helping to ease the signs of aging. For individuals traveling from Canada and the United States, Mexico is an ideal destination for receiving Botox treatments. Whether you choose to drive or fly, Mexicali can be reached conveniently. Additionally, Botox treatments in Mexico can be much less expensive than in Canada and the U.S.
Offering a wealth of expertise, Mexico has quickly become a preferred destination for patients who are looking for an opportunity to save money on the cost of their treatment while simultaneously taking advantage of the chance to enjoy a getaway.
Of course, it is only natural to have some questions when considering any type of medical treatment, including treatments performed abroad.

Botox treatments typically only take a few minutes. Fine needles are used to inject Botox into specific muscles. The physician will cleanse the area to be injected using a non-alcohol cleanser, such as Betadine. Depending on the physician, a topical anesthetic may be used. Botox treatment will often involve a certain pattern consisting of four or five injections on either side of the forehead. When performed on the eyes, the physician may apply two or three injections near both eyes.
Patients usually only experience mild discomfort during this procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the full effect of Botox treatment is generally achieved within three to seven days. Physicians usually advise that you avoid alcohol for a minimum of one week before your treatment. You should also cease taking anti-inflammatory medications and aspirin two weeks prior to your treatment to reduce bruising. Patients should be aware that the effects from this treatment typically last between four and six months. Results tend to dissipate as muscle action returns gradually, causing creases to reappear, although the reappearance of wrinkles may be less severe than prior to treatment.
Individuals considering having Botox treatments should be aware that bruising may occur as a side effect of the treatment. Such bruising is only temporary. Some patients may also experience headaches, which usually go away within 24 to 48 hours following the treatment. Botox treatments are not advised for patients who have a neurological disease, who are pregnant, or who are breastfeeding.
The cost of Botox treatment can vary based on a number of factors, including the number of injections received. In the United States, the cost for this treatment averages about $370, while the cost for this same treatment is about $250 in Mexico.
